Hector was a really enjoyable read. I loved the romantic drama between Hector and Charlotte. I could really feel the emotion between these two even with their insecurities and confusion about the feelings that was growing between them. I enjoyed reading as their relationship unfolded as well as their life.
What I really enjoyed most was Hector and Charlotte strong connection with their intelligence and their bonding over chess, even though they came from two different backgrounds. Usually its some other sport like football or baseball but I loved that it was a intellectual game. Nothing sexier than a smart bad boy! The duality of Charlotte’s and Hectors lives and the dual point of views with which the story is told gave me a chance to see of their world through their eyes making the story so much more interesting.
