For me, this book was okay. The story somehow felt a little bit used. Their immaturity actually got on my nerves and I found myself just annoyed. If you're a big romance fan you'll still probably enjoy this book.
I found the character development of each of them done very well. However, the believability that these two would actually end up together I found difficult. Their conflicting personalities, introverted and shyness of the two makes me do a double take.
There was a lot to unpack in this book. Each character faces similar challenges which would make you think they would be perfect for each other. However, since they both have these challenges and clearly do not know how to overcome them, the relationship does not do much to help their situation. In fact, it actually hurts them.
We cannot choose who we love but we can choose our actions to express that love. I don't feel that Tara should let her failed attempt at relationship with Adrian keep her out of the game. I was disappointed that she didn't allow herself to move on but understood he was a first real love. There are a few typos but not anything that distracts from the story. Overall, good read for anyone who loves a tale of personal growth mixed with romance.
Tara is an older woman, way out of her depth and her comfort zone, living in a new country, having left everything behind to start again. She is fragile, emotionally immature, lonely and alone when she first lays eyes on Adrian. He is young and every bit as emotionally immature and insecure as Tara...but, they are drawn to each other. Tara, at first, fights her attraction for this man who is so much younger than she, but eventually gives in.
The character development is strong enough that I know that I would not get along with either one of the protagonists, and I really wanted to slap them both silly....drawing out an emotion from a reader is an author's finest work, and Cristina did that for me.
Four stars due to some editing issues, other than that...a good story.
