Series: Spark


I, Aidan Stone, got the girl.

My beautiful Eevie is sweet and sassy, and she owns my heart like no other. I promised her, I’d always protect her, and I meant it, but shit just got serious.

Blackmail. Extortion. And Eevie is the target.

Sometimes the past comes back to haunt us. Sometimes, no matter how hard you try to distance yourself from it, it comes back and bites you on the arse. And in walks Mr Hotshot Detective, Ryan Clark, thinkin’ he can save the day and take my girl.

Well, I’ve got news for him

Review by: Sam


‘But I’ve got some tricks up my sleeve. This living-together shit is gonna be fun. Little does Eevie know I’m about to extend the ‘no clothes to bed’ rule to the whole damn house. Well, maybe the kitchen can be the exception. There are some precious bits I’d like to protect from hot splattering stuff on the stove. Especially with the way I cook.’

Spike is the follow up of Spark by the wonderfully talented Jennifer Ryder. It is so easy for me to say I was gripped from start to finish. The book contained the PERFECT HELPING OF SEXY, A WHOLE BUCKET OF HOLY JESUS CHRIST/SHIT THE BED THRILLER MOMENTS, A CHEEKY DASH OF ANGST, A SPOONFUL OF WOW, AND A WHOLE BAG OF LOVE.

I love the relationship between Aidan and Eevie because it is so real. I love their banter, the way they laugh together, the way they enjoy each other, the moments they make to keep that Spark alive, and they learn to deal with shit together. This is an amazing follow up to Spark which let me tell you, I AM A HUGE HUGE HUGE FAN OF, but this book, it makes you feel, you are totally rooting for them as a couple and want them to get their happy ever after. But Jennifer has done an absolutely superb job of throwing some drama in there for them to conquer, OH BACKUP.....HOW DID I FORGET MY MANNERS...I SWEAR IT WAS NOT ON PURPOSE.....BUT I WILL FIGHT YOU FOR HIM TOO....THE SEXY DETECTIVE RYAN CLARK....YES LADIES..YOU HEARD THAT CORRECT.. JENNIFER HAS GIFTED US A GOD DAMN DETECTIVE, SWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOON!!!!

I love the pace of Jennifer’s writing. I love the humour she includes, I love that both male and female characters have such a strong and passionate presence, and I cannot praise Jennifer enough! I loved this book and will be returning to it again and again. Congratulations to you Jennifer Ryder, what a fantastic five big beautiful star follow-up. Now I NEED ‘STRIKE’ IN MY LIFE....PRONTO!!!! GET WRTING GIRL, PATIENCE IS NOT ON MY AGENDA!!!

Spark (Spark, #1)


Today, I feel like a king with a convincing win under my belt, and the beauty on my arm is the envy of most of the guys here. Life can’t get any better.
I introduce Eevie around. She shakes hands like she means it, holds her own in conversation, and gets the occasional laugh out of guys I didn’t think had a sense of humour. She must’ve been taking note of some of the ins and outs of motocross, having the balls to ask some interesting questions.
Take note, people: funny, intelligent woman with the guts and looks to match. That confidence is heartbreak material. They’re practically drooling over her. It’s almost pathetic. If they thought they had half a chance, they’d be down on their knees in a millisecond begging for a shot.
Boys, it ain’t gonna happen. Every delectable inch of her is mine, including her heart.
Talking with some of the support crew, Jones edges his way into the conversation, standing a little close to Eevie for my liking. He puffs out his chest, and hooks his thumbs through the front loops of his jeans. Blonde hair and a baby face, he’s a pretty boy. A mummy’s boy. From the way he carries on, he probably got everything he ever wanted as a kid, and had all the latest gear. Mum could barely afford to buy my jerseys, and when she did, I wore them until I outgrew them. I had no choice but to make them last. Last round Jones threw a tantrum like a three year old over something stupid. He got what he wanted, though. Disgusting. Not that I give a shit where he’s come from; at least I know I don’t carry on like a fucking twit.
My eyes are on Jones, and he knows it. Damn it, if he doesn’t like pushing my buttons, and having Eevie here he’s gonna do anything he can to push. If he weren’t on my team I’d barely give him the time of day. He’d be half an alright bloke if he wasn’t so self-absorbed.
He acts like he’s engrossed in what Eevie’s talking about, but his eyes travel down her chest, and even lower, as if he’s trying to rip her clothes off purely with the power of his mind. It heats my blood more than it should.
“When you’re ready for a real man, Eevie, come knockin’ on my door,” Jones says. His eyes dart in my direction before resting back on Eevie’s tits. Fucking douchebag.
Eevie frowns, and purses her glossy lips. “Sorry, I don’t understand. If I’m ready for a real man, why would I knock on your door? Wouldn’t I just go home?” She bats those long lashes. That’s my girl.
Everybody erupts into a fit of laughter, me louder than most. Jones shakes his head, and playfully punches me in the arm. “You’re killin’ me, Aidan. You win today, and I hate you for it, and now your woman’s gonna break my heart,” he says, faking a southern American accent. He clutches his chest as if wounded, and winks at Eevie.
I take a long swig of my beer. “Life’s a bitch, Jones.” Now fuck off.
