Vivian Bingley has big plans for her semester abroad in Spain…
Along with her BFF, Maddie, Vivian hopes to indulge her inner Art History nerd by visiting the best museums in the world. She also wants to tackle more practical concerns—like a less than stellar GPA in her major, Economics—with the help of a Spanish tutor.
But falling for her studly Spanish tutor definitely isn’t one of them.
Madrileño Rafa Montoya is the stuff study abroad dreams are made of: super studly and super smart. He also happens to be super into Vivian. With his wicked dancing skills and his passion for the arts, he tempts her to throw caution to the wind and live out her wildest dreams.
Only problem? Maddie wants Rafa, too, and Vivian promised herself she’d never settle for second best again…not after a hookup-gone-awry last semester left her heartbroken. Is it best for Vivian to protect her heart at all costs? Or is letting Rafa in worth the risk?
This book is a New Adult contemporary romance, suitable for mature audiences.
Studying abroad is challenging for Vivian Bingley. She’s an Economics major for practical reasons but in reality, she’s passionate about arts and being in Spain is just the perfect place to explore it. However, she’s having a problem with her classes and her grades are not that good. As per advice, she needs a tutor. Things got more interesting because this hot Madrileño tutor, Rafa Montoya has hots for her and apparently, her best friend / roommate Maddie has a serious crush on him.
Our main character has an issue with relationships. She wants a long lasting relationship and not just a hookup. She assumes Rafa is into that kind of relationships but she can’t help being attracted to him. I just wish she didn’t constantly deny her feelings to him so that her best friend wouldn’t be led on. If I were her, I’ll stake my claim on Rafa. Seriously, Rafa is a gentleman. I love how he respects Vivian’s space and patiently waits for her. GODDAMN IT. I WANT A RAFA MONTOYA. WHERE CAN I FIND HIM? HAHA!! I just adore this guy very much.
Overall, I really enjoy this book. I can’t wait to read the next one!
