Descripción

Mia Sosa delivers a sassy, steamy #ownvoices enemies-to-lovers novel, 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 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...

    I really enjoyed this book. Mia Sosa did a great job with the characters, the story, and interjecting cultural thoughts. I’ll definitely be reading more from her.

    Perfect storyline for an enemies to lovers trope. Loved every minute of it, especially Lina's family and friends with the Brazilian culture!

    The Worst Best Man

    I Picked Up This Book Because: I can’t resist the hype around books lately. LOL

    The Characters:

    Carolina “Lina” Santos:
    Max Hartley:
    Andrew Hartley, Lina’s Mother, Aunts and Cousins whose names I don’t remember

    The Story:

    This is my first book by Ms Sosa but it won’t be my last. I love how this story was built. Lina and Max had palpable chemistry even before they made up. I love how they teased each other. They are one of my favorite kinds of couples.

    I really liked this to begin with. I liked the characters of Max and Lina and the glimpses of Brazilian culture. As another reviewer mentioned, I did find it slightly annoying that the Brazilian Portuguese didn’t always get translated or explained but I can see it would be difficult in an audio book. I also wasn’t keen on the voice that the male narrator used for Lina although I did like the use of a male and female narrator for the Lina and Max chapters.

    However, what spoilt the novel for me was the ending. SPOILER ALERT. Lina is supposed to be this great professional wedding planner but she has no qualms about making a speech at her cousin’s wedding (just after her cousin has warned people not to do this) and upstaging her favourite cousin. That lost it a star.

    This is such a sweet and lovely book. It will show you that love can show up at the weirdest time and with someone you would never like but that like can turn into love.

    Loved the story line! And really enjoyed all of the characters in this book
  • (3/5)
    The story would get four stars. The performance would get 2, so I am averaging it. The one flaw that I found with the story is that I really wish that the Portuguese would have been translated-- even in thought-- by the main character more often. I feel like I missed a bit of what her mother and aunts were saying. The story was sweet, and cute, and just what I needed.
    The female narrator was GREAT. The male narrator was not. Not even a little. His female voices were grating, and the male voices that were not Max where also obnoxious and whiny. I found myself wishing he would have just read in a his normal voice, because his normal voice was nice.

    Very competent wedding planner Carolina is not so successful as a bride: her groom leaves her on their wedding day. Three years later, by a quirky set of circumstances, she finds herself working with her almost brother-in-law to secure a dream job. It’s easy for readers to see how this will end up. This racy romp of a romance is liberally laced with saucy and profane language, but the basic story is an interesting one.

    I really like the story as it was! I loved the inclusion of Brazilian culture and the different family dynamics displayed. However, the male narrator gave accents to characters that wouldn't have had accents, which made it slightly inauthentic. All in all, fun story!

    This was a wild ride!!!! Excellent story telling. The way the story was told in first person narrative brought the characters to life. This is my first book my Mia Sosa but won’t be my last. The actors chosen to narrate this book were great.

    What a refreshing read!!!! I can't even begin to tell you just how much I LOVED this book and both characters. Lina and Max were so entertaining and so easy to like.
    Max found away to wiggled himself underneath Lina's careful orchestrated façade and Lina forgot to guard her heart against Max which wasn't suppose to happen.
    Max started out in the dog house in Lina's eyes because he was her ex fiance's bother who talked him out of getting married the night before Lina and Andrew were suppose to tie the knot. Talk about an uncomfortable situation right from the get go when both Max and Lina were working together unexpectedly and trying to play nice. Lina had other ideas though, how to get even and make Max pay for her breakup with his brother. OMG I laughed and smiled throughout this whole book!! Lina's family was a sassy bunch of protective strong willed Brazilian women and boy did they give Max a piece of their mind!!
    My face hurt from smiling so much during this book!! I would highly recommend this read!!

    This was laugh out loud funny with just the right amount of angst. I can’t wait to read the Dean’s book!

    I totally loved it. The steamy scenes were great. I was rooting for the Lina and Max so hard.

    Couldn’t finish it, the story was okay, but the voice the male narrator used when portraying women was terrible.

    DNF, the male narrator's voice for women was awful. It's a shame, since I had been enjoying the story up until that point.

    Book:
    I think I have to accept that I do not like contemporary fiction or rom coms. I just found the book incredible cringy and lost count of the number of time I rolled my eyes. Redeeming factors were the important themes on stereotypes/expectations/interpretations/sexism/racism and the diversity and representation throughout the entire thing. Those aspects I admired.

    Audiobook:
    I've got nothing against the audiobook. The two narrators were good and the speed was perfect.

    It was ok, but little slow. I really did't feel the chemistry. Female narrator was very good, but I didn't like male narrator-he was reading female characters like he was mocking them. All in all... 3 stars!
