ARC Review: Roman Holiday #5: Ignited by Ruthie Knox

The blurb as seen on Goodreads:
Release Date: December 9, 2013
Publisher: Loveswept
58 Pages

Ruthie Knox’s eBook original serial, Roman Holiday, resumes in Episode 5. While Ashley’s home and Roman’s career hang in the balance, new temptations flash like fireflies in the night sky.
Ignited finds Roman and Ashley still on their roadtrip and still battling their feelings for one another. Here we find our pair in the campgrounds of Pennsylvania where we meet Stanley and Michael, brothers who used to vacation at Sunnyvale. And my, aren't they an interesting pair.

Roman and Ashely are still at each others throats, but in a more toned down version. I feel like in this installment, we finally get communication between the two. While I still am not a huge fan of Ashley or how she manipulates Roman, at least here, we finally start to see that Roman may not be much of a prisoner as it seems.

Here we see the walls start to break down. Roman starts to see the cracks in Ashley's persona. And for this I am grateful. As a reader, Ashley was very hard to sympathize with and I often felt like Roman, only seeing the outside and her ridiculous ideals. Roman himself also opens up a bit here. And piece by piece you can see the walls crumbling.

With the addition of Stanley on their roadtrip though, I'm not sure how much more sharing will be happening. Hopefully these two will sit down and have a real conversation soon so that they can begin to work together and come to a common agreement. 

I received an e-copy of this novel for my honest opinion and review from the publisher via Netgalley.
