I loved this book, and while the voice was still the same, it was also a departure from Fate's Love. A more ... grown up version.

We follow Keefer and Sharn in this book. Keefer was interesting in the last book, but mostly in the background. Sharn was much more up and center, but I never imagined she'd turn out the way she did, teaching, work-minded, mending a broken home.

Keefer also surprised me - this book had more angst than the last book, more actual strife. Any hang-ups these characters had,

Sharn Macer is a 9th grade English teacher elected to be the faculty adviser for an after-school baseball program for at risk students. Keefer Smith is the baseball coach assigned to train Sharn’s students. Sharn and Keefer know each other from their own high school days, but back then they ran in different circles. Now they aren’t so different though. Their family backgrounds bear a lot of similarities, even when they don’t realize it.

Overall the story is good. I enjoyed the inclusion

I HATE THIS BOOK. It makes me reminisce about my high school life. It makes me cry like a baby. I pulled an all-nighter because I couldn’t put this book down. This book is genius! I’m kidding about the hate part, I hope I didn’t give the author a mini heart attack. *wink*

The author knows how to show one’s emotions through words. The story is mature and realistic. I really loved it! Sharn and Keefer both have family issues that they badly want
Lustful Literature

This is the second book in the Fate's Love Series, which follows the life of Sharn, Livy's BFF from Fate's Love My Review. This can be read as a standalone.

When Sharn crosses paths with the sexy Keefer whom she went to high school with, sparks will fly. Forced to work together to run an at risk program at the school Sharn teaches at, Sharn and Keefer take flirting to another level. Sharn's past keeps coming back to haunt her and everyone tries to step in their way and keep them

Ohh, once again, L.A. Cotton has surprised me :)! Love’s Spark was even better than Fate’s Love, which was reaaaally good. So, thank you Lianne, for giving me the chance to read your work. It was so much fun. Spark’s Love is the second book of the Fate’s Love series, altough it can be read as a standalone, since it’s about two different characters, with the special appearance of characters from the previous books (which I loved).

This is the second book in this series. This book is about how Sharn Macer and Keefer Smith find each other and fall in love. They went to high school together but never hung out together and only just barely knew each other. Sharn was very popular in high school and had a reputation and it wasn’t the best. Keefer had a few close friends and never really talked. Now 4 years after graduation they meet again. Sharn is an English teacher and Keefer is a baseball coach. Some of the 9th graders have ...more

The story of Sharn and Keefer and finding love when they least expected it.

School teacher Sharn Macer has been spending years dating, looking for that spark…but failed time after time. No matter how much she dates or how much her friend sets her up, she never found that spark she’s been looking for. So she decided to take a break from dating, then walks in Keefer Smith.

An ARC provided in exchange for an honest review.

Love's Spark is the story of Keefer and Sharn. We met both these characters in the first book. In high school, Keefer was always the quiet guy who didn't draw much attention to himself. Sharn was the popular girl who went out with different boys every week.

Fast forward six years and Keefer is a baseball coach at his old high school where Sharn is also a teacher. Keefer didn't expect to find a connection to a woman such as the one he begins to hav

Received a free copy for my honest review for Fallen for Books

This is the second book in this series. But can be read as a standalone.
In this book we get more details about Sharn's life. And boy has she changed. She's all grown up and facing real life issues instead of just normal high school drama.

Just like the first book there are so many details that suck you in to the story. Really good story line that you can't help but root for Sharn and Keefer.

I was given this book for my honest review

Bumper Cars as we were growing up were all the rave from the waiting on line till we got in our favorite car to drive. We would spend minutes upon minutes talking to our friends about what we were going to do and to watch out cause they were gonna get rammed. As we took our seats buckled up as the ride starts we drive to ram our friends just to have that jolt of fun. Laughing, driving and hitting our friends became an amazing feat. Memorie

Ever since Sharn's character was introduced in Fate's Love, I couldn't wait to know more about her. So, when I heard she was getting her own story, I was so pumped!

For the past 6 years, Sharn has been looking for love and failing miserably. When she experiences a life changing break up, she has no choice but to move back home. It's time for her to start making some changes.....

Keefer has always kept to himself and doesn't have time to date. The only thing he really has going for him is baseball.

