Straight As A Jalebi

Aaaaand… It’s Publication Day!

It’s been a long time coming…

Today is the day, Peeps!

Straight As A Jalebi is out in the world, finally.

I’ll not lie to you. I am extremely nervous.

Writing a MM romance is not a small thing, especially if you are not M, and have no personal experience of being in a MM relationship.

With this in mind, I had my sensitivity readers, and thankfully they felt I had handled the storyline and details appropriately.

But it’s what the wider community thinks that is the thing, now.

You can order the Kindle version below.

The paperback will be available in a couple of weeks, too!

The Blurb

Who knew that an innocent trip to India in the year 2000 would have such an impact on his life?

Sunny had only gone as a chaperone for his sister and her best friend and to attend to a few business matters.

He’d ended up with a deal that would change the shape of his professional future and possibly his personal one too.

Battling the pressures of marriage by his family isn’t Sunny’s only fight, as he finds his feelings for a certain ‘friend’ may be more than just friendship.

But how can he tell anyone how he truly feels?
Because the road to love isn’t always straight…

Ritu Bhathal is a fresh, new, and much-needed voice for British Asian fiction.

Straight As a Jalebi is Book 2 in the Rishtay Series, following the Gill family in the new millennium.

And a recommendation from best-selling author Jeevank Charika!

“This is a delightful male-male sweet romance. Sunny is just adorable, and Milan is the perfect guy for him! I raced through this book in one highly enjoyable weekend.”
