Amor Actually: A a Holiday Romance Anthology written by a dynamic Latinx Romance set of authors
Reviewing Anthologies can be tricky, as there are many authors and narratives to consider when thinking about the experience with the book. But this Holiday Romance Anthology, Amor Actually is an actual masterpiece that everyone should read this holiday season.
Picture the classic holiday movie Love, Actually. We all love that movie, no? All these individual story lines leading up to Christmas for each character. Well lets envision the cast now as a variety Latinx cast that features Queer characters and even poly couples, yes I said poly couples.
Amor Actually has a niche for EVERY romance lover.
It has sweet romance written by Priscilla Oliveras about a widowed, single dad finding love again with his son’s music teacher.
There’s a story about a reserved and recently divorced librarian that finds herself super attracted to the charismatic drama teacher at the school.
I definitely prefer the married couple story line in Amor Actually over the Love, Actually heart-breaking scene with Kiera Knightly. Let’s just say all three people involved get their HEA.
Amor Actually sets all those heart-wrenching scenes from the original movie right. Every couple in this book gets their deserved happily ever after.
If you like to read Holiday Romances that ensure swoons and deliver steam, Amor Actually is for you. The Latinx representation is phenomenal and the Queer representation is done so beautifully. I cannot help but say it again, Amor Actually is THE Holiday Romance to read this month.
