ARC Review: Girl Gone Viral by Alisha Rai

Hey y’all! I hope week whatever this is of quarantine is going well for y’all! I had to take my dog to the vet this morning (it wasn’t anything life threatening, but he had to get some vaccines and the vet though it would be best if he got them now rather than waiting another month or two for everything to open back up) and the little fatty has gained 2.5 pounds! On a big dog, this wouldn’t be that big of a deal, but the ideal weight for my mini corgi, sheltie, australian shepard mix is 14 or so pounds- he’s 17.5 right now, so he’s chunky. We gotta cut down on the snacks.

Speaking of snacks, I just read a book that was definitely a snack (I’m sure I’m not actually using that right, but whatever, we’re going to go with it lol). Thank you so much to NetGalley and Avon for letting me read Girl Gone Viral by Alisha Rai! This book comes out tomorrow, April 21, so make sure you grab it then!

Girl Gone Viral 4/5 Stars

Summary from Goodreads: 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…

OMG so this reminded me of that #planebae stuff that happened back in 2018 maybe? I remember how gross it was when it was happening, so being able to read a book based on something similar from the woman’s point of view was great. Also, I loved Katrina when I read the Right Swipe, so I was super excited to be able to read her story. I feel like there was so much more to her backstory and her trauma that we didn’t know about in the summary and in book one, so it was really nice to get to know her better and to understand why she was the way that she was. I also loved the South Asian elements- hello brown people! I loved Jas and his family and their farm! This was such a great book and I cannot wait to read more books by Alisha Rai!
