Publisher's Summary

My new neighbor is a firefighter - and a scorching-hot single dad - but I swear I didn’t set off that smoke alarm on purpose.

(And I was beyond mortified when he rushed in and saw me naked.)

Nothing happened, of course - because I, Winnie MacAllister, romance junkie and owner of a constantly broken heart, have sworn off men for one solid year. Even protective men with chiseled jaws, bulging biceps, and deep brown eyes that make my breath come faster. Even former SEALs with broad chests and strong hands that make my skin sizzle. Even gorgeous, grumpy guys who have their hands full raising two adorable little girls and claim they don’t believe in love. 

Until Dex kisses me one night, and I drop all my defenses.

(Also my underwear.)

He says he’s not gentle, and he’s right. He says I should take the dream job I’m offered in another state, and he’s right. He says he’s too old for me and could never be the man I deserve.

He’s wrong.

Dex and I might be 12 years apart, but the fire between us is the kind that will never burn out. 

How can I convince him to give happily-ever-after with me a chance?

Loved this

Lovely story… such a great move by the author to do a spin off from the Cloverleigh farm series. Loved how their were references to Franie and Mac’s story.I couldn’t stop listening. Great book highly recommend.

Single dad Story

This is a single dad romance. It's an entertaining story the single dad is extremely grumpy. its age gap. I always love the creative way the authors have the children do different scenes. The narrators did an excellent job of bringing the characters to life.

A book for the hopeless romantic

Winnie was such a fun hopeless romantic who I was so able to relate to and to see the good in everyone. Dex was the yummy broody grumpy single dad alpha. I love how their story came together and oh his kids were such a delight. This was truly a heart warming story.

Very Cute!

It was everything you’d expect from a Melanie Harlow book.
The story was definitely a nod to Mac and Franny, but I wasn’t mad about it.
I loved their love story, so to be able to sort of relive a version of that with their daughter was great.

The single/grumpy dad who is older than the female
lead is a timeless classic, and I’d 10/10 recommend a listen.

Now, I’m off to read Taste! Finally!

Dex and Winnie

This story was very cute in that both Winnie and Dex weren't looking for Love. Each one had their reasons and tried to ignore each other, even though Dex moved in next door to Winnie. His two daughters Hallie and Luna are absolutely precious and actually help to break the ice between them.
There's several funny moments, but also some heartbreaking one's too.

Most Vapid female character I have ever read.

I read and listen to a LOT of romance, and can forgive a lot of faults. I quit this book partway through the second chapter (15 pages in according to kindle). The female love interest was insultingly bad. Her introduction is perving on her neighbor while painting her toes like some 70's Highschool-girl cliché. She's not only talking to her cat - which would be quirky and fun if she wasn't ALSO obsessing over her neighbor that she has only seen through a window minutes ago like a psychopathic stalker... falling "half in love" with someone because they're hot and you made up some fantasy about them is not some made up "emophelia" attachment style - it's an obsessive disorder. I was in the market for a romance, not a stalker fantasy.

The narrators were both very good.

LOVED THIS!

Age gap/grumpy-sunshine/firefighter SWOON!

This is a second generation Cloverleigh Farms story but can totally be listened to by itself without the prior stories.

I really liked how this story slowly progressed. They started off as neighbors, progressed to friends, to friends with benefits to FEELINGS!! lol

Neither one of them was sure what to do about the big F word and they both needed some time to work through them.

The big grand gesture was so sweet!! 😍😍😍

The little girls in this story were simply adorable and just make you want to hug them!

This book was narrated by Stephen Dexter and Kirsten Leigh. They were perfect for these characters! They are both high on my favorites list.

So Much YES!

Wow - this book was amazing and so scorchingly hot! It’s easily one of my favorites this year!

The tension between Dex and Winnie is immediate and delicious. They’re the perfect blend of grouchy and charming and everything in between.

‘I could easily start to crave the way he’d made my heart pound, the way he’d given me butterflies, the way he’d stolen that kiss from me like he knew he couldn’t afford it but he had to have it anyway.’

Melanie Harlow has created a beautifully flawed hero and the sunniest, most lovable heroine. Dex and Winnie are fun and flirty and positively addictive!

What a great story!

I have to admit that when certain authors announced they have a book coming soon, I can’t contain my excitement. Melanie Harlow is one of those authors, let me tell you, Ignite is worthy of your time. It’s full of heart, great banters and conversations, two adorable little girls, a grumpy hot firefighter, a lovable heroine and a cat named Piglet, I mean how cute is that? The book has me laughing and crying at the same time, I have to admit that Hallie and Luna make the book that much more fun. Sexy Dexy gives a new meaning to the term grumpy and if I’m being honest I always love the way author Melanie writes her grumpy heroes and makes me fall head over heels for them. Ignite is a memorable love story that will tug at your heart Strings.

Let this story Ingite your ears

This is a stand-alone but it’s part of Melanie Harlow's Cloverleigh Farms series . You see some of the characters from stories. I strongly suggest getting those also .
Hero is Dex. Heroine is Winnie .
Dex is a single dad with two daughters, and a firefighter. When Dex moves next door to Winnie her hearts go bump bump bump . Winnie is trying hard to fight her attraction to Dex. She’s taking a break from the opposite $ex altogether Grab it and see when Winnie and Dex give their attraction a go .


Stephen Dexter, Kirsten Leigh Performance is fantastic. They both brought the story and characters to live
