Mariana Zapata: Wait for It

If anyone ever said being an adult was easy, they hadn't been one long enough.

Diana Casillas can admit it: she doesn't know what the hell she's doing half the time. How she's made it through the last two years of her life without killing anyone is nothing short of a miracle. Being a grown-up wasn’t supposed to be so hard.

With a new house, two little boys she inherited the most painful possible way, a giant dog, a job she usually loves, more than enough family, and friends, she has almost everything she could ever ask for.

Except for a boyfriend.

Or a husband.

But who needs either one of those?

Mariana Zapata: Wait for It

Az imént elkezdtem gépelni a következő mondatot:
Tipikus lassan felépülő romantikus történet.
Aztán rájöttem, hogy a szó, „tipikus”, pont hogy nem igaz rá.

Diana egy nagyon nehéz helyzetbe került, ahol egyedül maradt két kisfiúval. (Akiket mellesleg imádtam, főleg Louie-t.) De minden fájdalma és nehézsége ellenére úgy tud ezzel a két gyerekkel bánni, mintha semmi problémája nem lenne a világon, nem engedi, hogy bármiben is a negatív oldalát lássák az életnek. Ez nagyon szimpatikus hozzáállás volt, hogy bár a gyász egy nagyon erős központi téma a regényben, nem volt tőle nyomott és depresszív jellege.

Terjedelmét tekintve hosszú könyv, de úgy gondolom kellett ez az oldalszám ahhoz, hogy tényleg tudja szemléletni az írónő, hogyan alakulnak ki olyan emberibb érzelmek, amik már komplexebbek a tucatregényes 20-oldal-alatt-megszerettelek-gyerehozzám típusú románcoknál.
Szép történet volt, tele humorral és bár volt benne 1-2 olyan jelenet, ahol éreztem, hogy az írónő nem veti meg a kereskedelmi tv-s szappanoperákat, mégis valóságközelibb tudott maradni, mint kategóriájának más tagjai.

Összegezve: Ajánlom mindenkinek, akinek az angol nyelv nem akadály. Én biztos, hogy még olvasni fogok az írónőtől.

„Fine then. On day you'll find some poor idiot to love you.” She smiled at me, reaching her hand across the bed, and I took it. „If you don't, we'll pay someone to pretend they do.”

„Lou, what do you want to eat?” he asked my littlest.
He pointed at the meat pizza and then jabbed a finger at the hot wings. „One.” I held up a finger at him, squinting with one eye, and he added, „Please.”
Dallas's eyebrow went up at the please, but he scooped up a slice and set it on the plate. His hand hovered over the container of hot wings before he asked, „These are spicy. Can you handle it?”
I could only blame myself for the shit that came out Louie's mouth next. I really could. Beucause i said the same thing in front of him a dozen times in the past.
„I'm a Mexican. Yeah.
Those hazel eyes swung in my direction, wide and completely fucking amused. „All right, buddy. If you say so.”

„I don't think all those tattoos are good to have around kids, no?”
I groaned. „Tattoos don't jump out and attack people, Mamá.”

„I have to put this stuff on you and wait ten minutes before you can shower. So get naked, you dirty monkeys.”
Louie groaned, „But I took a bath yesterday.”
While the other one – God help me – yelled, „You're a pervert!”

My hand started moving around the outside of my purse, trying to find the inner compartment when Louie suddenly yelled, „Mr. Dallas, don't let her get her pepper spray!”
The fuck? Oh my God.

„There're a million other women in the world who would love to be with you – ”
„You want me to go find them?” he asked with way too much humor in his voice.

“You remind me more of Princess Peach.”
I looked down at my shorts and tank top, and caught the ends of my
multicolored brown hair courtesy of careful instruction to Ginny. “Because of
my beautiful pink gown and blonde hair?”
Dallas’s mouth went flat. “She’s surrounded by men, but she’s still
herself, and she’s got her shit together on Mario Kart.”
I couldn’t help but smile, taking in the sloping bone structure of his face
and the way his mouth was shaped at a slant and said, “I always did think I
should have been born a princess, Mr. Clean.”
The choke that came out of him made me laugh.
“Mr. Clean?” he eventually got out, all choppy and broken.
Peeking at him, I shrugged and tipped my chin toward his head.
“I have hair.”
I squinted at him and hummed, trying so hard not to laugh. “Uh-huh.”
“I shave it every two weeks,” he tried explaining.
“Okay,” I coughed out, my cheeks hurting from the effort not to laugh at
how bent out of shape he was getting.
“It all grows in evenly— are you laughing at me?

Something was going to get broken before the end of the night, and I had no way of knowing what it would be. My sanity maybe.

„I'm married.”
I lost it.
„Good for you. Did I say you weren't?” Jesus Christ. I'd already mentioned I knew he was married and didn't want to have anything to do with that. „I have married guy friends, and by some miracle, I've managed to keep my hands to myself every single time I've spent time with them, if you can believe that.”

It was almost as if he could read my mind because he raised his eyebrow.
I raised mine right back, repeating the word in my head.
