Can’t Wait Wednesday – WE CAN’T KEEP MEETING LIKE THIS by Rachel Lynn Solomon
“Waiting On” Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted at Breaking the Spine, which encourages fellow bloggers to spotlight upcoming releases that we’re excited about. It is a meme that I have loved participating in since I first started blogging, but as Jill is no longer actively posting, from now on I’ll be linking to Can’t Wait Wednesday, hosted by Tressa at Wishful Endings, which is a spinoff of the original WoW meme.

My selection for this week is WE CAN’T KEEP MEETING LIKE THIS by Rachel Lynn Solomon. So far every book I’ve read by Solomon has ended up being a 4.5 to 5 star read for me, so I’m very excited to find out that, in addition to her upcoming adult contemporary romance, The Ex Talk, which I’ll be reviewing on Friday, she also has a YA contemporary coming out this summer. It sounds like the perfect summer read too.
WE CAN’T KEEP MEETING LIKE THIS by Rachel Lynn Solomon
Publication Date: June 1, 2021 by Simon & Schuster Books for Young Readers
A wedding harpist disillusioned with love and a hopeless romantic cater-waiter flirt and fight their way through a summer of weddings in this effervescent romantic comedy from the acclaimed author of Today Tonight Tomorrow.
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.

I’d love to hear what upcoming book releases you’re waiting on this Wednesday? Leave me your link in the comments below and I’ll stop by and check out your CWW selection for this week. 🙂
Be still my heart, how adorable is this?! (also the art of harp-making? I want to know more about that!)
I know, right? I was really curious about the harp making too. 🙂
This sounds really sweet, and I love all the wedding hijinks!
Me too. It sounds like there should be plenty of laugh out loud moments. 🙂
Oh, this one sounds like fun! Just the kind of lighter escape that we all need… I hope you really enjoy it, Suzanne:)
Yes, I’m finding that I’m still very much craving those lighter reads. I think last week’s Camilla Bruce novel is the only exception I’ve made to that lighter read trend lately.
I love the idea that this story revolves around weddings, it just sounds adorable!

We Can’t Keep Meeting Like This sounds like a fun read. I really want to read the author’s The Ex Talk. I haven’t read anything else by her yet. I hope you enjoy We Can’t Keep Meeting Like This when you read it!

I loved The Ex Talk!
I don’t even need to read the synopsis for an RLS book. I am all in.

This one is very high on my TBR list too! I’m hoping the publishers will send me an ARC of it like they did with Today Tonight Tomorrow. Great pick! My post is in the link below!

I love her books so, so much! Can’t wait for this one.
I do too. She is fast becoming one of my favorite authors. 🙂
I love it when an author consistently turns out good books! This sounds fun, a harpist and the caterer? Fun! 🙂

Me too. I love having go-to authors that I just know I’m going to love. 🙂
I’m waiting for Diane Cook’s The New Wilderness and the new book by George Saunders.

Those are both new to me but they sound really good.
I swear one day I’ll read one of her books! Between you and Sam I feel compelled to Suzanne LOL
Sophie recently posted…Illuminae by Jay Kristoff and Amie Kaufman was one of the most brilliant audiobooks I have listened to!#2021AudiobookChallenge
If you do, I hope you love them. I think you would love The Ex Talk especially. 🙂
I’ve only read Solomon’s adult romance so now I want to dive in to her other works!
I’ve had really good luck with her books so I hope you will too. 🙂
I haven’t read any of her adult romance yet, even though they all sound good, but this sounds super adorable and fun and I definitely hope to pick it up when available 🙂
I hope you love it!
Oh this sounds like such a wonderfully fun and lovely read Suzanne. I must admit, I haven’t read anything by Rachel Lynn Soloman before but her writing reminds me a little of Morgan Matson and I absolutely adore her books! What a great pick this week and thanks for putting it on my radar, going to check out her previously releases while waiting for this one.

I’ve only read a couple of Matson’s books but that sounds like a pretty good comparison. 🙂
These adult romances look so cute. I love Sophie Kinsella’s work and just about any british contemporary.

I’ve not read many of Kinsella’s books but I really enjoyed her latest one.
