Product Description

A New York Times bestseller
'Get ready to fall in love with Dimple Shah and Rishi Patel' (HelloGiggles)

The arranged marriage YA romcom you didn't know you wanted or needed...

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 even harder to prove itself in the most unexpected ways.

As joyfully refreshing as Rainbow Rowell, Jenny Han and Nicola Yoon, When Dimple Met Rishi is a frothy, funny contemporary romance told from the dual perspectives of two Indian American protagonists. While Dimple is fighting her family traditions, Rishi couldn't be happier to follow in the footsteps of his parents - could sparks fly between this odd couple, or is this matchmaking attempt doomed to fail?

'Menon wrote an utterly delightful novel and broke my heart by writing an ending because I want nothing more than to keep reading about Dimple and Rishi forever . . . I'm looking forward to it being a huge hit of 2017.' (Book Riot)

5.0 out of 5 stars The novel is exuberant! 31 May 2017
By Nicole @ Nicoles' Novel Reads - Published on

Dimple Shah got into her dream college, Stanford. However, there is this summer program called Insomnia Con in San Francisco that she wants to attend but she needs to find a way to convince her parents to her go. Dimple's parents are more concerned for Dimple finding a I.I.H. (aka the Ideal Indian Husband). All Dimple wants is to live her life and immense herself in web development learning from the best. Rishi Patel is the total opposite. He embraces his parents to find the perfect future wife. Rishi's parents knew Dimple would be at the Insomnia Con program and they already know Dimple's parents.

The first official meeting between Dimple and Rishi is priceless! Dimple seems to despise Rishi but overtime she warmed up to him and even they even become friends. She knows it's not his fault and even tells him to stay when he offered to go home early. Their budding friendship ends up turning into something more.

Sandhya Menon's debut novel is charming with just enough humor. This romantic comedy shares the views of two children of two sets of Indian parents. I found it refreshing to read a novel that shows two sides of a coin. Dimple is a quirky yet spirited, goal-orientated young lady who wants to advance her career. She doesn't care about arrange marriages; she wants freedom and her independence. Rishi, on the other hand, is a hopeless romantic trying to woo Dimple. He believes in tradition while Dimple finds the culture suffocating her. Rishi's passion is art but he sees it more like a hobby and not a practical field to go into for a career.

Dimple is a role model for teenage girls. It's okay to like math, science and technology. It's okay to wear glasses and not to wear any makeup. I wish I read about Dimple when I was younger. Nowadays STEM is pretty big in education, especially for females. STEM related fields are still male dominated. It's exhilarating to read about a career-driven young lady who is passionate about web development and not about makeup and boys.

When Dimple Met Rishi tackles the struggles of desires and passions. Dimple and Rishi both gather the strength to vocalize what they are passionate about and what they want in life. Dimple's passion is web development and Rishi's passion is art. However, even though they don't want to admit, the love they have for one another is strong and they cannot let it go no matter what they want in life. Do things that make you happy! Trust your gut feeling!

Menon writes When Dimple Met Rishi with sincerity. The novel is exuberant! I was smiling when I was reading the novel for most of the time. When reading When Dimple Met Rishi, I see myself through both Dimple and Rishi. I have never read a book where I see myself completely in. I can see a part of myself in Dimple and a part of myself in Rishi. Menon fuses culture, socio-economics and overriding gender stereotypes in this rom-com. When Dimple Met Rishi is a fluffy yet heartwarming read. I highly recommend it and it's definitely a new favorite of mine.

5.0 out of 5 stars So Adorkable, Delightful and Heartwarming! 1 June 2017
By Karen Jo Custodio - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase

I absolutely without a doubt… none whatsoever ADORED and ENJOYED reading WDMR from beginning to end. From the first time Dimple Met Rishi to the very last page – I seriously could not stop swooning and smiling. And if you didn’t know, I have a weakness for stories that can make me feel all the FEELS! Dimple and Rishi are the cutest dorks and just so perfect together. They’re seriously my new favorite OTPs. It was so fun and entertaining seeing them work out their feelings for each other and Rishi is just the best hopeless romantic there is.

Sandhya Menon’s debut novel exceeded my expectations – it’s just that awesome. This book has everything and more that I look for in a YA contemporary romance: Romantic in the sweet cutesy way (Swooning like an idiot the entire time), cheesy in all the right moments (yes some were pretty mushy – but it freaking worked for me and I loved it!), hilarious with so many laugh out loud moments (Gosh, I love it when a book can make me laugh don’t you?), great characters who are easily relatable (I saw little pieces of high school me in Dimple, Rishi and Celia), and just an overall beautiful story with a lot of love and heart that will stay with you forever (Be warned! There will be some tears – and when you get to the last few chapters and think about the story as a whole – you’ll be in utter amazement).

