Love In English

Oh gosh where do i even begin with this book it was such a whirlwind romance and i loved every bit of it. Gosh where do i start with Vera she was such a lovable character. you could literally feel her pain and struggle. Ugh and Mateo is he even real....wait of course not... but just imagine if he was every woman on this planet would be content...sigh a girl could dream. Anyways back to the juicy stuff like how i couldn't believe that her family treated her like that especially her sister. I totally understand her need to run from everything just that amount of hostility and someone always waiting for you to mess up it takes a toll on a person. And the irony isn't lost on me with her father i feel like he should have contributed more to the relationship with his children. Maybe Vera wouldn't have ended up that way. Another thing i would like to touch up on is while this is a very touchy topic i believe it was executed in the best way possible. Sometimes i don't understand why people make choices that make their life miserable. Life's short and i say live it to the fullest as cliché as that sounds its true why make life harder on yourself. The many things i loved about Mateo was that he truly loved Vera with all his heart and love has no barriers. I wish we were able to see more of their relationship unfold and them doing mundane things together(secretly hoping for a novella) ;) The only thing that frustrated me about Mateo was that he should have handled Vera with much care although he also had a lot on his plate, he wasn't the one being called whore. And although i understand what they did was wrong i still feel that they were meant to be with each other. They poured light in each others dark hole. Once a wise person told me (probably some character from TV) the heart wants what the heart wants and there are no stopping it. So go into this book knowing that logic be damned. Don't judge it because there is adultery in there that means its going to be a bad book not the case at all. it just means that the rainbows and daises are going to be harder to achieve. Sigh on that note i'm still reeling from this book and want to visit Spain one day who knows maybe Mateo is waiting there hahaha i kid i kid or am i ?.... A job well done Ms.Karina Halle you have blew my mind again. I always had a thing for soccer players now this just confirms it. 
Favorite Quotes “Love is like a thief, it robs you of all thought and logic, and all you have left is a heart that you can only pray is strong enough to survive the rest.” 

“He looks at you like…like you’re his favorite food.”

“Hope was a dangerous thing, I knew, but it didn’t stop your heart from latching on to it like a life raft.”
