Fiction Friday: Book Review- Love at First Fight (Dimple and Rishi #2. 5) by Sandhya Menon

Love at First Fight (Dimple and Rishi, #2.5)

Love at First Fight by Sandhya Menon

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

“Love at First Fight” sets the scene for a romance between Pinky Kumar and Samir Jha. However I was just in it to see my favorites, Rishi, Dimple, Ashish and Sweetie. It is so cute how Ashish is STILL so smitten with Sweetie.
“Love at First Fight” follows the group as they tackle an escape room for Valentine’s Day. Of course the couples are together, leaving Pinky and Samir on their own team.
I actually cannot stand Samir. He seems like a totally dweeb. However I also hated Rishi at first read and he grew on me eventually so I am willing to give the other weird boy a chance.
I thought the whole set-up of the couples were kinda predictable but I really liked seeing these characters again.
Sweetie is sweet. Ashish is madly in love, Dimple is still raging against her mother’s anti feminist ways and Rishi is still superstitious and believing in Fate (Seriously, HOW are these two together?)
This was a quick read that I devored. Personally I don’t think you need to read this before reading “10 Things I Hate About Pinky” but it’s a great chance to see the characters from the previous books.

Fiction Friday: Book Review- There’s Something About Sweetie by Sandhya Menon

There's Something About Sweetie

There’s Something About Sweetie by Sandhya Menon

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

When smooth and suave Ashish Patel is dumped by his hot long distance girlfriend, his self-confidence and basketball skills take a nosedive. Previously so popular with the ladies, Ashish is now self-conscious and a mess.
His parents assure him it is just a part of being young and when the times come, they will find him someone better. So Ashish challenges them to do it now- find a girl that will interest him AND meet all of his parent’s strict requirements.
So they do. They match him with Sweetie Nair, an Indian-American athlete who is fat. Sweetie doesn’t mind that she is fat. Neither does Ashish.
However her mother can barely seem to look past that fact so Sweetie decides that she is going to show her that she is more than her weight.
But as Ashish and Sweetie start to spend time together they eventually find that there is a connection between the two of them.
This was a sweet read that I adored immensely. Sweetie and Ashish were a great match (at this point, as an Indian, I’m convinced I should enlist my family members to find me a match) and I was surprised that they suited so well.
I highly recommend this to anyone who wants a light YA read.

Sweetie loves her parents, but she’s so tired of being told she’s lacking because she’s fat. She decides it’s time to kick off the Sassy Sweetie Project, where she’ll show the world (and herself) what she’s really made of.

Ashish and Sweetie both have something to prove. But with each date they realize there’s an unexpected magic growing between them. Can they find their true selves without losing each other
