Overview

"From a little spark may burst a flame." ~ Dante Alighieri



A simple ember to dried kindling can ignite a raging fire.



I've made my mark and proven my loyalty to a man, a city, and a way of life. That loyalty has provided me with all the spoils of success. For the longest time, that hasn't included a woman at my side.



There is only one beauty that can bring my untapped desire to life.



I shouldn't have opened the door. Cracking open the stone and striking the flint is my doing. What follows is hers.



With something so intense, will this spark lead to a blazing inferno? Will we make it out of the ashes before everything I hold dear is ravaged?



From New York Times bestselling author Aleatha Romig comes a brand-new dark romance, Spark, set in the same dangerous world as Secrets and Twisted. You do not need to read the Web of Sin or Tangled Web trilogy to get caught up in this new and intriguing saga, Web of Desire.



SPARK is book one of the WEB OF DESIRE trilogy that continues in FLAME and concludes in ASHES.

Nobody can weave a web quite like Ms. Romig. She wastes no time commencing the jaw dropping surprises. I cannot wait to get more of Patrick and Madeline. Their chemistry is off the charts and now that her bomb has been dropped I’m DYING to get my hands on the next book.

I enjoyed Patrick & Madeline’s story; a second chance romance. The dark underground world the Sparrow world is set in is interesting and full of secrets. I can’t wait for the next two books to see how their story is going.

We first met Patrick in Secrets (Web of Sin #1) as a loyal and reliable friend of Sterling Sparrow. Finally, he's getting his story. Patrick's POV starts to tell how he became part of Chicago's elite. " ' ." A poker tournament brought Madeline to Chicago, she's a hustler in playing the game. Her beauty commands attention, no wonder Patrick was captivated by it. " ." Patrick and Madeline knew one another when they were teenagers surviving life on a daily basis. But something happened that got them separated and never heard or saw one another until now. The attraction is still there and the intimate scene was hot and sensual. But, there are so many secrets yet to be revealed between Patrick and Madeline. I have questions of my own after that cliffy ending. Ms. Romig has started another enthralling series. I couldn't put this novel down. Everything is perfectly timed and works all together in building of a good and suspenseful story. A must-read start of a series.

Aleatha Romig has proven time and again that she can craft romantic suspense like nobody's business. SPARK, the first book in her Web of Desire trilogy, is another example of this type of book done right, and it was fantastic from start to finish. An offshoot of the Sparrow Webs series, this trilogy focuses on Patrick Kelly and Madeline Miller. Without giving too much away, suffice to say that these two have one heck of a past, one that Madeline has done her best to put behind her by reinventing herself. Both she and Patrick are completely different people now, both with secrets that they're keeping from each other and those close to them. And, darn it, but what a jaw-dropping cliffhanger Aleatha gave us, revealing both everything and nothing. Like the queen that she is, Aleatha dropped that mic and walked offstage, leaving me wondering how in the world I'm going to make it until FLAME (Book 2) releases and gives up some of the answers. Fans of romantic suspense will eat this book up, and deservedly so. If a fast-paced read with a mafia vibe are your thing, make sure to add it to your TBR, and enjoy. ❤️

OMG - I love Patrick’s story!! I haven’t read all of the previous series and am a fairly new Romig reader, but she hits this one out of the park. As seems to be typical - this one is full of intrigue, hot s*x, and swoony men along with wonderfully strong women. Patrick and Madeline share a sweet back story and their reunion is combustible. I loved the drama, the build-up and that ending. You knew it was going to be a doozy. I absolutely, positively, can’t wait for Book 2. If you haven’t been Aleatha’d...what are you waiting for??!!?? I voluntarily requested and reviewed an advance reader copy.

