I loved how their relationship was simple and/or easy. The author made you see, as the reader, the trials and tribulations the characters had to work through. One of my favorite quote from the story:
“I think we will always pay for our sins, Vera, but our sins have been worth it. Haven’t they?” She nods. “I’d walk through coals for you.” “You already have,” I say. “And I wish you didn’t have to. But it is what it is.” “And it’s beautiful,” she says. Then she gets out of bed and wraps her arms around me. It is beautiful.
The characters understood weren't perfect but they wanted their happiness. Even the sinner deserves some form of happiness. They were able to achieve it. Not alone but through the advice of friends and family. The end couldn't have been any better than it was. If you have read, book 1 then you need to take time ans start up book 2. You won't be disappointed.
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. Anyone who has ever felt totally out of their element will easily be able to relate to her in this book. She'd do almost anything to be with Mateo, but she didn't want to lose herself along the way.
Love, in English was about Mateo and Vera finding love and giving into it. Love, in Spanish was about them trying to keep their love strong. We don't often get to see what happens after the "happily ever after" in our favorite books. That's what we get here. Love isn't easy. It takes work and, often, compromise. It's a give and take. Karina illustrates this all with beautifully-turned phrases, gorgeous words and tons of feels. This was definitely an emotional read for me. I felt like I was being ripped wide open at times. But, it also had plenty of moments of the playfulness and passion between Vera and Mateo. Fans of Love, in English will not want to miss this one for anything.
Just to be a total tease, I have to mention the special treat you'll get at the end of this book. You know Karina's next book, Where Sea Meets Sky, is about Vera's brother, Josh, right? Well, you get to read the first chapter at the end of Love, in Spanish. All I'm gonna say is "Khal. Drogo." *faints* As if I wasn't already dying to read this book...
I received a copy of this book from the author in exchange for an honest review.
