Review: The cover with two people walking in the rain is beautifully designed and perfectly suited the Title. I loved to read romantic love stories and this book really touched my heart. As per Blurb, This book contains all the emotions. One can find Love, sadness and romance perfectly. The love between Saloni and Sunny clearly touched my heart. There are some points which will make you cry also if you are an emotional person. The fate which turned Saloni into Prostitute was completely heart touching moment. The last part of the book where sunny and saloni got united again was a beautiful moment. Their Childhood love and friendship was very sweet and it will remain in your heart forever. I myself love the rains and the way Author had mentioned love and rain together was beautiful. The Prologue was well written which itself urged you to read the whole book. The book was simple and gripping. One line which Sandy told Sunny was beautifully written and it touched my heart completely:
“It's beyond your consciousness that your soul lingers with the person you love and hence your mood will affect the one you love. This is the reason why you sometimes sense your mood changing mysteriously with no reason”
Drawback: There are some parts of the chapter, which Author had stretched too much and it can be avoided. Rest as a debut author he had done a commendable job and I would love to read more from the Author. All those who love to read, love stories can read this book.
Good luck Author. J
