Charming, hilarious, and emotional...When Sparks Fly is Helena Hunting at her very best!


Avery Spark is living her best life. Between her friends, her sisters, and Spark House, the event hotel her family owns, she doesn’t have much time for anything else, especially relationships. She’d rather hang out with her best friend and roommate, Declan McCormick, than deal with the dating scene. But everything changes when she is in a car accident and needs someone to care for her as she heals.


Declan avoids relationships, giving him a playboy reputation that he lives up to when he puts a one-night stand ahead of a promise he made to Avery. While he may not have been the one driving the car, he feels responsible for Avery’s injuries and is determined to make it up to her by stepping into the role of caretaker.


Little did they know that the more time they spend in compromising positions, the attraction they’ve been refusing to acknowledge becomes impossible to ignore. When they finally give in to the spark between them, neither is prepared for the consequences. Their love is fragile and all it will take is a blow from the past to shatter it all.

Avery + Declan

They've been besties since college and now they're even living together.
Avery works for her family's event hotel and Declan is in finance.
The one time Avery really needs Declan to be ready on time to drive them to their class reunion/ business opportunity, he's not ready - he still has an overnight guest in his room, plus he left his car at the bar last night - so Avery has to drive alone - in her old car.
That doesn't end good and we're really mad at Declan after that...



Such a cute romance!
I loved the whole setting. The family hotel - which they took over from their grandma - with its sometimes really weird events. Not just bachelorette parties. Nope. LOL!
And Avery and Declan are so cute together. They love watching sports and hanging out - and of course the reader is the only one aware of their love for each other. It might take those two a little while to figure it out.
I loved reading this! It was funny and sparky and sweet and just adorable!
Of course Declan got on our nerves a bit with his views on relationships. How he could never have a real one because his parents were horrible examples. But he'll get there in the end of course.

Can't wait to read the other two Sparks siblings books!

WHEN SPARKS FLY was an adorable + funny + sparky + sexy + sweet BFFs-to-lovers love story! I just loved it! Run to your nearest amazon for your own Deck- he'll be sold out in no time!

ARC received for an honest review

OH no! I hate to say it, but I didn't love this book as I have most everything else I have read by Ms Hunting.

And 95% of that is down to our leading man, Declan.
Or as I have named him, Jerky McJerkerson of Jerksville.
May, that man needed a swift kick in the nads at the beginning, and an even bigger one in the latter half of the book.

What could have been a wonderful story of best friends to more turned into a story with a horribly selfish man, who made everything about himself, even when he was the one to cause all the crap in the beginning.
Gah! You may have guessed that I didn't like Declan, and you would be right!
Avery, I get why she felt the way she did, why she did  the things she did, but boy, I wanted her to tell Dec the Dic to take a hike.

The first half of the story I really adored, but the second half I was not a fan of at all. 

But this is just me, I am sure everyone else is going to love it.

Sorry Ms Hunting, but this one didn't hit with me.
