Review- Igniting Ash by M.A. Stacie

Title:  Igniting Ash
Author:  M.A. Stacie
Publication Date:  August 4th 2015 

Plot: "When the embers of pain transform into passion."

After a terrible start in life, Asher Harris picks himself up and manages to carve out a fairly decent future. Content with living alone in his bookshop, he shies away from relationships and keeps trust to a minimum. 
Emma Carnes hasn’t seen Asher in years, though she’s never forgotten him. Their one interaction as teenagers became pivotal to them both. It gave her a career.
It saved his life.
Taking small steps, hoping to get him to open up, Emma finds Asher’s emotional walls hard to climb. He is far from receptive to her gentle persuasion, even when she seeks his help with a wounded child from the shelter she works in. 
Emma sees the parallels between him and Asher, and tries to replicate the past. However, as she takes tentative steps with both of them, someone is taking steps toward her. Watching her for a pattern. Watching her to find out what she knows.
They each battle to stay together to keep what they’ve fought so hard to gain, will a cruel twist of fate finally show Asher what he could lose? Could it be too late to save the one person in life he trusts?

 My Review 

☆ I received an ARC via StarAngels Reviews & Promo Stars Services in exchange for an honest review. Thank you!! ☆

A childhood connection transcending to the forefront many years later.

I've always loved and admired these types of reads and will without fail, be lining up for another young to adult lovers romance.

While I did like the read in general, one thing that drives me up the wall is reading books in third person. It is a tactful ploy I feel is best used in narrating events while not divulging characters' guts and feelings.

Otherwise, I enjoyed Asher and Emma's story immensely. For me, I think in everyday life, all it takes is for one simple moment to change your life. One simple act, or for this case, one act of kindness to impede your future.

Asher and Emma's rapport was like none other. They saw each other. They got each other and accepted the other for what they were. Not to mention, they (particularly, Emma) supported the other's cause.

That's not saying that each had their own demons and issues to hammer through, cause they did. Especially, Asher, Mr. “I have trust issues a mile and a half long.”

I really enjoyed this, in a sense, “coming of age,” story as it truly was one of letting go of your past and making a new start...and falling in love.

 About the Author 


M. A. Stacie is never without a book or her eReader. A voracious reader, with a love of sexy, yet angst ridden novels, she loves getting lost in new worlds. Her need to write did not grip her until after her second son was born, when her previous rambles became fully fledged stories.

She describes herself as one huge contradiction, and though not the most conventional of hobbies, she counts getting new tattoos as one of hers. Along with running, knitting, and listening to loud music. However, she is yet to work out how to do them all at the same time.

M. A. Stacie lives in the UK with her husband and three sons.
