Sparks Fly
By Lauren Runow
Releasing April 3rd, 2018

Everly wasn’t excited over her impending meeting with the enigmatic Prince Sage. Being one of only four women from whom the Prince gets to choose in marriage was never something she valued. Her goal was to politely and elegantly remove herself from a forced wedding due to long standing traditions. Handsome Prince or not, she won’t marry for anything but love.

Once Sage proceeds to the next candidate, Everly finally feels she can move forward with her life. On her own terms. That is, until she receives a mysterious request, asking her to solve a riddle, taking her on a night she’ll never forget.

A fervent adventure ensues, and attraction builds as the excitement of the night unfolds. Sparks fly in more ways than one just as she finds out who’s stealing her heart.

In Sparks Fly by Lauren Runow, all Everly wants in life is to marry for love and not be forced into the union, especially since she's one of four women who the prince can choose from to marry. Luckily though, the prince appears to be moving onto the next candidate and she finds she's dodged a bullet. However, when she begins receiving riddles by text, she's determined to find out who her mystery sender is. Yet, when she learns it's Prince Sage, she finds herself intrigued because he's nothing like the man she imagined him to be. Will Everly give the Prince a chance, or will the pair have to fight for their chance at happy ever after?

What a delightful and very captivating read Ms. Runow has penned in this book where emotions run high because the hero's father is a total jerk and Sage is determined to go after the woman he wants no matter what his father says; the main characters were fantastic because of their back stories and their growing relationship; and the dialogue was a wonderful combination of intense moments and playful banter that had me loving every time the hero and heroine conversed, as Prince Sage was determined to win Everly over. The way this story started had me liking the hero and heroine immediately, as Everly isn't going to let anyone force her into marriage and I liked how she isn't afraid to show how displeased she is. Will Prince Sage and his family pick up on her feelings? 

As for the dialogue, it was intense due to the main characters back stories and everything this couple go through on their journey to happy ever after and I liked that the hero would do anything to win the heroine over, even if it means facing off against his father. I also liked how the hero was different to his family in that he wasn't all about appearances. Really, he does a lot of good instead of always looking for a photo opportunity and doesn't think he's better than everyone else because he's royal. While the heroine, she's resilient, brave and I liked that she gave the hero a chance, especially once she realizes how good of a guy he is and that he's totally different to who she thought he would be. I also liked how determined she was to help him when he needs someone on his side the most. Since his life gets turned upside down because of what his father does to hopefully make the prince fall in line with the man's plans.

Overall, Ms. Runow has delivered a wonderful read in this book where the chemistry between Prince Sage and Everly was powerful; the romance is delightful and shows how good Everly is for Sage; and the ending had me sympathizing with the Prince, but had me liking what the hero and Everly do to prove he would be a great future King for his country. I would recommend Sparks Fly by Lauren Runow, if you enjoy the opposites attract trope, the enemy to lovers trope, or books by authors Vi Keeland, Penelope Ward, Natasha Madison and Emma Hart.
