Carolina Perales is going on vacation with her two children to Miami. When an old family friend asks her to pick up his son who is arriving from Cuba into Miami, she has some reservations at first, but ends up agreeing.
Gonzolo Sevilla, a handsome Cuban professor, has been hurt deeply by his fiancé. When he hears a man decide not to leave Cuba on a boat bound for America, he sees it as fate telling him to start a new life.
Gonzolo is a good man and lying to Carolina about who he is does not sit well with his conscience. There is no doubt that Carolina and Gonzolo are attracted to one another, but Carolina is a single mom and must think of her two children first. Gonzolo is beginning to care for Carolina and her children, but how will she feel about him when she learns the truth?
Elena Iglesias’ novel is a sweet story of love and finding it when you least expect it. The characters are fun and convincing. The children are represented extremely well as children of divorced parents, mischievous, and innocently interrupting their mother’s romance! This is not a steamy romance, but it is very romantic and you could cut the sexual tension with a knife. All in all, I found The Other Face of Love to be a very charming and entertaining story.
