Sparks Like Ours (Seven Shores #3) Reviews
This is the third book in the Seven Shores series and is Gia Malone’s story. Slowly by surely Gia has worked her way up the surfing ranks to being second to Elle Britton, her cheerful and annoying nemesis. Being second has put her in the spotlight and circumstances force them into having to work together.
I’m surprised by how much I like Brayden’s books every time I read one. I don’t know if it’s the covers or the titles that make me think I’m going to get an average read out of them but from the ...more
*I received this book from Bold Strokes Books and Netgalley for an honest review*
A weird thing happened when I turned to this book. I was getting flashes of the most recent previous work I’d read, unexpected as I didn’t expect any real similarity. I kind of had a ‘darn’ moment there, but the fact that both books start off with a heterosexual woman and a lesbian eyeballing each other is similar-ish, but everything else was/is different. For one, in the previous book they were eyeballing each othe ...more
This is a read addressing the question, is it possible to simultaneously have a work life and personal life. Some would say of course while others would disagree. I believe it all depends on what is acceptable and perceived as good enough. In a relationship, there can be numerous challenges with one of those being regret. As I was reading, I thought both Gia Malone and Elle Britton were interesting and likeable characters. They were easy to cheer for. I was entertained and educated as I learned ...more
Sparks Like Ours by Melissa Brayden is the third book in her Seven Shores series. While the book can be read as a stand-alone, its better to read them in order, so that it isn’t one big giant spoiler for books one and two. As always, Brayden brings something a little extra and refreshing to the romance formula that she has perfected.
Gia Malone is hitting her stride as she rises in the ranks of women’s professional surfing. The biggest thing, no person, in her way is perky Elle Britton. She’s cur ...more
I’m somewhat selective on which book to read because as emphasized by one of my favorite authors, you should never waste your time on non-quality books. Quality for me has to have at least, among others, a good story, good writing and good storytelling. With Melissa Brayden, you can never go wrong. Her stories are always fun and light. She doesn’t write heavy stories with major plot twist that will make you fall off the sofa, she writes stories that will make you stay on the sofa because you fee ...more
I want to start this review by saying how glad I am that this is not a trilogy. There is one more and oh how I cannot wait for Hadley. Don’t get me wrong Hadley’s story is going to be outstanding but aren’t all of Brayden’s stories. Let me tell you Gia Malone and Elle Britton bring the heat. Hell yes they do, the heat they bring is hot, smoking hot.
Gia and Elle are fierce competitors. Elle is the currently the number one female professional surfer. She has adoring fans and is the face of women’s ...more
There's no doubt about it, Melissa has the gift of the gab. If you're looking for a feel good story, low on angst, with a great supporting cast, this might be just the ticket.
Why not five stars? Although I was thoroughly entertained, I'm know next to nothing about surfing and found those scenes exhilarating, the relationship between the leads was wishy-washy (no pun intended) at best. I didn't feel the 'sparks' I expected to. Is that on me, who knows?
I loved catching up with the supporting cha ...more
