    3. I'm going to be 100% honest with my review here. I just need to get this out. REALITY ABUSE OCCURS IN THIS BOOK. PROCEED WITH CAUTION If I could use two words to describe this bookIt's amazing how one book can have two totally opposing feelings from one minute to the other. It had me feeling a little bit book bipolar.The book starts out with a bangor a spark, if you will. Our heroine Velaney is asleep and wakes up to a smoke filled apartment. All of a sudden, in enters our hot Hero, fireman Eric [...]

    4. 2 starsSpark is a novel with great potential, that unfortunately was not used even in 10%. This book could easily mesmerize me and be fantastic read but author decided to go another road and this spectacular premise could not handle it, it was just crashed by things that weren’t necessary. Fantastic blurb made me believe Spark will rock my world, but unfortunately it only made me frustrated and sad. People who supposed to help author with eliminating unnecessary things haven’t done their job [...]

    7. Ok, first of all I want to thank Brooke for giving me an advanced copy of this book to review. Let me say this I absolutely loved this book, and I could relate to Velaney in so many ways, due to the both of us having a horrible thing happening to the both of us in the past. Velaney (aka, Lane, aka Laney aka Vel) has a damaged past and because of that she shuts out everyone except her best friend since birth Carissa. Then one night her life is changed when a sexy firefighter named Eric saves her. [...]

    8. :: 4.2 Sparkling Stars :: What happens when a sexy firefighter meets the girl of his dreams only to find out she has to overcome emotional demons before they can be together? Overall this book was very enjoyable. The writing style is superb, the plot is original, and the characters are amazingly complex. I found myself gasping in some places and tearful in others. This book allows readers to really get close to the characters- something that is very hard to come by in many books. While it does e [...]

    9. First and foremost, thank you Brooke for giving us an advanced copy of this book to review. I absolutely loved it! Velaney has a damaged past, the only one she lets in is her best friend since birth Carissa. Then one night a handsome firefighter saves her, and she doesn’t want feelings for him, he’s not someone she thinks she can be with. Enter Alex… a sweet guy she thinks she can be with, problem is, she can’t deny her feelings for Eric.Things heat up, attraction is undeniable, and thei [...]

    10. "You would never be just another girl, Velaney. You are the thee girl."I'm now officially a massive fan of Brooke Cumberland! The synopsis for this book is pretty vague, so when the author came to me about a Book Trailer for Spark I knew I had to read this book first to get more information about it and make her the perfect trailer! What I got from this book blew me away! It was so freaking good! It was actually SO much more than good! Words like phenomenal, amazing, mind blowing come to mind wh [...]

    11. I loved this! Thanks to Brooke who sent me an ARC, for review. Where do I start? For one I was so nervous about reading this because I LOVE the Riverside Trilogy so much that I was worried I would be not as excited about this and WOW was I wrong. Velaney, first is a great name!!! She lives with her best friend Carissa who is so great! One of the best secondary characters I have ever read! After Eric rescues Laney from a fire things get even HOTTER. HA HA Sorry can't help the fire jokes here. He [...]

    12. Southern, built, tattoos, piercing and a firefighterally what more could you ask for? Eric is a Boston firefighter from Texas who is not what you expect him to be. Velaney is a quiet, perceived as innocent, strong and determined. Carissa is her best friend and her family and the one of the very few people who knows about her past.Things seem to spark for Eric the first time he met Vel, saving her for the first of many times. I wasn't so sure about him in the beginning but you got to see the real [...]

    13. First off let me say thank you so much to Brooker the opportunity of receiving the ARC for this book. So here goes one dissapointment in the book, the only one is that it wasn't longer lol this was one amazing read from page one until I got to the end and swiped like four times saying NOOOOO thee has to be more! There is nothing sexier than a firefighter with tats and a nipple ring. The chemistry from the start with Lane and Eric is clear. I won't give any spoilers but the steam factor is holy s [...]

    14. I could not put this down!I received an ARC of this novel and I got hooked after reading a few pages! Velaney is such a likeable person with a horrible past she has tried to put it behind her. As for Eric, who wouldn't want a man like him: a southern and sexy firefighter! Velaney has a wonderful friend and roommate, Carissa, who is very funny and also is pretty much Velaney's family and voice of reason. Eric and Velaney meet when there is a fire on their floor of their apartment building. Eric r [...]

