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

3.75 stars!!

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 a☆

I totally loved Ashers' story .. one kind act long ago changed his whole outlook ...

Asher is one seriously complicated character, whenever something is said or done it's a toss up between how he's going to react to it, he is quite possibly one of the most complex characters I have come across so far... And the best bit? It just makes him even more lovable! Emma is a strong female character, I honestly can't imagine many people would put up with Asher and his many walls, and seeing as Asher is so lovable this just makes me like Emma all the more! Gabe is another ch

I enjoyed the story of Asher and Emma. The story was compelling. I also enjoyed the relationships that were developed throughout the story.

Received a review copy through Tasty Book Tours in exchange for an honest review.

One of the first things I noticed when beginning IGNITING ASH was that each chapter starts with a character's name -- Asher or Emma. That typically goes on to mean the chapter will be told in that person's voice, in first person. At least, this is how it's typically done.

Not so with IGNITING ASH. While yes, that chapter is done in the voice of that particular character, it is also done in thi

Full Disclosure: I received a copy of this book as part of the Book Blast with Tasty Book Tours, in exchange for an honest review.

My Thoughts: Has someone changed your life with one small moment that was seemingly insignificant to them, but meant the world to you? That hasn’t happened to me, but I can definitely romanticize the idea. The description for Igniting Ash hooked me right away and I’m not usually much of a “romance” reader, especially if it looks like it’s heading into erot

Igniting Ash is a story about overcoming our past, accepting the scars that stay with us and realizing that a little light and love into our
darkness saves us.

The book starts with a simple kind act that Emma bestows on Asher. An act that we would learn later, changed his life. Asher’s story moved me. I could feel his suffering, his defeat, his complete distrust of people and knew that he knew every wounds by name. Where he was the dark, Emma is the light. She gives him a little ray of hope ever

Asher Harris grabbed me by the throat and heart from page one. That’s how M.A. Stacie writes her characters. You love them, let them frustrate you, and you invest your feelings in them to a degree where putting the book down is extremely difficult. Dinnertime? Not now. I’m reading.

”Igniting Ash” is a beautiful story of overcoming, the power of love, and the courage to fight for what you want. The strength of the characters is inspiring, and let’s face it -- Asher is just damn hot. Smooth, cocky

Thanks to the author for a copy to read and review.

"His hand trembled as he pushed her key into his padlock. It fit perfectly. Two halves of a whole. She stared to cry. They were the happiest tears she’d ever shed."

I'm stumped by this beautifully written story! Pivotal and inspiring just remember to lend a hand to those who need it because you'll never know when it will come back with love. Asher and Emma made a beautiful love story that tested the limits on time and trag

Sometimes, I receive a request to review a book, from an author I haven't come across, and the blurb is intriguing,so I agree. And then the book turns out to be so much better than I was expecting. This was one of those books.

From the outset really, this was a book which totally drew me in. Characters who were flawed, but likeable. A storyline which kept my attention. But the best thing about this book, for me at least, was the development of the relationship between Emma and Ash. Equally stubb

What a beautiful story of Asher and Emma. Asher had hit a rough spot in life, Emma was there for him when no one else cared.

Years later they happen to run into each other again. Asher now owns a bookstore that holds the book Emma has been looking for for her father's birthday.

The way the story was told (even at 30%) was too vague for me to enjoy. There wasn't enough details as the story progressed, like what Emma did for a living or what course did she graduated from. All it said was she a volunteer at the shelter for abused kids. Sometimes, its ok to hint at something that is going to be revealed at some point but just to insinuate at something and to let the reader assume whatever is just frustrating. This is just me wanting details to complete the pictures in my h ...more

What and emotional ride this one was but I loved every minute of it. Ash's character endeared himself to me right from the start he kept you wanting good things for him to the end. When Emma re-enters his life, it turns his world on end but in such a good way. She just needs to convince him of that. A wonderful read, you won't be disappointed.

This was a good book. The characters of Asher and Emma were very strong and they were great together. The story was emotive and hard hitting and was well written apart from quite a few grammatical errors and mistakes.

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 co
