Book Review: If I Say Yes by @NehaYazmin #diverse #romance

I met Neha on Twitter a couple of months ago and decided to give this sweet romance a chance when it was free on Amazon.

if i say yes book cover

“You know the story where the girl-next-door-type is getting married to a jerk – and she’s only marrying him because she’s given up on finding Mr. Right – only for the man of her dreams to walk into her life days before the wedding?

This is not that story.

How about the story where the girl is engaged to the nicest guy in the world, but the appearance of a mysterious hunk rocks her world off its axis and makes her wonder if she should select sexy instead of sweet?

This isn’t that story, either.

My story does however, include a man I’m going to marry and a man that…

You’ll find out soon enough…”

An unexpected marriage proposal, the perfect fiancé and engagement party, and Shell is about to embark on a new chapter of her life. But as she prepares for her happy ever after, she discovers that there are people trying to sabotage her pending nuptials.

She just didn’t think one of them might be a stalker she never knew she had, and another to come in the form of Sebastian Lowe, her fiancé’s best friend! Seb thinks he’s saving his childhood friend from marrying the wrong girl and will stop at nothing to get his way.

But as unforeseen circumstances force Shell and Seb to work together, will she be able to prove to him that he’s wrong about her? Or will Seb succeed in splitting the bride and groom apart forever?

Set in contemporary London, If I Say Yes (Love & Alternatives, Book 1) is a light-hearted romance that’s perfect for readers of chick-lit and novels about weddings, wedding crashers and secret fiancés. 

See it on Goodreads.

My Review

Shell is an easy-to-relate-to young woman and I found her blossoming relationship with Imran quite sweet.

I found the culture immersive and very interesting.

Seb… Sigh. I totally get his opinions about contrast, laughter and attraction. And, yeah, he’s awesome.

I liked how the story was told from Shell, Imran and Seb’s various POV – it gave depth to the story that a single POV would only have hinted at.

So much fun to read! I especially liked the drama surrounding someone trying to break up the happy couple and how that led to the tantalising bit from the beginning…

Poor Shell being stuck between these two!

Now I need to read book 2 to get some closure… can’t wait for it to come out in 2021.

A page-turning sweet romance.
