I received this book for free from in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.
In Legacy, Colorado, I buried my father alongside his elite Hotshot team.
Ten years later, IÔÇÖve followed in his footstepsÔÇöfighting fires in the mountains of Alaska with my brother.
Amid the flames, nothing ignites me like Avery Claire.
SheÔÇÖs stubborn, strong, sexy as hell, and my best friend.
She also has no idea that IÔÇÖm in love with her.
But Colorado is calling me home, needing every Legacy-born firefighter to successfully rebuild our fathersÔÇÖ team.
One night will change everything between us,
But sheÔÇÖs tied to Alaska and my future is in Colorado.
Now IÔÇÖm torn between what my honor demands,
And what my heart canÔÇÖt live without
ThereÔÇÖs something so delicious about a ÔÇ£friendsÔÇØ becoming ÔÇ£something moreÔÇØ story. Maybe itÔÇÖs the conflict of mine versus almost mine , or I want it to be mine, but itÔÇÖs definitely a unique form of torture. Well, at least I think River Maldonado would say itÔÇÖs torture and his best friend, Avery Claire, she would say itÔÇÖs longing. Together they have a great chance at a happily ever after – but first they have to get it together and learn to take a chance.
This novella gave me that warm and fuzzy feeling from the get go. I immediately hooked by Rivers alpha male hotness. I believe DAY-YUMMM describes what my mind conjures up. But, he also has a unique gentleness that creates that oh so right balance. He doesnÔÇÖt hide his adoration for Avery but he fights his feelings purely out of fear of losing her – should she not feel the same way about him. Avery has so much responsibility and at a young age sheÔÇÖs pretty much the head of her small family. There’s a sadness that it invokes – a feeling that she may never have a life outside of family demands. They share a trait in that they are both duty bound to their families. ItÔÇÖs really a cornerstone value that connects them.
Without going too far into the plot, a situation arises that is just the nudge they need to make a change. They might have kept things status quo (although I doubt River would take much more of hiding his feelings) and it serves as a great plot driver. For River, itÔÇÖs all about his legacy and it says so much about he is. What he is willing to do for his family, for himself, and the woman he loves. Avery would hate it, but I did feel pity for her and the situation she inherited. I empathized with her and felt the desperation of how stuck she feels
Ignite is only the second book by Rebecca Yarros IÔÇÖve read with Point of Origin being the first. I love the tie in between the stories, but you can definitely read them as stand alone books. The characters and story line are wonderful and what solidifies Ignite a 5 star read is RebeccaÔÇÖs writing; itÔÇÖs thoughtful and smooth, and sucks you in right away. It didnÔÇÖt hurt that the story is set in Colorado (my home) so it was very easy for me to visualize the town of ÔÇ£LegacyÔÇØ and fall in love with the charm of it. 5 Stars and recommendation!
