Summary:Vidhya Thakkar- Indian blogger, Mumbai blogger, book blogger, Book blogger Mumbai, vidhyathakkar
Sunita Rishi’s just turned twenty, having completed her graduation. She wants to fly free as a bird, explore career options and travel the world. Does she have a choice when Mamma & Pappa insist on arranging her marriage? Born in a rich business family steeped in tradition, Sunita has a tough job on her hands. Can she stop the tide?
Tall, dark and handsome, Akshay Malhotra is the catch of the decade. The only son of Billionaire Raj Malhotra, he’s in a strange fix. His father’s keen that Akshay meets Sunita with marriage in mind. He’s too close to his parents to say ‘no’ for the preliminary meeting. And then he comes face-to-face with Sunita….
Will Sunita be falling from the frying pan into the fire when she agrees to become The Malhotra Bride?

The story revolves around Sunita, who is just graduated and want a career oriented girl, was going to get married as decided by her parents. That where Akshay Malhotra comes to her life. Will she get married? will she fulfill her dreams? or will do what her father says? there’s much more to the story.
The author has shown the conservative nature of Sunita’s parents. Like every parent, they too, are worried about securing their daughters future. They want her to be the bride of  Akshay Malhotra, The most eligible bachelor in the town. Will she say yes to him? will she agree for the marriage? most importantly, will Akshay agree for arrange marriage?  and then a contract happened!

I loved the plot of the story. The concept the story is really good. The author managed to show two different thinking in this book. While Sunita’s parents were conservative and strict in nature, Akshay’s parents, were totally opposite of that. They encouraged Sunita’s dreams and pushed her to fulfill them.  Mrs Malhotra, being herself a businesswoman ensured her, to fulfill all her dreams and have a career of her choice after marriage. I loved witnessing two different thinking, and personalities of parents. The author created strong characters, full of confidence. One will fall in love with Akshay’s character. The way he cared for Sunita’s dreams, unlike her father, was something impressive. I also loved Sunita’s character, her confidence, her obedience and her thirst to fulfill her dreams and make a career was something I loved.I loved the character of Ratan Rishi- Sunita’s Grandfather, who supported her grandchild in all her aspect.  He always supported Sunita and showed her right part. His nature was completely opposite of his son’s nature. he was more practical. The author narrated the story beautifully. the narration was smooth, crisp and connecting. The book is divided into 20 chapters, and each and every chapter is well narrated. The author has shown the reality, what a girl goes through when she is forced to get married to someone she doesn’t know. The author narrated the reality with a completely new perspective. The pace of the story is also good. The flow of the story simple and serene. The tempo of the story is full of twists and turns, with some amount of mystery, romance and love. The author has used simple language, which connects the reader easily with the book.  There are some grammatical errors which were ignored because of this wonderful story. There are dialogues which keep the reader hooked to the story.
I loved the title of the book, the cover is also good but could have been more creative.

WOnderful characters, crisp narration, simple language and an amazing plot makes it an interesting read. It’s like a complete Bollywood movie. It’s a quick, easy, Romance story with lots of drama.
