Publisher's Summary

Romance, dating, sex and - Muslim women? In this groundbreaking collection, 25 American Muslim writers sweep aside stereotypes to share their search for love openly for the first time, showing just how varied the search for love can be - from singles' events and online dating, to college flirtations and arranged marriages, all with a uniquely Muslim twist.

These stories are filled with passion and hope, loss and longing: A quintessential blonde California girl travels abroad to escape suffocating responsibilities at home, only to fall in love with a handsome Brazilian stranger she may never see again. An orthodox African-American woman must face her growing attraction to her female friend. A young girl defies her South Asian parents' cultural expectations with an interracial relationship. And a Southern woman agrees to consider an arranged marriage, with surprising results.

These compelling stories of love and romance create an irresistible balance of heart-warming and tantalizing, always revealing and deeply relatable.

Sex, Love, & Feminism, in the Muslim Women's World

Romance, dating, sex, and—Muslim women talking for themselves! Talk about taboos broken and stereotypes torpedoed.

This book has made a huge impression everywhere it's been discussed-- and there's not a book critic in America who hasn't weighed in. The title sounds titillating, but these real-life stories are frank, earnest, and real.

Nura Maznavi and Ayesha Mattu made fantastic selections, there's not one repitition or predictable exposition.

Being a Latina Muslim myself this book was able to Show me that we as women go through so much .. we all have different dreams and views even though our goals is to make Allah happy PBUH. It’s very real and I love the fact that every girl on the book had a real story that we all can relate.
