    Adoro a tua lista de “5 Favorites featuring delicious slow-burn romance”. Quatro dos cinco livros mencionados fazem parte dos meus favoritos. =D Confesso que decidi ler “The Scorpio Races” depois de ler a tua opinião, portanto muito obrigada por me fazeres descobrir um livro que simplesmente adorei.

    Boa sorte para a Bout of Books. 😉

    • Aw! thanks! 🙂
      O The Scorpio Races é mesmo fantástico, não é? Amo aquelas personagens, amo. Fico muito feliz por saber que o leste por minha causa adoraste. YAY! (。◕‿◕。)
