Book Review: The Best Thing by Mariana Zapata

The Best Thing
by Mariana Zapata
Release Date: August 7, 2019
Source: Kindle Unlimited 
Some things are easily forgiven. Other things… not so much.

Lenny DeMaio made herself a promise: she was done.
Done thinking about him.
Done worrying about him.
Done reaching out to a man who clearly didn’t want to be found.

Too bad no one gave Jonah Collins the memo.


THIS BOOK WAS SO BORING. I love Mariana Zapata's books, but I think that's because I started with her most popular (Winnipeg and Kulti). When I started this book, I was so annoyed with how redundant the story was. Literally the first 20% of this book is the main character complaining over and over and over and over again about how much she hates this guy who ghosted her for a year and a half. We figure out around that 20% mark why she was so mad at him when he shows up, but then she spends the rest of the book reminding us how mad she was that he didn't respond to her. 

As for Jonah, the love interest? WHAT A BORE. Seriously, his character had NOTHING going for him except for that he was a rugby player (who was currently between teams) and that he was a giant. And the main character never let us forget how massive he was. Also, his reason for cutting her off was SO STUPID and made no sense. And it was just kind of brushed aside and they moved on. Seriously? Can you feel my annoyance from here? I slugged through this book and didn't care at all about the romance, especially since it took until like 97% into this book for any romance to actually happen. While Mariana Zapata is known for her slow burn romances, this book was just plain slow. I didn't care about anything. 

The redundancy in this one was so surprising to me because I don't remember that in the other books I've read by this author. I could have done without reading this one and it's definitely my least favorite from Mariana Zapata to date.
