Running the Spark House, a hotel/event space that has been in her family for years, has been Avery Spark’s lifelong dream. After years of working hard and making personal sacrifices, Avery and her two younger sisters have turned the Spark House into the premier destination in Colorado Springs. Avery is living her best life—she works with her sisters and loves every minute of it, she has a great group of friends, and she lives in a fantastic condo with her best friend Declan. She might not have any love in her life, but she’s happy.
But everything comes to a screeching halt when Avery is in a car accident, leaving her immobile for weeks. After nearly losing Avery, Declan insists that he will be the one to take care of her while she recovers. However, as Declan becomes Avery’s caretaker, lines begin to blur.
Avery and Declan have been best friends since college and always had an attraction to one another, but when she ended up dating his best friend, Sam, they successfully stamped down any feelings they may have ever had for one another. Now, as Declan and Avery spend more time together, they each begin to wonder what would’ve happened if she’d dated him instead of Sam. What starts as a friend helping out another friend turns into foreplay and, before they realize it, they recognize how deeply they care for one another. But when things get serious their past threatens to destroy everything they have built.
I received an ARC in exchange for an honest review.
When Sparks Fly by Helena Hunting is a chick-lit romance.
This book has a really nice and realistic storyline. It started by introducing the characters and explaining how they are connected. Then there was the accident that changed the whole vibe of the book. It went from funny to a bit dramatic and then sexy. It’s not your usual romantic story since it goes a little bit on the «dark» side with the guilt trip and the heavy injuries. Other than that it’s quite entertaining and the love scenes are hot as well. The characters were very relatable and fun. There was obvious chemistry
from the beginning between them. I liked how much they cared for each other and how they dealt with their issues towards the end. My favorite part was the romantic gesture in the end.
It’s a great book that romance readers will love. I will rate it with 4 stars.
