Waiting On Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine where you spotlight a highly anticipated book.
Happy Wednesday, Bookworms!
One of my most anticipated books of 2021 is The Dating Plan by Sara Desai, which will be published March 16 from Berkley Books.
The cover for this book is so pretty! I love that Daisy, one of the main characters, is a software engineer. This rom-com also has two tropes I like to read about: one, where the main character creates a plan/rules but gets more than they expected throughout the process, and, two, faking dating (or in the book’s case, fake fiance).
ABOUT: Even with a step-by-step plan, these fake fiances might accidentally fall for each other in this hilarious, heartfelt romantic comedy from the author of The Marriage Game.
Daisy Patel is a software engineer who understands lists and logic better than bosses and boyfriends. With her life all planned out, and no interest in love, the one thing she can’t give her family is the marriage they expect. Left with few options, she asks her childhood crush to be her decoy fiance.
Liam Murphy is a venture capitalist with something to prove. When he learns that his inheritance is contingent on being married, he realizes his best friend’s little sister has the perfect solution to his problem. A marriage of convenience will get Daisy’s matchmaking relatives off her back and fulfill the terms of his late grandfather’s will. If only he hadn’t broken her tender teenage heart nine years ago…
Sparks fly when Daisy and Liam go on a series of dates to legitimize their fake relationship. Too late, they realize that very little is convenient about their arrangement. History and chemistry aren’t about to follow the rules of this engagement.
