'The Royal Roommate' by P. G. Van ~ Review



THE ROYAL ROOMMATE

Blurb
My purpose in life is to protect you… 

Sid is Army strong and sinfully sexy. He is tasked to investigate a woman suspected of having connections with a rebel group. The style of investigation was not his choice, and he is asked to move in as the roommate of the person of interest, Amy. 
Amy was thrilled to start her internship in San Francisco and wasn’t expecting a man with rock-solid abs as her roommate. The moment she laid eyes on him, she knew he was bad news. 

The attraction was undeniable and they both wondered how long they could hold on to their resolve. Sid didn’t want to sleep with a suspect even if she was wildly beautiful and sexy. Amy wasn’t interested in a fling. 

Just when Sid is about to close his investigation and declare Amy’s innocence, he finds out something about her that changes everything. She becomes the most important person in his life.


My Review

I'm a big fan of cocktails. I'll mix dark rum with Tomato juice, put sugar syrup in vodka, or even pineapple juice in my scotch. Some of them work, some don't. Okay, most don't; but that's not the point I'm getting at. The point, dear readers, is that I'm a mix freak. I don't like to be bound inside brackets, and the same applies to my choice of reads. I like genre-hopping.
'The Royal Roommate' by P.G. Van gave me exactly that. It is a well-crafted cocktail of romance, with suspense, a little bit of thrill, and a good, healthy dose of hot steaming sex. Rarely have I read love-making scenes written in such boldness, and definitely never by a writer of Indian origin. Kudos, to P.G.V. for that!

WHAT I LIKED
The plot is strong, the narrative is more-or-less evenly paced, the language is easy and modern, and the characters seem real and relatable.

WHAT I DIDN'T
The romantic interactions between the protagonists could have been portrayed slower, better and longer. Now that I sit to think about that part, it almost read like a 2-minutes instant noodle. I'd have liked some more flirtation, some more tension and conflicts between the protagonists.

MY VERDICT
I recommend this book to everyone who is a fan of sexy romance, served with a scoop each of thriller and suspense.

I give 'The Royal Roommate', a 4 out of 5 stars.

AVISHI by Saiswaroopa Iyer


Blurb
Long before the times of Draupadi and Sita Immortalised in the hymns of the Rig Veda But largely forgotten to the memory of India Is the Warrior Queen with an iron leg, Vishpala
Brought up in the pristine forest school of Naimisha, Avishi reaches the republic of Ashtagani in search of her destiny. When Khela, the oppressive King of the neighbouring Vrishabhavati begins to overwhelm and invade Ashtagani, Avishi rises to protect her settlement. But peril pursues her everywhere.
Separated from her love, her settlement broken, with a brutal injury needing amputation of her leg, can Avishi overcome Khela?

If stories about ancient India, especially those with strong women characters interest you, then Avishi is a story you must read!

MY REVIEW
Being a multi-genre writer and reader has its own set of advantages. One of them being, you're never short of topics.
Mythology and ancient Indian history are two of my current loves. It was the primary reason, why I immediate…

'It Happens' by Karan Sharma ~ Review

IT HAPPENS by Karan Sharma


Blurb
During our childhood days, we tend to have these crushes on people older than us that fade as we grow up. We never act upon them but they remain as memories that we always cherish. 
But what happens when two adults with such an age difference fall in love? 
It Happens is a story about how Gautam, a twenty-five-year-old upcoming professional and Roshni, an unmarried thirty-seven-year-old senior management member working in the same multinational bank, face this very question. Can two people with such a vast age difference be compatible? 
The story is a romantic comedy that explores this situation in a light-hearted way as they fall in love, get laughed at by their friends and then develop cold feet, thinking about the repercussions their age difference could have on their marriage. Since this happens in India, where marriage is a major social issue, the plot holds further intrigue. 
They say love is blind and makes one think with the heart, rather than the mind…
