This is the conclusion of one of my favorite New Adult stories began in The Ballerina & the Fighter The Ballerina & the Fighter (Ballerina, #1) by Ursula Sinclair . We find ourselves at the same place, right after Maze's epic blade fight. Ivy is overwhelmed by the brutality of her lover's world, but trying to stay as supportive as possible. She knows there is dangerous subtext to everything being presented, but Maze promises to shield her from the blow back. Is that even possible?

Pros:

1. My book friends already know how I fangirl over dance themes.

So I was one of the first to read this as I worked with the author on this project, and I must say I was in tears by the end. This is an excellent conclusion to Maze and Ivy's story. It's a story full of love, heartache, and what one must sacrifice not only for the love, but for the things one believes in. Fabulous job, Ms. Sinclair!

Maze- The Ballerina Series Book 2 would make a GREAT Lifetime movie (if they ever bothered to make interracial romances). There's passion, danger, deadly secrets, the sexy swoon-worthy hero, the too-beautiful for words heroine, and of course the Happily Ever After.

This wasn't a bad book overall. A couple of spelling hiccups but the action scenes were great and the revelation about a close member of Maze's family was heartbreaking. Yes, Maze gets major props for willing to do anything-including

Boy, this 2 book series has lots of twists and turns. You have this prima ballerina who falls for this hot MMA fighter. He firsts see his ballerina fly through the air and executes a beautiful "firebird." At that moment he is spellbound by her. Their journey to be together is full of love, sacrifice, lies, suspense, betrayal, and honor. This series would make an excellent "Lifetime" love and suspense movie of the week. Overall recommend read.

5 Stars.... Great Sequel

Wow, LOVED this and LOVED both Maze and Ivy:) What a great sequel, a happy and truly heartwarming end for this couple. Oh and the Epilogue....LOVED it!!!!! They both deserved all of the good that finally came their way!

PS LOVED Dante, Ivy's Best Friend, he was a GREAT addition to this story!

This was a fine conclusion story of Ivy and Maze. In the prequel, we knew how Ivy and Maze build their chemistry and how they rekindle the relationship. But in this sequel, we'd know not just the sweetness of their relationship, but the bitter and sadness in it. I liked their effort to have people they loved safe, I liked the maturity develops in both Ivy and Maze, and I liked the twist. I somehow knew there would be betrayal, and damn it's right. Overall, I really enjoyed Ivy and Maze!

Loved it. What a great conclusion to the story. I wasn't sure about Maze in the first book but he won me over in this book. He loved Ivy so much he was willing to put her in he arms of another man just to keep her save. I loved the twist at the end. I was not expecting that.

Nice... really nice.

This one carries the story in a nice direction and contains a slick plot twist that will throw you for a loop. There's a couple of glaring plot holes that took away a star for me. But all in all, a rollicking good story.

This story concludes the story of Ivy and Maze. The dancer and the fighter.
There is a lot that happens in this story. Maze finds out some things about his family that he was originally told that were not true. So there is drama with that. There is drama about him leaving the ring from fighting. There are breakups and makeups. I love you I hate yous. It is all over the place. I really enjoyed it. I thought it concluded well. By the end of the story I was really happy for them. I enjoyed their st

Received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

I began reading this book and then I found out it was book two in a series so I decided to stop reading and read book one first. While you could read this book without reading book one, I suggest reading The Fighter and The Ballerina first in order to have a better understanding of the dynamics of the relationship between Maze and Ivy. Once I finished book one, I immediately restarted book two.

I was scared that Bk 2 would not live up to BK1, but Ms. Ursula Sinclair did not fail me. BK 2 was amazing. I loved that it picked up from where bk 1 left off. Maze and Ivy were so sweet and hot. I felt their love and Maze's protectiveness through the authors words; it fel

*I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review from the New Adult Book Club*

The second book in the Ballerina series picks up where the first has left off. Ivy desperately wants Maze out of whatever business he's in. Maze wants out of it too, but it keeps shadowing him. The Triad hits closer and closer to home, and the source of all their troubles may be right in their faces. All Maze wants to do is love and protect his Ivy, but that gets harder to do as the Triad threatens ever

All hell breaks loose after Maze refuses to throw a fight for the Triad. He's being followed, Joe gets shot, and Ivy's life is threatened. Thinking that the best way to protect Ivy is to stay away from her, he breaks up with her for good. But he quickly realizes he made a huge mistake when Ivy turns up missing, and Maze comes to the realization that the threat he faces stems from close to home.

