My rating: 3 of 5 stars
Prince charming meets plain Jane (or she thinks so). They fall in love and afterwards do they live happily ever after? Read this to know the answer.
Bharat is a handsome highly sought after model. He meets Dia in an after event party and they end up in bed. This is a love at first sight. He has no contact information of Dia and desperately misses her. She has his number, but she is too insecure by all his glamour, to contact him. She tells her dilemma to her sister, Pia thus:
“Actually Pia, Bharat has the reputation of being a Casanova. Even he admitted to it when I met him first. Though he insists that he’s changed since he met me and is in love with me, I’m still not sure about him. What if he’s confusing lust for love?”
Will they end up together??
Sundari’s writing is brisk. The story moves at a fast pace though nothing much happens. The story starts and ends with hot steamy scenes and there is reference to erotic desires/ acts throughout the book.
There is nothing much to say and the tale is pretty straightforward. The characters are not well developed and there are many contradictions in the behavior patterns. They believe in free sex but at the same time worry about family values and lust or love. Dia has no qualms in going to bed with a stranger in first meeting but when the same person asks to visit her home she is apprehensive. Why because she has not told her parents. Bharat has three brothers Ram, Laxman and his cousin Shatru. They are also family men and still Bharat don’t do virgins. This is very confusing and hypocritical. Sex scenes and references are way too much then required and that seems forced. It is like 18th century India meets 21st century America.
This is book for lovers for light steamy romance. All in all a good time pass.
I give the book 3/ 5 stars.
Where to buy:
Bharat is the elder of the Maheshwari twins. Being a super model, he travels from Jaipur to Mumbai to Delhi, modelling for high-end brands and playing show stopper during fashion shows. Clothes, jewellery, glares, briefs – you name it and Bharat Maheshwari models for it.
Dia Mathur is a management trainee based in Mumbai. She’s surprised to find herself at an after event party hosted by a major fashion label, thanks to her best friend. That’s where she meets Bharat, completely unaware of his claim to fame.
Sparks sizzle and they get together instantaneously. But things fall apart when Dia realises that Bharat is quite the Casanova and might not make for a life partner. She disappears from his life...
...to surface again two years later, at no place other than his family’s drawing room in Jaipur. Will the Casanova turn a new leaf? Or will Dia have to play second, third or fourth fiddle to every gorgeous model who comes into his life?

About the author:
Sundari Venkatraman is an indie author who has 19 titles to her name, all Top 100 Bestsellers on Amazon India, Amazon USA, Amazon UK, Amazon Canada and Amazon Australia in both romance as well as Asian Drama categories. Her latest hot romances have all been on #1Bestseller slot in Amazon India for over a month.
Even as a kid, Sundari absolutely loved the ‘lived happily ever after’ syndrome as she grew up reading all the fairy tales she could lay her hands on, Phantom comics, Mandrake comics and the like. It was always about good triumphing over evil and a happy end.
Soon, into her teens, Sundari switched her attention from fairy tales to Mills & Boon. While she loved reading both of these, she kept visualising what would have happened if there were similar situations happening in India; to a local hero and heroine. Her imagination took flight and she always lived in a rosy cocoon of romance over the years.
Then came the writing – a true bolt out of the blue! And Sundari Venkatraman has never looked back.
