I wasn't sure hat to think of this book just by reading the synopsis. It was different than I expected it would be. I enjoyed the story line and the authors way of writing. One of the characters annoyed me a little bit (I'll keep the name to myself as not to ruin it for anyone else). She seemed a little childish, but it didn't ruin the book for me. This is the second book of Ivy's I've read, I really enjoy her books.

Wow! I loved this book!! Where do I even begin? A story of two friends Liz and Isabelle (Izzy),
Izzy married and in an increasingly abusive relationship and Liz just getting her feet wet and beginning a relationship with Ryker who is a Dom at a very private BDSM club. Liz is nervous about her first night to experience Ryker as his sub, so begs Izzy to come along. She knows doing so will likely mean she'll pay in one form or another upon her return home, but she goes. The bond between she and Liz

I received this book in exchange for an honest review.
It's a very interesting story.
While Liz struggle with the demons of her past, she can count on Ryker to help her to know herself better.
And Isabella struggle to survive an abusive relationship, and luckily, can count on the care and concern of Anthony and Matt.
But when things look good for them all, the past has a way to go back and terrorize everyone.
I hope there is another book to tell more about these characters.

I have been stuck on a book series for years now. Nothing has pulled me away until this. I literally could not get enough. My emotions were all over the place. The writing is exceptional and truly makes you understand each character since it is written from each of their PoV's. I need more. So much more! I really feel that each character has something unique they are bringing to the table, however, I need to know more about them.

I'm not quite sure how to classify this book, maybe "kinda dark, kinda mild BDSM, kinda mob-ish"? This is the second book I've read by Ivy Love, and it's not as dark as "Cutting Through the Darkness" but I've noticed that Ivy Love has a signature style. She likes to have several different POVs, and a secondary storyline, and it seems like she has a hard time deciding which story she wants to be her focus. It's a little different, and I think I kind of like it. I've skimmed the other reviews for ...more

Lost in Me, Found in You is about two best friends who each have struggles in their lives and how these struggles impact their lives as a whole. This is my second book by Ivy Love and it explores the dynamics of friendship. To me, this book was captivating and loved the plot of the story. I was truly intrigued by the story.

Isabelle has been married for 8 years and her husband has been abusive both physically and mentally. Her best friend Liz speculates that Izzy is not alright so she asks her t

Wow Wow Wow!! This was an incredible story. It was an exciting and emotional rollercoaster ride. It was a page turner from the very first page. Best friends Liz and Izzy have been through so much and while at a private resort Liz's comes back to haunt her and ending the lives of several people. Izzy is now determined to do whatever necessary to bring her friend back.

Heres The deal I liked the book but Realistically I dont know what woman no matter if shes in a Good or Bad relationship would tell there husband there going to a bdsm club for a friend. Second Izzy and Liz I swear I kept mixing them up dam names to similar. Also Not alot of Sex scence you would think there would be. These Doms are kinda Lame to me. Now Liz and her husband are in a bad place you dont know why he is that way but apparently hes be abusive both physically and mentally. She goes to ...more

Isabella is in a bad place in her marriage to Jared. She keeps hoping things will improve but it is clear that his violence toward her and his drinking is not ending any time soon. As a favor to her best friends Liz she heads out with her to a BDSM club that Liz is a member of so that Liz can get Isabella's approval on her new DOM.

Yet it is clear that something is bothering Isabella and instantly Matt and Anthony want to protect her. But Isabella is devoted to her husband, no matter the cost.

I'm going 3.5 action packed stars.

This book is filled with action packed and intense scenes. Just when you think you know it's direction, it shoots into another direction.

There are basically 2 interwoven story lines simultaneously occurring. Izzy is in an abusive relationship and on the same night their marriage comes to a painful end, Izzy meets 2 men that are insta-loving her at the BDSM club.

Liz is Izzy's best friend and the one responsible for taking Izzy to the club. Liz has met the Dom, Ry

BDSM with a twist of action, suspense, heartache and oh so much more.
Ivy Love has certainly delivered with this book.
Izzy's marital issues along with her intense reactions to Morgan, Anthony & Matt at the club will surely make for an interesting read in the next book. Liz & Ryker's chemistry is smokin'! I can't wait for the next book in this series. Lust, intensity, erotic, edge-of-your-seat smoldering story!!

I can't wait to see where she will take us on the next release (pun intended)

Izzy and Liz, complicated souls with complicated lives, throw in a bunch of hot Doms, a raving Lunatic father, an abusive husband and you know Ivy has penned another winning book.

The story was fast paced, action packed, hot hot hot and the cliff hanger left me wanting more......SOON!

There was so much going on that I didn't want to put it down, but had to so I could take a breath!!

This book is wonderful, not for the faint of heart though. It deals with some serious issues. Abuse is something many people don't talk about. In this book we meet Izzy who is strong enough to know that she needs to get out, but unfortunately doesn't get out soon enough. Liz is running from things of her past, thinking if she gets close to anyone they will get hurt. Ryker, Anthony and Matt are true alpha males who love to be Dominates, but also understand the time and place for this. They truly ...more

Wow! This story is an emotional rollercoaster ride. I love this story even though it broke my heart. I fell in love with the characters as it made me become really involved and emotionally connected. I love Ryker, Anthony and Matt, who are hot and sexy and love to dominate Liz and Izzy but understand the time and place for this. They all truly care for Liz and Izzy in their lives. I would recommend this book and can not wait for the next one.

I throughly enjoyed this book. Very excited for the next one. This is a simple/easy one to read. Doesn't take to long and is completely worth your time. About two woman best friends trying to find their way to love and happiness. I don't think I get like there was every really a dull moment. Yet it was not to action packed or to fast paced.
I would recommend this to other friends. Can't wait for the next one.

Ivy Love has delivered yet another heart touching read. Lost In Me, Found In You was emotionally raw, super hot, and absolutely worth the read. From the very first page, you get lost in this. You feel all the feels. And hell, you may even ugly cry. I know did. Because Izzy's story will open you up and leave you wanting more. I loved everything about this book. Especially how it was so easy to get lost into. The story flows well and the characters will snuggle up to the warmest part of our heart.
