Translation of Love by Alice Montalvo Tribue ~ Blog Tour and Giveaway


Ellie Brooks has spent the past two years of her life building barriers around herself that are guaranteed to keep people out and her demons in. She doesn't want to get close to anyone for fear of being hurt again. When she meets Latin superstar Victor Garza, she is shocked at how quickly he is able to penetrate her armor. She doesn't want to let him in but can't deny the chemistry they have. He has the potential to heal her wounds and open her heart but she isn't sure she can let him. Will love be enough to keep them together or will Ellie's past prove to be too much for the pair to overcome?


I really did not know what to expect going into this story but WOW TOL is a beautiful,  well written, romantic story that sucked me right in and I devoured this book in one sitting.  Hmmmmm....maybe because of VICTOR GARZA a very sweet, hot, alpha male who steams up the pages with Ellie in this story! 4 stars.

Ellie first meets Victor at his book signing where she is there to pick up a book for her niece.  She has no clue who Victor is and she is not looking for love, but can not deny the sparks that are flying between her and this stranger. Victor just happens to be a Latin Superstar and finds it refreshing that Ellie doesn't recognize him and isn't like the typical money hungry women after him and after a second chance encounter in one day Victor believes that it is fate and takes a chance and asks Ellie out.

Ellie has kept herself pretty closed off due to a horrible previous relationship so she guards her heart carefully. It's wonderful to watch Victor wear down Ellie's walls and see their romance blossom. They face many bumps in the road, from people conspiring to keep them apart to Ellie's insecurities but the big question they have to face is if their relationship is worth fighting for? Can Victor get Ellie to trust him and not run as each of these obstacles get in their way?

Translation of Love is such a sweet romance story and I love how I felt like at the end that I wasn't left hanging, I was happy where Ellie and Victor's relationship was, no cliffhanger!  Great debut novel for Alice Montalvo-Tribue and I look forward to reading book #2 in this series about Jordan and Alex.

  2. Translation of Love sounds really intriguing. I love the idea of a romance blossoming between an "average" girl and a superstar. And I wonder if it hurts Victor's ego at all that Ellie doesn't recognize him. ;) Thanks for the great review.
