Oh you know, I looked for books by my favorite narrator and came across this one. I listened to Dimple years ago and really liked it. And now they had this one so I gave it a go.

Sweetie weighs too much in other people´s eyes. Her mother is always on her case and even if she is one of the fastest runners in the state then people always get stuck on her weight.

Ashish is always compared to his older brother. He had a bad breakup and now he is drifting.

His parents set him up with Sweetie. After some drama they go on parent ordered dates and fall in love. But there is some drama to get over first.

Sweet story. Family, culture and seeing past what others think.

Two narrators. I do love Vikas Adam because he is just so pleasant listening too. And I always like Soneela´s narrating too.

Ashish Patel didn't know love could be so...sucky. After being dumped by his ex-girlfriend, his mojo goes AWOL. Even worse, his parents are annoyingly, smugly confident they could find him a better match. So, in a moment of weakness, Ash challenges them to set him up. The Patels insist that Ashish date an Indian-American girl--under contract. Per subclause 1(a), he'll be taking his date on "fun" excursions like visiting the Hindu temple and his eccentric Gita Auntie. Kill him now. How is this ever going to work? Sweetie Nair is many things: a formidable track athlete who can outrun most people in California, a loyal friend, a shower-singing champion. Oh, and she's also fat. To Sweetie's traditional parents, this last detail is the kiss of death. Sweetie loves her parents, but she's so tired of being told she's lacking because she's fat. She decides it's time to kick off the Sassy Sweetie Project, where she'll show the world (and herself) what she's really made of. Ashish and Sweetie both have something to prove. But with each date they realize there's an unexpected magic growing between them. Can they find their true selves without losing each other?
