The Wedding Crasher
Books | Fiction / Romance / Multicultural & Interracial
Named one of the most anticipated books of 2022 by EW, Oprah Daily, Marie Claire, Goodreads and Bookpage! The USA Today bestselling author of The Worst Best Man is back with a hilarious rom-com about two strangers who get trapped in a lie and have to fake date their way out of it... Just weeks away from ditching DC for greener pastures, Solange Pereira is roped into helping her wedding planner cousin on a random couple's big day. It's an easy gig... until Solange stumbles upon a situation that convinces her the pair isn't meant to be. What's a true-blue romantic to do? Crash the wedding, of course. And ensure the unsuspecting groom doesn't make the biggest mistake of his life. Dean Chapman had his future all mapped out. He was about to check off "start a family" and on track to "make partner" when his modern day marriage of convenience went up in smoke. Then he learns he might not land an assignment that could be his ticket to a promotion unless he has a significant other and, in a moment of panic, Dean claims to be in love with the woman who crashed his wedding. Oops. Now Dean has a whole new item on his to-do list: beg Solange to be his pretend girlfriend. Solange feels a tiny bit bad about ruining Dean's wedding, so she agrees to play along. Yet as they fake-date their way around town, what started as a performance for Dean's colleagues turns into a connection that neither he nor Solange can deny. Their entire romance is a sham... there's no way these polar opposites could fall in love for real, right? "Mia Sosa... is genuinely a master of the modern romance novel." -- Cosmopolitan

"It was a little too graphic with the sex scenes for me but I feel like that's a me problem. The story was cute and I liked that one conflict was resolved but immediately another came up so there was no unnecessary fluff. I didn't finish it because it was a bit graphic but if that's your thing go for it this book is fine."
"3.5* This book follows Solange and while helping out a wedding she notices the bride getting cozy with someone who’s not the groom. She ends up objecting to the wedding leaving the groom, Dean, without a bride. When confronted at work about his relationship status, he lies and tells them that he’s actually in a relationship with Solange and the story goes from there. I definitely liked this story more than The Worst Best Man however not by a lot. I really liked both Dean and Solange. They were both fun to follow and I enjoyed the dynamic they had together. Their romance was sweet and I also enjoyed them individually as characters. They had some sweet moments together that I really enjoyed. Maybe because I just read The Worst Best Man right before but I definitely felt like the way the characters got together and then were in denial was very similar to that where they strike up this friends with benefits deal so they can get out their physical attraction they are fighting for each other and then the inevitable third act breakup when they’re confronted with reality to ending up together in the end. I just would’ve liked something a little different that didn’t make me feel like I was reading the same book all over again. Overall I sort of found this book to be fine but I’d recommend it."
"I think this is a really fun read, but felt slightly forced in the plot. The idea of fake dating someone who broke up your wedding is super far fetched. However, as the book continued, the characters had really good chemistry and even had me laughing out loud in certain moments. "
"This is the first book I have ever read by Mia Sosa. I was unsure what to expect. This book ended up being a fun, easy read full of wit that literally made me LOL, spice that had me 😳, and a storyline that kept me wanting to read it every chance I could! The characters were absolutely perfect. I can’t wait to read more by Mia Sosa! "
"Felt very forced with no slow burn. Was hard to get into and didn’t feel anything for the characters whatsoever"
