    I loved the characters, but didn?t like the storyline as much as I hoped. I?m a huge Brayden fan and I did enjoy this, I just didn?t OMG love it. Ever since the first few pages of book 1, I wanted to know more about Gia. Gia was more mysterious than the others and I loved that sh...

    *I received this book from Bold Strokes Books and Netgalley for an honest review* A weird thing happened when I turned to this book. I was getting flashes of the most recent previous work I?d read, unexpected as I didn?t expect any real similarity. I kind of had a ?darn? mom...

    Wonderful dialogue and lots of inclusion of our favourite couples from the past two books, Gotta love Autumn and her wonder and joy at the impending arrivals along with her ability to eat guilt free with the athlete that is Gia. My favourite conversation involved all four Seven Shores ...

    I want to start this review by saying how glad I am that this is not a trilogy. There is one more and oh how I cannot wait for Hadley. Don?t get me wrong Hadley?s story is going to be outstanding but aren?t all of Brayden?s stories. Let me tell you Gia Malone and Elle Britton b...

    This is the third episode of the Seven Shores quartet, formed by Isabel, Autumn, Gia and Hadley. Of the two previous books, the first tells the relationship between Isabel and Taylor and the second develops the relationship between Autumn and Kate. So there will only be Hadley to match...

    I?ve tried to write four reviews on this book and it just isn?t working. I end up getting a little...grrrr...and how in the world can I be grrrr when Brayden books are so sticky sweet that I feel like I?m drowning in a cotton candy machine? I have nothing much to add to the revie...

    This is the third book in the Seven Shores series and is Gia Malone?s story. Slowly by surely Gia has worked her way up the surfing ranks to being second to Elle Britton, her cheerful and annoying nemesis. Being second has put her in the spotlight and circumstances force them into ha...

    Gia and Elle are competitive surfers. Elle is number one in the world, and Gia has always envied her. Gia is coming into her prime, and her skills are getting better and better. This could be her year. They have the opportunity to do some promotional work together, and sparks fly betwe...

    A rather good enemies-to-lovers story with a very promising beginning and a so-so ending. ...

    ? The copy provided by NetGalley and Bold Strokes Books Inc. in exchange for an honest review. ? What on earth has Melissa Brayden done? Did she...write a sports-themed romance that I can call a favorite? Maybe because it's surfing, which isn't a staple sport I hear about all th...

    This is book 3 of the 'Seven shores' series featuring four friends living in Venice beach, California which I recommend to read chronologically. 'Sparks like ours' is the story of Gia Malone, a professional surfer, and Elle Britton, world champion surfer and Gia's fiercest competitor. ...

    Goodness! Can?t believe I gave this a 4. Spoilers ahead so If you?re not up for it avoid this one big time. After eating ice cream and jogging around I?ve settled with 4. I love Gia and Elle actually they?re my favorite couple in this series but I feel bad for them. ...

    Wow, what a ride (even literally ;) I loved this story, the setting and the main characters. All of them, but especially Elle and Gia. Their chemistry goes through the roof, it's not only sparks, it's a complete fireworks of emotion. Definitely 5 stars! ...

    Part three in the Seven Shores series, which follows the lives of four friends in Venice L.A. This story is about Gia, the pro surfer. I was looking forward to her story, as I was intrigued by her from the first moment she was mentioned in book #1. She belongs to the top ten in the ...

    There's no doubt about it, Melissa has the gift of the gab. If you're looking for a feel good story, low on angst, with a great supporting cast, this might be just the ticket. Why not five stars? Although I was thoroughly entertained, I'm know next to nothing about surfing and foun...

    Add another extremely sweet romance to this series. I'm loving that in the last two books of this series the two couples have separated unhappily but mutually without the major drama, it just felt more real to me. The characters in these books are awesome and I just can't get enough of...

    I'm addicted and out of control with this series. 3rd book I've read in a span of 5 days. I'm glad that the fourth book isnt out yet or I'd have lost more sleep reading that too :) I love this feeling of getting hooked onto a series. That happiness you get after you finish a good bo...

    What really amazes me with Melissa Brayden?s books in general is her magical ability to write dialogues! I have a big problem with long dialogues in the books because usually to me they seem kind of forced and artificial, without a natural conversational fluidity, but that is simply ...

    My favorite in the series so far! Though, I think Hadley's could be the sweetest...we will see. I was highly anticipating this story as Gia has been the most mysterious of the group of friends...And this was pretty hot I have to say. The chemistry was great. The dialogue was witty. Th...

