Spark by Jennifer Ryder- Blog Tour and Review!






Not many people know, that I, Eevie Lawson, have a problem. An addiction. To Romance novels. I eat them for breakfast. I hide it the best I can, but I need them. To breathe. It’s how I cope.

I have a swag of book boyfriends, but now I’m free of the responsibility of caring for my three younger brothers, it’s time to find one in the flesh.

In real life, no girl meets their hero on page one, or even chapter one. I should know.

My journey is real. It’s not perfect, and it sure as hell isn’t easy. But the fight for something worthwhile never is.

My Review:
Spark (Spark, #1)Spark by Jennifer Ryder
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Eevie Lawson is living on her own for the first time. She has has to put her own life on hold to help her mother and brothers during the years she should have been finishing college. She loves a good romance novel and wants nothing more than a healthy happy sex life and someone to love. Eevie doesn't have much real-life experience, but she knows that she is ready. Unfortunately, it can be tough to find someone who matches up to the perfect book boyfriends that live in her novels.

Eevie is hard-working, smart, kind, and loyal. It is really tough to watch her go through some rough attempts at a relationship before finding one that is worth everything she has to offer. Her friends are a supportive and wonderful, and they are all deserving of the love and care they offer to each other. When Aidan enters the picture and Eevie realizes what sexual chemistry really feels like things start to get interesting. When Eevie and Aidan realize that they both have even more to offer each other besides an incredible physical connection, it is something fantastic to experience. These are characters that it is easy to care about and even though there are some serious challenges ahead, it is easy to see how they can get through anything together. I will be looking forward to the next book in this series!

Excerpt
“Thank God I didn’t drop the towel. I would have literally died from embarrassment,” I mutter, shaking my head. We stand in such close proximity in the narrow hallway, barely clothed and dripping wet. Aidan’s tongue darts out, wetting his bottom lip, my eyes unable to move from his luscious, now wet, lips. Fuck. I step back towards my bedroom, trying to make my getaway.
Aidan raises an eyebrow, and leans up against the doorway to the bathroom. “Yeah, that would have been somethin’ else,” he says in a gravelly voice.
My eyes skim over his firm, muscular torso.
Gulp.
Ryan Gosling, eat your heart out.
“There are spare towels in the cupboard if you want to dry off. I … I need to get dressed.”
“No worries, I’ll sort it.”
“Night, Aidan,” I mutter.
“Yeah, night,” he says softly. I struggle to pull my gaze away from the longing in those dreamy eyes. Fuck, that look is doing wicked things to me. I revel in the moment briefly and then remember … yet again, that I have a boyfriend, he has a girlfriend, and I smile politely, and march into my room. I let out the loudest of sighs as my back thuds against the back of the door.
What the fuck just happened?
Did I run over a black cat? Did I royally fuck someone over in a past life? The tall, dark, handsome stranger in the very next room, has upset the basic rhythm of my heart, and has me craving things I shouldn’t … not with him. This is cruel. So very cruel.
