I received the book Mr Imperfect Series (Complete collection) by Aditi Chopra as a review copy from the author herself, and I finished it the same evening as I received it, I just could not put it down, it was so captivating. This book has three books in one, namely, House of love; Arranged marriage and Love Tango. And I shall be reviewing the book story by story. All the three stories are set in Dallas and are somehow connected to each other by the way of characters. This is the first story of the collection. As the book blurb mentions:
Three intriguing women, Three imperfect men, Three fascinating stories!
House of Love
Real estate agent Nikki Desai has a rule of not dating her clients. When she hosts an open house on a cold Dallas afternoon, she didn’t know what was in store for her. Much like Dallas’ unexpected weather, Karan Malhotra, a business consultant, walks into her life and challenges every belief she holds close to her heart. Karan manages to cajole Nikki, but is she making a mistake in breaking her rule by dating Karan?
For Nikki Desai, 24, real estate is almost her destiny and dream. She is doing well as a real estate agent and has an open and friendly policy with her clients. A daughter of a real estate agent, Nikki has done everything without the help of her father, who does not even encourage her let alone appreciate her. She is a good judge of people and has a chatty and understanding personality. Her brother, Virat, hero worships her and wants to learn the strings of business from her.
Karan Malhotra, 28, travels across the country wherever his consulting firm places him. Now, he has moved to Dallas and has to look for a place to stay as his duration is getting extended and so he approaches Nikki for a lease and that too just after she has just finished one open house for a client and she greets him with her pepper spray, thinking him to be a stalker.
She agrees to look for an apartment for him and this is how they meet each other again. And then Karan asks her out for dinner, but Nikki has made a policy of not dating her clients and she is confused. But her best gym buddy, Maya, comes to her rescue and tells her to break the rule once and so she does.
Then comes the misunderstanding in the form of Sasha, the daughter of his mother’s best friend and the girl his mother wants him to marry. She stays in Austin, his hometown and comes to Dallas for some work and on seeking Nikki introduces herself as his fiancée.
A sweet, simple story with the right ingredients in the right proportion. I loved Nikki’s character and Karan is a sweet charming boy. The relationship shared by the Malhotras is so different from the relationship between the Desais.
