I mean, it's not a new plot by far, but the characters are likable, interesting and grow on you. Definitely a good story for an evening in or two. Has a complete story with a continuing plot that carries over through the series. I will get the next on and see how it goes.

The story is OK, albeit a bit shallow. My disgruntlement is that the Product Details indicate that there are 288 pages, when in fact, there are a mere 175. Where is the truth in that?

This is the 1st book in The Wildwood series! I loved Harper and Weston's story! Weston returns home to Wildwood after leaving town 8 years prior. West and Harper have always had a thing for each other but Harper was off limits because she was his sister's BF. Right before he left 8 years ago, he gave into his wants and had a heavy make out session with Harper and then left the next morning without even a goodbye. Needless to say Harper's not been the happiest thoughts toward him after all hear years. Of course Weston runs into Harper 1st thing and neither of them can deny that the attraction is still here. Harper decides she can handle just a fling with Weston since he doesn't seem to ever want more out of a relationship. Weston's always thought about that one night years ago so can he convince Harper that he actually wants more? That's all I'm gonna give away but I really enjoyed this book! I read in under a day! About to start on the 2nd book in this series, Smolder. I can't wait to find out what happens with Lane and Delilah's story!

Can you go home even after walking away 8 years ago, never looking back? West finds himself in this predicament as his promotion sends him to the fire station in his hometown of Wildwood. He’s avoided this place for 8 years, including his family, will he be able to handle being back? Add to this that on his last night he gave into his desires and had a fabulous passionate encounter with Harper, his sister’s best friend and someone he felt he shouldn’t give in to his desires and pursue. Will Harper be happy he’s returned? Or maybe he can just avoid her? Harper is shocked when she sees West in the grocery store but her body reacts as it always does, with her pulse racing. She still doesn’t understand how they could have such a passionate encounter and then he leaves without a word. She has always loved him, ever since she was a young girl but she has moved on. Well, Harper has really settled, will West’s return push her to reexamine her life? Will she stay on the safe path? We meet all of West’s siblings along the way which gives a rich backdrop for West and Harper’s journey. Enjoyed every moment of this crazy back and forth romance. Throw in a wise and spunky Grandma and you have a perfect blend of romance, drama and suspense to escape away with.

Awesome!! I loved this story and since it has all my favorite romance reading favs going for I'm not surprised! Small town - check. Second chance story - check. Seriously sexy H - check. Sassy strong h - check (although I do think she let West off the hook a little too easly). Sizzling hot chemistry between them - double check!! Add in some fantastic writing and a story that grabs your heart and you have an amazing read! West may have returned to Wildwood intending to leave again in a couple of years just as he arrived - single and free. That's before he gets one look at the all grown up Harper!! I definitely recommend this one.

The girl he can't forget. The guy who broke her heart. West and Harper missed their chance the first time around. Who knew that a second chance was on the horizon. I received a copy of Ignite by Karen Erickson in exchange for an honest review. Ms. Erickson is well versed in understanding her readers. Her stories are sensual stories of course but they also have a hint of maturity thrown in for good measure. What appeals to me most is that she does not skimp on the emotional depth of the characters. She writes stories that are classy, not trashy. Copyright of Nightowl Reviews

3.5 stars-- IGNITE is the first installment in Karen Erickson’s contemporary, adult WILDWOOD romance series focusing on the men and women of Wildwood, California but especially the Gallagher family of brothers, and their sister Wren. This is fire fighter Weston Gallagher, and book keeper Harper Hill’s story line. Told from dual third person perspectives (Harper and Weston) IGNITE follows the rebuilding of a relationship between Harper and Weston. Eight years earlier, following a night of passion with Harper, Weston escaped the small town of Wildwood, California and never looked back. His latest assignment finds Weston back in Wildwood, and falling in the love with the woman whose heart he broke years before. Harper has never forgotten or forgiven West for walking away, and isn’t prepared to fall in love-all over again. The relationship between West and Harper is one of second chances; a rekindling of a love that was destroyed when West walked out of town without a goodbye or KMA. The rebuilding of the relationship finds our heroine looking towards the future, and never regretting the past. The $ex scenes are intimate and seductive. The secondary and supporting characters include Harper’s best friends Wren Gallagher and Delilah Moore-Delilah has a thing for Weston’s brother Lane Gallagher but her heart is constantly breaking as Lane refuses to acknowledge there is anything between he and Dee. We are also introduced to the youngest Gallagher brother Holden as well as their fire captain Tate Warren –who has caught the eye of the Gallagher sister. The world building focuses on the people of Wildwood, California and a series of suspected arson fires sweeping the town. The storyline ends with a happily ever after –for now- while the investigation into the fires is on going. There is still much more story to tell. IGNITE is a predictable second chance story line; a rebuilding of a relationship that was destroyed by a night of passion followed by an all too quick exit out of town. The premise is enjoyable; the characters are animated although their lack of maturity was not ideal for a romantic adult story line. The romance is a quick build to forgiveness and a happily ever after-for now.

Weston Gallagher left home eight years ago with the intention of leaving his bad reputation behind, and creating a life for himself outside of the shadow of his father and brother. Since leaving home he has found great success as a firefighter, he enjoys what he does and is quite good at it, which has helped him earn a promotion. A promotion that would land him back in his hometown of Wildwood, and would also require him to face everyone he left behind. He has his reservations about being back in Wildwood again, but things definitely start to look when he runs into Harper Hill. The last time he saw her they shared a very heated night together, and then he just walked away, and left her behind without so much as a goodbye. He knew at the time that he wasn't someone she needed in her life, so he thought walking away was the right thing to do, but after seeing her again and seeing the hurt lingering on her face he is regretting his past decisions. He'd love nothing more than to have the opportunity to right his wrongs, and prove to her that this time around he is a changed man, one that could be worthy of her attention... but she has a boyfriend. Harper Hill has never really gotten over her crush for her best friends brother Weston, and has often wondered if he's still as good looking as he use to be, and if her ever really cared about her at all. When he left eight years ago he took a little piece of her heart with him, and she has never really found a way to replace it, sure she's dated, but no one has ever had the effect on her that he did. She has heard rumors that he will be returning home to take a job at the fire station, and she has tried to prepare herself for the possibility of running into him again, but when she comes face to face with him in the grocery store every feeling she had for him comes rushing back and is as strong as it ever was... but she tries to fight it. Letting him back in again just isn't an option she is willing to give, he hurt her badly the first go around, and she doesn't think her fragile heart can handle being broken by him again... From the moment I read the synopsis for the book I knew it was one that I HAD to read, a story that I could really submerse myself into and just enjoy... and I have to say it totally lived up to my expectations, one paragraph into it, and I was in deep!! Weston and Harper pulled me into their world and had me instantly addicted and flying through the pages as fast as I could turn them... once I got started there was no stopping me! Their story was filled with unwavering intensity, smoldering passion, heartfelt emotion, & scorching chemistry, which helped ignite some very hot encounters that had me feeling the flames and in dire need of a fan...or my very own firefighter!! I think it is safe to say Ms. Erickson has a bestseller on her hands with this one, and a real gift for creating stories that tap into your emotions, grab you by the heart, and linger with you long after the last page is turned! If you like your fairy tales a little on the naughty side and equipped with a smooth talking firefighter who is dedicated to satisfying your every need, then look no further, Weston Gallagher is DEFINITELY your man!!
