What it’s about:

What do you do when the one who sets your soul ablaze is not the one your with?

Ella has never experienced the feeling that overcomes her when she looks into his blue eyes for the first time.

Greyson had it all worked out. He was ready to marry his girlfriend and start the rest of his life. Until one touch makes him question everything.

What do you do when the other half of your soul is not yours but the partner of your possible future inlay?

This book does end on a cliffhanger and is part 1 of a 3 book series.

Review:

 

Sparks to Flames is a contemporary romance that involves several complicated relationships. Ella and Rick seem like a nice couple, and Rick even wants to take her home to meet the family. Too bad Rick’s sister, Shelly, is acrimonious and self-centered. Her instant dislike of and competition with Ella is quite odd and inexplicable. Shelly’s boyfriend, Greyson, on the other hand, feels an instant spark when he meets Ella.

Ella and Greyson are individually likable characters—regardless of how you might feel about them getting together when they are technically dating other people.   Their cheating hearts are much tamer than those of the other main characters. In fact, I believe every character cheated at one point in (or prior to) this story. The most likable characters are tertiary characters—Greyson’s family who are consistently loving and supportive of both Greyson and Ella.

Sparks to Flames is the set-up for a planned trilogy. It is melodramatic and filled with characters one will either love or hate. There are some tried-and-true plot points as well as some quite unique twists. The high-drama cliff hanger will have some on the edge of their seats anxiously awaiting the next installment of the series. I found the story interesting but not engaging, and while I don’t know that I would continue with the series, I can see its appeal to many readers.
