Jess is falling for Sam.

Sam is falling for Jess.

But it seems life will do whatever it takes to make them fall apart.

When Jess and Sam lock eyes at a party, a spark ignites. The spark. But love at first sight isn’t like the movies, especially when Sam’s ex, Victoria, is determined to make their honeymoon period a living hell.

Is love at first sight enough?

My Thoughts

Rating: 4 out of 5.

The Spark is such a dreamy book that makes you go “awwww…!”

I loved the concept of how a person does not belong to someone, so his/her affections are not somebody’s property. “Falling out of love” is just as real as “love at first sight.” This book will convince you that such things do exist.

Jess and Sam feel an instant connection when they meet each other for the first time, but there’s a problem. Sam has a long-time girlfriend, Victoria. Even though Sam breaks up with Victoria to be with Jess, Victoria is not having any of it.

What happens next will have you, the reader, experience a range of emotions–from anger and frustration to sadness and joy.

The Spark reminds you that there two sides to every matter and that rage and bitterness can often blind you to the truth. Also, some truths are not palatable but, nevertheless, you have to live with them if you want peace of mind.

It’s a lovely dance of emotions with a highly satisfying ending–for all parties involved.

Did you know that Jules Wake writes beautiful romantic stories as Julie Caplin? I had the opportunity to read one of her books, The Little Teashop in Tokyo, earlier this year.
