It s in its very nature to gatecrash into our lives. Standing face-to-face with love she finds herself asking Is this love right? The answer is not simple. It never was . . . This intense love story will shake every belief you ve ever had about love. About the Author Ravinder Singh is the bestselling author of I Too Had a Love Story Can Love Happen Twice? Like It Happened Yesterday and Your Dreams Are Mine Now.
Finally completed this new book of Ravinder Singh. As expected the author is completely changed. I didn't find that Ravinder Singh who had made me cry with his first novel "I Too Had a Love Story" around 5 years ago. Its sequel was quite emotional too but from last year his novels are changing. Just like his last novel "Your Dreams are Mine Now" this one too is totally based on logic and yes it's hell boring.
Honestly speaking there's no story in it, it's all about how one should deal with the situation if he or she is an extramarital affair. Yes it's actually tantamount to those bollywood movies of the 90s but there's a logical twist. Instead of making one guilty the author has logically solved the problem. In short the author has showed us that being american by dress isn't enough we need to be Americanized from our heart. And if you can't accept extramarital affair there is this character Manvika who'll produce logic for you to fight your thoughts.
Basically this isn't like John Green's books where the characters weave the story, this isn't like Nicholas Spark's "Safe Heavens" either where problems are revealed with time, here the knot already exists and the author has thrown three characters to disentangle it. You can predict the entire story from the very first page and at times the book is quite monotonous except a few places where the author has spoken about several aspects of gym ( last year i saw him uploading a picture in gym vests, i guess since then he has joined gym and as writers are the mirrors of society the entire gym is reflected in his book. He has even dedicated this book to his gym instructor. Sometimes you may feel that this book is all about gym only.). So, why this book got published ? Simple because it's based on a grave problem of our society.
This book can be a solution to our rising divorce problem but as a romantic novel , no this book isn't up to the mark and i would suggest not to buy this book unless you're going crazy to solve your extramarital relationship. A few noticeable things in this book is it's concept of 'attraction' and 'love' and its concept of 'society' ( If you want to know these concepts, and i guess you should know then you can inbox me freely)
P.S- This review is my own opinion and it may differ with yours.
