I’m impatiently waiting for Mariana Zapata’s new book to hit my kindle. So I’m reading all kinda random books. I don’t wanna be caught up in an ARC when Luna arrives. But it’s been kind of fun reading a little recklessly. And it led to this super fun read.
When I saw a post in one of my online book groups asking for a good grovel I was all over it. A groveling hero is such a THING for me. And at least 2, maybe 3, readers responded with The Unwanted Wife. It’s free on KU so I thought “what the heck” and dove in. Score!
So at first the simple writing made me uncomfortable. And then the book started to seem so familiar. I realized that it had a lot in common with The Unfaithful Wife. Like a lot a lot. I had to stop and make sure I hadn’t read this book before.
But slowly it developed its own vibe. And I was HOOKED. I’m talking sport-fishing here. Sandro was forced to marry Theresa (unbeknownst to her). She is so into him – and he isn’t into her. Then she’s over it – but he’s acting a little different…
Dude spent a good hunk of the book groveling. It literally made my toes curl. This is the best grovel I’ve read that I can remember. I’d be hard-pressed to come up with something better. Just absolutely delicious.
