Honestly, I do not know from where I should start. This was the first book I read on my all new Kindle. And the excitement was already high. I started the book by around 10pm and finished by 1.40am. It simply means I was hooked from the word go! I couldn’t restrict my elation and had to let the author know what I felt about the book.
- To begin with, it was a fresh approach. Right from the title of the book to the name of the protagonist (who has the name Eila!), it was delightfully different.
- The language- spectacular! Again, having read so many Indian author books, this was a delight to read. Crisp, original and effortlessly flowing narration.
- This is a fast-paced world and all you see and read are also relationships in haste. A boy meets girl and the next thing you know is that they are in bed together. Where is the classic romance? The intimacy of the first touch, his murmur against her lips, butterflies in the stomach? Love where the reader longs for the guy to just hold her hand? Pretty hard to find, eh? But here it is, all wrapped in a beautiful red bow. And Oh Boy! Like a teenager, I fell in love with Brett White <3
- Of course the cultural differences. The author has beautifully portrayed the characters of Brett White and Eila without a tinge of favoritism. There is no one statement in the book where she is biased against one culture.
- The relationship between Eila and her sister is nailed to perfection. All the characters are placed dead on.
- Oh the food!! Yumm. And the decorations at the hotel and club- mind-blowing description. (Cannot reveal more about them- spoiler alert, people!)
The purpose of Eila’s visit was to mend the broken ties. I would have loved to find a closure with the parents.
I’m the author of four books and the genre that I write is contemporary romance. Penning stories defines and completes me.I thinks of myself as a borderline obsessive-compulsive dreamer who thinks deep but writes light. A true ‘feel good’ junkie seeking quick fixes, I love a good laugh and a good book. A voracious reader of who dunit mysteries and legal dramas, I did sit down to pen a book on serial killers but finding it impossible to maim or kill anyone, even on paper, I penned a romantic story instead. Thus, I found my true calling – at least for the time being.Even though creativity is gender free, I feel blessed and enriched to be a woman.
