Ignite Me: Review

Use Grammarly to check for plagiarism because, while mispelling if forgivable, plagiarism is not.

Juliette now knows she may be the only one who can stop the Reestablishment. But to take them down, she'll need the help of the one person she never thought she could trust: Warner. And as they work together, Juliette will discover that everything she thought she knew - about Warner, her abilities, and even Adam - was wrong.
So many feels. Just.

Despite the feelings though, this book was far from perfect. It was actually probably the farthest from perfection out of the whole series(and that's saying a lot). There were so many plot holes and stupid decisions on Mafi's part. But first, the good news(or bad news for some of you).

The romance was very...steamy/swoony. If you were team Warner before, this book is made for you. Ignite Me lets you get to understand Warner and his reasoning behind his actions. Because of this, I pushed aside the bad parts of Ignite Me. I practically didn't even notice the problems of the book until after finishing the book, because of the FEELS. However, for this review, I also need to highlight the less-than-perfect parts of the book. And, yes, I am forever team Warner.

I also admired Mafi on writing Juliette's character. She finally wasn't a whiny little brat! She took control of the situation and took action! I admire Mafi for deciding to do this(though I predicted this would happen).

Onto the first problem. For those of you who were team Adam, I am truly sorry. In Ignite Me, she paints Adam such a horrible color of anger and hatred. She almost seemed to take out all of his emotions besides those two. I can't tell you the exact reason without spoiling everything, but it is fairly obvious. Although Adam isn't my favorite character, I was so sad to see how Mafi handled his character in Ignite Me.

Second problem. There is absolutely(essentially) no plot. Well, there is a "plot". But it is such a horrendous one that I can't even call it a plot. Basically _ happens. Then _. And then the ending. I was looking forward to surprises in the plot, etc. Nope, nothing. I mean, seriously, there was NO SURPRISES besides Warner of course.

Third problem. This problem ties into the plot problem. Plot holes(and I'm talking about towards the ending here). I was just left so angry at the book, because WUT JUST HAPPENED? HO-WHAT IS GOING ON. Mafi did a horrible job about the realistic-ness.

The ending: sorry, fans, you're not gonna get much for closure. That's all I'm saying.

All together, this book wasn't horrible, though it was nearing towards there. The feels in the book saved me from hating the book, but I had so much hope for a better plot, characters, and did I mention the no-plot problem?
