Just avoid the damn book is my advice. I thought Love, in English would be good, I was looking forward to reading it. But God almighty, it was like reading a fanfiction story, and not even a very good one. I can't belive that I actually managed to finish the book. But I did, and my first thought was to give the book two stars, but honestly the more I thought about it I realized that it was not worth it.

I won't even waste my time writing a long review, there are many good ones on goodread already and I don't want to waste more time on the book, I just want to get on with my life with a new book...

I wanted to love this book. I really did, but unfortunately for me it was a DNF.



The story was a about a young woman going to Spain to teach English. There she meets older, married man Mateo and they begin to fall for one another.



-> Keyword being married. I don't usually mind cheating in books, but this one rubbed me the wrong way. I prefer the married person to push the other away showing some sort of devotion to their spouse. Not Mateo... He pursued Vera and pushed his wife away. This was a very unattractive characteristic. When the book boyfriend loses his appeal I check out.



Vera however, intrigued me. She was real and I liked that a lot. I enjoyed reading about her emotions and how she realized that Mateo was off limits. Eventually though she gave in.



About halfway through I had to close the book. At that point I expected some sort of excuse to why Mateo was so uninterested in his wife. Was she mean? Had she cheated? Something to make me feel okay with him being with Vera.



The writing was good, but the storyline really fell short for me. ( )

This is the 2nd book I have read outside the EIT series. I love Karina's books. Her words grip you and pull you into another world. She can describe things that you can only imagine. Vera is a wild child that is the definition of a free spirit. Mateo oh what can one say about this sexy Spaniard. He is the epitome of what love can be. This is a slow burn type of story. You are dying for Vera and Mateo to do something other than pine for each other and when it happens .... wow.... just wow. When you see how her Mother is you understand why she is so rebellious. Mateo is what every girl dreams of for a partner. Loving, caring, and pure romance. ( )
