The delightful follow-up to When Dimple Met Rishi and There’s Something about Sweetiefollows Pinky and Samir as they pretend to date—with disastrous and hilarious results.

Pinky Kumar wears the social justice warrior badge with pride. From raccoon hospitals to persecuted rock stars, no cause is too esoteric for her to champion. But a teeny-tiny part of her also really

Y'all. We got A TITLE and a kind of a SYNOPSIS and our MCs and I am here for all of it! This has the fake dating trope. I love, love, love the fake dating trope so, so much! Plus, like I've loved everything Sandhya Menon has released so far and I'm certain this won't be any different! Is it late spring/early summer 2020 yet? IS IT.

Note: Thank you to the author for providing an e-arc in exchange for a review!

Even in a world full of fear, uncertainty and chaos, it's so reassuring to read a Sandhya Menon novel and know what I will encounter: smart, brave and wonderful desi girls, soft cinnamon roll love interests, focus on sisterhood and most importantly, a happy ending and no one dies!

Honestly, while enemies to lovers isn't my favorite trope, fake dating definitely is my jam so to encounter both in the book? I APPROVE.

The Candid Cover (Olivia & Lori)
How much fun does this book sound?! I love that it features Pinky and a fake dating trope. Menon’s books always seem to deliver, and I can’t wait for a summer rom-com.

It should be no surprise to anyone that I love Sandhya Menon's books, so when I saw 10 Things I Hate About Pinky up on Edelweiss, I immediately downloaded it and basically binge read it. I have no regrets.

If you're a fan of Menon's other books, especially if you loved When Dimple Met Rishi, you will love this!

Like Menon's other books, Pinky is filled with a lot of heart and humour, along with an entire cast of Desi characters. Pinky and Samir are two characters that I think a lot of people will

Wow, this book comes out on my birthday and it follows Pinky!!! I NEED THIS! I loved pinky so much in there's something about sweetie she reminded me of Lily Moscovitz from the princess diaries. I cannot wait to read her story.

I will read anything Sandhya Menon releases and while I like all of them there are a few that I absolutely love and this is one of those books that I love. Pinky Kumar is one of those characters that you fall in love with hard and fast; don't get me wrong she has lots of problems and more often than not you want to grab her and shake her but her heart is always in the right place.
When Pinky proposes that Samir is her pretend boyfriend for the summer (Samir is just the type of boy that her

First of all, thank you to Edelweiss for the ARC!

Secondly, I am super excited to review the third book in the Dimple/Rishi universe! At this point, my friends/coworkers/anyone who interacts with me knows that I kind of have an author crush on Sandhya Menon. Literally every time I see that she has a new book out, my day becomes brighter, the birds chirp a little louder, the flowers smell fresher, and the world becomes an all around better place. I am happy to report that this latest book

I received an e-ARC of this book from Edelweiss to review.

I was so excited to see that there was another book in the Dimple and Rishi universe by Sadhya Menon, and it did not disappoint.

This book takes previous side characters Pinky and Samir and places them in an unlikely romance. What starts out as a fake dating situation to get Pinky's parents off of her back inevitably becomes more complicated. I love a good fake dating story!

As always, Menon's characters are what make the story. Pinky is

Thank you to Edelweiss for the eARC of this book in exchange for an honest review.

This was a cute continuation of the Dimple & Rishi universe. I absolutely adore the characters that Sandhya Menon has created. Those familiar with the film, "10 Things I Hate About You" will appreciate the nods to the film. I didn't enjoy this one as much as the first two, but it will be a book tween and teen readers will love when it releases in June. Now, I want a book that brings the first three stories

Another delightfully fun and funny story from Sandhya Menon! I loved getting to see the complexity of Pinky and Samir and how their actions say so much about their characters! I'm so glad to be back to the Dimple/Sweetie universe characters. Who's next: Dolly?

I read the ARC, so here's some feedback on what I found clunky (not much): a typo or two, the movement of time, and Samir's mom, who sort of fell out of the loop after the second day, which seemed unlikely.

Review copy courtesy of Edelweiss.

Another enjoyable romance in her series, this one’s about fake dating, which always seems a little trite but the summer setting and saving the butterfly sanctuary B-plot makes for a quick, fun read.

Pinky and Samir pretend to be dating while on summer vacation with Pinky's family only to fall for each other IRL. Fun and romantic and totally entertaining.
