Blurb
Flames almost
killed this ex-firefighter. And the sparks he’s feeling now might burn what’s
left of his heart.
Sabrina
He was a charming
S.O.B. when I dated him two years ago, but the Logan Carter who arrives at
Bad@ss Builds is a shadow of the one I knew. This Logan is surly, bitter, and
scarred—evidence of the fire he survived marks him both inside and out.
Does he really not
remember me?
Logan
I’m upright and
functioning. Isn’t that enough? I shouldn’t even be alive. And I definitely
don’t have time for the bubbly, gorgeous woman from my past who can do better
than me.
No matter how much
I wish I could be the man she remembers.
*Can be read as a
standalone

Sunny Shelly’s Review: 5 Stars

I was hooked on Logan and Sabrina from the first chapter. They’ve only been dating a few months when Logan leaves to be a firefighter. While she doesn’t know why he’s ghosted her, Logan was injured on the job and spent over a year in recovery. Now, it’s two years later when he reappears in Sabrina’s life and pretends not to know her. But Sabrina isn’t backing down this time.

I’m a sucker for a wounded hero, and Logan hit all the marks! He is carrying such an immense amount of guilt over the fire that injured him and caused his friend’s death. He’s grumpy and moody, and has pushed everyone away. But he still yearns to be with Sabrina, even though he thinks she deserves more than the shell of the man that he is today.

Sabrina is a spitfire, and I loved her! Her life becomes quite the dumpsterfire in this book, but she keeps on keeping on, tenacious and determined. There’s something she hasn’t told Logan about what happened after he left town, and the way that secret blows up in her face leads to Logan ending things. By the time he finally gets his ish together, will it be too late for Sabrina to give him a third chance?

Spark is the 3rd book in the Burns Brothers series, but it is a standalone. I have not read the other books in this series, and I didn’t feel like I was missing pieces of Sabrina’s backstory. Her cousin/brothers are hysterical, and this huge family is all up in each other’s business all the time. I loved this cast of characters, and I’m definitely interested in reading more! This story was so well-written, and I just felt everything that both Sabrina and Logan were going through.

I received an advanced copy and voluntarily left a review.
