So, once again, I’ve read the second book in a series before reading the first. This is what happens when I don’t read a synopsis before I start a book…I’m a cover-lover. BUT…this was a lovely story, and I didn’t need to have read book 1, so that worked out well 😊!
London Spark and her two sisters own Spark House, a hotel that hosts fantastic events. After breaking up with her boyfriend, her sisters and her head out for some drinks. When a smooth-talking, sexy man hits on her, she hands back his number, but Jackson Holt is not to be deterred and tells her basically, if it’s meant to be, the universe will bring them back together…
And of course, it does.
Jackson’s company hires London to hose an event, and when Jackson sees her, he can’t get her out of his head. I loved his love of her. He was confident and treated her with such tenderness. This is a story where the two characters try to keep the relationship profession, but I never felt frustrated at them. I appreciated the flow of the story and the timing of when they get together.
I also really enjoyed London’s sisters, which has me thinking, I definitely need to go back and read book 1 in this series now!
I would recommend this one for romance readers that enjoy an easy-sweet romance!
Where to Find This Book:
Charming, hilarious, and emotional, Starry-Eyed Love is Helena Hunting at her very best!
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.
