it was amazing

This book should have been titled "The Taming of the Beast". Sorry Mr. Shakespeare!

Falguni Kothari's delightful romantic comedy -- with just the right amount of angst! -- tells the story of Diya Mathur (aka Beauty) who pines for a fairytale romance with her childhood friend Krish Menon (whom she lovingly calls the Beast)! Diya may be a diehard believer of fairytales but she is no airy-fairy pushover. She wants love on her terms and when she fears it is unlikely to happen, she decides to build her career as a supermodel. And succeeds spectacularly. However when her shoe fetish leads her to buy a baby bootie, the paparazzi begin to spread malicious rumours and her reputation is in ruins. To escape from the vicious rumours she takes refuge with the Beast. Living in the same house with a man she is secretly in love with is wrought with all kinds of complications. How the drama queen tames the beast...is well worth the read.

Falguni has a wonderful effervescent writing style that I totally flipped for...it has a chicklit feel to it without the irritating first person narrative! The only quibble that I have about the book is, Krish Menon as the brooding, workaholic Beast takes too long to come into his own as a man worthy of Beauty's love! But when he does so in the latter half of the book, he does it in spectacular fashion!

I highly recommend this fun read for all lovers of romance and chicklit.
