Tap Left by A. Zavarelli
Former hot mess seeking
From now on, I’m going to do everything right. I’m going to make good choices. Say goodbye to the bad boys, narcissists, and emotionally unavailable men. Because starting today, I’m a girl on a mission.
Find a man to walk me down that aisle.
It’s a good solid plan, but there’s only one tiny hiccup.
I’ve asked for his help because if anyone can make me marketable, it’s him.
He’s also one of the aforementioned emotionally unavailable bad boys/ narcissists. Oh, yeah and he slightly crushed my soul once before. But no biggie. I’ve got three whole weeks to exorcise him from my head and my heart… for good.
I loved Tap Left. It was the perfect book for me. It had everything I love in a story. All that angst and drama and hate, but not hate. Oh, I loved this story. I enjoyed the author's other books, but this is now my new favorite.
Lola is super sweet, but she makes the worst decisions when it comes to men. She just wants to find someone to love her. Someone she can marry. She was going to marry her latest, boring guy because hey, why not? They have been together for a while and that is what you do right? So what if she is not madly in love with him. She just wants the stability and everything that comes with it. So she is going to change. She is going to figure out how to get better men and find one to marry. Easy peasy.
Only it is not so easy. Lola already has everything you could want in a partner, she just doesn't know it. But Adrian Daire does. He has known Lola for a long time, but these two don't get along very well. Daire is a huge jerk to her, but she still has this little thing for him. Maybe he is why she is not making good choices. She doesn't want to get hurt again like she did once upon a time.
Daire and Lola share a past. Something happened and when you start reading you don't really know what. All you know is someone died. Someone that links these two together even now. That is the only reason they still see each other - because of their past. I loved figuring out what actually happened and how these two were together. There is so much anger and hurt and feelings between them that it is not easy. Daire is always kind of a jerk, but a bossy, take charge jerk that Lola can't seem to stop thinking about. Can't seem to actually stay away from especially once she asks him to teach her how to get the guys.
Oh this story I couldn't put down. I felt so bad for Daire at times Yes he is a jerk, but he also has a huge heart. I loved him so much. There were a lot of ups and down in this story. People needing to find the truth and fight their demons. People needing to grow into the person they can be so things might have a chance of working out. Lola and Daire were amazing together. Sure they started out as enemies, but were they really? Or were they meant to be right from the start and things just kept getting in the way of that?
