In the second follow up to “Chasing the Wild Sparks,” Hadley Beckett comes closer to triumphing over a reluctant Finn Wilder…
What would you do if the love of your life gave you the keys to the kingdom, but won’t let you in?
At the end of her rope, Hadley grabs her intrepid boyfriend Finn Wilder’s world by the…bridge. Finally ready to end the never-ending merry-go-round that is their unknotted life together, she enlists the help of her friends to help boost her own courage. Since Finn is all about walking on the wild side but not down an aisle, Hadley challenges him to the ultimate test that will prove her more daring than the daredevil himself, hoping Finn will take notice and change his mind about making her forever his.
Throwing down the irrevocable gauntlet, will Hadley celebrate supreme victory over his heart or will she accept the cruelest defeat at the very hand she holds?
Review by Brittany
I just finished this book. Like five minutes ago, and I am IN TEARS. I am SOOO hurt and devastated by the ending, I’ll warn you now, because I have to. IT IS NOT A HAPPY ENDING! At least, not to me. I have to tell you, because I wouldn’t wish this pain on anybody… Yeah, I might need psychiatric help if I’m getting so worked up over a book.
The Wild Sparks series is freaking fantastic. Times a billion. Wait, times infinity. It’s been a while since I’ve been hooked like this. Worth the read, if you are prepared for the emotional trauma it will bring you.
Throughout the series, Finn Wilder and Hadley Beckett have been trying to come to a compromise of sorts. Finn wants Hadley to move in with him, after three years of dating. Hadley wants to get married and have a kid. Finn wants neither of those, yet Hadley gives in and moves in with him.
Hadley is constantly told by her two best friends, Gregory Rodwell and Morgan Yates, that Finn is just stringing her along. Hadley, of course, doesn’t believe it. Both her and Finn have confessed their love to each other and have vowed to never leave, no matter what.
Things are thrown at them that neither of them that test their relationship. I can’t really say much, because I don’t want to give it away… but it sucks!
Is there something strong enough to break them? Will they be able to stay strong and keep their relationship going?
The emotions… I’m still on a high, well, a low. I am so upset. I have tears right now, after about half an hour after finishing the book. I connected with those characters. I prayed, I pleaded, I begged, I cried, and I screamed. I wanted everything for them, everything, but not everything happened.
This book deserves five stars. I am in no way going to give it a bad review because of the crappy ending, because this book, along with all the others in the series, was phenomenal. To be able to incite this much emotion in me takes a lot. My heart might be broken, but I’m willing to let everyone know that Ren Alexander is one fabulous writer. Really. Give her a chance. But like I said, not a happy ending.
It needs another run through with an editor, but that’s my only MINOR complaint. Like I said, the ending. Major complaint there.
I don’t think I could ever come to terms with this. I just… I can’t. I’ll stop ranting, because I want you to go check out this series. Really, it’s… I’ve ran out of words. Great, fabulous, fantastic, amazing, phenomenal, brilliant, stunning. You get my drift.
