Critically acclaimed author Mia Sosa delivers a sassy, steamy enemies-to-lovers romantic comedy about a woman whose new job requires her to work side-by-side with the best man who ruined her wedding: her ex-fiancé’s infuriating, irritating, annoyingly handsome brother. Perfect for fans of Jasmine Guillory, Helen Hoang, and Sally Thorne!
A wedding planner left at the altar. Yeah, the irony isn’t lost on Carolina Santos, either. But despite that embarrassing blip from her past, Lina’s managed to make other people’s dreams come true as a top-tier wedding coordinator in DC. After impressing an influential guest, she’s offered an opportunity that could change her life. There’s just one hitch… she has to collaborate with the best (make that worst) man from her own failed nuptials.
Tired of living in his older brother’s shadow, marketing expert Max Hartley is determined to make his mark with a coveted hotel client looking to expand its brand. Then he learns he’ll be working with his brother’s whip-smart, stunning—absolutely off-limits—ex-fiancée. And she loathes him.
If they can survive the next few weeks and nail their presentation without killing each other, they’ll both come out ahead. Except Max has been public enemy number one ever since he encouraged his brother to jilt the bride, and Lina’s ready to dish out a little payback of her own.
But even the best laid plans can go awry, and soon Lina and Max discover animosity may not be the only emotion creating sparks between them. Still, this star-crossed couple can never be more than temporary playmates because Lina isn’t interested in falling in love and Max refuses to play runner-up to his brother ever again…
I picked this one up because as I’ve mentioned in many previous reviews that I’m on a romance kick. This is one that I’ve seen a ton of people talking about so I had to grab it when I saw it available as an eBook through my library.
I enjoyed this book for the most part. I liked the banter and familial aspects. The romance was interesting and believable. I loved how diverse it was and how Lina shares her culture with the people around her. This book definitely made me hungry. It also totally made me want to plan a wedding (which is silly because I’m already married.) I loved the competition aspect of the story as well. Lina is trying to get a job for a well-known hotel and help them add weddings to the many things they provide for their clientele.
I’m going to keep this review short because I don’t have all that much to say about this book. I enjoyed it, but I wasn’t totally comfortable with the whole falling in love with her ex-fiance’s brother concept. I get that Andrew’s the one that left her, but this was just a little unrealistic to me. I don’t know many people that would actually let this happen, let alone it ends up being a successful relationship. Despite this, the story was fun and entertaining.
Keep on reading lovelies, Amanda.
