UNWANTED GIRL by M.K. Schiller: A Book Review by Mauve Fairy

When a man loves a woman
Recovering addict Nick Dorsey finds solace in his regimented life. That is until he meets Shyla Metha.  Something about the shy Indian beauty who delivers take-out to his Greenwich Village loft inspires the reclusive writer. And when Shyla reveals her desire to write a book of her own, he agrees to help her. The tale of a young Indian girl growing up against a landscape of brutal choices isn’t Nick’s usual territory, but something about the story, and the beautiful storyteller, draws him in deep. 
Shyla is drawn to Nick, but she never imagines falling for him. Like Nick, Shyla hails from a village, too…a rural village in India. They have nothing in common, yet he makes her feel alive for the first time in her life. She is not ready for their journey to end, but the plans she’s made cannot be broken…not even by him. Can they find a way to rewrite the next chapter?

ARC was supplied via Netgalley in exchange for an honest review

Oh wow!! This is a very heartwarming story of survival, hope, finding true love and so much more!! It's tragic, emotional and gut-wrenching. Though I've already guessed the twist in the story earlier on, it's effect is still heartfelt and profound nonetheless.

I'm a big fan of MK Schiller's books like The Do-Over and Variables of Love. When I saw her newest book on Netgalley, I can't resist but wish for it. I was so elated when my request was approved! 

This book gripped me from the beginning till the end. I hated it when I had to take a break from reading. All I wanted to do was finish it and devour the book because I badly wanted to know how it will end.

What drew me to this book is that the main characters are from different cultures. The story does not resemble Variables of Love but both female characters are Indian. Shyla is shy while Nick is a recluse. He is a writer experiencing a writer's block while she's living in the States on a student visa. She's a sandwich delivery girl delivering Nick's sandwiches every evening. One night, Shyla finally got the nerve to ask Nick if she can eat dinner with him. It's from there that their friendship started.

I really don't want to say anything more about the story because what happened from there on will keep you on your toes. I went to this blindly and I want you to do the same. The reading experience is so much more enhanced when you don't have any expectations. All I can assure you is that the story will keep you guessing and will break your heart at some points and you won't stop turning the pages until the end.

MK Schiller wrote a very compelling multicultural romance. If you're skeptical how this will work, then read this book. I am impressed by how she injected a story within a story. Both stories are riveting and will hold your interest. A great read indeed!

I am a hopeless romantic in a hopelessly pragmatic world. I have a full time life and two busy teenagers, but in the dark of night, I sit by the warm glow of my computer monitor, and attempt to conjure up passionate heartwarming stories with plenty of humor.

I started imagining stories in my head at a very young age. In fact, I got so good at it that friends asked me to create plots featuring them as the heroine and the object of their affection as the hero. We'd spend hours on the phone while I came up with a series of unrealistic, yet tender events, which led to a satisfying conclusion. You've heard of fan fiction... this was friend fiction.

Even with that, it took many years to realize I could produce an actual full-length book that readers would enjoy. I try to make my stories humorous, realistic, with flawed but redeeming characters. I hope you enjoy my stories and always find The Happily Ever After in every endeavor.
