What's a woman to do when she's fiercely independent, and love comes knocking without warning? I think this pretty much sums up our main character, Agnes Escueta's, predicament in this brand new offering from Filipino #romanceclass author Stella Torres.

It's been a while since I've read something of Stella's, and I was really excited for her when she gave me a sneak peek of her new cover last AprilFeelsDay. It felt like a step up from the sweet vibe of Save the Cake, her first book, and the plot also seemed something fast-paced and exciting, too.

Crushingly Close is about Agnes Escueta, a producer for a sports news show, and her hard work had given her a reputation of being a no-nonsense woman that no one could

I received an ARC of this book in exchange for a review (then went ahead and bought the book when it came out!).

Stella Torres' Save the Cake was the first Filipino-authored romance that I read, and when I heard that Crushingly Close came out, I immediately grabbed it and never let go. :)

I love Agnes as a character. I always relate to characters who really put their lives on hold to take care of their family, and her relationship with her parents and brother was something I liked about her. But

I love the approach the story it was captivating and flirty. Damn, Daniel what I love about him is he's direct in expressing his feelings towards Agnes. Definitely, He's sweet, caring and his witty nature is sexy.

I love about Agnes being driven and passionate towards her work. Her love and devotion to her family is priceless.

I love the glimpse of the world behind sports new it felt like I'm also with them living and capturing moments with them.

In totality, I love it!
