A Lot Like Adiós
A Lot Like Adiós: A Novel | Alexis Daria
10 posts | 10 read | 1 reading | 2 to read
The national bestselling author of You Had Me at Hola returns with a seductive second-chance romance about a commitment-phobic Latina and her childhood best friend who has finally returned home. Hi Mich. It's Gabe. After burning out in her corporate marketing career, Michelle Amato has built a thriving freelance business as a graphic designer. So what if her love life is nonexistent? She's perfectly fine being the black sheep of her marriage-obsessed Puerto Rican-Italian family. Besides, the only guy who ever made her want happily-ever-after disappeared thirteen years ago. It's been a long time. Gabriel Aguilar left the Bronx at eighteen to escape his parents' demanding expectations, but it also meant saying goodbye to Michelle, his best friend and longtime crush. Now, he's the successful co-owner of LA's hottest celebrity gym, with an investor who insists on opening a New York City location. It's the last place in the world Gabe wants to go, but when Michelle is unexpectedly brought on board to spearhead the new branding campaign, everything Gabe's been running from catches up with him. I've missed you. Michelle is torn between holding Gabe at arm's length or picking up right where they left off--in her bed. As old feelings resurface while they work to make the new gym location a reality, their reunion takes a sexy turn. Facing mounting pressure from their families--who think they're dating--and growing uncertainty about their futures, can they resolve their past mistakes, or is it only a matter of time before Gabe says adios again?

Another great book in this series. Childhood friends, Michelle and Gabe are both feeling stuck in their lives. When they re-enter each other's worlds, they're both forced to really look at their lives and what they really want.

Predictable, unbelievable, the writing fell somewhat flat for me.

Another lovable romance from Alexis Daria following former friends who find the flame is still very much alive when they're reunited for work. A bit steamier than I remember You Had Me at Hola being, but still so feisty and fun without too, too much drama. And both of the leads are bi! We love to see it.

This was a delightful, steamy rom-com. A second chance romance with a lot of fun family and friends as well. This is the 2nd in a series of standalones. You do not need to read book 1 to read this one. I think this is actually the better of the two. 4.5⭐️
Also this completes another #bookspinbingo

My friend gave me her ARC to read and WOW. I enjoyed You Had Me at Hola, but I loved this one. Friends to lovers AND pretend dating tropes. This was so much fun.
