To Leila Abid’s traditional Indian parents, finding a husband is as easy asmatch, meet, marry. Yes, she wants to marry, but after 26 years of singledom, even Leila is starting to get nervous. And to make matters worse, her parents are panicking, the neighbors are talking, and she’s wondering, are her expectations just too high?
But for Leila, a marriage of arrangement clashes with her lifelong dreams of a Bollywood romance, where real love happens before marriage, not the other way around. So she decides it’s time to stop dreaming and start dating.
It’s an impossible mission of satisfying her parents’ expectations, while also fulfilling her own western ideals of love. But after a series of speed dates, blind dates, online dates and even ambush dates, the sparks just don’t fly! Now, with the marriage clock ticking, and her 3-month deadline looming in the horizon, Leila must face the consequences of what might happen if she doesn’t find “the one…”
I enjoyed this book. I could not put it down because I wanted to see what would happen with Leila concept of her dreams vs. reality. There were parts that made me laugh when she goes on the dates. I enjoyed how her parents are looking out for her and yet can be a little demanding. I can see Leila’s loves her parents but also wants her own thing. I think this book is rich, funny, charming and has diversity in it! If you are looking for a book to read in one sitting this might be it for you. It took me a few days to read because my life has other things that come first. If I had all the time in the world, this book would be done in one day. I look forward to more books by this author.

What it is about:
Vi Solaris is on the eve of getting everything she’s ever wanted—her family, her home, her throne—and to save the world she’s going to have to give it all up.
The Empire sees her as their Crown Princess, returning at long last. But Vi only sees visions of fate guiding her to the world’s gruesome end. Across the sea is a man who holds the keys to deciphering her premonitions and thwarting the ancient evil ravaging their world. But to get to him, Vi will have to contend with enemies of the crown, romance she didn’t expect, sorcerer pirates, and a betrayal she never saw coming.
She will learn the hard way that some evils never die… They only bide their time…
My Quick Review:
I enjoyed Vi’s adventure in this book. She had to make a hard decision and her brother supported her in it. It was nice to see what her brother was all about, Romulan. It continues on and on with twists and turns. Some I never saw coming and some that I had a hunch on. It is a fast pace book and just so cool. If you are a fan of fantasy and adventure, this is a must read. Read the first book first though! As one thing after another happens in this book, Vi shows strength and determination. She wants to save her father and figure out her vision. I think it’s pretty cool that she has visions and has these abilities to fight. Elise Kova’s world of magic and fighting and adventure explodes in this book. So amazing!! This book I managed to read in few days due to being a mom! Anyways I am ready for book three and can’t wait to see what adventure Vi goes on next.
