J.T. Drake: It’s not easy to seduce a woman who can’t see me. But if I weren’t invisible, prim and proper Rosy Peabody would probably have even less of an interest in me. At least as her science experiment, I have her undivided attention and unlimited opportunities to try to win her affection . . . or to at least make her
blush that pretty shade of pink that tells me I’ve sparked her temper. So maybe I shouldn’t be in such a hurry to have my image restored . . .
Rosy Peabody: It’s not easy to ignore my tingling nerve-endings whenever J.T. and I touch. I keep telling myself that they’re only the after-effects of his electrified state, but lately, just the thought of him provokes the same reaction in me. I wouldn’t give a cocky guy like J.T. a moment of my time if not for the fact that I’m partially responsible for his condition . . . and quite possibly the only person capable of reversing it. And now I can’t help wondering . . . if J.T. ever materializes, will our sizzling chemistry disappear . . . or spark a little flame?

SPARK A LITTLE FLAME was a fun read that I finished pretty quickly. It’s told in the third person and goes between the POVs of J.T. (mystery writer and unexpected science experiment), Rosy (scientist working with Dr. Drake and J.T.’s love interest), and Dr. Drake (mad scientist and J.T.’s dad).
I liked that the action began almost right from the start of the book. That’s maybe what drew me into the book and its world so quickly. The author also created some fun and eccentric characters that we get to know throughout the book, the neighbor being one of them.
I didn’t expect for there to be a bit of a revenge plot through into the mix. I kinda thought the whole book would be the scientists working to solve the invisibility problem they’ve created, but there was a little more to the book than that. The revenge plot kept the book moving forward at a good pace, but I kinda wish the book could have been resolved in some other way.
The romance moved very quickly as well and, while it was nice to experience, I kinda wish there could have been more tension in the relationship. I’m a fan of tension being the whole book and then finally receiving the resolve at the end.
That being said, I enjoyed this book. There was a little bit of comedy, romance, and action, which is always a good mix. I probably wouldn’t read it again, but my attention was captured for nearly the whole book.
