master chef DJ Caine whose initial meeting is fraught with haughtiness and false impressions As it turns Trisha is the La decisin de John (Slow Death n 5) (Spanish Edition) only doctorffering a cure for DJ s beloved sister s brain tumor so despite their mutual dislike the two are forced together again and again I liked that the author didn t follow the PP plotline 100% there are plenty Death Is Not the End A Novella of familiar beats but the story here standsn its wn and isn t shoehorned into unnatural shapes just to make it fit the pattern I also like that it s Trisha who s in the Darcy role here hiding behind her snobbiness and self image and repelling the very person she finally realizes she wants to attract The story moves uickly has some key emotional moments LOTS f mouth watering descriptions All the Stars and Teeth of DJ s culinary creations and definitely succeeds as a love story with plentyf modern twists uite fun I m hoping Sonali Dev writes in this world Fun Fun FunA gender flipped Pride and Prej retelling with a surgeon Trisha as Mr Darcy and DJ as Elizabeth BennettWhat I loved drama jumping balconies rom com scenes flailing in love girl hates boy trope to fall in love later rich girl poor boy trope royal Indian father ex Bollywood Indian mother rich family and parties FOOD Well what do you expect Le Cordeon Bleu chef who specializes in French and North Indian fusion I must say DJ is the total rom com hero and I loved it Well built good chef caring British accent sarcasm and humour He was too perfect and I definitely didn t care I loved it This isn t your usual retelling So the characters were surprises For eg there s a Jane and Emma in the novel but maybe you might not be able to guess what they are upto in the novel Wickham was brilliant tooWhat I didn t Some names were so confusing I wish DJ was not named Darcy and also cast as a retold version 14 of Elizabeth While this does not make it confusing I felt it could ve beenmitted for further clarity The first chapter was pretty boring I considered leaving it unfinished Until the tempo picks up which is when DJ and Trisha meet it was dull and definitely not captivating I didn t understand why DJ had to be f mixed heritage It felt unnecessary BUT I Am Hoping There Will Be Adeuate am hoping there will be adeuate in the rest f the series This books is an awesome starting novel for a fun trilogy I hope the rest would be just as funEdit When I re read the last point I realised it could be interpreted in a wrong way What I mean is not that a mixed heritage character cannot be cast in a book without reason but that it seemed like something done for a diversity tick without conviction But still awesome fun read MY RATING 55 STARSI received a copy from Harper Collins Canada in exchange for a honest reviewBUT GUYS this might be my favourite read Bedeutung und Schreibweise der japanischen Schriftzeichen (Die Kanji lernen und behalten, Band 1) of 2019 so far Okay not my most favourite bookf 2019 but Top 10 and it s pretty high up Lasers Harnessing the Atom's Light on the list If you re a fanf retellings then you need to read this Cosgnosis one because insteadf it being completely by the book this is a fresh twist Les Nocturnes on Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen I m not educated enough to tell you point by point differences but Sonali Dev played around with the characters from both the Bennet and Darcy family I don t know how to go into this book without gushingver everything but you re going to hate Trisha Get Started in Beginners Russian or at least think something is wrong with her because she s emotionally unavailable and socially awkward YESSSSSS She is Darcy and she has good intentions for everything a saint really but she s so freaking awkward people think she s a jerk When she s not And then she doesn t understand what is goingn to the point that there s a bunch A Thread So Fine of misunderstandings and she becomes the jerk people paint her to be I m not saying Trisha is perfect She s not She says some stuff that are unwarranted but I loved her a lot by the endf the book just like how readers love Darcy so hush Don t hurt my baby Anyways Trisha is great because she strives to win the heart s f her family members after The Incident The Incident has caused major grief and complications in her family as they dealt with a psych.

