My review:

A rom-com, woman-centric novel with clear narration. The story revolves around Udi Bose, who admires the meaning of her name. Udi is strong and puts her self-respect above all. For her success matters the most.

With fewer complex words and fair storyline, this book is about the lives of Udi-Garv and Rupali-Siddharth and their choices in life that hold the ultimate reins to everything their life depends on.

Even though I pretty much liked the narration but it could have been more lively. There were few grammatical errors that could have been easily rectified with adequate editing. Also, I wasn’t much elated with the climax. So, read it if you want a typical Indian bollywood romance and a very light read.
