Quando planejava quem começaria o meu ano de 2018, de forma alguma eu pensei que poderia ser A. C. Meyer. Primeiramente por Cadu & Mari estar à tempos no meu Kindle - geralmente só me lembro dos livros que está nele quando estou navegando no menu. E, em segundo lugar, eu nunca havia lido nada da autora - e geralmente sempre escolho um escritor favorito para abrir a contagem de forma positiva. Então, ler Cadu & Mari foi uma espécie de acidente de percurso. Mas ele era o livro certo no

This was a good book. Nothing big in the story. There is a lot of cultural references so most of the time I had no idea where they where when things were going on, but that happens sometimes. This book was written in another language (Portagul) so the translation was done. I think it was pretty good but maybe missed something in the transition.

The characters were likable, but needy in some places. It could just be me. But all together not a bad read.

Falling for Her is a cute office romance. It takes place in Brazil, which for me, is a unique setting, and I really enjoyed that. The characters were interesting, and the story was different. I really enjoyed Mariana, and the chemistry between her and Carlos was fabulous.

I did have some trouble with the writing. It felt very stiff, and jumpy. It became hard to follow as I was continuously pulled out of the story because of the awkward translation from the original Portuguese. I really wanted to

Like every A.C. Meyer book, reading Falling for Her flowed in a way, with each page a different sigh. The author knew how to work very well all the chapters, with the point of view alternate between the characters. But let's talk about my impressions of the plot and narrative.

The book is in the first person (which I like a lot) and tells the story of these two people so different and so similar at the same time. On the one hand we have Mariana, secretary, coming from a humble family who lives in

When I discovered that Falling For Her was a romance settled in an office, the only thing I thought of was that I should read, and so I had the opportunity to know the characters who became my best friends, for whom I cheered vibrated, and fell in love.

For years Cadu and Mari have worked together. She's his secretary, a very professional one. Cadu is the CEO of a fashion magazine company. But trust me when I say that it is not a romance like the others, as A. C. Meyer's exquisite writing makes i

Cadu and Mari - an emotional office romance

FALLING FOR HER was a thoroughly enjoyable story about an office romance, one that was very unexpected by both Mariana "Mari" Costa and Carlos Eduardo "Cadu". Mari has jad a crush on Cadu for three years, the entire time she's been working for him, but he has only just begun to notice her recently, and when it happened the attraction and chemistry is instantaneous and scorching.

Told from dual POVs, Mari and Cadu's story is an emotional rollercoaster

I am not sure where all these 5 and 4 star reviews came from, maybe it was from the original story that was written in Portuguese. But who ever translated the book into English should not use google translate. It was bad. so 2 stars for the book cause the story line was interesting. But the whole book as a whole was very hard to follow along. Most of the time the verbiage used is that of a tween girl and not that of someone who was a CEO of a Top magazine company. Not to mention do we need detai ...more

Pensa num cara babaca. Pensou? O Cadu é umas vinte vezes mais babaca. Primeiro porque ele é um banana. O irmão dele só sugere que a Mari pode estar atrás do dinheiro dele e ele já fica cheio de dúvidas. Ele se pergunta se ela está agindo por interesse, mas foi ele que foi atrás dela para começo de conversa.

Fora que fica todo cheio de ciúmes, mas quem decidiu que não queria mais foi ele. Ou seja, o cara age egoisticamente praticamente 100% do tempo. A única coisa que salva é que a Mari não deixa

A sweet, funny, sometimes heart-rending story

I love the opportunity to read stories set in unusual places so the Rio de Janeiro setting was a plus for me. Add in an office romance romance (one of my favorite tropes) and the blurb had me sold.

I loved Mari and Cadu together, though they both had trust issues to work through that made me want to smack them a bit at times (especially Cadu!). My heart was breaking for both of them at different times and I was really pulling for them to get their act

I really enjoyed Falling for her it would be the first book I've read by A.C. Meyer and it wont be my last with how the story and characters drew me in the only complaint I really have is the texts were hard to read but other then that amazing story that kept me on my toes all throughout the story . I loved the relationship between Mari and Cadu they have worked well together for years until one moment changes things .