    I've virtually inhaled this series. Can't wait for Hadley's finale. ...

    I have really enjoyed all of Brayden's books. I was more excited when I first began reading her books and would preorder, and start them the day they were available. I am not that reader anymore, but I still enjoy them a great deal. I have liked each book in this series more than the l...

    Another wonderful story by Melissa Brayden. I had been waiting for this one as soon as I found out it would be a series because I wanted to know more about Gia. It was worth the wait :) Only one more book until the series is complete! I'm already looking forward to Hadley?s story. ...

    Melissa Brayden?s latest book, Sparks Like Ours, dealt with competitive surfing, job pressures, pregnancy worries, and of course, relationship problems. This is what I love about her books. She places her characters in many different realistic situations with dialogue to match. The k...

    Am I salty I was declined my request for this ARC? yes yes I am. But who do I blame my netgalley ratio is awful. BUT STILL, THIS IS ONE OF MY MOST ANTICIPATED RELEASES OF THE YEAR. ...

    Another fantastic novel from the pen of the formidable, Melissa Brayden. Gia Malone has worked for years to climb the surfing championship ladder and she?s finally one win away from being number one in the world. The only person standing in her way is the current number one, Elle ...

    I?m somewhat selective on which book to read because as emphasized by one of my favorite authors, you should never waste your time on non-quality books. Quality for me has to have at least, among others, a good story, good writing and good storytelling. With Melissa Brayden, you can ...

    Netgalley I think I?m finally tired of the Brayden formula. I just didn?t care about the characters. There?s witty dialogue, even though I still can?t find the voices of individual characters, there?s believable conflicts, even communication, but I didn?t feel it at ...

    This is book 3 of the 'Seven shores' series featuring four friends living in Venice beach, California which I recommend to read chronologically. 'Sparks like ours' is the story of Gia Malone, a professional surfer, and Elle Britton, world champion surfer and Gia's fiercest competitor. ...

    Goodness! Can?t believe I gave this a 4. Spoilers ahead so If you?re not up for it avoid this one big time. After eating ice cream and jogging around I?ve settled with 4. I love Gia and Elle actually they?re my favorite couple in this series but I feel bad for them. ...

    Wow, what a ride (even literally ;) I loved this story, the setting and the main characters. All of them, but especially Elle and Gia. Their chemistry goes through the roof, it's not only sparks, it's a complete fireworks of emotion. Definitely 5 stars! ...

    Part three in the Seven Shores series, which follows the lives of four friends in Venice L.A. This story is about Gia, the pro surfer. I was looking forward to her story, as I was intrigued by her from the first moment she was mentioned in book #1. She belongs to the top ten in the ...

    There's no doubt about it, Melissa has the gift of the gab. If you're looking for a feel good story, low on angst, with a great supporting cast, this might be just the ticket. Why not five stars? Although I was thoroughly entertained, I'm know next to nothing about surfing and foun...

    I have really enjoyed all of Brayden's books. I was more excited when I first began reading her books and would preorder, and start them the day they were available. I am not that reader anymore, but I still enjoy them a great deal. I have liked each book in this series more than the l...

    Another wonderful story by Melissa Brayden. I had been waiting for this one as soon as I found out it would be a series because I wanted to know more about Gia. It was worth the wait :) Only one more book until the series is complete! I'm already looking forward to Hadley?s story. ...

    I?m somewhat selective on which book to read because as emphasized by one of my favorite authors, you should never waste your time on non-quality books. Quality for me has to have at least, among others, a good story, good writing and good storytelling. With Melissa Brayden, you can ...

    Netgalley I think I?m finally tired of the Brayden formula. I just didn?t care about the characters. There?s witty dialogue, even though I still can?t find the voices of individual characters, there?s believable conflicts, even communication, but I didn?t feel it at ...

    This is third in a series and the friend group is very present in this story. I highly recommend reading these in order. I've been nervously excited to read Gia's story. Gia is a steady core for the friends and I've enjoyed her contributions in those stories. She doesn't say much, b...

    This is a read addressing the question, is it possible to simultaneously have a work life and personal life. Some would say of course while others would disagree. I believe it all depends on what is acceptable and perceived as good enough. In a relationship, there can be numerous chall...

