Carolina has been burned by love before
and there’s no way she’s ever going down that road again. She
has her children and her bakery and that’s all she needs.
Except for maybe a vacation now and then. She decides to head
from Connecticut to Miami for some time of fun in the sun with
her kids. There’s only one slight catch. Her mother asks her
to do a favor for a friend of the family and pick up his son
when he arrives from Cuba and bring him back to Connecticut
with her. Carolina is apprehensive, but agrees to do it.
Despite her resolve to have nothing to do with men ever again,
she finds herself drawn to this man. He’s attractive, nice,
and wonderful with the kids. Too bad he has a secret.
Gonzalo has just left his fiancé and he’s
looking for a way out of Cuba. He overhears a conversation
between a man and woman and decides to make the most out of
what he hears. He’ll go to Florida in Jorge’s place if he
doesn’t show up at the dock to leave the next morning. But
after Gonzalo arrives in Florida and is picked up by the
beautiful Carolina, his plans are suddenly changing. But will
Carolina be as open to him one she finds out he’s not who she
thinks he is?
The Other Face of Love was
a good book, though I found it a little slow in the beginning
and a bit hard to get into. After I made it past the first few
chapters, I was more involved in the story and what was
happening with the characters. There wasn’t really a hook that
dragged me into the story. Instead, I had to keep reading and
slowly become involved. The second half of the story was
really good and kept me involved. It was definitely worth it
to keep reading.
