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.



Publication Date: June 1, 2021 by Simon & Schuster Books for Young Readers


From Goodreads:

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.

    Be still my heart, how adorable is this?! (also the art of harp-making? I want to know more about that!)

      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.

    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!

    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.
