Love Aptually - Book Review

Title: Love Aptually
Author: Pooja Nair
Publisher: Frog Books


The Blurb:

"Can real love ever blossom amidst a plethora of virtual chat apps and widgets? Can the mechanical swipes and eager clicks on the phone ever substitute the pleasures of a real-life chance encounter? For Aayushi, it all begins with an idle flickering message on her app's inbox, from a guy named Ayaan. This leads to an affair where the two discover a deep attraction for each other. However, Aayushi ends the relationship rather abruptly. Three years later, Aayushi unexpectedly bumps into Ayaan in her Singapore office. His changed behaviour perplexes her and she tries to find out if Ayaan had ever loved her the way she imagined love to be. She ends up uncovering revelations galore, and is finally led to a simple truth. Will this change her romantic notions forever or reaffirm her faith in love? " 

My Review:

       Aayushi was in a relationship when her paths first crossed with Ayaan. She lies about being in a relationship and continues chatting with Ayaan on the app where they became friends. Slowly the bond between then grows deeper and Aayushi grows attached to him. When they finally met, Ayaan professes his lover for Aayushi and Aayushi leaves him as she couldn't cope up with the guilt of lying to him.

      Fast forward to the future: Aayushi is in the middle of a business meeting when she sees Ayaan for the first time after so many years. She is shocked, confused and out of words due to his sudden appearance in her life. As she contemplates various possibilities of why Ayaan could be there, she finds out that he is a team mate and they have to work together. This paves way to the bubbling up of a new love story or rekindling of the old relation. The road though, is not easy. Will Ayaan and Aayushi make it work? Read to find out!

       The story is simple and relatable. The language used is simple. There were some typos which could be over looked. The characters seem real and thus maintain the interest of the readers in the story.  The pace was medium and sometimes I lost interest in between the story but the pace was picked up soon. Overall it was a light read. I recommend it to youngsters who like reading love stories.

My Rating:

3.5 / 5 Stars!!

Until the next review,
Keep Reading :)

Love,
Starry Eyed Reader :)

Wrong Means Right End  
by 
Varsha Dixit 


Blurb 
Readers fell in love with Sneha and Nandini, two best friends who stuck to each other through heartbreak and joy in the bestselling novel, Right Fit Wrong Shoe. Now they are back in a delightful sequel that follows the two women as they begin the next phase of their lives in Mumbai.

After a failed marriage, Sneha, a single working mom, has no time, or inclination, for love. She resists every matchmaking attempt made by the overzealous Nandini, married to industrialist Aditya. But then the past intrudes in the form of the gorgeous and rich, Nikhil, who brings along Gayatri to break-up her ex-fiance, Aditya's marriage. Sneha enlists Nikhil's help to salvage the situation. But how does she even talk to a man who clearly loathes her? As Nikhil and Sneha try to grapple with their egos and combustible chemistry, love blossoms.

Wrong Means Right End, an exuberant story about love and friendship, is filled with surprises and a wicked twist at every turn.

My Review:

Wrong Means Right End is a sequel to Right Fit Wrong Shoe, though both can be read as standalone novels. This book is the story of Sneha, who was introduced as Nandini's friend in Right Fit Wrong Shoe, In this book, Sneha is divorced and has moved to Mumbai with her baby boy Advey and Amla, her maid. Nandini's numerous attempts at match making has left Sneha in despair. It is during such time she meets Nikhil Chandel.

Sneha and Nikhil aren't what you usually call BFFs but a common goal brings them together - saving Nandini's marriage from Aditya's Ex-Fiancee. Now this is my favorite part of the story, as sparks fly between Sneha and Nikhil. Their chemistry and the story that follows is worth the wait it took for the romance to build up.

The language, the humour and the narration all makes this novel a perfect read for romance lovers. Waiting for more books from Varsha :)

My Rating:
4.5/5 Stars!!
