Description

The only thing harder than saving the world is doing it alone.

Holly Lovelace is a multimillionaire tech genius and the CEO of her own company. But if she can’t come up with a brilliant innovation and convince her investors that she’s back in tip-top shape by the end of the year, Holly could lose everything she’s worked so hard to build.

Ivy Winters is a social worker on an island that’s a vacation paradise during the summer months but suffers from a lack of economic opportunity and the scourge of addiction the rest of the year. When the promise of a huge grant falls through, Ivy loses hope of helping her community.

When Holly and Ivy meet, sparks fly, but it’s hardly smooth sailing. After their one-night stand ends in disaster, both decide they’d rather spend the cold months ahead sleeping alone. However, it soon becomes undeniable that each woman possesses something the other needs. Working together, they just might get what they want and find the love of a lifetime along the way, but only if their own insecurities and secrets don’t destroy them first.

Best-selling lesbian romance authors T.B. Markinson and Miranda MacLeod bring lesfic fans a holiday romance that’ll warm your heart this festive season!

Top 5

I absolutely loved this story. The characters were so well developed and loveable. Alongside the humour that was dispersed throughout the story, it had me laughing so much and I could listen to this again. The narration was perfect and this book is definitely in my top 5 favourites.

Beauty and the Geek

Love this story with each chapter switching to the opposite main character. This is a story of redemption for Holly along with a chance of lasting love for Ivy.
The narrator is perfect for the shyness and introspection of both main characters.
I have read the book several times and was thrilled when it finally came out on Audible.

A great read

This is the second book in few weeks about a small island of Maine and I loved it. Instead of lots of drama you meet well written characters and with a great narration this was a pleasure

It's not you, it's me...

Full disclosure: I received a copy of Holly & Ivy from a giveaway organised by the authors.

Holly & Ivy is an enjoyable romance between a burned out millionaire genius and a small town social worker.
I liked the humour, loved the side character of Morgan, and would gladly pay for more scenes with Blue Bell the yogi goat.
Murphy's narration was as good as usual, and suited the story well.
Despite all this, my rating is a bit low this time due to a couple of issues I have with the story.

The first one is a matter of personal preference, related to how the sexual attraction between the two leads develops throughout the story. I am not a huge fan of the approach the authors chose, and struggled to feel a connection between the sex scenes and the characters' arcs.
Again, this is extremely personal and I'm sure other listeners will appreciate the authors' choice.

The second is related to Holly's decision to use personal data collected by her company for her own purpose.
Data privacy is a huge issue for anyone in Holly's position, and I find it hard to like a character who resorts to this kind of unprofessional, unethical conduct on a whim. I suppose this is also something listeners might overlook, depending on their level of awareness on the matter.

Overall, Holly & Ivy is a good listen and an audiobook many listeners will love.

Good but a little slow

I really liked this book, but sometimes it felt a little slow moving. I loved the relationship between the characters though and would recommend it.

What a great combination of two outstanding authors!

This book turned out to be such a great story and I had fun listening to it. I thought each of the main characters were well written and the secondary characters were funny to boot. It was a cute romance with a little angst and a lot of Love... As for the narrator Stephanie Murphy, you just can’t go wrong. She does a wonderful job with each of the characters that it’s easy to just get lost into the story... Definitely would recommend, Well done! 5⭐️

Great book

I love the opposites attract feel of this novel. I have one complaint... sometimes it was hard to tell which perspective I was listening from. The narrator does an amazing job telling the story, so I think it has to do with the writing. I love that this book makes me laugh. These two characters are so cute together.
