The Best Thing by Mariana Zapata
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.

I think I would love everything Mariana Zapata will write. I developed a game for myself to try and find another extremely good writer on slow burns, but so far, I’ve come short. She is one of my go to authors and I’ll re-read her books ‘till the day I die.
The Best Thing is the story of Lenny DeMaio, Luna’s best friend and how she ended up after a trip to France, where she met Jonah Collins and ended up pregnant with his baby girl.
The catch is that now, Jonah is back, and he just found out he has a baby girl. Before, he planned on convincing Lenny to get back together with him, but now he needs her to trust him again. And trust requires time and commitment, things that Jonah is willing to step up.
Jonah is a rugby player who had an injury that made him disappear, because he though his life was over. Little did he know how this will impact his life had he confined in Lenny and stayed with her.
I don’t want to spoiler much, but this is a must read! The side characters are to die for, Lenny is a kick ass heroine that will blow you away, and Jonah.. well, he’s from New Zeeland. Enough said, read the book or listen to it on audio and you’re in for a treat.
