Release Blitz & Giveaway: Jennifer Ryder's "Spark (Spark Series #1)."

The Hopeless Romantics Book Blog are pleased to be a part of the Release Blitz & Giveaway for Jennifer Ryder's "Spark (Spark Series #1)."


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’ve had a swag of book boyfriends, but now that I’m free from 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 at the end of 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.

Blitz Review: Jo Rushton

I loved the synopsis to this book by debut Author "Jennifer Ryder". It described a  story about a girl who loved to read romance novel's and now it was her turn to find a real boyfriend rather than obsessing over her many book boyfriends. Of course we all know that, unfortunately, finding your soul mate is not as easy as it is in the world of our beloved books. "Spark" sounded like a story where any one of us could be the main character, what's not to love about that?

In "Spark" we saw Eevie on a quest to find Mr Right. Eevie was just a regular girl.. the girl next door. She was sweet and pretty but didn't have much experience when it came to boys. At the beginning of the story, I saw her go from one bad romance to another and that began to frustrate me a little. It was obvious the boys she went out with just weren't right for her but it was just one bad choice after another. I guess in the grander scheme of things,  you only learn from experience, right?

So eventually Eevie's quest led her to hunky Aidan. Yay!!! OK so maybe not because despite their eyes meeting over a crowded room and sparks flying, they were both in relationships with other people... damn shame because it meant she had to let him go. Now in the synopsis we're told that no one meets their hero on page one or even at the end of the first chapter and the synopsis was right. I had to wait until almost half way through the book before things started getting exciting for Eevie. This drove me a little crazy!! At last Eevie and Aidan got re-acquainted and this time there was no stopping them.

"Do you know how long I've wanted you? Wanted to taste these lips?" 

The couple were so attracted to each other, the passion between them growing so intense that when they did finally get together, it was electric At last Eevie's luck appeared to be changing, but would Eevie's and Aidan's happiness last?

I really liked the main characters in "Spark." Aidan was the perfect guy for Evie, he was sweet, caring, loving and of course very sexy and I just loved how protective he was of her. My heart melted for Evie  because it appeared she had finally found her Mr Right. She truly deserved some real love and romance in her life. 

"Aidan gave me everything I needed. He gave me time. 
He gave me support and most of all he gave me love. Unconditional, unrestricted love." 

Although I found "Spark" a little slow to begin with, failing to capture my imagination, the second half of the story really made up for it. I'm glad that I continued to read because "Spark" turned out to be an enjoyable read. I loved the second half of the story, it began to really pull me in and I became hooked. Spark is the first book in the series. There was no a nasty cliff-hanger at the end but it did leave me wanting more. I'm already looking forward to reading the second book in the series already to see whats in store for for this couple. I give this book 4 sparkly hearts!
