Can't-Wait Wednesday [90]

Can't Wait Wednesday is a weekly feature that's hosted by Tressa at Wishful Endings. It highlights the upcoming releases we're really excited about reading! CWW is a spinoff of the feature Waiting on Wednesday (WoW), that was started by Jill at Breaking the Spine.
Make Up Break Up by Lily Menon
Expected publication: February 2nd 2021

Synopsis (via Goodreads): Love, romance, second chances, fairy-tale endings…these are the things Annika Dev believes in. Her app, Make Up, has been called the “Google Translate for failing relationships.”

High efficiency break-ups, flashy start-ups, penthouses, fast cars…these are the things Hudson Craft believes in. His app, Break Up, is known as the “Uber for break-ups.” It’s wildly successful—and anathema to Annika’s life philosophy.

Which wouldn’t be a problem if they’d gone their separate ways after that summer fling in Las Vegas, never to see each other again. Unfortunately for Annika, Hudson’s moving not just into her office building, but into the office right next to hers. And he’ll be competing at the prestigious EPIC investment pitch contest: A contest Annika needs to win if she wants to keep Make Up afloat. As if it’s not bad enough seeing his irritatingly perfect face on magazine covers when her own business is failing. As if knowing he stole her idea and twisted it into something vile—and monumentally more successful—didn’t already make her stomach churn.

As the two rival app developers clash again and again—and again—Annika finds herself drawn into Hudson Craft’s fast-paced, high velocity, utterly shallow world. Only, from up close, he doesn’t seem all that shallow. Could it be that everything she thought about Hudson is completely wrong? Could the creator of Break Up teach her what true love’s really about?

Fun fact: Lily Menon is a pseudonym for Sandhya Menon, the author of When Dimple Met Rishi, There's Something About Sweetie, and others!


  1. I knew she was writing an adult book, but didn't realize she was using a pen name. I am excited about all these YA authors crossing over.

    1. Me too!! I cannot wait to read the stories they come up with. :)

  2. AhhHHH! I didn't realise this was the same author! I loved When Dimple Met Rishi and From Twinkle, with Love! This sounds brilliant and I love an enemy to lovers type romance. What I love about her books is that she writes tough female characters who are vulnerable and super likeable as well. Will be adding this one to my wishlist as well, thanks for putting it on my radar Linds!

    1. I didn't realize it at first either! I happened to see her mention it on Instagram. :) Yes! Her female characters are so relatable, and I cannot wait to see how that reflects on her older characters. I hope we both love it! <3
