Review: I have heard of Mary Castillo. Her debut novels included Hot Tamara and In Between Men. I have to say that there was still a lot of the same old awkward phrasing, the kind you don’t see too often and nobody would ever use. However, the author did a great job rendering Isela as a flawed human character with the fear of not being able to make her rent and the clumsiness of standing next to a good-looking hunk like Sebastian. Man, does she get a wonderful surprise when she goes to bed with him. I mean, it literally blew me away!
Afterwards, Isela displayed a mixed combo of vulnerability and strength, which grew exponentially when she decided to get down to business and stop acting like a kid. Mary Castillo is a pretty good story-teller, but it just seems that she should stick to short stories instead of lengthy novels, which seem to go nowhere. Out of all her books, this was the best one. I liked all the little sayings at the beginning of each chapter—very original. Where does she come up with this stuff?
