Love, In English by Karina Halle
Expected publication: April 22nd 2014
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.
-- As seen on Goodreads
I will read anything Karina Halle writes. She creates unique, flawed and realistic characters that are far from perfect. I find it so refreshing to get away from the usual supermodel type with a flawless body, perfect personality and completely fake-as-hell characters that crop up again and again. As always, I have extremely high expectations, but I haven't read a book written by Karina that I didn't like, so I know I'm in safe hands.
What books are you looking forward to reading over the next few months?
