You Had Me at Hola by Alexis Daria

Avon, 2020

This book is glorious. That’s it. End of review.

Okay, okay. Here’s more…You Had Me at Hola is witty and emotional. It’s full of nuanced characters and vibrant, interconnected families. It’s layered and complex but it’s also bright and fun. Jasmine and Ashton are telenovela/soap opera stars who play love interests in a new series they each hope with launch their careers. The glamour and the drama and the gossip and on-set life…it’s really fun to read. In fact, I was nearly as into the story of Carmen and Victor (their TV roles) as I was the rest of the book. It was like a two-for-one romance within a romance. But the heart of this book in grounded in the emotional work of each MC as they make their way to each other.

Loved this book. The cover is pure, colorful FIRE. And it comes out on August 4th which happens to be my mom’s birthday so *maybe* it’s going to magically arive on her doorstep that day. Don’t miss this one!

Thank you Netgalley and Avon for the opportunity to read an advanced copy. I voluntarily read and reviewed this book and all thoughts and opinions are my own.
