I kept looking at the page number and couldn't believe how long it took me to move on from a chapter.
Love at first sight is the kind of thing that only happens in books and movies, it certainly does not happen in real life. However, when Sam and Jess lock eyes at a party, they soon realise that Hollywood wasn’t lying and that you can find your soulmate in the most unlikely and most surprising of places and just know it. Of course, the path of true love never did run smooth. Sam might have fallen head over heels in love with Jess, but there is one small problem: Sam has already got a girlfriend, Victoria, who isn’t about to let her man go without a fight.
Having made a connection at the party, a friendship between Sam and Jess soon blossoms. But the more time he spends messaging Jess and chatting to her, the more Sam realises that he wants to be more than friends with her, so he musters up the courage and tells Victoria that he wants to break things off because he has fallen in love with someone else. Naturally, this does not go down well with Victoria who vows to do whatever it takes to make the woman who stole her boyfriend pay for what she did to her. Victoria is determined to pull out all the stops to break Sam and Jess up, but will she succeed in her nefarious plan? Or will she end up inadvertently strengthening the bond between her ex and his new girlfriend?
With Victoria doing everything in her power to ruin their relationship, will Sam and Jess manage to triumph over all the obstacles she is putting in their way? Or is love at first sight simply not enough when it comes to building a long-lasting relationship?
A fun read that tickles the funny bone and will keep readers eagerly turning the pages, Jules Wake has got another winner on her hands with The Spark. A wickedly witty and highly enjoyable tale where the chemistry is electric, the humour delicious and the romance heart-melting, The Spark is a superb page-turner that has got it all: brilliantly drawn characters, intense emotional drama, laugh out loud moments and even a scheming ex-girlfriend readers will not be able to stop themselves from booing.
An uplifting romantic comedy, Jules Wake’s The Spark is not to be missed.
Jess is a compassionate and selfless person who puts the happiness of others before her own. She has supported her mother for years after her father left her for another woman, but not everything is all it seems. With that being said she meets the man of her dreams and realizes she has become the other woman, although they didn’t start dating until a month after Sam broke up with his ex. Jess is the woman Sam’s friend’s ostracize and his parents think is a mistake. Jess takes that knowledge to analyze her relationship with her mother and her estranged father.
Jess and Sam are so good for each other. Sam is an honorable man and completely in love with Jess which he proves each time he stands up for her with his ex, with his parents, and with his so-called friends. But Victoria, Sam’s ex-girlfriend, is devastated and unhinged. So much so she puts Sam and Jess’s relationship at risk with some very unforgivable and deplorable actions. All I can say is shame on all of Sam’s family and friends who don’t support and trust him to make his own choices.
In conclusion, Jess comes to terms with her past so she can move on with her future. And boy does she give Victoria and her friends the tongue-lashing they deserve in the name of love. Best ending ever!!
I recommend this very realistic and emotional love story filled with love, forgiveness, and an ending worth waiting for.
Thank you to Ms. Wake for giving me the opportunity to read this book with no expectation of a positive review.

How could you lust after someone based on you shared love of Big Bang Theory and David Tennant as the Dr. They both just seem so basic... but look there's someone for everyone in a romance land because these two can't get enough of each other.
Feels more likely to be a fizzle than a spark to me...
*seriously though, what 30 year old likes Coldplay??
I'm not sure whether this fits the blurb description of an uplifting romcom, although I do find this to usually be the case. What it actually is, for me anyway, is an insight into relationships with the stigma of being the other woman in a relationship. As the story progresses you find out more about Jess and her fear of being the other woman, even though she strictly isn't as the relationship had broken up before she actually went out with Sam. With believable characters and a storyline that does keep you wondering what the final outcome is this is a book for someone who wants a book with a more serious undertone for a change.
I genuinely didnt feel they were necessary and that is why I have given a 3. Bad language and detailed sex are fine in their place and might suit many readers but this is tagged as a romantic comedy.
I've just bought some more Jules Wake books now so I'll need a new box of tissues in readiness for the next story!!!.
I highly ,highly ,highly recommend you read this!!!
