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.

Lily and Nico

This is the third book in this series but you don't need to worry if you haven't read or listened to the previous books because this is a self-contained story. Having said I would urge you to listen to them all!

Lily has been keeping a secret her entire life, even her best friend has no idea because she keeps everyone at a distance. She doesn’t believe she can have more or that she could ever trust anyone.

After achieving a big promotion at work Lily allows her best friend to drag her to Vamps, an underground club, to celebrate. It's not the sort of place Lily would ever go, nor is the punk group playing on stage one she would choose to listen to but when Lily hears the singer's voice she is captivated by it.

Leggy Bones is the lead singer of the Velvet Cocks, when performing he's a punk rocker, but when not performing he's Nico a completely different person. When he finished his set at Vamps and saw Lily at the bar he tried to talk with her, but true to form she blew him off. Nico isn't the sort of guy to give up easily so when they meet again he makes another attempt to get to know Lily. Lily's drawn to Nico too but can she take a chance, is there a way for them to be together?

Nico is wonderful, he's intelligent, good looking, and sexy, the attraction is felt by both of them so Lily proposes an arrangement. Will Nico accept what Lily offers without pushing for more? Can Lily enjoy spending time with Nico without risking her heart? Could they ever have more?

The storyline is smooth flowing with great character development, I loved Nico but became a little frustrated with Lily at times although I can't tell you why - spoilers are not my thing. The book fits nicely into the series and I enjoyed getting to know all the characters. Having so enjoyed the three books I've listened to so far I can't wait for the next one.

I read this book when it was first released and enjoyed it immensely but the narration by Amber Lee Connors and Kieran Flitton took this book to a whole different level, it was superb and could not have been improved upon. They brought not only Lily and Nico to life but every character in the book.

I was given this audiobook as a gift and am voluntarily writing my review.

Steamy PNR

I loved this book. Lily and Nico were incredible characters that are easy to connect with and root for. The story line offers lots of steam, emotional turmoil, tension, drama and heart. My heart ached for Lily and Nico had me swooning. This couple's chemistry was incendiary and their scenes were so hot!! This book features dual narrators, which I always appreciate. I thought the narrators did a terrific job in bringing this book to life and in helping the listener connect to the characters. All together, this is a excellent book and a solid addition to a very enjoyable PNR series.

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.

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.
