More Than a Spark – TWiT Book Review719

Spread the love

A pop-punk keyboardist carries an unrequited love for his firefighting best friend. With a newfound self-discovery, will their friendship ignite into something more?

Milo Richardson

I was stupid and fell hard for my straight best friend, but he couldn’t find out. Our friendship is too important to destroy it with my feelings. When he took a firefighting job two hours away, it made my life easier and I satisfied myself with gig hookups. Now he’s transferred home and I’m back to where I was, longing for him. Even if he’s looking at me differently, do I dare take a chance?

Ryder Scott

I’m transferring to a fire department back home to be close to my family and my best friend. But the guy I hooked up with a few weeks ago is warning me to come clean with Milo and tell him about my questioning. Am I queer? I’m not sure yet. But Milo’s presence lights an unfamiliar fire.

When did he start captivating me? When did his scent become a craving? More than my heart is taking notice. Would it be so bad if we became more than friends? And will he stick around after he graduates college in a few months?

Christie Gordon: Bringing the Happy Ever After

I just finished reading my second book by Christie Gordon, and let me tell you, it left me in such a happy mood. Boy, does she know how to bring the happy ever after!

Although I must confess, I liked the first book (actually the fifth in the series) “Protect My Heart” (see my review here) a little better. It had more drama and intrigue with a bodyguard and a few gangsters, creating some great action.

More Than a Spark: A Love That Lasts a Lifetime

This second book (sixth in the series) “More Than a Spark” was about the love that lasts a lifetime. Milo Richardson and Ryder Scott were made for each other, and it took one of them way too many years to realize it. But when he finally does, nothing could ever destroy that love.

Christie Gordon provides pages and pages of the sweetest, most touching examples of how that love is manifested. I was right there with them through the pain, the heartache, the difficult moments, and all the love that they and their friends had to share. I loved every minute of it.

The Rock U Series: A World of Love, Fun, and Heartbreak

I have to admit, I’m such a softy. I have to be careful sometimes because I don’t want my husband to catch me tearing up when reading Christie’s books. She’s very good at weaving a tale, and I can’t get enough.

The entire group of guys in the Rock U series are all amazing characters. With this being the sixth in the series, I feel like I am missing out on so much of the love, fun, heartbreak, action, and entire world these guys are living in. I can’t wait to read the first four books in the series.

Another 5-star rating for Christie Gordon!

More Than a Spark is the sixth book in the Rock U series and is part of the Mesa Boys universe. This novel features an artistic graphic arts student surrendering to the love he’s kept secret for his firefighting best friend and contains a bisexual awakening, steamy first times, and coming out with a backdrop of choosing love or career. It guarantees a HEA and has no cliffhangers. Each book features a different couple and can be read as a standalone or as part of the series in order.

Christie Gordon PortraitAbout The Author
Christie Gordon started writing gay and MM romance books after finding Yaoi fanfiction by accident and falling in love with it. I’ve always had stories in my head and always enjoyed writing, so I decided to try my hand at the genre and took up fiction writing classes at a local community college.

I published my first MM romance book with eXtasy Books back in 2009. Always follow my muses wherever they take me, writing a mixture of paranormal, historical, and contemporary romances. I enjoy writing about men discovering themselves, overcoming obstacles, and finding love in the process, along with a happy ending.

My day job is in the high-tech industry with a Bachelor of Science in Electrical Engineering and a Master’s in Business Administration. I currently live in the Phoenix, Arizona metro area but have also lived in the Bay Area of California and grew up in Minnesota. If I’m not writing, I’m watching boys love dramas or creating digital artwork. I’m also a mother of two young adult sons, whose antics keep me on my toes. My one-eyed rescue pug is always by my side, snoring the day away.
