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!

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.

Yes!

I really enjoyed this book. I found it to have more substance than a typical romantic comedy. Not all sex, sex, sex and not so corny. The storyline had me engaged and I even teared up in 2 parts. I would definitely recommend.

DEPRESSING AS HELL!! ( NOT SEXY)

This book starts out interesting but takes a nose dive fast!! I feel the writer created an incredibly week female lead character. Not interesting to me! Ivy cries about 1000 times in this audio book to the point where it's sickening... she is an extremely emotional character that should be in a psych Ward not breeding children, she is an emotional basket case and the exact type of candidate that should never have children. Instead of trying to have more kids she should have had her tubes tied! Why would any writer...write such an emotional inferior character? The only thing I liked about this audio book were the voices of the narrator's... they're both excellent and I have enjoyed listening to their voices and other books. This book was filed under sexy but there is nothing sexy about it ...everything ends in the lead character ivy crying to the point of hysteria. Also after listening to ivy's back story on getting pregnant several times on purpose and high school before the age of 18 makes me feel that she is a complete idiot. High school students have no clue what the world is about they also don't have jobs nor savings nor money nor a roof over their head the thought of a teenager purposely trying to get pregnant is 100% ridiculous and Mostly selfish and regards to not being able to provide for a new human being. To Be perfectly honest, this book really pissed me off. I enjoy listening to thriller romances after a long day of work instead of watching the movie I find them fun and relaxing and it takes my mind to a different place. This book was none of that it was actually stressful listening - I had no sympathy for Ivy's character she sounds like a dumb broad. Hopefully the next read by this author will be better if not I will no longer be buying these books...Namaste
