Another hot one

I loved this story. Who would think an IT geek as a hot rocker dude? She's a bit of a geek herself and not a club-hopping-hottie. The hottie fits. She's a loner because she has a big secret. One she can't share. She doesn't even understand it herself. Something about Lily draws Nico. He's been known to take advantage of his rockstar chick magnetism, yet it has lost its shine until Lily. Just his luck, she's not interested. Or is she?

While she gave him a cold shoulder, she can't stop thinking about him. Then they meet again. This time ... it's cute so you need to read about it. Let's just say that cold shoulder is gonna heat up just fine.

Lily agrees to a sex-only meeting only with no future ahead for them. He'll take what he can get, hoping to change her mind. Will he?

Both characters are interesting and not your typical PNR relationship. I thoroughly enjoyed their romp, was just as frustrated as Nico with her secret. Vamp has another great couple to bring together.

You'll need a fan and iced drink for this one. A strong recommendation from me. The narration was a pleasure to listen to, accents and both male and female narrators.

Hot, hot, hot!

I enjoyed listening to this book. Lily and Nico were very entertaining. Listening to the excellent narrators bring the story to life was such a pleasure. This was one of my first listens by Ms. Carlisle and won’t be my last!! This is one you don’t want to miss listening to!

Ignite - it's hot

I really enjoyed this story - the characters were great, A Shifter and a Nerd, no a Rock Star. I loved their chemistry. The narration was good and enjoyable. The paranormal aspects fit into the story really perfectly. Lily really grew and came into her own, she doesn't have to hide. Recommended story. I received a free copy for an honest review.

It was great

I get emails sometimes for free audiobooks, if they look interesting and there are some still available i get them. I'm really glad I did. Nico and Lily are both excellent characters. There's not a lot of background information on Nico, just generalizations, but there doesn't need to be. Lily however is a whole different story. She doesn't know anything about herself other than she turns into a mountain lion on the full moon. Because of that she does everything she can to avoid anything but sexual relationships. This is about Lily discovering who she is and being brave enough to open her heart to someone. Nico, is there to be pushy and basically make her face herself if she wants to be able to do that. However, Nico doesn't understand why she's hiding something from him and gets a big furry surprise when he finds out. I loved it!

The narrator's did an excellent job. I prefer male and female individuals and that is what we have here. They enunciated everything and it was clear what they were saying and the energy was where it needed to be in the book.

Truly original!

Lily doesn't go out much at night, but her best friend, Ally, convinces her to celebrate her promotion with a night at Vamps, an underground nightclub with great music. She's glad she did, once she takes a glance at the gorgeous and sexy lead singer. Leggy (Nico) Bones' claim to fame it that he's an IT guy by day and a rock star by night with class and substance. Ally senses something different in him, not just his beautiful face but the poetic way he speaks. Of course, that British accent doesn't hurt, either. Lily intrigues him, with her sexy dress, tawny hair and eyes. When he overhears Ally say that she's there celebrating her new promotion, he buys her champagne. He really wants to know her name, but she's reluctant to give him her real name and settles on Cara. Nico wants to know why she's so secretive, but he wants to see her enough that he doesn't question her. Finally, she lowers her defenses and lets him in. She tells him that she doesn't want a relationship, she can only be a lover. She's harboring a secret that has kept her from ever allowing a man completely into her life. For the time being, Nico is fine with it. But his heart wants more. He won't accept being only friends with benefits. In her heart, Lily feels the same but she can't let him know what happens to her each month. Nico is in agony, not having Lily in his life, and begs her to tell him her secret. It doesn't go well and he flees, causing Lily to look deep inside and face her fears. This is a captivating and passionate story with beautifully drawn characters and authentic locations that lend a sense of charm. A truly original love story! 
I listened on audible and was immediately immersed in the action and the feel of the story with the smooth, well-modulated voices of Amber Lee Connors and Kieran Flinton

A delight to listen to! Loved the accent!

This is what I’m talking about! Lisa Carlisle hit this one out of the park! I loved this! There was more emotion and character depth in this one. The story is a little more intricate as well.

