Ashish Patel didn’t know love could be so…sucky. After he’s dumped by his ex-girlfriend, his mojo goes AWOL. Even worse, his parents are annoyingly, smugly confident they could find him a better match. So, in a moment of weakness, Ash challenges them to set him up.
The Patels insist that Ashish date an Indian-American girl—under contract. Per subclause 1(a), he’ll be taking his date on “fun” excursions like visiting the Hindu temple and his eccentric Gita Auntie. Kill him now. How is this ever going to work?
Sweetie Nair is many things: a formidable track athlete who can outrun most people in California, a loyal friend, a shower-singing champion. Oh, and she’s also fat. To Sweetie’s traditional parents, this last detail is the kiss of death.
Sweetie loves her parents, but she’s so tired of being told she’s lacking because she’s fat. She decides it’s time to kick off the Sassy Sweetie Project, where she’ll show the world (and herself) what she’s really made of.
Ashish and Sweetie both have something to prove. But with each date they realize there’s an unexpected magic growing between them. Can they find their true selves without losing each other?
So, this will be very brief since I want to get back to reading and finish this book. Menon’s writing is absolutely gorgeous! I fell in love with Dimple and Rishi so when I found out there was going to be a book about Ashish, I just knew I would love it too. And so far, I’m really loving it. It might even be better than When Dimple Met Rishi, but we’ll see.
This book is just the cutest! I’m loving the chemistry between Ashish and Sweetie and think they are so adorable together. Sweetie is a fantastic heroine. I think she’s so brave and beautiful. Ashish is also wonderful and I am falling so hard for him.
But what I really love about this book (so far), is that I can really relate with Sweetie. Not going into personal details, but I definitely feel what she does.
Anyway, I think this book is going to be on my top ten favorite reads in 2019 and I’m off to finish reading! I’ll have my full review soon.
Thanks for stopping by loves! Don’t forget to add this book on your TBR.
