First things first, Deepak Chopra is one of the most efficient non-fiction writers. I've heard great things about his books but as I am not so keen on non-fiction so I haven't read any of them. But guess what! One day I came across a title called Soulmate, written by Deepak Chopra and that too a fiction!! So I knew I had to read this and I just picked up this book.

The thing that attracted me to this book was its cover and blurb. The blurb sounded really promising. I had really high hopes for Soulmate but we don't always get what we want right? Soulmate was not as good as I expected it to be but it was also not that bad. So for me, it was an average i.e. an Okay-Okay read.

The store revolves around Dr. Raj Rabban who treats mentally upset patients. He is engaged to a self-sufficient and confident woman called Maya. Everything is on track but suddenly a chance encounter with Molly, a theatre artist, in a train changes his life.

Raj experiences an instant attraction towards Molly and his feelings are reciprocated by her. This marks the beginning of their intense love affair. They both are happy but Raj is still cheating on Maya and feels guilty. With time he comes clean and Maya forgives her.

Raj and Molly assuming a happily ever after starts planning a future but fate had other plans and Molly dies in an unfortunate accident.

From here starts the interesting part, no doubt, Molly is dead, but Raj still feels her presence around him. He feels her guiding him and leading him and he feels her living within him as his soulmate.

However, the plot was interesting and unique but it did take a lot of time to build up. The pace was really really slow. I even skipped certain areas as it was just too stretched out and slow. The writing style was good and impressive.


The best part was how Molly guides Raj to help his patients after death as his soulmate. This part was really intriguing and well written.

The thing I didn't really like about the book was Maya's reaction on finding out about Raj's deceive. She is depicted as a very efficient and confident woman but still, she forgives Raj just like that without any arguments. The cheating and deceiving are depicted as a very normal day to day activity without much thought in this book which really got on my nerves.

This book is perfect for those who like to read something related to spirituality with a hint of romance. 

Soulmate would have been so much better if the plot would have built at a moderate pace without the stretching of certain scenes.

Nevertheless, this book had its own good qualities and highlights. So everyone if you want something unique and believe in life after death within your loved one or the concept of soulmates this book is for you!!

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…
