REVIEW: The Singles Table

I really enjoyed Sara Desai’s The Dating Plan when I read it last year, she has a way of writing refreshing contemporary romance stories with substance. They’re full of strong, quirky characters who have depth and always a reason to fight the urge to fall in love. The Singles Table fits right in with that mold. Lots of witty banter, fun pop culture references, intelligent characters and a little Indian spice to add to the mix.

I liked both Jay and Zara as our key characters but their parents and friends were definitely a hoot as well. There were definitely some scenes that were a bit risque but I knew what I was getting into this time. I appreciated how much substance there was around the steamy scenes.


Another epilogue I could have done without, but that seems to be the ‘thing’ these days. You can allude to a happily ever after without giving us a hard drop of way too many life event details. ⭐️⭐⭐💫


Thanks to Netgalley for access to this ARC. All opinions above are my own.


Have you ever had to sit at the singles table at the wedding? Ever had a wedding hook up?
