TJ Powar Has Something to Prove by Jesmeen Kaur Deo is much more than a rom-com. It is about beauty standards and social prejudices. About the pressure on teen girls to fit into the specific boxes. About self-worth that isn’t (and shouldn’t) be measured by outward appearance.
Rivals to lovers. Grumpy girl x sunshine boy. Diverse characters. Realistic relationships. Cute banter. . And most important of all, being your unapologetic self. Beauty and the Besharam is an easy summer read that is full of heart.
A charming and witty slow-burn second chance rom-com with just the right amount of angst. The Shaadi Set-Up by Lillie Vale checks all the boxes.
