Claiming His Bollywood Cinderella Tara Pammi 5* #Review @TaraPammi @MillsandBoon #MillsandBoonModern #Bollywood #Romance #Masquerade #MillsandBoonInsiders #BookReview #BornintoBollywood #ClaimingHisBollywoodCinderella

The hottest actor in Bollywood, Vikram Raina has found love countless times – when he’s playing a role. In real life, he’s given up on finding a soul-deep connection and prefers to focus entirely on his career. Until at a masquerade ball, one woman leaves him craving more…

Naina Menon’s first impression of drop-dead gorgeous Vikram left much to be desired. But then one heart-stopping night showed her there’s so much more to him than his celebrity persona.

I received a copy of this book from Mills and Boon via NetGalley in return for an honest review.

My Thoughts…

The masquerade ball engaged me from the start, the romance and the secrets the perfect foil for this modern-day Cinderella romance.

Naina may be struggling financially, but she’s self-reliant and knows what she wants, as Vikram finds out. First in a verbal sparring match and then in an unexpected passionate encounter. Vikram, the modern-day prince, in this story is left playing catch-up after every encounter with Naina despite his player status and wealth. The characters are full of angst and conflict, but they are easy to like, and you want them to get their chance of happiness.

Partly, set in an idyllic island location this romance overcomes the inevitable conflicts to give the couple a fairytale ending. I am looking forward to reading the next book in the series.

My Thoughts...

This story will appeal to those who like lots of medical detail in their medical romance. A standalone book in the Royal Christmas at Seattle General series, Dr Dom Di Rossi is the chief ER consultant at Seattle General with a secret which allows him to pursue his medical vocation. An unexpected patient in his ER threatens his secret life. Dr Emilia Featherstone is a long time rival of the ER chief they have mutual respect, but nothing more until she senses he is hiding something.

The romance between Dom and Emilia is slow, built out of mutual respect which accepts the secrets they both have. The medical ethos is well written, but at times the medical moments obscure the romantic ones.

This is Grey’s Anatomy style romance with likeable characters and a positive ending. There are three other books in this series written by different authors.
