Book: The Revolution of Ivy (The Book of Ivy #2)
Author: Amy Engel
Release Date: 11/03/15

Publisher: Entangled Teen

Summary: Ivy Westfall is beyond the fence and she is alone. Abandoned by her family and separated from Bishop Lattimer, Ivy must find a way to survive on her own in a land filled with countless dangers, both human and natural. She has traded a more civilized type of cruelty--forced marriages and murder plots--for the bare-knuckled brutality required to survive outside Westfall's borders. 
But there is hope beyond the fence, as well. And when Bishop reappears in Ivy's life, she must decide if returning to Westfall to take a final stand for what she believes is right is worth losing everything she's fought for.

Top Five Reasons that Bishop is Swoon-worthy 
Ah, Bishop...that guy gets me every time. I definitely have a serious soft spot for him and hopefully readers do, too. I could probably wax poetic about him all day, but I’ll limit myself to the top five reasons he’s swoon-worthy.
1) He doesn’t try to change Ivy: That’s not to say that Bishop doesn’t want Ivy to think for herself rather than believing in her father blindly. But Bishop doesn’t mind Ivy’s impulsiveness or her sometimes prickly personality. He’s patient enough to wait her out and smart enough to know that Ivy needs to trust him completely before she can love him.
2) He’s patient, but he’s not a pushover: Bishop is willing to give Ivy the time she needs, over and over again, but there is always a point at which he is going to take a stand. And once he does, he’s not going to budge.
3) Bishop’s love is steady: It doesn’t waver when things get tough or when it might be easier to give up. Bishop isn’t the kind of guy who is going to sing love songs to Ivy or run around telling the whole word that he adores her, but he shows his feelings in the way he treats her and the way he believes in her.
4) Bishop is a genuinely good person: He sometimes makes tough choices, but always for the right reason. He’s very self-aware and constantly thinks about the consequences of what he does, both for himself and for others. He would do anything for the people he loves.
5) Bishop balances knowing he's attractive without preening: You may think I’m nuts, but for me, Bishop’s looks may actually be the least swoon-worthy thing about him. It’s more his reaction to his own looks that’s swoon-worthy. He’s incredibly good looking, but his handsomeness doesn’t mean much to him. He’s not unaware of his appeal, however; he knows what people see when they look at him. But he never pays attention to his own handsomeness or tries to use it to get what he wants. There’s something incredibly compelling about someone who lives comfortably in their own gorgeous skin without ever preening or, on the other extreme, down-playing. Bishop’s response to his looks is a metaphorical shrug, and that makes him even hotter.
