So, this contemporary romance book is the first in a duology. A series comprising of two books. According to BookTube, duologies are really in at the moment. Apparently, duologies are the new trilogies. So, I thought I'd jump on that bandwagon ~ sometimes, you gotta follow the trends!
As the cover above hints, it is of the more light-hearted romance variety, hence the cover is very different to the ones in my Soulmates Saga. I wanted the cover to reflect that this is not as... serious as my other contemporary romance series, and the characters are not as troubled, tormented or complicated as Jamie and Mukti from the Soulmates Saga.
This was intentional. I wanted to write a new series that felt like a new series and read like a new series. I didn't want to write a different story with Jamie and Mukti as the main characters, but dressed up in different clothes, assigned different names and dumped into different situations. I wanted the characters in this series to be simpler, have fewer secrets and skeletons in their closets, to be more fun and light-hearted.
However, if you like to read about a troubled soul or two, don't worry, there are a couple of characters that are haunted by their pasts......
I wouldn't say this is chick-lit ~ it's not my favourite genre to read; I hardly read any chick-lit, so I wouldn't know how to write a chick-lit ~ but I think lovers of chick-lit will enjoy this.
To wrap up this post, let's take a look at the blurb for this book:
If I Say Yes (Love & Alternatives, Book 1) ~ A Contemporary Romance Novel by Neha Yazmin
You know the story where the girl-next-door-type is getting married to a jerk – and she’s only marrying him because she’s given up on finding Mr. Right – only for the man of her dreams to walk into her life days before the wedding?
This is not that story.
How about the story where the girl is engaged to the nicest guy in the world, but the appearance of a mysterious hunk rocks her world off its axis and makes her wonder if she should select sexy instead of sweet?
This isn’t that story, either.
My story does however, include a man I’m going to marry and a man that…
You’ll find out soon enough.
An unexpected marriage proposal, the perfect fiancé and engagement party, and Shell is about to embark on a new chapter of her life. But as she prepares for her happy ever after, she discovers that there are people trying to sabotage her pending nuptials.
She just didn’t think one of them might be a stalker she never knew she had, and another to come in the form of Sebastian Lowe, her fiancé’s best friend!
Seb thinks he’s saving his childhood friend from marrying the wrong girl and will stop at nothing to get his way.
But as unforeseen circumstances force Shell and Seb to work together, will she be able to prove to Seb that he’s wrong about her? Or will Seb succeed in splitting the bride and groom apart forever?
Set in contemporary London, If I Say Yes (Love & Alternatives, Book 1) is a light-hearted romance that’s perfect for readers of chick-lit and novels about weddings, wedding crashers and secret fiancés.
