If you haven't yet read all her others--get on it! For me Kulti will forever take the cake. And there may or may not be some overlapping characters in this one....
This release was one of the best early Christmas presents this year. It took me totally by surprise and turned my day yesterday into a happy one.
Knowing the authors books, she delivered exactly what I had hoped for.
A slow burn romance, packed into 600+ pages (it’s a guess;-). I had a smile on my face the ENTIRE time.
The book was packed with everything I adore. Cute kids, strong and snarky heroine, a grumpy hot neighbor and wonderful supporting characters. The slow burn and fantastic character building added to the overall enjoyment of this book.
Diana Casillas and her two nephews, which were entertaining and cute as buttons, moved into a new neighborhood and soon after met her hot, but grumpy neighbor across the street (not the one that was beaten up;-).
Dallas Walker, a bit mysterious, a body like a greek god, neighborhood grump, and kids baseball coach, kept his distance at the beginning. He was going though a divorce and didn’t need any other complications, especially in the form of one crazy neighbor with two kids.
But sooner or later Diana and Dallas were thrown together on more than one occasion. It didn’t help that Diana was friends with her boss which was one of Dallas’s cousins. On top of that Dallas scouted successfully her nephew for his U11 baseball team. They also frequently visited the same neighborhood bar. All of these situations allowed Diana and Dallas to bond naturally, and build a lasting friendship. One build on loyalty, acceptance, honesty, and supportiveness.
The big elephant in the room was the mutual attraction that nobody dared to acknowledge. It simmered, built, and developed into something deeper than either expected.
Mariana Zapata has a unique talent to write stories that are dedicated solely to the getting to know, becoming friends and THEN falling in love. NO insta-crush, or insta-love. Which is so refreshing!!!! That’s what makes her writing so remarkable.
Reading one of her books makes me HAPPY. I smiled the entire day yesterday. I think it took me most of the day to finish Wait for It. That meant I was smiling for 12 hours.:-)
Wait for It was such a feel-good book. It was about second chances. A patch-work family. Kids that were just adorable. A heroine that was down-to-earth, real, relatable and lovable.
Diana’s daily interactions with the kids were so on point. I could see myself shouting, and waiting at the door. Making sure everyone had their stuff. Looking for a lost shoe.:-) And OMG the lice situation, I could so relate.
Diana was such an amazing character. She really just wanted to be friends with Dallas. Loved how she tried to curb her attraction and keep their friendship platonic even so her feelings changed.
And Dallas was such a great guy. His interactions with the kids and Diana were utterly swoon-worthy. He was her rock! The guy that she could lean on.
That’s how fairy-tales are made. Not with a billionaire, prince, or rock-star. Dallas was the REAL deal.
Mariana Zapata’s books will always be part of my favorite shelf. Her books are something to look forward to. To enjoy without interruptions. To savor every word. Her sheer talent leaves me in awe.
I’m pretty sure I’ll reread Wait for It again, when that happens I will upgrade the rating to 5 stars. It wasn’t as perfect as The Wall of Winnipeg, but pretty close.:-)
I guess I look for a little more of an escape, when I'm reading. This novel is so real, the first sexual encounter (finally, at 86% of the book) is kind of a bust. I admire the author for sticking to her honesty plan, but, I have a lot of real life in my own real life. It would be fun, for example, since Buttercup is going to date older, and leapfrog her thirties into middle age with him, if the guy inherited a treasure chest buried under Nana Pearl's house, or opened Pearl's safety deposit box to find it filled with Apple Computer stock certificates. Because what does Buttercup get for rescuing Nana Pearl (and her cat! Buttercup!!!) from the house fire, for the month-plus of rehab on her burned hand? Donut, and a mailbox full of bills. For the two additional years on the planet, courtesy of Buttercup, Pearl might have lent a bigoted hand to reduce Buttercup's financial pinch, her necessary overtime and lost weekends, catching up with clients. Bugs me. Four stars for Buttercup not wanting, asking for or achieving more for herself and her boys.
