The Book
Translation Of Love



Where to find it:


Synopsis:
Ellie Brooks has spent the past two years of her life building barriers around herself that are guaranteed to keep people out and her demons in. She doesn't want to get close to anyone for fear of being hurt again. When she meets Latin superstar Victor Garza, she is shocked at how quickly he is able to penetrate her armor. She doesn't want to let him in but can't deny the chemistry they have. He has the potential to heal her wounds and open her heart but she isn't sure she can let him. 

Will love be enough to keep them together or will Ellie's past prove to be too much for the pair to overcome?


REVIEW: 

First of all I love it when I can connect with a character. Especially when I can feel their emotions like they are my own. But I also love it when an author adds in a simple sentence that makes her fantasy world believable.
For instance:

I scurry to the kitchen, fish out a vase from underneath the sink and arrange the beautiful bouquet. When I’m done, I place them in the center of my dining room table, grab my purse again and head back to a waiting Victor. 

I totally have 3 maybe even 4 vases under my sink. Weird place to keep them, I kind of thought but now maybe not so much. I laughed a little and felt connected to Ellie in a new way.


The steamy scenes, I love me a good steamy-almost-all-the-way-sex-but-not-quite scene. The build up is fantastic. For instance:
 Bringing his lips down to my neck, he kisses it then slowly licks the same spot. He kisses the space just between my breasts and again replaces his lips with his tongue, taking his time licking. He lifts the hem of my cami so that it’s lying just underneath my breasts, exposing my stomach. Again he begins his delicious pattern of kissing then licking me, this time over every inch of my stomach. I tangle my hands in his hair and arch my back, letting out a moan of pleasure.

Victor is swoonworthy!

“I think I do. There’s something happening here, and you can deny it, you can run from it but it doesn’t change the fact that it’s there. We owe it to ourselves to see where it goes, don’t you think?”~VICTOR
