Love is in the air again…this time it’s steamy, bold and manipulative!
Gayatri and Viraj both are products of childhood trauma. Yet they were able to survive, one because of her shrewdness and the other because of his genius. Rightfully Wrong Wrongfully Right, the final part in the best selling ‘Right and Wrong’ love trilogy is the story of these two damaged souls.
Gayatri Dutta, the poster child for rich spoiled diva is fighting to escape a life of servitude her tyrant father is hell bent on pushing her into. Her past string of failures have her backed against a wall. Lonely and desperate!
Viraj is a con who uses his genius to perpetuate his isolation. His life once of violence and abuse has left him cynical and cold. He shuns the society and its hypocrisies.
And then Gayatri and Viraj cross paths. She needs him and he despises her.
To Viraj, Gayatri, is the epitome of all that he despises, shallow, manipulative and the kind who uses her beauty as a weapon. Or is she?
Gayatri sees Viraj only as a means to an end. She is sure that Viraj with his nerdy demeanor, owlish glasses and crude behavior will be easy to manipulate and walk over. Only he isn’t!
This story is of Gayatri Dutta, who has also made her appearance in the first two books and is known for her ruthlessness, if I may put it subtle. From being a villian to now a protagonist, I was keen to read her side of the story.
Gayatri is young, witty, spontaneous, brave but also rich. Her father Dutta, a billionaire businessman aids her financially, but also picks on her, humiliating and leading her to a state of low self esteem. Her only solace is Nikhil Chandel, who cares for her as his little sister. Nikhil is married to Sneha who is best-friends with Nandini. These three, along with Aditya- Nandini’s husband/Gayathri’s ex makes a close-knit team. As Gayatri tries ways to break free and stand on her feet, her father decides to marry her off to a rich groom of his choice. Due to Gayatri’s ghastly ubiquity in their lives in the past, things seem a little awkward at first, but Nandini and Sneha plot to help Gayatri to be an independent woman.
And thus enters Viraj, a workaholic, cantankerous, non-socialite eccentric scientist who is now Gayatri’s boss. His troubled childhood is what makes him put up a callous exterior but Gayatri finds the kind soul in him. Sparks fly but she needs him as she tries to fend for herself. A sweet lass Sana also is now part of the game and fits in this love triangle.
Let me start with the book cover. Such a pretty thing- with the bright red color, those little hearts, wine glasses, champagne bottle and cupcakes! It is designed to attract one and all. The chapter titles? Hilarious, to say the least! How can an author name her chapters as Monkeys and Manuals, Asswipes or Pimp I am! That in itself brings about a smile, doesn’t it?
I loved the crazy mad scientist, Viraj and the quintessential vamp-turned diva Gayatri. Their chemistry is splendid and it is an absolute treat. This isn’t just a mushy romance . A genius scientist with a troubled childhood and a rich girl struggling to break free doesn’t seem like a match made in heaven. But the author has executed it so well that you ease into their lives as the story unfolds.
Of course, Sneha and Nandini has a pivotal role and their bond is something we all would want in life. The easy-going best-friends are indeed soul sisters that one can even complete a sentence before the other speaks it out. I loved their girly talks, the gossips and they make the perfect duo.
There were many instances were I couldn’t control my giggles and laughed out loud. The dialogues are an important part of the story, be it between the best friends or Viraj and Gayatri. The language is smooth and the writing brilliant. I so wish this story makes it to a brilliant Hollywood RomCom.
Do I Recommend? Seriously? Is that question even necessary?
Rating: By the excitement with which I’m reviewing this book, you would by now have guessed how much I loved it. It’s a shining 5 stars from me.
