Just One Spark by Carly Phillips - ARC Review

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.

This one worked well from the first page.

I don't know what it is about a bad bit finally deciding he's found the one, but I love this trope (it also works especially well in historical novels, if that's your thing) and I was excited to read this title.

Dash and Cassidy had a one night stand and, as bad boys often do, Dash reacted badly to how he felt the next morning.

Fast forward to the days after one of those life experiences that change you and he realizes quickly that the reason he was afraid was because what he had with Cassidy had the potential to be real... So he has to figure out how to make her, and his family, and her friends, and his band realize that he's changed.

And, well, he does an excellent job and gives the reader (and Cassidy) quite a few swoon worthy moments on his way to convincing all of us that he's serious.

Sometimes it's a lot of fun to read a book about a guy who is all in pretty quickly. Dash, once he finally figures it out, is great fun to watch win the love of his life.

There's not a lot about this book that's complicated, not a lot of angst (although there is some strong character growth) and it lets this be an easy read that's also satisfying as it's well balanced and paced well.

I enjoyed and recommend this title.
