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.
Hunting (A Kiss for a Kiss) delivers an enjoyable friends-to-lovers romance ignited by a lengthy recovery from a car accident. Twenty-eight-year-old hotelier Avery Spark is on her way to a business meeting when she crashes her car and breaks multiple bones. Declan McCormick, her roommate and best friend since college, offers to provide round-the-clock care during her recovery out of guilt for not driving her to the meeting as he'd promised. Avery is frustrated with her lack of mobility, but, with the encouragement of her sisters, finds an outlet in documenting her recovery on social media. And after Declan walks in on Avery masturbating, the pair decide he should help her relieve her sexual tension while her mobility is limited, leading both to admit to long-hidden mutual attraction. When pot brownies inspire an out-of-character rant from Avery that she posts on her hotel's social media, the loss of a major sponsor threatens the business. In her attempts to fix her mistake, Avery pursues an alternate sponsor with serious consequences for her fragile relationship. Hunting hits familiar notes but makes them sing, resulting in a predictable but charming love story. This is a solid pick for romance fans.
Great Fun Read💥
This is a lovely, sweet, friends to lovers, forced proximity-ish romance.
Declan and Avery have been best friends and roommates for a long time. Their friendship is effortless and their connection is obvious but they have never crossed the line......until they do and then things get complicated!!
This is quite a lengthy and absorbing story with more than just Declan and Avery’s relationship going on. We get to meet all the other people in their lives and learn a lot about them. I’m sure we will be meeting the Spark sisters again.
I appreciate Ms Huntings writing in that their is no unnecessary angst, any problems are realistic and understandable. Yes you want to shake Declan for his choices and ways of dealing but also Avery needed a wake up on a couple of occasions and who better to deliver it than your blunt, no nonsense sisters....
I enjoyed my stay at Spark House and look forward to London and Harley’s stories.
An enjoyable light read
Best friends Avery and Declan find themselves becoming much closer after a serious accident makes Declan her main caregiver whilst she recovers. Taking a chance on being more than friends, is though a risk, as Declan’s formative years have affected how he sees relationships.
Note: I was interested in the fact that Avery had waterproof casts as I had never heard of them. I therefore looked up the details on the Internet only to find that Avery would not have been a suitable candidate due to her surgery! Heigh-ho.
