What can I say about Samantha’s book that I haven’t said already?
When I think I’ve read her best work, she goes and proves me wrong by writing another master piece.

.

Igniting Ivy was beyond magical.

.

Bass was in love with his best friend Aspen for years but never told her. She loved him too but as a friend… a best friend…. She then found the love of her life “Sawyer”. Bass was crushed and rushed into another relationship with a friend Brooke (who secretly loved him), he thought that if he married her, he would forget about Aspen however the day of his wedding, he was left at the altar.  Brooke knew she could never compete with a love so strong.

.

Bass’s ex in-laws still gift him with the honeymoon to Kauai he and Brooke were meant to go on so after 9 months he finally decides to take time off his firefighting duties to get away.  Being solo on ones honeymoon cannot be easy but what he doesn’t know is that his life is about to change yet again…

.

Ivy is broken… She is numb to everything but her dreams… Her dreams are consumed by love, loss and heartbreak. She will never be whole again. How can she ever be happy when she has lost everything? Not once but twice? In her 24 years of life, she has gone through so much pain. A pain that no one wants to endure.  Her parents send her to Kauai on vacation to heal but can she forget? Can she become what she once was? She made promises and no matter how hard those promises are, she has to keep them… Ivy is about to learn that life will throw you curve balls and only you can decide to go with it, or wither away.

.

I want to say so much more about this amazing book but less is more…

.

Style…. Samantha Christy was born with a gift and that gift is writing. Her stories are full of life, love, humour and so much more. She writes from her heart because when you read her work, you can’t help but feel the passion and the all-consuming love and desire.  Her stories are well thought through and the information about places, sport and professions are very well researched. I actually learn a great deal form her books. You cry, you laugh and you fall in love with her books. The duel P.O.V’s of her characters are perfect!

.

Thank you Samantha for yet again another fantastic story. I am so happy that I found your books. They have given me so much joy!

**SPOILER ALERT**

.

When you already love an author, you know her next book will be just as fantastic as all the others but one never expects that her next book would consume you even more….. I was so wrong….here it is… another “Master piece”

.

Denver was wrongly convicted of a crime and after he was finally found innocent, he struggles to find his place in the world. All he ever wanted to do was be a fire fighter but even that has its limits. His parents died in a horrific car accident and because of this, he tends to freeze up when he is faced with a horrific accident. How will he ever overcome his fears?

.

Denver’s company is called to an accident scene and he is trying to help a young woman who is badly injured. She is in and out of consciousness but all he can see is her eyes in a rear view mirror. Her hauntingly beautiful brown eyes.

.

Time quickly goes by and she is finally released from the confines of the mangled car and is rushed to the hospital.

.

He has to see her… he has to make sure she survived. It was touch and go and she may not make it but he needs to be with her. He later learns that she has no one coming to see her. She has a cousin and due to a rocky past, they don’t really communicate but at least she makes an appearance however cannot commit to being there for Sara every day. She has a boyfriend but he too is MIA. Against his family and friends protests, he forms a new routine. Work… Visit Sara….Go home, sleep…work, visit Sara…go home, sleep…. rinse and repeat. He does not realise it yet, but his visits is what gets Sara going.

.

As times goes by, Sara becomes aware of her surroundings but is confused….who are all these people? She somehow recognises one set of eyes but who is he and how does she know him? She tries to speak but she can’t…. Having a tube down ones throat cannot be comfortable. Frustrated she tries to grab the offending thing but a soothing voice is heard and it belongs to him. She is drawn to him… She trusts him. His eyes are so familiar and yet she doesn’t know him. Why is he here? As time goes on, she realises that having him by her side… reading, playing cards and telling stories, she feels safe… Is he her guardian angel?

.

I could carry on for hours and tell you how amazing this book is but leaving a detailed review will not do and it will spoil it for you! You HAVE to read this book.

.

Samantha has a way with words that will find its way into every part of your heart and soul. The stories come alive and you feel as if you are a part of the story itself. You and the characters become one…. This story will take your breath away from beginning to end. Its heart breaking because the pain is real….. The love is fierce… and the hope, is alive.

.

A second chance at life is not something that is often granted but when it happens, grab it with both hands. You never know when you may take your last breath. Love with everything you have….

.

Make memories as often as you can. Life is cruel at times but you can make a difference and live like there is no tomorrow.

She will find him and finally close that chapter in her life. She wants her mother to be happy. She wants a family and she will stop at nothing to get it.

There is so much more story. I could not put this book down. Samantha Christy writes with so much love. Her characters are so well thought through. Each one have their own unique qualities and you fall in love with everyone of them. The pain runs deep. You feel the loss and can’t help shed tears. The power of love so strong .... This story comes to life and you live every second, every minute of the devastation, the pain, the loss... then you feel the forgiveness, the dedication and the love. Amazing story Samantha. Take a bow, you deserve it.
