REVIEW ➼ Girl Gone Viral by Alisha Rai


OMG! Wouldn’t it be adorable if he’s her soulmate???

I don’t see any wedding rings [eyes emoji]

Breaking: #CafeBae and #CuteCafeGirl went to the bathroom AT THE SAME TIME!!!

One minute, Katrina King’s enjoying an innocent conversation with a hot guy at a coffee shop; the next, a stranger has live-tweeted the entire episode with a romantic meet-cute spin and #CafeBae is the new hashtag-du-jour. The problem? Katrina craves a low-profile life, and going viral threatens the peaceful world she’s painstakingly built. Besides, #CafeBae isn’t the man she’s hungry for…

He’s got a [peach emoji] to die for.

With the internet on the hunt for the identity of #CuteCafeGirl, Jas Singh, bodyguard, friend, and possessor of the most beautiful eyebrows Katrina’s ever seen, comes to the rescue and whisks her away to his family’s home. Alone in a remote setting with the object of her affections? It’s a recipe for romance. But after a long dating dry spell, Katrina isn’t sure she can trust her instincts when it comes to love—even if Jas’ every look says he wants to be more than just her bodyguard… 


Girl Gone Viral is the first book I’ve read from Alisha Rai and I thoroughly enjoyed this story from the very beginning. This story goes to show that dating in the modern age is not always the easiest or what you expect.

Katrina is the hopeless romantic. She is shy, works hard, but loves to do things for her friends. Though she also has her struggles with anxiety and panic attacks. I loved how that part was written in the story. It wasn’t overlooked or romanticized in any way. It was real and honest. Plus Katrina had a great group of friends who were supportive of her. She is a former model, but still keeps a bodyguard with her. A bodyguard that she is also crushing on. But who can blame her? Jas, like Katrina, is also going through his own struggles he is trying to overcome from past events.

This was definitely more of a slow burn romance. Going into the book I really didn’t know what to expect, but I enjoyed this story. The chemistry between the main characters was great and the secondary characters were great and added to the overall story.
