Publisher's Summary

"Alexis Daria's A Lot Like Adiós is a charming, sexy spitfire of a novel! Between Mich and Gabe's crackling dialogue and their palpable yearning, I fell hard and fast for this book, racing through its pages until I finally closed it with an overflowing heart and a deep happy sigh. Romance readers, this is your new favorite book!" (Emily Henry, number one New York Times best-selling author of People We Meet on Vacation)

The national best-selling 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 13 years ago.

It’s been a long time.

Gabriel Aguilar left the Bronx at 18 to escape his parents’ demanding expectations, but it also meant saying good-bye 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 Gabe wants to go, but when Michelle is unexpectedly brought on board to spearhead the new marketing 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 they work on the campaign, old feelings resurface, and 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 adiós again?

Absolutely loved it.

I laughed, I cried, I was inspired, and damn, was it sexy! Alexis Daria's characters are authentic and multidimensional. The details she includes about Latinx New York -- its people, food, culture, music -- really bring you into the world of Gabe and Michelle. And the fanfic writing flashbacks as told via Windows Messenger were such a poignant inclusion! I recommend this book to anyone looking to fall in love with two beautiful (no really, they're hot AF) and complicated characters and the colorful world around them.

Whiny and full of idiots

Another story of people who have a simple problem and make an emotional mountain of it like a child. Then never grow up emotionally and seek acceptance because they think it makes them special... The Latino and SciFi fan fiction flash backs theme was the only interesting and well written part. All the emotional and real plot were a sad excuse of someone writing past their ability.

Eh. I was bored . . .

Yeah so this book was just eh. I didn’t really feel any connection to the characters. They were very emotionally immature and tried to create these big problems out of very minor issues. The romance was just blah and the family members were annoying. The sex scenes were okay but again everything just felt very shallow and the I didn’t see any deep connection. There was no complexity to the characters and neither of the mains were very likable. I listened to the second half of this on like 3x-3.5x speed just to get through it. I wish I could have liked it more but all I felt was bleh. . . 🥱

Good, but ending was sudden

I enjoyed the book. But, the ending was very blunt. It seemed like there should’ve been more.

Adorable, sexy, hilarious, and very relatable (at least for a millennial who wrote a fanfic as a teen)

I absolutely adored the way the narration explores the relationship of these estranged childhood friends turned lovers. While I totally get why this book might not be what some expect, as someone who wrote fan rica as a teen and also didn’t know how to express my feelings directly as a high school kid, this story was very relatable. At first the inclusion of their old chat room from when they had been teens seems unnecessary, soon the “flashbacks” start to line up with the story, revealing how the two had been flirting with each other subtly and how close their friendship had been throughout high school. While the authenticity might feel fake to someone who was never a part of a fan fiction community, I think this is one the best modern romances I’ve read in a long time. Also it had me cackling in laughter quite a few times.
Seeing how both characters reveal and process their trauma through this book and as they are more vulnerable with each other is beautiful.
And for those that read the previous book in this series I was pretty blown away by how different this book’s vibe was despite being another latinx romance in the same setting.

Nice story, but a bit boring

The idea is nice and the performance was great, but it just a bit boring
