For review

My Thoughts:
We saw them meet in book 1 and I was sure wondering how it all would play out, and then finally here was their story.

Nayna is a good girl. She never partied, she never met boys. She got a degree anda  good job. And now she will do her parents proud by having an arranged marriage. All to please them as her sister was not a good girl who ran away, and got divorced. But before that she wants a fling!

Raj is a good son. He works hard and took over his father's company. He loves his family and he fears being left like when he was little. So he wants an arranged marriage and a sweet wife at home. But then he meets a vixen.

Oh Nayna was so sweet, I would have loved to be friends with her!
And Raj was so great! I loved him to pieces too. He might want all those traditional things, but that does not mean he is some traditional man.

Oh the idiots Nayna had to put up with before Raj. I am glad her parents thought they were idiots too. And that they did not want to push her into something.

And these two were fun to watch together. He really wants her. But she she thinks marriage is a prison of some sorts.  She will be stuck there and never experience anything. But he will fight for her and try to show her that it does not have to be that way.

And omg the times I went oh uh, drama coming! And then, omg you guys...they talked! They did not jump to conclusions. They talked. Oh I loved it. They were normal people. Oh the little things.

I liked that it was a story about arranged marriages, even if she did put a twist on it. We got to see how bad ones turned out, to good ones. But also how love matches too go sour.

I also learned that Fiji has a big Indian population. I did not know that. Interesting.

But yes a great book that kept me entertained. A great couple that I wanted to get their Hea!

Narrator Justine O'Keef
I enjoy her narration. And she is great in all her roles, from Nayna's gran, to Raj and Nayna. Good variation.

Nayna Sharma agreed to an arranged marriage in the hope it would heal the fractures in her beloved family… only to realize too late that a traditional marriage is her personal nightmare. Panicked, she throws caution to the winds, puts on the tiniest dress she can find, and ends up in the arms of a tall, rough-edged hunk of a man who has abs of steel—and who she manages to mortally insult between one kiss and the next.

Abandoned as a child, then adopted into a loving family, Raj Sen believes in tradition, in continuity. Some might call him stiff and old-fashioned, but he knows what he wants—and it’s a life defined by rules… yet he can’t stop thinking about the infuriating and sexy woman who kissed him in the moonlight then disappeared. When his parents spring an introduction on him, the last woman he expects is her. Beautiful. Maddening. A rulebreaker in the making.

He’s all wrong for her. She’s all wrong for him. And love is about to make rebels of them both.


  1. I just finished reading this one and feel the same. It was a sweet story. I loved the culture and the arranged marriage, but not. I loved the pair, so perfect for one another. And the drama but not drama. Very Bollywood, right?

    1. Drama and no drama was great :) It was a fun one for sure

  2. Nalini Singh and Bollywood... yeah, it fits. Still not for me. Been there, didn't want a t-shirt.

  3. I've been eye balling this series :D

  4. I do love that they talked! That solves so many problems :)

  5. That's pretty cool this book showed a side of the culture of arranged marriages, with a spin on things.

  6. You make a convincing argument that I should definitely try this one. I'll have to pick up Cherish Hard to start from the beginning.

    1. Yes, I really think that you should try it, or just start here

    1. TALKING! It is the most insane thing ever

  8. I still need to try her contemporary romance. I love her paranormal stuff.
