SO excited to have been given the chance to ARC review this for Brooke.
It jumps right in where Spark left off. Thank goodness for that because I was left slack-jawed from the ending.
This book took Eric and Velaney to a whole new level. Not even just with Brooke's writing growing and blossoming to the amazing thing that it is, but with the characters growing themselves as the story is told.
We get a lot more from Eric in this book and I loved it. I felt that it really added an extra layer to their love story. We drove head first into Velaney's past, but Eric was still a mystery to us. Well in Burn the walls are knocked down. We creep into his past and face his demons head on. It's definitely a heart gripper though, so be ready.
Velaney. Well me and her had some issues in this book but thankfully Eric stayed by her side and kept her looking towards the light. I mean as if life hadn't already thrown some real mountains in her way, more just keep popping up. These one though, they really test the strength of E&V's Love. Velaney only knows one way to fight her demons, and that's to run. This definitely throws some curves in their already mountainous path but Eric ever battles on.
I didn't think I could enjoy a book as much as Spark, but I did. Burn was twice as good and sealed this series fate as an ever recommended in my book. It is fantastic. It is wonderfully written and really keeps you entwined. The dialogue is especially easy to jump into and understand. I don't have any complaints other than I want more.
Good thing Brooke is giving us another glimpse into this world! Carissa is set to get her own book, and I cannot WAIT!
Thanks for writing this Brooke. It was a wonderful and certainly spark-filled read!!
Just when Velaney thinks she is safe again…her worst nightmare comes back to haunt her.
Eric is dealing with his own insecurities as he tries to accept Velaney’s decision to help the enemy…can he get past it? Will they be there for each other in the end?
He struggles to step aside and trust Velaney...but will his past keep him from doing so? Can he let go in order to move forward?
Velaney and Eric had their fair share of ups and downs in SPARK…they love was undeniable and intense. Just when you think they could get their happily ever after…pasts collide and merge together…will they fight for what they want?
Or will their love crash and burn
