Hadley Beckett’s quest for wedded bliss perseveres.

A dare. My intrepid sportscaster boyfriend, Finn Wilder, keeps me guessing and on edge, especially when it comes to jumping off bridges or marrying me. Infamously anti-marriage, he promised me he’d consider taking me to the altar if I give him more time. Done. We’re in our thirties, and the sand is running out of the hourg

I love this story and I can't wait for the third book to come out! The story continues with Finn and Hadley (Becks) and their struggle to each have what they want in a relationship and in life. Does one give while the other takes? How should they decide who gives up their convictions? What happens to the couple if it feels all one-sided? This is so true to live in so many aspects and Ren Alexander does a terrific job of making you feel each character's love, angst, hurt and anger.

I loved the story for quite a few reasons. 1) Rod and Morgan are absolutely hysterical. I can not tell you how awesome the witty banter back and forth was! 2) Finn and Hadley aka "Becks" - those two drive me absolutely insane! Seriously after 3 years either get it together or move on. 3) Rick and Simone - I hate to speculate, but I really enjoyed reading about those two interacting the way they did....Kept me wondering for sure.
Overall, I think it was a wonderful story. I certainly hope to see

This series is fantastic, and it just keeps getting more awesome as a rip through each book!!!!

Hadley Beckett and Finn Wilder are back and at it again. Ms. Alexander does not disappoint with the latest installment of our favorite fighting, loving and laughing couple. She just keeps getting better and the characters develop into real people with hilarious personalities before your eyes.
There is so much pressure for a Forever between the two lovers from family, friends and each other trying to push them to make a decision. Who will give in first, Finn or Hadley?

I found myself NEEDING to pick up Daring The Wild Sparks after finishing Chasing The Wild sparks. Ren Alexander is able to provide well written scenes that is able to move me as a reader, enabling me to feel like I was part of their gang. With the capability to feel the emotions and thoughts of Hadley & Finn.

Daring is written over the duration of Becks (Hadley) & Finn spending Easter at his parent house. Becks is very much welcomed in Finn’s family, so much that they already see her as a daughte

In Daring The Wild Sparks, we can see the depth of each other's love. But we also see that Hadley and Finn feel inferior to the other that they doubt what the other one truly feels. It is true with relationships of those we know in our lives. People have internal struggles along with outside conditions that make them not truly trust the feelings their partner has for them and even doubt what they feel for the other.

Both Hadley and Finn want the same thing to be soul mates forever. They both oft

I don’t even know where to start… I freaking love this series! Daring the Wild Sparks is book 2 of the series, it picks up exactly where Chasing the Wild Sparks leaves off, so if you have not read the first one, stop right now and go One-Click it. Seriously… why are you still here?

Finn is still being the stubborn jack-ass that he is. Ok, that may have been a little tough on him. Finn is still the ever loving boyfriend we all fell in love with, doing everything he can think of to prove his love a

Finn and Hadley are at it again in the continuation of their story from Chasing the Wild Sparks.

The setting for this book is Easter weekend and the revelations during this weekend for them are WOW. I actually felt like slapping both Finn and Hadley in this one because the suspense is killing me! The inevitable evidence against their love for each other is awesome. And the dare that he shared with Hadley was so sweet and inexplicably shows his love for her, but still her ins

I love Finn Wilder, but I love Ren Alexander more for writing these books!! The story just continues right back to these two knuckleheads, Finn and Hadley both to stubborn and afraid of rejection. Finn has his own problems with commitment because of the divorces his parents went through so he strongly believes everyone is doomed if they marry. He knows deep down that's not true for everyone he just needs to consciously admit it. Hadley has her own abandonment issues and doesn't believe somebody ...more

The title of this book is great. The first book is Chasing the Wild Sparks and this one Daring the Wild Sparks. You will be feeling Wild Sparks after reading these! I love these books. I love Finn. I think you will too. I think I like him a tiny bit more than I do Hadley. Don't get me wrong, I love her. She just hits too close to home for me. Then I start thinking, wow, did I nag my partner that much? The answer is YES lol. What is ironic is that I have been thinking lately how cool it would be ...more

My favorite couple are back and at it again. Finn and Becks cannot seem to get their relationship on a straight and narrow path and its so much fun to watch them fight and make up.

In the second book of this series the author exposes exactly why a healthy relationship begins and ends with communication, without it you both are left floundering in uncertainty and unsettled feelings.

Although Finn knows he has found his one true love of a lifetime, at times he almost feels pressured and he cannot f

5 well deserved stars

The insecurities that plagued Finn and Becks in Chasing the Wild Sparks continue in this next installment of the series. They are both still trying to hold their ground on how they view their relationship and its future. Will either of them have to give in to the other and abandon his/her convictions? Will there be a compromise and each get a little of what they desire?

The love they have for each other was apparent in Chas

The follow up to Chasing the Wild Sparks is equally as engaging as the first book. Daring the Wild Sparks is another can't put down read from Ren Alexander. I love the characters of Hadley and Finn. They are so in love with each other, but their ultimate dreams are not the same. Both of them desperately want to spend the rest of their lives together. The huge roadblock for them is the word marriage. This book continues their rollercoaster relationship. Never once, does the reader doubt how much ...more

My, my, my, my, I love Finn and Hadley but I am SO frustrated with them both!! These two love each other so much and have such chemistry together but they just can get on the same page. The sexual tension that they have is off the charts hot. I agree with both of their wants and needs but they really need to sit down and talk openly (Hadley) and honestly (Finn).

