Tariq needs a break from his Bollywood career, while Kiera is bored by her humdrum life and dead end romance. Can they find their escape in each other?
A brief but powerful encounter with a beautiful stranger provides a rare moment of unadulterated pleasure for Tariq Salman, Bollywood superstar. He returns to Mumbai but can't forget the spirited young woman in her little silver car who saved him from a horde of screaming fans in the heart of London.
Doggie fashion designer Kiera Hamilton is swept off her feet by the stunningly handsome actor who crashes into her life, and has no way of knowing that their meeting will eventually turn her life upside down. She declines his dinner invitation and drives away before she forgets her common sense—and the fact she has a boyfriend waiting at home.
They meet again a year later on an idyllic beach in Goa, when Tariq takes a break from the career that no longer satisfies him and a newly single Kiera is Chief Bridesmaid at her sister's wedding. This time, there is nothing to stop them from exploring the insane chemistry between them, and the moment they touch each other, their feelings intensify.
But Kiera's ex-boyfriend has other ideas and turns up uninvited to attend the nuptials, and she finds herself in a terrifying battle to escape him and get back to the man with whom she is falling in love. But her past isn't the only obstacle coming between them, and Tariq and Kiera struggle to find the common ground in their cultures, their lives and their willingness to trust each other.
Funny, sexy and sweet... this book was a little morsel of yummy. From the very funny start when this couple first meets to their sweet reunion, Tariq and Kiera just fit. There's no incredibly unbelievable falling love but rather a gradual feeling of connection. I liked this author's take on bringing two people together. Both main characters were well-developed and highly likable. The quirkiness and originality even in the tiniest aspects of the book made it a standout for me. Loved it.
