Description

Strong-willed and proudly single, an engineer walks out when her parents set her up with a lawyer — but when work brings them together again, she just might give love a second chance.


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 rescue 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 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? Find out in this laugh-out-loud romantic comedy debut about first impressions, second chances, and finding the love of your life in the most unexpected way.

        March 9, 2020
        Patel’s fast-paced romp of a debut offers a peek into the vibrant Indian-American community of Houston, Tex., introducing a self-assured heroine striving for independence from the traditional expectations of her family. Biochemical engineer Liya Thakkar is perfectly happy as a single woman. She has a devoted group of best friends, a new promotion at work, and no problem finding casual flings when she wants them. When her family tricks her into attending a matchmaking dinner, she embarrasses herself and her parents by fleeing—only to later discover her would-be suitor, Jay Shah, is the lawyer assigned to save her company from closing, and they’ll have to see much more of each other. Despite their awkward first meeting and ongoing bickering at work, the chemistry between Liya and Jay is clear to everyone around them. But the headstrong pair will both have to learn to be vulnerable before they can trust each other. Readers will root for Liya as she struggles against community gossip and the weight of disappointing the people who should love her unconditionally. The enemies-to-lovers arc is classic, but the cultural specificity Patel brings makes this rom-com feel fun and fresh. Agent: Katelyn Detweiler, Jill Grinberg Literary Management.

        May 1, 2020
        A biochemical engineer ends up working with the man her parents would like her to marry. Liya Thakkar is happy both professionally and personally. She has a tight-knit group of friends and just accepted a big promotion at work. Unfortunately, her conservative father is still trying to arrange her perfect match--a good Hindu man from a respectable family--even though she never plans to get married. One night, Liya goes to her parents' home for a quiet family dinner and is surprised to find her father has invited a surprise blind date, Jay Shah. Infuriated at her father's meddling, Liya refuses to even meet Jay and sneaks out the back door. But running away from Jay is harder than it looks, as he's been hired to bail her firm out of a daunting legal mess. As they work together to save the company, Liya discovers that the prickly, confrontational demeanor she uses as a shield doesn't work with Jay. Meanwhile, Jay is surprised to find himself impressed with Liya's dedication and hard work. Liya is slow to trust Jay, but their professional relationship slowly evolves to friendship and then to romance. As a teenager, Liya was a victim of sexual assault at the hands of an older, respected member of the community. It makes her fight-or-flight survival strategy easier to understand, but she never moves past these simple coping mechanisms. The book fails to portray a modern world of dating. Early on, a white man expects her "to give it up" after an expensive dinner date, and she is openly shunned by her community for being a sexually active woman in her 20s. There is little nuance in Patel's exploration of gender and dating, which fuels rather than interrogates stereotypes of South Asian culture. Stale, unexamined stereotypes coupled with lack of character growth make for a disappointing romance.

        There is no meet-cute for Liya Thakkar and Jay Shah. A recently promoted biochemical engineer, Liya is shocked when, arriving late to her first managers' meeting, she is castigated by Jay, an attorney who has been retained to keep the company she works for from collapse. Then, when a date goes violently wrong, Liya escapes, but, in a Cinderella-like moment, she breaks the heel off one of her $1,400 Louboutins, twisting her ankle. She finds refuge in a diner, where Jay just so happens to be eating. He comes to her rescue, but then what? In this warm and witty tale of opposites, Patel portrays Jay as a traditional Indian American man very close to his widowed mother and his brother. Brilliant Liya is scorned in their community as a loose woman. Both are attractive and successful, yet deeply scarred by traumas in their youth. Can they find their way to romance? Patel's vivid comedy of conflict and love within an upscale, urban Indian American enclave features endearing protagonists within a circle of friends who all act with integrity and strength.(Reprinted with permission of Booklist, copyright 2020, American Library Association.)

After Liya Thakkar receives a hard-won promotion, she discovers that the company she works for is on the brink of bankruptcy. At the same time, her parents are eager to secure an arranged marriage, but she roundly rejects the prospective groom, Jay Shah. When Shah shows up as the lawyer who might turn the tide for Liya's company, they both discover that working in close quarters may lead to more than the saving of their careers. Nankani shines in her portrayals of the Indian-American community, especially with her authentic accents. With subtle inflections and varying tones, Nankani will wow listeners. A.L.
