“Will you pretend to be my fiancé for the next few days?”
Recently-single model Rayna Dutt does not feel like flying to her friend’s big fat Indian wedding. But she does - and when a mix up with room allocations forces her to share a luxury villa on Emerald Isle with the gorgeous owner of the hotel - Neel Arora - and best man at the wedding, things begin to look up.
Until Rayna’s ex turns up with a new girl on his arm!
Hitting the panic button, Rayna searches for a solution. Surely Neel wouldn’t mind being her fake fiancé…? In an instant the attraction they share is fever pitch, but when scandal comes calling, Rayna soon finds herself in more trouble than she can handle!
I had read The Indian Tycoon's Marriage Deal by Adite Banerjie before and thoroughly enjoyed it. So I was really excited to see that a new book was coming out by her. I absolutely adored Trouble Has a New Name. It had all the elements which I love having in my romance novels and I really loved Rayna and Neel's story.
Rayna is a model whose boyfriend just broke up with her via text. Even though she doesn't feel like flying for her friend's wedding she doesn't want to disappoint her. And so begin the events in Rayna's life. I really didn't think I would like Rayna as much as I did. She is not your typical snob of a model. She was down to earth and sweet. I also loved how she seemed to think that Murphy's laws were always true in her case. It made her a very realistic character.
Then we have Neel. He is forced to share a villa with the beautiful Rayna because of a mix up in room allocations. What he doesn't expect is the urge to protect Rayna from her dumb ex and nosy relatives. I really liked Neel. He was the typical tall, dark and handsome hero but we also get his back story. I think that gave him and his reasons behind not wanting commitment so much more depth.
Rayna and Neel have chemistry since the first page. There are sparks flying all over the place. I loved the banter between them. They were so cute with each other and they always stood by each other in time of need. I liked how there wasn't any pretense between them. All around I loved their love story.
I loved the supporting cast as well. Rayna and Neel have real issues to work through and seeing them do just that while falling for each other was a pleasure to watch. Adite's writing is really smooth and detailed and I flew through the pages. Trouble Has a New Name should not be missed by any romance lovers out there!
