Before I plunge into my review, let me just say that I want to take a hard copy of LiS, grind it into powder, pour it into a spice jar, and slap a "Mateo" label on it. Eggs tasting a little bland, sprinkle a little Mateo on them, having a bad hair day, sprinkle a little Mateo on your head; not feeling so fresh down there, sprinkle some of that Mateo powder on the cooch. MATEO MAKES EVERYTHING BETTER! I think that the author should contact me so that we can get a plan in action. If you see a 3 a.m. As-Seen-On-TV infomercial for Mateo powder, you can thank me for improving your life. Okay, okay, let's talk about the story.
***Warning: Possible Spoilers Below***
Love, in Spanish (LiS) picks up where Love, in English (LiE) ended, but this time the story is told from Mateo's POV. The story is NOT a rehash of the first book; it's a continuation of Mateo's and Vera's life after their scandalous affair. This book is as important IF not more important than LiE, because it tells the story of the aftermath left once news of Mateo and Vera's affair goes public, and Mateo leaves his wife and home to be with Vera . This story is so remarkable and powerful because it shows that love, sometimes it's downright ugly, and just because two people love with all their heart and soul, even that isn't always enough to sustain the relationship.Read more ›
I was so in love with Vera and Mateo after reading Love, in English. Their love was so real and raw. I was thrilled to get more of them, even if it meant I knew there was likely difficult times ahead for one of my favorite bookish couples. I wasn't wrong about that. They were together in Spain, but things for them were still far from perfect. They were deeply in love and mostly happy with their situation. It was just outside forces causing problems. A lot was up in the air for them because they were both facing changes and choices. I won't get into all of it because I don't want to ruin any single bit of the story for you though. It was every bit as heartfelt and emotional and sexy as the first book, and maybe even more so because it was told from Mateo's POV... and Mateo is one passionate man.
I didn't think it would be possible to love Mateo more than I did in Love, in English. I was so, so very wrong. Being treated to an entire book from his POV is one of the highlights of my bookish year. I never once doubted his feelings towards Vera, but it was still nice to know that this charming, beautiful man was every bit in love with her as I thought. She changed his life... and he, hers. Vera was in a rough spot during this book. She was trying to adjust to life in Spain. She was having a difficult time finding herself and making her own place.Read more ›
Karina Halle's 'Love, In English' remains one of my absolute favorite reads of the year. Halle returns to deliver more of Mateo and Vera's volatile romance with 'Love, In Spanish,' told from Mateo's point of view. Not at all a retelling but rather a whole new chapter in their story, Love, In Spanish is an unexpected, unpredictable journey through the precarious reality Mateo and Vera have settled into.
Halle captures the voice of Mateo perfectly. I love a great story written from the male point of view, but more so, I love a great story written in the point of view of a character with a distinct personality, a captivating presence, well-developed and layered. Mateo is a man of control, staunch in his beliefs, his values, his culture. Everything that embodies Mateo is captured and delivered in his words, both his inner monologue and his dialogue.
Love, In Spanish reaffirms the epic love between Mateo and Vera the two first discovered in Las Palabras. That love ever present, continuing to grow, in many ways stronger than ever before. But as their love grows, so does the problematic reality of their current situation. The obstacles of the first book seem like a miniscule blip on the radar compared to all that they are up against now. So much change and turmoil surrounds them, the fragility of their relationship a tangible thing. Through Halle's vivid prose and brilliant dialogue, we're immersed in every torturous ounce of Mateo's physical and emotional struggle to maintain some semblance of control over his rapidly deteriorating circumstances.Read more ›
