Belén: I’ve loved Luciano ever since I can remember, desired him before I even knew what it meant. He’s always been the only man in my life—my constant protector, and his rejection only intensifies my need.
Luciano: I’ve never known a love more fierce than the one I feel for Belén. But I force myself to deny her no matter how much it hurts.
Our love is a sickness and both of us are infected.
Because there’s no cure for being from the same family.
This book really surprised me! I went in unsure of what I was going to get, well what I got was an unconventional love story. However it was one of the most beautiful loves I’ve ever read about.
“I think that nobody can help who they love. That shit just happens and you’ve got to figure out how to deal with it. I don’t believe it’s a choice. Ever.”
That right there is the BEST explanation of this story. The emotions in Maldeamores by Mara White are so intense, your heart hurts along with Belén (aka Bey or Lenny) and Luciano (aka Lucky). I can’t even imagine being in their shoes. Close to each other from their earliest memories. We follow these two “Maldeamore” (lovesick), souls at they battle against what feels right, fits in place, means everything to them, all because it’s wrong, it shouldn’t happen, can’t be. They can’t fight how they feel and it tears them apart, brings them closer, destroys them and heals them all at the same time. It’s a whirlwind of feelings and will have you all over the place.
This book is a must read, go in with an open mind because it is NOT what you think. The struggle is real. The love is real.
