REVIEW: Rebel Hard by Nalini Singh


I enjoyed this novel-- a sweet romance that focused on a girl finding herself in the confines of a traditional Indian family and their expectations for her future. What made it stand out was its insights and explanations about various aspects of Indian culture that I'd never experienced before. I enjoyed getting to know these characters and their adoration, challenges, and love for their families. I loved learning more about traditions and viewpoints--I felt like I gained so much from seeing the world through Nayna and Raj's eyes and I cannot wait to find more novels like this one. I love the romance community for inviting me to read and learn about the lives of others that are living lives so interesting and it's novels like this that are much needed -- #ownvoices writers showing us nuances and perspectives about their lives and communities; showing us a full spectrum of what it's like living in the world and being part of a community that we know very little or nothing about. 


New York Times bestselling author Nalini Singh continues her Hard Play series with a sweet, sexy romance featuring big, fat, OTT weddings, a meddling grandma, and a too-serious hero who needs to be unbuttoned…

Nayna Sharma agreed to an arranged marriage in the hope it would heal the fractures in her beloved family… only to realize too late that a traditional marriage is her personal nightmare. Panicked, she throws caution to the winds, puts on the tiniest dress she can find, and ends up in the arms of a tall, rough-edged hunk of a man who has abs of steel—and who she manages to mortally insult between one kiss and the next.

Abandoned as a child, then adopted into a loving family, Raj Sen believes in tradition, in continuity. Some might call him stiff and old-fashioned, but he knows what he wants—and it’s a life defined by rules… yet he can’t stop thinking about the infuriating and sexy woman who kissed him in the moonlight then disappeared. When his parents spring an introduction on him, the last woman he expects is her. Beautiful. Maddening. A rule breaker in the making.

He’s all wrong for her. She’s all wrong for him. And love is about to make rebels of them both.
