Review: The Spanish Love Deception – Elena Armas

I had been soooo excited for so long for this book! THE romance reader who gives amazing recommendations on her Instagram page thebibliotheque who writes a book! This can’t be bad, I thought. In this blog post you’ll read what my thoughts are on this book!

A wedding. A trip to Spain. The most infuriating man. And three days of pretending. Or in other words, a plan that will never work.

Catalina Martín, finally, not single. Her family is happy to announce that she will bring her American boyfriend to her sister’s wedding. Everyone is invited to come and witness the most magical event of the year.

That would certainly be tomorrow’s headline in the local newspaper of the small Spanish town I came from. Or the epitaph on my tombstone, seeing the turn my life had taken in the span of a phone call.

Four weeks wasn’t a lot of time to find someone willing to cross the Atlantic–from NYC and all the way to Spain–for a wedding. Let alone, someone eager to play along my charade. But that didn’t mean I was desperate enough to bring the 6’4 blue eyed pain in my ass standing before me.

Aaron Blackford. The man whose main occupation was making my blood boil had just offered himself to be my date. Right after inserting his nose in my business, calling me delusional, and calling himself my best option. See? Outrageous. Aggravating. Blood boiling. And much to my total despair, also right. Which left me with a surly and extra large dilemma in my hands. Was it worth the suffering to bring my colleague and bane of my existence as my fake boyfriend to my sister’s wedding? Or was I better off coming clean and facing the consequences of my panic induced lie?

Like my abuela would say, que dios nos pille confesados.

The Spanish Love Deception is an enemies-to-lovers, fake-dating romantic comedy. Perfect for those looking for a steamy slow-burn romance with the sweetest Happily Ever After.


What did I think of The Spanish Love Deception?

This book really contained everything I could ever wish for and more: enemies to lovers, fake dating, office romance, there’s-only-one-bed.

It also deals with deeper topics, such as grief, sexism in the workplace, toxic relationships, trust and family pressure. It handles these topics with such care and in such a beautiful way. Elena did a great job on it.

Our main characters – Aaron and Catalina – were pure magic. The chemistry between these two smoll human beings is just amazing. They are both equally stubborn, which makes for fun situations. The both of them are such loveable characters. I will be thinking about Lina & Aaron 24/7 from now on.

I wish this book didn’t end and that it had enless pages. Despite its 487 pages, I flew threw this book in only 1,5 days. If it weren’t for sleep and university responsibilities, I would’ve probably finished it sooner than that. While reading it on my Kindle, I already bought myself a physical copy, oops. I just couldn’t stop myself.

This debut was everything I needed in a book! I’d buy a possible second book of Elena in the blink of an eye.

This is definitely a recommendation for everyone who loved The Hating Game by Sally Thorne!

Rating: 5 out of 5.