Finn invites Hadley to stay with him and his family over Easter break. Will this visit break them up or put a ring on Hadley's

A cliffhanger, I am ruined! Ren Alexander has done it again and hit another one right out of the park and into the next atmosphere, but she has nearly devastated me in the process. There is far more conflict in this installment of her series and the up and down has nearly wrecked me, which is just further proof of Ms. Alexander's adroit writing skills. She handily sucks me right into the story with emotive and evocative details. After a 3 year relationship, this couple seems to be having a reall ...more

OK people! This read is Necessary!
I already let you know how I felt about book 1, Chasing the Wild Sparks. Now we are back again with Daring the Wild Sparks, where Hadley, aka Becks, and Finn, aka Sparks, are still keeping us on our toes. The chemistry in this series and these characters, is ridiculous! Between the love/hate relationship we have going on and the underlying comedy, I am going to end up with abs! Reading Ren's work, I would never guess this was debut work. This witty romance has

My heart breaks for Hadley. I understand where Finn is coming from but Hadley has given up so much for him and gotten nothing in return. If he is going to propose or even marry her then he needs to do it or he will lose her. I still love Rod and Morgan. They are always there when Hadley needs them the most and sometimes, in Rod's case, when she doesn't want them. I love how this series has a different pace than others in the same category. It's like a real world relationship put to paper and tha ...more

Daring The Wild Sparks is en excellent follow up to Ren's series. In this book we finally get to see Hadley (Becks) and Finn open up quite a bit. Becks becomes a little more bold in their intimacy and Finn now wants to shout his love for her from the mountaintops! They still have issues to deal with though. Hadley feels Finn doesn't trust her enough and Finn is still not ready for the plunge. Couple that with insecurities, well meaning but misleading best friends and scheming skanks and that spe ...more

Another must read by Ren Alexander! I absolutely love this back an forth relationship of Finn and Becks. Just when I would get all excited that they were finally getting somewhere or that Finn was finally coming around, something in their lives or families would interfere. I couldn't put this book down as I had to see what would happen. I cannot wait for the next book so we know what happens with all the characters. In the first book we have lots of Rod and Morgan who are two of my faves but in ...more

Wow! Another home run for Ren Alexander. Daring the Wild Sparks continues the love story of Finn and Hadley. The couple struggles against each other when it comes to marriage and children. Hadley wants it all and Finn does not, which causes some soul searching and hilarious conversations with their friends. The book is written in Hadley's point of view although two chapters are dedicated to Finn's point of view, which I think really helps to understand his feelings on the couple's issues.

I loved this book! I cannot wait until book three!! Finn and Becks absolutely drove me nuts emotionally. Finn getting a Becks tattoo over his heart melted me, I absolutely loved it. Although I just cannot see how he can carry her permanently inked on his body, over his heart. A symbol of forever and all eternity yet still send me mixed signals about his commitment.

Daring the Wild Sparks was a very dramatic read! I absolutely loved it and think that a lot of readers will be able to relate to the characters. Commitment and starting a family often causes tension and drama in relationships. Finn and Hadley's relationship changed in this book, as Finn decided to no longer keep his personal life "so personal." I wish that we did get more of his perspective throughout the book. Once again I loved Rod and Morgan in this book just as much as I did in the first boo ...more

LOVED THIS BOOK!!! This book took you deep into the mind and soul of Finn Wilder. You learn a lot about his past and why he is the way he is. It also goes further into discussions of the big questions haunting Hadley. Finn also gives Hadley an extra special (what he refers to as a) Easter Gift, that will leave you and Hadley surprised. I simply can not wait for the next instalment. this book got wilder (pun intended) towards the end and I for one am dying to know what happens next.

Finn and Hadley are back and they still can't seem to get it together. I Loved to see this couple learn to communicate. This book is the prime example of men are from Mars and women are from Venus. If you are looking for something that is funny and loving, this book is for you. Ren has really delved into love relationships and I am loving it. Don't Miss Out!

Once again Ren is taking real life, really pulling you in and not letting go. It does not matter how frustrated this book made me I could not put it down. We have more of the same , Becks and Finn are so at odds , anytime you think they caught a break something comes up little or major and ruins the moment. Just about every hot moment in this book is plagued with raw honesty. This book covers their Easter weekend mini vacation and though it seems crazy that a whole boo

Book number two in the Wild Sparks series by Ren Alexander has left me desperate for more Finn and Becks. I am left with so many emotions, so many questions, so many hopes for this couple… This book was all around phenomenal.
What in the hell does he dream about? Probably bridges and blow jobs.
Actually, Finn Wilder dreams about his Becks. About being with her in every way, holding her at night, kissing away her fears. He even dreams about… well, I can’t tell you, because it’s a deep, dark secre

Okay, so I’m probably Hadley’s biggest fan. But Finn is really getting on my nerves. If you don’t want to get married and have kids then you should be responsible and make the right decisions to prevent that from happening. He doesn’t think, and is being really careless and selfish. Only worried about what he wants and his needs. Maybe not completely true and he just doesn’t realize what he is doing to Hadley but I’m mad at him at the moment….
