I’m failing. My younger brother is getting worse, and my job - my duty - is to help him at all costs. We’ve tried everything modern medicine has to offer and nothing works. Nothing. Deciding to turn to unconventional treatments, we end up at Fire-on-the-Mountain, a holistic resort deep in the Rockies. In our search for medical marijuana, I find beautiful, free-spirited Hudson Shavell - a girl who may not only hold the key to heal my brother, but to fix me as well. Even though I can’t afford distractions right now, she’s all I can think about. All that I want. It’s funny how everything can change with one little SPARK
.***Though Spark is the first book in the Fire on the Mountain Series, it is a stand alone novel*** Five Boundless Stars
When I first picked up this book, I didn’t really know anything about it. I love the moment you start reading and you already know, that in some way, a story will change some aspect of your day. Hudson and Crew two souls that I didn’t know until now. Hudson is a beautiful girl, Loves her family and has never been in any kind of serious relationship. She’s just a pure person, in a world where she’s content. But then Crew walks through the doors and his cockiness changes everything. Their both unsure of what it all is but one thing is certain, they are falling for each other and pretty fast. But when you meet that person, it just happens. It’s a spark, that ignites and it’s hard to dull the flame. Hudson is the type of person, that is like a healer. She will be there, to figure out how to fix what’s wrong. That’s what she tries to do for Crews brother. And his brother is such a funny, good hearted boy. This story really just tore me apart. It was so gut wrenching and heartbreaking. Having to lose and try to regain some of what you’ve lost. I won’t deny that I hated Crew for a short time in this story. I wanted to just slap him, really hard, in the face and tell him to wake up. When someone is gone forever, the pain can be unbearable and sometimes you may say things that, you never really mean. Because you're just clouded with grief. I did cry and I’m not ashamed to admit it. When I told some people, what I was going to be reading. They said “were here for you” that should've clued me in to how it would feel reading this. Not every book I’ve read, has made me cry. Yes, you read something and you're like oh thats sad. But it doesn’t get to you. But Erin’s story of Hudson and Crew did. I love story’s about two people, that come together so passionately. “.. Just don’t wait around for the timing to be perfect, because there’s no such thing in life. You have to make it the perfect time.” Not only is it about these two, but it’s about family. Doing what you can for them, even for those you don’t really know. Medical Marijuana, is amazing for those who need it and I’ve seen it help when someone is going through cancer, so they can eat. I actually did do a paper on Medical Marijuana in the little college I did do, way back. I just really loved this story and I’m going to buy the paperback, so I can have in for my own personal library.
