#BookReview :: Bootie and the Beast by Falguni Kothari

Fairytales don't end with True Love's Kiss, they begin with one...
Diya Mathur (aka Beauty), celebrated supermodel and Party Princess of India, is adored by everyone. She works hard, plays hard, and has the biggest shoe fetish on the planet. But after she purchases one baby bootie, Diya's reputation is in ruins. There's only one place to escape the rumours - Texas, under the protection of her lifelong friend, and secret love, Krish Menon (aka the Beast).
Financial whizz-kid, CFO and entrepreneur, Krish is a brooding workaholic with a charisma that still brings Beauty Mathur to her knees. He has no idea, of course! They've shared a bond since childhood - a special friendship that thrives on sparring, teasing and goading - but with Diya back in his life and under his roof, Krish's latent desire for her explodes. And when he finally admits to the secret that has never allowed him to commit to any woman - especially Diya - everything changes. Krish might finally realise how much he wants his Beauty. But he won't get her until Diya has tamed her Beast.

Diya Mathur is the Princess of the Indian Fashion World. She is beautiful and smart and bit of a drama queen. She also has the biggest shoe fetish in the world. But this fetish kind of lands her in trouble when she buys a baby bootie. The rumour mills go frenzy and speculations follow her everywhere. To take a break and let the rumours run its course, Diya escapes to her childhood friend’s abode in Texas. Krish Menon is a brooding CFO, dubbed as the beast by Diya, with a commitment issue. Their relationship thrives on teasing and goading each other. But with Diya living under his roof, Krish is forced to confront his secret. Will these two ever stop butting their heads and take a moment to actually take stock of their feelings for each other? Will they be able to come together to find their happily everafter?

When you know how a book is going to end, it is a difficult job for the author to keep the readers engaged throughout the book. Falguni Kothari has managed exactly that with this book. She has loaded the book with generous amount of humour and drama while maintaining a fine balance of both. The narrative is catchy and the author’s language simple to compliment the plot. I liked the way the characters were developed in the book. It allowed us to get up close and personal with our protagonists and live their life with them. Diya is a girly-girl who still believes in fairy tales. Krish on the other hand is this pillar of strength that any woman would love to hang on to!

Overall,  this was a light, fun and entertaining read.

Falguni Kothari is a non-traditional homemaker who accidently tripped on a misplaced soccer ball and fell down the writer’s rabbit hole. Having no more experience with the whole writing/publishing shebang than being a voracious reader and movie buff, it more than surprised her that she could, in fact, write a full-length novel. 
Now, several manuscripts down, when she is not trying to find a way out of her many domestic duties or cajoling her Latin dance coach to compose a rumba on Bollywood music, she is found embroiled in some or other scandal—sorry, creating stories—on her ever-faithful laptop.
She’s authored Bootie and the Beast, It’s Your Move, Wordfreak! and Scrabbulous Impressions, a short story. She rumbas across a whole smorgasbord of Social Media daily and loves to connect with most living things.