First off I loved these two characters! That band! Great band name! Also love those character names! The double life of IT worker and rock and roller is so far apart but this author did it with style! Nico is such a doll! So kind, considerate and sexy I loved his character from the beginning.

Lily is in a class all her own. A shifter that has problems. I loved her background story. She became a strong woman/shifter by the end. She amazed me!

I listened to this on Audio. Kieran Flitton and Amber Lee Connors narrated this delightfully exciting story. They did a great job. Loved the accent Kieran did for Nico!
I look forward to Vamp!

Rockstar Nerd

You can't get a much better combination than a computer genius by day and a rockstar by night. At least that's what Lily discovers when she meets Nico. As much as she's drawn and attracted to Nico, she's harboring a secret that has her not looking for a relationship. But Nico isn't about to give up when he finds the perfect woman for him. Their chemistry is sizzling but the road to their HEA is a bumpy ride.
The narrators really brought the characters and story to life. The narration flowed well and was great to listen to, especially Nico's delicious accent.

Steamy

Ignite, the third book in the Underground Encounters series, is a steamy paranormal romance. The storyline captures the attention, and the characters are charming. The focus in the story is on Lily and Nico. Their attraction is instantaneous with a charged chemistry. However, Lily won't play easy and makes Nico work for it. There is a bit of friction and drama in their relationship, mainly due to Lily not wanting to surrender her secrets.

The narration by Amber Lee Connors and Kieran Flitton is excellent. They both do a splendid job with the characters' voices, engrossing the listeners. I was given a free copy of this audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

Ignited

Ignite was my first encounter with Lisa Carlisle's writing and the Underground Encounters series. Albeit the book being the third in line I read it easily as a standalone. The plot and the characters were well written and interesting. I found myself captivated by the story and keep listening.

I think I found two more favorite narrators to search for in the future. Both Amber Lee Connors and Kieran Flitton did a fantastic job with this narration. I loved their voices and their clear speech. Kudos for the quality too.

Fan-freaking-tastic!

This is a well written and narrated story. This is a fascinating storyline. It has action, adventure, suspense, intrigue, mystery and romance. I had a hard time putting this book down. I wanted to listen to the story with stopping.
The narrator’s do a fabulous job with the characters and voices of each character which makes it easy to distinguish between the characters and voices of each character. I can’t get enough. I love listening to these two narrator’s. I can’t wait for the next book.
I definitely recommend this book.

This story will ignite you

This story will rock your ears . Lisa Carlisle wrote a story full of action, mystery the hero has 2 sides to his person . There are many layers. This is a mixed shifter story .
Hero is Nico. A computer geek by day and a hot rocker by night. Heroine is Lily.
The story takes place in a small town in Massachusetts. The club is called Vamps. Lily doesn’t want to be at the bar but she went with her friend anyway, .... but once she hears Nico aka Leggy sing she can’t stay away . One thing leafs to another and the attraction is hot. Lilly has to tell him that things can only be temporary. Nico is wondering why and what is Lily hiding .

The performance of Amber Lee Connors, Kieran Flitton was good. It was the first time I heard them. Their voice is great

A great, fun read/listen

Another enjoyable read/listen with great narration. The characters, whilst being paranormal, are relatable and each has their own angst to deal with. I found myself fully engrossed in their dilemmas and wanting to know what's going to happen next, whilst wishing I could help them out.

Whilst this is the third book in the Underground Encounters series, each book stands alone and can be enjoyed on its own as, whilst set in the same 'area' (the only location of commonality being Vamps, an underground goth club), the characters are only loosely known to each other, if at all. As such it makes it very easy to pick up any one of the books, at any time, and enjoy it without feeling your missing an overall storyline, which makes them great for when you've got a long journey or some boring housework to get done!

Rocked her world

Attraction, connection, but she is holding back a secret she knows will end them if revealed. To date my favorite in the Underground Encounters series.
Amber Lee & Kieran did a wonderful job narrating this couple that meet at Vamp’s where not everyone is who the seem.
