In this witty and heartfelt rom-com debut for fans of Jasmine Guillory, Emily Henry, and Tessa Bailey, an Indian American woman signs herself and her boyfriend up for a matchmaking site to prove they're a perfect match, only to be paired with her ex instead. High school sweethearts Rita Chitniss and Milan Rao were the golden couple, until the day he broke her heart. Now, six years later, Rita has turned her passion for furniture restoration into a career and has an almost-perfect boyfriend, Neil. The last thing she needs is for Milan to re-enter her life, but that's exactly what happens when her mother, an unfailing believer in second chances, sets them up. Milan is just as charming, cocky, and confident as he was back in school. Only this time, he actually needs her business expertise, not her heart, to flip a hard-to-sell house for his realty agency. While Rita begrudgingly agrees to help, she's not taking any risks. To prove she's definitely over him, she signs herself and Neil up on MyShaadi.com, a Desi matchmaking site famous for its success stories and trustworthy enough to convince everyone that she and Neil are the new and improved couple. Instead, she's shocked when MyShaadi's perfect match for her isn't Neil...it's Milan. Ignoring the website and her mother is one thing, but ignoring Milan proves much more difficult, especially when she promises to help him renovate the beach house of her dreams. And as the two of them dive deeper into workand their pastsRita begins to wonder if maybe her match wasn't so wrong after all....

we love Desi rep in a romance, not sure I know of many others. this second chance romance was more slow burn than I anticipated but the characters were sweet, the growth was set to a more realistic timeline and one of the MC‘s forcing them to actually talk things out and not just yell at each other once and all problems solved. definitely enjoyed.

More twists than I was expecting, but all good surprises! I like Asian (and S.E. Asian) stories, but I super enjoy when they don‘t hit you over the head with their Asian-ness and this was a just right. The story was fun and reasonably light hearted!
