The Spark by Jules Wake

The Spark


Jess is falling for Sam.

Sam is falling for Jess.

But it seems life will do whatever it takes to make them fall apart.

When Jess and Sam lock eyes at a party, a spark ignites. The spark. But love at first sight isn’t like the movies, especially when Sam’s ex, Victoria, is determined to make their honeymoon period a living hell.

Is love at first sight enough?


I relish Jules Wake’s books. Her plot building is hopeful and genuine with unforgettable setbacks that make her extremely captivating characters take a good look at their lives and move forward.

Jess is a compassionate and selfless person who puts the happiness of others before her own. She has supported her mother for years after her father left her for another woman, but not everything is all it seems. With that being said she meets the man of her dreams and realizes she has become the other woman, although they didn’t start dating until a month after Sam broke up with his ex. Jess is the woman Sam’s friend’s ostracize and his parents think is a mistake.  Jess takes that knowledge to analyze her relationship with her mother and her estranged father.

Jess and Sam are so good for each other. Sam is an honorable man and completely in love with Jess which he proves each time he stands up for her with his ex, with his parents, and with his so-called friends. But Victoria, Sam’s ex-girlfriend, is devastated and unhinged. So much so she puts Sam and Jess’s relationship at risk with some very unforgivable and deplorable actions.  All I can say is shame on all of Sam’s family and friends who don’t support and trust him to make his own choices. 

In conclusion, Jess comes to terms with her past so she can move on with her future. And boy does she give Victoria and her friends the tongue-lashing they deserve in the name of love. Best ending ever!!

I recommend this very realistic and emotional love story filled with love, forgiveness, and an ending worth waiting for.

Please also take a look at my review for The Saturday Morning Park Run and Notting Hill in the Snow.

Thank you to Ms. Wake for giving me the opportunity to read this book with no expectation of a positive review.
