Loved the book! Characters are so lovable and the desi representation was amazing. The book does work as a standalone but I’m glad I read the first book before reading this one. 
The cast of characters being ultra rich and successful feels very reminiscent of Karan Johar’s Bollywood films. In saying that, I would love to see this book turned into a movie or limited series. 
The book was a lot kinkier than expected but still enjoyable. 
Can’t wait to read the next instalment in the series

I am apparently always going to be a fan of a Shakespeare retelling. Bobbi and Bunti, the aunties, their friends, the shaadi sabateur, all of it made for such a fun read that I drew out the last few chapters so it wouldn’t end.
I love men who can’t get over their feelings, no matter how hard they try. And Bobbi being so strong both in her relationships with those she cares about and in her business. The give and take between them, the grumpy/grumpy antagonist nature they shared, all of it made the tension so much more delicious when they finally gave in.
