Review: Every Time It Rains by Nikita Singh

34235087
Love is a dangerous thing. It brings with it great joy, and opens you up to pain. But does one really have the courage to say no and look the other way?


Laila is yet to recover from her painful past. Hurt, and untrusting of love, she is fully immersed in work, her only source of cheer. Her bakery franchise is very popular and she just might be able to go national, if she can pull off that big deal.


Just when things are looking up, along comes JD, an impetuous, free-spirited creature to stir up the calm. He's her exact opposite. Laila s self-destructive, he s life-affirming. She s cautious, he s buoyant. But here s the thing: he makes her feel the very things she wanted to forget. Stirring a familiar passion she longed for but had lost the courage to pursue. 

They are irrepressibly drawn to each other but will she ever be able to trust him?
Every Time It Rains is the story of every girl who has ever had her heart broken. And fallen in love again. 


**Thanks to Harpercollins for considering me worthy enough to send a physical review copy**

Light, funny and emotional read which leaves you with positive thoughts.

One quote that comes to my mind after reading this book is :
"we all are a little broken, some more than the others". 
This quote defines this book so well.


This is the story of first love gone wrong and second chances. This is the story of hope and self healing. This is the story of friendship, love and trust.

The story revolves around Laila and JD. Laila had a tough past and is still living in it's aftermath. She is a no nonsense type of woman and does not take shit from others. She is independent and as happy as she can be. Time and experiences has made her hard, taking away all her faith in love. 

Enters JD, with all cool dude attitude, charming boyish grins and carefree nature and suddenly laila's world is turned upside down. He touches those parts of Laila which she has deeply hidden. They are as opposites as they come but opposites have a way of finding each other.  But the question is, will Laila move into the light or succumb into the darkness? Will she ever trust anyone? Will she ever find her happily ever after?

The book was quite good but the bond between the main characters .i.e. Laila and JD was missing. We weren't even introduced to JD till the half of the book. There was so much of detail about anything and everything but no detail about the character's relationship. I wanted to read more about the couple but what I got was more of Laila and her relationship with her friend Maahi and her employees which is quite ridiculous. We don't get enough scenes between Laila and JD. The author must focus on the main characters rather than the supporting characters. I wanted to know more about JD's past but the author didn't give away a single thing about him. Frankly speaking, the characters were very vague and not developed except Laila. 

Nevertheless the novel had a good plot and writing style which forced me to read ahead. So all in all I enjoyed reading this book it was a fair read!!

BOOK REVIEW: BOUND BY VENGEANCE(born in blood mafia chronicles #5 ) BY CORA REILLY

Growl
He’d never had something to himself, never even dared to dream about owning something so precious. He was the unwanted bastard son who’d always had to content himself with the leftovers of others. And now they’d given him what only a few weeks ago had been out of his reach, someone he wasn’t even allowed to admire from afar, one of their most prized possessions. Thrown at his feet because he was who he was because they were certain he would break her. He was her punishment, a fate worse than death, a way to deliver the ultimate punishment to her father who had displeased them so greatly.

Cara
She had always been the good girl. It didn’t protect her.
She didn’t know his real name. People called him Growl to his face and the Bastard behind his back. Both were names he couldn’t possibly have chosen for himself. His eyes were empty, a mirror to throw back her own fear at her. He was a brutal hand of the Las Vegas Camorra.
And now she was at his mercy.

REVIEW-- Ira Oberoi's Pursuit of Love by Niti Chopra

Sparkling and zesty with a dash of green, a Virgin Mojito is a unique blend up and Ira is one lucky girl to have found her Mojito – tall and handsome with green eyes, he is in every definition the intoxication for her. In a twist of tales, the traditional concept of the boy wooing the girl goes for a toss. Smitten at first sight, she boldly pursues her love interest, every bit candid and upfront about it. 

But what is a concoction if not for a heady mix of elements? Her descriptive personal diary falls in the hands of her mother who, on the verge of a cardiac arrest, forbids her from getting into a relationship with the guy she has fallen for.  Will Ira stand up for the love that she has found?Or will she be the ideal daughter and keep the promise for her mother’s sake? 

Will hers be a love story that finds it difficult to have a sweet ending or will it be the perfect fairytale to be remembered down the years?
Will Ira Oberoi’s Pursuit of Love be successful?

1. Devil In Winter (Wallflowers #3) By Lisa Kleypas
Some Quotes From Devil In Winter “Mysteries of attraction could not always be explained through logic. Sometimes the fractures in two separate souls became the very hinges that held them together.”  --------------
“If my love can hold you, I'll keep you with me.”
--------------
“Ah, Evie,” she heard him say softly, “I must have a heart, after all…because right now it aches like the devil.”
“Only your heart?” she asked ingenuously, making him laugh.
He lowered her to the bed, his eyes sparkling wickedly. “Also a few other things,” he conceded. “And as my wife, it’s your duty to ease all my aches.”

Plaza Requiem: Stories at the Edge of Ordinary Lives by Martha Batiz

Mexican-Canadian Martha Batiz has crafted, in her first collection written in English, visceral stories with piercing and evocative qualities. She has filled her recognizable, sisterly/motherly, and imaginative characters with qualities we all hold close to our hearts, but this is powerfully juxtaposed by the uncertainty that lurks at the edges of ordinary lives. Most often they are women, trapped in violent relationships, facing dangerous political situations, or learning to live with the pain of betrayal. Yet Batiz's stories shimmer with the emotional surge of vindication, evoking the rewards women attain after a powerful exploration of their darkest moments. As an emerging writer, Batiz crafts her stories with qualities reminiscent of Joyce Carol Oates, Shirley Jackson, and Cuban author Leonardo Padura: with precision, haunting vision, and the will to survive all odds.
