***REVIEW*** Bollywood Fiance for a Day by Ruchi Vasudeva

Bollywood Fiance for a Day by Ruchi Vasudeva

The man of her Bollywood dreams

Winning the chance to meet the ultimate Bollywood heart-throb, Zaheer Saxena, is just what Vishakha needs to take her mind off her recent humiliation—being jilted the week before her wedding! And when gorgeous Zaheer offers to be her fake fiancĂ©, the chance to save face with her family is just too tempting…

It’s a deal that benefits them both—Zaheer is warding off any unwanted female attention until his next film is finished—but can Vishakha trust herself not to hope that her dream fiancĂ© for a day will be her forever man?

I received copy of this from the author via a friend of hers. I decided to read this one as it is one of the monthly choices on a reading challenge I'm taking part in, (Around the World in 80 Books hosted by Love Bites and Silk). I think this is the first Mills and Boons I've read, so  I was looking forward to it.

I actually enjoyed it. It was a sweet read. I'm not sure whether I've read any books based in India before, so this was an experience for me. I kept stopping to Google things in the book! But it taught me different things about the Indian culture, and I learnt what their different item of clothing are called :)

Ok, the story was really sweet. I really liked Vishakha, she seemed a really nice person. She was jilted just before her wedding when her fiance left her for... her sister!!!! Yeah right would I still go to the wedding?!!! Well, Vishakha did, but with a Hollywood beauty on her arm! After entering and winning a competition for a date with Hollywood heart-throb Zaheer, things go from 0-60, with them both  deciding that pretending to be engaged would be good for them. For Zaheer it would get Mia off his back, and for Vishakha it would show her family she had no problem being at her sister and ex-fiances wedding day. 

Can things stay that platonic? Well lets just say with charms like Zaheer's, I'd have a hard time keeping my hands off him!!!

Sorry about the Capatcha! I hate it too, but too much spam lately!
