BlurbWhen Ginny Austen left home, she took her big dreams and her broken heart with her. She needed to escape her small town, but most of all, she needed to escape Luke Porter. Her first love, and her first heart break.
But when a new job sends Ginny right back to where she started, the past she tried so desperately to leave behind reappears in the form of broad-shouldered, smart-mouthed hunk, Luke who is impossible to resist and determined to make up for lost time. He still plays a mean game of pool and is super skilled between the sheets, but this new and improved Luke is ambitious, successful, and hiding pain of his own.
** Sparks Fly was previously published as Beach Wedding, and contains all new, additional material. **
This was a fun, lighthearted read that I really enjoyed. There was humor, an interesting plot, and the best cast of supporting characters that I've read in a long time (I'm hoping this is the start of a series)!
Wedding planner Ginny is working for a popular reality TV couple. They want their wedding in her hometown, where she left years ago without saying good-bye to her boyfriend and best friend. I'm not going to give spoilers, but I thought it was interesting and was able to understand Ginny's reason's for leaving. I liked reading her interactions with her aunts, assistants, ex, and friends. Like I mentioned earlier, some of these characters need their own stories!
It was fun reading about the making of the reality show, and Ginny gave us lots of feelings about why she made the choices she did and how they were affecting her now. It's a cute second chance romance. I wish we got to see a little more of Luke and Ginny as a couple as adults, I got a good sense of them together as kids though Ginny's memories, but as adults I didn't feel their relationship as much (though, the sex scenes were fade to black, so maybe that's what I was missing).
If you're looking for a fun and entertaining story, I totally recommend it!
