Angelika by David Bennett Laing
This was such a delightful story with many interesting emotional layers and brilliant writing. It is about Asher, an almost 40-year-old teacher and his student, Angelika, an 18-year-old, beautiful, smart, from Germany. She is gorgeous and he finds her attractive. She is the one to make a first step, first kiss and first talking about her feelings towards him. He is aware though that the relationship between a teacher and a student isn't allowed. And that he is much older than her. She doesn’t see this obstacle, as her heart wants him. Should the main characters take into consideration the age difference as an impediment or they should rather look at it only to understand where the generational differences are coming from? They were born in different decades, therefore their attitude, prejudices and overall concept of love and sexual relationship are different. It was because of love that they had to find ways to deal with the barriers because love doesn't judge. Love listens, understands and accepts.
Type of reader: Lovers of the contemporary romance genre searching for well-written novels and who could maybe fancy an age-difference relationship. I truly recommend.
My favorite quotes from this book:
“Despite her delightful nakedness, she seemed the very picture of practicality, he thought, which actually added to her charm—a certain je ne sais quoi…”
““Look at me, Angelika.” he said. “What do you see?” She did. “I see my one and only love,” she said, simply.”
My rating: 5/5.
