Why I Read It
I loved Rebecca Yarros’ Flight and Glory Series so when I found out she had another series in the works. Her writing is superb.
What I Rated It
What It’s About
In Legacy, Colorado, I buried my father alongside his elite Hotshot team.
Ten years later, I’ve followed in his footsteps—fighting fires in the mountains of Alaska with my brother.
Amid the flames, nothing ignites me like Avery Claire.
She’s stubborn, strong, sexy as hell, and my best friend.
She also has no idea that I’m in love with her.
But Colorado is calling me home, needing every Legacy-born firefighter to successfully rebuild our fathers’ team.
One night will change everything between us,
But she’s tied to Alaska and my future is in Colorado.
Now I’m torn between what my honor demands,
And what my heart can’t live without.
“There was a steel in this generation, a tenacity that I felt simply by looking at them.”
I am not one to use quotes, like EVER, in my reviews but as soon I read this quote I felt like the entire reason and message of this series was handed to me in just one simple sentence. This book has only intensified my love of Rebecca Yarros and this series. Who would have thought that firemen, okay HOTSHOTS to be precise, could have ever held a candle to my military men? This book continued to show the honor, determination, tenacity, and love for their town all these men and women have. Nothing makes me feel more satisfied than an author portraying my generation as loyal and hardworking people.
River Maldonado is pretty much perfection and I can see many ladies swooning over him just like I did (although for some reason I feel like I am holding out for Knox or maybe Ryder to be my favorite Legacy Man). Who doesn’t love someone continuing a tradition across a generation? River was intriguing because he was by no stretch a bad boy, but he wasn’t this squeaky clean guy either. He was just all male and in love with his best friend.
Avery Claire is everything you want in a female main character. Tough and independent. She is a hard worker between her multiple jobs and taking care of her teenage sister. She also takes care of her addict father which causes me to give her another nod of approval. Her main flaw being that she probably cares too much makes the story line a perfect five.
This book gave me some tearjerker moments. It seems there will always be some nostalgia with mentions of the Legacy Hotshot fathers and mother and I feel like the series wouldn’t be complete without. It always leaves me filled with hope. The whole premise of this series, reviving something for a town they all loved, is nothing short of beautiful and Ignite just adds to it.
