Editorial Reviews


"Maldeamores is a whirlwind of feelings. This book is a must read, go in with an open mind because it is NOT what you think.  The struggle is real.  The love is real."  - Schmexy Girls Book Blog

"These characters are beautiful. This story is emotionally combustible. And this novel is sure to have you thinking and feeling. It's more than a five star read. It's unratable."  -Angie and Jessica's Dreamy Reads

"I swear, Romeo & Juliet have a run for their money on claiming the biggest tragedy." -Mommy's a Book Whore

"Maldeamores truly is a masterpiece, one that needs to be savoured but devoured. It has become one of my favourite reads of not only this year but recent years too. To say I loved this book would be an understatement of epic proportions."  -SubClub Books

"Maldeamores is yet another example of how Mara can take a subject matter that many would see as taboo and fashion it into something simply extraordinary." -Agents of Romance

"WOW!! Another passionate, loving and emotional book from Mara White!! Heed the warnings on this one because Maldeamores is unlike any book I've read." -The Book Bellas

"I feel like the story of Luciano and Belen HAD to be told.  Their bond goes deeper than family, deeper than mere love interests. Their connection is soul-deep, transcends the fictional world they live in, and will eventually bring you to your knees."  -The Scarlet Siren

From the Back Cover

"Exquisitely sensual, Maldeamores is the most unforgettable forbidden romance I have ever read." -Katy Evans, New York Times Bestselling Author of the REAL Series.
"Refreshingly 'taboo' - in a community where we're inundated by novels claiming this title, it's wonderful to finally find a book that not only truly lives up to the word, but is also well written, moving, and beautiful in its prose." -Stylo Fantôme, Best Selling Author of the Kane Trilogy

Something about this book immediately called to me... I'm not sure which sucked me in first: its name, Maldeamores (Lovesick), its stunning cover, or its jaw dropping blurb. Regardless, I’m just happy it was more than a book with a beautiful cover and a read-me-now-synopsis because it truly is so much more that, the real treasure is the story of Belén and Luciano.

I am not sure if I should be praising the author for writing such a phenomenal story, her bravery for publishing something so wrong and so forbidden, or for writing a story that captivated me so completely, that I stopped caring about wrong or right all together. My heart just took over. My heart did the thinking, and my heart decided that nothing this wrong could feel this right. Belén and Luciano's story far surpassed my expectations, with giant leaps and endless bounds.

Yes I was closed-minded.
And yes, there was a whole lot of judgments made.

Ultimately, my curiosity was greater than my initial distaste. Plus, I really love the word, “Maldeamores”. The way the word rolls off my tongue like it’s my native language, I just kept saying it over again; such a beautiful word.

"Te amo como se aman ciertas cosas oscuras, Secretamente entre la sombra y el alma."(I love you as certain dark things are to be loved, in secret, between the shadow and the soul.) -Pablo Neruda

Belén and Luciano know it's wrong but they can’t logically understand the attraction to one another. It was embarrassing and disgusting. Their fight was honorable but their love is beautiful. “We're both each other’s poison, but we're also each other's only antidote." I just wanted more - the loveable characters were so easy to get wrapped up in.

As much as I wanted to look away. . I couldn't stop reading.

"When the pen falls into our hands, we can't erase the past. All we're allowed is the chance to create a new ending."

I was given an arc, in exchange for my honest review.

Is this about an EXTREMELY taboo subject? Yes, BUT... don't let that stop you from reading a story of love that is nothing short of beautiful.

This book starts when Belen and Luciano are both young and follows them through the ages. You slowly see how somewhat of a 'crush' turns into so much more. Yes, they are cousins, but are close like brother and sister. It is most definitely incest, but the story is so eloquently written that all you'll see is love in its most raw form. You need to open your mind and put judgement aside for the sake of a book that will leave you gutted and vulnerable.

"I was yours regardless. I always belonged to you."

At one point, my brain couldn't even comprehend what was happening. I felt like I was intruding on such an intimate portion of these character's lives, but I couldn't stop reading. Couldn't. Stop. Reading. A love like theirs is all encompassing. A few times I thought to myself... 'wait, she did WHAT???'. I'm even pretty sure I was blushing through one whole scene. But, don't stop reading. Put away your inhibitions and keep going. The ending will ruin you. I'm still thinking about how it all ended.

What happens when your love for another is so strong that you can't walk away from it, but you know it'll ruin you both? You make the ultimate sacrifice.

One of the rare books that truly deserve more than 5 🌟
I read a quote once -" Love is rarely flowers and sunshine and rainbows and laughter .
It's more of pain and heartbreak and angst and yearning and craving .... so, why do we love ? 
Because we can't control who we fall in love with.that just happens " 
you ride the wave or you drown, that's kismet .
We’re all parts of a narrative that we didn’t write..... writes mara white. 
Luciano and Belèn are the doomed lovers, taking their love not to great heights of pleasure but spiralling in the depths of Hell, where their souls are continually tortured and destroyed by the intensity of their love for each other. The ties that bind them become their bane , keeping them apart, where they burn in almighty Hell and we as readers burn with them.
this world and society that we live in is made by us and the norms dictated by us , so why has love so many rules and diktats while hatred roams free.....why !!
This story gutted me , to say the least. It so well written, the language , the formatting is so perfect that you feel the emotions flowing from mara's pen straight into your heart and Lucky and Len are right there in front of my tears filled eyes, that is.
it's a beautiful, emotional, poignant , heart touching , sweet love story that will stay with you like Raw or Carnage or bright Side did.
I hope mara writes another book because I refuse to accept the story as is...I refuse !!
do you hear that need to give me another book 😢
this is an unputdownable book that you won't stop reading. And I still think about them ....and cry.
well deserved 5🌟 and many , many more mara white
