Well, this was a first for me-I was not able to finish this book. I stuck it out all the way to 75%, then just couldn't take it anymore. It was very disappointing, as I had put off finishing another book series to read this one since I had heard many good things about it. After getting as far as I did, I have to ask-did all those people even read the same book? Seriously. Where to start...
-Grammar and basic editing. When you can't even get the apostrophes right...and there were some words the author used that don't mean what I she must think they mean, mixed up words and missing words as well.
-Why are so many of the characters yelling, screaming and shrieking?
-No development of the characters; I found myself not really caring what was happening with any of them.
-The horrible things that happened in to Velaney in the past were introduced into the story very awkwardly, with bits of information peppered in here and there just randomly.
-The story does not flow well at all. The way it is written makes it sound very juvenile, from the things the characters say, the way they act and the way the story is told.
-There are so many unbelievable things-for starters, I don't know of any fire department that would let one of its firemen borrow a fire truck to take someone on a date (for what seemed like a good portion of the day too). And I've never, ever heard of a landlord giving someone a master key to all the apartments in a building just because he's a fireman (seriously-I mean, is he expecting a bunch of fires?). The attitudes , words and actions of Velaney and her parents in regards to Aiden, well the word "ridiculous" springs to mind. Velaney and Aiden's interaction when she leaves her parents house after going to confront them (at that 75% point I mentioned earlier) were what made me throw the towel in on this one.
I know most authors work very hard on their stories so I hate to give a low rating, but when a book gets so unbelievable and totally out there that I can't even finish it, I can't just toss some stars out there. Sorry, but I deleted it (and its sequel, Burn) off my Kindle app. Not worth the 99 cents each that I paid for them.
I really struggled to put this one down and finished it within a day. I even took public transport to work so I could continue reading instead of driving! This is a highly recommended 5 star read.
Laney and Eric meet when Eric rescues her from a fire in their apartment block. They are instantly attracted to each other. However, due to Velaney's childhood she doesn't have the ability to interpret his actions for what they are and Eric doesn't know how to get his point across with an innocent like Velaney.
I fell in love with Velaney's character from the very beginning, it's hard not to. She's suffered through a horrendous childhood at the hands of her family members.
Her brother is a scum bag and her parents will do anything to protect their family image. Even if that means Velaney is left to suffer. She is plodding along through life when she meets Eric and starts experiencing feelings that she doesn't know what to do with and quite frankly scare her to death. I love the way her character develops and gains strength, trying to take back control of her life in the face of her past.
Eric, Eric, Eric. No you can't have him, he's mine! Seriously Eric is the type of bloke that when you see him walk towards you, your brain short circuits. He's fit, he's tattoo'd, he's pierced and to top it all he's a fireman! He can rescue me anytime. It's obvious from the start that Eric has a thing for Velaney but has never had the response from a woman that he's getting from her which is putting him off his game. I also love Eric's character development, he has the bad boy appearance but with a heart of gold.
Brooke took me on such an emotional roller-coaster with Spark and has done an amazing job with this book. There are a few sensitive issues in the storyline which have been handled sensitively. I don't know how many times I ended up on the edge of my seat with my heart-rate rising while reading this book. The book twists and turns and keeps you constantly guessing. This book drags you in, holds you hostage and then refuses to let you go. Talk about book hangover. The story flows and the dialogue is real. You actually feel the emotions as if it was you and not Eric and Velaney.
Looking forward to book #2 in the series
