A standalone, contemporary romance....
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
"A three-dimensional love story with depth, hope, and heart-wrenching consequences. This book makes me want to drop everything and fly to Spain." - K.A. Tucker, author of Ten Tiny Breaths
"I have to say that this is the most emotional and beautiful book Halle has written. She's written great love stories before but there was nothing else to distract you here, no horror, no action. This is all emotions, real and gritty and hard." - Ginger Read Reviews
"Love, in English is so much more than just boy meets girl. It's a story of two people from opposite sides of the world that find something in each other that makes them question what it is to live and what it is to just be alive. I dare you not to be moved by the story of Vera and Mateo." - My Book Muse
"I fell in love with this story and all of the characters. Halle created such a passionate, romantic and magical story that it is in a word....Unforgettable. Love, In English is addictive complete with amazing writing and many heartwarming moments that anyone looking for their next brilliant read should look no further." - Shhh Mom's Reading
"Stormy. Passionate. Gripping. A tumultuous story with ups and downs, with shades of gray and vibrant colors. It's a story about choices and emotions, bravery and fate, of boldly being yourself and fighting for the destiny we choose." - Vilma's Book Blog
