Sparks Like Ours (Seven Shores #3) Reviews
I’ve tried to write four reviews on this book and it just isn’t working. I end up getting a little...grrrr...and how in the world can I be grrrr when Brayden books are so sticky sweet that I feel like I’m drowning in a cotton candy machine? I have nothing much to add to the reviews except to say that I wasn’t a fan of this one. Even though it’s supposed to have some ‘know what’s important’ moral, the entire (view spoiler)[this-is-how-love-affects-your-job-performance-you-silly-emotional-women (h ...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
A NetGalley review
Sparks Like Ours is Melissa Brayden’s nth book, but unfortunately she seems to be losing her touch as a storyteller. This book is nowhere near the quality of How Sweet It Is, Waiting in the Wings or Strawberry Summer.
Brayden’s characterisation is usually quite impeccable, but Gia Malone and Elle Britton seem incomplete as characters. There is a half-hearted attempt to posit one as extremely organised and the other as messy, but it’s not a convincing attempt and doesn’t even fin ...more
This is the third episode of the Seven Shores quartet, formed by Isabel, Autumn, Gia and Hadley. Of the two previous books, the first tells the relationship between Isabel and Taylor and the second develops the relationship between Autumn and Kate. So there will only be Hadley to match (this last chapter has already been announced on the publisher's page, to be published in October 2018)
For those who do not want to read the complete series, each of the books can be read independently without hav ...more
This book did not excite me or reach me at all, there wasn't anything that particularly stood out. It's almost like I skimmed the book. All of Brayden's characters blend into each other. Despite the fact that their personalities are somewhat different, her formulaic approach to these stories negates all that. She's reached Radclyffe levels of formulaic now. Also it was clear that Brayden was setting up for the next book with Hayden. But I've never been interested in reading about her. Since the ...more
Another fantastic novel from the pen of the formidable, Melissa Brayden.
Gia Malone has worked for years to climb the surfing championship ladder and she’s finally one win away from being number one in the world. The only person standing in her way is the current number one, Elle Britton.
When Elle and Gia are thrown together in a new marketing campaign they begin to let their competitive guards down, ultimately seeing each other in a way they never could before. But when surfing has always been n ...more
