"Sparks with a stranger --definitely not on her agenda."

Things are getting hot in Juniper Point once again!!

I've been waiting for Finn's story. He intrigued from the start.
Then at the end of Into The Flames when he flirted with his cheesy pick-up lines, I knew I had to know him!
Plus, it gave the first glimpse of Lisa, the Bad-A nurse who seemed mysterious, and yet, so enchanting.

Their whole cat and mouse game was so great to see. But, oh my gee, I wanted to jump into my kindle and push them to
Guilty Pleasures Book Reviews

Finn, in one way or another, was an important character in all the Jupiter Point books. As I read them all, I felt that they were all leading up to Finn. Was I happy that he was going to find his HEA with a woman who appreciated him for who he was inside instead of his last name … most definitely. Was I happy that the woman who he would chose was strong, independent and sassy … absolutely.

I have loved Finn from the beginning. There was just something about him, about what he went through, where

It’s been sixteen months since the Big Canyon burnover, when Finn Abrams panicked, and disaster struck. His body is just about healed, albeit scarred, but Finn never quite managed to get his life back on track. He lived for the Jupiter Point Hotshots, and he wants to get back in. Lisa Peretti has been hiding for ten months. She left her position as ER nurse in Houston when she helped a friend; she knew the problems it would cause would change her life. Lisa and Finn had met a few months the year ...more

You might have notice how I reviewed book #7 & #8 but missed, 4-6. It's not that I haven't read them it's that I haven't yet reviewed them. With 7 & 8 I joined tours for those so they had to be review at a certain date. Not to worry you'll see 5 & 6 here soon.

So back to Setting Off Sparks. I think this one everyone was waiting for. Let's be honest we wanted to know my about Finn and why he did what he did.

This book takes us back to Jupiter Point with another fantastic story! Finn Abrams is still dealing with the consequences of his actions during the burnover in Big Canyon last year. As the fire grew near a bizarre memory had him fleeing rather than relying on his training. He obviously survived but the scars, both physical and mental, have him fighting him way back. Lisa Peretti is new to Jupiter Point. She doesn't plan to stay long. Just enough time for the craziness she left behind to die down ...more

the intense feelings scorch the pages of the story. this a very well written book. I love Finn in this story, His humor draws you in and you will chuckle through the whole book. Finn and Lisa are spectacular together, you can't help but root for them and cringe at some of their decisions. Definitely a one click and Jennifer Bernard is definitely a one click author. I read this book for my honest review

Nurse Lisa Peretti is a hardworking, kind hearted person who is being pursued by someone wanting to steal some files. Her moving about brings her to Jupiter Point where she meets Finn Abrams a hotshot firefighter, with a kind heart and a flirt game unlike any other. This is another wonderful continuation in the Jupiter Point books. This read will have you on the edge of your seat wanting to see what happens next.

Another great Jupiter Point book! This time our favorite would be Hollywood Hotshot meets his dream girl, too bad she's a cynic when it comes to love! It was such fun watching Finn get the girl with romance and his natural charm and his relationship with Molly is so sweet! A bit of intrigue keeps the story moving along but it's Bernard's fun dialogue and the chemistry that really makes the story.

Sparks into Flames!

I think I've read just about all of Jennifer Bernard's books. Her San Gabriel Fireman were hot! I really enjoyed her baseball players, but her Hot Shot Firefighters from Jupiter Point are my favorite so far! I guess if she need another series, maybe a HotShot baseball team.
This story was great, with romance, mystery and laughter. Loved the fact that there were mysteries on both sides. Kept it interesting bouncing back and forth between Finn and Lisa. Keep up the great work Ms.

Finn wants nothing more than being a hotshot. A long-buried childhood memory sends Finn running from a wildfire. As a result, he's badly burned and left with scars as a daily reminder. The rest of his old crew escaped the same fate by following protocol and NOT running. Since then, several of Finn's former crew have become hotshots for Jupiter Point. Finn wants to join the crew, but isn't sure the trust is there. He also realizes he's not physically where he needs to be either. Finn enlists the ...more

3.5 out of 5

This is the third book I’ve read in this series and like the others it’s soooo good. I’m loving them. Finn Abrams is the hero in this book. He’s the object of the crush Brianna had in the previous book and now it’s his turn. He’s a rookie on the Jupiter Point Team. Previously he and a number of other firefighters were fighting a fire when there was a burnover. Rather than staying with the team, he had a nightmarish flashback and bolted instead of staying with the team. As a result he

**Received an ARC in exchange for an honest review.**

"Setting Off Sparks" is written by Jennifer Bernard, and it is the 4th book in her Jupiter Point series. It can be read as a stand-alone book. It features Finn Abrams and Lisa Peretti.

