Happy Wednesday everyone! I’ve gotten a little distracted by my new bookstagram account and feel like I’ve been neglecting this blog. I’m going to try to make up for it by sharing a fun upcoming release for this week’s Can’t Wait Wednesday (hosted by Wishful Endings). I also have a couple of book reviews that I’m looking forward to sharing with all of you throughout the week.
Quinn Berkowitz and Tarek Mansour’s families have been in business together for years: Quinn’s parents are wedding planners, and Tarek’s own a catering company. At the end of last summer, Quinn confessed her crush on him in the form of a rambling email—and then he left for college without a response.
Quinn has been dreading seeing him again almost as much as she dreads another summer playing the harp for her parents’ weddings. When he shows up at the first wedding of the summer, looking cuter than ever after a year apart, they clash immediately. Tarek’s always loved the grand gestures in weddings—the flashier, the better—while Quinn can’t see them as anything but fake. Even as they can’t seem to have one civil conversation, Quinn’s thrown together with Tarek wedding after wedding, from performing a daring cake rescue to filling in for a missing bridesmaid and groomsman.
Quinn can’t deny her feelings for him are still there, especially after she learns the truth about his silence, opens up about her own fears, and begins learning the art of harp-making from an enigmatic teacher.
Maybe love isn’t the enemy after all—and maybe allowing herself to fall is the most honest thing Quinn’s ever done (Goodreads, 2021)
Comments: This sounds like it will be a highly entertaining read. I’ve always enjoyed the friends to lovers trope (which this seems to be) and am also anticipating a lot of drama as a result of Quinn’s confession. Since finishing my latest read, which was a historical mystery, I’ve been feel the urge to take a break from my usual genres (fantasy and historical fiction). A light hearted romance seems like just the thing right now.
What are some books you are looking forward to reading? Is this something that you think you’d enjoy?
