I picked up this book because of it's interesting and unique title "The Strongman's Daughter".

Aditi must confront her own father, but will Raj support her cause?The Strongman’s Daughter is a nail-biting saga of a young girl’s clash against her father, in a battle of love, money-lust, and longing!
Talking about the plot, this book revolves around twenty-one years old Aditi Narvekar. After completing her studies from New York based college, she came back India. Her father Vithalrao Narvekar was the Chief Minister of Goa. Vithalrao Narvekar was a very manipulative politician and father. He gave Aditi two choices whether to carry on his legacy and became a politician or to get married. Aditi wanted neither of it. So her father was forcing her to get married. Along the way, she encountered supercilious and sexy Raj Dias, an activist who fights for clean and green Goa. He helped her ran her own marriage. At the end, Aditi confronted her own father & fall in love with Raj Dias.

Unfortunately, I was disappointed with the book. While reading the book, I felt like I was reading some sort of Bollywood script. I don't enjoy Bollywood that much, so maybe I liked the book less. But if you enjoy Bollywood than this book would be a definitely a good pick for you.
