Book Review: When Dimple Met Rishi by Sendhya Menon


When Dimple Met RishiWhen Dimple Met Rishi by Sandhya Menon
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Dimple and Rishi have been arranged to be married. They're complete opposites. Dimple doesn't like traditional Indian ideals and tries to stay far away from them. She's not interested in finding the perfect Indian husband. Her main priority is this awesome summer program where she can use her web developing skills. Rishi is a hopeless romantic, the perfect Indian boy, total boyfriend material. He can't wait to woo his future wife. Both of them are attending the same summer program because their parents thought it would be a great way to begin their arrangement. And adventure begins.

This book is everything I wanted and more. We have the trope of opposites attract, a swoon worthy romance, a strong independent female lead, a sweet and wonderful male lead, and enjoyable characters overall. Rishi Patel is what book boyfriend dreams are made of. The book is told in dual perspectives, which is great because you get to see what both Dimple and Rishi are thinking. They both have wonderful character development.

This book is about self discovery, love, and family. This has been my most anticipated book of the year and I'm so glad that I had the chance to read it. It's an outstanding debut novel. It's a great representation of Indian culture and a wonderful own voices novel. I look forward to reading more of Sandhya's work in the future. If you love contemporary romance novels you NEED to read this book. If you only read one book this year it has to be this one.

I received an ARC from the publisher via Net Gallery.

Sincerely, JoJo. ♥
