Dimple Shah has it all figured out. With graduation behind her, she’s more than ready for a break from her family, from Mamma’s inexplicable obsession with her finding the “Ideal Indian Husband.” Ugh. Dimple knows they must respect her principles on some level, though. If they truly believed she needed a husband right now, they wouldn’t have paid for her to attend a summer program for aspiring web developers…right?
Rishi Patel is a hopeless romantic. So when his parents tell him that his future wife will be attending the same summer program as him—wherein he’ll have to woo her—he’s totally on board. Because as silly as it sounds to most people in his life, Rishi wants to be arranged, believes in the power of tradition, stability, and being a part of something much bigger than himself.
The Shahs and Patels didn’t mean to start turning the wheels on this “suggested arrangement” so early in their children’s lives, but when they noticed them both gravitate toward the same summer program, they figured, Why not?
Dimple and Rishi may think they have each other figured out. But when opposites clash, love works hard to prove itself in the most unexpected ways.
I have been meaning to read this book for a while now and I’m so glad I finally did.
I also don’t think there is that much more that I can say that has not been said about this book.
This book was super cute and fun to read
I enjoyed the characters though Dimple took a few pages to really like. She seemed almost a bit too headstrong or stubborn but that went away as I got to know her better. I really ended up liking her. Rishi, I loved from the beginning. He was sweet funny and yet a little sad side to him but for the most part he is Mr. positive and just has a way to make you smile.
The story as mentioned was super cute and funny. Their meeting first time meeting was priceless. It also had a lot but not overwhelming amount of Indian Culture, which I really enjoyed. It had a great flow and was fast paced and super easy to follow which made it for a quick read. I did liked the setting of the book as far as the Con and I also enjoyed the side characters that actually had a twist to them.
Overall I really loved the book and I would give it 5 stars but of course we have some very predicable drama as well, which I thought could have been avoided and is just such a trope in YA, NA or really any contemporary romance or rom-com.
Aside from that I really loved this book and looking forward of reading more books by this author.
I rate it 4 ★
