|My Cast Pick For Victor (I'm in love ahhh)|
Review: 4 Stars
What a beautiful, sweet love story this was. Great debut novel by Alice Montalvo - Tribue!
I loved Ellie right away. Her last relationship did not end well and she closed herself off to the dating world. When she meets Victor for the first time she finds herself feeling things she thought she would never feel again. Victor is this sexy Latin superstar who is taken with her the moment their eyes meet. Although Ellie tries to resist her feelings for him, he does not stop trying to win her over. Oh, how I love that man. The love scenes were very steamy which only added to the awesomeness of this book.
"I will not let you go that easily. I know what I want, and it's you. If you let me do this, you're mine. Do. You. Understand?"
What I loved most about this book (other than Mr. Sexy) was that they get their happily ever after in the end and I wasn't left hanging. I adored this book and can't wait to read more from this author.
