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.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Fabulous read!! 22 avril 2014

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."

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Wanted to love it!! 24 avril 2014
Par S. Patterson - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché|Achat vérifié
Don't get me wrong - this was a good story that definitely kept my interest, but I just didn't fall in love with it and was never able to fully connect.

There are many 5 star reviews for this book and I think that most people who enjoy reading contemporary romance and new adult will love it. While I did really like the story, it left me feeling a little conflicted.

The relationship between Vera and Mateo can only be described as an emotional roller coaster. They know from the beginning that things are going to be complicated, with Mateo being married with a daughter back home and Vera being only 23 to his 38, but they can't help their attraction for each other and end up falling in love anyway. The relationship was a slow-build, something Karina Halle is excellent at, and when these two finally made the decision to be together it somehow felt right even though it was morally wrong.

Cheating is an incredibly delicate topic, but I feel it was handled really well here. Both characters were aware of what they were doing and what the consequences would be, but they couldn't help their feelings for one another and decided to take a chance on love. Having insights into Vera's thoughts and her internal struggle fighting her feelings for Mateo definitely helped to soften the blow.

I found the first half of the book the most engaging -- the tension between characters is tangible and written in Karina Halle's signature style. Unfortunately, the middle just fell really flat for me and things didn't pick back up until the book was almost over. I also saw several other reviews mention the need for Mateo's POV, and I could not agree more. I really never connected with him or fully understood some of his actions, and it made me question him at times.

If contemporary romance and new adult books are your thing, definitely give this a shot. I know I am in the minority not being completely in love with this book, but I just couldn't fully connect like I wanted to.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A luminous love story, and Karina Halle's absolute best! 20 avril 2014
Par Jessica Sotelo (Angie and Jessica's Dreamy Reads) - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
Karina Halle has captivated me. Love, In English is a luminous love story; it's beauty and culture and romance and sex, and it's heartbreaking and taboo. It's a story of two would-be lovers doing everything right and everything wrong, when in the end, none of that matters because their fate was written in the stars. This book consumed me from the very first page and hasn't let go of me since. This story is like nothing I've ever encountered. The story is so original, so different, so raw and real. And the characters are the likes of which we've never seen before in fiction. I can't quite articulate all the reasons I loved this book. I'm still waiting for the rest of me to catch up, as parts of me are still in Spain, drinking wine under the sun and falling in love.

I absolutely loved the concept behind this story. Vera, a Canadian, takes on a job of sorts on what's basically an isolated retreat where Spanish professionals learn English by coexisting with English speaking travelers from around the world. The entire story line was perfection, thrusting 40 strangers together with the goal of teaching the Spaniards conversational English for the purposes of bettering themselves professionally. Of course, the antics that transpire and the relationships that develop in that environment aren't exactly part of the plan, but living in such close quarters, interacting with the same small group of interesting personalities for days on end, mixed with lots of wine, well, the possibilities are endless. And it is from such circumstances that the romance between the very married Spanish businessman, Mateo Casalles, and the young, wild, tattooed Canadian, Vera Miles, blooms.

It should come as no surprise to Karina Halle's fans that this book is beautifully written. I love how this story is paced. I love the build in the first part of the story, the magnets fighting to push away from each other, the struggle to do what is deemed right. I love that the story follows these characters outside of the bubble of the retreat, out into real life. I loved the way the book is separated into parts, the stages of this growing, floundering relationship. It should further come as no surprise how much you're forced to feel while reading this book. I was IN it. I can taste the wine, and feel the sun and the sweat. I shared their joy, and my heart broke in their pain. For 500 pages, I just FELT. And there's nothing I love more than a story that makes me feel. I have so much appreciation for a story that is unpredictable and uncertain the entire way through. This book could have gone in a number of directions and I would have been absolutely OK with any of those outcomes, because this story is that real. Almost too real, at times. I completely sympathized with Mateo, his torn emotional state, trying to deal with his feelings for Vera, but trapped in a marriage where a young child is concerned. There is no easy answer, no right choice, no quick fix. And while I was gutted and angered over some of his decisions, I completely understood every one of them, and why Karina Halle chose them. I was torn apart watching Vera in her grief. Who hasn't felt a sense of hopelessness... or understands that state of being so immersed in your own pain, that you can never imagine finding that love again? It was brutal, and written so superbly. It's romantic and full of love and hope, but it's the realness that consumed me. The pain and the heartbreak, the feelings of love and loss, it's not pretty, but it's so tangible. And as difficult and painful as it was to witness how these people dealt with stress and uncertainty, it was so perfect. It's a beautiful, raw, joyful, painful journey and I loved every bit of it.

Par Romancebooklover - Publié sur Amazon.com

I so wanted to love this book. The very beginning had my heart thumping, but then it was just so uneventful until the last fourth or so. I also have to admit it was too uncomfortable, not only with the cheating aspect, but with some of Mateo's actions, oh wow, what a douche. *spoilers* To allow his wife to spit and slap Vera and not defend her, and then when Vera defends herself, telling her to have more respect for the mother of his children? I wanted to kill the son of a @@@@@@! I have read, and loved, books like Thoughtless by SC Stephens, but in this book the cheating didn't feel electric and it really left a bad taste in my mouth here. Then there's Vera. I just couldn't identify with her. She seemed so immature so many times, Mateo just a man having a severe middle aged crisis. Neither of them (and nobody who breaks up a family) deserves these accolades, I just could NOT like them enough. Mateo has a little girl, aside feom the wife. And the connection the H/H shared felt forced. The ending, wow, so cheesy. Despite the incredible writing, I was bored most of the time and not happy during others. I will definitely rethink any kind of cheating book in the future because of my feelings for this one.

Look out book world! Karina Halle wrote a contemporary romance and its amazing! If I could give it 10 stars...I would. I LOVE reading Karina's books. Vera and Mateo are awesome characters. I fell in crazy love with the both of them. The supporting characters were awesome too. I think my favorite of those, was her brother Josh. Trust me, you all will fall in love with him too <3

Vera is super cool. By no means is perfect. She has her flaws, but owns everyone of them. She's a 23 year old astronomy student who goes off to Spain to teach English to businessmen and women. That is where she meets Mateo. Oh...Mateo <3

Mateo is sweet and hot!! He has temper that will get your blood pumping! Yes, Mateo is married. But have no fear and don't let that stop you from reading this amazing, beautiful and angsty love story.

You HAVE to read this!!

I am a huge Karnia fan and I think this one of her best books. I have no doubt that people are going to go crazy over Vera and Mateo.

So search no further people! Go get your book high on!!
