Ria Parkar is Bollywood's favorite Ice Princess--beautiful, poised, and scandal-proof--until one impulsive act threatens to expose her destructive past. Traveling home to Chicago for her cousin's wedding offers a chance to diffuse the coming media storm and find solace in family, food, and outsized celebrations that are like one of her vibrant movies come to life. But it also means confronting Vikram Jathar. Ria and Vikram spent childhood summers together, a world away from Ria's exclusive boarding school in Mumbai. Their friendship grew seamlessly into love--until Ria made a shattering decision. As far as Vikram is concerned, Ria sold her soul for stardom and it's taken him years to rebuild his life. But beneath his pent-up anger, their bond remains unchanged. And now, among those who know her best, Ria may find the courage to face the secrets she's been guarding for everyone else's benefit--and a chance to stop acting and start living.… (lisätietoja)

Okay, so we all know that romance is not my cuppa. That's my disclaimer going in, and if there are nuances of the genre that I criticize without fair cause, do let me know.

That said, there were some interesting mysteries with a lotta OOF moments mixed in. There are parts Persuasion mixed in with Jane Eyre, which is...fascinating. Also, there are so many emotions and drama and POOR COMMUNICATION that I had to go to my Narnia Happy Place and just pretend I wasn't extremely irritated with the overwroughtness of certain emotional nonconfrontations. Also, the HOW of Ria's getting into film was not fleshed out as well as I would have liked. I know the mystery is not supposed to be the focus, but I found the romance a lot less interesting than the other aspects that Dev introduced. ( )

If you enjoyed or didn't enjoy Dev's other book, The Bollywood Bride, you'll likely feel the same about this one. These two Bollywood books are high on drama, with a decent amount of sexual tensions, some pretty steamy sex scenes, and cookie-cutter protagonists.

Ria and Vikram were lovers when they were younger, but hadn't seen each other for 10 years when Ria returns to her family's home for her cousin's wedding. Drama and sexual tension ensues. While Ria and Vikram haven't seen or spoken to each other in a decade, they apparently remember every waking moment they spent together when they were younger and as the reader, we have to live through it. They also, apparently, haven't experienced even the slightest wane in their burning desire for one another, despite the long years of no contact and the dramatic events that tore them apart. I wasn't really, buying it, but I just told myself to think of it as a soap opera. Also, at one point, Ria apparently jogged for 3 hours and she's never trained for a marathon or anything, so I found that really unbelievable too.

I'm a fan of some of Dev's other works, but these Bollywood novels didn't do it for me. They were entertaining enough not to DNF, but the drama and emotions were too over the top for my tastes. If this is something you really enjoy in your romances, then these might be for you. ( )

The Bollywood Bride by Sonali Dev

Bollywood book 2. Contemporary romance. Can be read as a stand-alone.
Ria and Vikram were childhood friends that eventually became lovers but she left to pursue a movie career. Ria is back in Chicago for her cousin’s wedding and old feelings can’t be ignored.

Of course, there are a lot of background secrets and concerns between the two. The first time around, ok, she was young and was trying to protect him from hurt. But her continued refusal to tell him the past secrets was frustrating and made them both miserable.
It is a romance so I can say without spoilers that eventually everything is revealed and resolved.

I liked the hero for his honorable actions over and over.
The story is filled with many Indian-American customs and family dynamics.
Romantic and emotional. ( )

Well, I read it in one evening! ( )

I found that I related to Ria more than many characters I have read recently. The journey in getting to know these characters through the book was more intense than previous romances that I have read recently. Think I found a new favorite author!
