“‘What if I was Mr. right though and you blew me off?’
SINAN is charming, relentless and always goes after what he wants in life.

“Mr. Right does not exist. He’s a myth. A rumour.”
My Thoughts & Review
Firstly, I would like to than the author in putting her faith in me to read review this book knowing it was a little out of my comfort zone.
Sinan & Leyla is a contemporary love story following Leyla who has agreed to an arranged marriage.
This is Amir’s first novel and it’s a very well thought out one. It’s well written and very easy to read and follow. The story is told through Leyla’s perspective and we follow as she come to terms with what this arranged marriage will change her life.
There are a good set of characters, which I really liked, especially Leyla’s cousin who seemed to speak her mind. They were all quite funny and entertaining. Saying that there were a couple of occasions where I started to get a little annoyed with Leyla’s actions, but overall she was very likeable.
What I found particular interesting in this book was learning a bit more about the Muslim Culture. I have Muslim friends but the majority of them have married outside their culture so things were done very differently.
As I said at the beginning this was a little out of my comfort zone but it turned out to be a really good read, and would happily recommend to anyone looking for a quick cosy contemporary love story.
