I was given an ARC of “Lion's Vineyard” by Alexandra Iff in exchange for an honest review. I have read all of her books and this one is by far different from the rest, but it’s as good as the others, maybe even better.

I loved this read and to be honest I’ve read it a few times over just because I fell in love with the story between Evie Frankel and Connor Martins.
Alexandra has managed to bring these characters to life for me. I experienced every emotion possible. I laughed, cried I even got pis

Lion's Vineyard was an amazing read and one I could not put down. Alexandra Iff pulls you in and you can feel everything the characters are going through. Connor is a very, strong, brooding character who has truly been tormented by his past and is just muddling through life until he gets a phone call concerning his ailing grandfather. In coming home to help his grandfather and save the family home he runs into Evie Frankel whose past intertwine with his. Evie is tormented by trying to make her f ...more

I really enjoyed reading this book. The way that it was laid out was interesting to me. I loved how it went back and forth from Evie to Connor, but also added Jack's pov in a couple of times. Plus you got an idea of what happened in the past, but don't get the full story really until the end. The ending killed me though cause it just leaves you wanting more. I can't wait to see what happens in the continuation! ...more

I am having a very hard time with putting in to words the effect that this book had on me. I have read all of Alexandra Iff's books and have loved them all but this book is so different from her others. As always the writing was excellent and had a good flow for easy reading, no choppiness. The characters are deep emotionally, each fighting their own type of hell. Conner has spent some time in juvenile detention for a crime. He left his family and his home when he left incarceration. Evie is liv ...more

I received a copy from the author in exchange for an honest review.

This was my first book by Alexandra Iff & it won't be my last!
I was drawn in from the beginning by all the secrets that this small town has & couldn't help but want to find out how & when these secrets were going to be revealed.
Connor has returned to Lion's Vineyard to visit his Grandfather that he hasn't seen or spoken to in years. He holds onto a lot of anger & guilt because of what happened all those years ago & returning home

Warning possible triggers: domestic violence, mention of rape, violence.
I liked the story of Conner and Evie. It's almost a forbidden love. Or at Evie thinks so. They have always known each other but a misunderstood event takes Conner away for eight years. When he finally returns little Evie is all grown up and catches his eye. She knows she is not supposed to go near him but he heart tells here differently.
This novel does end on a bit of a cliffhanger but it's not to severe. Mrs Iff has created

Lion's Vineyard is a story of loss and finding yourself again. Evie is our heroine as we follow her through her journey and to find out what really happens with her sister Maria. Then we have our hero Connor who seems to be damaged goods. There's a lot more to him than meets the eye.

When I read this, I laughed and cried in so many different parts. Evie really drew me into her world from her POV and Connor also did the same. I couldn't put this down and finished it in a matter of hours. If you l

I've read all of Alexandra's book and this one is different from the others. It has everything you would want in s book from heartache to love to mystery. The sex scenes were off the charts. I feel in love with Connor and Evie from the beginning. I laughed and cried through out the whole book I couldn't put it down. This is a must read and I hope Alexander will continue with this story. ...more

This book was absolutely fantastic! I wasn't expecting such a deep sweet roamance story. This book had something for everyone to love humor, hot sex, plenty of action along with a full range of emotions. I was immediately drawn to the characters and that made the story flow effortlessly.

Evelyn Frankel is such a sweet well mannered girl a bit sheltered but coming from a small town that's to be expected. He family is a bit on the difficult side her mother Gladys is power hungry and really is the o

I am fairly new to this author but am so glad I stumbled upon her in the vast world of Facebook and was able to read her work for an honest review and let me tell you this book is amazing and Connor is a great character and was developed really well as were all the other characters in this book. What it must have been like to return to a place you turned your back on 8 years before when the before wasn't all rainbows and unicorns to begin with but he has to help his grandfather keep his land fro ...more

LION's VINEYARD is the second book I have read by the author and it certainly won't be the last. I was taken with this book from page 1 and found it very hard to put down. I read 70% in practically one sitting and only stopped as I needed to sleep.
Eight years ago Connor was accused of a barbaric crime. It tore his family apart and he left town. When his grandfather becomes ill and the family property is under threat,Connor returns to town. His grandfather Chad welcomes him with open arms but o

NOOOO! I cannot believe the story ended that way. I want more!!

The reader is swept up in the world of Evie and Connor. You know there is something funny going on, but the twists and turns throughout keep you guessing. Then suddenly you get a glimpse of what could have happened to set the chain of events rolling. So much abuse going on and no one says anything! How can parents allow this to go on! God help us from parents who don't teach their children to stand up for themselves and to understand

This story is so different than any of the other I have read from Alexandra Iff.
Conner and Evie have a lot of past and presents dragons to slay to say the least.
The chemistry and connection that they have are beyond what either of them can begin to try to understand.
Evie has led a sheltered life and she always does as she is told and is always stuck in her sisters shadow.
Conner is trying to escape a past that destroyed his future and traumatic events brings him back home to face t

My favorite book from Ms. Alexandra Iff yet

I LOVED this new book of Ms. Alexandra Iff. It is my favorite book of her yet. The story is so good. It is slow at first but it's getting intense as you read along. The story is so emotional. It is way better from her past writings.

There is vengeance, betrayal but above all forgiveness. You will LOVE her new characters especially the guy. This is a very unique story which is beautiful. You will get mad from other characters except the two main character

Her writing takes you into all kinds of journeys.
This book was off the charts!!! The two main characters Evie and Connor, their back stories are amazing. Alexandra brought these two characters to life and I was having so much fun with these two characters POV. WOW!!!! This book had everything in it. I

Alexandra has written another great story. Conner left home 8 years ago only to come back for his grandpa when he hears he is not doing well. Conner runs into Evie who has grown up with a controlling mother that has been hiding secrets the past 8 years on what truely happened to her daughter Maria 8 years ago. Lots of lies, misunderstandings finally are revealed by the end of this book. I can not wait for the next book yo come out. Well done Alexandra!!

Another great story from this author. Connor is living with issues from the past, and is determined not to feel. Evie is under the control of her mother, and letting past events influence her. But when Evie and Connor meet again, what will happen?
The beginning of the book had me intrigued and sucked me in. I enjoyed the storyline. Written mainly from Evie and Connor's POV, you get to feel their confusion and feelings.

All I can say is WOW, what a story, I loved it. I immediately fell in love with Connor and Evie but I especially loved Jack, Connor's employee. What a character Evie's mother was. I had goosebumps reading the ending. I am looking forward for their story to continue.
