There were two things Emmit Lewis loved.
Racing cars and Adaline Morgan.
Time was stolen from the two young lovers and Emmit vowed never again would he allow anything to come between the two of them.
Blurred lines both on and off the track have Emmit being tested beyond his limits. Will he reach the checkered flag and ignite Adaline’s heart, or will he be black-flagged and lose everything he has ever dreamed of?
Opening the door, I smiled. Adaline was standing there with an umbrella over her head as the rain came down steadily. “Hey. I had to ask which one was your bus. You’ve gotten a different one.”
My smile faded some as I nodded. “Yeah, well a lot of things are different now.”
Adaline’s face fell as she asked, “May I come in?”
“Um, yeah but Robert’s here and—”
Robert pushed past me and waved to Adaline. “Hey, Adaline! Great seeing you again. I’m headed back to the hauler, Emmit. See ya later.”
Slowly shaking my head, I shot daggers at my so-called best friend.
Lola barked and Adaline let out a gasp. “Oh, my gosh. There’s a dog!”
“Always were observant, Adaline.”
Adaline shot me a dirty look as she slowly nodded. “Well anyway, I’m sorry Robert ran off. I’ll let him know he can come back.”
Adaline turned and walked off as I squeezed my eyes shut and cursed under my breath. “Fuck!” I hissed through my teeth. Stepping out into the rain, I called for her. “Adaline, wait. I’m sorry, if you want to come in, you’re more than welcome to.”
Turning around slowly, Adaline raised an eyebrow. “Anyone else in there?”
I didn’t even care I was getting wet. “Like who?” I asked with a confused look.
With a shrug, Adaline walked back over to me and started up the steps as I stepped back in and told Lola to sit. Adaline stepped into my bus and looked around as her eyes widened in surprise as she glanced back toward the bedroom. “Oh, I don’t know, Cookie maybe?”
Holy living hell. Adaline was jealous.

No matter whether she is writing about a swoony cowboy or fast talking NASCAR driver, Kelly Elliott knows how to write about LOVE.
Ignite is the first book in a new series by Kelly Elliott and it was just as fabulous as her Wanted Series. I love reading anything by Kelly because her books just sweep me away. She writes such swoony love stories, you can’t help but fall in love with her characters and stories.
What I loved about this book was that she went outside of her norm and entered the world of race car driving. I haven’t read too many books about NASCAR so that piqued my interest right away, but then knowing Kelly wrote it, I knew I HAD to read this book. I am so glad I did, because what we got is the best of Kelly Elliott. This book was told in Dual POV. It’s a second chance romance book with the hint of suspense. The book was truly about the love story between Emmitt and Adaline, but she added some suspense to the storyline to keep you turning the pages. She was even able to shock me at the end of the book. I totally didn’t see it coming.
This is the love story of Emmitt and Adaline. Emmitt and Adaline have been friends since elementary school and then moved into a relationship as they grew older. At age 19 Emmitt was starting to make a name for himself in the NASCAR world, but Adaline wanted to follow her own dreams. She has wanted to be a nurse and go to school for that. So deciding to follow her dreams she decides to leave Emmitt and go to school. Now it’s 3 years later and she is ready to go back to Emmitt. Although Emmitt might not have the same feelings.
Adaline’s return into Emmitt’s life was not a smooth one. Even though Emmitt has loved Addie for the past three years he is having trouble letting go of the hurt. I enjoyed watching these two work through everything. They do have their ups and downs and Addie has some trust issues, but over all they function together fairly well. Just like her cowboys, Emmitt the NASCAR driver was great!!! Even though in the beginning he was a player, I fell in love with him as the story progressed. What I loved about both these characters was that they loved with their whole heart and went after what they wanted!!!
As always Kelly introduced us to some wonderful secondary characters, and she also gave us those characters we love to hate. It wouldn’t be a Kelly Elliott book without some of the drama she cooks up. I am looking forward to reading Malcolm’s book…..that is going to be an interesting story 😉
So if you love Kelly Elliott or are looking for a great second chance love story built around the world of NASCAR, then you aren’t going to want to miss this book!!!
Kelly Elliott is married to a wonderful Texas cowboy who has a knack for making her laugh almost daily and supports her crazy ideas and dreams for some unknown reason…he claims it’s because he loves her!
She’s also a mom to an amazing daughter who is constantly asking for something to eat while her fingers move like mad on her cell phone sending out what is sure to be another very important text message.
In her spare time she loves to sit in her small corner overlooking the Texas hill country and write.
One of her favorite things to do is go for hikes around her property with Gus….her chocolate lab and the other man in her life, and Rose, her golden retriever. When Kelly is not outside helping the hubby haul brush, move rocks or whatever fun chore he has in store for her that day, you’ll find her inside reading, writing or watching HGTV.
