Book Review of His Drunken Wife by Sundari Venkatraman

(Marriages Made in India Book #2)
Sundari Venkatraman
The badass Shikha is startled when the nerdy Abhimanyu proposes marriage. She loves… herself, and Abhimanyu doesn’t figure on her list anywhere. For Abhimanyu, however, it was love at first sight when Shikha walked into RS Software, where the two of them work. 
When Abhimanyu shows her that he just might be rich enough for her, a pleasantly surprised Shikha accepts his marriage proposal and moves into his swanky apartment. 
But it looks like the love is all from only Abhi’s side as Shikha continues to drink herself crazy. Yeah, even at their wedding party. 
And then Abhi sets out on a honeymoon to Thailand with His Drunken Wife… 
*MARRIAGES MADE IN INDIA is a five-novella series that revolves around the characters you have met in The Runaway Bridegroom.

                                       Book Review 

His Drunken Wife by Sundari Venkatraman is a good read book .This story is based out of the characters from the book called   ‘The Runaway Bridegroom’.By now you all must be aware of sundari′s  writings . The plot  of this story is like all other romantic stories .

The lead characters are always have conflicting emotions contrary to their true nature Here Sundari has created a female beast and a somber male human being who tries to tame her .

Shikha and Abhi   are gracefully penned by her  .All I   can  say about this book “Its one time good read ”.

The pace of the book is normal .

Overall the book is recommended read .

I love  Abhi cooking for his wife.
The cover of book could have been beautified with brighter colors ..and hence 3 coloured lens for this book .

Inconvenient Relations (Inconvenient Relations #1) by Simi K. Rao


Shaan Ahuja found himself bowing to tradition and agreeing to an arranged marriage to the beautiful Ruhi Sharma. He went through the motions but had no intention of carrying through on his vows. His last foray into matters of the heart with an American girl had left him scarred and unwilling to try again. Thoroughly disillusioned and disgruntled he wasted no time in making his intentions clear to Ruhi on their wedding night. But, he was completely unprepared for what his new wife had in mind.

This multi-cultural contemporary romance story of an arranged marriage is a beautiful blending of showing the Indian and American cultures. Readers will learn more about the Indian heritage and the romance that happens behind closed doors in an Indian relationship in Simi K. Rao’s Inconvenient Relations. This coming of age story about true love explores multi-cultural issues.



My Review :

Inconvenient Relations is pre queal to Now and Forever story .It has been beautifully written by Simi .

The Indian Parents fear of sending their only child abroad , Shaan awkwardness of telling Ruhi that somebody  else  is there in his life .Ruhi determination  to set things right and teach him a lesson .

The emotional tug of war is amazing to read .

I  found Shaan cute  when  he shows  his possessive streaks ..towards Ruhi 

And finally their forever kisses .

Love You Shaan 

6  Brides for this book .Bonus point of Surjit for expressing what autism actually is  .I  wish the author throws some light on children suffering with cerebral palsy  in her next book .

Book Review of With You I dance




Meera Sagar had everything—the perfect job as a principal ballerina (for a prestigious New York ballet company) and a man who loved her as much as she loved him. But tragedy struck on the night before her biggest performance, forcing her to do the one thing she never wanted to do—come back home. To Mumbai.

Now, a year later, Meera is still trying to pick up the pieces, while fending off marriage proposals from her well-meaning but traditional Gujarati family, and figure life out all over again. By starting a ballet school in Mumbai. But she has two problems. One, she doesn’t know anything about running a business. And two, she can’t dance. Not anymore.

Enter . . .

Abeer Goswami. Hotshot junior partner at a South Bombay law firm and a man nursing a broken heart. When he meets Meera again, the woman who left him, he tries his hardest to be her friend, to help her . . . and not let the past get in the way.

And then . . .

There is the sexy Zoya Sehgal. Meera’s only friend in the city and the woman Abeer is currently seeing. They say triangles have pointy edges, for a reason. Will Meera find a new dream in her ballet school? Can Abeer and Meera find their way back to each other again? And, most important, has Meera danced for the last time?

With you I dance is a warm, funny, at times heart-rending, love story of second chances, true love, and finding yourself when your dearest dream has vanished.

 Book Review 

With You I Dance  by Aarti V Raman  is good book to read . It is 3rd or 4th book( I do not know  must about it)   which has traditionally published .I love Aarti ′s style of conveying stories but in this book I  found it difficult understand Meera ′s behaviour  not even once I  have seen her shed tear which I  feel has made the female look like  an alien .And what is this ,Meera does not feel anything for Abeer  but she wants him  .Abeer on the other hand made me feel like a lazy  smart ass  whose only mission is to see  Meera′s happiness .

I  feel there was no dynamism in both the lead characters  as they did not allow nature to heal their broken hearts .They wanted to do things by taking a slight revenge .

Apart from these flaws I  love Meera′s respect towards her family especially Zoya who helps Meera to start her own dance academy despite certain issues  .

I  liked Zoya ‘s and Niketu′s character  they are quiet interesting to read without these character the book would not have won million of hearts .All in All I  can say With You I dance is excellent  book  to read during Diwali holidays .

Do read this book for Abeer′s smile and kisses he shares with Meera .

Book Review of Destiny Embraces by P.G.Van


Blurb :

“You like that too? It drives me nuts when you run your stubble against my neck”. I said my voice muffled against his burning skin.
“Baby, I want you now”. He said with a deep hunger in his voice and added pulling my lips to his, “now, here. Let’s finish what we started this morning”.

Sameera was having the best time of her life, after getting engaged to Nick, her childhood friend and now her fiancée who has promised to love her endlessly.
Nick is ready to tie the knot but Sameera wants to keep her promise to the Rajput family, who is also Nick’s extended family.

In spite all the pressure from all directions to get married to Nick while they are in India, Sameera tries to hold her ground so she can stick to her plan.

Sameera and Nick experience shocking and surprising incidents and wonder if they were random or if they are linked to their destiny.
Follow Sameera and Nick’s life as they enter a new phase of their relationship, as their destiny embraces them to answer the questions that have haunted two families for decades.

Will Sameera and Nick solve the mystery behind a love story that happened decades before they were born?

Note: This book is part of a series and can be considered a stand along. The book 1 is all about how destiny brings Nick and Sameera back together and book 2 is what happens after they get engaged.

Book Review :

Destiny Embraces is the continuation of Nick and Sam love story as they try reaching new heights.

Now that both of them are madly in love with each other and they almost get married but…the head of the female lead Sam does not allow this to happen so … soon since she has been fighting her past demons and rekindling her friendship with royals who were searching for her and her sister Nate keeping the delicate thread of their dead father’s history in mind .The author has penned this story very well by giving equal importance to all her characters.


I love Nick’s stubbornness which I found in the initial pages of her book.


Their emotions and passionate encounters have moved me

Finally the ending where Samarat and Rhea get hitched and their sweet and humorous romantic beginning     caught my attention for the longest time. 

5 hot lip sticks  for this book.

❤ you PG Van!
