Verdict: ☆☆☆☆ a very well written book, simple language and a debatable topic to read with a wonderful narration. I could not stop the book till I finished it at one stretch… A must read book for all the women and men.

About the book: Is there an acid test to gauge the success of a relationship?
Is it right to carry on in an unhealthy relationship with no conjugal bliss, or look for an alternate path?
Rihana is an adventurous and free-spirited girl, until she marries Veer, an eligible bachelor who comes from a wealthy family. While they appear 'happily married', their strong personalities are at odds. Veer, for the most part, is insensitive to Rihanas physical and emotional needs, straining the relationship and leaving her feeling incomplete.
Caught between the devil and the deep sea, Rihana has to now decide whether to walk out of her marriage and be a victim of society's ridicule, or compromise on her physical needs, which for her are the foundation for a healthy marital bond.
Can they work out their differences? Will Veer give her what she desires, or push her to do something desperate and scandalous?
Review: Firstly, I appreciate the Author Bhaavna for taking such an interesting and important concept for her debut book. The cover and title of the book is so deep and attractive that urged me to purchase this book and read it. The blurb is simple which clearly indicates about the struggle and journey of the main character Rihana. The author had beautifully narrated the story. Usually I take a break while reading a book but this book was so interesting that without taking the break, I finished it at a stretch. Each and every chapter unfolds a new struggle and difficulties in the Protagonist’s life and the way she handled it was commendable. The story concept was based on the practical life situation. It is true when a man commits a mistake society forgives him and when a women commits a mistake, it is considered as a sin. The climax was superbly interesting. All the emotions were beautifully explained by the author. Whether love, passion, sex all were balance. Overall a nice read and every one should read it. I am sure they will love it.
