** Review** The spark – Sylvie Stewart

When your back is against the wall, can you change the person life’s experiences have molded you to be?

Fiona Pierce is many things to many people. Dutiful daughter to her loving parents, fiercely loyal friend to her very tolerant bestie, half-assed employee to her laundry list of bosses, and dedicated fashion goddess and spreader of good cheer to the world at large. But Fiona is hiding something behind her irresistible smile – something she’s determined to keep to herself.

Mark Beckett doesn’t do complicated. Saddled with lingering baggage from his childhood, Mark sails through life one girl at a time – with frequent gym breaks in between. He likes his life just how it is and doesn’t see any need to change his work-hard/play-hard attitude.

When an unexpected blast from the past threatens to turn his family’s life upside down, Mark finds help in the unlikeliest of places – specifically the pint-sized princess who has a knack for pushing his buttons.

Can you overcome your fears and embrace the happiness you might just deserve? And, perhaps more importantly, can you really fall in love with someone who is so damn insufferable?

Find out in The Spark by Sylvie Stewart.

The Spark is the much-awaited second book in the Carolina Connections Series from Sylvie Stewart. It can be read as a standalone with a HEA.

5 stars!!!!!
Another fantastic read by Sylvie Stewart. I love the way this book draws you in from the start and has you wanting more and it was a little bit different.
Fiona is stuck living with the worries of the past while Mark is suddenly wanting a future he’s always tried to avoid. Fiona lost her childhood fighting off leukemia now she lives life as an adult waiting for the other shoe to drop. She doesn’t hold down a relationship as she doesn’t think she has anything to offer someone long term and she doesn’t want anyone to think she needs looking after. Until Mark, she trys so hard to fight the attraction between them especially as they have the same circle of friends but in an effort to protect Marks mum the two are bought closer together and they give into their attraction. Marks never wanted a relationship but Fiona isn’t like the women he usually spends time with and he finds himself wanting more but he knows Fiona is reluctant to get into a relationship he just doesn’t know the reasons behind it. When everything comes out in the open Marks willing to do anything to convince Fiona to give them a chance but will she take a leap of faith for a chance at happiness?