4.25 stars--SPARK is the first instalment in Aleatha Romig’s contemporary, adult WEB OF DESIRE erotic, romantic suspense series focusing on Patrick Kelly, and Madeline ‘Maddie’ Miller. SPARK and the Web of Desire series is set in the author’s Web of Sin, and Tangle Web worlds but you do not have to have read the previous series to follow or understand the current timeline. Told from dual first person perspectives (Patrick and Madeline) SPARK follows the rekindling romance between thirty-five year olds Patrick Kelly, and Madeline ‘Maddie’ Miller. Patrick and Madeline grew up homeless on the mean streets of Chicago, scamming and stealing to survive but at age eighteen Maddie disappeared from Patrick’s life leaving our hero to search for the woman he would always love, believing she may already died. Fast forward to present day wherein Madeline Miller, a renowned poker player finds herself face to face with her past, a past that wants a reconciliation, and the truth about what happened years before. With Madeline in prime contention to win the coveted poker tournament, Patrick is caught between head and heart knowing that the poker tournament isn’t all what it appears to be. Suspecting Madeline isn’t telling the truth, Patrick hopes to coerce our heroine into telling the truth. What ensues is the rebuilding romance between Maddie and Patrick, and the potential fall-out when Maddie reveals the truth to our story line hero. Patrick Kelly is friends and works with Sterling Sparrow, the kingpin and boss of Chicago’s powerful underworld, and as such Patrick is aware of the truth behind the high stakes poker tournament. Madeline Miller is no longer in control of her life, and finds herself, under duress, ‘working’ for a man who has threatened someone she loves. Desperate to win the poker tournament Maddie struggles with her ongoing attraction to man from who she is keeping secret, sins of the past. The relationship between Maddie and Patrick is a second chance romance; a rekindling relationship between two people who struggled and won but Maddie’s secret is about to destroy them all. The $ex scenes are intimate, erotic and passionate without the use of over the top, sexually graphic language and text. There is a large ensemble cast of secondary and supporting characters including Sterling Sparrow and Aranaeae McCrie (Web of Sin Trilogy); Mason Pierce and Laurel Carlson (Tangled Web Trilogy); Reid Murray; as well as several notorious crime lords, and poker stars including Andros Ivanov, Marion Elliott, Antonio Hillman, goon Mitchell Leonardo, and concierge/ organizer Veronica Standish. SPARK is a story of betrayal and revenge; of power and control; of secrets, lies, servitude and danger. The premise is intriguing, edgy and decadent; the characters are animated and dynamic; the romance is provocative and sensitive. There is a twist to the story line that I suspected from the start, a twist that is about to complicate Patrick’s plans for revenge. SPARK ends on a cliff hanger-you have been warned.

Spark is Patrick Kelly’s story; we first met him back in Secrets, The Web of Sin Series. Patrick was the deliciously handsome driver who picked up Araneae McCrie and delivered her to his boss, Sterling Sparrow. It is all coming back to you? I pray that it does, after all, Secrets came out in 2018, seems like forever when Sterling Sparrow made his presence known. Patrick Kelly is Sterling’s right-hand man; he lives in the Sparrow ( bat) cave next to Sterling’s the Left-Hand man, Reid, the wizard behind the curtain. All three men met around the age of eighteen, enlisted and served together along with Mason, who found his way back to the pride. The four men have supported each other and made Chicago’s underground a little safer for children and homeless people. When Sterling Sparrow took over the organization, he needed people whom he could trust, and his most trusted allies are; Patrick, Reid, and Mason. These men trained together, serve their country together, and remained true to each other, by building a bond based on shared experiences. They took what happened to them before their training and put it behind, only moving forward. So, yes, each one of them has past lives, somethings in their past remain there and some show up out of the blue. As I finished this amazing story, the Song, Try by Pink came into my head, listen to the lyrics. Where there is desire There is gonna be a flame Where is flame someone’s bound to get burn Just because your burn doesn’t mean you’re gonna die You gotta get up and try Have you been Aleatha’d?

I was introduced to this author with the Consequences series, but have only read one other by her, that was more of a rom-com than her usual kind of dark romance. But this one grabbed me from the beginning. And even though I knew it was a series, and would probably have a cliffhanger, I can tell you that I did NOT see what was coming. From the very beginning I wondered what in the world happened to split up Patrick and Madeline. What would make her go to live, work, be "owned" by the horrible man that we know she works for. As well as what would cause Patrick to go work for what we know must be an organized crime situation as well. I guess it is maybe something we'd know if we'd read another series that I think this one branches off from. Which I haven't read. While this is definitely a dark romance, in a way, it's not anywhere near as dark, so far, as the first series I read by the author. In this book our main couple are good people, well, to each other anyway, and so that makes it a bit of an easier read. For me anyway. Not that Consequences didn't suck me in and totally win me over to Tony, a total bad guy. It wasn't just the cliffhanger that surprised me, but other events within the story that I didn't see coming, at least not the way they happened. I had other expectations and guesses as the story went along, and for the most part, I was not right about any of them, not really. And I love that! It kept me guessing and reading till the very end. Of course now I'm left hanging and waiting for the next book!

I could not wait for this book to hit my kindle. I started reading it this morning and could not put it down. And now I have finished it and have to wait for the next one to come out. Patrick and Maddie were kids on the streets, taking care of each other until one day she disappeared. Now 17 years later she is back and Patrick can't believe his eyes. Is she real or is he seeing a ghost? As we go back to the world of Sparrows, we learn more about Patrick and his past. His love for Maddie hasn't faded but his anger has gotten harder. Maddie is trapped in a world that only gets worse when she disappoints the boss. She can't win if she loses. So when she shows up at a poker tournament in Chicago, she can't believe her eyes when Patrick shows up in front of her. Can Patrick convince her to stay and he protect her? Will she stay with him? Can they move on from the pain of the past? I love this story but watch out for that holy hell cliff-hanger. I was so into reading, I didn't realize I was at the end until the cliff-hanger hit me square in the face. I NEED BOOK 2 NOW!!!! **I received a free copy of this book to read and review and this is my honest opinion**
