JUST ONE SPARK by Jenna Bayley-Burke

It took me a long time to read this book.  It took me a few months and I have now completed this book.  This is mostly in part because the book did not turn out the way I thought it would have and it bored me with its weirdness. Here is what I mean.

Hannah Daniels does not find it weird to sit and read an erotic book whilst waiting for her clothes to wash in a public laundry-mart.

Hannah was just getting to one of the good parts of her current book when a handsome stranger distracts her.  He was very handsome and she felt a connection the only thing that stopped her from liking him is the wedding ring on his finger.

Disgusted by him, Hannah quickly leaves the Laundry hoping to never see the lying bastard again.

Mason McNally cannot stop kicking himself for the major screw up with the girl of his dreams.  He was wearing a ring to help his brother with a study of his and she misunderstood. Needing to find her again, Mason looks high and low but cannot find her.

Would Mason find his dream girl and clear up the misunderstanding?  If he finds her would Hannah want anything to do with him?  Find out in this confusing and weird story of Just one Spark.

When I read the description of this book, it sounded like something like something that I would totally enjoy, but sadly it was not meant to be.

+Jenna Bayley-Burke tried to write a book about a girl who escapes into a book to escape reality, but did not quite make it.  There was hardly any mention of books and this made me sad.  Also the main character, Hannah, was a psycho. 

That sounds harsh, but it's true.  She takes everything that people say and twist it into making it sound bad.  She also has the uncanny ability to make things seem against her than with her.

Hannah has a bad habit of throwing herself at Mason and when the glow of sex is gone, accuses him of only coming over for sex.  I was like, WHAT, for most of the book.  This happened a lot in the book.  She claims she wants to get to know him, but when they start talking and he ask an uncomfortable question, she's ready to drop her clothes, have sex with him, and then blame it all on him.

She needs some serious help.  He accepts her, but she does not accept him? NO.  There is nothing bad about liking sex, it's just bad when you use it as a weapon and accuse the other person of what you yourself are doing in the relationship.  I think I gave too much away, but oh well.  I loved Mason, but Hannah needs to go and get some therapy before she can deserve Mason.  

The writing in this book was not constant.  The description of the book described Hannah one way and but in reading the book she was totally different.  I liked that it had book related content in the story, but I really wished that it had more of it.  I also did not like that they kept giving reference to past boyfriends without all the details and her parents did not seem like the monsters Hannah made them out to be.

All in all, Hannah needs a reality check and she also has to get over herself.  I seriously did not like Hannah, because everything was an attack from her.  One minute she's happy and the next she's vicious.  This book was a confusion of emotions and I hope you guys can keep up.
