ARC Review: IGNITE:VOLUME TWO by Angel Payne

July 31, 2018

Life is beyond different when a girl is in love with a superhero, and Emmalina Crist is basking in every passionate, supercharged second of the dream. But lightning bolts and power pulses can’t replace the trust she and Reece need to survive as a couple—a bond that’s challenged when a significant secret is withheld.

In a quest for clarity, Emma flees to New York—but Reece soon follows when learning the Consortium is ready to get back at him by targeting her. His mission to keep her safe has Emma more jumbled than ever. Is she strong enough to be with a man—a superhero—like him on a long-term basis? The ignition of their bodies is undeniable, but is the fire of their souls just as formidable? What happens when lightning flares but has no ground?

When a night of celebration goes horrifyingly awry, disaster strikes. Reece has to chase down the people who have taken his woman and ripped out his heart. But saving Emma also means reliving the hell of his past.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I am so incredibly happy that I happened upon this series because I've been enjoying it so much. Reece quickly won my heart and this girl could do with a bit more Bolt in her life!

Review of Part 4:

(full review -
Every time I start another part of the Bolt Saga, I get so anxious because I’m always waiting for the next shoe to drop. Will Reece finally get justice for what was done to him? Or will he fall victim to torture once again? It’s like watching a scary movie - hiding behind your hands but you really can’t look away.

Then again, reading this saga has been entirely too entertaining for words. It needs to be a movie so I can watch my baby Reece kick some criminal buttocks! Man, he’s so hot.

I’m so in love with Reece Richards and although he has ‘retired’ his Bolt persona, I’m constantly terrified that The Consortium will snatch him away from us. How would I live without him? How could I go on? He’s just so freaking scrumptious. I have no idea when he and Emma will finally get to ride off safely into the sunset together, but I’m loving every moment of this ride. Well, except for when Emma’s age is showing. Who tries to get closer to the love of their life by putting physical distance between them? NOBODY!! Well, except for Emma. It’s not enough that Reece has become a totally different man and has more than proven his devotion to her, nope, he’s got to suffer from separation anxiety too. WTH?! What have you done for him lately? Ooooh Emma, you better smarten up honey child. There are women like me who will scoop up his deliciousness before you can blink.

Review of Part 5:

(full review -
Reece is still in California while Emma’s in New York, trying to get her head on straight (hopefully). She still hasn’t come clean about her issues or faced them so that she and Reece can move forward. And Reece may not be happy about their separation, but he’s willing to give his woman what she wants to make her happy. That is until he gets some valuable intel about The Consortium’s plans from his ex-girlfriend/pseudo-enemy/double agent, Angelique. Emma’s in danger and all of Reece’s good intentions are out the door. He’s got to get to NY and he’s got to get there NOW. No way is he going to let anything happen to his bunny. Nuh uh, not his precious velvet.

Obviously he goes to save the day. How could he not? He’s Bolt! But there’s far more than meets the eye when it comes to The Consortium and their motives. One cannot predict what they’ll do next. Is Reece prepared to do whatever it takes to ensure Emma’s safety? And will Emma realize that her ‘issues’ are really dumb and that they have nothing to do with what she has with Reece? Will she finally accept that what she and Reece share is too rare to be treated lightly? These two continue to make my day and even while I’m anxious about what happens next, they light up the page with their antics, their banter, and their steam.

These dang cliffys are driving me nuts! I cannot wait to get my hands on the next book in the series. I have no clue who will be safe, if I’ll finally learn of The Consortium’s agenda, if I’ll get to see more of delicious Reece’s delicious friend, ‘Sally’, if Emma will grow up, if anything! Again, you need to read this series. If you like insanely hot romance stories, then this should definitely be on your radar!

Review of Part 6:

(full review -
As I’ve progressed through this series, I’ve been begging for just one thing. It wasn’t more of Reece’s dirty talk, although that was appealing enough for a book of its own. And it wasn’t even more action because the author does a fantastic job of juggling the action, suspense, romance and eroticism. Nope, what I was hungry for was a change in Emma. Not the change I’ve seen so far, her lapsing into a ‘damsel who refuses to be a damsel’ role. Or her delusions of grandeur when it comes to her capabilities against forces far stronger and devious than she could ever dream to be. I was waiting for her to wake the heck up and realize her role.

I know that makes some feminists get hot under the collar. But hey, I’m a feminist too, I’m just not a radical one. I’m a realist. And if my boyfriend had super powers and was going against the people who gave him those powers, I wouldn’t be stamping my feet, throwing tantrums because he wasn’t treating me as an equal. I would realize my limitations and support him in the best ways that I could. KNOWING MY LIMITATIONS!

Okay, so Emma finally had a moment of clarity and I hope this clarity carries her through for the rest of the series. Gosh, sometimes I want her to count her blessings. Reece, the superhero hottie who could have any woman he wants, wants her. He wants to give her anything her heart desires and his whole purpose in life now includes doing whatever it takes to make her happy. Be blessed, hug yourself, and hush.

Ah Reece… you were so delicious once again. I can’t get enough of your fine self. Until I see you again, be safe hot stuff!
