Review: First look of the cover and the title clearly indicates an intense love story. The blurb is simple and made you urge to read the book. All the characters were well defined by the Author and played an important role in the story. I just loved the romance between Aditi and Neel. It’s true Love when becomes obsession destroys life. That is what Author and indicated in the book. For Ranadeep Ria was an obsession and for Ria Neel was an obsession. The Prologue itself created so much interest to read the book. I enjoyed the book so much that I had finished it in two days at a stretch. I just love the way two people sacrificed their love for each other. It’s true love is without ownership on each other. Vinit had wonderfully narrated the story. I enjoyed reading the way, Neel had celebrated Aditi’s birthday and the way he had fulfilled her dream of visiting Hills. It was truly beautiful love. The climax left tears in my eyes. Overall a nice read. Recommended to all those who love to read, love stories.
Drawback: The end was in a rush. I wanted to read more. Rest It was a good and beautiful book. All the best Vinit….
