Charming, hilarious, and emotional...When Sparks Fly is Helena Hunting at her very best!
Avery Spark is living her best life. Between her friends, her sisters, and Spark House, the event hotel her family owns, she doesn’t have much time for anything else, especially relationships. She’d rather hang out with her best friend and roommate, Declan McCormick, than deal with the dating scene. But everything changes when she is in a car accident and needs someone to care for her as she heals.
Declan avoids relationships, giving him a playboy reputation that he lives up to when he puts a one-night stand ahead of a promise he made to Avery. While he may not have been the one driving the car, he feels responsible for Avery’s injuries and is determined to make it up to her by stepping into the role of caretaker.
Little did they know that the more time they spend in compromising positions, the attraction they’ve been refusing to acknowledge becomes impossible to ignore. When they finally give in to the spark between them, neither is prepared for the consequences. Their love is fragile and all it will take is a blow from the past to shatter it all.
I received this book for free from in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.
If there is anything you can count on when you pick up a book by Helena Hunting is that you will go through all of the feels. And when I say all of the feels, I mean ALL. OF. FEELS.
When Sparks Fly is no exception. Be prepared for an emotional rollercoaster. You will laugh, cry, get mad and swoon all before you reach the end.
Helena’s story-telling gave me no choice but to be invested in Avery and Declan and rooting for them. I’ll be honest in that there were some slow parts but I was still glued to the book and could not put it down until the end.
Now, I can admit.. and don’t come at me on this… but… I’m not really into the friends to lovers trope. I like them alright… but I always enjoy experiencing the characters meeting for the first time. I can sometimes feel like I’m missing part of their relationship if they already know one another before the story begins.
I did NOT feel that way at all with When Sparks Fly. I think Helena has converted me over to being a fan of friends to lovers. I did not for a second feel like I had missed anything about Avery and Declan’s relationship. Helena had me so very much invested in both characters the entire time.