    I loved the characters, but didn?t like the storyline as much as I hoped. I?m a huge Brayden fan and I did enjoy this, I just didn?t OMG love it. Ever since the first few pages of book 1, I wanted to know more about Gia. Gia was more mysterious than the others and I loved that sh...

    I want to start this review by saying how glad I am that this is not a trilogy. There is one more and oh how I cannot wait for Hadley. Don?t get me wrong Hadley?s story is going to be outstanding but aren?t all of Brayden?s stories. Let me tell you Gia Malone and Elle Britton b...

    This is book 3 of the 'Seven shores' series featuring four friends living in Venice beach, California which I recommend to read chronologically. 'Sparks like ours' is the story of Gia Malone, a professional surfer, and Elle Britton, world champion surfer and Gia's fiercest competitor. ...

    Goodness! Can?t believe I gave this a 4. Spoilers ahead so If you?re not up for it avoid this one big time. After eating ice cream and jogging around I?ve settled with 4. I love Gia and Elle actually they?re my favorite couple in this series but I feel bad for them. ...

    Wow, what a ride (even literally ;) I loved this story, the setting and the main characters. All of them, but especially Elle and Gia. Their chemistry goes through the roof, it's not only sparks, it's a complete fireworks of emotion. Definitely 5 stars! ...

    Wow, what a ride (even literally ;) I loved this story, the setting and the main characters. All of them, but especially Elle and Gia. Their chemistry goes through the roof, it's not only sparks, it's a complete fireworks of emotion. Definitely 5 stars! ...

    Part three in the Seven Shores series, which follows the lives of four friends in Venice L.A. This story is about Gia, the pro surfer. I was looking forward to her story, as I was intrigued by her from the first moment she was mentioned in book #1. She belongs to the top ten in the ...

    There's no doubt about it, Melissa has the gift of the gab. If you're looking for a feel good story, low on angst, with a great supporting cast, this might be just the ticket. Why not five stars? Although I was thoroughly entertained, I'm know next to nothing about surfing and foun...

    Add another extremely sweet romance to this series. I'm loving that in the last two books of this series the two couples have separated unhappily but mutually without the major drama, it just felt more real to me. The characters in these books are awesome and I just can't get enough of...

    I'm addicted and out of control with this series. 3rd book I've read in a span of 5 days. I'm glad that the fourth book isnt out yet or I'd have lost more sleep reading that too :) I love this feeling of getting hooked onto a series. That happiness you get after you finish a good bo...

    What really amazes me with Melissa Brayden?s books in general is her magical ability to write dialogues! I have a big problem with long dialogues in the books because usually to me they seem kind of forced and artificial, without a natural conversational fluidity, but that is simply ...

    My favorite in the series so far! Though, I think Hadley's could be the sweetest...we will see. I was highly anticipating this story as Gia has been the most mysterious of the group of friends...And this was pretty hot I have to say. The chemistry was great. The dialogue was witty. Th...

    I've virtually inhaled this series. Can't wait for Hadley's finale. ...

    I have really enjoyed all of Brayden's books. I was more excited when I first began reading her books and would preorder, and start them the day they were available. I am not that reader anymore, but I still enjoy them a great deal. I have liked each book in this series more than the l...

    Another wonderful story by Melissa Brayden. I had been waiting for this one as soon as I found out it would be a series because I wanted to know more about Gia. It was worth the wait :) Only one more book until the series is complete! I'm already looking forward to Hadley?s story. ...

    Melissa Brayden?s latest book, Sparks Like Ours, dealt with competitive surfing, job pressures, pregnancy worries, and of course, relationship problems. This is what I love about her books. She places her characters in many different realistic situations with dialogue to match. The k...

    Am I salty I was declined my request for this ARC? yes yes I am. But who do I blame my netgalley ratio is awful. BUT STILL, THIS IS ONE OF MY MOST ANTICIPATED RELEASES OF THE YEAR. ...

    I want to start this review by saying how glad I am that this is not a trilogy. There is one more and oh how I cannot wait for Hadley. Don?t get me wrong Hadley?s story is going to be outstanding but aren?t all of Brayden?s stories. Let me tell you Gia Malone and Elle Britton b...

    This is the third episode of the Seven Shores quartet, formed by Isabel, Autumn, Gia and Hadley. Of the two previous books, the first tells the relationship between Isabel and Taylor and the second develops the relationship between Autumn and Kate. So there will only be Hadley to match...

