Brittany's Review for Chasing the Wild Sparks
Chasing the Wild Sparks is book one in the Wild Sparks series by Ren Alexander, and it is definitely a great start to a series for this beginning writer.
I had heard so much about this series, seeing people raving about it all over Facebook. I finally checked it out, and I was blown away.
Hadley Beckett has been dating local sports anchor Finn Wilder for three years now. Finn, it seems, has commitment issues. He won’t introduce her to his friends, he won’t propose to her, and he won’t take her anywhere in public. Hadley, or Becks, as Finn calls her, is getting fed up.
Becks and Finn, along her best friends Morgan and Rod, travel on a tumultuous journey to find out where their relationship really stands. After a huge blowout one night, it seems that the end has come for Becks and Finn.
Can both of these stubborn adults give a little to each other so they can both get what they want?
Like I said earlier, I had heard a lot about this book. Before I had even read it, I had been pimping Ren on my blog, getting her page to reach certain milestones. Now I have a reason to pimp her.
The story was fantastic. Full of angst, love, and friendship. Finn and Becks work really well together, and her best friends are hilarious. I know there’s a story behind Gregory Rodwell, and I really hope he gets a book soon.
This book kept me on my toes the whole time. I was hoping that at some unforeseen moment, one of them would give in. I can’t tell you if they did or not… that’s for you to find out.
Ren also does an amazing job with making this book really steamy, yet really sweet at the same time. My panties were wet at the same time that my cheeks were hurting from smiling at the cuteness.
There were some small grammar errors, nothing to major. The only thing that bothered me a lot, was the point of view changes. Now, don’t get me wrong, I love reading in dual points of view. But I absolutely hate having to read the same scene in a different point of view. It’s boring.
Really, though, that’s all. This book was fantastic and I’m itching to read the next book, Daring the Wild Sparks. I really want a happily ever after for both people.
Five stars from me, Ren! You did a wonderfully amazing job with this first book and I know that some pretty amazing things are going to come from you.
On a day like any other, Allyn Sommers went off to work, not knowing that her life was about to be irrevocably and horrifically altered. Three years later, Allyn is still a prisoner in her own home held captive by harrowing fear. Broken and damaged, Allyn seeks help from someone that fate brought her. Dr. Dominic Shriver is a psychiatrist who’s drawn to difficult cases. He must push past his own personal battles to help Allyn fight her monsters and nightmares. Is Dr. Shriver the answer to her healing? Can Allyn overcome the broken? I don't do 'normal'. I've found that the more I write, the more I like being different to other authors. I write in first person, and I love to challenge a reader. I take the normal and switch it around. For me, I really enjoy getting a reaction from a reader. So if I can evoke an emotion (regardless of if it's the emotion the reader wants) then I figure that I've done my job as an author I want to be. I really quite revel in taking people out of their comfort zones and pushing them to read something different. My genre of writing is, well quite frankly, where ever my mind goes. I won't label myself because I don't like sticking to one genre. My goal with writing is just to take people away from whatever is going on in their lives, even if it's only for a split second. I'm a go with the flow sort of person and don't really take a course of action to get where I am going. I live in the moment and don't usually worry about tomorrow because whatever life is due to bring me, I'll be happy to accept. I love my family and friends and will help anyway I can if someone needs it. I really don't like people that are nasty just because they can be, I don't believe that's necessary, I mean life's hard enough as it is! I hope you enjoy my books, I've had a hoot writing them. There's more to come..... Til next time. M xx

Life can change in the blink of an eye. No one knows that better than Lily Pritchardâ¦
Witnessing your fatherâs murder is every 15 year old girlâs worst nightmare; for Lily Pritchard it was her reality. Tormented by nightmares, twisted with guilt, Lily canât let anyone close enough to care for herâ¦until her world is rocked on its axis by a tall dark stranger.
Brandon Redgrave is intelligent, gorgeous, and wealthy; but he learned the hard way not to expect loyalty or love from those around you. Haunted by his demons, Brandon is determined not to make the same mistake again.
A chance encounter; two broken souls; explosive consequences.
Will Brandon and Lily be able to heal each otherâs wounds, or will their pasts spill into the present, extinguishing any chance of a future togetherâ¦
As usual, I am so caught up in my own head that Iâm not really paying attention to my surroundings. I am so oblivious, I donât even know what hits me. I find myself falling to the ground, my books and bag in the air, my coffee colliding with and slowly sinking into the grass. My only thought is that I am about to smack my head of the ground and do myself some major damage, which I am not looking forward to. I only realize when the pain doesnât come, that I am being held just shy of the ground by a very strong, warm, and hard, pair of arms.
Eva Simone is a stay at home mother of two, wife to a wonderful hubby, and certified book addict! She studied English at university, gaining an honours degree in literature and linguistics.
After straying so far from her education Eva was sucked back in to the world of reading by the illustrious FSOG. Two years later, and at least 200 books later, with a story on the back burner she decided it was time to put her education to good use and write her first novel.
Eva is hoping that everyone will enjoy reading Brandon and Lilyâs journey as much as she has enjoyed writing it. There are currently plans for two further books in this series.
Book: Out of ReachAuthor: Missy Johnson Event Organized by: Indie Sage, LLC Synopsis: Andy and I had been best friends since we were eight-years old. Watching him slowly fade away, ever closer to his final breath, made me so incredibly angry. I knew there was nothing I could do to change it–I had given in to despair, but Andy had not. He had one last hand to play. He wasn’t going to simply sit back and wait for Death to claim him–not Andy. He was going to live life until he couldn’t hold his eyes open any longer. Andy didn’t want to die in some sterile hospital and asked me to take him and Emily to the beach. It would be our last road trip together. Emily. Emily was a problem for me. I harbored a secret that would have torn our friendship apart. I was in love with Andy’s girl, and had been since she’d walked into our sixth grade class, so many years ago. So what kind of person am I? My best friend is dying, and it’s awful–but my heart still aches for his girl. I hate myself for thinking beyond Andy’s death and whether there could ever be a future for Emily and I, but I can’t help it. I love her.
