Description:

Anna has never been the beautiful one; she’s always been the nice one. So when the gorgeous man sitting across the table at a wedding reception remembers her from high school—and quite fondly at that—she’s taken off guard. Formerly overweight and unpopular, Kiran has never forgotten Anna, the one person who was kind to him when no one else could be bothered, and Anna’s a bit flustered as she slowly comes to grips with his intense attraction for her. In what feels like a romantic dream come true, all-grown-up, hunky Kiran invites Anna on a trip to Varanasi. But her troubled, whack-a-do ex-boyfriend starts interfering, creating drama at every turn, which begs the question, “Can nice girls really finish first?"

My Review: 

my rating for this book is: 5 stars

In this book we meet Anna who is at this point with David even though it seems like there is problems between Anna and David.  Next we read about Anna and her ex-Luke going to a wedding where Anna meets Kiran a man she use to know from school a long time ago.  Not long David and Anna break up, which proves to be a problem in itself.  

Anna accept Kiran's request to go to India to see Kiran's grandmother who is dying.  While there the bond between them becomes very strong leading the reader to know that romance is on the way. 

I enjoyed this story it reminds me of Elin Hilderbrand with the levels this story had.  It was a great read and kept me entertained and what was going on with her daughter was a complete 360 then what I was expecting. I liked how for the most part this story wrapped up nicely.  I thoroughly enjoyed and think anyone who loves chic lit will love it as well.
