I have actually been reading this story in Penny's newsletters over the course of 2017 one torturous chapter a time, but re-read all of it now in one go as well. There was something oddly pleasing about the torture of reading only one chapter a month, but it was imminently more pleasing to read it all in one go as well. Penny expanded her story a bit in this version and I have to say that the added chapters add a lot to the overall story and I really, really enjoyed Luca's POV.
When I was reading the story in Reid's newsletters, I felt that Luca was not a very nice man, but Luca's POV in the expanded version gave me so much more information about the man that I couldn't help thinking that he is actually a very nice man who did his best to not take advantage of a student of his.
While the newsletter version was all in Anna's head and it was enjoyable as far as I'd rate it 3/5 in my enjoyment scale, Luca's POV simply upped the rating by a full star. That's how much I liked those chapters.
The one con I have with this book ... is that I am not actually a fan of the cover photo. The garish pink simply doesn't do anything to me but make me turn my head away. Thankfully I have a Paperwhite so all covers are gray.
Anna was funny; Luca was smouldering hot; and the whole lecturer/student tension was beautifully built up by the author. Great slow-burn.
I would have liked this to be a full-length novel, as Luca’s personal history and other matters could have been explored further. Nevertheless, this was a great, quick read with heart-thumping sigh-worthy moments. I recommend it.
I’m very excited to have found an author with great romance and comedy writing talent.
Anna and Luca - how I loved your story, and getting Luca's POV in the expanded version was awesome! I have to say that I am very greedy for all of Penny Reid's words, and this book is a lot shorter than her usual work, so at the end all I wanted was more words, more story, more Anna and Luca together! Hopefully we get lots more of them in the future.
If you have never read Tolstoy do not be worried or overlook this book for the title. I have not either and still fell for Anna and Luca...... Hard!
In normal fashion her writing is great, keeps you wanting more and most of all is smart and witty. Beautiful is a word I think Penny Reid shies away from, but that what she is, a beautiful writer.
