If there’s one thing Carolina Santos knows, it’s that her wedding to Andrew Hartley will go off without a hitch. After all, she is a wedding planner. So when Max, her groom’s younger brother and best man, delivers the news that Andrew has hit the road and the wedding is off, Lina is understandably thrown for a loop. She’s also determined to leave the entire Hartley family behind for good. Unfortunately, if Lina wants to land her dream job, she’ll have to work on a pitch and presentation with Max, the one responsible for convincing Andrew to call off their wedding. For his part, Max is tired of spending his time playing second fiddle to his older brother, and if he and Lina can manage each other’s company long enough to nail their presentation, they both stand to come out ahead. That’s a big if, with the two of them battling their growing attraction despite Lina’s desire for a little revenge and the strictly off-limits nature of their relationship.
VERDICT Sosa (Acting on Impulse) delivers a steamy and witty enemies-to-lovers romance. Lina and Max’s relationship grows against a rich background of Lina’s Afro-Latinx culture, and readers will enjoy the complex cast of side characters.
