Emma gets a fresh Indian-American twist from award-winning author Sonali Dev in her heartwarmingly irresistible Jane Austen inspired rom com series. No one can call Vansh Raje’s life anything but charmed. Handsome—Vogue has declared him California’s hottest single—and rich enough to spend all his time on missions to make the world a better place. Add to that a doting family and a contagiously sunny disposition and Vansh has made it halfway through his twenties without ever facing anything to throw him off his admittedly spectacular game.

A couple years from turning forty, Knightlina (Naina) Kohli has just gotten out of a ten-year-long fake relationship with Vansh’s brother and wants only one thing from her life…fine, two things. One, to have nothing to do with the unfairly blessed Raje family ever again. Two, to bring economic independence to millions of women in South Asia through her microfinance foundation and prove her father wrong about, well, everything.

Just when Naina’s dream is about to come to fruition, Vansh Raje shows up with his misguided Emma Project… And suddenly she’s fighting him for funding and wondering if a friends-with-benefits arrangement that’s as toe-curlingly hot as it is fun is worth risking her life’s work for.

My Review

This is the fourth and final book in the series and I’ve actually read the third one, but it isn’t necessary. The series has the same cast of characters but focuses on a different couple each time with a bonus secondary story in this book. The basis is a retelling of a Jane Austen book and this one is Emma’s retelling (hence the name) with a gender swap. Nice touch if you ask me.

I always enjoy a book that brings a different to me culture to the story. We have enemies to lovers and opposite personalities coming together. This was a little steamier than the other book I read and I enjoyed that. It does justice to the Emma characters if you are a fan, but stands on its own if you haven’t read it.

I think it’s a solid summer romance to add to your tbr.
