Opposites attract in this romantic comedy about a free-spirited lawyer who is determined to find the perfect match for the grumpy bachelor at her friend’s wedding

After a devastating break-up, celebrity-obsessed lawyer Zara Patel is determined never to open her heart again. She puts her energy into building her career and helping her friends find romance through the wedding season. She’s never faced a guest at the singles table she couldn’t match, until she crosses paths with the sinfully sexy Jay Donovan.

Former military security specialist Jay has no time for love. His life is about working hard, staying focused, and winning at all costs. When charismatic Zara crashes into his life, he’s thrown into close contact with exactly the kind of chaos he wants to avoid. Worse, they’re stuck together for the entire wedding season.

So they make a deal. She’ll find his special someone if he introduces her to his celebrity clients. But when their arrangement brings them together in ways they never expected, they realize that the perfect match might just be their own.


I love how Sara Desai displays different sides of Indian culture and families in each book in this series. They are all very fun romcoms with laugh out loud moments, serious topics, emotional relationships, and plenty of steam.

I love how Zara is so unapologetically herself. She and Jay have such great chemistry and angst with their enemies-to-lovers, grumpy sunshine vibes.

However, sometimes the hijinks crossed a bit too far to the wrong side of ridiculous, and by the end I was tired of all the predictable romcom beats.
