Book Review-- When Love Happens by Manish Kumar

True love never dies. It is redefined every time you feel it.

When Nish falls in love, little does he know the impact it is going to

have on his life. Hailing from conservative backgrounds, love is

nothing less than war with the world for the lover and his beloved.

Albeit limited communication, they still dare to dream of a life together. But with the pressure of attaining stability in life, he finds it impossible to chase his dreams endlessly. An unassuming man from a modest background, he fights helplessness and challenges thrown at him by life, only to learn precious life lessons. His faith in God gives him the strength to move on and find his calling in writing and poetry. When Love Happens is a tale of shattered dreams and redemption, of fear and fortitude, and above all, of the indomitable human will.

Umm, honestly? I don't know what to say about this book. I'm lost hereThis was a very average read for me. The plot was not what you call, a gripping one but still it was okay, I guess. Let me tell you a bit about the plot before revealing my feelings about this book.

The story revolves around a guy named Nish, who is hopelessly in love with his childhood friend G. His love could even be predicted as one sided, as G doesn't really acknowledges his love.

But the thing is that G loves him too, she is just a bit afraid to confess her feelings because of their conservative backgrounds and this breaks Nish's heart, distracting him for his goal, to get himself enrolled in IIT. Broken hearted, Nish tries to forget all about G and turns all his focus to his dreams.

So, all in all, this is a story of a normal guy and his desires, his journey of love and success.


Frankly, I am not a very strict reviewer but this book really got on my nerves. The plot was nothing special or unique or gripping and it definitely didn't hold my interest but still I pushed myself to finish it, in the hopes that it would get better. As a romance reader, I have read many books with simple, next door plots, if you know what I mean. 

I know I am being a bit crass but according to me, plot is not what makes a book unique but it's the writing style that does. And talking about the writing style? It didn't appeal to me. It could have been much much better and engaging. I was unable to connect to the characters and the plot was a bit too rushed for my liking.

So, the best part about this book was the shayris. I really like reading those. They were the only thing that actually kept me engaged and pushed me to finish the book.


The plot was really rushed up and I was unable to connect to the characters because of the same. Then the character development was really poor. Personally, I think that if the plot had been a little less rushed, with a bit more character development, the book would have been much more enjoyable.


Umm... so this is the toughest part. Frankly, I am not encouraging anyone to not to read this book. Everyone has their own preferences. I didn't like it so much but that doesn't mean that you won't like it too. So before deciding, read some more reviews. This book might be for you even if it wasn't not for me.

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: BOUND BY HONOR BY CORA REILLY

Born into one of the leading Mob families in Chicago, Aria Scuderi struggles to find her own path in a world where no choices are given. Aria was only fifteen when her parents betrothed her to Luca – The Vice – Vitiello, the oldest son of the head of the New York Cosa Nostra to ensure peace between the two families. 

Now with eighteen, the day Aria has been dreading for years is looming dangerously: her wedding to Luca. 
Aria is terrified of marrying a man she hardly knows, especially someone like Luca who got his nickname ‘the Vice’ for crushing a man’s throat with his bare hands. Luca might be one of the most sought after men in New York thanks to his good looks, wealth and predator-like charisma that radiates power, but the society girls throwing themselves at him don’t know what Aria does: that the bad boy aura isn’t just a game; blood and death lurk beneath Luca’s striking gray eyes and arrogant smile.

In her world a handsome exterior often hides the monster within; a monster who ca…

Review: Every Time It Rains by Nikita Singh

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.