As you can guess from the title, this book is all about Maze. Even after Ivy suffers a career ending in

I loved this book more than the previous one, there was more fighting for each other, and this book was a bit more dark than the first one!


Storyline
I won’t spoil the second book, because you only start to read this one because you loved the first one! But there are secrets, and there are things to happen that you won’t expect, he will sacrifice a lot for her, will she do the same. Will things be allright in the ending? A lot of question, and all the answers are in the book. You will love them!

So I read the first book, and it was difficult for me to get into the story and Maze (even though I liked both things) because the writing was repetitive and at times clunky. Clearly, Sinclair took the criticism and feedback and produced a solid work of immense improvement!

With that said, I really did like the writing this time around and the story kept me engaged. Admittedly, the story was predictable and the direction was obvious, I enjoyed the twinges of suspense and action in the s

I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

This is not a standalone book. In order to understand Ivy and Maze you need to read the first book. I did not care for the first book, but I did like this one better.

I thought that the plot was paced well and progressed naturally throughout the book. I liked the twist that was thrown in toward the end and thought that I should have figured it out before it came because there are hints along the way, but it still came as a surprise.

What an amazing ending to a 2 book series arc. The unconditional love between Maze and Ivy just so amazing.

The twists and turns, the joys and sadness, the love and betrayal was all in this story. I was gripping my Kindle like crazy lol!!!

I love they way Maze fought for Ivy, I love the way that Ivy was the only one for him and there would never be another. When he said to her, "Even In My Death I Will Love You!" Let's you know right then and there that nothing could ever separate these two.

I really enjoyed this dangerous and intense love story. Maze was a total badass. Loved it. And the way Ivy stood by him made me love them even more. I enjoy reading love stories where the heroine meets a 'bad boy' and doesn't try to drastically change him.

An excellent finish for this series.
The passion and love between Maze and Ivy is still sexy but they are both strong willed individuals so there are still many clashes ahead.
We learn so much more about Maze's dark past and current ties that all leads to deadly trouble and heartbreak.
I loved Ivy's strong character as she deals with Maze's past and present. She really helps him overcome his hurdles to make their future. And poor Maze has a lot to deal with as he makes sure Ivy is safe even if it m

I got a few chapters into this book before I realised it was clearly book two in the series. So I stopped and read the ballerina and the fighter and then carried on where I left off.
I really enjoyed the relationship between the two main characters, which was genuine and believable.
I thought the storyline was unique and kept my interest up throughout. The found the coverage of Ivy's dancing situation to be thoughtful.
Overall a good read and I will be looking out for more writing from Ursula Si

I didn't really like the first book so I don't really know why I picked up this one. It definitely shouldn't be read as a stand alone because the basis of the mcs relationship is made in book One when they meet. Here it goes on to describe how they live together with the threat of the Asian mafia over their heads. Honestly I just wasn't into this story. It didn't keep my interest and I found Ivy really annoying. Her character was whiny and passive. I like a stronger female lead.

I didn't realise until i began it, it was the second in a series, this aside however I quickly picked up the thread of the story and the history between Maze and Ivy. I probably didn't quite establish the rapport with the characters i would have if i had read the first book and found at times I was losing interest.

This love story could be epic, spanning years of these characters' lives, if only there was even more depth. As is, it's a beautiful story though with interesting characters that a compelling story line. There's love, loss, heartbreak, illness, suspense, betrayal and redemption. Those are some powerful elements. READ FULL REVIEW: http://guiltyindulgencebookclub.blogs...
