About this deal

Him and the little group of side characters we get to know through the novel really made a difference.

Just the progression of letting someone into your life, slowly learning about them over time and getting close to them - the way MZ portrays that is one of my favorite things about her writing style. She was just so real and so admirable with the way she stood up for herself and how determined and such a relatable person she is. LISTENNN, never have I ever been a fan of the single dad trope in my life; he might have swayed me though!Dropping little teasers and breadcrumbs here and there without getting the full picture irks me, I'll admit. But I was going to be excited—at least as much as I could be—about this start and however it would end. I won't go into what they are here in detail as it might take away from the story for some readers, but they are drawn out (and sad).

Down to earth, loveable real characters, simplistic writing, the most incredible grumpy-sunshine story I have ever read. Trigger and content warnings include: grief and loss, death of a parent (off-page, past), estranged parent, discussions surrounding mental health and depression, minor injury and blood, mention of infertility (side-character). While I found her to be strong in other times (such as how she wanted to complete her mother's hikes and make her proud), or how I understood the grief she felt (especially towards the ending), I couldn't find myself sympathizing with her all the time. Rhodes was a DILF without him even having to ~tRy~ or be married first and conceive baby Amos conventionally. I wish that I could tell you that I hope you'll both find peace and happiness in your lives, but I'm not that good of a person.Always optimistic, Aurora works on charming her new, handsome landlord and while he doesn’t seem to be thawing to her, she has no plans on leaving the town.

While not everyone's cup of tea and not usually mine, this allowed to Aurora's character to not only develop, but shine and turn this book into something special for me that was both uplifting and entertaining. Thankfully, it took a different turn pretty quickly, and I guess I have to thank Zapata's writing and her characters for it. I was surprised that we didn't had to wait until the very last chapter until Rhodes and Aurora banged. They are usually good guileless people with good hearts and interesting backgrounds and I enjoy that you have to work a little bit to get to know them, even if they all are a little similar. Not my favorite MZ book, but still pretty solid and comfort read and recommendable for everyone who loves Kulti/TWOWAM.and even though a lot of shit happened to Aurora (losing her mom, getting dumped and kicked out by her ex and was treated like shit for 14 years), she still had a positive, optimistic personality because she focuses on the good in her life and how she's thankful about all the people who genuinely love her and doesn't take her for granted. A lot of the story, therefore, is Aurora settling in, figuring out what's next in life, coming to terms with past demons that have trampled her heart into itty bitty pieces (but not her spirit - and yes, I'm aware that a lot of this is sounding like a Hallmark card) and reconnecting with her past and the world around her. I dont mean it, forget i said it" it became repetitive and i think it is written to be awkward and endearing but just comes across as annoying to me.
