Girl Gone Viral - Alisha Rai | Spoiler Free Book Review

I finally got around to reading The Right Swipe last month after having it on my Kindle since release day and I enjoyed it so much that I quickly ordered myself of the next book in the series from Alisha Rai! If you haven't checked her out yet, I would definitely recommend her books. 
Girl Gone Viral - Alisha Rai | Spoiler Free Book Review

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

I don't see any wedding rings . . .
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 . . .

With the internet on the hunt for #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's every look says he wants to be more than just her bodyguard . . .''

My Review

Let me start off by saying how gorgeous this cover is, I love illustrated covers and this might be one of my favourites so far this year. Even the spine is gorgeous! This is the second book I have read from Alisha and I loved the writing style of this one, even more so than The Right Swipe and I didn't think that was going to be possible. It makes me so excited to read what Alisha publishes next. 

Both of our main characters, Katrina and Jas, are dealing with past traumas (I would recommend checking Goodreads for trigger warnings just in case, even though it doesn't go into too much detail). Jas' trauma and past is a mystery for about 50% of the book and I couldn't have predicted it. This book also has really great anxiety representation which I appreciated as this is something I deal with. Katrina discusses medications and uses the 'five things method' and sees a therapist to help with her anxiety. 

I really liked both Katrina and Jas, they were both such selfless characters and kind people who couldn't have been a better couple! This is definitely more of a slow burn romance, they don't even reveal to each other that they like each other until about halfway through the book but it was really well done. They are both important to each other so it was a big deal for them to share this. 

This book has features one of my favourite tropes which is forced proximity, I can't get enough of it in romance. There were so many things I loved about this book including the text messages between characters, they were so cute and I adored the ending! One of the only slight issues I had with this book is that I wished that Katrina and Jas had more conversations with each other and a few things I would have liked to have happened towards the end but it was a great four-star read for me and I would recommend!
