I've literally been in Spain for 4 months (studying abroad), yet I can't find a Lucas Martín???? HELLO??

I'm telling you, and I never thought I would say this but, my boy Aaron Blackford has got some competition HOLY SHIT- idk which one I prefer so I'll take both.

I want this woman to write my future boyfriend cause these men are fucking perfect 😭😭😭

but I digress, this was so so cute. I want a relationship like Rosie and Lucas. I loved them so much, from the very beginning.

Rosie was so fucking relatable with how shy and introverted she was. like half the time I was thinking "she just like me fr".

I loved seeing Lina and Aaron again in their little appearances, they were as cute as always.

I wish we had seen more from the blooming friendship between Lucas and Aaron, I want them to be besties like Lina and Rosie.

also, finding out Lina and Lucas have a Portuguese side in their family?????? YES PLEASE (it was just a small mention but it made me so happy). I'm Portuguese so I really need to meet them 🙈 PLS MS. ELENA I'M BEGGING. I've never seen Portuguese representation outside of Portuguese books 😭

I can't wait to read more from the Spanish love deception world and obviously any other books Elena Armas puts out.

Also, I'm gonna add this to my favourites list and I know they're technically part of a series and when I love a series I only put the first book in that list representing the entire series but this is a series of standalones so it technically doesn't count.
