My review

I have always been a fan of love- hate relations. The irresistible love and ever repulsive hatred used to pump up my veins with a rush of adrenaline. Nandini and Aditya's love is so touching and rendered palpably. I have become a fan of author's narration. The quirky humor and snappy hurdle of words leave us panting with zest.

Author herself hints through one of the characters about the overworked mills and boons tales of Celebrity meets and undiscovered stunner, which works out as a justification for the cliche story line. The initial friction and discord as well as verbal attacks and counter-strokes are very lively and pulsating.

Another commendable fact is the friendship between Nandini and Sneha. From saving friend's name a crazy cow to the insensitive exchange of curses, shows a deep friendship without emotional overture.

A major setback of the story is the predictability. The twists in the story could be predicted right after the introduction of the male protagonist. Some areas of the book gave me the feeling of a different narration of the 'pyar mohabbat serials'. With such a great writing style, if the a little more effort was taken to bring about multifarious twists especially towards the climax, the book would have done wonders. Climax disappointed me. I had decided on a 4 stars till then but the last three chapters just oozed out the fun.
