Voskuni’s romantic comedy follows Nareh “Nar” Bedrossian’s love life as she navigates her ideologies of romance after rejecting her longtime boyfriend’s ill-timed and highly unromantic marriage proposal. With her mom trying to match her with an Armenian man and Nar not out as bisexual to her family, she finds herself guilted into attending a series of Armenian events in San Francisco, where she’s supposed to be meeting potential suitors. Instead, she finds a new group of Armenian friends who accept her for who she is. Among the individuals in the group is Erebuni Minassian, a confident and kind woman who piques Nar’s interest. Nar’s growing desire to get to know Erebuni continues throughout the novel, furthering her journey of self-exploration, redefining her sexuality and love preferences, and ultimately helping her find self-acceptance.
VERDICT Featuring a slow-burn, chemistry-driven relationship, the book also beautifully depicts and celebrates Armenian culture and traditions throughout the story.
