The worst best man
Just a couple of years ago, Andrew ditched Lina on their wedding day, because Max, Andrew’s brother, said something to him the night before. Now Lina is running her own business as a wedding planner and at one wedding, Rebecca approached her, giving her a great opportunity. Lina gets the opportunity that can change her life. She only has to create the best presentation on why they should pick her. The only problem is that she has to work with a marketing expert, which is Max. Lina can’t stand Max, but the other option was to pick Andrew as a marketing expert which is even worse. But the more time they spend together, the more sparks are flying between the two. But starting something with Max would be the worst idea ever.
What a great book! That is all I can say. This book had everything I needed at this moment. It was cute, a little bit dramatic (but not too much) and romantic. It was the perfect distraction from life. I couldn’t stop reading one night. There were many things happening and I couldn’t put the book down, even though I really had to go to bed.
Lina almost got married to Andrew, but he left her at the altar (well sort of) and she hates him for doing that. But she also hates his brother Max because apparently, he said something to him and Andrew changed his mind about marrying Lina. Now she has to work with him, so there is already a lot of tension. And Lina was not completely stupid or blind. She knew she liked him eventually, but she decided that a relationship would be the worst thing ever. First of all, because they are working together now. Second, because she almost married his brother and third Lina likes to be in control. Lina is in control when she is around people like Andrew, but around Max, it is a completely different story. And she wants to marry someone like Andrew. But honestly, if you can control your emotions/feelings all the time around a certain person, I think that means they mean nothing to you. If you are truly in love, you will have feelings that will make you do certain crazy things.
I found out that Mia Sosa also wrote a few other books that sound very promising and I definitely added a few of them to my wishlist honestly, I can’t wait to read them. Because I really liked her writing style. The only thing that was hard for me to understand, was the Portuguese sentences. Lina is Brazilian-American and she and her family still speak that language. But it was not easy to figure out what everything meant. I like when people care about their culture, and I definitely appreciate it when authors write about this. But for someone who is Dutch, who reads in English and does not understand Portuguese it was not always easy. In movies, you have subtitles. For books, it is a completely different story. You have to explain what it means. I think Mia did a great job with that. When someone said something in Portuguese, the other would respond in English, which made it easier to guess what the other one said. But other times I had no clue.
But yes, I can definitely recommend this book. I mostly bought it because it was cheap (1.99 euros), but it definitely did not disappoint me. It was a nice enemy to friends to lovers book. It got me out of my reading slump. Thanks to this book, I am excited to read it again. This is probably one of my favourite books I’ve read this year.
