Title: Maldeamores (Lovesick)
Author: Mara White
Genre: Taboo Romance
Released: 22 June 2015
Belén: I’ve loved Luciano ever since I can remember, desired him before I even knew what it meant. He’s always been the only man in my life—my constant protector, and his rejection only intensifies my need.
Luciano: I’ve never known a love more fierce than the one I feel for Belén. But I force myself to deny her no matter how much it hurts.
Our love is a sickness and both of us are infected.
Because there’s no cure for being from the same family.
I knew this was a taboo love story about two cousins who fall in love. Not unheard of but Lucky and Belen were more like brother and sister growing up. Putting that thought to the side I went into the story with an open outlook.
This was extremely well written and the depth and emotions portrayed were heart warming but heart wrenching at the same time. The connection between them was undoubtable and tangible from the onset. The background of their lives and where they lived was very atmospheric and I felt like I was there in the scenes with them. Most of the book was about them both trying to push aside their feelings for each other but a love so intense was undeniable to reject. It was told in differing POV so you could get inside the head of each character and understand the way they were feeling and why they did the things they did. Luciano was extremely hot and macho and very charismatic. I also love Belen and how she overcame her struggles with her feelings and her jealousy.
Overall this was a very intense and emotional read that left me reeling with my thought process after I had read it. However at the end of the day this was a passionate and engaging romance and one I would highly recommend. Love is Love! Four stars.
