Publisher's Summary

It used to be that I obsessed over Ares Hidalgo from afar.

But that was before he climbed through my window.

Raquel Álvarez is hardworking and serious about her future. It’s always just been her and her mom, and that’s kept Raquel on the straight and narrow. After all, she’s only got one goal - to become a psychologist. Well, that and to get Ares Hildago to notice her.

For as long as Raquel can remember, she has been obsessed with Ares - known to everyone as the rich, hot, popular playboy. Even though he lives next door, Raquel has never spoken to Ares. Yet, she can’t help thinking there’s more to him...and she can’t help imagining what it’d feel like to kiss him.

After a chance encounter reveals her crush is anything but unrequited, their steamy attraction grows into what can only be described as hands-down hot. They fall hard and fast for one another.

Raquel is all in with Ares. But Ares can’t, or won’t, commit, as his struggle with personal and family responsibilities leaves little room for falling in love. The will-they-won’t-they tension is killing her, and it may just kill what they have.

What burns bright burns fast, but for Ares and Raquel, can it last?

very graphic

the story is basically a tale about sex crazed high schoolers. I feel it is too graphic for many. it did not hold my attention. the performers did a very good job.

Hated it. Dumb. Lame.

Is there a reason the author made these characters so young? It was a ridiculous story. I don’t think the choices the author made were very good. I have never met a 15 year old boy who could get into a club. And it’s amusing that the main character goes from basically knowing zero about sex to being an expert.

It’s lame. Really lame.

Immature

I’m sorry, I can’t. Chapter 3 and I have to delete it. This must be for young teens, it’s content is already annoying and lacking in reality.

Story on the immature & amateurish side

The performer was especially annoying and didn’t seem to fit the tone. Hated her “male” voice and it detracted heavily from the performance.

Yuck

Such an unhealthy relationship! I’m not sure who this book is written for, but adults will find the characters immature and stupid, and teens should not be listening to this for an “aspirational” romantic relationship. Also the narrator really overdid it.

Great teen story

It was a good story and the narration was great. It kept my interest even the one a lot older than 18. I would’ve liked to had it really a nicer ending it with them being engaged or whatever but you know that’s neither here nor there. It was a good story overall.

book surpasses the movie

I'm sure the novel and it's original it's original written language made a little bit more sense than the translated to English version. Mostly, it is a Easy book to listen to. I love Ramona's Ramona's skill with narration. The author does a wonderful job of describing the characters you can really picture the scenes. The ending is a bit abrupt. I was wanting more.

Thought it would be better

I though this book would be better as it was made into a Netflix movie. I didn’t like how Aries treated Raquel (sp may be wrong as I listened to this). Also, the end sucks. UNC has a medical school. It is currently ranked #25 in the country for research and #5 for Primary Care, and that is compared to the Ivy’s. I didn’t go there. It was an easy Google Search. I feel like the author could have done. Honestly, you can go almost anywhere for premed. Then, go to an Ivy once you get your undergrad.

The lady reading was great. The guy sounded a bit robotic. I wanted to slow his down, but I would have had to switch back and forth.

5 Virgin Abs Stars

5 stars ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Let me start by saying that the movie on Netflix doesn’t even come close to being as good as the book!!

But isn’t that usually the case for most books that are made into movies?
I can’t put my finger on it but the movie Through My Window was different in ways I can’t explain and not in a good way, but obviously it had something otherwise I wouldn’t have finished it.
I’m not sure if the reason being was because it was directed in a foreign country, but something was off.

When I stumbled across the movie on Netflix there was two things…

1. It caught my interest
2. I had no clue it was an novel.

The problem I had with the movie was, it was like they took bits of pieces from the book and just patched the scenes together but not fully explaining them. If that makes sense?

So many important parts in the book, were missing in the movie. So it made it impossible to follow. There were several times throughout the movie where I was completely confused not knowing what was going on?

After I finished the movie, I decided to read the book to see if that was just as bad.
I have to say I was very relieved that the book wasn’t awful but in fact it filled in the unknowns.

What I did notice a lot of was how there were several difference from the movie from the book..

1. Characters we’re different in the movie ~ I preferred characters as is in the book better.
2. The Storyline was different in so many ways in the movie ~ once again the book was so much better. I’m not really sure why screenwriter/Directors make so many changes when they make the movie. Can’t they just do the movie how the book is written?? Obviously if you’re making a movie out of a book it’s because it was a hit!! So why frickin change it??
3. The lack of information/details in the movie ~ This was huge in my opinion because the Book gives all the Intel where the movie did not.
4. The chemistry between Aries and Raquel ~ both book and movie were off the charts HOT🔥🔥!

In my opinion I feel the monologue was a huge problem in the movie…
for an example.. in the movie Aries comes across as being A grade douche all the time, but in fact in the book he wasn’t that bad, don’t get me wrong, he can be a douche at times, but the book shows you a different side of him that’s not shown in the movie. Also in the movie Raquel seems like a doormat that never sticks up for herself, but in fact in the book she is strong willed and does speak up.

Many book reviews write on how Raquel was weak and had no self respect, but I didn’t see it that way. Was she weak at times? Yes, but not in the way you think.. I think people forgot on how they acted when they were 18?
I personal think the author did a wonderful job showing her readers that these are two teen age kids working through their hormones. Trying to find themselves..

I see a Girl and Boy experiencing LOVE for the first time!
Raquel see something in Aries that no one else can see, but has to work through all his layers to find out that he does in fact have a kind heart.

Aries thinks being cold and heartless will allow him to stay in control of his feelings, because Love terrified him until Raquel shows him otherwise.

So Raquel constantly forgiving Aries wasn’t a weakness it was a strength!

This story is emotionally Beautiful! I highly recommend reading the book before watching the movie. In fact I recommend not even watching the movie.

Just sayin..

Audiobook:
Ramona Master was fabulous! I absolutely love listening to her and she did a great job narrating. I can’t say the same for Timothy Andres Pabon. I’ve never listen to him before nor do I think I will in the future. He had no emotion in his voice and sounded like a robot. I actually stop listening to his parts and read his chapters on my own. Personally I think Romona should’ve done the male POV too, her guy voice was much better!
