Manhattan Ten, Book 2

If Ivory’s fellow flight attendants whisper that she has ice in her veins, they’d be right. She’s spent years ruthlessly suppressing her dangerous ice powers, pretending she didn’t grow up wild on the tundra.

Her legendary coolness has held solid—until a crazed attacker snaps her composure, unleashing her ice beast and b

While Ivory is the second book in the series, its events actually take place before Temptress. However, each book reads like a standalone, so you can read them in whichever order you prefer. I am glad that I read Ivory second though, because it’s even better than the first book! Again, we’re following a woman with super powers who’s attempting to stay under the rader. Valdis aka Ivory (as the public names her when they discover her) is an airline attendant running from her past. On a flight from

This is the second book in the Manhattan Ten series, and I loooooove it. Lola's face paced writing makes it a quick and easy read. It's got just enough action and romance to make this girl happy. Can't get enough of it! Read Temptress first, and then read this one!!! :)

Liked this one better that than the first one! But I noticed Continuity Errors. !!! Because it was short, I feel like some steps were cut out in the character development, but it was still great!

Opening Sentence: Eight hours out of Aukland, the plane’s temperature controls fizzled.

The Review:

I don’t know about the rest of you, but there is just something about a superhero that fascinates and charms me. The question often gets asked: What super power would you choose? Invisibility? Super strength? Immortality? Teleporting or Flying? But I think this misses the basic charm of superheroes, which is

Another sexy superhero adventure for the Manhattan Ten! Anxiously awaiting the next installment!

This second installment in the Manhattan Ten series continues with the sexiness of the heroes we enjoyed in Temptress, but is actually set before making it a sort of prequel. The book is appropriately named for its heroine, Ivory (real name Valdis). She’s a sassy flight attendant who has the ability to manipulate ice. Valdis tries her best to liv

*Warning: This is the second book in a series. While I really don't like spoilers, you might find some slight Book 1 spoilers in this review.*

A Nice Sequel/Prequel...

Ivory is the second book in the Manhattan Ten, but it technically takes place before the events in the first book, Temptress. And I really enjoyed Temptress when I read it last year (my review here), so I was excited to get Ivory from the author as well. And I think that

Actual Rating: 4.5 stars

This is the second book in The Manhattan Ten series but was published before book 1. And still, you would never feel the story'd been compromised for this reason. This book narrates a very different story, two different lead with different perils to deal with, and all of these basing on the very familiar concept of superheroes and romance from the previous book.
Ivory, or Valdis, is the female lead here. And pretty obviously, she has her own pow

GENRE: Fantasy
THEME: Superhero, Romance


I’m definitely in superhero mode after finishing book one of this series; I loved jumping right into Ivory, which has a unique female warrior superhero that is very different from the rest of the supers. This novella actually takes place before the first book Temptress and even though it’s book two I would say read Ivory first, but you can read both as a stand-alone.

Ivory follows Valdis aka Ivory

Another stunner superhero romance novel from the amazing Lola Dodge. This novel is before Temptress but it makes no difference to the story line. Dodge starts the book off with a mammoth bang and I was done for. Valdis a.k.a Ivory is a flight attendant but she has the wicked power of ice. I was intrigued as to her "kind" because it's mentioned often but not really explained. Maybe it's those fancy ice giants, regardless, Valdis doesn't want to be a superh

Review: Manhattan Ten Series: Ivory by Lola Dodge All the problems I had with the first book in this series was solved in Ivory. That being said, I think the reason for this was the fact that book 2 takes place before book 1......weird, I know. However, when I read Ivory and Panther's story I was more satisfied with the information received and the bigger picture. That isn't to say the characters were lost here, because these two were on fire! These two were fierce, wild and straight up crazy at ...more

Ivory never wanted anyone to know she had a power. They call her an ice queen but they have no clue how true that really is. She is hiding from her family and doing what she has always dream and that is traveling. Working as a flight attendant she ends up having to use her powers on a crazy man. While her cover is blown she is saved by one of the Manhattan Ten Panther. Panther was on the plain to get some clues but got distracted by Ivory. He is impressed by her and takes her to the headquarters ...more

I enjoyed this story and the two main characters were perfect together. This story is set in Manhattan mainly surrounding the M-10’s headquarters. We also get to meet and see a little more of the heroes in the Manhattan 10.

Panther and Ivory’s characters really captured my attention. I enjoyed how they both recognized the hunter in both of them and how it set both of them on edge. Ivory’s character was a little different from most of the others because she was originally from a tribe that lived

Title: Ivory
Series: Manhattan Ten Book #2
Author: Lola Dodge
Rating: B+
Review: Ivory was a very intriguing novel with a strong lead female. Panther was immediately captivated by her, and it was easy to see why. The chemistry between them was potent, and it was entertaining how Panther tried to win her over. But it's not all fun and games - someone is killing the 'superheroes' of society....and unfortunately, it may rest closer to Ivory than she thinks.

Ivory, a flight attendant that loves to travel the world gets more than she bargained for on one flight with a broken AC. The book opens with Ivory doing her job, handing out drinks, and even going the extra mile by secretly using her power to lower the temperature. She has a unique super power that I personally haven't seen before in a book; she is able to control/create ice. Not everyone on the plane is thrilled about the cooler atmosphere though and events occur that cause the Manhattan 10, a ...more

I'm rounding up on this rating, because there's a lot of unanswered questions by the end of it, and most of it has to do with the lack of world building. First off, where does this book fit in the timeline? It doesn't seem like Tank has met Temptress yet, but nor was there any real mention of Ivory in Temptress' book. Also, who exactly are Ivory's people? Where does she come from? For that matter, where does Panther come from? I really would enjoy the series more if there was more info like that ...more

While the individual story of Ivory was good, the continuity of the Manhattan Ten was not.

If this is a direct sequel and Thinktank and Jenny are together it does not show, if it's a prequel you still can't tell.
