Before I even met Donovan Decker, I knew his shoe size.
You see, I’d gone away for a few days, and in my haste to get out of the airport, I’d grabbed the wrong suitcase.
After checking out the expensive footwear and tailored clothes, I dialed the number on the luggage tag hoping maybe Mister Big Spender might have my bag. A deep, velvety voice answered, and as luck would have it, he had my suitcase, too.
Donovan and I met at a coffee shop to do the exchange. Turned out, it wasn’t just his voice that was sexy. The man holding my luggage was absolutely gorgeous, and we had an immediate spark.
He got me to admit that I’d snooped in his bag and then convinced me to make it up to him by letting him buy me coffee. Coffee led to dinner, dinner led to dessert, and dessert led to spending an entire weekend together. Donovan wasn’t just handsome with a panty-dropping voice. He was also funny, smart, and surprisingly down to earth for a man who wore seven-hundred-dollar shoes.
Did I mention he also did my laundry while I slept?
Definitely too good to be true.
So what did I do to repay him for his kindness?
I waited until he was in the shower, then ghosted him.
My life was too complicated for such a great guy.
In the months that passed, I thought about Donovan often. But New York City had eight million people, so what were the chances I’d run into him? Then again, what were the chances I’d run into him a year later…when I’d just started dating his boss?
The Spark by Vi Keeland is by far my favourite from her. Well I say that about every book from this author, but this time it is really true. The story between Autumn and Donovan is full of emotions, love and struggle. You get no other chance than to be consumed by their love for each other, but at the same time you cry your eyes out. But let’s start at the beginning…
We meet Autumn Wilde. I knew right from the beginning that her story is something special. She is a strong woman with some tragic background. I really had no idea how tragic… but she made it and I really admire her for that. I knew I couldn’t make through it. When you really lost your trust in something, it is very hard to trust again. That takes some courage. I love how courageous Autumn is and how she managed the situation. This is such a development through the story.
Than we have Donovan. Damn… he really is some hot lookin’ sexy lawyer. I feel in love with him right in the first chapter. I think everybody needs someone like Donovan. So protective and strong, but also so nice and soft. He loves Autumn so much and he does everything to make this relationship work. My heart went out for Donovan.
To sum this up… I cried, I laughed and I loved. This is a garantuee for reading a story from Vi Keeland. It is hot, sexy, heartbreaking and funny at the same time. If you haven’t read a book from Vi Keeland, I suggest you start with this one. And I mean… Look at the cover…. HOT!!! #nomorewordsneeded
