[Book 2 in the "Year of the Chick" series]
What's a girl to do when she meets the Internet man of her dreams, he's better than she expected, but he lives an ocean away? And let's not forget her parents,who are trying to lock her up in arranged-marriage doom...
In this fast-paced story of culture clash and romantic pursuits, there's a big fat Indian wedding, the struggle to keep a long-distance flame alive, and an unexpected mystery man who could set a new course in motion.
All the while, our heroine abandons what was once an all-consuming man-search, which helps her remember the person she used to be, and the person she hopes to become; the history-loving nerd, the hopeless romantic, and the emerging author with dreams of ditching the corporate rat race.
This is the book of living in the moment, making the grand gesture, and putting it all on the line. This is when Romi Narindra comes alive...

Outstanding book. Romi is such an easy character to relate to, with her fair share of good and bad decisions, and this book was just perfect with all the awkward, funny, romantic life moments. Can't wait for the next book!:D
I read both books in less than three days! I absolutely enjoyed every word. You are an amazing writer and I can't wait for book 3. Looking forward to Paris and anticipating James, Erik or some hot Parisian.
Enjoyed this book very much-bought it after reading the free prequel "Year of the Chick" on Wattpad. I don't want to insult the author because I know this is semi autobiographical but... The narrator is so frustrating sometimes. Falling in love with random, just slightly out of reach boys and falling apart everywhere when it doesn't work. You kind of want to slap her out of it sometimes- but I consider that a credit to the author if you care enough about imperfect protagonist that you want to smack her a little when she's being dumb or unreasonable. It doesn't feel like a "Mary-sue" because Romi's insecurities and flaws are right out there for everyone to see, and she owns them. That said, I feel that she grew up a lot in this book and it is much more enjoyable to read her private thoughts. Also the boy(man) in question is much more like-able in this story. This is an interesting take and inside view on the Indian-Canadian life and arranged marriage, not to mention the sort of meta-plotline about her writing a semi-successful book. As far as romance lit novels go, this was a nice, light hearted book that was entertaining and didn't make you think too much.
