This was such a fun love triangle romance. Don’t be put off by “love triangle” if that’s usually not your thing, because it’s not Zahra’s thing either!
Zahra, a Bengali princess living in Jersey, is trying to earn money so that she can take writing classes, as she wants to be a writer, but her mother is convinced she just needs a good love match.
Her mother and the auntie network plan and scheme to set Zahra up with Harun, a wealthy, nerdy, but very cute boy. But Zahra finds herself falling for Nayim, the new dishwasher at the tea shop she works at.
Harun and her devise a plan to convince everyone that they aren’t a good match, which includes fake dating. As the two spend time together though, her feelings get very mixed up as to which boy her heart desires.
I loved the descriptions of the Bengali community, family, and culture woven into the narrative. This is a clean, sweet, romance that hits on being true to yourself and not rushing into love.
