Feature: The Marriage Game by Sara Desai

Happy Book Birthday to Sara Desai whose debut, The Marriage Game, releases today!

Here's a bit about the book from Goodreads:

A high stakes wager pits an aspiring entrepreneur against a ruthless CEO in this sexy romantic comedy.

After her life falls apart, recruitment consultant Layla Patel returns home to her family in San Francisco. But in the eyes of her father, who runs a Michelin starred restaurant, she can do no wrong. He would do anything to see her smile again. With the best intentions in mind, he offers her the office upstairs to start her new business and creates a profile on an online dating site to find her a man. She doesn’t know he’s arranged a series of blind dates until the first one comes knocking on her door…

As CEO of a corporate downsizing company Sam Mehta is more used to conflict than calm. In search of a quiet new office, he finds the perfect space above a cozy Indian restaurant that smells like home. But when communication goes awry, he's forced to share his space with the owner's beautiful yet infuriating daughter Layla, her crazy family, and a parade of hopeful suitors, all of whom threaten to disrupt his carefully ordered life.

As they face off in close quarters, the sarcasm and sparks fly. But when the battle for the office becomes a battle of the heart, Sam and Layla have to decide if this is love or just a game.

This is the first in a new series from Desai (who also writes as Sarah Castille). I also want to add that this is an #OwnVoices novel. It sounds super fun and light and I can't wait to dive in!

(If you want a little taste of the novel, you can check out an excerpt and an audio sample over on the author's website!) If you love it, be sure to order a copy from your favorite indie bookstore or Libro.fm!
