I wanted to like it And there were parts that I did like I liked the setting and the correct usage of Spanish and Lina But I just couldn t like Ren, no matter how much I wanted to I struggled with the first half but felt better about the second half.The cultural aspects of Spain and art were very well done I think if you re a fan of the author s previous works, you ll probably like this one It just wasn t my cup of tea. [[ FREE PDF ]] ★ Spanish Heart ✑ What s the point of finding yourself if you lose your heart in the process Ren Molson should be chasing a bright new future Instead, she s spent the last two years floundering in a small town community college She hates being the only lesbian she knows, and a virgin She s tired of watching her friends move forward while her momentum stalls Most of all, she s sick of feeling lost and confused about who she is or what she s supposed to do with her life Desperate for a change, Ren hopes to use her Spanish class tour through Spain to remake herselfTrue to her plan, as Ren travels through Spain, she learns about herself than the country she s visiting What she doesn t expect is to fall in love with her beautiful young tour guide, Lina Montero She ll have to decide if her life can handle any uncertainty and just how far she s willing to go in order to become the person she thought she wanted to be I almost bailed because I found Ren really unlikeable I m glad I stuck with it though because she does have a turning point, and the book becomes a lotenjoyable after that. I ve never fallen in love with a tour guide, but I did develop a massive crush on a hospitalera once in Spain thinkhostel worker host She looked just like Lizzy Caplan, so although I always have to look up Lizzy Caplan s name and have no idea what she s been in I promptly transferred my crush to Lizzy Caplan I ll never meet her, but then, I ll never see the hospitalera again, and at least Lizzy Caplan occasionally pops up on a pop culture blog I follow.Anyway I want to love this, because I ve never fallen in love with a tour guide, but I did develop a massive crush on a hospitalera once in Spain thinkhostel worker host She looked just like Lizzy Caplan, so although I always have to look up Lizzy Caplan s name and have no idea what she s been in I promptly transferred my crush to Lizzy Caplan I ll never meet her, but then, I ll never see the hospitalera again, and at least Lizzy Caplan occasionally pops up on a pop culture blog I follow.Anyway I want to love this, because lesbians In Spain But I had a hard time with Ren, who is just so youngand then I m not sure if that s fair, because she s also believable in her irritating youthful na vet , and I should be thrilled about that believability.The basic premise is that Ren, the heroine, is on a two week college organised trip to Spain Conveniently, the only other students on the trip are her two best friends conveniently, their professor has a medical emergency and isn t available to chaperone them what 20 year olds require constant supervision, I ask conveniently, the tour guide hired for the trip happens to be a hot lesbian who is very clearly into Ren from the get go.But Ren s not interested, because she has a Master Plan have a one night stand or something akin to it so that she ll finally be rid of her dastardly virginity and, once university starts up again in the fall, be the suave ladykiller player she s pretended to be all along Somehow she doesn t think that hot lesbian tour guide who s totally into her would work for this.The thing is it s irritating It s irritating that she pretends to be a Don Juan it s irritating that she pretty much bites Lina s head off anytime Lina tries to make overtures it s irritating that she thinks that once she s had sex with a stranger she will be magically cool and have all the right moves and never be awkward with a girl again Rensweetheartit doesn t work that way But the other thing is as irritating as it can be, it s also not unbelievable I never thought of it in quite Ren s terms, but I understand feeling like there s a barrier of whatever kind that has to be broken through I understand wanting to be somebody else for a while and feeling like it s easier to do that away from home.She s just so young Twenty, but I think in a lot of ways a young twenty Really, really ready to fall head over heels in love Fortunately Lina has at least some sense, because although they both start I love you ing when they ve been together for less than a week, Lina does manage to convince Ren not to propose and then run away to Spain so they can be together Lina does seem to think that Ren s just the bee s knees, so she might also be a little addled, but then I suppose you can t mess with feeeeeelings I do not have high hopes for this relationship I know romance novels don t work that way If they re together at the end of the book and 98% of the time, that s the case , it s going to work out forever and ever they re going to rent a UHaul and move in together and get a dog and live happily ever after But personally, I think it s going to go south when Ren gets clingy and codependent and Lina realises that she misses Spain too much, and that Ren who will still be perfectly willing to go to Spain to be with Lina will have nothing in Spain besides Lina Also, Lina is apparently lying about something, because she claims to have visa issues related to her dual US Spanish citizenship that require lots of extra paperwork for her to come to the Statesexcept it doesn t work that way having dual citizenship means that you don t need a visa for either of the countries in question Although it can make your taxes a mess What are you hiding, Lina So I applaud Ren for being a fairly believable mess, but I don t think I m going to develop a fictional character crush on her anytime soon This book ended much better than it started I did not like Ren at all in the beginning She seemed like a spoiled, immature brat She did get better as the story went on but the first part of this book almost ruined the entire thing Just my 2 cents This got better for me as the story progressed I had a hard time relating to Ren in the beginning Maybe I m too many years past being a young adult. Was this really only ten days It felt like an eternity The main character is a whiny, immature, idiotic, rude, obnoxious, entitled in many ways, not least of all being the stereotype of the disrespectful entitled obnoxious American tourist , insufferable, illogical, hypocritical asshole, no matter how hard the author tried to spin it as her being lost in life, and in a foreign country And for a supposedly good Spanish student, she really does not make any effort speaking it, nor does she spe Was this really only ten days It felt like an eternity The main character is a whiny, immature, idiotic, rude, obnoxious, entitled in many ways, not least of all being the stereotype of the disrespectful entitled obnoxious American tourist , insufferable, illogical, hypocritical asshole, no matter how hard the author tried to spin it as her being lost in life, and in a foreign country And for a supposedly good Spanish student, she really does not make any effort speaking it, nor does she speak it better than a beginner, even if I could forgive the obvious difficulties she had understanding it.I could not believe for one second the interest and attraction of her love interest for her, which was certainly not helped by the utter lack of chemistry between them I almost DNFd it so many times, and started skimming almost right away.And a few notes on the Spanish setting 1 Has the author even talked to a bilingual Spanish person No bilingual uses random words of their first language like that Nor does anyone fluent in English not know what a nickname is And hippie is literally the same word in Spanish Especially if the character has an English speaking parent with whom she spent years in the US.2 The worst McDonald s I ve ever eaten was in Canada, certainly not Barcelona Food in general in Barcelona and Spain is really good.3 I find itthan highly unlikely that the tour guide just happened to go to the same lesbian bar the main character just happened to randomly spot around a big touristic point Barcelona is a big city with athan decent queer community On that note, how hard is it to use the internet to find lesbian bars and clubs in 2012, both for the author and her main character which she does in Madrid This was an interesting coming of age story set on a short school trip to Spain The main characters were reasonably rounded and the emotional growth of Ren was nicely handled This story, while not breaking any boundaries, was well written and edited Boldstrokes Books have some of the best editors in the Lesfic world , the plot was well handled and even if the ending was complete saccharine it was a very effective and diverting romance read P.S Rachel should have been sponsored by the Spanis This was an interesting coming of age story set on a short school trip to Spain The main characters were reasonably rounded and the emotional growth of Ren was nicely handled This story, while not breaking any boundaries, was well written and edited Boldstrokes Books have some of the best editors in the Lesfic world , the plot was well handled and even if the ending was complete saccharine it was a very effective and diverting romance read P.S Rachel should have been sponsored by the Spanish Tourist Board, this book will make you want to book travelling holiday in Spain Combination travelog, young women coming out of her shell and romance The main characters are an interesting pair and they have a decent supporting cast Overall a good story with lots of sun drenched scenery.
