Reclusive former model Katrina King doesn’t make new friends easily or go out very often thanks to a horrific incident in her past. So when she visits a favorite coffee shop and allows a cute guy to share her table in the crowded shop, she thinks nothing of it. After all, her bodyguard Jasvinder Singh, a former soldier, is watching so she knows she’s safe. But her innocent encounter goes viral thanks to a couple sitting at a nearby table, and suddenly she’s the mysterious woman in a trending hashtag. When she panics at the thought of people following her every move, Jas sweeps her away to his family’s home. Now Kat has another problem. How does she handle close quarters with the man she’s been falling in love with, especially since she’s getting mixed messages from him? Could Jas see her as more than a client after all these years?
VERDICT Rai follows up The Right Swipe with a sweet and spicy romance that delves into some deep issues of mental health for both main characters (severe anxiety and PTSD), as well as the effects of social media on people’s lives. Essential for public libraries. [See Prepub Alert, 10/14/19.]
