PDF Ivan vs. Ivan I can honestly say that I thoroughly enjoyed this book. So many books that are written today are done so from the perspective of the 20ish-30ish year old characters. In Ivan vs Ivan we are treated to men of a slightly more mature set. Both men are in their 40's, working in a very homophobic industry, but still recognize the connection between themselves. I loved how the two men worked together to overcome this, to come together in times of strife, discrimination, loss and still find a way to form a relationship. Ivan Voloshyn is Captain of a Deep Sea Oil rig, he’s Out, but doesn’t advertise it, but isn’t ashamed of it either. Ivan Blažević, Captain of Transport ship is trapped in a Russian controlled world of Discrimination and constant threat of physical injury, loss of employment, and let’s face it even death if people find out he’s Gay. But when these two hot men come together, it is magical. The physical attraction is so lifelike that you feel as if you're sitting in the room, ally or store room with them. But one of the things I like about this series is the fact that it’s not just Sex. It actually tells a story of two people coming together, facing fears and obstacles together and coming together But more than that, the description of the Nordic and Russian life, the cultures and the current attitudes were spot on. The brief description of the Religious practices of the men and women who work in some of the most dangerous waters in the world, added a very rich layer to this wonderful book. I've been a fan of Princess since her first book of the Teddy-Bear series because it deals with men who are older. Older does not mean dead. Believe me, us older guys can be pretty sexy, so if you're looking for for a great read with an older, more mature men then you really need to read this book. .

The best Kindle Ivan vs. Ivan *ARC copy provided by author for honest review. Also pre-ordered on Amazon.com*Right out of the gate this book bucks overdone trends in current romance, and still delivers an engrossing journey that is also sometimes infuriating, frequently suspenseful and ultimately happy, if bittersweet.Most notably to those of us readers closer to the wrong side of the grass than not, both Ivans are men with some years to call past. The point is in no way belaboured, instead it merely adds welcome layers of experience to their overall character; a comfort within themselves that comes with time. It also, blessedly, uncomplicates most personal aspects of their relationship, apart from Ivan B's necessarily closeted status on his Russian-owned ship. Reference "infuriating" above...Also of refreshing note is the setting in which this story unfolds. Both men captain sea-faring vessels; Ivan V. a massive oil-rig, and Ivan B. a massive cargo ship designed to carry the likes of oil rigs as its freight. In addition, Ivan V. makes his off-season home in Iceland. Readers are given glimpses of a life very different, customs that inspire, and are allowed into "V's" spiritual centre; a place that comes to be very important as the story progresses. As the climactic event in this story approaches, it is so far beyond the usual crazy-stalker-ex, or kidnap scenario, or deep-dark-secret-that-is-neither-deep-nor-dark, that the reader is easily swept up in the unimaginable but frighteningly possible circumstances. And then...its still not over. Having gone where few authors dare to go with some of the secondary but key characters, there are still two emotionally wounded men to heal, and a fractured relationship to be healed, if possible. It is at this point where I usually want more than a very nicely concluded story. I could read on and on, but this author has a gift for understanding when more is just...more.This story has a recognizable appeal to a comprehensive reading audience, and at the same time is pleasingly different in presentation. It is a smart tale about real working men of some age, and about overcoming, with nary a 22 year-old billionaire in sight...

  4. I do love a story that not only takes you for a great ride but also makes you think Princess S.O has given us two rugged bears in a challenging profession both physically and mentally The oil industry it seems is ever growing and moving forward in technology and equipment but still a bit in the past as attitudes go about personal relationships Slowly the world is learning to accept couples of the same sex but not in this environment It is the don t ask, don t tell and definitely don t show kind [...]

It is, in fact, a must read for guys.The title I chose for my review is not to say women can t read or won t enjoy it, but I put it this way so that any of you guys out there who think you can t get what you want out of a book because a cg woman wrote it or because of the author s real name, you re missing out My title also crops up from an encounter I had while reading it on the plane home.I had a long flight ahead of me with two lay overs, While there are some books I like better than others, [...]

  11. It s taken a lot longer than I thought it would to write this review I loved Ivan vs Ivan so much that the words simply weren t there to do it justice I kept coming back to it, rolling everything around in my head, until suddenly everything clicked into place Ivan vs Ivan is deeply character driven the men are MEN Mature and self aware, they ve been disappointed by life but have also experienced moments of joy It s the warmth of those memories that keep them going.The attraction they have for ea [...]


  12. This was my first romance set on an oil rig Intriguing premise, to be sure And to top that off this one was smoking hot Two inked, bearded, muscle bound bears clashing like Nordic gods in and out of bed, what s not to love One Ivan is out and proud, the other Ivan is closeted and reserved One has a place to live in between work seasons, the other drifts, ever chasing his dreams but not quite knowing what they are Their interaction was a hoot These two bears bicker and argue, scuffle and fight, s [...]


  13. I really enjoyed this This book is a window on a whole different way of living On oil rigs and on the enormous ships used to move them around, on the North Sea Where people commute from Iceland to the Netherlands As you do And it s really really cold The romance was nice too I like it when a book is well thought through.The English editing was a bit strange, but the story was good enough to get past it.


  14. I have been very eagerly awaiting this book to come out I have been a huge fan of the Teddy Bear Collection and couldn t wait for the next one Let me tell you, I was not disappointed Wow, what an emotional roller coaster the author took me through One moment I was cheering and the next sobbing These two men and their story was not only poignant but meaningful It breaks my heart that people are judged and harmed just because of who they fall in love with Who you are and who you are attracted to i [...]


  15. I have to be honest when I say I m not a big fan of bears but what I am a fan of is this author and once again she doesn t disappoint.The story of one, Ivan Voloshyn, that doesn t flaunt his sexual preferences but doesn t hide them either and one man, Ivan Blazevic, that hides it to try and make a better way for himself is told with true passion, understanding and emotion There are times in this story that the words are so descriptive that you can almost see, feel and hear what the author is des [...]

  17. For some reason I expected this story to be over the top and or cracky, the way some shifter romances are, but it turned out to be really grounded, with a great, fresh premise and a fascinating setting.


  18. One of my favorite parts of MM books is that the characters have strength, they are to a degree, equals In every trope in this genre, that has been true for me thus far That strength in particular is one of the things that struck me the most in this book.Both Ivan s who I will refer to from here on out as Ivan 1 and Ivan 2 for clarification , exude strength They both have very demanding jobs and are both leaders, responsible for many lives on treacherous seas Not an easy thing to do and on top o [...]
