**4.5-stars rounded up**
You’ve swept me off my feet again, Rachel Lynn Solomon. I see you and it’s like you see me too.
Quinn Berkowitz is the harpist for her parent’s wedding planning business.
Tarek Monsour is a cater-waiter, and aspiring baker, whose family’s catering business is frequently hired on by the Berkowitzs for events.
Over the years, the two have worked a lot of weddings together.
Somewhere along the way, Quinn became a skeptic of the whole love thing, while Tarek went completely in the other direction. He’s now over-the-top romantic; full of positivity with regards to love.
Last summer, Quinn became fed up with watching Tarek’s grand gestures to other girls. Perhaps she had secretly grown to like him more than she admitted.
When she called him out on it though, her ire seemed to ruin everything. He left for college and they didn’t talk for a year.
As summer returns, so too does Tarek, home from college and again working with his parents.
The first wedding Quinn sees him at is uncomfortable as heck, but this is a romantic comedy, so y’all know what’s coming.
We Can’t Keep Meeting Like This is exactly as adorable as it sounds. Solomon always knows how to bring the cute, as well as relatable substance.
This book is full of incredible OCD rep, sex positivity and exploration of other issues a lot of young adults go through; like, what the heck do I want to do with the rest of my life?
Solomon is always able to handle serious topics well and seamlessly incorporates them into otherwise light-hearted narratives.
This is the YA Summer Romance that should be on everyone’s reading list. I highly, highly recommend it!!
Thank you so much to the publisher, Simon & Schuster Books for Young Readers, for providing me with a copy to read and review.
Rachel Lynn Solomon is an autobuy author for me and I can’t wait to see what cutesy-creation she dreams up next!!!
