The Emma Project by Sonali Dev

"This is the final installment in the Rajes series by this author. Although it wasn't my favorite of the series, it was a good book that served as a nice culmination with many Easter eggs from previous books. It followed the last of the Raje siblings- Vansh Raje. It draws you into the culture and current happenings in San Francisco. It's a mix of enemies/friends to lovers between the main characters. You aren't sure if you love or hate the main characters but it draws you in still the same and end up rooting for them to get their happy ending." - M. Bradley
