Book Review | Incense and Sensibility by Sonali Dev – The Rajes Series Book 3

Date Published | July 6, 2021

Date Read | July 2021

Goodreads Rating | 3

Overall | I was totally confused on why we needed so much backstory before the story/romance could even be started. To be fair, this is book #3 in this series so maybe if I had read the first 2 books, I would’ve loved this enormous outpouring of backstory before the actualy book began.

Pros | Diverse book with diverse characters from all different countries

Cons | There is so much character building of the hero and heroine, they don’t even meet until more than halfway through the book.

Warnings | Heat Level = 1 + Main Character’s mother has a debilitating illness

POV | Third Person POV Past Tense

Will I Be Continuing With The Series | No

Description | Yash Raje, California’s first Indian-American gubernatorial candidate, has always known exactly what he wants—and how to use his privileged background to get it. He attributes his success to a simple mantra: control your feelings and you can control the world. But when a hate crime at a rally critically injures his friend, Yash’s easy life suddenly feels like a lie, his control an illusion. When he tries to get back on the campaign trail, he blacks out with panic.

Desperate to keep Yash’s condition from leaking to the media, his family turns to the one person they trust—his sister’s best friend, India Dashwood, California’s foremost stress management coach. Raised by a family of yoga teachers, India has helped San Francisco’s high strung overachievers for a decade without so much as altering her breath. But this man—with his boundless ambition, simmering intensity, and absolute faith in his political beliefs—is like no other.

Yash has spent a lifetime repressing everything to succeed, including their one magical night ten years ago—a too brief, too bright passion that if rekindled threatens to destroy the dream he’s willingly shouldered for his family and community . . . until now.
