The Blurb:

Priya’s idyllic world turns upside down when she realizes her husband considers her dead weight after stripping her off her inheritance for his ambitions and lavish lifestyle. 

Instantly attracted to Priya, Abhimanyu knows getting involved with a married woman is inviting trouble. But despite common sense, cautions and hesitations, he is drawn to help her. 

Happily ever after has become a myth for Priya and trying to keep the relationship platonic is becoming more and more difficult for Abhimanyu. 

In the tussle between ethics, fears and desires... will Priya embrace a second chance at happiness?

My Review:

Characters:

       Meet Priya, a fierce, beautiful and independent young lady from Delhi who is the protagonist of the story. Priya is a software engineer who loves her job. A damsel in distress and yet a fierce lady who doesn't go down without a fight; that is Priya Mathur for you.

       Meet Abhimanyu Malhotra, aka Abhi, is very successful at the age of 28 and is an eligible bachelor. Hot and dashing, he has many girls falling for him but his heart skips a beat whenever he meets Priya. An awesome cook, a gentle soul, the knight without shining armor (wink) and a dependable friend; that is Abhi for you.

Plot:

       When Abhi sees Priya at the pub, for him it is love at first sight. He hadn't felt this strongly for anyone in his entire life but when he finds out that Priya is married, his heart is crushed. Though he convinces himself that it was nothing more than an instant attraction and he would stay away from her, Priya's thoughts and her face keep invading his mind.

       Torn from the news of her husband Sameer cheating on her, the last thing Priya want is attention from another male. When Sameer asks for a divorce, Priya is not ready for it. All she wants is to get back with him somehow and stay away from Abhimanyu. Or at least that is what she thinks.

       But when destiny throws them together, their resolves waver. So close, yet so far, they fight the attraction that they feel for each other. Priya, haunted by her past, isn't ready to place her trust on anyone again. Does that mean she will never be able to trust Abhi? Will she be able to look past her troubled past and listen to her heart? Will she be able to take the second chance at happiness that life has given her?

Things I Liked:

       The story is narrated from both Priya and Abhi's view point, making it all more interesting. The narration is smooth and the language easy to read.

       I liked the way the characters are portrayed. Priya, though troubled and broken, has a fierceness and a streak of self esteem that makes the readers like her instantly. Abhi, with is chivalry and magnificent culinary skills, doesn't take long to leave an impression either. Aditi and Rahul's banters, their loyalty to their friends and Komal's bubbly ways all make the story more fun to read.

       I also like the court scene and Priya's curt and precise answers and of course the slap and the epic tagline ;) (Oh! I am not giving out anything more)

Things I Disliked:

       I wish there was little more about Aditi and Rahul or at least what would happen to them in the end. A few minor typos were there but nothing major to put off the reader.

Verdict:

       For a debut author, Ruchi has done a great job. Take 2 is a light and breezy read that you will love. Pick it up if you are a romance lover. You won't regret it!

My Rating: 4/5 Stars!!

Until the next review,
Keep Reading :)

Love,
Swathi :)
