Synopsis: After nearly a year and a half of grieving the loss of her husband, twenty-seven year old Alexa Sullivan Tate is headed back to her hometown after a decade of being away. She has no idea her high school crush, Jace McAllister, the guy who stole her heart the same night that he broke it, is more than ready to pick up the pieces.
Jace has spent the last ten years in the Army defusing bomb after bomb, trying to forget the girl who ignited all his passions. Little does he know that the spark still exists.
Ten years ago they had smoldering chemistry, but the spark between them now might light a fuse that leads to an explosion even Jace can't stop. Not that he wants to. If only Alexa can get past her guilt and trust her heart again.
But how do you put it all on the line when you've already lost everything once before?
Favourite quote: "But that's the thing about love. It's a risk, a gamble, and life could deal you any hand that could instantly turn your world upside down."
I thought that I was going to love this book, but I have too be honest and say that I liked it, but I didn't love it as much as I was hoping too! My rating for this book wavered between 4 and 4.5 and I would definitely have given the ending 4.5, but I felt that overall the book deserved 4! I discovered this book on Goodreads one day and I loved the cover, so I checked out the synopsis! I was intrigued, so when I saw Blog Tour sign-ups, I quickly signed up and was really excited when I got on it! As I said, I liked this book, but I did have a few problems with it as well! The plot of this book was written really well, but I felt that it dragged a bit at the beginning and that it took a while for anything to actually happen, like the main characters relationship development! The plot was also pretty anticlimactic! It stayed on the one level and didn't waver or start to get climatic until the last 5%! It was so beautiful though and I did enjoy it! I loved the plot, but I would have loved it even more if a bit more action scenes were added to make it more climatic! There were some seriously hot scenes though that just made this book for me though! They were crazy hot! The characters were amazing! Alexa was the main female character and at the beginning of this book I found it a little hard to connect with her! I mean she had been through a lot and she was trying to come to terms with what she has been through, but as the book progressed I was able to start connecting with her! My heart went out to Alexa, but she was such a strong character! I really liked Alexa, but I loved her when she let herself go and she finally realised what was right in front of her! She was a much more relaxed person when she let herself go as well! Jace was the main male character in this book and he was such a sweetheart! I loved him and plus, he was pretty, damn hot! He was also in a seriously dangerous profession, but he was one Hell of a Soldier! Getting to see his profession thorough his eyes was eye opening! I wasn't expecting to experience this whilst reading this book, so it did surprise me, but it was an eye opening surprise! I loved that this book was written from both Alexa and Jace's point of views as sometimes this book followed their separate stories and it was interesting to see their relationship develop through both of their eyes! The secondary characters in this book were brilliant! They were so funny and they added a lot to the story! I will definitely be reading the next book in this series! I know that it's not going to be about Alexa and Jace, in fact I have no idea who it is going to be about, but I'm still excited to read it! I hope Alexa and Jace make an appearance in it too! The cover for this book is initially what made me want to read it! It is stunning and it definitely suits the book! Big thank you to Tessa for an ARC of Ignite and to Love Between the Sheets for having me on the Blog Tour!

I'm a twenty six year old book junkie who is also obsessed with sports. Bengals, Buckeyes, Reds are my teams! I work for the government during the day, hang out with Air National Guard on the weekends, and am married to a guy 15 inches taller than me. We're quite the pair! We currently live right outside of Dayton, OH with our two cats.
I've been reading since I was a kid. My mom was a librarian, so it was a given. Heck, she even made sure we watched Wishbone instead of the Smurfs. In 2011 when I graduated from college, my mom bought me a Nook, and then in the summer of 2012 I found this amazing site called Goodreads. I was introduced to so many amazing indie/self-published authors. After reading almost 400 books that year, my husband gave me the push to finally sit down and write my own. It was a rocky start, but over time the words started flowing and I couldn't get Jace and Lexi out of my head.
If I’m not writing or looking through tons of photos of hot men, all in the name of research, then you can probably find me curled up with my Kindle, ignoring the rest of the world. I love my sports almost as much as I love my books. My other obsessions include red wine, hot men, country music, and all things Grace Potter.
