Book : The Trouble with Hating You.
Author : Sajni Patel.
Genre : Fiction , Romance , Contemporary .
Rate : 4/5
Review in one word : surprising .
Surprisingly , this one was a great read with deep and interesting topics .
” I know you don’t approve of the traditional ways . We weren’t blindly arranged and I have the opinion to decline . Arranged does not equate to forced “
The book talked about the concept of arranged marriage and how much it’s misrepresented in many ways , which I really admired.
It also , discussed the importance of getting to know others before judging them , the mistake of making assumptions depending on the first impression .
I liked how the author focused on the concept of how things aren’t always as they look .
The strength and independence of Liya ( the main character ) were really impressive.
Loved the relationship between Jay and Liya , it was lovely , respectful and healthy .
Trigger Warning : Child molestation.
All in all , this was a very interesting read .
Highly recommended .
Goodreads synopsis :
A 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 marry, she’s out the back door in a flash. Imagine her surprise when the same guy shows up at her office a week later — the new lawyer hired to save her struggling company. What’s not surprising: he’s not too thrilled to see her either after that humiliating fiasco.
Jay Shah looks good on paper…and off. Especially if you like that whole gorgeous, 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 chance?
As always , thanks for reading .
Until next time .
Be kind and stay strong.
