FLASHED by Zoey Castile {review}

Hi there! Today was a busy day because we've been preparing for the tropical storm, Dorian. So please, keep the Caribbean in your prayers. Stay safe everyone! I may lose electrical power and my phone signal, so I'll be away for a couple of days.

In other news, I'm celebrating the book birthday of Zoey Castile :) FLASHED is the third book of the Happy Endings series, and here's my review!
Book title: FLASHED
Publication date: August 27, 2019
Author: Zoey Castile
Genres: Fiction, Adult, Romance, Contemporary
Publisher: Kensington Publishing Corporation
Pages: 272
How I got the book: Sent for review; the publisher provided me a copy in exchange for my honest review.

I will start by saying that for me, FLASHED was wayyyyyyy better than STRIPPED and HIRED! I don't mean this in a bad way because I enjoyed all of them, but FLASHED is my favorite book in this series! I love the writing style of Zoey Castile and the storyline was SO good. Like I've said before, you can feel the characters turning into life with Castile's writing style. (I can't say this about every author!).

You have no idea how excited I get every time I see a latinx character in a book, and there has been a lot of latinx characters in this series (YAY!). But in FLASHED, there's a main character who's Mexican/Puerto Rican!!! So ok, I may be biased (sorry not sorry), but I love that! Anyway, this story is not your typical steamy romance. When I heard FLASHED was like a Beauty and the Beast retelling, I was so eager to read it! The romance between grumpy Patrick and Lena is great. I was hooked since the very beginning! I love the age-gap, the sexual tension, the Adobo obsession (can relate!), their backstories... ummm, everything? Yeah, I loved everything!

I found FLASHED to be different, compared to the first two books in the series, maybe because it was slower but also more emotional. The point is, I highly recommend the Happy Endings series!
Are you curious about the first book in this series? You can read my review here: STRIPPED. You can also read my review of HIRED!

If FLASHED sounds like something you would enjoy, be sure to add it to you TBR!
