A Lot Like Adiós by Alexis Daria
Friends to lovers and the fake dating trope? Sign me up! I loved You Had Me at Hola, so I couldn’t wait to get Michelle’s story in A Lot Like Adiós, and this series by Alexis Daria is definitely going to be one of my favorites.
I truly enjoyed both Michelle and Gabe’s characters and I couldn’t wait to see where their journey of working together, while living together, would take them. Their relationship felt so natural and as much as I didn’t want the book to end because I enjoyed it so much, I also could not wait to get to the end to see what would happen between the two of them. I loved the family aspect as well with Jasmine and Ava always being there for Michelle, no questions asked, and Gabe reconnecting with his family after years of being apart and not speaking.
One of the things I loved in You Had Me at Hola was how Daria used the TV show’s script to break up the story, but also give the reader a glimpse of what was to come, and I love the way she did it in A Lot Like Adiós with the high school conversations about the fan-fiction that Michelle and Gabe were writing. Now I can’t wait for Ava’s story!
Thank you to Avon for an advance digital copy in exchange for an honest review.