I’d read and enjoyed the first book in this series, so jumped at the chance to receive an ARC of Love’s Spark.

although it is the second in a series, it is fully capable of standing alone on it’s own merit. While the characters link to the first book, and some of the story crosses over a bit, this is an entirely new story.

We first meet Sharn at high school, where she is that girl. The one that falls for the bad boys, over and over allowing herself to get hurt. I just assumed she was just a bit of

The story revolves around Sharn, who's decided that she can't rely on her sense of judgment on choosing guys anymore, thanks to a rough breakup, and a few even rougher dates, and Keefer, the silent, solemn and unassuming boy she had known back in high school. Keefer has a lot of woes and worries to support on his shoulders and finds solace in his baseball games. Keefer could have never ever imagined that the much s

Even though this is a stand alone book there is a cross over with the character from Fate's Love .

This is the second book written by LA Cotton, and once again it was a pleasure to read. This book covers some characters previously met in Fates Love, but it can be read as a standalone. It kept my attention from the start and I couldn’t put it down, I wasn’t sure it could beat Fates Love, but hey we can all be wrong. The characters are well thought out and you end up falling in love with them, well I did anyway. Definitely worth reading.

I absolutely loved Sharn and Keefer's story!!!!

Sharn, is no longer the girl she was when she was in High School. She is now teaching at the old school and is actually very liked and respected among the staff and students. So much that she is given a project to help troubled students. Little did our girl know that the project she has been give would introduce her to the one that would give her the spark!

Love's Spark is book 2 in the Fate's Love series. It can be read as a standalone and you don't have to read book one, Fate's Love, first. The first book is Livy and Ethan's story. Sharn is Livy's best friend so Keefer and Sharn are in the first book but we don't get their story until Love's Spark. Love's Spark is Sharn and Keefer's story.

Another fantastic book from L.A Cotton. Love's Spark is book #2 in the Fate's Love series and while you don't have to read them in order, you do see a bit of the characters from this book in book #1.
I absolutely loved book #1 and couldn't wait to jump into this one, while we get a story from a different set of characters we still have the characters from book #1 in the background.

How do you overcome the image people have of you from High School, even if you are not that person any more?

And how do you put yourself out there and risk your heart, when to lose would leave you with nothing?

Those are just two of the issues facing Sharn and Keefer.

Regular readers will be unsurprised to learn that I didn't read book 1 in this series. However, that didn't impact upon my enjoyment of this book at all. I never felt lost or that I had missed some massive pointer from the previous b

Sharn is one of my favorite characters from book one. Even though it was told in Olivia's POV I still felt her pain that she endured in high school. Keefer was a mystery in book one, he was quiet and kept to himself. So going into this book I wasn't sure but Keefer is sweet and honorable. I loved his shy quiet behavior even if it made seem guarded or awkward, because that was him and it made him more real.

Their story is cute, I loved how the students worked into their relationship as well. Thei

I was hesitant to start this book because it had been a while since I read the first one.
I shouldn't have worried and even though this book mentions the previous characters, it doesn't impact on book 2.

Not gonna lie here, I love me some baseball players! It's something to do with their patience or maybe its the pants, I'll never really know. I really loved this book. Keefer is a man after my own heart! I don't think there was any way I was not going to love this man. This story is such a good one. It went by super fast for me. I easily read it in one setting. I liked Sharn and her personality. She was a good balance for Keefer but at times I felt the difference was too much or maybe just point ...more

Sharn is 24 and has given up on finding the one who gives her that spark. By a twist of fate she ends up working with Keefer. She hasn't been around him since high school. But there is definitely something there.
She is fun and outgoing and he is serious and keeps to himself.
The romance was great. I loved Sharn, she is funny and a great leading lady. Keefer is Hot brooding guy. They have great physical chemistry.
The thing that I didn't like was that it only seemed physical for awhile. I wan

Sharn Macer and Keefer Smith were worlds apart in high school, he was the quiet shy guy and she the popular, slutty girl.
Now their all grown up and both have changed.
Meeting up by chance for an after school program they reconnect and get to know each other as adults.
Their relationship progresses to what could be something real when their family lives come into play and pull them apart.

Love's Spark is a sweet story, though at times I thought Sharn's behavior was still a bit petty and childish, s
