I've been stalking The Takeover Effect pretty much since it was announced. A romance novel about brown/desi people falling in love? Heck yeah, I was all over that. It's safe to say that I was hyped for The Takeover Effect and oh my goodness, did it deliver or what! It was fierce, sexy, and just one of the most romantic books I have ever read.

I really loved all the characters in this book and by the end, I was left eagerly awaiting some of the side characters' books. Our protagonist here is Mina. She's a badass lawyer who is an unfortunate situation. Her gross uncles have taken over her late mother's company and her uncles are now forcing her into an arranged marriage that she most definitely does not want. Mina was great! She was smart, bold, and definitely a go-getter. I enjoyed her passion and her drive. I low-key wish I had that badass confidence that she had. Mina wasn't a woman who let people walk all over her. In fact, she could crush anyone with her heels! Then there was, Hem. He was a perfect match for Mina. Guys, I fell so head over heels for this guy. He was most definitely husband material. Hem was a family-oriented man who was also ruthlessly driven. Despite his family's fame, he remained a man who was humble and true to himself. Gahh! I'm just about swooning here just remembering him.

Mina and Hem meet when she is asked to help Hem's family company before a potential buyout. Their attraction to each other was instant and their romance was very fulfilling. I loved how Hem was all in and was willing to go to lengths for Mina and her happiness. There were times when he was being very possessive and Mina didn't hold back her thoughts. I loved how comfortable they were around each other and their banter was definitely top-notch. And the sex scenes? SMOKING! These two were just perfect for each other. I also loved how family-oriented The Takeover Effect was. Hem's family was important to him and they were definitely a focus here. I loved his interactions with his brothers who were all uber hot (and who are all getting their own books!). The plot was also fun. I enjoyed the whole business aspect and internal company politics.

The Takeover Effect was a fantastic romantic adult debut for Nisha Sharma. I hope she keeps writing more of these romances because I'm certainly obsessed.
