I may have started this before? I don’t remember. But definitely finishing it this time. It is so good!
Set on the very edge of Patagonia, there is a girl school where there had previously been a tragedy. A mysterious illness once overtook the school. It is now reopening and in 1970s Argentina with a looming military dictatorship, Mavi can’t say no to a job that’ll take her out of Buenos Aires. I’m looking forward to this!
I’m really digging the creepy vibes of the cover.
Our mom picked this up at half price books on actual CD to listen to in the car!
I picked this book because the premise sounded interesting and because I love Alisha Rai’s social media presence, but I’ve somehow never read any of her books.
This book is about Rhiannon, the founder of a dating app a little akin to bumble who, despite some obstacles, has built an amazing company and Samson; a former football star who ended his career early. They have met once before, through Rhiannon’s app. Imagine both of their surprise when Rhiannon goes to an industry event to try and meet the head of a dating website she’s keen on buying to grow her company only to meet Samson, the founder’s nephew and new website spokesperson.
Rhiannon and Samson were both very likable characters and I loved their interactions. The complicating factors were heartbreaking, but how they dealt with them separately and together was heartwarming. The romance was great. The spicy parts were nice and spicy. The resolution was the plot so very satisfying.
I really enjoyed this book and I will definitely be picking up more from Alisha Rai.
I read it as an audiobook. It is narrated by Summer Morton and Brian Pallino. Their takes on the characters were excellent. I got the book through audible. I’m almost caught up on my backlog of credits! (Although, not the backlog of books…)
BookTok has right. Legendborn was amazing. I had to immediately go out to get the sequel.
This has been in my queue for a while. I’m glad I’m finally getting to it!
A third one in the series is out; so why not?
I’ve been hearing such good things about this book so I’m excited. Also this one of my purchases from NYCC this year.
I enjoyed the Dispatcher and this is the second one in the series!
