This review is from: March 26, 2018 By Kay Daniels (Kindle Edition-Goodreads)
The Island of Cambridge was still living under an age-old law where the Prince had to marry a woman from a certain bloodline by his 25th birthday or he would forfeit his birthright to be the future king. Neither Prince Sage nor Everly Stanley liked the outdated law, yet Everly was one of the girls suitable for the prince to marry. Right from the start Sage saw more to the woman hiding underneath the pomp and circumstance. The lone black painted fingernail upon her ring finger, a sign that she detested the idea of the forced marriage as much as he did, was enough to intrigue Sage the man to pursue her, but he needed to pursue Everly as himself and not under all the pretense of the Prince.
Sage was already under enough pressure to choose the right bride, but he would not make the mistake of choosing one who was only after the throne. He wanted a woman who would challenge him, be his equal, and he had a feeling if he got to know Everly without the title attached they just might be well matched. During the day Sage wore the crown for the public, but at night he ignited a spark to win over Everly’s heart.
Everly never wanted to marry royalty, it was always her mother’s dream. When Everly receives a mysterious text on a night she wants to blow off steam she doesn’t hesitate for long, unsure of how many more nights she will get now that she is in the running to be queen. Experiencing the best night of her life with a mysterious stranger it all comes to a crashing halt when she discovers she was duped by none other than Prince Sage.
How could the man who gave her the best night of her entire life also be the man who wants to take away her future?
Confused and torn she agrees to spend more time with Sage. Not the prince, but the man. The more time she spends with him, the more she grows to like him, even possibly love him, but at the end of the day he is still the prince which is a huge responsibility. What will happen when sparks fly between them?
Sparks Fly is a wonderful story of love, giving back, never giving up, and when you find your true love you never work a day in your life because you work from your heart, you work with passion, you love what you do. I loved this book for reminding me how important that is.
Whether you are a princess or a commoner you can make a difference; Be the change. I happen to have that quote pinned to my wall and tattooed upon my body, it’s one of my all time favorite quotes. To say I was exponentially moved by what Sage and Everly accomplished, I loved every moment of it and had to fight back happy-sappy tears so I could continue reading.
Thank you to every volunteer out in the world doing amazing things and continue to be the change.
Thank you Lauren for reminding me to continue to be the change I want to see in the world.
