The Plot (from Goodreads):

After burning out in her corporate marketing career, Michelle Amato has built a thriving freelance business as a graphic designer. So what if her love life is nonexistent? She’s perfectly fine being the black sheep of her marriage-obsessed Puerto Rican-Italian family. Besides, the only guy who ever made her want happily-ever-after disappeared thirteen years ago.

Gabriel Aguilar left the Bronx at eighteen to escape his parents’ demanding expectations, but it also meant saying goodbye to Michelle, his best friend and longtime crush. Now, he’s the successful co-owner of LA’s hottest celebrity gym, with an investor who insists on opening a New York City location. It’s the last place Gabe wants to go, but when Michelle is unexpectedly brought on board to spearhead the new marketing campaign, everything Gabe’s been running from catches up with him.

Michelle is torn between holding Gabe at arm’s length or picking up right where they left off—in her bed. As they work on the campaign, old feelings resurface, and their reunion takes a sexy turn. Facing mounting pressure from their families—who think they’re dating—and growing uncertainty about their futures, can they resolve their past mistakes, or is it only a matter of time before Gabe says adiós again?

The Review: 

Thank you to Avon for this gifted physical copy and to Harper Audio for the audiobook in exchange for an honest review.

I enjoyed this book even more than the first in the series! A Lot Like Adios combined all my favorite romance tropes: friends to lovers, fake dating, and workplace-ish romance. The romance jumps right in from the beginning of the book, which seemed a little different from the norm to me. Usually there’s a lot of buildup with only a little romance in friends-to-lovers stories, so I really enjoyed this change of pace.

Michelle was a great main character. I loved how she wasn’t afraid to take what she wanted, and I loved watching her grow throughout the book with regards to her career.

Similar to You Had Me At Hola, A Lot Like Adios had very strong family themes. I loved the scenes when the whole family was together! We got to briefly see Jasmine and Ashton from Book #1, and of course the Primas of Power came together again to help Michelle through her problems.

If you haven’t read this series yet, it’s definitely one you should pick up asap.
