New Release+Review: The Evolution of Ivy: Antidote by Lauren Campbell

Title: The Evolution of Ivy: Antidote
Series: The Evolution of Ivy #2
Author: Lauren Campbell
Genre: Romantic Suspense
Release Date: September 22, 2017


It should have been easier.

I changed everything. Became the beauty I didn't think he'd resist. Lived the lie I thought he could love.

I sacrificed my soul to recover the years that she took from us. Yet, I'm still empty-handed.

But he's mine. I've earned him. It's time to collect my prize, and I'll be damned if I let anyone come between us this late in the game.

If only I'd known my greatest obstacle would be me.


I’ve been eagerly awaiting this conclusion and it was an enjoyable read! Ivy/Emily has been on a quest for revenge and I’ve been in her corner since day one. In this book we finally get Ivy and Brooks but things aren’t as easy as they seem. They face a lot of hurdles and at one point I wasn’t sure which route this book was headed. Brooks for the most part annoyed me with his wishy/washy behavior. I understand why he felt the way he did but at some point, you need to man up, face the consequences and move on. In this book we also see Ivy/Emily come to grips and terms with her past and I wanted to reach in the book and give her a big hug. Campbell’s writing was good in this book and the story held my interest. There were some minor issues I would have liked to see resolved but overall I was left satisfied after reading.  I look forward to reading more books from this author.

Lauren Campbell lives in Atlanta, GA, with her family, and is author of The Evolution of Ivy: Poison.

She was raised in Columbia, SC, with her three sisters who annoy her greatly.

Lauren's social life is pretty boring, but she loves reading, coffee & hot tea, and living in her pajamas. She's a glutton for punishment, and regrettably signs up for things like Room Mom in her children's classes, leaving her up all night doing things like baking dozens of cookies between swear words. Her favorite food is avocado. If she could, she'd find a way to put it on everything.
