Book Review: You Had Me at Hola

Author: Alexis Daria

Release Date: August 4, 2020

Rating: 4.5 out of 5.

Fans of Jane the Virgin will not want to miss You Had Me at Hola. You Had Me at Hola is an entertaining rom com.

Jasmine and Ashton are stars in a new telenovela. Both are using this show as hopefully a stepping stone for their careers. Jasmine’s last breakup is all over social media and the news. Ashton was killed off of his last show and doens’t want to do any more telenovelas. They play on screen love interests but how will that work if they develop feelings for each other?

Jasmine and Ashton meet when Ashton spills coffee on Jasmine before the table read.

You Had Me at Hola is cute and funny with serious moments. I laughed and cried. You Had Me at Hola is basically an Americanized telenovela in book form. It was so refreshing to read during the current state of the world.

I recommend this to any fans of rom coms especially if you are a fan of telenovelas or Jane the Virgin.

Thank you Edelweiss and Avon for this ARC in exchange for an honest review.
