He also wants nothing to do with marriage, babies, and all that comes with it. He's content with being the stoic, but quiet Uncle Jacks.

Apparently, I've been living in a cave. I had no idea about Carrie Ann Ryan. This series was crackalicious. The town of Holiday, Montana is a Mecca for the paranormal. The antagonists are completely one dimensional and the love is borderline insta. Ryan's writing formula was addictive. I couldn't quit these books.
Dreams of Ivory is the last in the series :-(. It's about the only single Cooper brother (the series is based around 5 brothers). Jackson Cooper is the town dentist. Years ago, he had

Jackson the last and oldest of the Copper brothers to marry is a watched man. He has no interest in the women of the town. Giving a cold shoulder to a lot of women gets around a small town, like Holiday. Holiday is a magical place. A mecca per say of magical creatures and people. Everything from gnomes, Santa executives, elves, leprechauns, ghosts, witches, banshee's and a assortment of others. So it is not surprising that the Queen of the tooth fairies lives there as well. Jackson's family has ...more

The fifth book in the Holiday Montana is more surprising than the others and introduces some very interesting characters to this magical town.

Even though his brothers have become part of the paranormal world, Jackson hates magic and wants nothing to do with marriage and babies. But he has to reevaluate when Honor, an ex-girlfriend returns to town and when he ends up protecting her from someone that didn’t want her to return he finds out that she’s one of the tooth fairies.

It is so bitter sweet writing this. Bitter because it is the last of the Cooper Brother story arc and I do so love me my Cooper brothers. Sweet because it was made of amazing, drizzled in awesomesauce and sprinkled with spectacular. Not only do we finally get to see Jackson's story, but we get to see more about all of those steamy brothers. I will admit it, there is one scene in this book that had me so filled with happy that I actually cried. Yep, real tears it was so amazingly wonderful.

Jackson Cooper has intrigued me throughout the other 4 books. He is the eldest Cooper brother and wants nothing to do with magic or getting married. Fortunately or unfortunately (depending on your view) you don’t always get what you want and sometimes that is the best thing that could happen to you. This is a terrific second chance romance.

Finally the last brother Jackson gets his turn

Jackson is the last single Cooper brother and that's the way he wants it to stay.
Jackson hates magic, he thinks that it has caused enough problems for their family. Jackson dated Honor in secret eight years ago for a summer. He pushed her away so she could get her degree and never expected to see her again.
Honor returns to Holiday to take over her duties as a tooth fairy. Her aunt is the head of the fairies called the Ivory Queen. Honor is supposed t

GRAntor the last Cooper brother

This is the last of the Cooper brothers finding his HEA. I enjoyed reading the stories about the other brothers so was curious to see how Jackson's story would go. He was the brother that didn't want anything to do with magic and ends up a sandman. His summer fling from years past comes to back to town to take her place as a tooth fairy. This was very cute considering Jackson is a dentist. Someone is out to get Honor and makes Jackson a sandman. Jackson then has t

Probably my favourite in the whole series.
A dentist and a tooth fairy, a match made in heaven, except for a couple of problems. They have a past that hurts and someone who is not happy Honor has returned to Holiday.
Interesting turn of events in what happens to Jackson. Jackson is the eldest Cooper brother and the only one without any magical leanings. That is until a very disgruntled person turns him magical in order to hurt Honor.
Liked Honor, found her engaging.
The epilogue was amusing and swee
The Book Junkie Reads . . .
The sandman and the tooth fairy. The things the get up too. The read gave more possible characters an opening to come to Holiday MT. Cooper connection to Holiday finds meaning. There was a lot more to Holiday than previously revealed.

Gregory did his job and relayed each character with clarity and distinction.

Jackson and Honor are a perfect match made in Holiday - thankful they have each other to do their new jobs (Jackson's kind of funny since he's a dentist).

I loved all of the books from Matt to Jackson! The Coopers and each of their women made some power couples. I LOVED how they ALL worked as a family team. GREAT JOB!

I love Carrie’s books, she is one of my favourite authors.

I loved this book from start to finish.

I love the characters and the story.

Jackson doesn’t like magic or that his entire family has been touched by some sort of magical holiday being. He hates the idea of babies and such cause to him it isn’t something that he wants or does he? Oh, he loves his family just not the magic stuff or the hormonal pregnant women (yes, every one of the Cooper Brothers that are married, their wives are PREGNANT…)

Honor left town and her job as the tooth fairy eight years ago but it’s time for her to come back, the Ivory Queen (her aunt) needs h

Dreams of Ivory Book #5 of the Holiday Montana Series by Carrie Ann Ryan

If you’ve been following this series you can almost guess by the title what the next Magic is. May not be a holiday but’s it’s needed all year round. But of Course the Tooth Fairy. I absolutely enjoyed this book.

