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.

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.

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! “Sometimes it only takes one day, one moment even, for everything to change.”

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.

So much emotion

The growth of Ivy and Sebastian/Bas' relationship was beautifully written. I love Bas- I loved him in the baseball series and I adored him in this book. But along with that was a bit of pain-I cried a lot during this book, as I imagined living through what Ivy had to. It was heartbreaking. So, the author truly did a great job with the story line and with pulling many emotions out of the reader. The one thing is that I felt like the issues with Ivy dragged on a bit and that her family enabled her a bit. It may be really what would happen in real life but as a reader, I kind of wanted it to conclude a little faster. I read the ebook a while ago and then recently bought the audiobook and my goodness, the audiobook, narrated by Teddy Hamilton and Erin Mallon was fantastic. I especially loved Teddy Hamilton's narration, which provides enough grit and emotion that it really drew me into the story. I love Erin Mallon but she has an interesting cadence and usually has a lilt at the end of her sentences which can be a little disrupting. I don't know why I noticed them more in this book- maybe because of the deep emotion and the desire for the angst to end a little quicker? Who knows. That said, these two are still some of the best narrators and overall, I was fully immersed in this story in part because of the fantastic narration.

Samantha Christie really surprised me with this story about loss and grief. Ivy really frustrated me with her poor decision making skills regarding her pregnancy and her relationship with Sebastian. I realize that she was devastated by the fatality of losing two children but she did not make logical/rational decisions regarding her relationship which caused unnecessary heartache for both Sebastian and herself! Teddy Hamilton and Erin Mallon were both great narrators. Their performances provoked so much emotion and introspection about what it means to really love, sacrifice and lose someone.

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.
