ARC Review - How To Love An Ogre by Zee Monodee!


It is a truth universally acknowledged that an Indian-origin girl over the age of eighteen must be in want of a husband … 

Tired of her mother’s relentless matchmaking, young & successful interior designer Diya Hemant is determined to find her Prince Charming on her terms. Armed with a definitive list of requirements, she is sure she’ll know Mr. Right when she meets him. If only Fate would stop throwing frogs along her path.

British widower & single father Trent Garrison thought coming to live in sunny Mauritius would be a new beginning for him and his two young sons. He craves peace & a quiet life, & finding love is not on his radar. If only Fate would stop throwing airhead princess-types along his route.

When Diya meets Trent, it is hate at first sight. Though not averse to kissing a frog in the hope that it might reveal a prince, she draws the line before this surly man, who brings to mind an ogre of the worst kind.

Then, she meets Gareth, who embodies every quality she has on her list. But something still feels off, and against her better judgment, her thoughts, her life, and her feelings all seem to be converging towards Trent. 

He is all wrong for her … or is he? Can this modern-day princess overcome her own expectations and see beyond the ogre to the man beneath?

Warning: If you love Pride and Prejudice retellings, enemies to lovers, witty banter, & overbearing families, then you will enjoy this coming-of-age story where the youngest of the Hemant sisters finds that, sometimes, love might be hiding right under your nose on the sultry west coast of Mauritius.

Miss Zee Monodee DID IT AGAIN peeps! She wrote another enchanting, inviting, sen-freaking-sational romance that I ADORED with my whole heart!

How To Love An Ogre was...incredibly written. It was fun, it sizzled with heat, and the characters were rich with personality and the story calls to the romantic in me. From beginning to end I fell in love with the beautiful scenes and the wit along with the way the story just grabbed me and wouldn't let go. Diya is a sassy woman who I liked a lot and Trent had a surprising soft interior to his hard outer shell that I found wonderfully appealing.  Add in some sweetness and a sprinkle of mischief and a whole lot fun and we get a story that just delights, amuses and will make you smile!
