Opposites attract in this romantic comedy about a free-spirited lawyer who is determined to find the perfect match for the grumpy bachelor at her friend's wedding
After a devastating break-up, celebrity-obsessed lawyer Zara Patel is determined never to open her heart again. She puts her energy into building her career and helping her friends find romance through the wedding season. She's never faced a guest at the singles table she couldn't match, until she crosses paths with the sinfully sexy Jay Donovan.
Former military security specialist Jay has no time for love. His life is about working hard, staying focused, and winning at all costs. When charismatic Zara crashes into his life, he's thrown into close contact with exactly the kind of chaos he wants to avoid. Worse, they're stuck together for the entire wedding season.
So they make a deal. She'll find his special someone if he introduces her to his celebrity clients. But when their arrangement brings them together in ways they never expected, they realise that the perfect match might just be their own.

Hot, bantery, quirky as hell, and so sweetly romantic! I LOVED this book
Utterly hilarious and so, so swoony! The Singles Table is a fantastic enemies to lovers, grumpy/sunshine rom-com. I adorned Zara and her slightly chaotic energy, and the Indian Wedding setting is perfect escapist fun. A delightful read!
