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.

Loved

I don’t have anything negative to say about this book! The only thing I could even ask more of was maybe another chapter at the end to really close things up. I also loved that we heard from Brady, Sawyer and even Kyle Stone. It was like a cast reunion at one point and we got to hear kind of what was going on in their lives at the time. Can’t wait to get to the next one!

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.

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.

Ivy

Thank Goodness for Bass because Ivy's character was so annoying!! I had to skip through all her chapters. Sorry but the book could have been so good if not for her whining and shutting Bass out

Emotionally riveting!

Talk about a rollercoaster of emotions! Sadness, love, happiness, anger, frustration! Loved it all! The added bonus of the hot firefighters is just the cherry on top! Thank you Samantha Christy for this great listen! The narration was awesome too!

Good book

This book seemed to drag on and on about the babies deaths.
Samantha Christy has some great books, and the narrators are the best!

Stunningly beautiful.

Oh my god. Where do I even start? Well this story was absolutely heartbreaking and heart wrenching in every way. The subject matter in the main plot was truly so sad but dealt with so beautifully and with a great deal of care.

Teddy Hamilton and Erin Mallon made this book so much more. They narrated it perfectly. The emotion and heartbreak in their narration was so evident. In my opinion, possibly their best work!!

The plot is so believable and really draws you in. You feel he pain and grief with the characters throughout this story. It is such a hard and difficult road that the main characters travel until they find their true happiness. But my goodness when they find their happiness you can’t help but feel genuinely, truly happy for them both. It has such a perfect ending and you are really rooting for the main characters throughout the entire story.

Samantha Christie is such an amazing writer and I adore everything she has ever written.

Good storyline

Good writing, love the series but too much suspense. Ivy was just too much, I wanted to pull my hair out. I have to fall for Sebastian because he wasn't my favourite person when penny and sawyer were together. however I fell for him. was so mad at Ivy for Sebastian missing the pregnancy.

tears and babies

I wish the dust cover had revealed that little bit of info as I wouldn't have listened. I love the chapter that belonged to Bas and his work..but the rest.....well i don't have kids and I'm not maternal so i absolutely drowned in the book...drowned in tears and babies. if I'd known I would have passed......30 something chapters of tears and babies.....On boy!!
teddy was the perfect voice for bas......he was quietly calm and gave one the impression that the hero was genuine and level headed.
Erin is brilliant as always having to do a lot of crying tone /talk

if you love baby stories then get ya tissues and knock yourself out. I prefer the baseball series, am worried about denvers story as I don't want babies and tears again.
