IGNITE – Release Day – Nov 17, 2015
There were two things Emmit Lewis loved.
Racing cars and Adaline Morgan.
Time was stolen from the two young lovers and Emmit vowed never again would he allow anything to come between the two of them.
Blurred lines both on and off the track have Emmit being tested beyond his limits. Will he reach the checkered flag and ignite Adaline’s heart, or will he be black-flagged and lose everything he has ever dreamed of?
Opening the door, I smiled. Adaline was standing there with an umbrella over her head as the rain came down steadily. “Hey. I had to ask which one was your bus. You’ve gotten a different one.”
My smile faded some as I nodded. “Yeah, well a lot of things are different now.”
Adaline’s face fell as she asked, “May I come in?”
“Um, yeah but Robert’s here and—”
Robert pushed past me and waved to Adaline. “Hey, Adaline! Great seeing you again. I’m headed back to the hauler, Emmit. See ya later.”
Slowly shaking my head, I shot daggers at my so-called best friend.
Lola barked and Adaline let out a gasp. “Oh, my gosh. There’s a dog!”
“Always were observant, Adaline.”
Adaline shot me a dirty look as she slowly nodded. “Well anyway, I’m sorry Robert ran off. I’ll let him know he can come back.”
Adaline turned and walked off as I squeezed my eyes shut and cursed under my breath. “Fuck!” I hissed through my teeth. Stepping out into the rain, I called for her. “Adaline, wait. I’m sorry, if you want to come in, you’re more than welcome to.”
Turning around slowly, Adaline raised an eyebrow. “Anyone else in there?”
I didn’t even care I was getting wet. “Like who?” I asked with a confused look.
With a shrug, Adaline walked back over to me and started up the steps as I stepped back in and told Lola to sit. Adaline stepped into my bus and looked around as her eyes widened in surprise as she glanced back toward the bedroom. “Oh, I don’t know, Cookie maybe?”
Holy living hell. Adaline was jealous.
I absolutely love everything that Kelly Elliott. Ignite is the first book in a new series from Kelly and I can’t wait for more. We are so used to getting sexy cowboys from Kelly so it was a nice change to read about some sexy race car drivers.
Emmitt Lewis is on the fast track to becoming the number one race car driver in the world and the only other thing he wants in life is for Adaline to be by his side as his wife. He assumes that she will follow him around the world so he can chase his dream but he has never asked her what she wants to do with her own life. He is completely heartbroken when he asks her a life changing question and doesn’t get the response he was hoping for. Adaline has her own goals and dreams in life and they don’t include following Emmitt around at this time in her life. As hard as it was to leave him she knows it is the best decision for her at this time in her life. They go on to chase their dreams separately but fate has a funny way of bringing people back together. After three years apart they finally come face to face and old feelings start to resurface. Will these two be able to find a way to make things work or will their chosen career paths continue to keep them apart?
“The rush I’ve always longed for and got from racing, is nothing compared to the rush I get when we make love. Or when you tell me you love me. You. Are. My. Life.”
I loved the deep connection between Emmitt and Adaline. This is a book about finding your one true love and doing whatever it takes to keep them. The secondary characters added lots of depth to the storyline. Kelly has a way of sucking you in from the very beginning and keeping you hooked until the very end. She has a beautiful way with words and her books continue to get better and better. I can’t wait for the next book in this new series from Kelly Elliott.
Kelly Elliott is married to a wonderful Texas cowboy who has a knack for making her laugh almost daily and supports her crazy ideas and dreams for some unknown reason…he claims it’s because he loves her!
She’s also a mom to an amazing daughter who is constantly asking for something to eat while her fingers move like mad on her cell phone sending out what is sure to be another very important text message.
In her spare time she loves to sit in her small corner overlooking the Texas hill country and write.
One of her favorite things to do is go for hikes around her property with Gus….her chocolate lab and the other man in her life, and Rose, her golden retriever. When Kelly is not outside helping the hubby haul brush, move rocks or whatever fun chore he has in store for her that day, you’ll find her inside reading, writing or watching HGTV.
