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 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.
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 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.
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...
APPLE BOOKS REVIEW
Mia Sosa’s smart, funny romance is a roller coaster of swoony emotions and laugh-out-loud moments, peppered with smart observations about how women of color are treated in the workplace. On what was supposed to be the happiest day of Lina’s life, her future husband left her at the altar. Years later, she’s working as a top wedding planner when she receives a career-making invitation to partner with a luxe hotel. The catch? The gig would entail teaming up with her ex-fiancé’s brother, Max, the guy who convinced Lina’s ex to ghost. Dueling male and female narrators alternate chapters, laying out this opposites-attract tale with a punchy he-said-she-said dynamic. We waited in giddy anticipation for these two characters to get together. Suffice it to say that The Worst Best Man nearly melted our earbuds.
