WHEN DIMPLE MET RISHI is the arranged marriage YA romcom we didn't know we wanted or needed...until we met the awesome Dimple and charming Rishi. The Date A Book team have tried to collate our favourite quotes but be careful, you will fall in love!

GIFs reflect how you will feel when you read this book. SPOILERS AHOY

  • ‘I saw her; Dimple Shah. So I walked up to her and made a totally stupid joke about us beginning the rest of our lives together. And she…she threw her coffee at me and ran away.’ (p.27)

  • ‘…And then she smiled a smile so dazzling, Rishi tripped over his own feet.’ (p.66)

  • ‘Wonder Woman is sort of my girl crush.’ (p.68) UM, YES! 

  • 'Rishi froze, his eyes gazing down right into hers. They weren’t more than three inches apart. Strange things were happening in the pit of his stomach. Fun things.’ (p.72)

  • 'Even though this was the first day he’d spent any kind of extended time with Dimple, he felt like he already knew her. Like they were continuing a conversation they’d left off.' (p.80)

  • ‘Rishi was a naturally good friend, she could tell, the kind of guy who thought your every fight was his as well.’ (p.89)

  • ‘He pressed the chrysanthemum into her small, sweaty hand. "Keep it," he said, his gaze boring into hers like he'd seen Shah Rukh Khan do to a dozen different actresses in a dozen different Bollywood movies. "Remember me." He paused. "And don't tattle."’ (p.179)
  • ‘The elevator doors pinged open, and the group of obnoxious guys stepped in.

    "Wait for the next one?" Rishi murmured, and Dimple nodded gratefully. One of the guys held his hand out so the door wouldn't close, but Rishi smiled brightly. "Oh no, you go ahead," he said jovially. "Our brains need a break from all the overwhelming idiocy."

    The guy immediately smiled and waved in response, but as the doors closed, they heard him say, "Wait, what'd he say?"’ (p.198)

  • ‘She was so close he could smell that coconut jasmine shampoo. He felt the warmth of her rushing over him, through him. Her eyes were huge behind her glasses, luminous even. "Dimple Shah...I really like you, too." He pressed his lips lightly against hers as he kept talking. He felt her shiver again, and he smiled against her mouth. "And I would be honored if this turned into a real date."’ (p.217)          

  • '“The point of dating you, Dimple Shah, is to get to know you. To spend time with you. To see the way you push your glasses up on your nose when you're especially moved by whatever you're saying. To smell your amazing shampoo. To feel your heart beating against mine. To see you smile. To kiss you." He leaned in and kissed her gently on the lips. When she opened her eyes, he was smiling. "So maybe all that other stuff that's important to me can take a back seat for now. And maybe I'm totally fine with that... If you are?"' (p.224)
