Theres something I want to tell you first before going into my review of this story: For the most part, I run away fast and furiously from any book that involves New Adults because they make me twitchy! That being said, here are my thoughts on this book

Valentina Ferraro captured the essence of these very young kids incredibly well. The drama, ridiculous decisions and push/pull ran rampant thru this entire story and if Im being honest, I had to take a lot of deep breaths while I read this LOL

I love this story. I was so captivated! These characters own a piece of my heart. Ben and Cat are great! Mark kept me laughing so hard. My emotions were everywhere. I am so glad I took a chance to read this book by a new to me author. I enjoyed reading this book and look forward to reading more in the future! I HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS BOOK!

This book was first published in Italian in 2016 and is this authors first novel to be translated in English. So congrats to her for that!!

This story definitely has a lot going on. Sexy neighbors who play in a band, college-aged kids making poor decisions, parties, DRAMA, cheating, and some steamy scenes that make your toes curl.

Caterina travels to Orlando, Florida from Italy to attend college. She moves in with a couple of gals who live next door to two brothers, Mark & Ben. Mark is super

Choose Me AMAZING!
Youre mine or youre his. I dont share.

This is the first book of the Matching Scar series, there are 3 main books and various spin-offs. Ive already read all of them in italian and they are like a drug for me, because these books are addictive! The story tells about a young italian girl Caterina, who decided to study a whole year in Florida and moved there from Rome, living with her roommates Jess and Erika and her neighbors, Carter brothers, Mark and Ben. A beautiful

New to me, Author: Valentina Ferraro did a great job with this story. It had my heart totally invested and I was a total goner when it came to Ben. What can I say, Im a sucker for the broody, sexy, musician types. And well...he definitely fits the bill. The story is one that will suck you in and I enjoyed it. Definitely worth checking this read out!

I received an ARC from the author Valentina Ferraro, for an honest review.
I read Choose me in Italian last year, for the first time. Ive loved it, since then. Cat and Ben are two explosive characters, and they are a real ticking bomb. During the time they will spend together, we know that they are two different people, who come from two different worlds: shes from Rome, well-off, at times snooty, sure she knows what her path is, while hes American, a free spirit and a dreamer. Nothing more

Note: An ARC was provided by the author.

A quick note: This book does contain cheating, so if this happens to be a hard limit for any readers, consider this your heads-up. There's quite a bit that goes on in this series starter, and while it does have a happy-for-now ending, there is an epilogue that makes it clear that something has gone amiss between those two sections. Most of the characters in this story are college-aged kids, so they don't necessarily make the wisest of choices at times,

Choose me is not only a love story, its the story of strong friendships and soul connections. The characters are all well built and you immediately get in touch with them. Within few pages you will find yourself in the kitchen sitting on the stool next to Cat, dancing and jumping at the club with the girls, drooling over Ben, laughing at Marks silliness or crying and getting really angry when things go down.
Cat is an Italian girl who decides to move to Florida to live the dream of her death

This is the first book I read from Valentina Ferraro and I really liked it, I was glued to it from the first pages. Ben and Cat are very well defined characters and, even though they are very different, I really liked the way they become closer and closer, from neighbours to lovers. Caterina Zanetti, arriving from Rome to Orlando, to attend there a year of University, would have never imagined she will find great friends, among which the Carter brothers, her neighbours. Benjamin, in particular, ...more

4 Stars!!


As soon as I finished the synopsis I couldn't wait to read this book! I couldn't turn away from my kindle once I started it and I stayed up all night reading until I reached the end. I really enjoyed it!


Cat and Ben's journey isn't easy and that's one of the things that pulled me into their story even more. From the frustrating moments to the blushworthy ones and everything in between, I felt every single bit of it. With each chapter I couldn't wait to find out what was going to happen

I love this book. Ben and Cat keep you on the edge of your seat...will they.... won't they? Will Cat, who's spending a year at college in Florida, return to her old life, old boyfriend in Rome or will she finally give into Ben's demand to choose him and no one else.
Both fiery and stubborn, Caterina, the spoiled little rich girl from Rome and Ben, honors student and musician, are perfect for each other...they just have to admit it!
Great supporting cast. Mark, adds comic relief, while Cat's two