I was practically in a nostalgic bliss walking down memory lane and remembering my own real life love stories as I read WDMR. Menon’s fantastic storytelling and writing make readers feel that thrill and excitement of falling in love, the butterflies and tingly feeling of having your first kiss, and that overwhelming happiness you feel when you’re with the person you love. But When Dimple Met Rishi is so much more than a fun cute rom-com about first love. Through Dimple and Rishi’s story, Menon also does a wonderful job exploring the Indian culture, family expectations and values, friendships, self-discovery, and what it means to forge your own path and follow your dreams — because “No matter what life, family, gender, or situation you are born into, it is still 100% up to you to decide how to live your life.” WDMR is full of hope, inspiration, empowerment and so many other life lessons. I can keep talking about all the good things in this book and go on and on and on about my favorite parts (and I have sooo many), but I don’t want to ruin the experience for you. Just trust me on this… you need to read WDMR times infinity and beyond.

Oh and one more thing… Menon totally nailed that ending! She wraps up the story so beautifully without leaving out that quirky humor I’ve fallen in love with. I’m so happy Dimple and Rishi’s story came into my life and forever they will stay. This book is definitely one of my favorite reads ever and it’s hand down just bursting with so much awesomeness — So don’t even try to argue with me because I’m truly, madly, deeply in love with this book. I cannot find enough words to express all the LOVE I have for Dimple and Rishi. Thank you Sandhya Menon for writing this gem! I can’t wait to read whatever you write next.

4.0 out of 5 stars It is the perfect summer rom-com for all! 1 June 2017

This book was an absolute delight to read, I enjoyed just about all of it from the very beginning. First off I want to say I am very white and a woman so I know nothing about being an immigrant in America but the books with these stories always interest me because it means I can learn from others. This one was especially touching because it is in one of my favorite genres as a contemporary rom-com. I loved the way they did the language in this book, did I know a lot of the Hindi language used? No but it was still fascinating to read and made me want to understand what they were saying. Dimple wasn't that likable and that is one of the reason she was so likable in the end, she could be intense but it was because she care. She had so many emotions flying around and I remember at 17 what that felt like being a girl and I didn't have parents that expected perfect out of me. I connected with Rishi and his dream to live up to what his parents wanted matters today in all cultures. I enjoyed their happiness and their free flowing attitudes. I don't think I have ever laughed at a beginning of a book as much as I did this one, when they first met, it was to die for. Now there were a few things I didn't like and some people won't even mention it because it was so almost not important but I feel like I need too. Dimple had issues of keeping her hands to herself, on several occasions she hit Rishi, punched him playfully or to actually get his attention or hurt him and I didn't like that. It never set well with me. I know others are like that's not even worth bringing up but I know so many women who got hit and beat because they took the first swing either playfully in some cases and not in others. It is dangers and no Rishi would never hurt her for this books sake I don't think but still, don't hit people or bite them. I really enjoyed the relationship that Rishi and Dimple had with their family, him very structured and disciplined, he controlled most of every day life in his family. What works for some doesn't work for all and I found it exciting with the set up between Dimple and her family, it is very much like my own in some cases. Overall I adored this book, I can't remember laughing so hard in a time because a book made me think or feel. It was worth every page read!

This book was an incredibly adorably dorky book that thrilled me in so many ways. I always love reading a contemporary book after I've immersed myself in so many fantasy and science fiction worlds. This book was even better because I got to immerse myself in Dimple and Rishi's adorkable romance. There were so many moments in this book that were so cheesy, I could not help but love them. Take for example our love birds first meeting involves one of them telling the other that they are their future husband/bride. It was so unbelievable but also so perfect for these characters.

I have two minor complaints with this book. First, these characters were supposed to be at a tech summer conference designing an app. But we got little to no insight into their 6-week project. To me it left that part of the story flat. I was expecting to have more technical references and more insight into the planning and designing phases of their app development. Second and this one is super minor but I think a glossary would have been helpful to differentiate some of the more common Hindi phrases throughout the book. Especially the names for various family members. There were times I had to read a sentence a few times to get what was said or who something was referring and I think a glossary would have been helpful.

Overall this was a fantastic read and I cannot wait to see what else Sandhya Menon writes in the future!

5.0 out of 5 stars The perfect contemporary read! 31 May 2017
By Sarah - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This is what all contemporary books should be.

Contemporary isn't my go-to genre, but the moment I heard about this book at its announcement, I knew I wanted it!

When Dimple Met Rishi is charming, funny, romantic and everything in between! Dimple loves coding and feels she doesn't live up to her parents expect of a good Indian daughter who obeys & gets married. Rishi is the loyal son who does everything his parents want for him to do.

The story is about a 6 week summer camp competition to create an app. And this is their story of how they met.

It's FUNNY!!! I laughed out loud so many times and it's also so romantic.

Everyone will enjoy this fantastic book and I highly recommend it!!
