I usually save a Nia book for those times I've bounced from book to book and can't seem to settle. What can I say .. her books just grab me.

So, what did I like about this one?
1 -- I don't remember much of the first book in this series and was hoping it wouldn't matter and it didn't. I was able to jump right in and enjoy this one without feeling lost.

2 -- Miri Acosta and her family. I enjoyed seeing them again, just like you do people you knew once upon a long time ... Miri had an i

Another enjoyable read from Nia Forrester. It was nice to catch up with the characters from The Seduction of Dylan Acosta, and I liked Miri's own story.

Miri is Mark Acosta's younger sister (from the first book). She has grown up in a Dominican-American family that is fairly conventional and strait-laced. But Miri is a modern girl who is into social media, and she wants to break out of the constrictions her family keeps around her. Mark loves her, but doesn't see her as a grown-up person, just as

I really enjoyed Miri's story. I could see where she had grown up since the last book, but she still has a way to go. I think Miri was so caught up in what she thought she should be doing as a young twenty-something, that she never took the time to really think about whether or not she enjoyed that life. She wanted to be a bad girl, but everything ain't for everybody, and that's okay. And she picked the two worst friends possible (hated both of them!). The book left me with the feeling that she' ...more

Another winner from Nia Forrester! I loved finding out more about Miri and getting lost in her story. :) The description of her journey into womanhood and love...wonderful!

The Education of Miri Acosta takes the reader on Miri's journey into womanhood and love. Miri comes from a loving but overprotective Dominican-American family and she wants to have her taste of independence. As much as she loves her family, she also knows that none of them take her very seriously and this frustrates her. It d

just ok, but better than so many others

Honestly, I am a die hard Nia Forrester fan. Even her works that fall a little flat give me life. I discovered her when I could find NOTHING that matched my ideal modern urban heroine. She continuously feeds that interest for me. I've yet to read a novel by Forrester that I'm not thinking about the characters for days even weeks after. I'm certain that will be the case with this book as well.
A few years back, I probably would have found Miri very interest

As always Nia delivers the goods! I liked that the relationship between Miri and Duardo. It was a steady development and not rushed. Storylines always seem more genuine when the mains start off as friends and build from there. I was happy when they finally came together though. It was almost fate. The only missing piece was that they never sad I Love You to each other. Yes it was implied and could be felt, but as the reader I wanted to see it on the page. Kudos on another great read!

Becoming a woman

I enjoyed this story. It was interesting reading of the conflicts that arise growing up in a close knit family as the youngest sibling and only girl. And also being an adult virgin. It was funny how she tried so many ways to become a woman when all she had to do was walk in her truth.

This can't be it!!!!

Just like all the other series I was hooked at book one. Miriam's story surpassed my expectations. So please don't let this be the end. Patiently waiting for Matt's story. #alwaysafan

The Series

Have to ask - will there be more of this Series? Always looking for more and can see the author quenching my appetite!

Miri and Eduardo

I was happy that Miri got her own story and Duardo was a perfect companion for her. It was great catching up with Mark and Dylan as well.

Wasn't as in depth or exciting as the others

Highly recommended!
Not her best...

I have really enjoyed Nia's stories. They often draw you in and make you so invested in the characters that you wish it wouldn't end. But lately there has been a couple of them that I have had to skim or simply pass on. This story was one I should have done the latter, but instead did the former. I loved, absolutely loved Dylan and Mark's story. I thought Dylan was stupid at times, but I got it and it was a well told story.

This one with Miri was not up to those standards. Honestl

Miri Acosta isn't the only one to gain an education during this story. As always Nia Forrester engages her readers by opening windows that provide opportunities to see, hear and feel life and love from other perspectives quite thoroughly. The author's voice is elegant while building the relationship between Miri and Duardo and the love scenes are perfect.
There are enlightening peeks into the highs and lows of the Dominican culture and Major League Baseball in the United States. This is a coming

Miri Acosta is the grown-up little sister of Mark Acosta. Miri has now finished college and begun to live out her independent dreams. However, she was not prepared for the wrinkle that appeared in Eduardo, player friend of her brother. Eduardo was not prepared for the whirlwind of Miri. They became friends while flirting all at the same time. Miri was very innocent in some areas that Eduardo was not. Upon finding out that Miri was trying to experience life, in all the way of her friends, Eduardo ...more

It wasn't bad, but it wasn't good

I wouldn't call myself a diehard Nia Forrester fan, but I have yet to read a book of hers that I didn't enjoy. I'm not saying that this book ended that streak, but it came close. I thought that the prequel to this book - The Seduction of Dylan Acosta - was so...surprisingly insightful that I expected more from Miri's story. The previous book had a depth that I didn't expect, so I was kind of let down when this one didn't have that. The story wasn't bad. It just f

APB Perspective Review :

Miri and Duardo

I found myself rooting for Miri and Durado from the first time they met , as I read their journey I felt myself anxious for something to happen between them . As I got to know Eduardo and I met some of the women he had relationships with , Nadine caught my attention, so much that I felt I would have stopped reading this book, to learn more about her . I felt this is a well written coming of age story about Miri , about her becoming the woman she is meant t

It's been a couple of years that I read The Seduction of Dylan Acosta and loved it; so imagine my joy in getting a chance to revisit the Acostas. I am pleased to say I was not disappointed. It was nice to see Miri evolve into a beautiful young woman.

I love Eduardo Cruz and the way his character was built up from his humble beginnings to being a major league baseball player; all the while maintaining his humility. I really love this story and hope to see Matt's story soon.

Great Follow to Book One...

It has felt like forever since I've had the opportunity to interact with the Acostas, but it was worth the wait. I love me some Dylan and Mark, but Miri and Duardo are running a very close second. Excellent Character Chemistry as always from Nia Forrester. Amazing writing from a very talented writer. I can't wait to read the next story in this series. It's time for Matt to bite the love bug, lol.

Enjoyable read

This was a really great book, I was glad to be able to dive into Miri's story and was glad that she was not as annoying and naive as Dylan. I was however disappointed that it took almost the entire book for the main characters to really cum together (pun intended) but other than that I was very satisfied with this book.

The sweetest love story

I really loved loved this book and the way Miri and Eduardo got together. From friends to lovers with a few misunderstandings and entanglements in between. I can't want for another book in this series.

Loved this one too!

Awesome follow-up story for the Acosta family. I can't wait to read Matt's story (I hope he is getting one too).

I live in Washington D.C. Philadelphia, PA where by day I work on public policy and by night I read authors who move me, and craft woman-centered fiction. I like all genres and think nothing is too trivial to read, or to write about. Relationships are my greatest obsession; how they work, why they don't and what happens as they spin out of control, or come together perfectly. When I don't write, I ...more
