Release Blitz ~ Spark by Jennifer Ryder with giveaway


Not many people know that I, Eevie Lawson, have a problem. An addiction to romance novels. I eat them for breakfast. I hide it the best I can, but I need them to breathe. It’s how I cope.

I’ve had a swag of book boyfriends, but now that I’m free from the responsibility of caring for my three younger brothers, it’s time to find one in the flesh.

In real life, no girl meets their hero on page one, or even at the end of chapter one. I should know.

My journey is real. It’s not perfect, and it sure as hell isn’t easy—but the fight for something worthwhile never is.

Title: Spark (Spark Series #1)

 About the Author

New Adult and erotic romance writer. My debut novel ‘Spark’, part of a four part romantic suspense series will be released on 28 February 2014!

A sexy imagination, a life-long love of books and a sucker for romance, Jennifer Ryder couldn’t stifle her creativity any longer.

Writing steamy adult romance has become her new focus. Living on a rural property in New South Wales, Australia, she enjoys the best of city and country.

Her loving husband is ever willing to provide inspiration, and her two young cherubs, and sheep that don’t see fences as barriers, keep life more than interesting.

Jennifer placed third in the International Stringybark Erotic Short Fiction Award 2013.

My Thoughts:

This is a coming of age, finding herself, looking for love in some of the wrong places kind of story.

Eevie a major book lover (my kinda woman) has recently moved into an apartment which is a huge development in her life. You see her mother was unwell for a few years and Eevie handled the chores, shopping, bill paying, taking care of her younger brothers, everything! Now, she is finally free to enjoy herself and live a little.

She has some great friends and just when she starts to enjoy herself, one friend changes the rules of their friendship by giving her an ultimatum. Her mother drops a bombshell which has her head spinning and her heart hurting. She meets a man who she desires like no one she's ever known but they are both unavailable. 

Things go from bad to worse, get better, get worse, get better and then she has to deal with a major issue when a "friend" does something utterly unbelievable.

There was so much emotion written into Spark. I laughed, cried, gasped, yelled, cried.... You get the picture. 

There was drama, relationship ins and outs, disappointments, some steam and romance, ;-)
I really liked Aiden. At the end of the book, is a tiny snippet of the next book in this series, Spike. It gave me a spike in my adrenaline! I hope that my affection for Aiden is not wrongly placed. I can not wait to find out.

I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this book. I can tell you worry warts that it does not end in a cliff hanger.

I received an ecopy of this book in exchange for my honest opinion. It was totally engaging, both heart wrenching, and heart warming in equal measures. In other words I took a shine to this Sparkle. :-) I look forward to seeing many, many, many more books from this debut author. :-)
