ARC Review: Love, Take Two by Saranya Rai

She’s tall, beautiful and one of Bollywood’s leading ladies.
He’s goofy, loves to wear outlandish clothes and is constantly getting into trouble with reporters.
When Vicky Behl and Kritika Vadukut meet on the sets of the period drama Ranjha Ranjha, everyone agrees they have serious chemistry–not just on screen. But after her devastating breakup with Raunak Rajput, Kritika doesn’t know if she can handle being with a Bollywood actor. If only Vicky wasn’t so damn charming . . .
Will the pressure and scrutiny of Bollywood allow them to live happily ever?

Disclaimer: I was provided with a Physical copy of the book by Penguin India in exchange for an honest review. However, all the thoughts, feelings and opinions expressed in this review are my own.

I rarely read Indian rom – Coms, and the only rom – coms I have loved came from Penguin India (Man of her Match by Sakshma Puri Dhariwal), so when a lovely editor at Penguin India pitched the idea of this romance, I just knew I had to give this Bollywood romance a chance – and the fact that it came at a time when I know I would need a lighter reads, just made for quite the karmic connection.

There is insta – love between Kritika and Vicky – two of Bollywood’s sweethearts – and while it is not a hard limit for me, it does tend to take the enjoyment out of the romance for me – a romance that should be all about the firsts; first connection, first kiss, first misunderstandings, first surprises, first fight, and all that jazz. What I definitely appreciated and enjoyed was the lack of unnecessary drama in the plotline – especially considering that the setting of book was in Bollywood; a setting that is known for its drama! 

There are also secondary romances happening; that definitely upped the game and its enjoyment for me (sequels, maybe?) – and now, I am really looking forward to seeing what else Ms. Rai comes up with.

Love, Take Two is the kind of lighthearted romance; cute and definitely cheesy in its execution that you will enjoy while needing a break from the heavy reads we usually end up reading!
