Incite (Sphere of Irony #1) by Heather Leigh

Published December 14, 2014 by Shelbyville

Adam Reynolds is an impoverished teen raised by neglectful parents in one of London’s most dangerous boroughs. He turns to his love of music and countless girls to escape his sad reality.

Beautiful and naïve Ellie Palmer comes from a well-off family that suddenly finds themselves living in one of the poorest neighborhoods in London. Alone in a frightening new place, Ellie is afraid to leave the safety of her home, only going out to walk to school and back.

When Adam prevents Ellie from becoming the victim of a horrific sexual assault, they discover something that two teenagers never thought they would find in such a depressing place. Each other.

After tragedy, lies, and distance tear their future away from them; they each wander through life empty and hopeless no matter who or what they use to replace the feelings of loss.

From the crime-ridden streets of London’s East End to the over-the-top display of wealth in L.A. Can two broken souls conquer their demons in order to find true happiness?

My Thoughts…

Incite is my first Heather Leigh book and I cannot believe I have not checked her out before this.   This book is great.   It has strong female characters, sexy alpha males, and a great romance.   What more can you ask for?

Adam is a character that I loved most of the time, but there were times I disliked him.   He wore his heart on the sleeve when with Ellie.   He showed her the respect and the love that she deserves.  But… he seemed to give up so quickly on her.   He was quick to decide that he didn’t deserve her and lose himself in alcohol.   Those were the times that I did not like him very much.     He was definitely an alpha male, but knew what he wanted to be in life and did what he had to do to get there.   I loved that he was wanting to take Ellie with on his ride to success.  

Ellie, she was interesting.   The fact that she grew up privileged only to have that taken away swiftly and still managed to accomplish her goals in life made her a hero to me.    It would have been easy for her to give up, and who could blame her with all that was thrown at her, and still succeeded to become someone she could be proud of was inspirational.    The love that she had for Adam was probably one of the strongest that exists.   It was proven over and over just how strong a love has to be to strong and true.  

Heather Leigh is an author that I will certainly check out again and again.   I will not hesitate to read her books knowing that I will be entertained from the first page until the very last.    I definitely recommend this book.
