I adore this moody cover. So mysterious and intriguing! Great story. :)
Lina writes unique characters with a particular poignant pull that can only come from the flawed but lovable. The struggles she gives her characters are real, real enough to empathize with, and she writes push-and-pull between reluctant love interests extremely well. Combine that with a talent for engaging dialogue and charmingly sweet scenarios grounded by just the right amount of angst, and you have a recipe for wonderful books from a wonderful author.
This is Hot! :)
