Sonali Dev’s The Bollywood Bride is a beautiful story. I love the story very much and I thoroughly enjoyed reading it from beginning to end. I’m such a sucker for love stories so Ria and Vikram’s story hooked me. Their relationship is very beautiful after all the arguments they had. I know it was very necessary for them to fight before they reconcile but reading about it was very sad. The story was beautifully written. Dev did a great job describing what the characters were feeling. Everything was amazing. I loved reading this book. It flows really well and it’s very engrossing. I’ve been into Bollywood movies lately so I was very interested in reading this book. I highly recommend The Bollywood Bride. It’s a beautiful story about love and family.
Ria is a very famous Bollywood actress. She’s beautiful and successful. She has everything going for her until something threatened to expose her past, so she takes an opportunity to have some time off to return home for her cousin’s wedding. By going back home, this means she must confront Vikram Jathar, her former boyfriend.
Ria Parkar is Bollywood's favorite Ice Princess--beautiful, poised, and scandal-proof--until one impulsive act threatens to expose her destructive past. Traveling home to Chicago for her cousin's wedding offers a chance to diffuse the coming media storm and find solace in family, food, and outsized celebrations that are like one of her vibrant movies come to life. But it also means confronting Vikram Jathar.
Ria and Vikram spent childhood summers together, a world away from Ria's exclusive boarding school in Mumbai. Their friendship grew seamlessly into love--until Ria made a shattering decision. As far as Vikram is concerned, Ria sold her soul for stardom and it's taken him years to rebuild his life. But beneath his pent-up anger, their bond remains unchanged. And now, among those who know her best, Ria may find the courage to face the secrets she's been guarding for everyone else's benefit--and a chance to stop acting and start living.
Rich with details of modern Indian-American life, here is a warm, sexy, and witty story of love, family, and the difficult choices that arise in the name of both.
