MY REVIEW:Twenty-four-year-old Priya is a proper Indian woman, working as a doctor and whose parents arrange her marriage to a dentist. Except that she meets a hot musician, who happens to live two doors down in her apartment building and who she met in the ER when he hurt his ankle. Tyler is thrilled that the neighbor he has his eyes on turns out to be his ER doctor. But Priya doesn't want anything to do with the hot musician next door. I thought this book was cleverly written and fast paced. I liked Priya a lot. She is very cranky and snappish towards Tyler but he likes and pursues her anyway. This is a culture that I don't know a whole lot about outside of Bollywood and Slumdog Millionaire. An arranged marriage is a foreign concept to me. Priya wants to make her parents happy even if it means she would be unhappy. I loved that Priya is so laid back and normal. She talks about peeing and farting. Which made me laugh out loud. I also loved that she is nerdy. My favorite line: “I have three goals in life: work in private practice, bring plaid back, and dominate San Diego Comic-Con.” I enjoyed this book a lot. And where can I get a hot, astrophysicist, musician? I thought this was a very sweet romance. I am interested in reading more books by this author. 5 stars.
Praise for PRIYA IN HEELS:
Priyanka Patel is the epitome of an obedient daughter. She’s finishing up her medical residency at one of Houston’s busiest emergency departments, and has agreed—albeit reluctantly—to marry the man her family has chosen for her. The only thing that can derail the “perfect” life laid out before her is the sexy musician down the hall who wants into her life…and into her bed.
Tyler O’Connor has been infatuated with Priya since she treated his sprained ankle in the ER, and after saving her from a brutal attack, he can't get her out of his head. When Priya puts her family's wishes before their relationship, agreeing to an arranged marriage with another man, Tyler is devastated.
But love is fierce and unreasonable and clashes with the carefully sculpted life her parents want for her. Is going after her heart such a big deal, or will it truly unravel Priya’s world?
