The companion to the highly emotional, scandalous and USA Today Bestselling love story – LOVE, IN ENGLISH – is finally here! Love, in Spanish is a Love, in English follow-up novel told from Mateo Casalles’ POV. While Love, in Spanish touches on some events that happened in LIE (you know the ones!) it is a whole new story set a year later that continues with Vera and Mateo’s “happily ever after.” Note: It should be read after Love, in English and it is mostly new material (aka not just rehash of LIE).


“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.

***Love, in Spanish contains the first two chapters of Where Sea Meets Sky, a full-length Love, in English spinoff starring Vera’s brother, Josh Miles, coming March 2015 from Atria Books***

My Review ~ 5 Brightly Shining Stars


Their relationship was anything but ‘traditional’. It was a love that grew day by day. One that led Mateo and Vera through many ups and downs. Like many, their journey was filled with heartache and turmoil. Each day another ‘fight’ for the love that they both feel so deeply. With so many factors threatening their future, Mateo finds himself in uncharted waters. The uncertainty fuels his fear that the love of his life will some day be taken from him…that maybe their love cannot survive.

Love, In Spanish is an amazing addition to the story that unfolded in Love, In English. Told entirely in Mateo’s point of view, this story follows Vera and Mateo during the days after they act upon their love. The trials they must go through. While everyone always wants the happily ever after in romance, this journey reveals the strength and uncertainty for the couple. Each page was an insight into how deeply Mateo loved Vera. The doubts Mateo expresses will pull at your heart strings, but are the realities that this type of ‘forbidden romance’ would face.

This journey is a true glimpse of reality. Forbidden love is never easy. The choices that are made always affect those around them. Mateo and Vera are no exception. There is beauty wrapped up in the uncertainty. Readers will find themselves pulled into the depth of this love. Each word a beautiful reminder of the depths of Karina Halle’s skill as a writer. It’s a story that was begging to be told. A journey that you will experience through the eyes of a man in love.
