Publisher's Summary

They call me a hero. I save people. It's what I do. It's the only thing I've ever wanted to do.

Then I meet her - the girl with the sad eyes. She's lost everything. Twice. And I know she's using me to forget her past.

Just when things seem perfect, that past threatens with the unimaginable.

They may call me a hero. But she's the one person I can't save.

Another Must Read - This author is truly special!

I was waiting for this story as Sebastian is a character we meet in Stealing Sawyer and I really wanted a constructed happily ever after for him. I hope you can multi-task because this story sucks you in at the very beginning so it's difficult to "adult" and hit pause when life's priorities are calling. I found this author last year and quickly consumed her stories. she's truly exceptional. Her characters are usually dealing with major trauma or life altering circumstances, but it's believable and understandable and easy to sympathize with their journeys. The thing is, I have a low threshold for stories with angst, after reading Ms. Christy's stories I realize that most of the angsty storylines that bother me are the drama filled characters that just need to take a breath but choose to create barriers for themselves. Ms. Christy's characters have usually gone through something really awful, like tear up when you listen to it, awful. Igniting Ivy is no different. Ivy has gone through a horrible loss so the chance she takes with opening her heart to Seb and the chance he takes on Ivy makes for a compelling love story. The last kudos I will give about this story and many of Ms. Christy's stories, is that she has mastered the plot twist or little plot bomb. You think you know how the story will end or flow, but you don't and its always magical. I highly recommend this book and any others by this author.

3.5 Stars

I hate to leave this low of a rating on this book but... I feel horrible for what Ivy has gone through. Her story is horrific and I wouldn't wish it on anyone. But I feel equally horrible for Bass. He hasn't had it easy in the love department and when he finally finds the one, she pushes him away to the point that I didn't think there was any way they could be fixed. I was so very happy I was wrong, I should have known better since it's their book and all. You may be asking yourself, then why the low rating? Well, here's my opinion. I loooove this Author, I devour everything she writes...usually. There was a lot of shiz that went down in this book and some of it was completely unnecessary. In fact, one character, in my opinion, should have been more present in the story-line because of his involvement. When they finally found their way back to one another, I was beyond ecstatic. I mean, hello? I love Bass and he so deserves his HEA, which he did get, hallelujah. But after the last bomb drops, I don't know how he could not finally call it quits. I mean he was robbed of so much and they just carry on like it's no big deal. Um, it's a big deal. Anyone in this situation would think it's a HUGE deal. I know this is completely vague, but I'm not a spoilery kinda gal. So I'll say this. Read it. Form your own options. Would I recommend this book? Absolutely, just bring tissues and an open mind.

‘Daisies gonna make everything better.’

The book was amazing and Erin and Teddy did a great job bringing Ivy and Sebastian to life. Ivy endures something no woman should have to and while in Hawaii trying to find herself Sebastian is brought into her path. As a firefighter, Sebastian wants to break down her walls to save her. But the question is, can he? Grab some tissues and find out! “Sometimes it only takes one day, one moment even, for everything to change.”

Bass is the perfect book boyfriend!

I loved everything about the hero in this story. Ivy has undergone terrible loss. I struggled with some of the choices she makes. One of the signs of a good story is when it elicits emotions from you (good and bad). I was hooked and finished this book in one day. Even though I was frustrated with Ivy, I love the way Bass persisted in his feelings. There is nothing sexier than a man who is not afraid of his feelings and willing to support the people he loves.

Gut wrenching romance with all the feels

Couldn’t have ask for better narration duo than #themuffandtheham. What a gut wrenching story from Samantha Christy. All the recollection chapters made me teary eyed (definitely an ugly cry) Love all the emotions the book evoked, the tenderness, the sadness, and the elation are so well narrated. So glad that Bas got his own HEA with Ivy.

Samantha Christie really surprised me with this story about loss and grief. Ivy really frustrated me with her poor decision making skills regarding her pregnancy and her relationship with Sebastian. I realize that she was devastated by the fatality of losing two children but she did not make logical/rational decisions regarding her relationship which caused unnecessary heartache for both Sebastian and herself! Teddy Hamilton and Erin Mallon were both great narrators. Their performances provoked so much emotion and introspection about what it means to really love, sacrifice and lose someone.

Amazing

This book was absolutely amazing and narrated so well by Erin and Teddy. The Emotional you feel from Erin brought me to tears. . A rollercoaster of emotions from start to finish. Great to see old faces back in the book again too, Dr K sneaking in too. Samantha knows how to keep you involved and engrossed. This touches on a very difficult subject, but handled and written brilliantly. Tissues are a requirement. “Daisies gonna make everything better” 😢

Emotional & Heartbreaking

Ivy goes to Hawaii after tragedy hits her. Sebastian goes to Hawaii after being left at the alter. They meet and have connection and end up falling in love. Event tears them apart but Sebastian won’t let it go. Samantha writes a powerful, heartbreak story that will make you ugly cry but will leave you smiling in the end with a happy ending. Teddy & Erin knocked it out of the the park really capturing their character emotions. Definitely a five star read.

Utterly superb!! Ugly Cry and Happy Tears!!

Oh Bas...I’m so glad I decided to bite the bullet and listen to this one. I fell in love with The Perfect Game series. Christy is the type of author that will make you ugly cry, throw something and then ugly cry at the HEA! Bas and Ivy...yes it was frustrating but you just keep listening, finished this in a day! Just the absolute best ❤️
