Variables of Love - review stop

Variables of Love

Meena Kapoor knows what life has in store for her. She’s in her senior year at Stanford where she’ll graduate summa cum laude, and then she'll begin her interviews…her marriage interviews. Meena is Indian, and she’s never questioned that she’ll have an arranged marriage like all the generations before her. Not until she meets gorgeous math major Ethan Callahan. Ethan’s sense of humor and free spirit stir feelings in Meena she didn’t know were possible outside of Bollywood movies. It doesn’t hurt that he’s charming and has the uncanny ability to make math sound like poetry, but Meena knows their equation makes no sense in the real world. 

Ethan finds himself intrigued by the mysterious, beautiful girl, whose big, brown eyes reflect great pain. His goals are small at first—to make her smile and then to laugh. But he soon wants more, and though Meena is adamant they have no future, he convinces her to share the present. Ethan believes every problem has a solution, but with cultural expectations and family duty among the variables, they will struggle to solve the ultimate equation to find happiness.

4.0 out of 5 stars true loveNovember 2, 2014
This review is from: Variables of Love (Kindle Edition)
I loved the concept of this story. I always enjoy reading or learning about other cultures, even about those who live in America but stay with traditions. That being said, I hate math and occasionally felt lost when Ethan and Meena got to talking math. To me, it felt a little too much. It dragged the story down and um, I have no interest in it. I hate math. Either way, there are a few errors here and there in the book but nothing that will keep you from reading and enjoying this story.

To see Meena and Ethan evolve, Raj and Rachel, I felt this book had a perfect balance of main characters and side characters. The story truly is a romance.
"I want a forever. Will you be my forever?"
Sigh. How could you not? So, if you can handle the brain numbing math and the too mature conversations for college students and look at this for what it truly is, a multi cultural romance, then you're going to enjoy it. This story really has a lot of great qualities. Over bearing guilt, parents who expect obediance, and a true love story. Grab your copy and read it.

I am a hopeless romantic in a hopelessly pragmatic world. I have a full time life and two busy teenagers, but in the dark of night, I sit by the warm glow of my computer monitor, and attempt to conjure up passionate heartwarming stories with plenty of humor.
I started imagining stories in my head at a very young age. In fact, I got so good at it that friends asked me to create plots featuring them as the heroine and the object of their affection as the hero. We'd spend hours on the phone while I came up with a series of unrealistic, yet tender events, which led to a satisfying conclusion. You've heard of fan fiction... this was friend fiction.
Even with that, it took many years to realize I could produce an actual full-length book that readers would enjoy. I try to make my stories humorous, realistic, with flawed but redeeming characters. I hope you enjoy my stories and always find The Happily Ever After in every endeavor.
