Title: The Spark
Author: Jules Wake
Genre: Contemporary Romance
My Rating: 5 out of 5
Jess is falling for Sam. Sam is falling for Jess.
But it seems life will do whatever it takes to make them fall apart.
When Jess and Sam lock eyes at a party, a spark ignites. The spark. But love at first sight isn’t like the movies, especially when Sam’s ex, Victoria, is determined to make their honeymoon period a living hell.
Is love at first sight enough?
Love, love, love this story!
Have you ever had the ‘spark’ – you know that feeling when you meet someone and just have that instant connection? Well, Jess experiences that instant connection with Sam, a total stranger, at a family barbecue. By the end of the afternoon, they are both chatting away and getting on like they have known each other for ever. With both feeling Jess and Sam feeling that instant connection, they know they are meant to be together. Except for one problem. Sam already has a girlfriend and him and Victoria have been together for 4 years.
They do their very best to avoid each other and their feelings for each other, as Jess would never want to be the cause of another woman’s pain and upset. Her own father left when she was young, to move in with someone else, and Jess saw how it destroyed her mother. Sam ends his relationship with Victoria as he just can’t get Jess out of his head. The pair begin dating and both Jess and Sam are deliriously happy. This is where we think they get their happily ever after. But, sadly this isn’t the case. Sam’s ex, Victoria is doing everything in her power to break them up and keep them apart.
The Spark is an honest story of how not everything in love and life goes to plan. They story does tackle sensitive and emotional subjects, like the very fragile and broken relationship between Jess and her Mum. It is packed full of emotion, romance, love and I completely loved it! Having already read (and loved) The Saturday Morning Park Run by Jules, I was hoping that I was going to love The Spark just as much – and I did!
