Not many people know that I, Eevie Lawson, have a problem. An addiction to romance novels. I eat them for breakfast. I hide it the best I can, but I need them to breathe. It’s how I cope.

I’ve had a swag of book boyfriends, but now that I’m free from the responsibility of caring for my three younger brothers, it’s time to find one in the flesh.

In real life, no girl meets their hero on page one, or even at the end of chapter one. I should know.

My journey is real. It’s not perfect, and it sure as hell isn’t easy—but the fight for something worthwhile never is.

*Recommended for readers over 18 as contains adult themes.

From Publishers Weekly

Jul 16, 2012 – At the age of 14, Andrea’s brother, Delphie, burned down a shed, an event that their mother calls “the beginning of the end.” Two years later he torched a house, killing a family. As the book begins, Delphie, after 20 years in prison, moves in with his sister and her boyfriend in their small Brooklyn apartment, reawakening Andrea’s guilt over her brother’s actions and spurring her into the streets at night. In a late-night record store, Andrea meets a “keletal and beautiful” woman, Sally, who takes her to a mysterious bar that she won’t be able to find again. Sally’s function in the novel is unclear, as is the function of Andrea’s dog-walking client, a plucky aging actress named Rain. Andrea’s guilt has to do with a fact of her birth that becomes clear late in the book, and which ties her to her brother in more ways than one. Unfortunately, this debut is as cluttered as the junk drawer where Delphie’s mother kept the matchbooks, with too many elements—the boyfriend, the brother, the brother’s psychiatrist, the client, and the friend, all of them given plenty of attention—for the reader to feel the burn of Andrea’s anguish.

Customer Reviews

Great book & Great author

This was a heartwarming book with wonderful characters and a great story line.

Thank you so much Jennifer Ryder for writing this book! After reading your acknowledgements, something I never do, I can honestly say that I look forward to reading more of your work; not only are you a wonderful writer, but you seem like an amazing person and mother!

Great read!

Just like the author, I am a sucker for romance books. Sure I like it to get a little steamy but there needs to be a story. Jennifer does a wonderful job of telling the story with romance. Read the acknowledgements too...she has quite the story herself!

Spark (Spark Series #1

any time an author has to use the "F" word over and over again to express or describe something, they need to back to school and learn how to write with better vocabulary.
