What is the book about?

Dr. Rihaan Mehta is a brilliant young neurosurgeon who has no inclination for love or marriage. According to him wives and girlfriends are annoying accessories that one can do without. But when his mother dangles the sword over his head in classic Bollywood style, he succumbs, and sets out in search of a bride who would fit his ‘requirements’. But can Rihaan deal with what he gets instead?

He frowned, straining to decipher her features obscured by deep shadow. “Deepika?”
“Naa…, not Deepika.” She stepped forward into the light, a bright smile illuminating her strikingly graceful features.
His heart sank. Not Deepika.
“I am Naina—the girl you married. Goodbye, Rihaan.”

What’s my reaction after reading the book?

Well….in a long time I came across a book where I loved reading every bit of it. The language is easy to understand and all the characters are well-defined, plus there are not many characters. I found the beginning to be quite intriguing and it kept me interested till the end of the book. The brightest part is that everything falls into the right place at the end.

It was like a Bollywood style movie going on in front of me.

The chemistry between Naina and Rihaan was very captivating. There was a spark between them and love was always there from the beginning which they never confessed. Rihaan, a high headed neurosurgeon, who loved his freedom more than anything else and as such never wanted to get married. He never believed in love and just wanted to live his life freely.

Naina was also a strong-headed, independent woman but she believed in love and wanted to get married, have kids and enjoy her familial life.

Opposites always attract and destiny had different plans in store for them. Naina and Rihaan set into a journey where life and destiny teach them the lesson of love.

My Rating: 4.5/5

My verdict:

I would strongly recommend this to all those who love reading romantic novels. A story of a beautiful and true love.
