Having just broken up with her boyfriend, London Spark is not in the mood to be hit on. Especially not when she’s out celebrating her single status with her sisters. So when a very attractive man pays for their drinks and then slips her his number, she passes it right back to him with a ‘thanks, but no thanks’. As the business administrator for their family’s event hotel, the Spark House, London has more important things to worry about, like bringing in new clientele.
As luck would have it, a multi-million-dollar company calls a few months later asking for a meeting to discuss a potential partnership, and London is eager to prove to her sisters, and herself, that she can land this deal. Just when she thinks she has nailed her presentation, the company’s CEO, Jackson Holt, walks in and inserts himself into the meeting. Not only that, but he also happens to be the same guy she turned down at the bar a few months ago.
As they begin to spend more time together, their working relationship blossoms into something more. It isn’t until their professional entanglements are finally over, that London and Jackson are finally ready to take the next step in their relationship. But between Jackson’s secretive past and London’s struggle with her sisters, London must question where she really stands – not just with Jackson, but with the Spark House, too.

I loved the first book in this series about the Spark sisters, When Sparks Fly. And so I’ve been eagerly awaiting this second book in the series. And as much as I loved the first cover, I think this one is even better! The story itself was just as good as the first one as well, but different. While both had truly darkest night moments at the end, this one wasn’t as devastating to me as the first one. Because even though I understood London’s reasons for being upset, and knew she was right, I also knew that she could overcome it much easier with some reasonable things done.
The author also brought in some characters from her Shacking Up series, which I have not finished all of those yet. The sister dynamic in this was great because even with how they were there for each other, there was definitely realistic sister stubbornness as well as letting sister get away with things when one thought it wasn’t worth pushing anymore, but then also letting those feelings fester until they blew up.
In a way this was a bit of a Cinderella story, not exactly, but a little bit, so it was fun when that was even mentioned by the characters. I also loved the idea of all the stars that London made, and her Etsy store, all of that was so neat. Now I did have one thing that I wasn’t sure about, the whole bit about there being seasons of the tv show Survivor that were like model competitions. I mean I guess there was one or two seasons where it seemed all the “pretty people” were being kept. But that has changed. And even those pretty people are never still that pretty by the end of that show. They’re all pretty much starving almost down to skin and bones, maybe what they called the heroin-chic models?
I digress, this was a great book, and I loved it!
