He's a surgeon, he's a cage fighter, he's not a good boy. I feel as if I know him, yet I'm sure I don't. Dr. Jacade J. Jordan, my mystifying sex god on a stick.

Damn, she's delectable. My sweet Ivy. I want to eat her alive. But how can I possess her when she doesn't even know me? When the deception runs too deep? When I've killed for her and would do it again in a heartbeat

Great start, charming main character, awesome first few scenes and then... What happened to this book? Really? I'm all for suspenseful and intriguing plot-lines with shady characters and smut and believe me this book has it all in abundance, but sadly something went terribly wrong in there.


First of all let's get a grip on what the story is about. Our heroine is Ivy, a young, vibrant woman who after a problematic past conquers all and restarts her life and Jacade who is a hot surgeon by

Ok. I. Am. Impressed.

During the first 25% of the story, I wanted to quit reading. I mean this story was said to be Mafia related but it seemed to be about a very horny, desperate, woman (Ivy) with serious self-esteem issues. You know that saying...."Never judge a book by its cover"? Don't. Do. It. M.K. will have your mind so messed up you're thinking Ivy is this or that and then you discover this chick not only own Jacade but own the story as well!

Ivy Summers is returning to work and after a heated encounter she finds herself being caught in an erotic moment. Dr. Jacade Jordan has no problem with catching Ivy, it only solidifies his every thought about the stunning woman. Ivy is everything he could desire in a woman, but not everything is as smooth for the newly formed relationship between the two, secrets are about to be revealed.

Had one of the most erotic moments I have read in a book. While I am not a big fan of novellas, I was pleasan

Revival is my first book by M.K. Gilher. Wow, what debut for me. At first, I was told it was a mafia book and at the first 25% of the book, I was a bit disappointed because I was expecting a mafia book and not a woman with self esteem issues talking throughout. I decided to keep reading and I told myself that maybe it will get better. Boy, did it deliver. I was surprised at how I got into the book and I was just mesmerised by the story of the book. The story started to click.

Holy Hell, this was a hot book. Dr. Jacade Jordan is pure sex on a stick, but boy does he have a lot of secrets! Ivy returns to work after taking a few months off to wallow after a break-up, but after her elevator encounter I think it's safe to say her wallowing days are over. Ivy and Jacade have a mysterious past that she isn't aware of or just doesn't remember, and while we get snippets of their past we don't have the full story yet, it will be reveled in the next two books Rectify & Remed ...more

Wow! I definitely enjoyed reading Revival. This book is filled with a possessive dirty mouthed, Dr. Jacade J Jordan and Ivy is the woman he craves. He cannot stand her being in harm's way, yet he has to hide the truth from her. He has killed for her, saved her, yet the truth is dangerous.

There were a couple of scenes which were hot like the elevator, and the shower. I love how the story has been penned down. There was only one aspect that didn't settle with me: The inner voices. It kind of obstr

I really enjoyed the book and characters. Jacade is any woman's dream. Ivy is sassy and beautiful. There is an undercurrent of violence that I was not expecting but it fits the storyline.
The only reason I did not give 5 stars was due to numerous grammatical errors. They could easily be corrected to make the story flow better for the reader.
This is the first book of a series and I look forward to the next book. There is a lot of humor in the dialog from Ivy that will make you smile and even giggl

I was given a copy of this book by the author in exchange for an honest review. I had no clue what I was getting into when I began reading but by the end I was addicted to this story. I will warn you that it does leave you in a pretty intense cliff hanger, one that made me want to scream and beg for this not to end here. The writing style is smooth and descriptive, with great character development, making the reader feel they are right there in the story experiencing every emotion that flows thr ...more

I love this book! I am dying to know what happened! ...

Based in Chicago, this book is about a used to be hoodlum, now a plastic surgeon (Jacade) and a woman he has wanted for years (Ivy) and now only gets a chance to get together with. Something in Ivy's medical past has her memory not telling her everything. Did I mention Jacade has a body all women want and all men want to be?

This book is HOT and sexy, yet a suspense thriller too! Revival also has a comical side. I love the quirky little bites

I loved this book. Did not want to put it down. Ivy has had a hard life and it just keeps getting harder, Jacade is a plastic surgeon who has secrets he does not want Ivy to know. This is part 1 of the trilogy and ends with a cliff-hanger. I can't wait for the next book to come out. This is a story worth waiting for. I got so lost in the story that when I got to the end I just sat there.... Like a really good movie you don't to get up yet. I recommend this story to all readers who love an edgy s ...more

This was an amazing beginning to a trilogy that is sure to entice you back for more.

The character of Jacade is a dark, mysterious and so very alpha. As we progress in the story we learn there is a whole other Jacade. The secrets he hides are slowly being revealed. You will question what it is about the herione that has him obsessed over her.

Ivy's character is a woman I think most of could relate to. Strong yet vulnerable,, sassy yet. Compassionate. She is amazed at the way she reacts over an en

This is the first book of Ivy and Jacade's story. Ivy meets Jacade when she returns to her work after her leave of absence because of a bad breakup. Jacade is the other plastic surgeon in her uncle's practice. Sparks fly everywhere with these two, they definitely have hot chemistry and are drawn to each other.

Ivy Summers is returning to work, as the office manager in her uncle's plastic surgery office. Cue the hot new doctor, Jacade Jordan. Stunningly red hot sexcapades ensue, mixed with high drama, thrilling suspense, and possibly syndicated crime? This is book one of a trilogy, and ends with a bang! The question is...who got shot? Well-written, and unputdownable!

I loved this book. The novel if filled with romance, mystery, sex, and suspense. Revival is a beautiful love story in the making. Ivy Summers is returning to work, as the office manager in her uncle's plastic surgery office after a leave of absence. Her sense of humor is hilarious that you laugh out loud. Dr. Jacade Jordan is a sexy Dom, who has loved Ivy for years. But he has secrets he doesn't want Ivy to know. I can't wait for the next book!

Sheesh!

I got a copy free for a review!

First off I like how it's from both points of view.

Good strong characters although it wouldn't have hurt Ivy to be just a tad stronger around Jacade at times. But then again would I be able to? Probs not!

Can't wait to get into the next book it's just so far away and then we'll all have another wait for the last book! I'm pretty sure I want to make a law against this......patience is not a strong suit of mine!

I will definitely read more by M. K.

This story captivated and held my attention from beginning to end. This story was intriguing; action packed, seriously sexy, and left me an emotional mess.


I came across this book in a group and would see these really sexy and erotic teasers. There was one teaser that stood out to me about the sex on a stick hero, Dr. Jacade where he’s the doctor, but she heals him. I remember thinking this book is going to be fun; it’s going to have a hero, a Dr., and an alpha that has a sensitive soul. I expec
