Running the Spark House, a hotel/event space that has been in her family for years, has been Avery Spark’s lifelong dream. After years of working hard and making personal sacrifices, Avery and her two younger sisters have turned the Spark House into the premier destination in Colorado Springs. Avery is living her best life—she works with her sisters and loves every minute of it, she has a great group of friends, and she lives in a fantastic condo with her best friend Declan. She might not have any love in her life, but she’s happy.
But everything comes to a screeching halt when Avery is in a car accident, leaving her immobile for weeks. After nearly losing Avery, Declan insists that he will be the one to take care of her while she recovers. However, as Declan becomes Avery’s caretaker, lines begin to blur.
Avery and Declan have been best friends since college and always had an attraction to one another, but when she ended up dating his best friend, Sam, they successfully stamped down any feelings they may have ever had for one another. Now, as Declan and Avery spend more time together, they each begin to wonder what would’ve happened if she’d dated him instead of Sam. What starts as a friend helping out another friend turns into foreplay and, before they realize it, they recognize how deeply they care for one another. But when things get serious their past threatens to destroy everything they have built.

I thought this book was a cute read. It was a little slow in the beginning, but once I got in to it, I couldn’t put it down. I adored the friends to lovers romance with Declan and Avery. I loved watching the two of them grow and try to navigate their way through their feelings for one another. That being said, the road to happily ever after wasn’t an easy one for these two. Their story was filled with romance, family drama, and misunderstandings. I was curious to see where this story would go and how it would all come together in the end.
When Sparks Fall is a sweet friends to lovers romance. While I had an issue with the pacing in the beginning, I think this book is a solid and enjoyable read.