Readers were first introduced to Finn in "Set the Night on Fire," which is the first book in this series. In that book, you see Finn with his fellow hotshot crew, but he panicked and ran away from the fire, which could've endangered the lives of the other firefig

Welcome back to Jupiter Point! Finn Abrams is no stranger to Jupiter Point or to the Hot Shots. But will he be able to move on from the terrors of the Big Canyon burnover or the scars that it left both emotionally and physically on him? And more importantly will he even be trusted and earn his place back on the crew?

All Finn Abrams wants to do is get back to being a Hot Shot. In order to do that, he has to get to the bottom of the flashback that caused him to run instead of hunkering down during the burn over like the rest of his crew and work past the injuries he incurred when he ran. Lisa Peretti is in Jupiter Point temporarily. She left her job after helping a friend, and she decides to stay off the radar for a while, just in case there is trouble. When she meets Finn, his cheesy pick up lines intrigue h ...more

I love Jupiter Point! It's the home of the Fighting Scorpions Hotshots wildfire crew and the sweet small town atmosphere makes me want to move there and spend my evenings taking advantage of the superior stargazing that made the town famous. Finn is the survivor of a blaze that left him scarred with burns 16 months ago. He's healed and he's worked hard to overcome the debilitating pain from the scar tissue that covers half of his face and his torso. When he meets ER nurse Lisa she offers to trea ...more

Setting Off Sparks is the fourth book in Jennifer Bernard’s Jupiter Point series. I have to say I couldn’t wait to read Finn Abrams’s book. His character was originally introduced in the first book in the series: Set the Night on Fire. I knew at that time there was more to his decision to run during the burnover, and Ms. Bernard definitely provided us with the answers.

Lisa Peretti, an ER nurse is the perfect heroine for Finn. Not only does she have her own secrets that she’s running from, her p

I love this series, set in Jupiter Point! From the HAWT Hot-Shots to the strong heroines, to the feisty old ladies, this town is perfect! Finn is the Hot-Shot that freaked during a burn over. His father is a movie mogul having the story capture on film. Finn had a memory come back to him while he was at the bottom of a creek bed trying to stay alive while burning tree fell across him. The memory was of another fire - with a different family. Now he's back, to get back on the team. And try to fin ...more

(Can I add more stars???) Every time I read a Jennifer Bernard book, I say it is my favorite; and I mean it each time. Setting Off Sparks is no different – loved, loved, LOVED it! It’s a standalone however it was such a great read and gave me the opportunity to visit with “old friends” from previous books. Just a few details, as I don’t want to get into any spoilers, but Finn Abrams was a Hotshot from the first book, who was burned and scarred in a fire. He’s trying to come to terms with that, g ...more

Jennifer Bernard nailed it! ‘Setting Off Sparks’ is sexy, fun, intense, and exploding with emotion. I was so excited to return to Jupiter Point and our beloved Hotshots. I was intrigued by Finn from the beginning of the series and was ecstatic to find out his book was next. In ‘Set the Night on Fire’, Finn panicked and ran from the burn over in the canyon instead of taking cover with the rest of his crew. In doing so, he barely escaped with his life and was left severely scarred, both emotionall ...more

I am never disappointed when I pick up a Jennifer Bernard book and was so happy to see this was Finn's story. I simply adore Finn! He is funny, sweet and sexy with a touch of vulnerability.

Four and a half stars.

This was excellent.

Finn Abrams is scarred from a burnover, and while that was traumatic, he just wants to get back to normal and return to the hotshot crew at Jupiter Point.

Lisa Peretti doesn't plan on staying in Jupiter Point for long. She helped a friend out of a dangerous situation in Houston, and figured that laying low for a bit after wouldn't be a bad idea.

Finn's captivated by Lisa from before they actually meet in person, and he can't stop his mouth from saying ridic

Another winner from Jennifer Bernard! Setting off Sparks is part of her Jupiter Point series which features Hotshots based out of the town Jupiter Point and the women who bring them to their knees. I love this series because even though each book is a standalone book, you get to visit with the crew in all of the books. Because of that, I do recommend reading them all! This book features Finn who was introduced in the first book of the series where we only got to see a glimpse of his character. S ...more
