Publisher's Summary

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 defuse 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.

Rich with details of modern Indian American life, here is a warm, sexy, and witty story of love, family, and the difficult choices that arise in the name of both.

    I enjoy mysteries, NOT thrillers, contemporary fiction, especially about diverse cultures, and sometimes history, if it doesn't involve too many dates. I often listen to a book multiple times, discovering unnoticed details in the retelling.

    Story
    "Can't get enough of India, Pakistan, Bollywood...."

    Funny story, good characters, rings very true on many counts.
    A typical love story: struggles with misunderstandings.
    Nevertheless, it's fun to travel along on these journeys, with excellent narration.

    Story
    "Typical romance novel"

    I always like to read a romance novel here and there. The author does a great job in a few of the story lines and then others - a man feverishly in love with a woman that keeps running away - gets a bit stale after hours of listening.

    However! It was a fun listen and the narrator does a phenomenal job of delivering the story from a culture that isn't typically main stream.
