Somewhere to review books I'm reading without giving away any spoilers!

What a tasty treat! – Matched by Masala by Mona Shroff

My Review:

What a special read this turned out to be,
One with romance and tragedy,
Alongside lots of tasty dishes
And fantastic dreams and wishes.

Since teens they've crushed on each other
But he's her best friend's brother
And she's his sister's best friend
So if things went wrong where would it end?

Add in health issues and tragedy, too,
Neither wants to risk their friendships, would you?
However, fate has another surprise
That may help their romance be realised.

A heartwarming read with some difficult issues
So whilst reading it you may need some tissues.
An enjoyable story where everyone else knows
But the couple themselves resist their love that grows.

There are plenty of twist to keep you page turning
And a delightful epilogue to feed your yearning!
For my complementary copy, I say thank you,
As I share with you this, my honest review.

Official book description: 

He cooks for their customers…but he’d rather cater to her heart! One impetuous, slightly drunken kiss has turned up the heat on chef Amar Virani’s feelings for Divya Shah. He’s been in love with the sexy pastry chef—his sister’s best friend!—since they were teenagers, but a painful tragedy in his past keeps Amar from revealing his true emotions. As they work side by side in Divya’s tiny food truck, she realizes there’s more than just business simmering between them. For the first time, she’s tempted to step outside her comfort zone and take a chance on Amar—even if it means risking more than her heart.
