Wait for It

By Mariana Zapata
Wait for It by Mariana Zapata digital book - Fable

Publisher Description

If anyone ever said being an adult was easy, they hadn't been one long enough. Diana Casillas can admit it: she doesn't know what the hell she's doing half the time. How she's made it through the last two years of her life without killing anyone is nothing short of a miracle. Being a grown-up wasn't supposed to be so hard. With a new house, two little boys she inherited the most painful possible way, a giant dog, a job she usually loves, more than enough family, and friends, she has almost everything she could ever ask for. Except for a boyfriend. Or a husband. But who needs either one of those?

Beaming Face with Smiling Eyes“Mariana Zapata never disappoints if you're looking for a slow-burn romance with opposite characters. In "Wait For It," she tells the story of Diana Casillas, a young aunt raising her two nephews after the death of her brother and sister-in-law. Moving into a new neighborhood, Diana meets her neighbor when she rescues his brother from a beating, intertwining their lives with family, friends, and little league games. If you're familiar with Zapata's books, Diana is the best friend of Vanny from "The Wall of Winnipeg and Me." Zapata's hallmark diversity shines through with a relatable Latina protagonist. While her writing style is known, this book felt overly long, akin to a K-drama that could have been shorter. The main characters detailed development, their individual personalities, and their relationship growth, along with the themes of death and grieving, are well-handled. Despite the grumpy hero, the dynamic avoids toxicity, making it easy to fall in love with both characters.”

Smiling Face with Heart-Eyes“This was such a beautiful story of love. All kinds of love; romantic, familiar, neighborly, even self love. This of course was an extremely slow burn(the authors specialty) story between the to mc's. I don't think they even positively interacted until after the 50% mark. But, I was so sucked into the story of the mfc and her kids she has guardianship of that the story kept my romanceaholic satisfied. The relationship between the kids and the adults in this story was sweet and seemed realistic. The epilogue was so good. I love seeing the characters years later I'm the hea.”
