Genre: Contemporary, Series, Action, Suspense
Two of Noah’s Army buddies are dead.
Someone has taken shots at Noah.
And now Noah’s former lover, JB, is a target.
Noah, Rowe, and JB team up to track down a killer trying to take out all of Noah’s old Army team in hopes of covering up a dark secret.
But this trip to Washington, D.C. threatens to unravel the perfect life that Rowe and Noah have built over the past three years. JB’s arrival in their lives have Rowe and Noah wondering if they want the same thing for their happily ever after.
Rowe is sure of one thing—nobody threatens his man. And he sets out to show anyone with a hidden agenda what a bad decision that was.
This is a series I’ve heard very good things about, but haven’t read before now. A couple of pages into this story I was totally hooked and wondering why I haven’t picked up this series before! I’ll have to do something about that. Although this was my first read of the series, it didn’t detract from my enjoyment of this story, and I thought the authors did a great job in writing it so a newbie didn’t feel lost, despite it being part of a series.
Although this story is Rowe and Noah’s, I loved the other characters, and need more of them. A big drawcard for me is the family feel between those who work at Ward Security, and how it’s obvious they all care about each other. As an aside, I love JB. He needs his own book. I felt sorry for him, with his unrequited love for Noah, although he realised very early on that Noah’s only interested in Rowe. Noah’s fear of losing Rowe came across very well too. The emotional scenes are very well written, and I liked that one person’s HEA isn’t necessarily another’s.
The details and characterisations add so much to this story, which is an edge-of-your seat action drama that kept me turning pages. Despite the situation, there were bits that made me laugh, fist pump, and think, oh that’s perfect. I loved Gidget’s ring tone, the banter between all the guys, the code names, and the duct tape. The way Noah and JB work together to get information out of one of the ‘bad guys’ was very clever, and original. The authors have put a lot of thought and research into this story, and the way the guys operate as a security firm, and it pays off wonderfully well. The action scenes feel very realistic, and believable, as Rowe, Noah, and JB come across as men with experience in special ops. Again, the details make the story, like Rowe removing their license plate before they go bad guy hunting.
I love how Rowe is so territorial toward Noah, berates himself for it, yet slowly and grudgling forms a friendship with JB. I also liked how these guys aren’t perfect, and they make mistakes. It makes them more realistic, and I prefer my heroes to have a few flaws. Perfect is boring! These guys are more than a little crazy, but in a good way, and that made them all the more appealing.
I’d recommend Ignite to readers who enjoy a fast moving suspense story with fabulous characters, banter, and strong sense of family. 5 out of 5 stars. More please.
