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.

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. . . 🥱

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.

Just as good as You Had Me at Hola!

New and previous characters but is not a sequel, tantalizing latinx story with all the same feelings as before, and a sizzling romance with passion. Alexis Daria has done it again! 10/10

just didn't give

struggled to finish. every "obstacle" was so minimal yet made into a huge deal. I loved the connections to my own culture but it wasn't enough to love these characters. also feel like they added the whole bisexuality aspect just to seem inclusive but it was random and didn't seem real.

Good, but…

Ugh, just like annoyed by Gabe. Felt like it was repetitive and underdeveloped. Skipped over the fan fiction bits. It was meh. The Narrator made it worth it at least

Thoroughly enjoyable

Such a delightful story and now I want to reread jasmine’s story. I assume Ava will be next. The primas. It will be an insta-buy.

Nice story, but a bit boring

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