They started off under strange condition. Things were complicated since the very beginning.

Read the heartwarming story of Khushi and Ashwin. Although they began as an impulsive couple, see how things changed for them. Experience the transition from teenage and crazy to adulthood and maturity. 




I received a copy from the author for an honest review. There was no compensation for this review and what follows is my honest opinion.

I wish I could say I liked this book. There are good things about them, but I couldn’t really get into the story itself.

The good? Well, the story is a contemporary romance between Khushi and Ashwin, two young adults in India. I couldn’t find errors in the grammatical or punctuation sense and that’s great. That said, I feel the story has great potential. The romance is there and the characters are sweet, but…

The bad? It was telling not showing. Now, I know that confuses people, but if you are reading this (which I’m assuming you are since you are here), this is me telling. I’m telling you I didn’t care for the book. I’m not showing. Showing helps the reader be in the book. However, I felt like I was listening to someone tell me a story and not being in the middle of the action.

It felt lacking, needless to say.

Because of that, I had to give it a two star. I couldn’t get into the story and stay with the characters. No matter how adorable and interesting the romance was. So, like I said, the book has potential.
