review ✓ eBook or Kindle ePUB ´ Sajni Patel

Orgeous charming lawyer in a good suit thing He's also arrogant and infuriating As their witty office banter turns into late night chats Liya starts to think he might be the one man who truly accepts her But falling for each other means exposing their painful pasts Will Liya keep running or will she finally give love a real chanc. This book comes out next week and I hope you add it to your reading list as soon as possible This was such a fun read and I couldn’t put it down Liya is an ambitious biochemical engineer in Houston whose recent promotion has her working around the clock to ensure her company stays afloat Ostracized by her rumor mongering conservative Indian community for being too “American” Liya finds solace in her job and her close knit group of girlfriends each of whom faces expectations of her own One evening Liya’s parents’ invite her to a family dinner that turns out to be a meeting with a potential marriage suitor Upon discovering this Liya sneaks out the back door to literally run into the suitor himself before making an awkward exit Jay is a lawyer who was recently hired to advise Liya’s company When their uncomfortable dinner meeting proves not to be their last encounter he finds himself wanting to spend time with her despite the tension between them He doesn’t let the rumors in the community bother him and their morning breakfasts and late dinners in Liya’s office gradually turn into something In getting to know one another Liya and Jay must grapple with their past traumas before finally accepting the true feelings that blossomed along the wayHeartwarming and thought provoking Sajni Patel’s debut novel features close friendships moments that will make you laugh and others that will make you cry and two very lovable and complicated protagonists Liya and Jay work through their conflicts together going from acuaintances to friends to lovers and transforming side by side into the people they’re meant to be Most importantly their story explores the idea that falling in love does not erase past traumas but it can help you face and work through them towards a brighter futureI found this book so refreshing from the slow burning romance to Liya’s and Jay’s gradually overcoming their past traumas together with a lot of self doubt and guilt in between Neither expects the other to change for them nor does their love magically make them forget their pasts; rather it results in two satisfying characters arcs and a finale that made my heart soar Yes there were some cheesy moments in this book and Liya’s and Jay’s repartee in the middle could get a bit repetitive at times but overall I would highly recommend this book and I can’t wait to read Preeti’s story in book #2 Thank you to Forever Grand Central Publishing via Netgalley for providing me with an eARC in exchange for an honest review All opinions expressed are my own

characters The Trouble with Hating You

The Trouble with Hating YouA laugh out loud romantic comedy debut about first impressions second chances and finding the love of your life in the most unexpected way Liya Thakkar is a successful biochemical engineer takeout enthusiast and happily single woman The moment she realizes her parents' latest dinner party is a setup with the man they want her to. the biggest plot twist of the year is that i actually enjoyed this book bc phew after reading the first 10 chapters i was READY TO DITCHThe Trouble with Hating You is a hate to love romance about two very different characters Liya is a very independent outspoken successful biochemical engineer and Jay is a charming sweet family oriented lawyer Liya's parents want her to stop this independence nonsense and settle down with a nice indian boy and since she won't listen to their pleas they try to ambush her into having dinner with Jay and his mother Things OBVIOUSLY don't do as planned and Liya is pissed at her parents mainly her piece of trash father and even less interested in JayUp until that point in the book I was not sold sure the characters were funny to read on paper but the dialogue felt cliche juvenile and they seemed like caricatures having only one outstanding personality trait that made them what they areThere was even a section of dialogue between Jay and a mutual friend where the friend was going on this long feminist monologue and I felt like IT WAS SO OVER THE TOP and unrealistic to me It was like he was getting on a soapbox in the middle of a basketball game and im like sure there are guys with feminist values but like THIS IS NOT REALISTICAnd from there I was willing to ditch the book bc I haven't been having the best time with books atm but IM SO GLAD I DIDN'T GIVE UP ON IT It was almost an instant change for me I felt the writing characters and the romantic plot accelerated into something so much entertaining and realistic We got some seriously cute scenes between Liya and Jay he would bring her coffee and breakfast and they'd eat together in her office 🥺🥺 and then he'd stay in late with her 🥺🥺 and that's basically the cutest thing I've ever read in my whole life 🥺🥺We got to see deeper in Liya's character find out why she's so standoffish snarky and untrusting of most people We got to see Jay's backstory a dark memory staining his childhood learn about his family and love them too I really appreciated that deeper look into their characters because it made them relatable and realistic rather than just reading about a regular run of the mill romance I really liked Liya's friend group it's always so awesome to see books that give the female lead a group of friends she loves and trusts with her life i AM A SUCKER FOR PURE FRIENDSHIPS OKAYI loved the unapologetic Indian representation The inclusion of the culture was done in such a great seamless way and I'm really glad it added that extra dimension to the story While I did enjoy reading it and found myself wanting to just sit for hours and read I will admit the dialogue isn't always the most profound It is cheesy at times there are some really cliche lines used here and there but overall it was a really sweet fun fast paced readtrigger warnings for view spoilerphysical and emotional abuse parental abuse molestationsexual assault death of a loved one hide spoiler
