Book blurb:

When in love, you tend to take each other for granted, and sometimes, that can cost you a lifetime of togetherness . . .
Ronnie knew that his first crush was way out of his league, and yet he pursued and wooed Adira. Shyly and from a distance in the beginning, and more persuasively later. He couldn’t believe it when the beautiful Adira actually began to reciprocate, falling in love with him for his simplicity and honesty.

Slowly, as they get close and comfortable with each other, life takes on another hue. From truly magical it becomes routine. There are fights and then making-up sessions-a clash of egos and doubts.

Things begin to change for the worst.

It is too late.
Ronnie and Adira will probably never find their forever after . . .

My review:

“Something I never told you” by Shravya Bhinder is a story of a boy Raunak aka Ronnie who falls in “love at first sight” with Adira. She stays at Ronnie’ grandma’s as PG. It was not very easy for Ronnie afterall to express what he felt for her until they met again in the same company for work and went to Melbourne for their project .

They didn’t see each other again for a while but this time they were more in love with each other and if it make this true that ” distance makes the love grow stronger ” then yes, it did. Everything was going very fine, they were enjoying their lives until Adira’s mother came to know about Ronnie. She disliked him and this was the reason that led to the fights and arguments between Adira and Ronnie. Raunak started taking Adira for granted .Things began to change for the worst.

What really did happen? Did they both finally ended up together? Or were they drifted apart? This book is crafted around the twisted love of Raunak and Adira.

Narration and Characterization- Narration is lucid with simple read. Character development was decent but Adira’s character could have been more emphasised. I personally felt the book talked more of Raunak and less of Adira. Also, there were some grammatical error that can be ignored. Overall a pretty good love story with decent read.
