Ashish Patel didn’t know love could be so…sucky. After he’s dumped by his ex-girlfriend, his mojo goes AWOL. Even worse, his parents are annoyingly, smugly confident they could find him a better match. So, in a moment of weakness, Ash challenges them to set him up.

The Patels insist that Ashish date an Indian-American girl—under contract. Per subclause 1(a), he’ll be taking his date on “fun” excursions like visiting the Hindu temple and his eccentric Gita Auntie. Kill him now. How is this ever going to work?

Sweetie Nair is many things: a formidable track athlete who can outrun most people in California, a loyal friend, a shower-singing champion. Oh, and she’s also fat. To Sweetie’s traditional parents, this last detail is the kiss of death.

Sweetie loves her parents, but she’s so tired of being told she’s lacking because she’s fat. She decides it’s time to kick off the Sassy Sweetie Project, where she’ll show the world (and herself) what she’s really made of.

Ashish and Sweetie both have something to prove. But with each date they realize there’s an unexpected magic growing between them. Can they find their true selves without losing each other? (Goodreads)

There’s Something About Sweetie by Sandhya Menon is definitely one of the books I was most excited to read this spring, and I was thrilled to finally get started on the book! I read When Dimple Met Rishi back when it was released, and I loved it so much, so I couldn’t wait to get started on this new book!

If you read When Dimple Met Rishi, then you probably remember Rishi’s brother, Ashish! There’s Something About Sweetie is all about Ashish, and a brand new character, Sweetie!

There was really SO much that I loved about this book, and one of the main things were the characters! Sweetie is awesome, and is definitely on the list of my top favorite characters. There is so much that I love about Sweetie, including her confidence with herself throughout the whole book, even when her mom constantly nagged her about her weight. She didn’t let this bother her, and I loved her for that. And Sweetie and Ashish together were perfection! I very much enjoyed watching their relationship grow over the course of the book, which made the storyline for this book super cute. I am all about rom-coms at the moment, and this was just what I needed to read!

Overall; If you loved When Dimple Met Rishi, you most definitely need to check out There’s Something About Sweetie! Both of these books are wonderful, and I absolutely can’t wait to read them again, and again, and AGAIN! (Seriously, I love these stories!) I just realized that I still need to read From Twinkle, With Love, also by Sandhya, and I’m even more excited to read it now. If you haven’t yet checked out these books, I definitely recommend that you do so!
