Présentation de l'éditeur

A standalone, contemporary romance about the ultimate forbidden love...

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 damn 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 Spanish 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.

Wow. Brilliant author and undoubtedly one of my very few favorite books. I would go for more than 5 stars if we could... and Vera wouldn't contradict me here.

You can read any of Ms Halle's book, whatever the genre (yes, she is that brilliant that she can handle anything), and you are just swallowed up in the action, living it without realizing you are reading fiction, and then you turn the last page but you never want it to end... and you are sent back to reality, feeling confused, on the line between reality and fiction, more than happy for the experience, but weird and marked.

You feel so much that when it's over you are hungover, exactly the same feeling as after an amazing trip and you are back to your real life, your head full of memories and enriching experiences... Except here we are talking fiction... Weird indeed, but it shows how amazing this author is.

As a former backpacker and grown-up traveller, I completely identified with the emotions the main character, Vera, goes through. The experience here bleeds with accuracy and once again, I completely forgot I was reading fiction.

As a woman, I was utterly moved by the story that unfolds, the emotions that perspire throughout the novel, and the difficult subject matter developed here. I loved the way it was handled.

Thank you Ms Halle, always a great pleasure to read you!

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A 6-STAR TREAT FOR YOUR SENSES - AN ABSOLUTE MUST READ! 20 avril 2014
Par Natasha is a Book Junkie - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
"You can't fall in love in a week."
"You can fall in love in a second. The heart has no regard for time."

Have you ever found a story that makes you feel as if you've always known it, a million different memories from your own life flickering before your eyes as you read it, filling you with overwhelming melancholy and longing, only to recognise it as nothing more than a youthful dream that never happened? I was completely unprepared for this book. Being a massive fan of Karina Halle's extraordinary brand of storytelling, I knew that loving this book would not be a farfetched possibility, but I never expected to connect with a story so completely, so personally, and so unconditionally, that it felt like I could taste every emotion, every mood, every hope, forcing myself to savour it for as long as I could because I never wanted to part with the characters. The is the story of two lone stars adrift in their own galaxies of unhappiness, whose lives change and gain colour the moment they meet. Against all odds, and even against their own better judgement, they find their home in one another, their story defying our preconceptions of the meant-to-be scenario and showing us how unpredictable and unyielding true love can be. Every part of this atypical fairy tale moved me, my heart swelling from joy one moment and crying from sorrow the very next, making this book one of the most surreally beautiful and yet truly realistic tales I have ever come across.

"Are you afraid that love will clip your wings?"
"No, I'm afraid that losing love will."

Vera Miles is a young woman in her early twenties, the black sheep in her family and a stranger in her own life. Her relentless pursuit of temporary `Band-Aids' for her loneliness leads her to a month-long stay in the Spanish countryside as part of an English tutoring program for Spanish-speaking residents. But what appears to be nothing more than just another desperate attempt to cure her own apathy in a long string of impulsive and sudden decisions on her part, proves to be the very place where Vera's heart would finally come to life.

Mateo Casalles is a man who feels stuck in a life he never truly wanted. A former soccer champion, he has had to put his passions aside to become the man everyone expected him to be, now trapped in a loveless marriage and living a life devoid of true happiness. When he meets Vera, the gentle-natured but heavily tattooed walking contradiction, he is enthralled by every single facet of her colourful personality. She lights up the spark in him that he believed was long gone, every moment spent in her company bringing forth more and more of the man he once used to be.

"You made me stop chasing the days. You made me hold onto them."

Regardless of their unquestionable mutual attraction, however, the obstacles before them are many and they are impossible to ignore. Vera's own life has conditioned her to value the sanctity of a family over anything else, ever her own happiness. She resists the pull between them with every fibre of her being, while her heart breaks each day further and further. When they finally succumb to the chemistry between them, all we see is the once-in-a-lifetime quality of their bond and the irrepressible desire that makes them gravitate towards one another. But finding love is not the same as keeping love, and what they both recognise as a life altering connection proves to also be their greatest challenge.

"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."

