Love, Marriage, and Other Disasters by Shilpa Suraj

Genre: Romance

Book heat level (based on movie ratings): R

She believes in love, family and…squiggles!

Alisha Rana is not your typical single desi girl. For one, she is on the wrong side of 30. For another, she is divorced. And last but definitely not least, she is still, gasp, a virgin!

Alisha doesn’t want much. But what she does want is that elusive thing all women search for – A man who gets her…but a man who gets her hot! She calls it “feeling the squiggle.”

Enter Dr. Vivaan Kapoor, cute, hot, squiggle worthy. The younger brother of her cousin’s prospective groom, he’s got the squiggle factor in spades. The only catch? He’s never been married and is years younger than Alisha. Basically, completely off-limits.

And then there is Arjun. Widowed, older than her by the right number of years and a genuinely nice guy. He’s Vivaan’s cousin and a so-called perfect match for Alisha. The problem is Alisha’s squiggle-o-meter refuses to budge for him.

What will Alisha choose? A lifetime together with the ‘right’ man or a chance at happiness with the ‘wrong’ one?

What’s your favorite down-home family style meal?

I’m Indian and my favourite family meal and comfort food is homemade chicken biryani.

What is your go-to meal when you dine out?

I enjoy continental food and my go-to meal when I dine out is a chicken steak with mashed potatoes.

Who is your “book boyfriend” (that hottie you read about and drool over)?

Kaleb Krychek from Heart of Obsidian.

Describe the perfect vacation.

Lazing by the pool with a good book in any hotel anywhere in the world.

When you read for pleasure, what kind of books do you choose?

Romance. Always romance. I enjoy lighter reads like chicklits and humour but romance is always my first choice.
