Synopsis: Cheated by her young and handsome Spanish boyfriend, Kaveri is back in India to follow a career as an artist and to find her dream man. However getting involved with an older man, making out with the hottest star in Bollywood, teaching a hot, upcoming actress Hindi; her goals seem to be nowhere in sight.
So with fresh hopes and a new philosophy, Kaveri begins to focus on her goals. Things begin to look up when there is a kindling of romance across Twitter and she starts to understand her true calling finally moving in the right direction.
“Our bodies move together in the synchronized harmony of rocking”.
“I knew this relationship would last forever. How could it not? The sex was simply brilliant”.
These are the lines from the prologue which sets the tone and pace for the book. The detailed description of the act will make your heart race thinking what’s in store ahead. But let me tell you that this is not an erotica sort of a book but it is the one which will definitely make you feel such reading some parts of the book. It is a story of the 21st century girl named Kaveri who is intelligent, smart, good looking, travelled the globe, knows seven different languages and has a passion for art. But inspite of this she gets to her knees in front of men. She enters many relationships hoping for the best, to be the same forever and ever but something goes wrong everytime leading to a fresh look at her life. And finally she lands in the lap of Arranged Marriage, the idea which she disliked but eventually finds her man of her dreams through Arranged Marriage.
The protagonist, as I said, is a 21st century girl living in the age of Facebook, Twitter and Skype where sex happens first and commitment comes later. She tries to understand life and love through her friend Aditi, her colleague Shyamolie and an art gallery owner Mamata as both her life and love goes through tumultuous times.
Writing: The characterisation is simply superb. All the characters can be identified in real life. The writing is smooth with easy to understand language and bold in parts. But that is what romance should be and must say it is very well descripted. One cannot find a single grammatical and poor proof reading mistake too.
Overall: Untill the end you will never realize that this book is a part of a triology and this shows the writing skill the author possesses. It keeps you hooked till the last, tingling with your desires, emotions and a sure shot page turner not to be missed. This book is a must read for all the die hard romantic at heart!!
