NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER
A Most Anticipated Book of 2022 by Cosmopolitan, Goodreads, PopSugar, and more!
From the author of the Goodreads Choice Award winner The Spanish Love Deception, the eagerly anticipated follow-up featuring Rosie Graham and Lucas Martín, who are forced to share a New York apartment.
Rosie Graham has a problem. A few, actually. She just quit her well paid job to focus on her secret career as a romance writer. She hasn’t told her family and now has terrible writer’s block. Then, the ceiling of her New York apartment literally crumbles on her. Luckily she has her best friend Lina’s spare key while she’s out of town. But Rosie doesn’t know that Lina has already lent her apartment to her cousin Lucas, who Rosie has been stalking—for lack of a better word—on Instagram for the last few months. Lucas seems intent on coming to her rescue like a Spanish knight in shining armor. Only this one strolls around the place in a towel, has a distracting grin, and an irresistible accent. Oh, and he cooks.
Lucas offers to let Rosie stay with him, at least until she can find some affordable temporary housing. And then he proposes an outrageous experiment to bring back her literary muse and meet her deadline: He’ll take her on a series of experimental dates meant to jump-start her romantic inspiration. Rosie has nothing to lose. Her silly, online crush is totally under control—but Lucas’s time in New York has an expiration date, and six weeks may not be enough, for either her or her deadline.
APPLE BOOKS REVIEW
Get ready to be whisked away by Elena Armas’ loose follow-up to her enchanting rom-com The Spanish Love Deception. When the ceiling of Rosie Graham’s New York apartment splits open, she goes to stay at her best friend Catalina’s chic (if tiny) studio—after all, Catalina’s off on her honeymoon anyway. There’s only one problem: Catalina’s hot, Spanish, professional-surfer cousin Lucas is already crashing there. We listened giddily as Rosie and Lucas’ friendship slowly fills with romantic tension, particularly when Rosie ropes Lucas into some “pretend” dates as “research” for her own romance novel. The passion that explodes from this situation is simply heart-melting. Dual narrators Jill Araya and Noah B. Perez perfectly capture the dreamy pair—especially with Perez’s raspy Spanish accent. Whether or not you’ve dug into The Spanish Love Deception, this scintillating romance will leave you breathless.
The rollercoaster of emotions this book put me through is insane. I loved it sososo much.
What a great sequel to the Spanish Love Deception. Elena Armas did an amazing job again! Loved the book and every part of it.
I loved it. Loved Lucas Martín. Although it made me sad after I read it and fell in love with him only to remember there are no men like him in real life🙄❤️
