AUTHOR: Mariana Zapata
GENRE: Contemporary Romance, Slowburn Romance
You didn’t know what love was until someone was willing to give up what they loved the most for you. But it was also never letting them make that choice, either.
SUMMARY FROM GOODREADS:
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?
Other people might think I’m overrating Mariana Zapata. But it looks like she and I have the same mental and emotional wavelength because I am really really hooked with her works. I’ve already read four books written by her and this is the third one that I fell in love with. Zapata basically made me love slow burn romances.
Wait For It is more of a slice of life story that focuses on grief, family, parenting and life lessons rather than a typical romance novel. There is no insta-love or insta-lust here. In fact, Dallas and Diana started off in the wrong foot. Then, through a series of events that is more of a typical daily life rather than dramatic, they became friends that eventually turned into something more. Their feelings for each other was not forced. They fell in love slowly, unexpectedly and completely.
“I’m not rich and I’m not good-looking, but I could make you happy.”
I don’t need a billionaire. I want a Dallas Walker in my life. He might not be as famous as Reiner Kulti or as rich as Aiden Graves But he’s loyal, honest, faithful, loving, tolerant and the perfect husband you will ever wish you have.
“If I can respect being in a relationship with someone who I won’t remember years from now, I wanted you to see how seriously I would take spending the next fifty years with the girl who’s keeping my heart for herself.”
“I love you, and every bone in my body tells me that I’m gonna love you every day of my life, even when we want to kill each other.”
Until now, I still don’t know my most favorite Mariana Zapata book (i love three!) but I know that if I am going to choose between the three heroes, I would gladly choose Dallas.
