Have you wondered if someone would say something when the officiant says speak now or forever hold your peace at a wedding? Solange in the Wedding Crasher by Mia Sosa probably should have done just that, kept her mouth shut.
About The Wedding Crasher
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?
This was a fun Rom Com where Solange is helping her cousin, who is a wedding planner, as her assistant. Solange takes upon herself after overhearing the bride-to-be talking with a groomsman, to interrupt the wedding before Dean, the groom say’s I do to a woman who’s in love with someone else.
When I started this book, I didn’t think Solange should have eavesdropped on the conversation. However, it would be wrong to marry someone you’re not in love with. The good thing is that in doing this she not only stopped Dean from making a mistake, she’s recruited to help him with another engagement.
I liked the interactions between the characters especially when Dean and Solange have to work with Peter and his wife to entertain a potential lawyer, who may transfer to their firm. I also liked that Peter keeps trying to catch them in a lie because he just wants to take Dean’s spot in the law firm.
The things Solange and Dean get into to keep the fake dating rouge up was funny. There were also a couple of twists in the story that made me laugh. I’ve learned that I am more of a enemies to lovers and romantic suspense romance reader, but a good fake dating trope isn’t bad especially when it’s done well. I recommend The Wedding Crasher to readers who like Rom Com’s and who likes a good laugh.
