I also love how it takes this romantic story and incorporates it with soccer and music. Both are fascinating subjects, and it's cool to see how each are so similar, as are Gabby & Adeline's roles in their respective profession.
This is absolutely one of my favorite books in recent years, and I feel honored to show support for such a great author.
The novel hits some of my sweet spots: women in love, sports, and music. Those elements delivered as promised. I really enjoyed the descriptions of the soccer games and the concerts, and the dynamic between Adeline and Gabriella is sexy, fun, and romantic. Those aspects are where this book really shines and what made it worth the read.
The storyline itself isn’t a whole lot to write home about. It’s got some standard arcs, and if that’s what a reader is looking for, then this is perfect. There’s the homophobic parents, the slightly taboo relationship, the lovers’ misunderstanding, and the almost losing each other. While there’s nothing really fresh here, the characters are likable enough to pull it off and make their happily ever after worth the work to get there.
There were a few things that made me cringe a bit (use of the slur “gypsy,” for example). Some of the plots were resolved without any explanation, particularly what becomes of the situation with Adeline’s family. That was glossed over and never had closure. This is the first book in a series, and if these characters are back, then perhaps there’s some better conclusion. The only reason it’s even important is that Adeline does some things that I couldn’t quite wrap my head around, given it’s never quite explained how she managed them under the circumstances.
Overall, I liked this one enough to see where the series goes. Whether that’s with new characters or a revisit to Adeline and Gabriella, I’ll be looking out for more.
For hot sensuality, gentle humor, and a lot of heart, this gets 4 stars.
From the first to the last page it was full of of emotions, but also funny scenes – I just say drunken T-Rex 😀 – but also hot ones.The chemistry between Adeline and Gabriella was on point, was there from the start and I can’t blame Adeline for falling in love with Gabriella instantly, she is really smoking hot. ❤
The book had, as much as I liked it, a little bit too much drama, which was why I had to reduce one star. I am also not really sure what I should think about the slow burn. On one hand I loved it, because it gave the character the needed depth and a possibility to develop and shine but on the other hand it was… making the book a bit long and maybe for some reader exhausting. I liked it but I wonder if a bit more “drive” would have been better. But when both were finally get together, it was hot. Damn, it really was. ❤
When you look at the book length you are maybe wonder if there are a lot of events and I can tell: there are. Of course a lot of the scenes gave the book as well as the character their depth, they were displayed in different aspects but partly I was wondering if it would have been maybe better to be a topic in another book since it is the start of a series.
The soccer topic was nice displayed. I loved the drive, the way how the scenes were described, Adeline and her teammates were fiercefully running over the field. It had action, it has tension and suspense. But also the bond of the team in those kind of books was displayed and I loved it. The other girls are charming and I can’t wait to read some of their stories. 😉
But also Gabriella’s music career was so dynamically told & shown for the reader. I was – like Adeline – mesmerized by the scenes where Gabriella was playing the cello. But I am pretty fond of music topics in books, so no wonder, I liked this pretty much.
The cultural diversity with especially Gabriella being the “Spanish beauty” in the book but also with Adeline having Irish roots was also well balanced in the book. For me the character were pretty authentic. Not only because of their descriptions but also because of their actions. I was more into Adeline than Gabriella sometimes but both were a blast. I really liked them both. ❤
For this debut work and the love story with sexy, smoking scenes and a lot of emotions, I give 4 out of 5 stars. 🙂
