Q: Do you have a bucket list?
I don’t have one written down but I have done a lot of things I wanted to do. My list would be places to visit mostly!
Love, Chai and Other Four-Letter Words
Happy Pub Week – Out Now!
Kiran Mathur has traveled from India to the US for college and a successful job and be the dutiful daughter. She does everything she is told but when a new neighbor gets locked out and looks as lost as she felt she invites him in. And so starts a whirlwind courtship that can never be or can it.
She has a bucket list that she is tasked by her friends to finish and Nash her neighbor, starts ticking them off with her. Nash a transplant from a different state with his own list.
I find it sad that Nash had never tasted Indian food before he met Kiran. Omg we love Indian food! I think I drooled all over when they listed what she brought to their date for him to try. Can I just have paneer in everything? I am a cheese all day person. I will eat it any way it is served, give it to me! We have food trucks that park in front of our building every Friday and the Samosa truck is so good! #california
This was a friends to lovers, closed room, delightful bucket list romance mixed in with some heavy familial struggles and oppositions.
Definitely enjoyed this one! I want to visit NY again!!

A charming NYC romance by co-host of the Woke Desi, for fans of:
• multicultural connections
• strong friendships and families
• a “will they/won’t they” story with powerful stakes
• the city that never sleeps
• bucket list adventures
• characters who fight outside expectations and pressures to build the life they want
Kiran needs to fall in line. Instead, she falls in love.
Kiran was the good daughter. When her sister disobeyed her family’s plan and brought them shame, she was there to pick up the pieces. She vowed she wouldn’t make the same mistakes. She’d be twice the daughter her parents needed, to make up for the one they lost.
Nash never had a family. The parents who were supposed to raise him were completely absent. Now as a psychologist, he sees the same pattern happening to the kids he works with. So he turns away from love and family. After all, abandonment is in his genes, isn’t it?
If she follows the rules, Kiran will marry an Indian man. If he follows his fears, Nash will wind up alone. But what if they follow their hearts?
