Chasing the Wild Sparks by Ren Alexander

What would you do if the love of your life doesn’t want the same life you do?
Hadley Beckett has failed in not only her career, but as a daughter, friend, and girlfriend. 

Hadley’s longtime boyfriend, Finn Wilder, who is Richmond, Virginia’s local daredevil and favorite sportscaster, isn’t afraid of anything…except for LASIK surgery, dancing, marriage, and kids—the last two being what Hadley desperately wants with him. Finn leads a very public life; however, he leaves Hadley in the dark about most of it. Despite his public persona, Finn is viciously protective of his private life. Excluding their families, his best friend and Hadley’s friends, nobody knows he has been dating her for three years. Finn loves Hadley and he knows she wants to get married. Nevertheless, he has his own reasons for not wanting to marry her.

Fearing at 33 that she will soon be too old to have kids, Hadley wants Finn to change his mind and marry her, yet her insecurities about his seemingly charismatic personality and his constant rebuffs have her questioning her aspirations. With conflicting advice from her friends, Hadley concludes she should take things into her own hands.
Would he change his mind then?

Finn pressures Hadley into moving in with him, but being traditional, she wants to be married first and she wants to stick to her beliefs, just as he clings to his own. Finn has tolerated Hadley’s stubbornness long enough and he’s reaching his breaking point. 

Finn Wilder has his own story to tell.

Review by Kayla

 I was given a copy of Chasing the Wild Sparks by Love Romance books blog for an honest review. I really enjoyed Hadley and Finn’s relationship. It seemed like they had real life problems. I like books that I can kind of relate to. Hadley’s longtime boyfriend is afraid to commit. Like most men he isn’t sure he wants to be tied down and have kids. Finn loves Hadley but he has his own reasons for not wanting to marry him. Hadley is 33 and afraid that she will soon be too old to have children and she wants Finn to change his mind and marry her but he keeps rebuffing her questions about it. Finn pressures Hadley to move in with him but being traditional she feels they need to be married first. Finn has been tolerating Hadley’s stubbornness but he’s reaching his breaking point. This book was really good and had a lot of passion and love and compromise. I give this book 4 out of 5 stars!

Ren Alexander was born in Wheeling, West Virginia, but grew up in a nearby tiny, historical, college town in the Northern Panhandle of the state. She graduated from West Liberty University, where she received a B.S. in criminal justice. Although interested in that field, her true passion was reading and writing. She currently lives in Detroit, Michigan with her husband, two daughters and two cats. "Chasing the Wild Sparks" is Ren's first novel.
