Review: When Dimple Met Rishi by Sandhya Menon

Meet Dimple.
Her main aim in life is to escape her traditional parents, get to university and begin her plan for tech world domination.
Meet Rishi.
He's rich, good-looking and a hopeless romantic. His parents think Dimple is the perfect match for him, but she's got other plans...
Dimple and Rishi may think they have each other figured out. But when opposites clash, love works hard to prove itself in the most unexpected ways.

Review: Well this read was everything I hoped it would be and more! I thought this was going to be a cute story about two young people under pressure from their parents to be and behave a certain way. In many ways it was, but it was so much more than that and this will definitely be a book that I recommend to people again and again. This book has it all, hopeless romance, people who have and want to get a good education and a strong female lead who knows her own mind and isn't afraid to go for it, not matter what. 

I loved these two characters and the fact that this book is a dual narrative made me get into their heads and identify with theme even more. I actually listened to a lot of this book on audiobook and so the dual narrative was helped out by two different narrators. I would actually really recommend the audiobook but I'm glad I also have this on ebook so that I can go back to certain parts of it and relive the magic. 

As I said, I really enjoyed the structure of this book, I always love a dual narrative and it was great being able to see both of their reactions to something happening or not happening as the case may be! I also love the fact that this is set in that time between school and university, an area which is being covered more in YA and I'm really please to see because that is a time when everything changes and you really get to know who your friends are and are not. It has a great setting too, being away from parents was definitely a catalyst in this storylines. 

I loved the beginning and end of the book and felt like i flew through those particular parts but the middle did drag just a little for me. I started to loose track of some of the supporting characters and so it did have a bit of a lull for me in the very middle but it definitely picked up again as the story progressed. Overall I really enjoyed this read, the romance was just lovely but it wasn't rammed down your throat at any point. It was great to read about a strong female and people who have and want a great education. I would definitely recommend picking this book up this summer!
