“The spicy aromas of curried vegetables and buttery roti wafted from the kitchen, rolled through the hallway, and greeted me in the foyer .” 💛

I love that this romance is out in the world!! The representation is wonderful to have in the romance genre and I fell hard for Jay, the male love interest!! Man, I really want to meet the guy in person and his whole family too! If I was single and in my 20s, he’d definitely make my ovaries burst hahah! But alas, I had a hard time with Liya, the protagonist. She’s strong and she’s overcome a lot, including an unsupportive parent, and I really liked that these issues were tackled but she has some really high walls and it felt tiring to try to scale them, even as a reader. Which makes me love Jay even more!! Her girl crew is awesome and I really enjoyed just reading about the social lives of these young Indian Americans in Texas. It’s fun and fresh and hopefully more books will come with some of her girl crew (I’m looking at you, Preeti!) because I’d definitely read more! It was a lovely time reading this with thechicklitbookclub even though I had to miss our chat with the author! 😫 It’s always an amazing time with this group! 💛
