Audiobook Review: Ignite (Underground Encounters, #3). ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Ignite by Lisa Carlisle

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

We all have secrets. Some so closely guarded for the safety of ourselves — and others…

Lily won’t consider a permanent relationship. When she meets the singer of a rock band at an underground nightclub, she’s disarmed by his sensual voice and mischievous good looks. After an icy introduction, Lily warms up to Nico’s charms.

He’s a computer geek by day, and rock star by night. How could she resist such a combination?

She can’t — but must keep an emotional distance. No one would understand her furry little secret. It could be dangerous. Especially during the full moon.

Yet, she might be the one in danger…

The heroine: Ligeia (a.k.a. Lily) – She is a cat shifter and she decided to go out with her friend Ally to do some dancing to celebrate the fact that all her hard work and effort is finally paying of in her professional life. They go to a club called Vamps without checking the schedule and there is a band instead of a D.J. so she is a bit depressed about that, but she sits down at the bar to get a drink and loosens up a bit. She finds that she is enjoying the songs.

The Hero: Nico (a.k.a. Leggy Bones) – His day job is working in software development as a computer programmer and at night he is the lead singer in a very popular band in the underground music scene called Velvet Cocks (a.k.a. VC’s). The logo is a rooster in a velvet smoking jacket. They are currently promoting their second album.

The Story: The story takes place on the night that the previous book, Fire ends. The VC’s are playing at Vamps and Tristan has a song request for Maya. Lily starts to wish she had a guy that would love her like that, but knows that she can’t trust any man with her secret. She finds that she loves the voice and power of the singer and when she sees him, she is entranced.

This was told in dual points of view via dual narration and was narrated by Amber Lee Conners and Kieran Flitton. I really like Amber Lee Conners’ voice, it is light and feminine and age appropriate for a twenty-something young professional. Kieran Flitton is not one of my favorite male narrators, but he does a good job. I just tend to like a deeper voice for a male narrator, but that is just personal preference.

I liked the fact that the band is a bit rock, a bit punk and a bit alternative and their songs are as cheeky as their stage names and band name. Lily turns into a mountain lion once a month and doesn’t seem to know anyone else like herself, so she thinks she is too strange to let anyone know about the real her aside from her mother. There are some great supporting characters and a good paranormal storyline.