    I?ve tried to write four reviews on this book and it just isn?t working. I end up getting a little...grrrr...and how in the world can I be grrrr when Brayden books are so sticky sweet that I feel like I?m drowning in a cotton candy machine? I have nothing much to add to the revie...

    This is the third book in the Seven Shores series and is Gia Malone?s story. Slowly by surely Gia has worked her way up the surfing ranks to being second to Elle Britton, her cheerful and annoying nemesis. Being second has put her in the spotlight and circumstances force them into ha...

    Gia and Elle are competitive surfers. Elle is number one in the world, and Gia has always envied her. Gia is coming into her prime, and her skills are getting better and better. This could be her year. They have the opportunity to do some promotional work together, and sparks fly betwe...

    A rather good enemies-to-lovers story with a very promising beginning and a so-so ending. ...

    ? The copy provided by NetGalley and Bold Strokes Books Inc. in exchange for an honest review. ? What on earth has Melissa Brayden done? Did she...write a sports-themed romance that I can call a favorite? Maybe because it's surfing, which isn't a staple sport I hear about all th...

    This is book 3 of the 'Seven shores' series featuring four friends living in Venice beach, California which I recommend to read chronologically. 'Sparks like ours' is the story of Gia Malone, a professional surfer, and Elle Britton, world champion surfer and Gia's fiercest competitor. ...

    Goodness! Can?t believe I gave this a 4. Spoilers ahead so If you?re not up for it avoid this one big time. After eating ice cream and jogging around I?ve settled with 4. I love Gia and Elle actually they?re my favorite couple in this series but I feel bad for them. ...

    Wow, what a ride (even literally ;) I loved this story, the setting and the main characters. All of them, but especially Elle and Gia. Their chemistry goes through the roof, it's not only sparks, it's a complete fireworks of emotion. Definitely 5 stars! ...

    Part three in the Seven Shores series, which follows the lives of four friends in Venice L.A. This story is about Gia, the pro surfer. I was looking forward to her story, as I was intrigued by her from the first moment she was mentioned in book #1. She belongs to the top ten in the ...

    There's no doubt about it, Melissa has the gift of the gab. If you're looking for a feel good story, low on angst, with a great supporting cast, this might be just the ticket. Why not five stars? Although I was thoroughly entertained, I'm know next to nothing about surfing and foun...

    Add another extremely sweet romance to this series. I'm loving that in the last two books of this series the two couples have separated unhappily but mutually without the major drama, it just felt more real to me. The characters in these books are awesome and I just can't get enough of...

    I'm addicted and out of control with this series. 3rd book I've read in a span of 5 days. I'm glad that the fourth book isnt out yet or I'd have lost more sleep reading that too :) I love this feeling of getting hooked onto a series. That happiness you get after you finish a good bo...

    What really amazes me with Melissa Brayden?s books in general is her magical ability to write dialogues! I have a big problem with long dialogues in the books because usually to me they seem kind of forced and artificial, without a natural conversational fluidity, but that is simply ...

    My favorite in the series so far! Though, I think Hadley's could be the sweetest...we will see. I was highly anticipating this story as Gia has been the most mysterious of the group of friends...And this was pretty hot I have to say. The chemistry was great. The dialogue was witty. Th...

    I've virtually inhaled this series. Can't wait for Hadley's finale. ...

    I have really enjoyed all of Brayden's books. I was more excited when I first began reading her books and would preorder, and start them the day they were available. I am not that reader anymore, but I still enjoy them a great deal. I have liked each book in this series more than the l...

    Another wonderful story by Melissa Brayden. I had been waiting for this one as soon as I found out it would be a series because I wanted to know more about Gia. It was worth the wait :) Only one more book until the series is complete! I'm already looking forward to Hadley?s story. ...

    Melissa Brayden?s latest book, Sparks Like Ours, dealt with competitive surfing, job pressures, pregnancy worries, and of course, relationship problems. This is what I love about her books. She places her characters in many different realistic situations with dialogue to match. The k...

    Am I salty I was declined my request for this ARC? yes yes I am. But who do I blame my netgalley ratio is awful. BUT STILL, THIS IS ONE OF MY MOST ANTICIPATED RELEASES OF THE YEAR. ...

    Another fantastic novel from the pen of the formidable, Melissa Brayden. Gia Malone has worked for years to climb the surfing championship ladder and she?s finally one win away from being number one in the world. The only person standing in her way is the current number one, Elle ...
