The Takeover Effect by Nisha Sharma

Hemdeep Singh knows exactly what he wants. With his intelligence and determination, he has what it takes to build his own legacy away from Bharat, Inc. and the empire his father created. But when his brother calls him home, Hem puts his dreams on hold once again to help save the company he walked away from. That’s when he encounters the devastating Mina Kohli in the Bharat boardroom, and he realizes he’s in for more than he had bargained.

Mina will do whatever it takes to recover control of her mother’s law firm, even if it means agreeing to an arranged marriage. Her newest case assignment is to assist Bharat in the midst of a potential takeover. It could be the key to finally achieving her goal while preventing her marriage to a man she doesn’t love—as long as her explosive attraction to Hem doesn’t get in the way.

As Mina and Hem work to save Bharat, they not only uncover secrets that could threaten the existence of the company, but they also learn that in a winner-takes-all game, love always comes out on top.

I absolutely loved this story full of company espionage, dodgy dealings, family loyalties, and a scorching, chemistry laden romance. The best news of all is that it is the beginning of a new series, and I am already looking out for the second installment being released.

Whilst both Hem and Mina have grown up in the US and with hard working parents who have enabled them to have a comfortable and wealthy life, they are still bound by the traditions and expectations of their heritage. The whole arranged marriage issue for Mina is particularly interesting, given her ability to be a successful independent woman. It was a really effective foil for the simmering tension between her and Hem.

Their instant connection, the wit and fun that they have together, given their complex professional relationship, is delicious and believable. I wanted to read on and on, as their everyday conversations were so much fun, their intelligent banter both engaging and clever.

The business dealings which brought the two of them together were well written, and whilst not desperately complex, the plot worked well. It also meant that we got to meet the other Singh siblings who clearly need a push to become happily settled members of the family.

This was such a good book, I put off a couple of plans so that I could just sit and finish it – so do be warned that you may well find it difficult to put it down!