    15. I didn't see the warning on the series but if you have any issues with childhood sexual abuse proceed with caution!! Velaney is a closed off, shy, sexy but doesn't flaunt it, kind of chick that has a past that she runs from. She as built walls around her heart until the day this crazy, sexy, hot firefighter named Eric saves her from her burning apartment building. From that day forward no matter how hard both of them tried to fight it they could not deny the SPARK. This specific video review (yo [...]

    16. I love Brooke Cumberland's books. I am patiently waiting for the third book in her Riverside Trilogy to come out so I decided to read SPARK in the interim. WOWHOLY SMOKES and everything that is hot and burning passion. V & E have a chemistry that sizzles on the page and leaves you wanting more. There were so many twists and surprises in this book that it bordered on a suspense/mystery novel as much as a romance but that is what kept me turning the pages. I need to download BURN now to find o [...]

    17. I was extremely lucky to have the chance to review the advance copy of this awesome book provided by Brooke.I loved this book. It was awesome and I cannot wait to read number two.Once again Brooke has created an interesting world with interesting characters that you fall in love with.I cannot put into words how this book made me feel, just that everyone should experience the magic of Brooke Cumberland. I know that I have and cannot wait for the future works that she will be creating.Awesome.

    18. I haveto say first that i am so happy to havegotten an ARC of this book! I absolutely loved it and i couldn't get enough of Velany and Eric! I cannot wait for book 2 and book 1 isn't even offically out yet. i read this story in about three hours because the charcters would not let me put them down. It kept me guessing until the very last page. I cannot say anymore how much i loved this story!

    19. Brooke you have done it yet again, absolute perfection. It was so hard for me to put this book down when I had too. Its a book you could finish in one night given the chance. I can't wait until book 2!

    20. I really enjoyed this book. I really like the character of Valaney. I really wish we learn more about Eric maybe in the other book but he was also great.

    21. I really enjoyed this book. Had sweet moments and some steamy ones! Eric was a hottie! I look forward to more!!

    22. I put of reading this book for one reason only…I heard it had a cliff hanger. And that was partly right. Because actually, where the epilogue ends, I was satisfied with the ending. Ok, yes. There were unanswered questions. But as far as I was concerned, the couple met, got together, faced drama & issues, broke up and got back together. I’m all good. But alas. That’s not the end.There was definite drama in this book. Velaney came from a messed up childhood. I felt bad for her. Initially [...]

    23. This book had me laughing in the first few pages, thanks to a lace teddy and Scooby Doo! Velaney can't bring herself to say curse words, and it's adorable to listen to her thoughts. But in the very beginning of the story, she finds herself up close and personal with one very hot, very sexy firefighter named Eric. Heaven knows I wish I had me an Eric!! He's Velaney's knight in shining armor, her guardian angel, her protector all rolled up in one hot, muscled package! But Velaney isn't as quick to [...]

    24. What is not to love when a book contains a hot, tattooed, southern firefighter and that same firefighter also has a piercing and drawl that will make you weak in the knees! Brooke Cumberland weaves us through a love story that is electric and heart breaking all in one book. This is a 4 star read!Velaney is a twenty something, strong young woman focusing on her independence from her family and enjoying life with her roommate and best friend. Eric is the southern gentleman that unbeknownst to Vela [...]

    25. I hear the hero is tattooed, pierced and a firefighter YUM! When your past controls your future, how do you move forward?Velaney Wills knows about that all too well. Weak, powerless, and fearing the one person who has hurt her the most…can she overcome the barriers to move forward?Being saved by a muscled Godsend was never on her agenda, but when firefighter, Eric Reilley comes into her life unexpectedly, everything changes. Velaney has never felt loved or cared for, and her past prevents her [...]

    26. Not much of any Sparks going on at all. Plot was blah, I had no connection with the characters at all and found myself bored and skimming at already chapter 6. Eric was creepy and a bit stalkerish. Laney was childish and whiny. The roommate Clarissa was so annoying and I wanted to take her in a dark room and beat her with this book. And live a little and grow a pair and say a curse word!

    27. Spark (Spark #1) by Brooke Cumberland Adult Contemporary. 1st in a series, does not stand alone.  Oh how I wish I knew that Spark by Brooke Cumberland had a bit of a cliffy at the end! It's not a relationship cliffhanger, so it's not quite as bad, but I already had books scheduled to read after, and couldn't take on the next book. I will eventually though, because I want to read more. I really enjoyed the book, and it sucks that I didn't have the freedom to continue, and won't for a few months. [...]
