Publisher's Summary

A delightful romantic comedy featuring a Muslim woman who fakes an engagement to the boy next door in the hopes of winning a couples cooking contest.

When it comes to bread, Reena Manji knows exactly what she's doing. She treats her sourdough starters like (somewhat unruly) children. But when it comes to Reena's actual family - and their constant meddling in her life - well, that recipe always ends in disaster. 

Now Reena's parents have found her yet another potential Good Muslim Husband. This one has the body of Captain America, a delicious British accent, and lives right across the hall. He's the perfect, mouthwatering temptation...and completely ruined by the unwelcome side dish of parental interference. 

Reena refuses to marry anyone who works for her father. She won't be attracted to Nadim's sweet charm or gorgeous lopsided smile. That is, until the baking opportunity of a lifetime presents itself: a couples' cooking competition with the prize of her dreams. Reena will do anything to win - even asking Nadim to pretend they're engaged. But when it comes to love, baking your bread doesn't always mean you get to eat it too.

Loved it!

This is my first book by this author and I was so impressed with how witty and funny this romcom was!!! The heroine was super relatable and the hero was irresistibly charming. I loved the diverse intersectionalities of their backgrounds. They were both East African Indians and he had this sexy English accent due to going to private schools in England. I've never read Asian narratives where their "home" country wasn't in the country of their true heritage so that was cool and different!

Nadim was one of my favorite heroes in 2021. And Reena was so darn hilarious with the bread naming. At first I thought she was talking about animals but this woman named HER BREAD! How funny is that? The two had great chemistry and fake engagement is my fave so I loved seeing that play out.

I think the only thing that disappointed me was the lack of steamy love scenes. They were very much fade to black and I need my sexy times on the steamy-erotic side! I mean why give the man a foot fetish if you weren't going to do anything interesting with it >:) It was a waste of a kink! And oh considering both characters were both Muslim, I was slightly uncomfortable with all the drinking they did. I'm not sure I'd call this a true Muslim romance since people of the faith I'm sure were uncomfortable with that too. I know Muslims are not a monolith but sometimes I thought it was doing too much to show how un-Muslim and western they could be.

Overall, I did love it! I look forward to her next romance!
