Welcome to my tour stop for 
SPARKED by Sheena Snow

Title: Sparked
Author: Sheena Snow
Series: Metal Bones
Genre:Young Adult, Light Sci-Fi
Date Published: December 16, 2015

They weren’t supposed to have feelings.

Metal will Clash

In a not-too-distance future, robots composed of metal for bones, electric cords for veins, and synthetics for skin are now available. For purchase. Eighteen-year-old Vienna Avery’s home is going to change forever, now that her mom purchased an Italian Chef Robot to cook and reside in their house.

Secrets will Unfold

The government claimed robots were indifferent, unthinking pieces of metal and elastic—assistance for the help of humans. Vienna never believed much of what the government said. The pieces didn’t always fit. And now Vienna knows why, because she’s uncovered the government’s secret: that robots have emotions, sucking Vienna into the underground world of feeling, thinking, and sovereign robots.

Sparks will Fly

Alec Cypher is everything a robot is not supposed to be: deep, dark, and dangerously human. And for some reason, he wants to save Vienna from the government’s prying, vindictive eyes. Going forward, Vienna will have to learn to trust robots and battle the growing feelings she never thought possible . . . feelings for the green-eyed, soul-searching robot named Alec.

** I received an ARC copy in exchange of an honest review **

Sparked is a light Science-Fiction Young Adult story written by Sheena Snow; since I read the synopsis it let me wanting to read the book so bad, but I have to confess, it kind of disappointed me, at first I wasn't too attracted for this book, because it was a slow beginning, but then it started to get more interesting and then I couldn’t stop reading! I tell you, this is the kind of book I like. However, the author’s writing wasn’t too good, I mean, it was good because it was simple, and for me —not being English native— it was a good plus to my read, but there were moments where it could be better.

Anyway, this book tells us about an eighteen years old girl whose life is going to change. She lives in a time where robots are normal —not our kind of robots but ones more sophisticates and advanced. And here comes the main plot. Vienna hates —actually doesn't trust— robots, she thinks they're not what the government tells the world. That maybe someday they could rule the human race. So while she tries to have a normal life surrounded by them, and trying to discover the secret that government is keeping —she starts to investigate and search more about their creation, how all started. But when you try to uncover something like that —something related to persons that are more powerful than you, it doesn’t end well. When she meets Alec, she’s a little catch unawares by his warning —someone’s trying to hurt her. So here all starts…

While the story goes on —the romance starts to bloom, but when you’ve been against them since the beginning, fall in love with one of them is not easy to accept, and when it is strong, sexy, and has beautiful green eyes, that’s even more difficult.

Overall, Sparked is a great read, even when there were moments I didn’t like, most of the time I really enjoyed it. The main plot is really interesting and innovative. Although, I wanted to know more things —or that sometimes they were better explained. BUT I’m looking forward for the second book, to find out what happens with Vienna and Alec, because the end of this one, omg! Just let you wanting more.
Book: +4

Sheena Snow, contrary to her name, lives in South Florida and has only seen snow once. But she would love for it to land on her eyelashes and sparkle in her hair. She loves painting, candle making, orchid shows, tattoo conventions, hockey games and library book sales! After college she landed a full time job but kept serving pizza on the weekends and writing stories about characters she wished really existed, characters who never gave up no matter the obstacles life threw at them. At the age of twenty-six, she sold her first book and bought her very first puppy, a wonderful Yorkie named Aladdin.
