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.

My Thoughts:

Elena Armas has done it again! I love her slow burn romcoms that have me laughing out loud and speed reading to find out what happens with these characters! There's a little bit of spice for those who enjoy it but nothing too crazy. Rosie and Lucas are so cute together. There's a little bit of something for every romance lover in this book. Plus, I loved seeing what Lina and Aaron were up to from The Spanish Love Deception.

The banter between Rosie and Lucas was absolutely perfect and the way he treated he made my heart melt. The little Spanish phrases he would say under his breath and directly to her made me want to die 😩😩😩😩 Armas has this ability to create fictional men like no other. Somehow they are so swoony (if that's even a word) and adorable and then they have the ability to say such smutty things that will have you binging this book.

Easily a 4.5⭐️ read that I am so glad I finally got to! I highly highly recommend this to those who love a good romcom with a little bit of spice. Especially those who loved Lina and Aaron's story as we get to see them as well. Armas is definitely an auto-buy author for me now!😍😍😍
