~3.5 Star Review ~
I did enjoy When Sparks Fly and the reason I could not give a full four stars was only because I could not stick with the story. I loved the idea, I love the author to pieces, but the story did not make me fully fall for the story line. The characters had their back story – but I could not connect the dots. This does not mean that others won’t love this book. I am sure they will. It just did not fully for me.
I still recommend other readers to read When Sparks Fly. See if this is your cup of tea. What I love about the book community is that we all have our own likes and dislikes. But we still support each other. I love Helena Hunting and look forward to her next book.
When Sparks Fly by Helena Hunting
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.
