Ria Parkar is Bollywood's favorite Ice Princess--beautiful, poised, and scandal-proof--until one impulsive act threatens to expose her destructive past. Traveling home to Chicago for her cousin's wedding offers a chance to diffuse the coming media storm and find solace in family, food, and outsized celebrations that are like one of her vibrant movies come to life. But it also means confronting Vikram Jathar.

Ria and Vikram spent childhood summers together, a world away from Ria's exclusive boarding school in Mumbai. Their friendship grew seamlessly into love--until Ria made a shattering decision. As far as Vikram is concerned, Ria sold her soul for stardom and it's taken him years to rebuild his life. But beneath his pent-up anger, their bond remains unchanged. And now, among those who know her best, Ria may find the courage to face the secrets she's been guarding for everyone else's benefit--and a chance to stop acting and start living.

Rich with details of modern Indian-American life, here is a warm, sexy, and witty story of love, family, and the difficult choices that arise in the name of both.

Ria Parkar is a celebrated Bollywood star, frequently playing the innocent ingenue who ends up the bride. Professionally she's intensely private, revealing very little about herself. When a paparazzi gets an incriminating photo of her looking deranged and as if she's about to jump off a ledge (she w...

5.0 Great Emotional Storytelling and Some Serious Cultural Charm
The Bollywood Bride was a romance filled with lush detail, culture, and the bonds of friendship where we learned firsthand how one woman’s sacrifice changed not only her life, but that of her family and loved ones as well. ‘She was a ticking time bomb and he was angry enough to be her fuse. And tog...

3.5 The Bollywood Bride by Sonali Dev
Dev's A BOLLYWOOD AFFAIR was one of my favorite reads last year. If you look around, you'll find many readers felt the same way. AFFAIR was a delight - light and romantic and strengthened by familial ties and humor. It reminded me a bit of Moonstruck made into a Bollywood love story. You'll see si...

5.0 Dev works her magic yet again
Be still my heart. There is something about Sonali Dev's sumptuous storytelling that makes me want to hoard her stories like precious gems. This book is absolutely as wonderful as her first novel. Ria and Vikram's story is a painful journey complicated by the shadow of mental illness and an extreme ...
