In the second follow up to “Chasing the Wild Sparks,” Hadley Beckett comes closer to triumphing over a reluctant Finn Wilder…
What would you do if the love of your life gave you the keys to the kingdom, but won’t let you in? At the end of her rope, Hadley grabs her intrepid boyfriend Finn Wilder’s world by the…bridge. Finally ready to end the never-ending merry-go-round that is their unknotted life together, she enlists the help of her friends to help boost her own courage. Since Finn is all about walking on the wild side but not down an aisle, Hadley challenges him to the ultimate test that will prove her more daring than the daredevil himself, hoping Finn will take notice and change his mind about making her forever his. Throwing down the irrevocable gauntlet, will Hadley celebrate supreme victory over his heart or will she accept the cruelest defeat at the very hand she holds?
You should really worry about losing this dare.”
My fingers trail up her smooth thighs, craving to touch her sweet spot, but I won’t. Still stupidly curious, I ask, “Oh, yeah? Why? What happens if I win?”“You win the dare and get to claim victory over not having sex with me.” What a win. “And if I lose?” Why in the hell did I ask that?
I warn, “Becks, take it easy today. I’m not kidding.” “Neither am I.” She lifts her shirt up above her breastBecks wickedly smirks, cocking an eyebrow. “You get a hot f*ck on the couch with your biggest fan, Finnigan.” Giving her a dark look,

I don't even know where to begin... I am so emotional over this book and I don't do the emotional thing. I leave that to Lisa. I did something with this book that I have never done before. After reading it I went to goodreads to see if every other reader out there felt like I did!
I love the characters. They are amazing. Wait let me back track... This is a series and you need to read the first and second book before you jump into this one. Back to the characters. They are amazing. I couldn't put this book down. I am truly heart broken over the ending. I hope there is a book four! Hadley and Finn just can't be done. If there isn't a book four at least this one did have an ending (sort of.) Besides the ending my only WTF moment was Morgan. Seriously. This book definitely has the unexpected, which usually doesn't happen for me either. I love a good book hangover! I just wish I was gushing with joy instead of tears over this one.
A wonderful read that you have to read! If you haven't read the series you are seriously missing out. HEA or no HEA this is one of the best reads I have ever read.
Chasing The Wild Sparks (Book 1)
What would you do if the love of your life doesn’t want the same life you do? Hadley Beckett has failed in not only her career, but as a daughter, friend, and girlfriend. Hadley’s longtime boyfriend, Finn Wilder, who is Richmond, Virginia’s local daredevil and favorite sportscaster, isn’t afraid of anything…almost. Hadley desperately wants a marriage and kids with him, the two things Finn infamously dreads. Finn pressures Hadley into moving in with him, but being traditional, she wants to be married first and she wants to stick to her beliefs, just as he clings to his own. On the other hand, Finn has tolerated Hadley’s stubbornness long enough and he’s reaching his breaking point. Fearing at 33 that she will soon be too old to have kids, Hadley wants Finn to change his mind and marry her, yet her insecurities about his public life and from his constant rebuffs have her questioning her aspirations. With conflicting advice from her friends, Hadley concludes she should take things into her own hands. But then again, Finn Wilder has his own story to tell.

Knowing she has an uphill climb ahead of her, Hadley is still determined to succeed, yet is she unwittingly destined to fail?
