REVIEW | Cupid Is Complicated By Namita Bajaj

--Blurb--
She was a dreamer, 
He, a man of virtue,
She was a believer, 
He, a follower of faith,
She believed in destiny, 
and he, in her…

Their hearts beat in amalgamation the moment they had set their eyes on each other. It wasn't love at first sight, it was more. It was finding ‘home’ at first sight. As the last of teenage years hit their door, Naman and Dhwani found each other on the first day of their college. A chocolaty, teenage romance could have brewed, but she chose to keep it at bay until she knew herself better. He? He chose to wait until her heart let him in. The possibility of loving someone without any conditions, obligations, or even acknowledgment could seem unreal. But is true love all about living, breathing, and being with that one person? 
What if, you are not meant to be? Is that not Love at all? 
A story that will tug at your heartstrings like never before, a story that will make you wonder what ‘hope’ is all about; here is a story that will make you want to rethink - what ‘LOVE’ really is.

*Thanks to the Publisher for a review copy.*
(All opinions are my own)
Namita Bajaj brings her readers yet another heartwarming read. 
A tale of first love and first heartbreak.
'Cupid is complicated' revolves around the college buddies, Naman and Dhwani. They are best friends, always inseparable but deep-down they both want more. 

'Naman and Dhwani were two souls connected by the universe. Their journey was not of now. It had commenced the moment their souls had gone alive.'

They both have immense love for each other but they spiral into certain situations that ultimately break them apart.

'Hold my soul with yours. And Then Naman, never leave, ever'!

People might love one another to death but cupid is complicated. Sometimes we are just not meant to be together and the love never dies, it just resides somewhere deep within us.

Uuf!! Just getting my emotions under control.


Cupid is complicated takes the readers on an emotional rollercoaster and very aptly describes the troubled teenage emotions. As we have all been there, so this story was quite relatable and it did hit a weak spot in my case.

So the story started off great, all lovey-dovey, full of cute and blushy moments, but halfway around comes the twist that made me bawl like a baby and I was like Why? Why? Why did you have to do this? 



But then towards the ending, I realized that we cannot always expect fairytale endings, sometimes realism is much needed but that doesn't mean that I didn't want a different ending!

Talking about storytelling, what must I say? I love how Namita writes. She is just perfect and knows how to instill life in her words.

The plot is quite simple with a realistic touch to it. Characters are well developed. No complaints from my side.

The last chapter of the book did make me cry but after talking to the author about the ending, I came on terms with it.

So people, if this book sounds like your cup of tea, grab a copy, read it and share your opinions with me.
Happy Reading!

Five Things 'FIVE FEET APART' Taught Us

'Five Feet Apart' is an American Romantic Drama,  inspired by a real-life couple Dalton and Katie Prager, who both suffered from  cystic fibrosis . As you all know that I'm not a movie person, I'd choose books anytime over movies but as I am going through 'Reader's Slump' so I decided to watch Netflix and guess what? I found this treasure. This movie impacted me greatly so I decided to share all my takings with you all. Let's start! 1. Live Big because life don't give us enough chances. 2. Take risks , you never know which moment is your last.  3. Love! Don't be scared of it. Loving won't kill you but not doing it will surely kill a part of you. 4. Take chances! We can die today, we can die tomorrow but we can also make our life worth living. 5. Breathe! Take a deep breath and enjoy your today. We are all on borrowed time. Instead of focusing on making your tomorrow good, make your today even better.

ARC Review-- Trophy Wife by Alessandra Torre

Everyone in Nashville knows Nathan Dumont. That’s what happens when you develop half a town and sleep with the rest.  Four years ago, his fiancee disappeared.  Last night, he proposed to me. I had wanted to escape my life, the seedy strip club and the mountain of bills. I had seized the opportunity to live in a mansion, fill my days with country clubs and caviar, my nights with romance and sex. Maybe I should have done my homework first. Me Before Reading:- Me After Reading:- After reading Hollywood Dirt and Love in Lingerie by AT, I had become her die hard fan so naturally I had some great expectations from Trophy wife. After reading the Blurb I was really excited to read the book but as soon as I started with it, all of my expectations just went into sort and I was left a little disheartened. I haven't read the prior version not this book but I was damn sure that I was hoiya to like this one, the title alone intrigued me but I guess I was wrong

REVIEW: Broken Knight by L.J. Shen

Not all love stories are written the same way. Ours had torn chapters, missing paragraphs, and a bittersweet ending. Luna Rexroth is everyone’s favorite wallflower. Sweet. Caring. Charitable. Quiet. Fake. Underneath the meek, tomboy exterior everyone loves (yet pities) is a girl who knows exactly what, and who, she wants—namely, the boy from the treehouse who taught her how to curse in sign language. Who taught her how to laugh. To live. To love. Knight Cole is everyone’s favorite football hero. Gorgeous. Athletic. Rugged. Popular. Liar. This daredevil hell-raiser could knock you up with his gaze alone, but he only has eyes for the girl across the street: Luna. But Luna is not who she used to be. She doesn’t need his protection anymore. When life throws a curveball at All Saints’ golden boy, he’s forced to realize not all knights are heroes. Sometimes, the greatest love stories flourish in tragedy TITLE- Broken Knight AUTHOR- L.J. Shen FORMAT- E

BOOK REVIEW: BOUND BY VENGEANCE(born in blood mafia chronicles #5 ) BY CORA REILLY

Growl He’d never had something to himself, never even dared to dream about owning something so precious. He was the unwanted bastard son who’d always had to content himself with the leftovers of others. And now they’d given him what only a few weeks ago had been out of his reach, someone he wasn’t even allowed to admire from afar, one of their most prized possessions. Thrown at his feet because he was who he was because they were certain he would break her. He was her punishment, a fate worse than death, a way to deliver the ultimate punishment to her father who had displeased them so greatly. Cara She had always been the good girl. It didn’t protect her. She didn’t know his real name. People called him Growl to his face and the Bastard behind his back. Both were names he couldn’t possibly have chosen for himself. His eyes were empty, a mirror to throw back her own fear at her. He was a brutal hand of the Las Vegas Camorra. And now she was at his mercy.
