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.
I knocked up my best friend's sister. Let's start with how she decided to inform me and Pacey the news...together. Imagine that nightmare. I was going into what I thought was a hockey marketing meeting, and then bam! I'm going to be a dad and my best friend/teammate is attempting to imprint my face with his fist. Threats were tossed around, friendships were revoked, and then I was marched up to her apartment, suitcases in hand, and forced to live with her so I could take care of her every need. Now I'm finding it harder and harder not to fall for my best friend's little sister.
With a new ring on her finger, Ophelia is in dire need when it comes to dealing with her nightmare of a mother-in-law and planning a wedding. Thankfully her best friend of more than 10 years has recently found some time on his hands, so she recruits Breaker Cane to be her faithful \"man in waiting\".
In the next couple of chapters, we get alternating POVs, so we watch Lina in her new life and then we watch Max -and Andrew- in their new lives, which seems to show them working together at this hotel family business. So, yup, in a matter of a few scenes...LINA - MAX - ANDREW will face their worst nightmare. They will all meet again after not seeing each other for 3 very long years.
Basically, Lina will be in a mini-competition for a job as a wedding planner at the hotel. She will have to work in tandem with ONE of the brothers, who will take a wedding planner under their wing, get to know them as well as possible and then attempt to arrange a marketing campaign to \"sell\" the best wedding planner to their female CEO. She is...I felt she was mostly Aunt-like or akin to family-thru-marriage to Max & Andrew, but they still kept their professionalism and weren't about to give any favors just for being part of the family, in the family business
Anyway, the other side of perfection is Lina herself. Lina was giving me strong and fascinating Latinax vibes...and mainly making me miss my best friend [Maddie, who is from Puerto Rico - Lina was like Maddie to me, and Lina's family was Maddie's family to me]. Lina is not-so-perfect, but she is trying. And she is surrounded by the most wonderful family, immediate and outer-rim [like cousins who feel like sisters]. They are Portuguese and there is a stable family business of a grocery/bodega/mini-restaurant; Lina tends to show up here A LOT...and they always seem to be connected to cooking and a small kitchen A LOT. This story is not just filled with great Latin/Portuguese representation, but the cooking, food...and consumption of this gorgeously descriptive food -even when it's not Portuguese. These scenes are wonderful and heartwarming because you are allowed to see Lina a little bit unbound and still broken because she realizes she has to succeed because her family has BEEN THERE for her ever since her ruined wedding day. Certain businesses that are connected to Lina's planning business are fading and failing, so, yeah...she kind of NEEDS this job at the Hotel to keep not only her own business afloat but to also help her help family and friends succeed, too.

A fresh twist on the classic enemies-to-lovers theme, Sosa's trade paperback debutbrings to life Afro-Latinx heroine Carolina Santos, a driven, successful owner of a wedding planning company whose own marriage was derailed by a runaway groom. Well past the drama, and with her career in high gear, Lina suddenly finds herself teamed up with the brother of the man who left her at the altar as they pursue a golden business opportunity.
Money is the biggest concern for most people thinking about retirement. Suze Orman is the queen of straight-talk about how best to manage your finances during this chapter of your life. She explains practical steps you need to take to make sure you have enough money to last your lifetime. I love that she is ruthless about making readers consider the long-term effects of their purchases and financial decisions.
Wolman and Colmosca, former BusinessWeek writers, were among the early writers to expose just how bad 401(k)s were for workers. They showed how Wall Street interests profited from the plans at the expense of retirement security. They knew a lot about stock market investing and doubted that, even in the best of situations, the stock market would be able to produce enough value to adequately support retirees. They came to the conclusion that the 401(k) system could not be reformed and should be abolished. I liked the book because it was coming from people within the system (BusinessWeek) who realized that it was not working.
This enemies-to-lovers romance is delicious. Three years after wedding planner Carolina Santos is left at the altar, she is forced to work with her ex-fiance's best man to win a big client. Super steamy, with mouth-watering food descriptions, this is a winning rom-com. Recommended by Allyson. 59ce067264
