Seven years ago, Sam and I were best friends and the goofiest computer nerds in New Jersey and, possibly, the world.
We also made a pact to meet up and get busy if one or both of us were still virgins by our twenty-fourth birthdays.
I assumed that was a silly pinky swear we’d both forgotten about until Sam shows up at my twenty-fourth birthday party, ready and willing to make good on our bargain.
Boy is he ready…
Gone is the lanky kid with glasses who made me snort-laugh when we played video games. In his place is a sex god with massive biceps, designer clothes, and a smolder that transforms women to quivering puddles of lust.
I’m out of my league with this new Sam.
But I’m also every bit as drawn to him as I used to be.
So, when he dares me to give him a chance to prove he’s still the same trusted kindred spirit I remember, I agree.
What do I have to lose, aside from my V Card?
Oh, right. My heart…

Sparked is the fourth and final book in the V-Card Diaries by the fabulous Lili Valente. I’m loving this series and have been waiting for Jess’s story! The brilliant game designer finally gets her second chance with her childhood best friend. Jess hasn’t seen or heard from Sam since high school graduation and now he shows up at her twenty-fourth birthday party with a job offer and to collect on their pact to sleep with each other if they are both virgins when they are twenty-four. Sam never forgot about Jess. She’s his person and it was time he finally came home for her. She’s still as beautiful as he remembers, and sassy and spunky and smart. He just needs to convince her to take a job and spend time with him. Except he’s keeping a few secrets. He’s not about to go down without a fight. He just needs to convince Jess he’s worth it. I love Jess and Sam! I love that he grew up to be extremely handsome, but he doesn’t even realize it. And Jess is so funny and cute. Together they are a match made in heaven. I loved seeing Evie and Harlow again. I will miss these characters!
Life just threw me a curveball. I have to find a new place to live, but it must be in-district, because my son has his heart set on riding the bus to his first day of kindergarten.
When my brother’s sexy best friend suggests we move in with him, I have to remind myself the offer was for his spare bedrooms… not his bed.
Graham was my childhood crush and being in proximity with him is bringing back all kinds of feelings I thought were long gone. Looks like this time, he’s experiencing them too.
The problem is, now I have a son to think of. We’ve been through enough, and I can’t risk his heart… or mine.
My gorgeous new roommate is off limits. Not only is she my best friend’s little sister, she’s a single mom looking for help… not a hookup.
From the moment she’s under my roof, sparks fly, and suddenly the girl I’ve known my whole life becomes the woman I want long term.
I know I should stay away. Addyson deserves better than sneaking around, but she’s afraid to give me more. Plus the little boy she’s trying to protect… he’s already stolen my heart.
To let her get away… let them get away, would be a crying shame.
