If you are an author, booktuber or blogger, let me know and I'll feature your review of It Began in Brooklyn.

"Flor has written a fun, on-trend, and meaningful contribution to the romantic genre. Taking a cue from the #MeToo movement, the author uses her platform to shout out against the disparity in how women are still treated in entertainment compared to their male counterparts. .The author writes it in such a way that it feels like a natural part of the story and gives it that extra bit of realism, rather than throwing it in for the shock value."

"Este libro fue más de lo que esperaba. La historia realmente se quedó en mí cuando me sorprendió con su tono #girlpower. Las cosas no son fáciles para las mujeres y es sumamente necesario que esto se remarque en las historias de amor, por más soñadas que parezcan.
Los personajes están muy bien construidos y es realmente difícil no empatizar con cada uno de ellos, ya que Flor los muestra muy humanos, con problemas terrenales y fuera de la alfombra roja."

"Desde que comencé a leer, no pude parar. Además del romance y los momentos dulces, me encantó que encare el tema del feminismo y la lucha por la igualdad de género. Moderno y entretenido de leer."

"Me encantó la forma en la que el mundo audiovisual y de Hollywood están descriptos. Los personajes están tan bien diseñados que hace que el lector se meta en las profundidades del mundo de Brooklyn, con la cantidad perfecta de drama y ternura. Lo recomiendo firmemente!"

"Un increíble libro en el que el romance está mezclado con el mundo de Hollywood resultando en una historia atrapante con un ritmo rápido. Los detalles sobre la producción de TV y la perfección de los diálogos fueron mis partes favoritas."
