My rating: 5 of 5 stars
HOLY HELL ~ DO NOT MISS OUT ON THIS INCREDIBLE 5 STAR READ!!! Love, In English by Karina Halle was one HELL of an emotional journey! This is one book hangover that will take me days to recover from!!
No matter how I word this review, it will never do this book justice especially since this review will contain NO SPOILERS.
I had absolutely no idea how emotional a read Love, In English would be when I started it. I read the synopsis, which I rarely do, and knew this was a story I had to read.
I realize there will be people who won’t read this story due to preconceived notions after reading the synopsis/blurb, BUT they will be the ones missing out on not just an amazing love story but a brilliant read. Take any preconceived notions you have and throw them out the window. Love, In English was so much more than I expected. I had no idea where Ms. Halle would take this story – never predictable. In fact, at one point I nearly sent her an evil message for all the angst she caused me. There are so many pivotal scenes that had me either melting like I had just found my first love, or they tore me up – nearly destroying my heart. This was definitely my most emotional read so far this year.
Love, In English may be fiction but I can tell you that the characters and the emotion in this story are very real. Karina Halle has developed incredible characters in Vera, Mateo, Josh and the rest of the cast. I thought Vera was fabulous. She wears her heart on her sleeve. Once I got to know her story I loved her even more. There are things in our past and our day to day lives that shape us into the people we are… hence Vera. I never had a brother but if I had, I would want one as fun and supportive as Josh. Next is Mateo … words escape me. He will melt your heart – as well as your undergarments 😉 He’s a man who will keep you on your toes.
Love, In English is the whole package, a Sexy and funny, romantic and angst-filled adventure that will keep you turning the pages wanting more. Love isn’t always hearts and flowers. Sometimes the journey is painful and messy. But anything worth having, is worth taking a chance on. Make sure to add Love, In English to your TBR. Nic
