    Elle/Ellie has trust issues and doesn't want to let another man

    Elle/Ellie has trust issues and doesn't want to let another man in to her life just to potentially destroy it and Victor is the latin rock star with his guard up not knowing if woman love him for him or for his money and fame. After fate steps in for a second time Victor has to have her no matter how many walls he has to break down in Ellie's mind because of her past and his crazy mother.

    Adorable love story and one of the best freeies I have one-clicked on through Amazon, I would have gladly paid for this story. I loved the flow of the story and I plan on getting the next in the series, Desperation of Love right away to see what Alex & Jordan are up to and hopefully see a bit more of Victor and Ellie!

    LOVE LOVE LOVE!!!!!!

    I can’t even tell you how much I LOVED this book!!! I found myself just smiling through most of it. Elle Brooks has been single for 2 years and decided after the bad relationship she had she wasn’t looking for another man anytime soon. Victor Garza is a gorgeous Latin super star who quickly starts to take down Elle’s wall she has up. This is just a beautiful love story with a few unexpected twists and turns. I love the writing and the story this is definitely a must read book.

    When I saw this book come up I read the synopsis and fell in love with the book and had to read it. It is a great coming to terms story about finding love again in life when you had such a bad start with it in your last relationship. It starts with Ellie literally stumbling into the lap of Superstar Latin Singer Victor. She has no clue who this guy is, but once she see's him she cant stop thinking about him. shd runs into him again that night and the rest is history. Ellie learns that it is okay to open your heart to someone else and trust them enough to love them and be loved back. Victor will literally move the World for Ellie and they both quickly realize what true, stop your heart, world stops turning for a moment, love is. Whn Ellie learns who Victor really is she felt betrayed and lied to and Victor has to show her that he did that because he just wanted to be a normal guy and she did that for him. This book teaches you about evetyday struggles that new couples experince and how to coupe and get through and that in the end no matter what your dealt, that love will always come out on top.

    I liked the book but, Elle was a bit too over the top. Elle is a girl who has had a
    rough time in the love department. She accidentally runs into Victor.
    A Latin Singer whom the girls swoon over. It a great concept and the the
    writing is just fine. But Elle is made into a MUCH to difficult woman who plans
    to NEVER love again. If the author had not made her into such a difficult
    person that was just leery it would have been much better. At times I just
    wanted to skip ahead but being a woman who loves to read I couldn't do it.
    Again a great concept that probably could have been a series I'm sure.
    Glad I had only paid .99 for it.

    Translation of Love is about a girl, Elizabeth, who came out of a horrid relationship broken. She spent years trying to put her life back together and build walls around her heart. She was determined to never let another man hurt her again! In comes Victor Garza, a hot Latin singer! My mind kept picturing Ricky Martin; I know he is gay, but still smoking!!! Elizabeth, or Ellie, has a hard time opening up to him, but thankfully he is a patient man. I love most that these aren’t naive teenagers; they are adults who have had lives and relationships that didn’t work out. And don’t worry; there are lots of hott Latin lover scenes¿!
    Now no story would be complete without a little chaos. In comes Mrs. Garza, the momma lioness!!! That woman has some claws! I could not believe the lengths she went to split these two up! I am hoping the story will continue with Ellie’s best friend Jordan (hint hint Alice). I don’t think I have ever connected with a story more than this one! It was just so realistic and touched my heart! Alice I applaud you!!

    Rating: 4.5 stars

    Cheers,