Free download Pride Prejudice and Other FlavorsIn a PP story like this and the added conflict with Julia was a bonus I wasn t expecting I seriously loved every aspect Overall Sonali took a well known story and made it something that is entirely hers I was captivated from the first page and I would love to read from this family Huge thanks to William Morrow for providing the arc free f charge I keep going back and forth Harem Spa on the rating This might be 25 starsr it might be solidly 3 I can t decideI ve enjoyed Sonali Dev s romance novels so I was curious what I would think ایک مسلسل of her women s fiction particularlyne that is Pride And Prejudice inspired And I have to say my feelings are complicatedAs a PP inspired gender bent story it s inventive and a great update Julia Wickham s character in particular was a greattreacherous take This is not a straight retelling and this frees Dev up to make some interesting choices with the charactersThe food descriptions are Treasure Hunter Sara Chambers onef the best parts Comrade Kirillov of this story DJ s passion for his work as a chef was just as fascinating as Trisha s response to his creations I also really liked learning about the technology Trisha developed inrder to do cutting edge surgeries Chakra Empowerment for Women on tumors I have no idea if it s basedn existing technology but I hope soHowever the medical plot didn t work for me and that means a good portion The Pagan's Prize of this book didn t work as Trisha is a surgeon and DJ is her patient Emma s brother There are major HIPAA violations throughout where Trisha readily discloses Emma s medical historyptions and prognosis to her family She even laughs The Prophecy of Three (Realm Walkers off HIPAA basically saying her family is exempt which just no They re not Then there s the matterf Trisha a health care provider dating her patient s brother Now there is some gray area here as Trisha s cousin connected DJ to her for the sake Tao The Tree Of Life Alchemical Sexual Mysteries of the East West Llewellyn's World Magic Series of giving Emma medicalptions Technically they first met at Yash s fundraiser as DJ catered the event Although Emma was already her patient DJ was never at the hospital when Trisha did her rounds So I can see where the lines are blurred but they never address the possible ramifications f how a relationship could impact Emma s care and I m still pretty sure it would violate Trisha s employer s policies if not her medical license Look I don t know how many times I need to say this regarding health care provider patientpatient family member relationships but they re wrong If you are providing direct care to someone then there s a good reason to not become romantically r sexually involved with them r their family members It s an ethical violation for good reason and it boils down to relationship imbalance If your health care provider ever tries this with you please run in the pposite direction because they do not have you Research Methods in Kinesiology or your well being in mind I really need authors to stop with this pairing unless it s to paint it in a negative lightr to show someone grappling with it I will read those books but I cannot handle romanticizing an ethical violationThe The Sandwich other thing that super bothered me about the medical plot was the lackf social work involvement Of course it did I used to be a medical social worker Emma s situation is the perfect reason to involve the hospital social worker I would have been all Otto Weininger Sex Science and Self in Imperial Vienna The Chicago Series on Sexuality History and Society over helping her process her treatmentptions and what the loss Scourged of her vision would mean for her life and career This was a gross mishandlingf her care and it s no wonder she didn t respond well to Trisha The Way of the Warrior Trader The Financial Risk Taker's Guide to Samurai Courage Confidence and Discipline or her brother Additionally the story was filled with ableism somef which is countered but most is not I was irritated Trisha and DJ wouldn t respect Emma s wishes to not get the surgery if it meant losing her eyesight again pointing to why social work involvement would have helped Patient centered care is paramount and I didn t see it hereThe Yash Julia storyline was uite troubling Without spoiling why I ll say it was a poor understanding Sacrilege Companion of metoo And frankly it didn t seem like the best way to adaptr update PP Lastly Trisha s family was uite toxic I found myself willing Trisha to confront them Let the Good Times Roll: Prostitution and the U.S. Military in Asia or to at least stop avoiding the issue but she never did which was uite puzzling as she s very confident and assertive professionally While we can be different people at work vs home the difference was jarring By the time she did stand up to them I was rooting for her to just cut themut f her life altogether I wanted better for her And along those lines the antagonism between her and DJ lasted far too long for my comfort and I could not buy a happy ending for them Like I said this book was complicated I m still
