Product Description

Product Description

A standalone, contemporary romance about the ultimate forbidden love...

He’s thirty-eight. I’m twenty-three.

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 damn 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 Spanish 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.

4.5 'Estrella Bright' Stars.

Read and Reviewed for: Perusing Princesses Blog

“He was a respected athlete and business owner. And I was a twenty-three year old astronomy brat with tats and an old movie star’s name.” - Vera

Love, In English is a powerful story of a complicated love told in the most honest of fashion. A story of how two people from completely different worlds find friendship at an isolated Spanish retreat, and connect on a level that is quite simply, out of this world.

Vera Miles is a sassy, smart, pretty Canadian astronomy major and a free-spirit. She isn’t afraid of self-expression and wears her skin like a canvas. Her love of the Universe is depicted clearly by the way the constellations are inked across her skin. The idea there is something bigger out there, something more appeals to the girl who is regarded as the ‘black sheep’ of the family.

With college out for the summer, Vera decides to spend a month travelling. As she leaves Canada, her stop in London is brief as she embarks on her real adventure to Spain. She’s managed to get a summer job at Las Palabras helping native Spaniards improve their ‘conversational’ English skills. It’s an all-expenses paid trip so a no-brainer for the young woman who just wants to get away from all the ‘family drama’ back home.

Mateo Casalles is an ex-footballer and a national hero. After suffering a terrible knee injury a few years prior, Mateo left the field and embarked on a new venture in the restaurant business. He is well groomed, wealthy and… married.

Vera and Mateo find they have almost nothing in common, and yet at the same time, both find a familiarity in each-other. Conversation is easy and soon a friendship in the resort starts to form.

5.0 out of 5 stars Bloody Amazing 29 April 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This book is lovely, lovely, lovely. Like a night in with the fire on, a furry blanket, a bottle of wine and a huge box of chocolates. There is no critiscism, it's well written, good story, great characters. The ending felt a little rushed but other than that.....perfection! Buy it, you won't regret it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Loved it 1 July 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This book had such a unique story line it had me hooked, I have never read anything like this plot.

Vera is a wonderful character, she’s straightforward, free spirited girl, she’s a dreamer who loves the stars, she’s covered in tattoos and needs an adventure.
Now onto Mateo phew he’s a hottie with a seductive accent, he is strong and confidant with a sensitive side.

Vera and Mateo are poles apart so very different from each other but I think that is why they work together, the chemistry between them is intense.

The journey you follow these two characters on is full of internal struggle and tension, heartache brought on by there complicated circumstances.

The struggle that Mateo and Vera endure to find there own happiness is beautiful, topped off with the cultural Spanish lifestyle that will leave you with a smile and a blissful sigh.

This book has a forbidden romance with a realistic quality, it’s a slow burn romance that draws you in.
My hat goes off to Karina Halle for this beautifully creative work of art through her words.

5.0 out of 5 stars Just "WOW"!!!! 18 July 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
5 Beautiful Shining Stars!!

This book has been in my TBR pile for a while - "What on earth was I thinking?" "Why did I take so long to pick it up?" Answer - "I have no freaking idea but I should of done it sooner."

I had the pleasure of meeting Karina at a signing recently and she is such a lovely, beautiful person and the cover - OMG! I adore it, it's simply stunning.

And so onto my review:

This is the first book of Karina's that I have read but trust me when I say that I will be reading more - I absolutely loved and adored Love in English.

He’s thirty-eight. I’m twenty-three.

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.

So, that in a nutshell is the blurb but this book is so much more! The writing is amazing, so well thought out, the characters all so well developed - I felt like I actually knew them, they seemed real to me like I was on the side lines watching their journey.

I felt a whole bunch of emotions whilst reading this book....heartache, guilt, love, lust, despair but I sat there feeling each and every one, at one point I was a snotty mess with tears streaming down my face.

Vera is an extremely likeable character and incredibly believable.

Wow! This woman's got talent! I gobbled up this novel in one sitting, unable to put it down after the first couple of pages. Halle's got a knack for edgy, flawed characters and a gripping story line. You will get so invested in her characters that you are sure to develop an addiction where Halle's novels are concerned. Once you've read one, you'll want to read them all. Consider yourself warned!
