Fairytales don't end in true love's kiss. They begin with one…
For supermodel Diya "Beauty" Mathur life is one giant pink-colored party.
For numbers man Krish "the Beast" Menon life is all about control.
Diya is vivacious, winsome and has a devil-may-care attitude. She jets about the globe drenched in haute couture and sparkly booties, inspiring princely men to act like lovestruck fools.
Krish is balanced, beastly and abides no nonsense. He growls instead of talks and snarls instead of asks, and no one on the planet makes Krish growl or snarl more than Beauty Mathur.
But, for all their differences and a broken engagement, Diya and Krish are friends—the rarest of friends. And when Diya gets embroiled in yet another scandal that not only threatens her reputation but her single-and-fabulous status as well, Krish steps in to protect her like always. He invites Diya to hide out in his lair in Dallas, Texas.
But something is odd between them this time.
The Beast has a secret. And Beauty will not rest until she peels it from him. Her meddling triggers an unexpected reaction, and it changes the status of Beauty's relationship with the Beast forever.

Bootie and the Beast by Falguni Kothari is the story of Diya Mathur and Krish Menon,. Diya is the Princess of the Indian Fashion World; beautiful, smart, and a bit of a drama queen. She also has a huge shoe obsession which lands her in trouble when she buys a baby bootie. The rumor mills go crazy with all sorts of speculations following her everywhere. In order to please her family, Diya takes a break, hoping the rumors run their course, escaping to her childhood friend’s home in Texas. Krish, called the beast by Diya, is a brooding CFO with a commitment issue. Their relationship is survives on teasing and goading each other; with each being too stubborn to admit their attraction and interest. There were times I wanted to slap one or the other for being so stubborn despite understanding where each was coming from. As the story moves forward, bits and pieces of the past are revealed, revealing how each of them came to repress the emotional baggage they had. Diya and Krish need to stop goading each other, take a moment to take stock of their feelings for each other and then they might just be able to find their happy ever after. Ms. Kothari wrote a wonderful and emotional story that is not to be missed. She provided a tale rich and imaginative, providing endearing characters giving Diya and Krish a chance at having a true and forever love. I recommend Bootie and the Beast to other readers.
