I have been begging for this story ever since we got a glimpse of Raj and Nayna in the previous book (which you don’t need to read before this.) I loved that Raj was exactly what Nayna was looking for and he knew that he wanted Nayna. He had a fight on his hands but made a plan to win her over and actually listened to what she wanted for her future. He didn’t try to make her change her plans, he was supportive the whole time they dated. He will make you swoon so hard. When Nayna began to realize what Raj was doing by working his way into her life, it was both hilarious and heartwarming watching her fight the attraction. Once she gave in, I loved what a united front they were against their meddling families. I loved how low drama the story was, Nayna and Raj both knew when the villain of the story was trying to ruin the HEA and they fought for each other. Also, I loved how Nalini wove in the Indian culture to this story, and if you’ve ever seen a Bollywood film or scene, you’ll be laughing at some of the scenes in this story.

The next time Raj broke the kiss, he moved his hand back up to her breast, squeezing and petting it while he held her gaze. "I like how tight and firm you are," he murmured. "Like biting into a just-ripe peach."

His body was so hot and hard against her own, and he was so overwhelmingly big and strong. As for his mouth --serious, intense Raj knew exactly how to use his mouth to make her embarrassingly wet.

"I want to keep you forever." With those words, she sealed the break in his heart, made it stronger than new. That was the only thing he'd ever needed from her.

From The Publisher


New York Times bestselling author Nalini Singh continues her Hard Play series with a sweet, sexy romance featuring big, fat, OTT weddings, a meddling grandma, and a too-serious hero who needs to be unbuttoned…

Nayna Sharma agreed to an arranged marriage in the hope it would heal the fractures in her beloved family… only to realize too late that a traditional marriage is her personal nightmare. Panicked, she throws caution to the winds, puts on the tiniest dress she can find, and ends up in the arms of a tall, rough-edged hunk of a man who has abs of steel—and who she manages to mortally insult between one kiss and the next.

Abandoned as a child, then adopted into a loving family, Raj Sen believes in tradition, in continuity. Some might call him stiff and old-fashioned, but he knows what he wants—and it’s a life defined by rules… yet he can’t stop thinking about the infuriating and sexy woman who kissed him in the moonlight then disappeared. When his parents spring an introduction on him, the last woman he expects is her. Beautiful. Maddening. A rule breaker in the making.

He’s all wrong for her. She’s all wrong for him. And love is about to make rebels of them both.

Hard Play Series

My first foray into the Romance genre came my freshman year in high school English, where the teacher had us all read books from several different genres. So, my first book boyfriend and PnR introduction, if you will, was Richard Merlin, from The Wizard of Seattle. Prior to that, I’d only read Fantasy or Sci-fi, with a little teen horror thrown in for angst. I was reading The Vampire Diaries decades before it was even a twinkle in the eyes of the producers. Now, I am addicted to PnR, always reading at least one book a week about vamps, wolves, angels, demons, Fae, or overall magic.
