    After the ending of The Masterpiecers I’ve been dying to read this book I loved this book than the previous book So good If you have liked The Masterpiecers you need to read this book I went in blind and the first surprise was that the book isn’t told from the Redd sisters’ Ivy and Aster pov but from Brook and Josh’s povBrook is part of the tv show ‘The Masterpiecers’ I remember that while reading The Masterpiecers I was constantly wondering if Brook was a bad guy or not He showed his good side but then it usually didn’t take long before he did something stupid or weird I was happy that I got his story in this book and I wanted to know him better I want to say so much about Brook but it don’t want to spoil anything and I want you to find out if he’s really bad or notJosh is Aster’s ex He still cares about the Redd sisters and would do anything for them He visits Aster every day and he supports Ivy’s dream of being an artist I already loved him in The Masterpiecers and I still love him after this bookIf you’re looking for a very romantic and steamy book than this is not your book I didn’t miss the romance because the story is really good and there were enough twists and turns that made me wanting to know everything The Masterminds is uniue poignant emotional and suspenseful Like it said before I went in blind and you should too I’m not going to say anything about the plot because the timeline is pretty much the same as The Masterpiecers There was also a little bit about what happened before the show started and after the show ended I loved the last chapter but I do hope that the author decides to write a little about themI listened to the audiobook of this book It was my first experience with audiobooks and it was a success I already look forward to listening to books I loved the narration There was only one voice for Brook and Josh The narrator used accents and emotions His voice was a little softer when Ivy or Aster talked I was never distracted while listening I enjoyed every minute of the than 8 hours listening time My honest review is based on an audiobook provided by the author

    Joshua Cooper has been in the middle of a investigation of a mob runner that is coming dangerously close to two of his best friends Ivy and Astor Redd The two girls are twins who have both in their own ways become involved in Joshua's investigation Ivy had sold a uilt to the mob runner and Aster hits him with her car in a motel parking lot Meanwhile Brook Jackson is a judge on the Masterpiecers’s art competition that Ivy was accepted as a contestant Brook has done his share of uestionable activities but now he wants to prove himself to Ivy and clear his name so he cuts a deal with Joshua Now it's Joshua's job to prove the real thieves and help the twins The Masterminds is the second book in the Masterful series by Olivia Wildenstein This book starts off before the events in the first book then through what was going on and then expands past the end of that story all while switching the POVs that the story is told from the twins in the first book to Joshua and Brooke in this installment I'd recently read another series that did something similar to this one and with each of these series I have had my moments of doubt when I think why reread things I had already read But again the author has proven me wrong in thinking I'm going to get the same story when it truth this felt a lot like reading a completely different book with the change of angle and story focus Great job making something new and compelling while refreshing the story from before and continuing it onward with this installment Overall this was a great series whether reading both books or just one or the other of them both stories had their own feel and took on a life of their own after switching characters which I was very impressed with and again had the pages turning reading to see what would happen in the end I received an advance copy from the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an honest reviewFor reviews please visit

    45 StarsARC provided by the publisher via Netgalley Josh Cooper is involved in an investigation that tests his moral lines he wishes he could share it with the twins Ivy and Astrid but the worry of him chasing a known mobster would only be on top of their already full plates He's determined to catch the bad guy even so when the mobster's death starts to tie back to the twins and the reality TV show one of them is participating in He'll do anything to disprove the crime breaking every rule he swore he'd follow when he became an officer of the law Brook Jackson is a judge on The Masterpiecers a reality TV show dedicated to the competitive art world and the school he is an alumnae of While he shines like wealth his family is slowly falling to ruins and he'd do anything to save them from the shame of poverty even so far as to commit crimes for his friends that have connections to the mob But the crimes are painting the beautiful Ivy Redd into a poor light and are causing harsh issues for her sister behind bars He's willing to take the fall to save Ivy and her sister but they may all fall when his friends turn on him too We are getting somewhere but it's not anywhere I want to get to if the twins are truly knowingly involvedThe Masterminds is the second book in The Mastersful series by Olivia Wildenstein While book one was told from the POV of the twin sisters Ivy and Astrid The Masterminds is told from the alternating POVs of two important men in their lives Josh has been in the girl's lives forever he's than a friend he's family and he's a cop determined to prove the media wrong about them Brook should be little than a judge on The Masterpiecers reality TV competition but he only has eyes for Ivy and his knowledge of certain crimes is shocking Like the previous novel Olivia Wildenstein knows how to shock readers with twists and turns Every character's tie to another character or event surprised me and mixed in with the mystery is dedication obsession and romance Her mouth curves with a smile that takes my breath away If only that smile was for me At least it's not for my brotherI was wary of reading the same story from The Masterpiecers again with a new POV especially after reading the very revealing summary but it was so good; entertaining and gripping even so than the previous novel was It felt like a different book because the perspectives were so drastically different It also gives the reader a perspective on motive an angle readers don't think of when they side with only one half of the story The situations were filled with action with a different type of fear and a different reason to push for the innocence of the sisters It makes the reader uestion the crimes and to reevaluate everything one took from the previous novel I found The Masterminds to be a gripping novel with a plot that was so much than just a repeat of the series' previous release The Masterpiecers The story is compelling and the suspense will keep readers turning the page waiting to find out what could happen next I am a huge fan of The Masterful series and I absolutely recommend it to readers looking for a tale filled with deceit mystery and even romance

