Representation: Indian main character, Indian love interest

Indian Matchmaking meets Date Night in this fun, romantic adventure in which a match-made couple about to be engaged gets caught up in a caper that puts their future—and lives—in danger.

At thirty-five, with a stable job as an accountant, Mira Chaudhary wants nothing more than to find a boring man to spend the rest of her life with. Having had enough excitement in her younger days and desperately trying to escape her dysfunctional past, she turns to a matching app specializing in Indian American singles to help her find someone to settle down with.

Enter Naveen Desai. An English professor with an uneventful, normal, and—dare she say it, boring—life, Naveen is perfect.

But just when things are going well, Mira receives news that her aunt has died. Suddenly a trip to Las Vegas to settle her aunt’s affairs turns into a mad dash to escape kidnappers, evade art thieves, and consorting with hackers who can decipher just what it was Mira’s aunt was involved with. Mira just hopes that Naveen isn’t chased away by the very same life of “excitement” that she’s been trying to get away from. But maybe, over the course of one wild night, Mira and Naveen will find the love connection that neither expected.

This was such a good book and such a fun one to read! I loved all the twists and turns that happened and seeing the little clues to lead you to where the ending was. I thought it was a really well done romance and thriller that kept me on the edge of my seat.

I was entertained by this one way more than I anticipated! I thought Mira and Naveen were great as main characters, as well as ex-lovers, and that added so much to the mix. I am glad we had both POVs since there were definitely great moments for each of them to think about the other and the situation at hand.

If you are looking for a action-packed romance, this is the book for you!
