Review: Somewhere In A Song by Kavya Janani U.
I haven't read any book by Kavya Janani U. earlier but I am much impressed with the content she provided in this small piece of her writing. I would say she did a fantabulous job in this book.
The story starts with the lead character Emma Justin, a young hypnotherapist, who is is obsessed with a song composed by Kevin Roberts (Musician), there are two main reasons behind her obsession. First is Emma feels some familiar connection with the tune of the song & the Second is The singer, Sarah Jane Davies, sounds exactly like her, She had a conversation about this with her maid Laura, who had the unique talent of raising both her eyebrows simultaneously.
Emma did her best to find Sarah Jane Davies but somehow she fails in her search for Sarah Jane Davies. actually, Sarah Jane has disappeared without a trace after recording the song. neither Kevin Roberts wanted to discuss Sarah Jane in public in many interviews many of media person asked about Sarah Jane but whenever Kevin got the question about Sarah Jane he ends the interview without answering the remaining question.
One day Kevin Reveals something very important to the media in the interview on Y TV which changed the life of Emma.
He disclosed the secret how he started and he mentioned that five years back when he was trying his luck by composing some tracks and uploading that on online music store where people can listen to it. and during that period of the time, one girl visited his studio, and he also mentioned that that girl said that she is the big fan of him. and she had prepared one rough tune for him. she played that tune oh his Keyboard. and she left the place without telling her name neither he bothers to ask.
he used that tune with some modulations and adding effects and it took five years to him to bring out that tune as a song. Kevin also described how she was looking on that day and also mentioned that girls had a personal stereo of some unknown brand called "Shanio".
Here Emma was in shock as Kevin described her point to point all details. which completely matches with Emma and her Personal Stereo on which her Pets name was written which was "Shanio" and from this incident Emma's life changes. and she started taking Hypnotherapy session for herself.
What happens after that?

Blurb:  In every angel a demon hides, And in every demon, an angel strides. Neel is a self-proclaimed demon, a slave to his desires, putting at stake even the purest of relationships for it. He lives for himself, takes life as it comes, and considers people who love as emotional fools. When he first sets his eyes on his new landlady, a widow who is eleven years elder to him, all he can see is an opportunity. He has a plan to get rich and is working hard to achieve it, until he bumps into Pihu. She is an immature teenager who likes Neel for no apparent reason, and blindly believes that he is an angel who will take away all her life’s troubles. Neel hates Pihu for her unexplained obsession, and her being a hindrance in his plan, but her firm resolve to see a good person in him shakes Neel to the core. Will Pihu make a difference? Does inner transformation come to a man who has gone to a point of no return? A Girl to Remember is an emotional roller coaster which will make you believe that confession is the best punishment.

Review - Seductive Affair by Rishabh Puri

Title: Seductive Affair

Author: Rishabh Puri

Publisher:  Srishti Publisher

Pages: 184

Blurb: Prisha Khatri is a regular college graduate, focused on her career, desperate to finally move out of her parents’ house and freshly dumped by her successful fiancĂ©. When she lands a job at a prestigious media house, she’s glad to have something to take her mind off her heartbreak.

He’s travelling to a business conference for a story and doesn’t seem impressed by her involvement. But as soon as they’re out of the office, things change and it becomes clear that there is more to Rajesh’s trip than meets the eye. As Prisha is drawn into the story he’s trying to hide from their editor, their hunt for the story grows more intense and she finds herself growing closer to Rajesh. As their chemistry threatens to overwhelm them and Prisha is pulled deeper into the Seductive Affair, she must decide what matters most to her matters of the head or of the heart.

Review: Seductive Affair by Rishabh Puri

My second book from the same author. Cover of the book and title itself shows what you will get inside this book steamy tale of Prisha and Rajesh.

The author tried to do justice with the characters but from my point of view somewhere he fails to do I totally related with Prisha but not Rajesh. in the whole book, Rajesh was a puzzle to me. butPrisha, the lead character, was presented elegantly as a strong, determined and career-oriented young woman. I personally liked the way, Prisha took stand for her in various situations, whether with her boyfriend, ex, parents or even society.

and this type of book is so predictable. this book is so fast and you will read short, sweet and fast romance love in this book which at some places looks very unreal. Author has a good grip on narration and language but More work could have been done on character building. I would recommend others to read it too. For one time read.

This is the first time I am reading work of Preeti Shenoy.  I haven't read her any previous book in the past.
The book cover looks just gorgeous well designed by the Saurav Das.
Internal material of this book was much impressive for me while I was reading and damn sure all readers across the world or those who are looking for a genre like this will surely love this book.
The book is divided into five-part every part has something very interesting and relatable. all stories you will get in this book are from Preeti's Life and she narrated it very neatly She has beautifully narrated each chapter which is not a lengthy chapter.
you will see the five different parts in the book as follows -
The Parent Trap
Life, Love, and Laughter
Hey Brother!
Love A Little Stronger; and
Be The Best You Can Be
While reading this book I'hingve went to my childhood days for a short period of time and also laughed while remembering those weird things I had done in my childhood and teenage, and I am sure every good reader will feel this.
In short, I would say that this book is a perfect read for me.
