ARC Review

ARC Review: Man of Her Match by Sakshama Puri Dhariwal

Kicked off the team for a series of misdemeanours, Indian cricket’s bad boy Vikram Walia finally has a chance at redemption. The only problem: it involves collaborating with his childhood best friend turned sworn enemy, Nidhi Marwah.

Once a tomboy, now a gorgeous, self-assured marketing professional, Nidhi must put aside her personal dislike of Vikram and leverage his unparalleled fame and poster-boy good looks for her latest campaign.

But the ensuing battle of sardonic jibes and veiled slurs only heightens their blazing chemistry. Soon memories of their past fill their present, pulling them back to that fateful day when a heartless act destroyed their friendship.

Can Vikram and Nidhi put their stormy history behind them? Will their partnership have a second innings?


Disclaimer:A Huge Thanks to Penguin India for providing a review copy of this wonderful book. But the thought, opinions and feelings expressed in the review are entirely my own!

Sakshma was my first ever #authorsigning (TYSM to @penguinindia for that opportunity) – and I fell in love with her almost instantly. Not only is she adorable, she was this cute little human that I wish I could have picked her up and carried her with me home *winks* – in totally a cutesy stalker way, ofcourse 😛   (check out the photo below!!)

please ignore the weird look on my face! 😛

But I had loved LOVED The Wedding Photographer (Read My Review) – and my expectations from her second book were already very high, even before meeting her in person! 😀

In The Wedding Photographer, she gave us the brooding hero Arjun (who still remains my boo!); and a wonderfully sassy heroine, Risha – but here’s the twist in the tale – Man of Her Match is sort of like a prequel to Sakshama’s debut book! You meet Vikram and Aditi in The Wedding Photographer; but they are already an established couple there, so I  was not that curious about them; to be honest, I was more invested in Arjun anyways! 😛

But as usual, Sakshama delivers a romance meant for Indian Hearts! ❤  

Vikram is the bad boy of Cricket (and I do love me some bad boys!) while Nidhi is a good girl, though a little loud mouth! Told in two warring perspectives of past and the present – we see two story arcs coming together flawlessly in this book!

Not only was it so freaking enjoyable to a Delhi girl, you have to know that I fell in love with my city all over again!

Best friends in childhood, now sworn enemies – Vikram and Nidhi have to work together on a campaign; and even though they swear that they hate each other; their past feelings end up coming back to the front, especially when they start working together! 😀

I love reading romances; YAASS! I love me some HEA; but I rarely read romances by Indian authors for somehow they lack the punch. Sakshama is the only author to have broken that barrier – and I think, she has now made it so that I automatically end up buying all of her future books as well! ❤
