When I move to small town Carolwood, I don't expect to run into a hot-as-sin firefighter with smoldering gray eyes and eight-pack abs. Literally. With my car. Doesn't help matters that Braden Michaels is my brother's best friend. And my new roommate.
He’s too busy putting out blazes and igniting them in the hearts of women to pay much attention to me. I’m just here for work—six months of nerding out at a world-renowned science lab, then going home to a nice promotion and the boring men in my comfort zone.
I’m not here for a rescue fantasy, a fire station pole dance, or a romantic walk in a vineyard. I’m certainly not here to fall in love.
Until one earth-shattering night when we collide in a ball of white-hot sparks, and everything changes. We’re no longer just roommates. I don’t know what we are. But edging open Braden’s complicated heart knocks something loose in mine. All my plans and scientific facts start to pale in comparison with feelings I can’t control.
My time here has an expiration date and neither one of us wants to get hurt. Rushing into a burning building seems less risky than chasing the spark between us. Maybe it’s smarter to walk away. Or maybe I've found the one reason to stay.
Do opposites attract or are we playing with fire?
The Spark Between Us is Sarah and Braden's story in the Berkeley Hills series and is an opposites attract STANDALONE novel.
If you want angst, swoon, heat and really amazing characters the this book is for you. Highly recommended - great, fun and entertaining book!
Sarah and Brandon are both so set in their ways they nothing or no one will change their current life path/direction. Funny how sometimes the best laid plans are challenged.
Sarah is a smarty smart who is in town for a short period of time to work on a specific project. Definitely not looking for love because her career plans are fully “planned out” and she doesn’t have time for a relationship.
Brandon is a fireman…or is it firefighter 😀 who loves helping his community and is definitely not looking for love after being hurt by someone.
As they become roommates they make an agreement to fit both of their needs but struggle to stick to the agreement. The more time they spend together the more feelings start creeping in.
These two characters are full of heat, sass and compassion for those around them.
I requested an arc and I am leaving my honest review.
The Spark Between Us
The Spark Between Us is book 3 in the Berkeley Hills series and it follows Sarah and Braden’s trials as roommates.
Sarah is a super fun, super geek with a life plan. And Braden is a real softy firefighter with walls from past relationships.
I liked getting a glimpse of Sarah’s siblings from earlier in the series and reading about her own happily ever after.
This is a low angst, friends to lovers, brother’s best friend, forced proximity romance with a great meet cute! Stacy’s writing style gave this story life and I highly recommend it!
