About The book: Love; is the most wonderful feeling in the world. When we hear 'Love', a cold wave passes through our body and faces of our loved ones start flashing in front of us.

'A little more than love', a collection of lovely short stories, gives us a new meaning of love. Love beyond boundaries; beyond the need to express it every time, beyond the need to shout and prove it every time. It portrays different opinion and point of love. Each story here is special; has its own value and outlook. Somewhere you will definitely find yourself connected to at least one of the stories here.
Review: As a reader, I am very fond of Love stories. Though as a reviewer I read all types of generes but Romantic books will always be close to my heart and If It is written beautifully then it will be Icing on the cake. The cover design of the book is mesmerizing and pleasing perfectly suited with the Title and Blurb. Thanks to “Book Bakers”. The best part of the Author Priyanka is she is best in describing emotions whether in poems or stories the reader get involved in the stories. So was I totally involed in the stories. I was connected with the emotions of the characters of the stories. Let’s discussed each story in detail:
i. Just foryou, My Love: A very beautiful love story between and girl and Boy. Sometimes love change you totally. That what happened to Dhuruv who changed from atheist to believer of God. Beautifully written
ii. The dumb me: Author had beautifully explained the meaning of love. Ruhi and Rohit’s relation touched my heart. When you are unware about love and someone explain you the meaning of love by his gestures is really beautiful.
iii. Guardian Angel: I just loved this story. Really touched my heart. One of my favourite story. The way Abhinav came as a light to Kiara and his aunt suffering from depression. They way he had made them smile really touched my heart. A nice story.
iv. Love was Hidden: It’s true there are fights between the couple but love is still there need some spark. Jyoti and shivam had beautifully handled it and had a lovely ending. Nice story.
v. Silent Emotions: A very emotional story. I Agree with the Author. Sometimes Love and relationship is more important then money. The way parul understood the importance of relationship was hearttouching and beautiful.
vi. BlindDate: it’s true if there are issues in the marriage between couples one should solve it immediately rather than making it complicated. The way Arnav had solved his issues with shamita by becoming virtual chat friend was interesting to read. I enjoyed it..
vii. The One Call: It’s true Love is more important then value, culture, traditions. If you love someone just forget the customs they are just for the society. Author had wonderfully explained in this story. Nicely written.
viii. Being Me: A nice relation between A stranger Latika and Aman. The emotions were well described.
ix. Love,Lost and found: It’s true Love is all around and Life is full of love one just have to search it. Shekher and Aditi’s love really touched your heart. I as a reader totally got involved with them. Beautifully written
x. The last Adventure: One of the most emotional story that will make you cry. Dia as a adventurous girl full of life lost her life was truly emotional. Loved it.
xi. Dear husband: Trust is the most important factor in a relationship and that is very nicely explained by the Author by Rohan and Ayesha’s relationship as a married couple. Nice story.
xii. Affair Online. Sometimes we run around outer beauty and forget the inner beauty. Love is based on inner beauty. Palak and Rikky’s relation will cleary explain this. Nicely done.
xiii. Downfall: A small doubt can ruined your relation, your career everything. A nice and sweet story…
All the stories were nice and interesting but my personal favourite were Guardian Angel and Love, Lost and found . One can read this book while travelling or sipping a coffee in a lazy Sunday Afternoon.
Drawback: Only some Editing mistakes were there which needs to be rectified.
All the best Priyanka. Loved to read more from your writings…..
