Review: Just Another Spark by Carly Phillips (The Kingston Family #5.5)
Note: An advance reader copy (ARC) was provided by the author via Wildfire Marketing.
Just Another Spark is a short story that follows Dash and Cassidy Kingston after their happily-ever-after in Just One Spark, with both books part of Carly Phillips's Kingston Family series. While you don't necessarily need to read any of the other books in the series, I do recommend you check out Just One Spark first before diving into this new one since it is all about Dash and Cassidy's romance, while Just Another Spark serves as the "what happens after the HEA" kind of book. Both titles are available thru online retailers.
Dash and Cassidy Kingston have gotten their happy endings, both personally and professionally. However, even HEAs come with challenges, especially for two people experiencing the successes of their endeavors. They're busy and doing their own thing--Dash with his band's sold-out tour and Cassidy producing her current film project. Touching base, even over the phone, is difficult, and rumors and gossip aren't helping either. The love and trust are there, but when and how will these two find time together?
This was a quick read--like an extended epilogue for the already established couple that is Dash and Cassidy. Post-HEA stories are like bonuses, especially for well-loved characters. It was interesting to see that while our main characters were still very much in love, they were also dealing with issues other couples easily relate with: work, distance, time, and so on. The resolution didn't take overly long, this is a short story after all, and as expected, everything ended happily for Mr. and Mrs. Kingston. Four stars go to Just Another Spark.
