Love, in Spanish
LIE
Karina Halle

LOVE, in SPANISH is a continuation of Mateo and Vera’sunconventional love story. I know several of you are wondering why this book was written when the first one was a standalone? There is a good reason for it- the fans demanded it. The request for MORE of this couples story lead to another sexy, heartfelt love story for us who loved Mateo & Vera. Unlike in the first book, Love, in English, where Vera tells us the story this one is told from Mateo’s pov. No fear, for those who don’t like retellings of previous books because this one is NOT that but instead an extension of their story. For those who read book one you know this couple’s struggle is a painful one with many challenges.“Do you think we will ever get a happily ever after?” -VeraI’m not going to lie, this book puts Vera and Mateo through the ringer. The scandal of their relationship, from book one, is still making headlines and messing up things in their personal and professional lives. Loneliness and, at times, isolation plagues this couple. Vera’s stubbornness and free-spirit puts a damper on Mateo’s life. Yet, Mateo remains passionate and devoted to her while managing the fires burning all around them as they battle to beat the odds.

I’m grateful that Mateo’s letter to Vera was included in this book. His letter addressed one scene in particular from the previous book. When I read that scene in the first book I wanted to chuck my kindle through the window but now that I have his pov I’ve come to terms with what happened in the past.

Karina Halle flawlessly delivers for her fans with this angst filled love story. One of the many qualities I love about Karina Halle’s writing style is she really knows how to pull out all kinds of “feels” from her readers. Another quality to her writing is the ability to make the reader feel like they are sitting in the movie theater watching the big screen.

Alright, the story behind this picture. 🙂 When I read ‘Love, in English’ we made my daughter into the cover. ➜http://bit.ly/PzJ7ej So, when this book arrived in the mail today I didn’t give my teen son a chance to say no. I did try to convince him to let me pencil in a beard and mustache for him but he refused. He did point out that he is blonde so he wouldn’t work for the cover but never fear…black and white photos fix the hair color. LOL

Synopis

“She sat beside me on the bus – and she changed my whole life.”love, in spanish cover
Successful, wealthy and absurdly handsome – Spanish ex-football player Mateo Casalles seemed like he had it all.
A high-society wife, an adorable little girl, and flashy apartments in Madrid
and Barcelona only sweetened the deal. But there was more to Mateo than met the
eye – a life of uncertainty and regret that colored his black and white world.
That was until Vera Miles came into his life like a shooting star. Tattooed, wild and young, Vera seemed like
Mateo’s polar opposite at first. But you can’t choose who you fall in love with
and the two lost souls did everything they could to be together, all while
suffering the grave consequences.
Now with Mateo divorced and living in Madrid with Vera, there is a whole new set of challenges and setbacks facing the couple and rocking the foundation of their star-crossed relationship.
Unfortunately for them, the brighter the star, the faster they burn.

BOOK ONE

He’s thirty-eight. I’m twenty-three.
He speaks Spanish. I speak English.
He lives in Spain. I live in Canada.
He dresses in thousand-dollar suits. I’m covered in tattoos.
He’s married and has a five-year old daughter.
I’m single and can’t commit to anyone or anything.
Until now. Because when they say you can’t choose who you fall in love with, boy ain’t that the f*#king truth.
***
To a restless dreamer like Vera Miles, it sounded like the experience of a lifetime. Instead of spending her summer interning for her astronomy major, she would fly to Spain where she’d spend a few weeks teaching conversational English to businessmen and women, all while enjoying free room and board at an isolated resort. But while Vera expected to get a tan, meet new people and stuff herself with wine and paella, she never expected to fall in love.
Mateo Casalles is unlike anyone Vera has ever known, let alone anyone she’s usually attracted to. While Vera is a pierced and tatted free spirit with a love for music and freedom, Mateo is a successful businessman from Madrid, all sharp suits and cocky Latino charm. Yet, as the weeks go on, the two grow increasingly close and their relationship changes from purely platonic to something…more.
Something that makes Vera feel alive for the first time.
Something that can never, ever be.
Or so she thinks