  5. Sue Wallace Sue Wallace says:

    Masterminds By Olivia Wildenstein is a natural read The only downside to Joshua cooper's investigation of a mob runner is not being able to discuss it with his two best friend’s nineteen year old twins aster and ivy redd Absolutely fantastic series Loved it Full of twists and plots Great story and great characters Highly recommended 5 Thanks to tbc and the author for the arc


  6. Selina Selina says:

    I can't decide whether I hated or loved this Definitely not in a bad way though The ending left me torn but the story was just so intriguing Once again we are walked through the events of the first book but only this time it's through Josh's and Brook's POV Even though personally I'm not a fan of multiple POVsIt was refreshing to be in Brook's mind and be able to know what he was thinking throughout the show His interaction with Ivy and what he thought of her during those interactions It was heartbreaking frankly It was sad But it was also lovely I was rooting for him the entire time Heck I was rooting for him back when I was reading Ivy and Aster's POV in the first book This book does shine light on some of the mysteries of the first book and helps delve deeper into the same connected story However it's not until the last few chapters that we get a glimpse as to what happens after the events of the first book I came in thinking this was going to be a direct seuel but it was of the events from the first book but from Josh's and Brook's POV And then the last few chapters were the seuel aspect of the story Josh Oh Josh Talk about heartbreak It was so fun to see just how much Josh cared about the twins Everything that he did revolved around them and he always put them ahead of anyone else including himself He was constantly putting himself into dangerous situations in order to protect the twins as best he could He put them ahead of his love life view spoilerwhich is fine by me because secretly I've been rooting for him to get back together with Aster hide spoiler

    The Masterminds is a Masterful read 5 STARS all the way Before I tell you what I loved I want to thank Olivia Wildenstein for my advanced copy I loved THE MASTERPIECERS was amazing and so well crafted that I couldn’t wait to see what came next As in THE MASTERPIECERS this book is split into two POVs we get into the minds of Josh who I loved in the first book and Brook who I wanted to know about so this was a perfect combination Brook Jackson is one of the Judges for THE MASTERPIECERS in my opinion he is a broken man looking for his missing piece The way this story is constructed you are able to go through Ivy’s experience on the show through the eyes of Brook who is torn between wanting to get to know the perfection that is Ivy and not repeating history and upsetting his brother Chase yet again Brook becomes the fall guy for money laundering plot that is the center of this story You as a reader aren’t sure if you want to hug him or yell at him by the end of the story Then you have to add to the euation Joshua Cooper The cop the the best friend and the good guy to Brook’s bad guy I loved the bits and pieces of Josh’s life that show the way he interacts with everyone in his life He is a sneaky cop that works his way back on the case against Brook I love his creativity his smart ass personality it makes the story so much fun to read All and all Ms Wildenstein makes you fall in love with her characters Makes you want to keep reading and most of all makes you smile because there’s enough romance in the story to make you cheer and smile So if you are looking for a book to blow YOUR MIND this is the book for YOU

    really captivating read started it Friday morning and didn't want to put it down I haven't read the first in the series yet but this book works very well as a stand alone novel so would recommend it to everyone whether you have read the first book or not it took me a couple of chapters to get into it as each chapter is written from a different person's perspective but once I got over that the many twists and turns kept me interested in all the main characters all the way through and I wanted to know what would happen to them as I was reading I would definitely recommend it to everyone and will be reading the first book in the series next
