Publisher's Summary

Charming, hilarious, and emotional...When Sparks Fly is Helena Hunting at her very best!

Avery Spark is living her best life. Between her friends, her sisters, and Spark House, the event hotel her family owns, she doesn’t have much time for anything else, especially relationships. She’d rather hang out with her best friend and roommate, Declan McCormick, than deal with the dating scene. But everything changes when she is in a car accident and needs someone to care for her as she heals.

Declan avoids relationships, giving him a playboy reputation that he lives up to when he puts a one-night stand ahead of a promise he made to Avery. While he may not have been the one driving the car, he feels responsible for Avery’s injuries and is determined to make it up to her by stepping into the role of caretaker.

Little did they know that the more time they spend in compromising positions, the attraction they’ve been refusing to acknowledge becomes impossible to ignore. When they finally give in to the spark between them, neither is prepared for the consequences. Their love is fragile, and all it will take is a blow from the past to shatter it all.

A Macmillan Audio production from St. Martin's Griffin.

Simple, sweet, best friends-to-lovers!

Avery and Dylan have been friends and roommates since college. When Avery is injured after an accident, Dylan takes on the role of her caretaker, the new proximity highlights feelings they’ve never addressed. Eventually Avery is ~frustrated~ and Dylan is the perfect person to help her with all her needs. The TikToks write themselves!

I enjoyed this, but the beginning had a bit too much “I’m not like other girls” energy for 2021. The third act conflict was predictable and shallow, and for such a steamy premise the ~scenes~ didn’t go very far. I also wish there was more discussion about disability even with Avery’s temporary disability. Overall, this was some steamy fluff, exactly what the doctor ordered!
3.5 stars!

Great story but...

I love Helena Hunting books she always has amazing Narrators. However my only criticism is it can be somewhat predictable. Boy meets girl they start an amazing relationship then some stupid miscommunication happens and they break up 🙄 yes I love how they come back together I just wish I didn't always know going in that once the relationship started at some point they were going to break up over something stupid.

Friends to Lovers Perfection!!

When Sparks Fly by Helena Hunting was such a passionate, fun, and swoony slow burn friends to lovers story. Declan and Avery were easy characters to fall in love with, and had me willing and wishing for these two to finally give into their desires, learn to trust each other, and find their own HEA together.

Stella Bloom and Jason Clarke narrate this audio, and are so, so good together! Stella Bloom is amazing performing all of Avery's vulnerabilities, frustrations, determination, pain, and passion. Jason Clarke completely stole my heart with his performance of Declan. Jason made you feel all of Declan's guilt, hesitancy, lust, trust, and love in his narration. Both narrators had me completely captivated with their talented performances.

Overall I adored everything about this book! In this book you get some hilarious hobby horsing, forced proximity, steamy shower times, two best friends who may be a bit blind to love, challenging and vulnerable situations, slow burn perfection, sweet and sassy sisters, and a whole lot of love! Thank you Helena Hunting, for another amazing, heartwarming story that left a huge, goofy grin on my face.

Love STARTS with "I love you." Then the hard part

I love that this story doesn't end when the characters admit their love. It continues through the challenges that follow and which couples have to work through to get to true "happiness ever after."

Meh

I LOVE Helena Hunting but this book was just alright to me. The reviews made it sound like this book would exceed my expectations, and maybe if this was the first Helena Hunting book I listened to it would have.

Truth be told, I dislike Jason Clarke as a reader & I think that may have a lot to do with why I didn’t get super into this book. He’s too breathy and very “mature” sounding. His voice never fits the sexy, muscular, standoffish men that Helena describes. Instead I picture Jason Bateman, which is fine for a 40+ male, but not someone who was written in at 28 years old.

All in all, the book had a decent story line but was VERY predictable. Good luck to future readers!

best friends to true love

This story is written to show the life of Avery and Declan's years of friendship and underlined love. it was not easy, since Declan has trust & relationship issues due to his parents. It was a journey to find his way. The narrators were perfect. I love Jason Clarke

There's 8 hours and 32 minutes I won't get back

firstly I have t ask why was this in romantic comedy section, its about as funny as a natural disaster!

Sorry but it's just dull and predictable, thinking back not much actually happened, sorry Helena but you were off your game when you wrote this one.

Normally Helena hunting's books are terrific, which I guess in a weird way makes this even more disappointing, I can't think of a single thing notable in this book or positive to say about it

Pure Romance

This book is the first book of Helena Hunting's that i have read outside of the Pucked series.

And it didn't disappoint. Pure Romance with a small heart break pushed in there.

Worth the wait of this book being released.
