Title: Claiming His Bollywood Cinderella

Author: Tara Pammi

Publisher: Harlequin – Romance (U.S. and Canada), Harlequin Presents

 

My Review:

This story takes readers into the heart of Bollywood, complete with a family film dynasty, the leading man and an unexpected romance.

He is Vikram Raawal, a billionaire movie star who has been instrumental in saving the company his grandfather started and his parents’ almost bankrupted. He’s been focussed on his career and ensuring his grandmother and younger siblings are safe despite their parents. When he goes to visit his grandmother, he’s shocked by the outspoken young lady there, acting out a scene he’s less than proud of participating in. Naina Menon is shocked to meet her teen crush but her first impression of Vikram isn’t exactly favourable. Still, a close encounter at a party proves memorable for them both. However, the differences in their circumstances make her feel unworthy, though the sparks fly between them. Is there any chance for them to have a Cinderella style romance?

This is a hot and spicy romance with a decidedly Indian twist and a heartwarming finale. It is a modern day fairy tale retelling and a quick, easy and enjoyable read packed with the appropriate glitz and glamour of the Bollywood elite. I liked that Naina is not your typical Cinderella as she is highly educated, feisty and resourceful. She is prepared to stand up for herself and lets others know what she thinks of their actions, even Vikram! I suspect this actually makes it a much better read!

My thanks to Harlequin and NetGalley for my copy of this book which I have voluntarily read and honestly reviewed.
