Review: Kiss Me, Mi Amor

I really enjoyed this second book in Alana Quintana Albertson’s Love & Tacos series. This book focuses on Carolina and Enrique. I do think it’s better if you’ve read the first book in the series, but you can read it as a standalone. I’ve read that this is a retelling of Shakespeare’s The Taming of the Shrew, but I unfortunately can’t say I know that piece of Shakespeare’s work enough to tell if that is accurate.

This story is enjoyable although tough in places as Carolina’s father is very overbearing and she worries she may be going from one hard situation to another. The author handles these tough topics well, and gives insight into both Enrique and Carolina’s backgrounds, as well as how they do respect one another. Overall, I very much enjoyed the story and look forward to the next book in the series.



It turns out that a fake relationship is the perfect recipe for a love that sizzles hotter than Santa Barbara’s spiciest salsa—when it’s between enemies.…

Enrique Montez, smooth-talking heir to the Taco King empire, is man enough to admit that he made a critical error when he underestimated Carolina Flores. The agricultural hotshot should have been an easy conquest—who would turn down the chance to partner with California’s largest fast-food chain? But instead of signing her name on the dotted line, Carolina has Enrique eating out of the palm of her hand, and when fate steps in with an unexpected opportunity, Enrique is willing to do whatever it takes to capture her heart.

Growing up as the daughter of farmworkers, Carolina spent her youth picking strawberries in the fields of Santa Maria and vowing to improve the lives of people like her parents. Now, as one of only a few Latina farm owners, she has no time for romance and she’s certainly not about to let the notorious Montez brother anywhere near her business—even if just being near Enrique makes her skin tingle.

But she is willing to let him help get her overinvolved family off her back. When Carolina’s father and her lovelorn sisters mistake Enrique for her (nonexistent) boyfriend, she reluctantly agrees to a series of pretend dates to their town’s traditional Mexican-American holiday celebrations. Soon the fake feelings turn real and both Carolina and Enrique must convince each other to take a chance on love before their vacation romance is over.
