I just want to start out by saying, Mia Sosa, you are hilarious. Some of the phrases in this book really stuck with me, but by far my favorite is this:
“My mother and aunts will be livid on my behalf. Before this day is over, they’ll organize a search party so they can find [him] and kick him in the balls with the agility and precision of the Rockettes. And considering their entrepreneurial spirit, I wouldn’t be surprised if they sold tickets to the show and titled it The Nutcracker.”
Lina was a character I could really relate to. She knows what she needs to do, and she’s built her career around being a problem solver. The first chapter alone highlights how resourceful she can be.
She’s a devoted daughter, niece, and cousin, and she has an amazing and caring support group to turn to; I loved reading about her family. The only downside was that when her family was mentioned, so was food. You definitely need a snack to read this book!
The one thing this book didn’t have for me was pacing. Lina and Max seem to get over their grievances quickly, and without much communication. I would have loved a scene or two more where they address that they were nearly in-laws.
The book is great, and worth the read, but I needed too much suspension of belief to get past how quickly the romance moved. Considering that is the main plot of the book, I’ve given it three stars.
In The Worst Best Man, Sosa introduces us to Lina, a wedding planner left at the altar, and Max, the best man who is both responsible for abandonment and related to the groom. As one could imagine, things do not go well when Lina and Max are suddenly thrust together on a job, and yet, they also don’t go as badly as expected.
With heart, humor, intelligence, and plenty of passion, Sosa delivers a charming, refreshing, and romantic tale about love, life, family, friendship, and forgiveness. About what it means to finally let go and allow all color of emotions to find their place inside. About acceptance, belonging, and owning who you are and what you want in life, and coming to terms with the idea that what you thought you wanted might not be what you truly need inside.
If you’re looking for a delightful story with amazing characters, witty banter, and fun, involving scenes, pick up a copy of The Worst Best Man by Mia Sosa. It’s a stellar read, and in my opinion, a masterfully entertaining romance novel.
In this book we get to met real life people that I swear walked off the streets and onto the pages. The descriptions are so clear and life like I feel like Lina, who is a wedding planner is standing right beside me as she brings in the bride wearing a funky green dress. Lina is not your normal prissy wedding planner no she is guarded, a bit snarky and if I would say so smart a##. She doesn't take crap from anyone and there is reason for that.
Then we have Max and Anthony brothers who are both connected to Lina. One the past and one the present. Both work for their mother in a large marketing/pr company and are working to get a contract with Cartwright Hotels.
Lina is offered a chance to work for Cartwright Hotels But she has to build a marketing/pr concept with one of the brothers. The other brother well he has another wedding planner. Yep life ...
This book had laughs in pranks and other fun things and it had crying too. There were so many fun cool things I loved exploring like Lina's Brazilian family food. I can not wait to read more from this author and see where she leads me and what she has me eating too.
This month’s romance pick for @romancethequebookclub was the new release The Worst Best Man. This book has all my favorite romance themes, hate to love, stranded with only one bed, fake relationship, and hidden relationship.
I devoured this book in 2 sittings and was loving the banter, the pranks, and the steam. This book was steamy. I think I’ll be reading more from Mia Sosa.

I enjoyed parts of the book such as Max's relationship with his brother, however I found the character of Lina really lacked a personality, apart from being Brazilian (which must have been mentioned 100+ times) we learnt very little about her as a person and there was little to no character development.
Also all the conflict was very forced, particularly towards the end of the book, it was very much "oh no I've reached the third act and have run out of things to write so lets randomly rip the couple apart" as well as many other cliches.
Like I said, the book is fine, but I doubt I will be reading more from this author.
