Alexa is surprised to find out that her old high school best friend and love of her life is also going to be in attendance at the reunion, Jace McAllister. Alexa and Jace were BFF's in high school and had lots of chemistry, but little opportunity.
This book is about reuniting the two high school 'almost' sweethearts and how they bring their relationship from estranged friends, to loving couple.
Jace is travels to Afghanistan a lot on tours because he is a defuses bombs for the military. He joined right after high school and has been with the military since then. So Alexa and Jace have to work out details of their past and how they can work out their future since he works in such a dangerous job, that also take him away for long periods of time.
This book has it's HEA with no cliffhanger. It also has A LOT of sex scenes.
What did I like about this book?
- The characters seem like they truly love each other (or at least have a ton of chemistry)and you want to see them together. It's nice to see them happy at the end. So happy - cut ending.
- There isn't the silly and long dragged out misunderstanding, nor huge angst (some, but not huge), no super evil villains, no crazy plot twists that make you want to scream
- HEA, no cliffhanger, no series that i had to read in order
- Steamy sex scenes
- AVA AVA AVA - the daughter...laughed out loud, she is so friggin' funny.Read more ›
Jase is a too-good-to-be-true hero (frankly emasculating him as a result) who folds into all cliches including singing while he slow dances with his girlfriend on the beach, to social media stalking her over the years, to daydreaming when Lexi is tucking in her niece that he was playing imaginary family with the three of them, to his looking forward to taking Lexi to his class reunion so he can dance with her. Really?! This is a bomb diffusing career military man. He did not speak as one, and gushed like a teenage girl for most of the book.
Ignite manages to pack in just about every romance book cliche including lines like "I won't bite. Until you ask me to." to "Like what you see?" There are endless sappy letters and droning conversations about love and longing between the hero and heroine. Beyond the dialogue being full of cliches and dragging on, Jace and Lexi are written in a very wholesome and juvenile way. I also found it perplexing how Lexi's 52 year old parents are written as if they are 72.
I wish I had my time back that I sank into this book.
Jace McAllister. Ugh this man was dreamy and pure lust. I’d climb him like a tree if I could. He played baseball in High School where he meets Alexa his sophomore year and they become best friends. On his senior year Jace is about to go off to join the Army and he finally decides that it’s time to declare his feelings to Alexa. In my opinion it was just really bad timing and in that moment it wasn’t meant to be. Fast forward 10 years, it’s his high school reunion and fate puts Alexa back in his path.
Alexa Sullivan. She is the girl who loves sports and you’d always find her watching the High School baseball games. She had a crush on Jace from the very first moment she laid eyes on him and soon they become best friends, spending a lot of time together. The sad part was that everyone who knew them could see the feelings they had for one another and they were completely blind to it. Fast forward 10 years, Alex has become a widow and she’s lost and afraid, until her sister Sierra invites her to her 10 year high school reunion, where low and behold she reconnects with Jace, her high school crush.
Oh man these two were explosive together (see what I did there lol). Their chemistry was off the charts and their moments together were very sweet but Jace wanted more and Alexa was afraid to risk losing her heart once again if anything were to happen to Jace in the battle field. What I loved the most was the fact that Jace never gave up on their love. He fought. This ultimately was a great story and I loved the ending so much. I felt it was perfect for them. I’m looking forward to reading Knox’s book because oh my lawd that man had me swooning just as much as Jace #yum.