As we follow Vera and Mateo's hesitant romance, from a shy and hesitant flicker at first to a blinding supernova of emotions in the end, we are reminded of how much the right kind of love can change a person, even when born under difficult circumstances, and how desperate the human heart is to love freely, completely, selflessly. This is not a traditional love story, there are no heroes or villains in it, no black or white scenarios to cling onto, as every element of this tale is painted with just another shade of grey for us to ponder on and reconcile with our own lessons in life. You may feel inclined to judge these characters' decisions at some point in time, but remind yourself frequently of how unpredictable life can be and how little control we have over our own hearts.

"Sometimes you are stuck being the person you are and not the person you were. Or could be."

Love has no regard for time, age, geography, or what others believe we should feel - when it is true, love blooms against all odds and eventually finds a way to survive even when we try to extinguish it. Vera and Mateo found love when they were searching for themselves, and that love is palpable on every single page of this incredible book. Deeply passionate, heartfelt, unpretentious, this story is told with such raw honesty and indisputable skill, that we are able to understand these two characters to the point of feeling every single emotion running through them. We feel their uncertainty, their struggle, their desperate attempt to preserve their own integrity and do no harm to others, but we also feel their undeniable attraction, need for each other, knowledge that they are complete human beings only when in each other's arms. It is one of the most well-rounded stories I have ever read and it is also one of the most beautiful.

If you have never read a Karina Halle book, let this be your first one. But be warned, everything after it will pale in comparison...

"Love, in English, is love..."
"Love in Spanish is you."

5.0 étoiles sur 5 6+ Stars! Halle's masterful writing continues. Best Contemporary Romance thus far in 2014! 20 avril 2014
Par KOP - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
Adventurous twenty-three year-old free spirit Vera Miles forgoes her astronomy internship for the opportunity to travel to Spain and teach Spaniards conversational English, in exchange for room and board. While tatted up and pierced, Vera looks tough as nails, seems wild, and makes no excuses for her love of casual hook-ups and keeping people at arm’s length, throughout this story, we get a glimpse of the person behind the persona.
“I'm starting to think that most villains aren't evil—they are just misunderstood.”
She labels herself a villain, but that is so far from the truth. She’s intelligent, brutally honest, has a heart of gold, yet seems so lost, and is desperate to be loved. To feel worthy. To belong.

Thirty-eight year-old Mateo Casalles is a former fútbol player turned successful business man from Madrid. He and Vera become instant friends on the bus ride to their home for the next month in Acantilado. He’s charming, funny, sexy, passionate, sensitive, swoon-worthy and… married. YIKES! While, to the average person, Mateo may look like a man who has it all, as we get to know him we realize that appearances are truly deceiving. In reality, he might be even lonelier than Vera.
“You will see. Sometimes you are stuck being the person you are and not the person you were, or could be.”

As always, with a Karina Halle book, you get a story that is beautifully crafted. She breathes life into her colorful cast of characters and gives you such vivid imagery of their surroundings that you are suddenly transported to the town of Acantilado, Spain, feeling very much like a voyeur. You are submerged in her brilliant story and share in every bit of happiness, sexual tension, desire, anxiety, loneliness, uncertainty, and doubt that Mateo and Vera experience. You are fully invested in their story. Their forbidden love. Torn by the tough choices that have to be made. Wishing things could be different. I’m not going to lie, I was screaming and angry on one page, and then full on sobbing with the next. It’s very realistic. These characters are relatable. You will FEEL this book. You will be EMOTIONALLY invested in the outcome. You WILL need tissues. I’m not going to go into any further details about the story because it seems only fair that you should be able to go on the same amazing journey that I did.

Obviously, this book falls into a must read, as far as I’m concerned. I’d give it more stars if I could. Ms. Halle’s masterful writing continues to astound me. I'd say this is her best book ever, and that she should continue to write Contemporary Romance, but she seems to just keep stepping up her game. She has tackled numerous genres and appears to do it effortlessly. Her work has a dimensionality that is not easy to come by, which is why I will always read whatever she publishes.

Wow. I must first say that cheating is a big no no for me in books but I decided to step out of my comfort zone and read this book and I'm glad I did. This book sucked me in from page one. I loved Vera and Mateo. I loved their story although it was hard to read sometimes and very real.

