Release Blitz & Review: Ignite by Melanie Harlow


“This is the funniest setup I’ve read all year! You’ll be cheering for Winnie and Dex!”
—Sarina Bowen, USA Today bestselling author

Ignite, an all-new sexy, grumpy single dad meets the sunshine girl next door romantic comedy from USA Today and #1 Amazon bestselling author Melanie Harlow, is now live!


My new neighbor is a firefighter—and a scorching hot single dad—but I swear I didn’t set off that smoke alarm on purpose.

(And I was beyond mortified when he rushed in and saw me naked.)

Nothing happened, of course—because I, Winnie MacAllister, romance junkie and owner of a constantly broken heart, have sworn off men for one solid year.

Even protective men with chiseled jaws, bulging biceps, and deep brown eyes that make my breath come faster. Even former SEALs with broad chests and strong hands that make my skin sizzle. Even gorgeous, grumpy guys who have their hands full raising two adorable little girls and claim they don’t believe in love.

Until Dex kisses me one night, and I drop all my defenses.

(Also my underwear.)

He says he’s not gentle, and he’s right. He says I should take the dream job I’m offered in another state, and he’s right. He says he’s too old for me and could never be the man I deserve.

He’s wrong.

Dex and I might be twelve years apart, but the fire between us is the kind that will never burn out.

How can I convince him to give happily-ever-after with me a chance?

Fall in love with Winnie and Dex for ZERO PENNIES in Kindle Unlimited today!

Audio Coming Soon, narrated by Stephen Dexter & Kirsten Leigh


4.5 stars for Ignite! 

I was so excited to go back to Cloverleigh Farms and Ignite didn’t disappoint. We meet the grumpy firefighter, Dex Matthews. He’s 34 and an ex SEAL and also a single dad of two girls…. Cue the swoon, right? 

Winnie is 22 years old and has always been addicted to love. She loves the idea of it and falls in love super fast. She just had a failed engagement so she’s sworn off men and falling in love for the foreseeable future thanks to a bet with her friend. 

Dex and Winnie meet when Dex moves next-door to Winnie and their attraction is instant. Although they both fight it at the start, it’s undeniable and before they know it, they can’t resist each other anymore. 

This is definitely in the grumpy/sunshine category which is one of my all time fave tropes. If you’ve read the rest of the Cloverleigh books then you’ll be able to see the parallels of Ignite and book number one, Irresistible, which is the book about Winnie’s parents…. I loved this so much and I loved the way the book mentioned them with humour surrounding it. 

This was a super cute read with the spice thrown in. I really liked the way Winnie and Dex came together and Dex’s girls are hilarious and Dex is such a great dad. This book is pretty love angst, which I loved. I just needed a cute small town romance book and this hit the spot. 

Winnie and Dex’s chemistry was great and I loved reading their story and seeing how they found a place in each others world. 

If you’re looking for a cute grumpy/sunshine romance, then this one is for you!
