First look at the title and the cover and it gives a perfect feel of a Mills & Boons in making. The cover image with two young lovers and an eye catchy title to go with it the readers are in for some entertainment in the book. The blurb talks about a business tycoon and his life's dilemmas and his plans to get out of it. The blurb is a quick work and the story's essence has been concealed well to keep the curiosity of the readers at high.
The story is about Krish Dev son of business tycoon Kamal Kant Dev a.k.a KD who somehow gets hold of his dad's evil plans to solemnize a marriage without his consent with his business rival's daughter to strengthen his position in the market. Krish treads on a different path and goes for a bride hunting on his own and comes across Maya Shome who is an upcoming landscape designer. He throws the bait and gets hold of her and chalks out a plan of his own on which he works out things in his favor. But Maya has a plan of her own? She has revenge in her mind. What happens when two volatile people collide? Will their marriage last long? Who will be the winner among this chaos? Will Maya get what she waited for long. This is what the story is all about.
When it comes to romance, drama, emotions and mixing business with pleasure the story scores well. It has right amount of ingredients in to keep the readers hooked to it. The story has an element of fluid pace to it and is able to maintain both love & revenge as one till the end. The choice of words to describe few scenes is commendable. The first half is more interesting and gripping with regular encounters of Krish & Maya.
The story is predictable and lacks details which could have made the torrid past of Maya a better prospect. The end is too easy considering the plot of the book. The excitement in the second half is less. Some parts in the story look too plain and simple.
Overall it's a good story with the bonus of love & revenge in one. It might not turn out to be the most compelling books to read but still it has few elements of its own to make it an interesting prospect for romance readers.
3 OUT OF 5.
