My View- The plot is fresh. The story moves in flashback. A kind of suspense is created in the very beginning to which the reader gets attached and feels like not leaving the story in between. In that way the novel is gripping.

The author has done a great job in weaving a love story around a young plot. The story is all about love. How far can one go in true love?

Neel is a simple guy who due to destiny or by coincidence become friends with Ranadeep, an influential person in the college. There is no one in the college who doesn’t know about Ranadeep. They become like brothers. Neel falls in love with Aditi, his classmate. Everything is going happy in the life of this trio until Ria enters and Ranadeep falls for her. But destiny has something else in making and Neel is found guilty for Ria’s murder.

Read on the story to find out what will Ranadeep do when he will find that his best friend has killed his lady love. Will he be able to forgive him? Is Neel really the murderer? What will Aditi do to save Neel’s life?Will Neel and Aditi ever come together? What will happen to Ranadeep then?

Author has done a great job in keeping the characters together, but only thing is somewhere I feel the story is somewhat like a movie. The language is simple and the characters sketch are apt.

About the Author– Vinit K. Bansal began his journey as a poet and soon, he graduated as prolific author and editor of national repute.

His first novel ‘I am Heartless’ created a sensation in the Indian writing industry and is widely considered as one of the top ten Indian romantic novels that redefined romance. His anthology series ‘Uff Ye Emotions’ has been the synonym of success in the segment since the past couple of years. Versatility remains the key factor in Vinits writing and has helped him create a niche for himself as a writer in both, Hindi and English language in fiction as well as in the non-fiction segment. Other than writing, he is a creative consultant and a motivational speaker as well, often conducting regular sessions on motivation and personality development in different academic institutes of India.

Final Verdict- I would recommend this book to all who loves to read romance and action packed together. Overall I give 3.5 out of 5.
