Holy smokes Ivy Vines Visions had me from the first pages. Ivy has powers, she can see the future. After a fatal accident that left her parentless at a birthday party Ivy has tried everything she could to be normal. Moving back from New York to her home town everything is going to Hell, quite literally.
Ivy is getting new powers every day and the elusive Eli has impregnated her to keep her from possession. Now they only have a little time left before the Devil finds her.
Ivy Vines Visions was awesome. Honestly. Ivy is sweet and very cute. She goes through a lot throughout this book but she’s always strong. She makes friends easily with other seers and is an all-around cool character.
Eli was a real dick. I honestly never liked him as much as Jake and while I got sorta that he liked Ivy it always just seemed forced. So yeah I was team Jake all the way.
My only problem was that none of the characters seemed to have any real depth. Everything was right at the surface. That and the scenes seemed to be really choppy where I didn’t know when one scene ended and another began. That was a tad irritating.
Thankfully despite the flaws they didn’t take away from the rest of the story so that was awesome. Ivy Vines Visions is action packed with forbidden love child spawn and dark evil creatures lurking behind every corner. I really enjoyed this book a lot!
If you can overlook that fact that Ivy is a horrible mother then you won't mind this book

This book was short and sweet but packed with MYSTERY. I enjoyed this book a lot and if you need an afternoon book this would be a great one to buy. I related to Ivy because she moved to start her life over just like I did several years ago. However, her plans of making it work with her High School sweetheart went south as soon as she walked into the Bistro for a job, where the dark mysterious man Eli Dubois, owner of a French bistro had his own plans for Ivy. Ivy has psychic abilities and everyone is hoping this will help solve some murders or it might just get her killed too! There is betrayal – no one should be trusted. I enjoyed this book a lot and highly recommend to readers who like paranormal romances.

I received a free copy of this novel in exchange for an honest review.
Ivy Vines was just your typical kid; at least she was until her thirteenth birthday. Her friend Gina brought over an Ouija board for their group of friends to play with. After their first experience, Gina reaches the revelation that Ivy has a sixth sense, and as they continue to play, all hell breaks loose…literally! Now, its several years later and Ivy is ready for a fresh. She moves to Sedona to live with her best friend Simone, and rekindle her romance with ex-boyfriend Michael. Unfortunately things aren’t what they seem, and Ivy’s sixth sense has been reawakened. Will she be able to survive this nightmare? Who is this old woman that keeps appearing to her?
What can I say about this book? I was completely engrossed from the very beginning. I loved the fact that this paranormal romance was unique in the storyline. There’s witches, demons, seers, shape shifters and of course the devil himself. The story flowed wonderfully, and I was at the edge of my seat wondering what would happen next. There’s lots of romance, including a love triangle. This was a great action packed novel, and I’m eagerly anticipating book two, I can’t wait to see what happens next!
