Overview

Memphis, TN is buzzing over a sex scandal that could upset one of the city's oldest black political families, and it is all centered around one woman - Ivy Winters. Ivy Winters is a college queen on the rise to becoming the next big thing to hit the Memphis marketing industry. All she has to do is finish her last year of college with top honors and plan the biggest wedding event of the year, before she's off to being Mrs. Grey Henderson. Her five-year plan is working out smoothly until her fiancé dumps her. In utter despair, she falls into the arms of another man and ends up pregnant by either the love of her life or the man of her dreams. Grey Henderson knows what he wants and gets it. Labeled the most eligible bachelor in Memphis, secured by riches and power, and son to the most hated and loved Mayor the city has ever seen, his only goal is to become the next Congressman of District 17. But like many men, Grey is a slave to sex. Marriage to Ivy would win the seat, but his desire to continue as a single man creates waves when he breaks off their engagement only to discover he wants her back. Italian lover, Lt. Nicola Agosto is one of Memphis' top cops. Living life on the edge and sleeping around is a past time he enjoys when he's not serving as the Mayor's henchman. Operation Paycheck is a opportunity that will put his specialized unit in the forefront of a huge movement. However, all his plans come to a halt when he possibly gets Ivy pregnant. Now, not only does he have to face the Henderson family, but he also has to face his love for Ivy.

Ivy's Twisted Vine Redux 3.8 out of 5 based on 0 ratings. 43 reviews.

Ivy has to be the most frustratingly oblivious heroine i have ever endured. In the beginning i empathized but halfway through i just wanted to smack her and tell her to wake up and get real. In the end i just wanted someone ANYONE to paint her a clear picture no woman can be this dumb. Latrivia should be ashamed

The absolute best thing about this book was the unpredictability!!!! I don't think I've ever read a "romance" novel where the lead characters are what most people would call abnormal, strange, etc. If all of this authors books follow this trend she has just earned a fan. As I've previously stated.... this book was so awesome in a sort of weird strange way!

I really liked Nicola and Ivy's story, although I really wanted to strangle Ivy. Excellent read, you really should buy

I really don't know where to begin... its a case of one night of sex equates to two people destined to be together. This story was just too poorly developed to justify claim or convince me that the two characters experienced this. This author has better stories, skip this one and read the Medlov's instead, that series is far better developed and well written. If you just have to read this one, borrow dont buy.

This was a great read , if you liked this book then you must read the Medlov Crime Family series. Can't wait for the sequel of Ivy's Twisted Vine.

The story was long. The heroine had little to no backbone. She constantly went from one decision to the other. Her fiance lied numerous times and she continually believed him, even when, she knew he was lying. Their continual conflice caused unnecessary drama from all the other characters. It is not a book I'll read again.

I would have given it 5 stars if Ivy hadn't been such an idiot.

The book starts out slow, but it does pick up and gets pretty good. Ivy, the main character, is ridiculous most of the time, but Nicola is yummy! JaKai

Interesting concept, well developed plot & characters.

The plot is somewhat predictable but a page turner nonetheless. It did seem drawn out sometimes and you wonder why she just doesnt make the obvious right selection however this is a good book

... and Nico finally gets his head on straight. A great cast and a good story. Needs editing. Otherwise, well worth the time to read and enjoy.

I liked this book but I thought it was too long . I would like to have read more about Nick and Ivy. I understood that the story was twisted because of the long process to get to the end of this story.
