Living La Vida Loca by Belinda Jones

Book Title: Living la Vida Loca
Author: Belinda Jones
Main Characters: Carmen and Beth (narrated by Carmen)
Published: May 13th 2010 by Hodden Paperback
Genre: Romance, Chick lit
Setting: England (London), Argentina (Buenos Aires), Spain (Sevilla), and Cuba ( Havana)

Summary: Carmen has been feeling the need to break free for Too Darn Long. So when her equally frustrated friend Beth suggests the ultimate escape – dancing their way through a series of scorchingly-hot countries – she can’t resist!

There’s just one catch... they can only go on this adventure if they participate in a reality TV show, one intent on teaching them the mournful tango in Argentina, the feisty flamenco in Spain and the sassy, celebratory salsa in Cuba!

As they travel from Buenos Aires to Seville and ultimately steamy Havana, each dance has a profound effect on the girls – and indeed the sexy gauchos, matadors and dirty dancers who partner them...

But, when the sun goes down, do they have what it takes to go beyond the steps and free their hearts for love?

Review: I bought this book when i arrived in Pula, i thought it would be a great summer read, before reading this book i had only read one of Belinda Jone's books (On The Road To Mr Right), which i did like very much, i love road trip kind of books, and reading Belinda's books makes you feel like you are right there with the main character in Spain or Argentina and Cuba, or any other place her books take place in, i really love her writing and i got to say, i will be reading more of her books (i can't wait for winter so that i can read her new book Winter Wonderland).

Rating: 4.5/5
