With a gorgeous setting and fun characters, IGNITE is a short novella that is long on passion.
Natalie Carter has had THE biggest crush on her friend Sebastian forever, but he put her in the friend zone back in college, and there she's stayed. Now Sebastian needs Natalie's help to land a major job…she'll need to pretend to be his wife as the men negotiate in Thailand. Natalie can't say no to Thailand…oh who is she kidding, she can't say no to Sebastian. But the sultry air and tropical setting affects them both, and soon they find themselves playing house for real. But all good things must come to an end...right?
IGNITE is the 2nd book in the Long Way Round Series and can be read as a standalone novella. I didn't have the fortune to read the first book in this series but that didn't hinder my enjoyment of IGNITE whatsoever. There wasn't anything overtly spectacular about this book; however it was well written and very sexy. Natalie and Sebastian had terrific chemistry and I really liked them together. The couple was believable as newlyweds, and you can't help but root for Sebastian to "come around" and finally see Natalie the way she's seen him for so long. The sex in IGNITE definitely was a danger to the temperature of my kindle, WHEW! While there was nothing overtly kinky or even super wild, the passion between Natalie and Sebastian lit up the pages. I'll be checking out other offerings in this series by Ms. Gamble!
Bottom Line: Short but steamy read that may have you daydreaming of "THAT GUY" in college and what might have been.
