Ignite Me by Tahereh Mafi

Genre:  YA Dystopian Fantasy
Shatter Me Series, Book 3

Disclaimer:  This is an awesome series to read; you won't be disappointed.  But if you decide to read my review without having read the first two books, you're going to experience spoilers in the earlier books.

Description (taken from Goodreads):
With Omega Point destroyed, Juliette doesn’t know if the rebels, her friends, or even Adam are alive. But that won’t keep her from trying to take down The Reestablishment once and for all. Now she must rely on Warner, the handsome commander of Sector 45. The one person she never thought she could trust. The same person who saved her life. He promises to help Juliette master her powers and save their dying world . . . but that’s not all he wants with her.

From the very beginning, I loved Warner.  If I weren't married, book-boyfriends were real, and I could have multiple book-boyfriends, he'd be one of them.  But he'd have to be nice to me and not try to kill me...

Anderson, the leader of The Reestablishment, has destroyed Omega Point.  And he almost succeeded in killing Juliette.  But Warner, for some reason, saves her.  While trying to find her friends, Juliette begins to question Warner's intentions.  And she's also decided she's done letting others decide how she should live.  And she lets go of the shell she's hidden in and takes charge with a plan to destroy The Reestablishment.

My reviews from the last two books always mention a weird writing style that doesn't take long to get used to.  Either Tahereh Mafi modified her writing style, Juliette's head got a little clearer once she figured out what she was going to do, or I was just unaffected by the writing style.  My brain was screaming "gimme, gimme" and I read all but 60 pages in one sitting.  And once I realized the ending was coming up, I wanted to savor this series.  I had a hard time picking up those last few chapters.  You know when something tastes so good you don't want to eat it because then it'll be gone and over?  That's how the ending of this book was.

I really loved this series.  The only complaint I have about this book is the fight scene or climax was super small; it wasn't the main point of the book.  I think the main point was watching Juliette grow into who she was going to be and take charge.  That was awesome.  And so is Warner.  Enough said.

Do you like dystopians?  Do you like romance?  If you haven't read this series yet, you must be living in a box without books...
