Five stars rating book

I bought The Education of Caroline as soon as I woke up few hours after I finished The Education of Sebastian and of course I finished the e-book the same day, almost oblivious to my kids and husband.

If I raved about the first book, the sequel is even better!

Without spoiling the whole story, the book starts at 10 years after where fate once again brought them together once again. Misunderstanding, feeling of betrayal and hurt was there. My heart really felt for both Caroline and Sebastian.

The second book took you on a journey through Europe and Middle East with lots of moments to laugh and feeling like watching a movie. There’s moments you really wish you could skip because your heart scared to know what’s going to happen (well.. mine that is).

After everything, Im glad to be able to tell you that this story has a happy ending and will put a smile to your face for days. Personally, the book makes me smiles and recalled the feeling on falling in love, being in love and falling in love all over again.

Those who loves the raging hormones on book one won’t be disappointed with book two as there’s lots of box of condoms used in this sequel (yeah.. i know! i know!.. not fair!)

Last but not least, this series makes it to my favourite book list of all time. I have re-read them over and over and still over the moon for both of them.

One thing I do hope that this book will get the recognition it deserve so I can have them on paperback and dare I hope for a movie?  *sigh*

Did I mention I love this book? … sempre e per sempre

The Education of Sebastian (by Jane Harvey-Berrick)

“Ti amo tanto… sempre e per sempre”

Its a beautiful love story that makes you forgot boundaries, age gap and places written by Jane Harvey-Berrick.

This book is actually my very first e-book that made me downloaded Kindle app and joined Amazon.com. What can I say? I’m a book lover not an e-book lover. I love it when I can flip the pages and put them in the shelf among other great books instead of just staring at the screen.

Unfortunately, this book only available in kindle version. I actually came across this book through the author’s website for FSOG fanfic that focus more on Taylor’s POV. And after reading the excerpt from Sebastian’s POV, I was sold. I had to buy the book no matter what’s the form.

And….. Im glad to say, it was worth it!  Worth the effort, worth the trouble, worth the missing of flipping pages. ALL worth it!

With a loveless marriage and emptiness, Caroline found herself back again when she met little Sebastian that not so little anymore.    For Sebastian, growing up to a very dysfunctional family with no love to spare, he found love in Caroline.

The book made you re-think of the society and people in general. Its hard to see black and white, right and wrong and what are normal and what’s are not when it came down to love. And personally, it reminds me never to judge the book by its cover. Literally.

Almost like Romeo and Juliet, I was at the edge of my bed worrying for their love and wonder if its going to make it through. Jane has a way of writing that makes you emotionally on for the ride.

By the end of the story which i finished at dawn, I knew I had to have the sequel.

For those who’s sucker for romance, this is one of those book that will make your heart melt. With lots of witty remarks, a bit of angst, lots (Im talking about LOTS) of activities between the sheets (yeah you know what I mean) its a great journey of romance where the male character is not some young billionaire, the female lead is not young virgin and everything is at their disposal. No, this is pretty real and refreshing for a change.

And NO… you cant stop at this. YOU HAVE TO read the sequel, The Education of Caroline, to appreciate the whole journey of their love story. Don’t worry.. like I said earlier.. its WORTH it!
