One night changed an entire town.

One girl changed my entire life.

After she left without saying goodbye, I never expected to see her again.
The fire that changed Hawk Valley was my first night on the job. She was my first save as a firefighter. But she wasn’t the first to walk out of my life without looking back.

She was just another number on that list.

"Lick. Sip. Suck. Just like a shot of tequila."

I was so excited to jump into this book after meeting Ridge and Zoe in EMBER, so I'm excited to say that Emma Renshaw did not leave me hanging. I was a little gun-shy because I don't like a lot of 'out there' drama in my books - a lot of romantic suspense has this in it, but this one, while there was some drama, it fit the storyline really well. This was an easy, smile-inducing, heartwarming read that certainly hit all the bu

Two lonely souls from broken homes ignite the pages of this beautiful book that will touch your heart. 

A town fire changed the lives of many people forever in Hawk Valley, but in Ignite we are focused on Zoe Boswell, a girl who feels responsible for multiple deaths that followed when a towering bonfire crashed to the ground after she threw in a family portrait and a young firefighter, Ridge, who was there that fateful night and pulled his very first rescue from the wreckage, a beautiful girl nam

Oh my stars. Where do I begin with this one. As we all know from the backstory from the previous book Ember, is that it is pure heartache and pain that these people relive. Zoe is no different. My heart ached for the pain that she carried since that horrible night. Everything that she took into herself when this all happened just broke me. Then you have Ridge. That connection between these two as instant right from the start. How he was there for her, how he just wanted to make her smile. Even ...more

Emma Renshaw does not disappoint!!!

It’s incredible how she manages to get you addicted of her books...
Talk about FIRE... this book was brilliant. 🔥🔥🔥🔥

The prologue is one of my favorites, the way she delivers different POVs about the same night... Since book one, the intrigue of the bonfire has been killing me and we get to find the missing parts on Ignite, which I cannot recommend enough ♥️♥️♥️♥️
I absolutely loved and enjoyed this story so much. Every scene between Ridge and Zoe is pure fire!

I love this series! This book was so entertaining and grabbed me in right away. I really love Ridge. Emma Renshaw is a master at a hero. I love how Zoe and Ridge get to know one another and allow themselves to grow. There were a few moments I did get a tad worried, but trusting Emma as I do, I knew they would work out beautifully and they did. I highly recommend all of her books!

Not as good as the first one but still good.

I don’t consider this a 2nd chance, they met when he rescued her from a bonfire 11 years before. They both developed a crush but nothing happened. Both were with OP during those 11 years. He was engaged and the ex wanted him back.

I loved this book so much, which is no surprise since I love Emma Renshaw. Zoe and Ridge were amazing together. This book had so much heartache but it was totally worth it in the end.

“When you grow up with nothing, it’s easy to recognize a treasure. I know how rare you are, clover. You’re extraordinary. And you’re mine.”

First, Emma Renshaw introduced us to Hawk Valley in her first book of the Burn series, Ember. This reader fell hard for the fraught, but steamy journey of Griffin and Delilah. From that book, I knew Renshaw had hooked me into her Burn series. When Ignite was announced, I couldn’t get to the ARC sign-up (I read them for an honest r

I knew reading this book was going to be good and I wasn’t left wanting anything. This book took twists and turns that I didn’t see happening but I am so thankful that those twists happened because it was exactly what I needed. I had to emotionally recover for a day (in a good way) before I could even process in words what I thought of this book. So here goes:
If you love a good paced sensual love story, this book is for you. Truth be told, I am an avid reader of Emma’s books. Sh

Are you sitting down? I have a shocking admission to make. This is my first book by this author, and clearly, I’ve been living under a rock. How did I not find her before now? And holy wow, my life will never be the same, now that I’ve found this talented lady's words and added her to my list of must-reads!

Eleven years ago, Zoe Boswell had her whole life ahead of her until one fateful night that she lost three close friends when their graduation bonfire celebration went terribly wrong. Zoe has b

A fire on my Kindle

Another fantastic read from a talented author. Emma Renshaw never fails to deliver a steamy story with lots of heart and a solid dose of suspense.

The night of the fire ten years ago changed the survivors' lives forever, and both Ridge and Zoe are no exception. Zoe was firefighter Ridge’s first fire and rescue, which resulted in a forever bond between them. Zoe on the other hand feels extreme guilt not only for surviving but also believing that she caused the graduation night

Obsessed with this new series from Emma! The night of the fire shaped the survivors lives, and both Ridge and Zoe are no exception. Zoe was Ridge’s first fire and first save, and that caused a special bond between them. Zoe on the other hand felt extreme guilt not only for surviving but also for feeling that she caused the fire itself. Once she was recovered enough, she disappeared without telling anyone she was leaving, and left Ridge at a loss. Years later, after the death of her aunt/guardian ...more

I fell in love with the small town of Hawk Valley in Ember, and after Ignite I never want to leave. The tragic fire so many years ago shaped this small town. It left people running to forget, some were left former shells of themselves and then some were more determined to live their best lives for the friends and love ones they lost.

