The companion to the highly emotional, scandalous and USA Today Bestselling love story - Love, in English - is finally here! LOVE, IN SPANISH is a sequel about 60K words, told from Mateo Casalles' POV. This is not a "rehash" of LIE and is instead a whole new story about Mateo and Vera on their quest to a happily-ever-after.
“She sat beside me on the bus – and she changed my whole life.”
Successful, wealthy and absurdly handsome – Spanish ex-football player Mateo Casalles seemed like he had it all. A high-society wife, an adorable little girl, and flashy apartments in Madrid and Barcelona only sweetened the deal. But there was more to Mateo than met the eye – a life of uncertainty and regret that colored his black and white world.
That was until Vera Miles came into his life like a shooting star. Tattooed, wild and young, Vera seemed like Mateo’s polar opposite at first. But you can’t choose who you fall in love with and the two lost souls did everything they could to be together, all while suffering the grave consequences.
Now with Mateo divorced and living in Madrid with Vera, there is a whole new set of challenges and setbacks facing the couple and rocking the foundation of their star-crossed relationship.
Unfortunately for them, the brighter the star, the faster they burn.
Just as satisfying as the first book
I love reading about Vera and Mateo. The struggles in their lives seem realistic unlike so many love stories. You can feel their love and their their pain almost as your own because their story is so well written. I loved "Love, in English" and I love "Love, in Spanish" just as much. I would read a hundred books about their love for one another.
Many obstacles to overcome in this story. Many factors to consider in there relationship.
So far it's not working for me. The connection I felt in the first one is longer present. Life feels to have gotten in the way of the intense angst they had for each other. Maybe it was more exciting when it was forbidden and taboo to be together. Now that they share a life together and are building new paths it's mundane and boring.
It seems the sex is different. Before there was the build up and the desire. Now it's like there relationship is based on it with nothing substantial.
I wish the age difference was not mentioned so much because I tend not to dwell on it as much as I do the cultural difference, but when Karina continues to point out Mateos age I get annoyed.
The battle continues with them fighting and proving to others that their age, culture, and lifestyle differences are not going to get in the way of the love they have for each other. Image is important and how people perceive you is even more important especially when you are a celebrity.
What I do like is the dilemma of living different lifestyles. Not because of the age difference but because it's more common in all types of relationships. People grow apart and develop different interests over the years and start heading down separate paths and doing things without there spouse.
Another dilemma is when one person is more mature than the other. Again this is not about age, but about the ability to accept and take on responsibilities in life. Like having respect and setting a good example.
I like the symbolism of fitting in and feeling accepted. Trying to find comfort in your own self. Belonging and feeling secure is another common element people try to work through.
Another issue is divorce and how it is affecting Mateo and the friends he had while married and then there is Chloe Ann. If these issues are not enough there is yet another one which is Mateo always running to Isabel. Every time she calls he jumps to attention. Once again he needs to learn who his loyalty is with and prioritize Vera before he loses her.
Karina says, "it's more than just sex with Mateo and Vera", but I disagree. I feel like that's the only common element in there relationship.
Well it's one battle after another and its depressing. I wanted a fun and entertaining story, but instead I got a stressed out story. I need a break from this drama. It's too intense trying to read through all the circumstances facing them. Not quite what I was looking for. It was okay.
Where can I find a Mateo lol....in love with the book
