"She is all into the whole cliche love stories. Girl meets boy. Boy saves girl. Girl and boy live happily ever after. Too bad that wasn't my story, was never going to be my story, and could never be my story."~Velaney
Don't be so sure Velaney, because you never know what or who is around the corner, your story is about to take an unexpected turn.
Velaney is a young women only living half a life, her actions are controlled by fear and the experiences she endured as a child.
One fiery morning she is rescued by a; burn this building down HOT firefighter, immediately they spark a connection and after learning he just moved into her apartment building they soon develop a friendship.
"He smiles down at me, and my hands that are supposed to be smacking the wall are pressed up against his hard, sweaty chest. Oh hells balls, he has a nipple ring. And tattoos. Good Lord, i'm doomed"~Velaney
Vel ,you are not the only one that is doomed I think the entire female population is doomed right along with you after meeting Eric.
Eric is a southern Hottie and as I mentioned before a fire fighter (Brooke struck gold with this creation A southern gentleman plus a fire fighter, every girls dream)
He is sweet, protective, caring, gentle and his goodness just pours from the pages.
That first rescue of Velaney was to be the first of many, he becomes her hero always saving her from her own clumsiness or from others who wish to bring her harm.
These two don't just jump right into a relationship, they build a friendship, even though sometimes that proved difficult because their undeniable sizzling chemistry.
"I told you. I'm excellent at reading people, and body language. I see the sexual tension between you two, and if you don't get it on soon your pu**y will combust."~Carissa
Vel does not believe she is good enough for Eric, with all her emotional baggage and triggers she sadly believes she is too damaged to have a normal relationship, So she pushes him away. But Eric does not give up on her, he takes his time to get to know her as a person gaining her trust and always providing a shelter from all the craziness of life. He became her home her safe place.
"Don't let what they did to you then define who you are now. They don't deserve that. They don't deserve any part of you"~Carissa
Over time the spark between them is just too intense to be ignored any longer and they embark on a relationship. However that relationship is not without its challenges Vel has a lot to over come in-order to maintain a healthy even field relationship.
This becomes the least of their problems when a figure from her past return with no good intentions. (some scary pretty nasty things happen trust me)
I won't giveaway anymore you are just going to have to read the book to find out what happens. Trust me its one hell of a roller coaster ride that you will not forget any time soon.
"The way Eric has the ability to complete me and make me feel whole for the first time in my life is uncanny. I never believe in those corny love stories-happily ever and all that crap. I was wrong. Oh, god, was I wrong."~Vel
don't let that quote fool you noting is what it seems.
I'm gonna tell you why I gave this book a five star (5 stars has been on a lock down from me lately, but I could not denied just how much I enjoyed this story). This book has some dark series issues that it tackles, despite all the seriousness and heavy issues I was laughing my head off. Brooke just has a way of intertwining the one lines at the right moment. The flow was seamless and if you have read her first book you can see just how much she has grown as a writer.
Vel best friend Carissa is simply one of the best secondary character I have ever read, she is funny as hell, has no filter what-so-ever she just says whatever the hell come to her mind. She needs to have her own book I could read about her all day long a strong feisty women after my own heart.
Her strength and support for Velaney is just inspiring.
Velaney is unable to swear and her replacement words are just hilarious.
The book does ends on a cliffhanger but not a major one to cause you a headache and you don't have to wait too long to have the next installment "Burn"
overall a very good book well written with great characters and a brilliant story line.
By Brooke Cumberland
When fireman Eric Reilley rescues Velaney Wills from her apartment when the block she lives in goes on fire, they have an immediate connection but Velaney has trouble opening up to guys because of her abusive past. Eric tries to break down the walls and get into her heart. Enter Alex who she is also attracted to, Valeney must decide who she likes better and pick who she wants to be with.
This novel does contain details of abuse and I found it hard to read sometimes because of this. It is also a very emotional read that had me crying a few times during reading it.
I also must say that it has taken me ages to get into it, I was about 30% in and about to give up on continuing but thank goodness I didn't I would have missed out on this cracking story. So I do urge readers that are struggling to get into it to keep going you won't be disappointed.
The more I read the more I was pulled in and really could not put it down. A really deep story with a bit of a cliffhanger ending that will have you anticipating the next book in the series.
I loved Eric and was smitten with him from the very start. Very sexy with his piercing and tattoos and smoking hot body.
A fantastic read that is clearly one of my favourite reads of this year so far....
I am giving Spark 5 stars for Amazon and 5 stars for goodreads.
This story is about Velany a Hockey Medic and part time Barmaid, she has suffered immensely throughout her life with no help from Family,
her best friend Carissa is her Rock they Love each other fiercely and Carissa would do/will do anything to help Veleny.
Eric is a Hunky Fire fighter and lives in the same building, one day a Fire breaks out in the building and Carissa manages to get out however Velany is fast asleep in her bed and Eric rushes in to save her and Sparks will Fly between them... I really loved the Chemistry between Velany and Eric and not to forget Carissa,she's one hell of a Woman.
I don't want to reveal to much about this book because I think it would spoil it, the one thing I will say is its packed with Humour, Sadness, Passion, Romance, Sexual Desire and plenty of Action, my favourite kind of book.
when I finished I thought No, No, No. you cant leave it there Brooke!!!! I need the next instalment now!!!!
Well done Brooke, Loved it and looking forward to the next book.
The concept of this story was rather good, but somehow it didn't really come across that well in print.
Velaney is a young woman with a very upsetting past, that she struggles against on a daily basis. Her roommate & best friend Carissa is a strong willed woman, who is there for Velaney, every step of the way. She knows about her horrible past & loves & helps her.
When Velaney is rescued by handsome fire fighter Eric, she begins to feel loved & cherished for the first time. Unfortunately, things do not run smoothly for them.
I found it rather slow in some places and then rushed in others.
The characters were great & the dynamic between them all was really good, but it just didn't seem to get going properly. Some scenes were meant to be very dramatic, but they didn't quite get there, for me anyway.