Emma truly is at the very top of her game! Zoe and Ridge are haunted by the past, but there connection never wavered. They have an unbreakable bond from that night

The amazing Emma Renshaw seriously knocked Ignite out of the park for me, and I simply couldn't get enough! Poor Zoe, first her parents dropped her off with her aunt (who she really loved a lot) without paying anymore attention to her, and then, a bonfire got out of control, killing some of her friends, and she felt 100% responsible for it. So, she & her aunt left without looking back. Now some year later, her aunt has passed away, and she is honoring her last wishes by going home again temporar ...more

I loved going back to the Burn series and getting lost in Zoe and Ridge’s story in Ignite. Though technically this could be read as a standalone, I loved the first book, Ember, and highly recommend it. Zoe’s life was changed when a fire after her High School graduation caused so much damage. She left town and never intended to be back. And yet years later she is back, but she did not intend to stay long. When she and Ridge meet again, he is drawn to her. But suddenly things are happenin

What an absolutely phenomenal story!! Zoe is back in town after all of these years to honor her aunt's last wishes. Being back home is bittersweet but she has immense guilt after what had happened so many years ago and how the fire changed everyone lives especially her own. Ridge has always had feelings for Zoe so when he sees her back in town, he seizes the chance to spend some time with her and reconnecting. The connection and the intense chemistry they shared a lifetime ago is still there and ...more

Zoe and Ridge, like all other couples in this author’s books, proved to me that Emma Renshaw DEFINITELY knows how to tell an enthralling story. Zoe is running from the guilt of her past and has yet to really live, while Ridge has spent a decade wondering about the girl who disappeared on him. When Zoe’s life comes full circle and she’s forced to return home to fulfill a promise, Ridge lays eyes on his lost girl and vows to make her want to stay this time. They have one heck of a road full of bum ...more

This book did not disappoint!!

After reading book one (Ember) I was wanting to know more about the Fire and this book brought so much to light.

Ridge and Zoe's lives changed that night as did many. However, the pull between them was not something either of them was expecting.

Zoe's life was turned upside down that night when everything went horrible wrong. With the help of someone very close to her she runs from it all. After 11 years she finally comes back to Hawk Valley. However, she was expecti

🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥 This book is amazingly hot and the characters will make you fall in love with them Emma Renshaw writes beautiful words. You can feel the emotion that was put into this book. Every book she writes just keeps getting better.

This book is a small town romance. Where one night will change everything.

“Two kids from broken homes who’d been cast aside too often.” one of my favorite lines.

Ridge and Zoe come from two different worlds yet they both lost their parents in a different way.

This book…WOW.

IGNITE is another phenomenally deep, emotionally-filled second chance romance by the wonderful author Emma Renshaw. This book is the second book in the Burn series (book one is EMBER…absolute MUST READ!) and follows the tragic graduation night bonfire. This is an intense read with a fantastic storyline filled with mystery, romance, small town drama, bullying, forgiveness, moving on, and family. The characters in this book are all so incredible! Ridge…geez! New BBF??? Possibly!

Emma Renshaw just hooked me!

I've done it again. I've found another author that I adore and I can't wait to go back and read her previous works. I'm not sure how I've never read Emma before because Ignite was stunning! The best part, I get to go back and read the first book in the series.

Zoe and Ridge, be still my beating heart. Ignite is a very delicate story that's full of lots of emotions and heartache. But it's soooo dang good. If you like stories about heartbroken pasts and dealing with the

This story blew me away! Not that I was surprised... I love All things Emma Renshaw!

The guilt Zoe carries completely broke my heart. The guilt drove her away from the town she grew up in but the love for her aunt brought her back! I loved seeing her get through that with her friends and Ridge!

Ridge is just Everything! The way he protects is fierce and that is one of my favorite traits in a hero! I loved his background and how it molded him into who he is! The way he is with

Another amazing story in this series full of heartache, love, steam, and passion. I couldn’t put it down but at the same tome I didn’t want it to end. My heart ached for Zoe because she carried around so much guilt that was not her fault at all but she couldn’t seem to accept that so she felt undeserving of ever staying or going back to her hometown. Yet she finds herself going back years later to fulfill a promise she made to her that raised her and she runs into Ridge the firefighter that save ...more

Ignite was the first book I have read by Emma Renshaw. The blurb was very intriguing so I was excited to get started. Ignite is a small town romance with a bit of suspense thrown in. Ridge is on his first day as a firefighter when he saves Zoe’s life. He checks on her everyday for two weeks until she leaves town unexpectedly. Zoe has just graduated now high school when the fire that changes her life breaks out. She feels immense guilt and remorse so she moves away for several years. When she ret ...more

Ignite is book 2 in the Burn series by Emma Renshaw but can be read as a standalone.

I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book. It takes you an emotional journey with Zoe and Ridge being the main starring characters.

Zoe's high school journey ended in a tragedy that has plagued her and caused her to run from the town that she loved and the friends that she loved. Now that the one remaining person who loved her unconditionally has passed away, she finds herself returning to Hawk Valley to fulfil her

I was sucked into Ignite the moment it started. I could not put this one down. Ignite is a can you come home again, can you move on from the past and finding where you belong story. You get passion, danger and answers that two lost souls and a brokenhearted town is searching for. If you have read Ember you have a little more insight going in to what Zoe has been going through. My heart ached for Zoe and the thought of the tragedy of graduation. Zoe is so lost and the last thing she expected was ...more

A tragedy that affected so many lives, a broken girl wracked with guilt and a lonely man determined to protect those he loves.
I adored Zoe and Ridge’s story. As usual Ms Renshaw has brought us a lovely family of friends who have bonded through the pain and suffering of one awful event in their teens. Zoe and Ridge have both suffered neglect and abandonment in their early years and all they crave is to belong and be loved unconditionally.
Ridge is a true protector, a dedicated firefighter and loya
