But when opposites clash, love works hard to prove itself in the most unexpected ways.~Goodreads
These characters were awesome. Both Dimple and Rishi are smart as hell, quick-witted and over all just adorbs. They are pretty much the perfect match for each other. What I truly loved about Dimple and Rishi is that their friendship was built on being supportive and encouraging towards one another. Their chemistry was super organic and I enjoyed watching them fall for each other.
This book is so much more than just a love story though, it is FULL of rich culture, complicated family dynamics and the pursuit of one’s own dreams. This book had it all.
I totally need a sequel.
Also I need an Ashish/Celia spinoff please!
