I just wanted these two to have a happy life. I did beta read this book while it's cover was in development and I'll admit that I had my own ideas about the cover, so I was really excited to see what the actual cover looked like! I can't wait for Carissa's book, she is a great secondary character, an amazing friend and she definitely needs her story to be told. She's addicted to Starbucks, Coach purses, and wearing yoga pants. The more painful the better. It didn't sit right with me. They are fictional,but Velaney is certainly some woman in the world,who has lived the same pain.
I need her to get her happily ever after. By disguising himself, Aeneas resembles trickster Greeks such as Sinon and Ulysses. Now this book is super steamy and sexy. Does Velaney and Eric stay together? Or will their love crash and burn? When Velaney makes a difficult decision she could easily tear a lot of new relationships apart. Spark is the story of Velaney Rose Willis and Carissa Wright, her best friend, are roommates in an apartment after graduating from college. I don't want to spoil anything because the book is going to be released in a a few months but I can say that the book picks up a few weeks after the events of Shimmer and burn.
He had red hair just like me, so of course I was interested. I love a book where there isn't a big time gap. I had no idea what to really expect with the plot, but the author definitely blew me away! Eric and Velaney start off right where we left them in book one on the plane. She also expresses a desire for revenge, an impulse we see fueling her actions at times throughout the rest of the story. The book moved along at a great pace, had interesting characters that you fall in love with and want to see overcome all obstacles in their way and the story was fabulous.
To see into his thinking, to see who he is not just through Velaney's eyes. Luke held Sunshine in the hallway; she was white and limp and just. Eric also wants to Velaney to know that he will always be with her, even though she may push him away. But it's clear that there's more to Eric than meets the eye. It gives you the truth;yet the truth can be ugly. Spark and Burn are 2 very emotional and deep books,that speak the truth. I would highly recommend this book to anyone and everyone.
It's as if everything we've been through up to this point no longer matters. In this book we also see a much more dominant side to Eric than we did in the first book. Both characters grow and change so much in these two books, and I enjoyed seeing their relationships evolve and the intricate steps they had to take for it. There are monsters in Avinea, and I have the ability to stop them. North is now engaged to Princess Bryn and Faris finds her torn.
There he will get a new kingdom — and a new wife. He says not to trust anything having to do with the Greeks. I never thought of it like that before. A prophet told them to sacrifice one of their own, and Sinon was chosen. The few people who live there hurry out and rush to door, begging him to help them. All the while, Vi's feelings for Neely grow sharper, the stakes higher, and the truth harder to pin down. And I didn't really like that because my mind would already move past the scene by the time it was mentioned again in Eric's view.
Like seriously stop it, all that drama must be so damn exhausting! It truly amazes me how my body desires him as much as it does. I thought it was only Velaney who has a lot of issues. Its sad to see it finish I want more Eric. Maybe Brodie would kill me now. We quickly snatch up our luggage and head to where his family is meeting us. The part that hurt the most was when I woke up feeling the love I felt for him in my dream. Eric rescued Velaney in a fire and the ups and downs were beyond intense.
Just when you think they could get their happily ever after…pasts collide and merge together…will they fight for what they want? He determines to kill her, but Venus appears and explains that blame for the war belongs with the gods, not Helen. I rooted for these two to finally get together and just love! I know that it's not going to be about Velaney and Eric, but I still can't wait to read it! I loved Spark a lot and I didn't think it was possible to love Eric any more until I read Burn. Or is he truly following her everywhere she goes? With sequels you sometimes loose the feeling of the first and it's like ok what happened I'm not in it. He is exactly what Velaney needs. There are so many twists, surprises and edge of your seat moments in this book that it makes it extremely difficult to put down.
Were you surprised at their connection to the story and the Redding boys? I feel like we got to know Eric more even though in book 1 there weren't indications about Eric having a rough past so this was a surprise. Four times the horse jars on its way into the city, and four times the weapons of the Greeks inside clatter. I said it before and I'll say it again. The Trojans show him pity and ask the meaning of the great horse. I took the redeye to Seattle that night.
