Ohhhhh, what a read Zapata turned out to be and I found it to be rather enjoyable. It wasn’t as suspenseful as I thought it would be, but it definitely had it’s moment scattered throughout the book.
I’d say that this is definitely a slow-burn that puts you on a thrilling ride as these two try to avoid the crazy psychopathic drug lord that is Javier Ramos.
I have to say that Avery was very much that girl in a thriller movie that does everything you’re not supposed to do. And that had me constantly shaking my head at her and yelling no. However, I would have zero idea what I’d do in her shoes especially when it’s a live or die situation.
But she grows significantly throughout the story and definitely came out stronger (and smarter) by the end.
Ahhhh, the slow burn between Avery and Alejandro, I truly loved it so much. But I’m not a huge fan of fade to blacks, so that bummed me out a bit. I loved that you could always feel the sizzling tension between them. And my goodness, Alejandro is just everything!
I enjoyed the fast-paced story line, which made it tough to put this book down. Plus with all the twists and turns, my brain was on overdrive while reading Zapata. I have no idea what’s to come with the rest of this series, but I’m definitely looking forward to reading more by this author.
