The Wedding Crasher | Mia Sosa | Book Review

The Wedding Crasher is the companion romance to The Worst Best Man by Mia Sosa. It features Dean, who is the best friend of Max from the previous book; and Solange, who is hired to help with Dean’s wedding. Everything thing is all set, ready to go until Solange overheard the bride having a private conversation with her best friend. After hearing the conversation, she can’t help but feel that the wedding should not going on …. and finds herself objecting before the couple officially says I do.

The thing Solange doesn’t realize is that the wedding is more of a business arrangement than a love connection. So Dean isn’t exactly heartbroken about everything falling apart except he finds himself needing a significant other in order to possibly make partner as a law firm. He asks Solange for her help and the two begin a hilarious and sweet faux-relationship scenario.

Dean is afraid of love because he sees it as a sign of weakness if you are vulnerable for someone else. Solange has never been able to fully settle but when she does she wants someone to be one hundred percent in. These varying perspectives cause quiet a few very interesting moments for the pair. They are spicy together; and very much in denial that there really is anything going on between them. This type of dynamic is one of my favorites, and Mia Sosa nails it in this story.

I also enjoyed the dynamic of the familial ties between Solange, her mother, and her aunts. There is positive representation of Brazilian-Americans, single mothers, and having pride in ones culture. The aunts are hilarious and are so not buying into Dean and Solange’s denial. I loved how both Dean and Solange defended each other in front of their family and friends. They were a real solid unit together.

The Wedding Crasher is the second book I have read by Misa Sosa and she is quickly earning her spot on my must read shelf. I’m really into books that have strong characterization and that is exactly what you get with her writing style. Her characters feel real and inviting. I’m always rooting for the couple to stay together in the end and for me that is a sign of a good book.
