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 managed to make other people’s dreams come true as a top-tier wedding coordinator in DC. After impressing an influential guest, she’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.

Tired of living in his older brother’s shadow, 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-fiancĂ©e. And she loathes him.

If they can survive the next few weeks and 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.

But even the best laid plans can go awry, and 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
This is my first book I have read by Mia Sosa. I was unsure of it at first, but once I really got into the heart of the story, I devoured it. It was a really fun, steamy book so if you are into that I definitely recommend it.

The book starts with the prologue of how Lina was left at the altar and that's where the conflict starts because it's all Max's fault. When she has to work with him and his brother (her ex) to get a job that she really needs, she lies and pretends she doesn't know them. The stakes get raised really high here, but it was fun to see them getting to know each other.

Lina does play a few pranks on him to get her revenge, which I do think felt kind of immature and not necessary to the book at all. Maybe that can get cut. I did really like how they worked together and how passionate Max was about his job. 

One thing I didn't get was why Max thought he was in the shadow of his older brother. Andrew kind of seemed really incompetent and it seemed like Max ended up doing most of the work for them and Andrew took credit for it. Andrew was the worst! 

Both the hero and heroine have a lot of insecurities that instead of talking to each other about their fears, they keep it all inside. It causes them to pull apart from each other which kind of broke my heart for them. Never fear though, they do get their HEA!
