Sara's Review: Ignite (Underground Encounters #3) by Lisa Carlisle

APC PUBLISHER: Lisa Carlisle RELEASED: October 16, 2017 GENRE: paranormal romance LENGTH: 264 pages FORMAT: ebook


We all have secrets. Some so closely guarded for the safety of ourselves—and others…

Lily won’t consider a permanent relationship. When she meets the singer of a rock band at an underground nightclub, she’s disarmed by his sensual voice and mischievous good looks. After an icy introduction, Lily warms up to Nico’s charms. He’s a computer geek by day, and rock star by night. How could she resist such a combination? She can’t—but must keep an emotional distance. No one would understand her furry little secret. It could be dangerous. Especially during the full moon. Yet, she might be the one in danger…

Ignite is the third installment in the Underground Encounters series, set in a club that attracts supernatural creatures. Step into Vamps, a thrilling new world of steamy paranormal romance featuring sexy shifters, thirsty vampires, wicked witches, and gorgeous gargoyles. 2.5 (Three) BOUNDLESS STARS

There were things I like about this story and then things that were just blah. I liked that the paranormal aspect of the story was the heroine. It’s rare that the female in this type of story is the one who is the shifter. I found it refreshing. What I didn’t like was that she fought her shifter nature. I liked the relationship between Lily and Nico and their chemistry was intense. But going back to her fighting her nature; she was just very wishy-washy with her feelings. It made the story start to feel repetitive, and I was getting bored. I honestly felt that there was more fluff than story and a lot was either repetitive or just not needed. Like the last two chapters weren’t required and I skimmed. But by then I was bored and ready to be done. Lily and Nico’s story started out strong for me then just fizzled. There was no culmination, no breaking point, nothing. Yawn. Even Nico discovering Lily’s secret wasn’t exciting. I think this could have been a lot better if the repetitiveness of Lily going back and forth with herself over her secret and Nico obsessing was cut down. Also, try keeping superfluous plotlines out or down to a minimum. Unless future books are planned with these characters, so much detail isn’t needed.
