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 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.
Five Boundless Stars
I was a bit worried that I would be lost at first, because I am the ultimate white girl(hahaha) and cant read, speak, or understand Spanish at all. But it was an awesome book. Vivian has been hurt so many times that she is not looking for a hookup when she goes to Spain to Study Abroad. Soon she meets the man of her dreams. She denies herself so much, but soon she realizes some things cant be denied. I loved this book. It made me laugh it made me cry. It made me fall in love with Spain and makes me want to go visit it myself. I absolutely loved Vivian. She reminds me of myself in the ways she thinks. I definitely can relate to her in some ways. This book definitely left me on a cliff hanger. I can't wait to see what happens in Maddie's story.
