Ignite is a second chance love story of a married couple. Jack/Ace abandoned his wife 2 years ago. He just left. After 2 years of trying to find him and serve him with divorce papers, Quinn finally hires a PI to track him down. She drives the 4 hours away to confront him. However, he doesn’t want to let her go. He knows he made the biggest mistake of his life in walking away from Quinn and wants her back. Quinn is so hurt that she just can’t imagine letting him destroy her again.
I loved Quinn. She is quirky and makes all kinds of pop culture/geek references that I found adorable! At one point she is wearing a Sailor Moon shirt and I was like “YES!!!” this girl is my soul mate! She names her cat Amy Pond. She is an introvert and fell in love with Jack very quickly. When he left, she waited for a year before she began to accept he wasn’t returning and started the divorce proceedings. She didn’t want it to be true. My heart hurt for her because she was vulnerable and kind. Her BFF Max is the total opposite. Max is loud, brash, and not afraid to tell it like it is, so she is a great yin to Quinn’s yang.
Jack/Ace was much harder for me to like. He loves Quinn and knows he made a mistake. But did he do anything? NO!! She had to come to him. If he really cared that much, why didn’t he ever try to fix it? Why didn’t he at least give her the divorce if, as he says, he felt that he wasn’t good enough for her? Either way, he kept her in a state of limbo that made me want to nut punch him. A lot. Repeatedly. While I did swoon over his ‘win my wife back’ behavior, I still wasn’t swooning for him. Ok, maybe a little. But only a little.
Ace is now in an MC so Quinn is thrust into that world and its very different for her. I enjoyed the MC aspect of this story. The brotherhood is great and the ‘old ladies’ are awesome women. I haven’t read the previous books in the series, but I will certainly go back and read them now! Ignite is a character driven story and that is well written and kept me reading. I felt invested in the relationship between Jack and Quinn.
If you like MC romance, Ignite is great pick! If you like the second chance trope, I think this is a perfect pick. For me, second chance is even better when the couple is/was married!
