“If you are looking for a book that will give you a glimpse into Brazilian culture, traditions and families then look no further.  It’s a fun, fast read with a couple that has light-hearted chemistry.”
~ Under the Covers

This cover caught my eye from the first time I saw it.  And then I saw that it was going to be the book of the month for the online book club I’ve been trying to participate in so I knew I had to give it a shot.  I always love to read books that explore different cultures and in this one the author dug into her own Brazilian culture.  I couldn’t wait!  Plus, I admit I’m a bit of a sucker for the siblings’ ex trope.

A few things that stand out about this book.  There’s some fun banter between the main characters.  I think personality wise they were pretty well matched.  There was an ease to their interactions that I liked.  Going back to the culture, I really enjoyed seeing that in this book.  It was fun to hear about some things (especially food!) that are 100% Brazilian.  Some that I knew of and some that I didn’t and promptly looked them up. This also brought a nice sense of family to the story and if anything I would’ve loved to see that a little more in this book.

But then there were things that I’m not sure I was sold on.  Like I said, I like this trope.  But it can also be a slippery slope especially if it comes across as a competition between the brothers.  The seed of doubt is put in my mind and honestly for me in this book it was hard to let that go.

Our hero is younger than the heroine and he isn’t an alpha male so he’s not the first type of hero that I run towards.  But it added an interesting dynamic.

Overall, I’ll definitely read another book by this author but I’m not sure I’ll rush to read one in this same group of people (there will be one coming out later this year). If you are looking for a book that will give you a glimpse into Brazilian culture, traditions and families then look no further.  It’s a fun, fast read with a couple that has light-hearted chemistry.