Again, Carrie Ann Ryan doesn't disappoint! As much as I was itching and dying to read the final book in the Holiday, Montana Series, I had that sad feeling as it was the end of a great series! I had the opportunity to get to know the Cooper brothers and their significant others. This was a series that caught your attention from the very beginning and continued to make you want more. All the books were sexy, steamy, funny, whimsical, and had a different twist not found in PNR. The entire series r ...more

Holiday, Montana, is a small town that is filled with folks that are touched with magic, and some that are not. Jackson Cooper, the eldest of the Cooper men, hates magic. Like, absolutely loathes it, and wants nothing to do with it. Which is problematic, because all of his brothers and their families are magical in some way. Enter Honor Bridges. Honor's Aunt Clementine is the Queen of the Tooth Fairies, and Honor is a tooth fairy herself. She and Jackson have a past, which refuses to stay buried ...more

Dreams of Ivory is the 5th book in the Holiday,Montana series by Carrie Ann Ryan and also the last of the five hot cooper brothers, but it isn't the last of the series thank god. A great book to read.

Jackson Cooper wants nothing to do with magic, he hates it so much even though his brothers are in one form or another involved with some holiday magic. His brothers are all married and also strange occurrence all four Cooper wives are expecting mini Coopers, and Jackson well he doesn't want anythin

Dreams of Ivory is the 5th book in the Holiday Montana series. Having not read the other four I was concerned I may not be able to catch up and be lost with some of the characters. My fears were put to rest. I was impressed with the way Mrs. Ryan was not only able tell Honor and Jackson’s story but also include the other Cooper brother’s and their spouses.

Jackson is a hot, broody, older brother who hates magic and wants no part of it. Enter Honor, a sweet, loving tooth fairy who has put off her

I just love the Holiday, Montana Series. I think it is great. What's not to love about the Cooper Brothers. But truthfully I have been waiting for Jackson's Story since I I read book one. And Carrie Ann Ryan did not disappoint. I highly recommended you read the first four books before reading Dreams of Ivory, Jackson makes appearances in each one. Holiday, Montana is a magical town especially the Cooper Brothers but Jackson wanted no part of it. Jackson was very straight laced, the rock that hel ...more

This was a good ending to the series. Jackson doesn't like all the magic, but I really didn't get the feeling off of him the earlier books. I also didn't get the extra grumpy feeling that seemed to prevail here

Anyways, anti-magic man meets up with woman he had a fling with a few years back. She left to pursue her career after he had a hissy fit that she wasn't sure what to do in deciding want to stay with him. Considering he never even introduced her to his family, I can see why she left

Dreams of Ivory by Carrie Ann Ryan is the fifth book in her Holiday, Montana series. The book can be read as a standalone but it is more enjoyable to read the four brothers's stories to get a better understanding of the town of Holiday and the Cooper family dynamics.

Dreams of Ivory is the love story for the oldest brother Jackson and a tooth fairy Honor Bridges. I don't think I've ever read a romance involving a tooth fairy before so this concept really intrigued me. I especially love how Carrie

“They sat down to eat after Honor set the table. He knew she wanted to help in some way, but there was no way he’d let her near the stove. “Stop grinning at me like that,” she said after she swallowed her first bite. “Yes, you’re an amazing cook, and I love eating your food, but that smile means you’re thinking about how I’m not allowed near your stove. It was one time, Jacks. One time.” “You burned the pot, Honor. Boiling water. Water, Honor.” 1 likes
“Jackson blinked again, almost at a loss for words as he ignored the mini Cooper reference, a term the girls loved and had begun calling their offspring. Having four women all entering the second trimester of their pregnancy at the same time was just about killing the brothers. How the hell had he become part of this? He wasn’t married to any of them, and yet now he was the peanut butter bearer. Hell. “Four…four types of peanut butter?” Jackson asked. “Yes. Four. I’m alone in the house with four pregnant women who all want peanut butter of their own choosing. For the love of God, help me.” The panic in his brother’s voice made Jackson smile. Matt had the pre-daddy jitters. In fact, all his brothers did.” 1 likes
