BOOK REVIEW :Just Six Evenings by Tanmay Dubey

What if the course of your life, and your love, is determined by just six evenings? Atul Shukla, a young, successful executive, has been arrested by the Gurgaon police. As he attempts to find some comfort in the dark confines of his cell, Atul revisits his life and the six evenings that changed its course. Eight years ago, while working in Bhopal, Atul had met the beautiful and intelligent Priya on a train, DDLJ style. When it turned out that she was in his city for only six days, he decided to woo her in that fleeting period of time. But fate had other plans in store, and Atul and Priya were torn apart by lust and betrayal, seemingly forever. Years later, Atul and Priya meet once again for six days, while they are both navigating the murky underbelly of the modern corporate world. And this time it's not just their love at stake, but their careers, and their future as well. Will Atul and Priya manage to give love a second chance? Or will corporate greed destroy their chance for a happy ending? Just Six Evenings is a modern-day tale of love, lust and ambition in a corporate India that shines at the expense of the dreams it tramples under its feet.

Summary of the book :- 
Atul Shukla, a hot shot executive in an MNC is arrested by Gurgaon police. 8 years ago he was a sales executive in an electronic retail shop. But 'Just Six Evenings' changed the course of his life.
He is swathed in the dirty underbelly of corporate world and he placed the game of his life where everything is at stake; his love, his friends and his career. Will he lose them in six evenings?
Witness the roller coaster story of ambition, love, lust, deceit, passion, friendship and spiritual attainment where Angel and Devil are the two facets of the same coin.

I couldn't find any flaws in the book ,everything is perfect.
The love story is sweet .
I would have given this book 3 stars ,but the author added first & the last chapter. 
After reading it, i make my mind to give 4 stars ,because the author has added elements of spirituality, sense of humour, cooperate crime & there are  twists & turns...which makes it something different from the rests of the book.

Overall, i would like to give this book 4 out of 5 stars.