Mateo and Vera meet at a four week long vacation of sorts where Spanish speaking professionals meet up with English speaking people at a resort. The point is to learn conversational English. Vera decides to do this during dinner break and meets the very married Mateo. During their time, they grow very close. Their lines begin to blur towards the end and then they are crossed.

Mateo is a 38 year old married retired soccer turned restaurant entrepreneur who speaks fluent Spanish and little English. He has a 5 year old daughter. Vera is a 23 year old college student who is covered in tattoos and piercings. She speaks no Spanish at all. She lives by the seat of her pants and never commits to anything. These two couldn't be more different but the attraction and pull they feel towards each other can't be denied.

This story really picks up once they return home, Vera to Canada and Mateo to Madrid. I liked how Mateo finally did the right thing and eventually left his wife though it was hard for him to do because of his daughter. It was obvious he loved Vera but he wanted to make the right decisions for his daughter. I loved them together. He brought the best out in Vera and vice versa. They really completed each other. She was his Estrella, his wild side... she brought out the life in him like no other. He, on the other hand, kept her grounded and gave her a purpose. He made her feel loved which she had never really felt.

The only thing I wish this book had done was expand on their relationship some more. I felt the ending was rushed. For a minute I didn't think it was going to have a HEA. I wanted to see their future with marriage and babies. I wanted to see Vera, Chloe Ann, and Mateo... how life turned out for all of them. We never get to see their interaction excerpt for the short scene. Maybe a follow up novella will be in the future for these two. I'll definitely be keeping my fingers crossed!

I highly recommend this book! You won't be disappointed.

Whoa, this story....First, I absolutely adore Vera and Mateo! Karina has given me yet another book boyfriend. Mateo is charm personified. He oozes charisma, sophistication and sexiness…. a WOMAN'S BOOK BOYFRIEND. He is freaking irresistible and I don’t blame Vera at all because I didn’t stand a chance either. Seriously, I LOVE HIM. And Vera is what I consider to be the “lost twenty-something.” She’s insecure, a bit confused but mainly, misunderstood–especially by HERSELF. She really struggles with her decisions and her inner turmoil makes for some of the tougher moments in the book. Still, there’s a certain vulnerability to her that is completely endearing. No matter that she's the “villain", or even impetuous at times, I completely connected with her.

Now, for the “taboo” of the book…..I admit that I don’t like adultery/cheating in my books and generally, I avoid some because of it. BUT that wasn’t the case here, quite the opposite actually. Yes, the realities of their relationship brought with it a lot of heartache. When you look at a situation like this in black and white, how could it not look “wrong"? How do you find the “good” in LOVE stemming from ADULTERY? Who wins? IMO, THIS is where Karina’s pure talent shines. The way that these characters came to life, their emotional connection...I felt every hurdle, every disappointment and every blow. Their love felt so profound that I just wanted them to WIN. I fell so hard and felt so much that, I was rooting for the “wrong” side almost immediately. This story wove a spell over me and when it was over, I was devastated to say goodbye. This book made me FEEL.EVERY.LITTLE.THING. I am a sucker for a good story but, give me a GREAT and WELL WRITTEN story? SOLD. Then, thrown in two great MCs? DONE.

Ultimately, this is a story about LOVE. The kind that you feel in your bones, the kind you can only half-live without and the kind that you only HOPE happens to you. And, THAT is why I cheered for the “wrong” team, because how do I ask anyone to give up something this profound? Why would I want them to?

This is a different kind of romance. For anyone who's willing to take a chance, Karina Halle does not disappoint with Love, in English and I implore you to READ THIS BOOK.

I am a huge fan of Karina Halle and her various series, but this stand alone really stands out. As always, the writing is honest and real. I love that Vera's internal monologue is painted with a blue streak, because mine is too! The characters and the setting are so vividly painted I feel as though I just spent a month in Spain, teaching English. As the weather warms up, this was the perfect sunny day read, complete with laughter and heart wrenching sadness. This book bravely dives into the grey area of life, with some pretty black and white consequences. I just loved it! It is deep where so many other contemporary romances are shallow. It lingers in your mind when so many other books blow away after a day or two. Do yourself a favor and spend some time in Spain with Vera and Mateo, and of course, the stars
