Review: Spark (Spark #1) By Brooke Cumberland

When your past controls your future, how do you move forward?
Velaney Wills knows about that all too well. 
Weak, powerless, and fearing the one person who has hurt her the most…can she overcome the barriers to move forward?
Being saved by a muscled Godsend was never on her agenda, but when firefighter, Eric Reilley comes into her life unexpectedly, everything changes. 

Velaney has never felt loved or cared for, and her past prevents her from letting anyone in. Eric manages to break down her walls—despite the repercussions that come for them afterwards.

They have an undeniable spark—something she has never felt before, but will it be enough? Can love overcome all obstacles? Can they save each other to protect their love or will her past shatter everything she never knew she needed…?

**Spark is for mature audiences only – strong language, explicit sexual content, and sexual abuse are apparent.**

My Review!

Velaney Wills has a past, a past which has made her feel weak and damaged, a past that has scarred her for life..
what happens when that past comes back to haunt her?
Will her horrid past ever leave her alone?
Can she be saved?

The book starts off where there is a fire in the building Velaney and her roommate Carissa stay at..When Velaney is saved by a hot firefighter things begin to change. They have an undeniable spark but will is be enough?

"My eyes wandered up to his abs, triceps, and pecks. His

shirt looked painted on, it was so tight against him. The V-neck
was a perfect touch, giving a small view of hair and tattoos on his
chest. His jeans are ripped, of-freaking-course, and his shoes—
no boots, cowboy boots are sticking out the bottom. He stands so
tall and manly—I squint to make sure he is for real."

Eric is a strong, funny, determined firefighter and when he first lays his eyes on a sleeping Velaney, he is determined to find out more about her..there is a spark, he can feel it and he is determined to make her see that they are good together.

Velaney can feel the chemistry she has with Eric but can she open up to him and tell him about her past? She feels safe with him which she hasn't felt in a long time..

Eric manages to break down her walls..

But what happens when her past comes back and is so much more dangerous?

Can Eric save her again?...

“I’m a firefighter. We don’t…usually knock,” he grins,

knowing exactly what I meant. “Okay, fine. I was hoping I’d catch
you naked again. Looks like I got half lucky.” He laughs, and
dodges my hand as I go to slap his shoulder.
“Gees, you really are a perve.” He pouts, putting his
lower lip out as if he’s offended. It immediately puts a soft spot in
my heart as I keep running—literally, into this man. Maybe it’s
okay to let my guard down…"

I loved this book! Well done Brooke!!
I was hooked right from the first page the suspense, the humour, the shocks and horrors kept me reading.

I really felt sorry for Velaney her past was messed up to say the least.I admired her strength to carry on and grow into a stronger person but there were times I wanted her to stop running and embrace it..the "it" being Eric ;)

Now talking of Eric..

Ahhhhh Eric he rocks! I loved how he never gives up on Velaney and helps her through it all.
Oh and he saves her like soo many times :D
Eric is charming, funny,caring , honest and did I mention HOT?

The ending of this book came too quickly and for a few moments(hours) I thought pages were missing..It couldn't just end there!

Give me the next book nowww! I need it!!
