Oh I just loved this!!
The beautiful intimacy of Indian culture, food, family
and tradition- delightfully complimented with finding a partner through classic arranged marriage ideals ~ with a twist .

Totally appealing to Any rom-com reader, this love story shows how we’re all same, skin deep!

I loved this book so much! The banter, the food, the family, the friends, and mostly Sam. Until near the end of the book, he was the perfect book boyfriend. After mentally slapping him in my head, I still love him. Layla is smart, funny, compassionate, and I just loved her so much too! This was simply a great book with awesome characters, and a story that was so well done, I need more books from this author now!

I started it a day I was feeling down, I was really sad and I wanted to cry and I needed something to distract me so I started this book.

The first 40% of the novel was amazing, I couldn't stop laughing out loud, I loved Layla's and Sam interactions. "Enemies to lovers" is a favourite trope of mine but I think it's hard to write because sometimes the heroes end up being assholes. That wasn't the case here, even if some of Sam comments annoyed me at times, he was respectful and honest with Layla.

Picked this book up because the cover was too cute to pass up and after I read the blurb on the back I couldn't pass this one up. Berkley Romance is quickly becoming one of my favorite imprints and I try really hard not to miss a single book they release.
Layla Patel has come home to San Francisco because she has lost everything; her job, her apartment, her boyfriend and she has nothing but her dignity left when she returns home to her parents house. When her father learns of her troubles he

Shelves: first-reads
This was such a delightful and fun read. Layla and Sam banter and spar while carrying their own baggage. Starting on a bet as to who will keep the shared office space, Sam has to accompany Lalya on her dates as she seeks a husband. These dating scenarios were just so much fun and laugh worthy and pretty much all the Indian men, break the GIG stereotype. I particularly loved all the family dynamics and hope we see more of Layla's family. And, the delicious food descriptions were a bonus. I hope ...more
