20661129
“Does love manage to find a way, even when all illusions fade? Where does the journey end?”Akshat Diwan has everything that the tangible world can offer for a dream-like life – luxurious cars, a palatial mansion, extravagant wealth and an heirloom of infinite opulence. All but peace! His parents are forever in a state of prolonged hostility; add to it failing spurious friendships and dwindling love life which metamorphoses him into a soul-less creature. Cursing his misfortune and in an attempt to end his anguish and disparity, Akshat embarks on an unknown journey, seeking nothing but solitude, or perhaps a glimpse of his inner being. It is when he meets a stranger that he realizes his journey is not just any journey, but a roller coaster ride to unravel the harsh realities of life.It’s No Longer A Dream is all about collecting the shattered pieces of meaning of life, love and relationships and bringing them back to a whole again.

Okay!! So let's start with my ramblling!

'Its No Longer a Dream' is my second book by author 'Sanjeev Ranjan'. The thing that compelled me to choose this book was it's title. I mean just take a look at the title, it makes you curious about what's actually there in the book. 

Warning-- This book is going to make you cry and you won't be able to put it down!!

The story revolves around Akshat and Naina, the lead pair and also Randhir and Radhika, the supporting pair. The entire story is divided into 3 parts.

Part 1 introduces the readers to Akshat. 
Akshat has everything, let it be wealth, friends, family, a luxurious house, grand cars, a girlfriend names Naina and everything a person wishes for but the strange thing is, that he is still unhappy. He has no peace. Outworldly, he has a perfect life but the reality was far far away from perfect. His family is on the brink of breakdown and his friends only care about his wealth.

What can be worse than being surrounded by people all the time just because you are rich? That's what usually happens with Akshat. Enters Naina, Akshat's girlfriend. Naina loves Akshat but is somehow scared to tell him.

Compelled by his circumstances, he walks away from everything, his family, his friends, his wealth and most importantly Naina. Akshat gets on a train and meets Randhir which marks the beginning of part 2. 

Part 2 introduces the readers to Randhir. Akshat meets Randhir on a train.

Randhir tells him his own love story. Randhir's story acts as subplot in this book. Randhir's and Radhika's story is really beautiful and somehow teaches Akshat the real meaning of love and relationship. This part is a tearjerker.

Part 3 bends towards the epilogue when Akshat returns back home and expresses his love to Naina.

This book is basically an emotional rollercoaster which takes the readers on a beautiful romantic journey. The story is well written and all the scenes and events are beautifully described.

Part 2 actually made me cry and I was like "Can I have a boyfriend too, I need a hug". Don't you even dare laugh, a girl can hope right?

'Its No Longer a Dream' teaches the readers the actual meaning of love. The most important message that I got from this book is that the moments can never be forgotten and things cannot be undone.Life is unpredictable so why wait and be miserable? when we can love and be happy.

The only negative thing about this book was that the first part was a bit stretchy and the details were unnecessary but all in all this was a beautiful but teary read.

'Its no longer a dream' is perfect for hopeless romantic people like me. So kudos to us romance lovers.

So get a box of tissue, some chocolates and a cup of coffee and of course this book and start reading. Do tell me your views about this lovely book.

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.

BOOK REVIEW: THE PRINCE'S PLAN BY E.M. YOUMAN

She can’t trust him…or her desire for him.
Marnie Ducello is way past second chances. Most days she’s fighting to forget the past and stay sober—a combination she doesn’t always pull off. She’s done waiting for Prince Charming. So when a sexy stranger turns out to be an arrogant, cab-stealing jerk, Marnie isn’t surprised. If only her rash reaction to his rudeness hadn’t resulted in her arrest. . .
Singer Danny Roland is no prince. He has fame, fortune, and a not-so-hidden addiction. He’s running from memories of the lives he’s ruined. Keeping his personal demons under control and out of the tabloids is what Danny wants more than anything. After a simple drug deal goes very wrong, Danny decides to make karmic amends—by finding the woman he abandoned to the police. 

Marnie’s a recovering addict, too, so he offers her the deal of a lifetime: a job as his personal assistant and a safe space in his home to live in if she stays sober.
Marnie is soon swept up into Danny’s world of prying paparaz…

ARC Review: Intrepid by Keri Lake

In the corner house of an empty street, there is a boy inside a box. In that boy, there lives a secret, one so dark, it’s sealed with locks. 

Nearly ten years have passed since the night I was captured. Tricked and betrayed, I suffered the hours of brutal torment with death’s cold whisper across my skin. And when the nameless faces that haunted my nightmares took everything and everyone I loved, I feared I’d never be free of the darkness. 
But that's the thing about fear. Over time, it breeds anger, and when anger fills the box, vengeance bleeds out. 
It's been almost a decade since I escaped their hell, staying in the shadows, hiding my demons, and God help them now that I've tasted retribution and crave more of it. 
Blood is the price for pain, and I vow to take everything and everyone they love. I’m no longer a frightened boy, but the intrepid vigilante, a ruthless executioner, who will stop at nothing to punish the depraved few that stole my life and walked free. 

The plan …
