"Everyone tells me to stay away from him. But if only I knew how to resist him…"AnnaLund's rating:
Goa isn’t supposed to be on Damon O'Neil's list of places to stay while working in India. It's merely a substitute for his planned trip to visit his sister in Paris for Christmas and the New Year. His boss had other ideas. He's sent Damon to carry out urgent upgrades to the company's offshore units and Damon can't say no. When Damon encounters an extra-spicy curry, a handsome Indian guy named Virat comes to his rescue. Damon is instantly smitten with his looks, and especially with his cute smile. But Damon soon realizes he is very much out of his league when Virat introduces his new wife. However, there might just be a chance Virat isn’t all he pretends to be …
First I was kinda shell shocked by the foreign feeling and the over-the-top-descriptions and the purple prose and the exaggerated states-of-mind and the insta-love and the cheating and the MISERY and the AWESOME screaming and—
—then I realized that this is Bollywood.
And, by DOG™, it is gloriously so.
It actually takes Bollywood by the hand, and effectively tosses it out the window, hitting it out of the ball park, winning by horse-lengths, and scoring for the team. To use some superlative metaphors and similes and a dash of hyperbole and no commas, quite in the spirit.
I think I screamed with laughter at least six times. I’m not sure that the author meant for me to do this, but nevertheless, this was simply hilarious.
It could use several (more) rounds of editing, but hey, where’s the fun in that?
Simply loved the cheek of this book for even EXISTING. Oh, and the cover is deceptively elegant.
Happy days, man. I laughed till I cried.
I was given a free copy of this book by the author. A positive review was not promised in exchange.
I see that Amazon sells this for $3.74 in my region, which I find a bit pricey for some 70 pages. B&N, Smashwords, AllRomanceEbooks all have it at $2.99.
Thank you for reading, hope you liked this review.
