A ZEBRA SHOUT FRESH NEW ROMANCE
With talent, heart, and ambition to spare, the Fernandez sisters have each followed their own unique path, even when it leads to surprising destinations—in life and love . . .
Growing up, Lilí María Fernandez was affectionately known as the family “wild child.” The life of the party, she loved to dance, especially salsa, merengue, and bachata, and often sang beside her father during rehearsals for his trío group. But tragedy and loss have drawn out Lilí’s caretaking side, compelling her to become a victim’s advocate. These days, the special rhythms of the past seem like a distant memory. Until she meets Diego Reyes . . .
A police officer with the Chicago PD, Diego also has a talent for playing classical Spanish guitar. And Lilí soon finds herself inspired by his passion—for the music, for her, and for their shared love of familia and community. Can Diego reignite Lilí’s fun-loving spirit, persuade her to balance work and pleasure—and embrace her wild side once more?

Fly Girl’s Review:
A little music, baseball, a hot Latina woman, a sexy Latin cop and we have all the ingredients for a sexy sweet love story. And did I mention both are very much about family.
It was interesting to read this one with the Spanish language mixed into the English. I haven’t read anything like that and I really loved it. I definitely refreshed my high school Spanish and I think learned a little more. The story was based around the job that Lili does and Diego’s desire to protect her from herself. She is very giving to her Domestic Violence victims and that worries Diego to no end. It’s funny to watch him try to protect her and she thinks he either doesn’t understand her or is trying to take away her independence. Soon they realize they both have an affinity for family and music.
Their love song is sweetly woven into the tapestry of this story about learning to let go, loving again, and trusting in family. Priscilla does an outstanding job of showing us how Diego works through his guilt over his dysfunctional family and Lili’s attitude towards dating cops and lets us see how they discover their feelings for one another.
I can see why this series is so popular. Be sure to check out the stories of Lili’s sisters in Her Perfect Affair and His Perfect Partner. As a first time reader of Priscilla’s work, it sure was a pleasure to pick this one up.
