The Wedding Crasher
Cover of The Wedding Crasher
The Wedding Crasher
A Novel
by Mia Sosa

Named one of the most anticipated books of 2022 by EW, Oprah Daily, Marie Claire, Goodreads and Bookpage!

The USA Today bestselling author of The Worst Best Man is back with a hilarious rom-com about two strangers who get trapped in a lie and have to fake date their way out of it...

Just weeks away from ditching DC for greener pastures, Solange Pereira is roped into helping her wedding planner cousin on a random couple's big day. It's an easy gig... until Solange stumbles upon a situation that convinces her the pair isn't meant to be. What's a true-blue romantic to do? Crash the wedding, of course. And ensure the unsuspecting groom doesn't make the biggest mistake of his life.

Dean Chapman had his future all mapped out. He was about to check off "start a family" and on track to "make partner" when his modern day marriage of convenience went up in smoke. Then he learns he might not land an assignment that could be his ticket to a promotion unless he has a significant other and, in a moment of panic, Dean claims to be in love with the woman who crashed his wedding. Oops.

Now Dean has a whole new item on his to-do list: beg Solange to be his pretend girlfriend. Solange feels a tiny bit bad about ruining Dean's wedding, so she agrees to play along. Yet as they fake-date their way around town, what started as a performance for Dean's colleagues turns into a connection that neither he nor Solange can deny. Their entire romance is a sham... there's no way these polar opposites could fall in love for real, right?

    Starred review from January 10, 2022
    A fake relationship upends the lives of two fiercely independent protagonists in Sosa’s brilliant follow-up to The Worst Best Man. When Brazilian American Solange Pereira crashes white stranger Dean Chapman’s wedding-of-convenience, she stumbles on a reason why the couple shouldn’t get married and stops the ceremony. To make up for it, Solange agrees to pretend to be Dean’s girlfriend to help him land a partnership at his law firm—and she eventually calls in the same favor to cover a lie her mother told her judgmental aunt. Solange is holding out for true love, while Dean doesn’t believe in love, thanks to his mother’s tumultuous romances. Both agree to keep things strictly for show—but as they share secrets, build an easy camaraderie, and discover mind-blowing sexual compatibility, this proves easier said than done. Meanwhile, their busybody families (Solange’s cousins are a hoot) conspire to push them toward each other. But when Dean’s mother grieves another failed relationship and Dean learns that Solange has been keeping a secret, his pessimism about romance may spell their doom. Sosa takes incredible care developing this slow-burn romance, delivering characters readers will want to hang out with and plenty of belly laughs. With a smooth mix of cultures and a heartwarming narrative of self-discovery through love, this is an invigorating take on a favorite trope. Agent: Sarah Younger, Nancy Yost Literary.

  • AudioFile Magazine Rebecca Mozo and Alastair Haynesbridge narrate a fake-dating rom-com. Solange Pereira interrupts a wedding to stop the groom from making a terrible mistake, and now that groom, Dean Chapman, has to completely reconstruct his life plan because of a wedding crasher. Mozo's charming and funny portrayal of Solange plays up her tendency to be witty and sarcastic while hiding deep insecurities. In contrast, Haynesbridge's portrayal of Dean is more muted, as Dean is naturally a quieter person who also tends to hide his true self. Ultimately, Solange and Dean determine that they're a team--each other's person and best ally. Mozo and Haynesbridge capture their relationship perfectly through all its ups, downs, and sideways.

    Starred review from September 1, 2022

    Crashing the wedding her wedding planner cousin asked her to help out with wasn't really on Solange Pereira's to-do list, but when she accidentally caught the bride-to-be confessing her love to the best man, what was she to do? Now jilted groom Dean Chapman isn't that hung up on losing his intended--it was a marriage of convenience--though he does now need someone else to prove to his law firm he's steady, solid, and ready to be promoted. Feeling guilty about her role in ruining Dean's wedding, Solange agrees to be his fake girlfriend and help show off Washington, DC, to a new potential lawyer at Dean's firm. While Solange courts a future using her new education degree far away from her huge Brazilian American family and hometown, Dean begins to wonder if he'd like to convince Solange to be his real girlfriend. Narrators Rebecca Mozo and Alastair Haynesbridge bring laugh-out-loud life to this delightful rom-com follow-up to Sosa's The Best Worst Man. VERDICT Listeners will likely be on the edge of their seats for the dual narrations and hilarious, steamy, moments. A must-listen for fans of Tessa Bailey's Hook, Line, and Sinker.--Elizabeth Gabriel
