About the Book- The Worst Best Man by Mia Sosa


“A romantic comedy that’s fun and flirty, young and fresh.” – PopSugar 

Named one of the Best Romances of 2020 by EWCosmoOprahMagBuzzfeedInsider, and NPR!

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…

The Worst Best Man is rom-com perfection. . . Sosa has a gift with words that’s infectious and wry, one that keeps the pages turning in delight.” — Entertainment Weekly

Goodreads Page

“He’s that friend you always find your way back to, the one who knows all your secrets and doesn’t care that you’re flawed, the one who’s seen your “before” pictures because he’s in them.”

Our Review of The Worst Best Man

To be honest, the book follows the traditional sweet romantic comedy template and the base theme it uses is Enemies to Lovers. Now this fact can be seen in two ways. a) that it follows the usual predictable plot line and it is nothing new B) Because of this usual and predictable and similar template, the book is perfect for the fans of this genre as it has all the elements that make the genre likeable. The Worst Best Man has all the usual ingredients and follows the same recipe and that is my only problem with the book but if I keep that aside, it is a pretty sweet book

One of the things that the book does a bit differently is the family angle which works perfectly and the author also uses the book to give a peek and brush into Latin culture. I think one of the adorable factors about the book has to be the whole family of our FC. They are given their proper stages where these characters shine and make the book sassy and entertaining.

Romance is pretty predictable which also means that it is sweet, delectable and cute. At least there is a reason for why there is animosity between the two characters and why eventually they fall for each other. Usually, enemies to Lovers romances fall flat because they do not seem to justify the reason for hate in the first place. I loved how the book kind of subtly educates over a lot of aspects. Culture, of course, is there but also approaching heartbreak and getting back on your feet is well inserted as a theme which I kind of felt was a nice touch


In conclusion, I would say that if you love a good rom-com, then this book is definitely one you should try. If you are looking for a quick, sweet and fun read with romance at its centre, then you should try it. If you are not a fan of rom-com, then you should not try it .simple as that!
