Ever wonder what Levi was thinking in FLIGHT? Find out in the two Levi POV novellas FIRST & FOREVER. This combined edition includes both FIRST (previously released) and FOREVER, a brand new novella.This edition also includes the bonus short story: The Royal Wedding.

FIRST
Levi's got it all. He's a paranormal prince with more money and power than he knows what to do with, but something is missing—a mate. He only has until college graduation to find her. Allie's perfect but she wants nothing to do with him. When attraction becomes something more, will he take a chance and show her who he really is or will he lose everything?

FOREVER
Levi's almost out of time. Allie's the one, he knows it in every grain of his being, but how can he make her see it? Desperate to keep Allie safe and at his side, he takes the biggest risk of his life. Reckless or not there is nothing he wouldn't do to keep her with him... forever.

I received this book for free from The Author in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.

One Line: It was nice revisiting this world and seeing these two fall in love through Levi’s eyes.

In My Opinion: Worth a try!

First and Forever is a compilation of two novellas in one. Both are from Levi’s perspective but in First, you get to see how they first met through his eyes and in Forever, you get to see why them actively fall in love. With both of them you really have to have read the series (at least the first book) to get the complete picture. This isn’t like the first book told from his POV, it’s just pivotal moments from his POV to help you get a better idea of his mindset.

One thing I have to mention is that even when I read this story from Allie’s perspective, it was obvious how intense and quick Levi was regarding their relationship. Well, it’s even more intense and quick through his eyes, even though you can get a sense as to why he does everything he does and just how much he cares for Allie and why. While the way they fell in love and how things progressed is in no way, perfect, it was still nice to revisit their romance and even though Levi can be arrogant and cocky at times, it’s hard not to like the guy.

Overall, I really liked each novella and would’ve loved more. I liked seeing the things that Allie missed, like whatever went on between Levi and his friends or his family. And just being in Levi’s head was cool. Any fans of the series will enjoy these little tidbits very much. I flew through this pretty quickly, as I tend to do with any of Ivy’s books, and I really enjoyed it. Oh, and the royal wedding scene was icing on the cake! I loved it!
