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?
Arranged marriage – where love happens after marriage or does it? Ishan, a NRI from Dallas, Texas visits his home country, India and gets entangled in his parents’ plan to get him married. Sonali is a simple girl from a small town called Meerut and has no desire to leave India. However, she reluctantly agrees to marry Ishan. But when she settles with him in a foreign country, she is completely lost and homesick. Will Sonali find love in a conventionally arranged marriage?
Maya Sarin is sensuous and enterprising. She runs a dance school in the suburb of Dallas. Tahir Ali is an aspiring author who owns a Mediterranean restaurant in the area. When his regular dancer bails out on him, he rushes in Maya as a replacement. Maya is the inspiration that he had been longing for; she feeds his creative soul. Do they have any future together? Explore their passion and intrigue in Love Tango.
Aditi Chopra writes NRI fiction and Mr. Imperfect Series is three love stories strung together, each based on the upbeat life of Non-Resident Indians living in Dallas.
Nikki, Sonali and Maya are strong, independent career women whose lives cross paths with three Mr. Imperfects viz Karan, Ishan and Tahir in three different stories viz House of Love, Arranged Marriage and Love Tango.
Nikki is a real estate agent, Sonali is still figuring out her destiny and Maya runs a dance school. Their lives as well as the stories are inter-connected wherein these three women come across their ‘imperfect’ partners from different walks of lives. Their inhibitions and attributes, attitudes and choices reflect in their selection of a partner and the author tries to characterize each woman in a fitting manner.
What is nice about the whole book other than the stories is the message they convey. No matter how good we are in our own eyes, we are all imperfect and it is unfair to expect our partners to be perfect.
The stories belong to a series, but they can be enjoyed as standalone short stories too, for each story is complete in its own sense. Mr. Imperfect Series is a short, light read for reading during short travels or during boring afternoons.
