In A Little Spark by Amy K. McClung, meeting Jillian at his brother's wedding is a pleasant surprise for Sam, but the pair don't get off to the best start. However, Sam isn't about to let a little miscommunication stop him from pursuing a relationship with the woman that tempts him more than any woman ever has. But when something big happens that leaves Sam needing to find a way to prove to Jillian she deserves to be happy, will his efforts be for nothing or will the pair achieve their happy ever after?

What a fun, attention-grabbing read Ms. McClung has penned in this read, which had me hooked from the very beginning, as the hero is determined to show his brother a good time before he gets married but still be the responsible one that gets him home and ready for the big day. Will Sam be a good best man and manage to get his brother to his wedding on time? However, it was from the moment the hero and heroine come face-to-face for the first time that had me smiling, as Sam doesn't make the best first impression and then when they meet again, he's determined to win Jillian over because there's something about her that he's intrigued by. Will Jillian give Sam a chance?

As for the dialogue, it was intense due to the main characters back stories and everything this couple face on their journey to happy ever after including what happens to one of them in their career and whether the hero can win the heroine over. Moreover, the heroine is strong, brave, hard-working and I loved how much of a challenge she provides the hero. Then again, her previous relationship taught her to be extra cautious and I could understand why she gives the hero a hard time in the beginning, considering the first time they meet and he wasn't at his best. While the hero, he also has been through tough times with an ex that was a self-centered woman that didn't deserve him, but I liked that he was willing to give another woman a chance because Jillian is good for him. I also liked the hero's charm and how he proves to the heroine that she has nothing to be jealous of because she's the woman for him. Yet, what I liked most of all about the hero was the close relationship he had with his brother and sister-in-law and how they offer advice that he needs when things get tough with Jillian. 

Overall, Ms. McClung has delivered a superb read in this book where the chemistry and romance between this couple was delightful; and the ending had me loving the hero's words to convince Jillian that she deserves to be happy after what happens. I also liked the decision the heroine made when it came to her career, especially with the surprise she has for the hero. I would recommend A Little Spark by Amy K. McClung, if you enjoy the opposites attract trope or books by authors Stacy Borel, Kim Karr, Marie Harte and Marquita Valentine.
