“Waiting On” Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we’re eagerly anticipating.
I’m dying to read Love, in English by Karina Halle! Like DYING!!! I’m not sure what it is about forbidden romance that gets me crazy excited with anticipation but it does.
Now keep in mind, not every author can write a story that is more or less taboo and could be somewhat controversial but since I’ve read a few books by Karina Halle, I have no doubt this book will exceed all my expectations. *fingers crossed*
He speaks Spanish. I speak English.
He lives in Spain. I live in Canada.
He dresses in thousand-dollar suits. I’m covered in tattoos.
He’s married and has a five-year old daughter.
I’m single and can’t commit to anyone or anything.
Until now.Because when they say you can’t choose who you fall in love with, boy ain’t that the f*#king truth.
To a restless dreamer like Vera Miles, it sounded like the experience of a lifetime. Instead of spending her summer interning for her astronomy major, she would fly to Spain where she’d spend a few weeks teaching conversational English to businessmen and women, all while enjoying free room and board at an isolated resort. But while Vera expected to get a tan, meet new people and stuff herself with wine and paella, she never expected to fall in love.
Mateo Casalles is unlike anyone Vera has ever known, let alone anyone she’s usually attracted to. While Vera is a pierced and tatted free spirit with a love for music and freedom, Mateo is a successful businessman from Madrid, all sharp suits and cocky Latino charm. Yet, as the weeks go on, the two grow increasingly close and their relationship changes from purely platonic to something…more.
Something that makes Vera feel alive for the first time.
Something that can never, ever be.
Or so she thinks.
Expected Release Date: 4/22/2014
Now that you know what the general gist of what this story is about, it won’t appeal to everyone and so, I thought it might be good to recommend a few books that aren’t quite as scandalous as Love, In English. The Artist Trilogy was absolutely fantastic, think Martin Scorsese meets Quentin Tarantino. If you’re a fan of zombies (think Walking Dead), you’ll love Donners of the Dead. And you’re welcome! I’ve never read the Experiment in Terror Series but everyone says I’m missing out!
