    I thoroughly enjoyed this book

    Beauty and the beast with a Bollywood twist? Obviously I loved this one! It had a bit of a slow start, but those parts set up such a great subplot for Taj's brother Ashraf that I don't mind at all. Threads of that subplot definitely started in the previous book, but I think those pieces were very tangential, I picked up on what was needed for this book right away. Anyway, this was a really good balance of angst and common sense, as in no one was angsting unnecessarily or to a point where they were just being a drama queen, there was just a lot of emotions and tragic events to make all the angst very sympathetic, if that makes sense. The setting was great and I thought the characters were built up nicely and balanced each other out well. The ending was teensy bit rushed for my taste and I hope to see (spoiler???) an Ashraf/Kamal sequel, or at least a short story, just because I really think they have more to work out and I need to get inside Kamal's head, stat. But, rushed ending aside, I thoroughly enjoyed this book.

    Not for me - angsty, melodramatic, and rough

    This book was rough and I just didn't like it. It seemed to go from point A to outer space in 3 sentences. Here's an example of the rough ride this book takes you: she's an Indian American actress trying to break into Bollywood, staying at his family's house. He’s a rude, insulting former Bollywood actor who is now in a wheelchair. They are actually having a nice moment, lightly flirting. The she decides to “play the seductress”, kneels in front of him, runs her hands over his legs, up his zipper, and suggests sex. Except it reads like she's taunting him. And when did it become ok to touch like that? He really didn't invite it and he's hinted that he's not worthy of her. This book is so angsty, takes everything seriously and ratchets up the intensity. I know nothing about Bollywood, haven't seen a movie, so maybe this is part of the style/genre of Bollywood. But that doesn't work for me and was really off putting. If this wasn't a square for my bingo card I wouldn't have finished it.
