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



THE ROYAL ROOMMATE
by
P.G.Van



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.

'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…

Sapna can see the future and saves thousands of people around the world every year through her record-breaking, popular show ‘Lucky People’. The show had given Sapna’s life a meaning and gives her the courage to sleep every night, where death and blood await her in her dreams. 
Even though the world is at her feet, the power costs Sapna her personal life. Thousands of prayers that come her way every year are her only solace, her only reason to live. 
When a blinding hatred leads to a desperate act of revenge, a single misuse of her great power triggers a reversal of her fortunes. Now she must decide the path she has to take to preserve her unique gift and her fame, even if it turns her into a murderer on the brink of insanity.

'Prem Purana' by Usha Narayanan ~ Review

PREM PURANA: MYTHOLOGICAL LOVE STORIES by Usha Narayanan


BLURB
Stories of love and extraordinary devotion 
No one is untouched by love, not even devas and asuras, kings and nymphs. And when they face life’s unexpected tribulations, their love also undergoes trials. Read how Ganesha took myriad forms to please Riddhi, Siddhi and Buddhi, how Ravana shared an unbreakable bond with his true love, Mandodari and how Nala and Damayanti’s relationship was tested till almost nothing remained. 
Tormented by passion, wracked by betrayal, torn by the agony of separation, love in its many splendored forms is the origin of these incredibly endearing stories of Prem Purana. 

MY REVIEW
Disclaimer: I'm an agnostic, who detests reading love stories; and I'm reviewing a book based on the love stories of gods (broadly...more or less). Hence, some parts of this review might end up offending the believers (you shouldn't be though if you're a rational person...not that I care anyway). So, if you are …
