Just One Spark by Carly Phillips

Release Date: January 18th 2022 by CP Publishing
Pages: 215
Genres: Contemporary, Romance

He’s a playboy rock star living the rock and roll dream...

Until a very real baby scare threatens to bring it all crashing down.

Dash Kingston has learned his lesson and knows his hard-partying lifestyle needs to change. To clean up his playboy image, he needs a fake girlfriend.

There’s just one problem: the perfect woman for the job is a gorgeous blonde who once aroused not just his body but his emotions, sending him running. And leaving her to wake up alone.

For the band’s sake, Cassidy Forrester agrees to play the girlfriend role, but she’s not going to fall for Dash’s charm or sex appeal ever again.

Except this Dash Kingston swears he’s a changed man, and he’s out to win Cassidy over - for good. But only a fool would make the same mistake twice, and Cassidy refuses to let their spark burn her a second time. 

My Review:

The rock star vibes are all over Just One Spark, the fourth book in The Kingston Family Series. This second chance romance is sizzling, swoon worthy and will leave you rooting for the characters until the very end.

As the lead singer of the Original Kings, Dash Kingston has been living the life of a playboy rock star surrounded by beautiful women and more money than he’d ever dreamed of earning. His success has made him world famous and he has worked really hard to get to where he is. Until a one-night stand leaves him with a baby scare that threatens to change his life forever. Word is quickly spreading and instead of talking about their music or the new drummer, Axel Forrester, the focus is all on him and Dash doesn’t like it one bit.

While he waits for the paternity results, Dash thinks about all the mistakes that he has made and his mind goes to Cassidy Forrester. He crossed a line with her by having a one-night stand with his brother’s partner’s former personal assistant. He freaked out the next morning and left without saying anything and making things awkward between them. But she doesn’t know that he left because of how much she affected him and not because he played her. Then his publicists offers a solution, to get a fake girlfriend so the press stops going after him and they all think that Cassidy is the best person to do it. His only obstacle now is to convince her that he is worth the shot if only she would let him break the barriers around her heart.

When Cassidy Forrester made the move from L.A to New York to be close to her brother and best friend, she never imagined how much her life was about to change. Having worked with her best friend and A-list actress, Sasha, Cassidy has been surrounded by celebrities for the past four years. So when her older brother becomes part of the Original Kings, she is incredibly happy for him and his success with the famous band.

But it’s the career step of a lifetime that has her excited for the next phase in her life. As her friend and business partners were creating a production company and have asked Cassidy to be their creative director. While they are all trying to get the company running, Cassidy agrees to be the band’s temporary assistant and while she doesn’t want to be close to Dash, she does it for her brother. Until Dash apologizes for leaving her the next morning and asks her to be his fake girlfriend. Cassidy knows that she is gambling with her heart, but promises herself that she will not let Dash near it as she has been hurt in the past. Dash is determined to make her his and it would take a turn of events to make her question whether or not they can actually have a future together.

I loved seeing this rock star get his second chance at a happily-ever-after. The characters have such a sizzling chemistry from the very beginning that is hard to ignore. Dash knows what he wants and it’s Cassidy ever since they met. There is something about her that keeps calling to him and he doesn’t want to let her go. There is also a lot that she doesn’t know about him that the characters have to navigate as a couple. Meanwhile, Cassidy has been hurt in the past and is Dash’s reputation that makes it harder to her to fully trust or commit to anyone else. There is so much that happens in book that I enjoyed, we get to see cameos from previous characters in the series. The ending was sweet and very fitting to their story. I would highly recommend checking out this book as well as the whole series, you will not regret it! :)