I really enjoyed this story by A.C. Meyer. From what I can see this may be the first English translated book of hers and I found it to be well done with the story from both the perspective of Mari and Cadu.

These two have worked together (or Mari worked for Cadu) for years and have always known each other is Mariana and Carlos Eduardo. Very professional and circumspect relationship. When Cadu suddenly sees her in a different light, his life changes and in return so does Mari's. However nothing i

Falling for Her was a story that I enjoyed quite a bit, especially since it was set in culture than any other romance book that I've read, so that gave it originality. Mari is the assistant to Cadu, at a fashion magazine. They have worked together for years, until fate steps in and changes their relationship to something more. But not everyone is happy about them being together, and major plotting is afoot, so will Mari & Cadu be strong enough to withstand the storm? I really loved Mari & her bi ...more

Falling for Her is a great office romance, this one between boss and employee, A.C. Meyer did an amazing job with this book. This story will make fall in love, get angry, and happy; it got me hooked from page one to the end of the storyline.

It is told in a two-part POV between CEO, Carlos Eduardo Moraes aka "Cadu" and Mariana Mari Costa. I thought it was hilarious how Cadu notices his feelings for Mari, while Mari has always had the biggest crush on him from the first day she meets Cadu. I love

This is the story of Cadu and Mari. Mari has had a crush on her boss, Carlos, ever since she started working for him three years ago. She has worked hard to keep her work life professional, though, and hasn’t let it show. Then Carlos, or Cadu as he is known to his friends, runs into her out at a club. He is captivated, and once he sees his assistant a different light he can’t seem to stop thinking of her. Before he knows it, he is asking her to be his girlfriend, something that he never does.

This is the first time I have read any of this authors’ work, and I will certainly be reading more in the future. Mari loves her job and has secretly been in love with her boss Cadu forever. When they meet in a club, their work ethics are forgotten. This is a sweet and enjoyable read, which is emotional, sad, humorous, frustrating, suspenseful, and with a tad angst. This is well written and flows seamlessly, and I recommend this authors’ work for all readers.

This was such a romantic story. I swooned, I sighed, I oohed and ahhhed. AC wrote a beautifully told love story. Cuda and Mari work together, for a few years they have been only professional, one look and that all goes out the door. I loved reading this. We get a little bit of everything, family drama, rich man, poor girl, a man that knows what he wants, and a woman who has a backbone.

Falling For Her was an immensely sweet read with a few hills to climb. This story is almost too sweet. From the first realization of lust to the ending it made me feel like I was floating in happiness. Mari has the job she loves, a great best friend, and a boss she's secretly in love with. One small accident leads her down a road of a lot of happiness with a slight black cloud. Mari comes off as a super confident woman, yet she's got some insecurities and hang ups. Cadu comes across as a sinfull ...more

Quando eu soube que Cadu e Mari era um romance de escritório a única coisa que pensei é que eu deveria ler, e assim tive a oportunidade de conhecer personagens que se tornaram meu melhores amigos, por quem torci, vibrei e me apaixonei.

Por anos Cadu e Mari trabalham juntos. Ela é secretária dele, muito profissional. Cadu é o CEO da empresa de um revista de moda. Mas confie em mim quando digo que não é como os demais, pois a escrita requintada da A. C. Meyer o torna diferente e primoroso.

You know those kisses you see in movies? The ones that capture your attention completely when you see them? The type of kiss that makes your legs shake and leaves you breathless? Never mind those! This one was a million times better. Cadu showed me his sweet and seductive side last week, but this? He’s like a hurricane. I have never been kissed like this. Ever. He pulls me to him, grabs my hair and kisses me. I don’t even know if I can call it a kiss. It’s almost like he’s assaulting my

A.C. Meyer is a real book lover. Not satisfied with just read it, her restless mind decided to write her own happy endings. Mixing fun and romance, she reaches the romantic comedies´s tone that amazes her readers from beginning to end.
