Synopsis (Goodreads):
Having just broken up with her boyfriend, London Spark is not in the mood to be hit on. Especially not when she’s out celebrating her single status with her sisters. So when a very attractive man pays for their drinks and then slips her his number, she passes it right back to him with a ‘thanks, but no thanks’. As the business administrator for their family’s event hotel, the Spark House, London has more important things to worry about, like bringing in new clientele.

As luck would have it, a multi-million-dollar company calls a few months later asking for a meeting to discuss a potential partnership, and London is eager to prove to her sisters, and herself, that she can land this deal. Just when she thinks she has nailed her presentation, the company’s CEO, Jackson Holt, walks in and inserts himself into the meeting. Not only that, but he also happens to be the same guy she turned down at the bar a few months ago.

As they begin to spend more time together, their working relationship blossoms into something more. It isn’t until their professional entanglements are finally over, that London and Jackson are finally ready to take the next step in their relationship. But between Jackson’s secretive past and London’s struggle with her sisters, London must question where she really stands - not just with Jackson, but with the Spark House, too.
Thoughts on Starry-Eyed Love: The middle Spark sister is up for finding romance and...well, timing is everything, isn't it? I mean, London first interacts with Jackson when she was fresh out of a new relationship and she knows herself well enough to know he'd only be a rebound. Seeing as she wasn't interested in making a new mistake so fresh off her last one, she declined his overtures and moved along.

Then she meets the big guy again a few months later and HEH. He pushes all her buttons, my friends. He's hunky and intelligent and he's still interested in her. Working together only deepens their attraction to one another, which makes things a wee bit complicated since there's a whole business aspect they need to factor in. As in, Jackson doesn't feel comfortable pursuing London romantically when he holds such power over her in the scope of their business dealings.

Yeah, complicated.

As for Jackson, he takes a few missteps with London. Mostly because he wasn't great communicating certain things at the right times. Then there's a whole other issue regarding a past relationship that tangles things up even more. COMPLICATED!

A chance meeting at the right time, some sisterly friction, a woman who's close to burning out, and a man who doesn't always see what's in front of his face. *thumbs up*
