Her main aim in life is to escape her traditional parents, get to university and begin her plan for tech world domination.
He’s rich, good-looking and a hopeless romantic. His parents think Dimple is the perfect match for him, but she’s got other plans…
Dimple and Rishi may think they have each other figured out. But when opposites clash, love works hard to prove itself in the most unexpected ways.
Perfect for fans of Rainbow Rowell, Jenny Han and Nicola Yoon, WHEN DIMPLE MET RISHI is a frothy, funny contemporary romance set at a coding convention in San Francisco over one exciting summer. Told from the dual perspectives of two Indian American protagonists, Dimple is fighting her family traditions while Rishi couldn’t be happier to follow in the footsteps of his parents. Could sparks fly between this odd couple, or is this matchmaking attempt doomed to fail?
Dimple Shah’s ambitions include going to university, conquering the tech world and definitely not marrying someone and settling down (much to her mother’s dismay). Meanwhile, Rishi Patel is a follower of tradition and quite loyal to his family, which thinks that he and Dimple are perfectly matched. The two are polar opposites, but it’s also true that opposites attract, isn’t it?
When Dimple Met Rishi is in my top 5 most anticipated releases for this year. The premise, the cover, the title – it all drew me. I knew I had to get my hands on this book asap. And sure, I’m not a huge contemporary fan, but I do love dorks falling in love. Much like Rishi, I’m a romantic (but only when it comes to books, mind you.) I read this book in a day and completely fell in love. Continue reading “When Dimple Met Rishi by Sandhya Menon [Review]”
