ARC Book Review--> To Live Again (Learning to live again #1) by Dori Lavelle

Posted by Nikita Johri at 11:36 AM
Title and Author: To Live Again by Dori Lavelle
No. of Pages: 93 Pages
Series: Learning to live again #1
Publication Date: 28 November 2014
Language: English
Genre: Contemporary Romance, Women's Fiction

After losing the future that was promised to her, Kelsey O’Neil says goodbye to her old life and sets out on a journey to capture her own independence, find happiness, and maybe even true love. 
A cozy cottage in a quaint Irish town seems the perfect place to start again. And Shaun Brannon, the sexy but mysterious author next door, could be her second chance at love. But Shaun is incapable of opening his heart to any woman. Can Kelsey find out why before she falls too hard? 
Ten years ago, Shaun Brannon stopped believing in love, or marriage. His only belief now is in lust. The demons he wrestles with daily are too dark to let him get close to a woman without breaking her heart. Then along comes Kelsey, who makes him wonder how it might feel to give love another chance. Is he brave enough to show her his deepest scars? 

Book Review:

I have read four books by Dori Lavelle so far and absolutely loved them all and needless to say, To Live Again also falls in that same awesome category. I loved the blurb and instantly felt that I should read the book. The cover brings a smile to the reader's face and captivates him enough to pick up the book.

The story is well conceived and expertly executed. It is about finding your place in life and I felt connected with the characters. Kelsey felt like a friend and I became her champion, praying for a happily-ever-after for her.

The story flows smoothly and takes us to a quaint, quiet and very beautiful town of Dreara in Ireland. This is the first part of Shaun and Kelsey's story and is a quick read. The introductions to characters, sub-characters and settings is made here with the first installment of the romance between Kelsey and Shaun.

The settings and characters are realistic and the story feels like it is being played right in front of our eyes. I could visualize each and every scene and without having visited Ireland, I feel like I know the place already.

Book Review--> Fashionably Yours by Swati Sharma

Posted by Nikita Johri at 11:51 AM
Title and Author: Fashionably Yours by Swati Sharma
No. of Pages: 253 Pages
Publication Date: Harlequin India (1 November 2014)
Language: English
Genre: Chick Lit, Contemporary Romance, Indian Writing, Desi Romance

Book Review:
Fashionably Yours is Swati Sharma's debut novel and narrates the story of Maya, a small town girl with big dreams. She wants to become a successful fashion writer for the top fashion magazine, Glamorous in the glitzy city of Mumbai. Against the social expectations, she embarks on her journey to realize her dreams and faces many misadventures along the way including her not so smooth love ride with a man who makes her heart flutter. 
Will Maya be able to prove everyone wrong and realize her dreams? 
Will she get her fairytale happily-ever-after with the man she loves?
What challenges will she have to face to get her perfect life?

I absolutely adored the cover. It is catchy and instantly attracts the readers' attention. The blurb is intriguing and forms an image of a normal middle class Indian girl trying to fight her way into the glamorous world of fashion. Both the cover and blurb will attract the readers loving chick lit and romance towards this book.

The plot idea is pretty conventional but Swati is able to make the idea her own. I loved the opening scenes of the book which relate the typical life in the small towns in India complete with the nosy neighbours, gossipy women and the chit chat that revolves around the latest daily soaps on TV! The unsaid expectation of the society for girls to simply fall into its predefined mold and the general distaste that people show towards women or girls who want more from their lives is beautifully protrayed by Swati. Maya is expected to marry a guy and settle down comfortably but when she wants to pursue her ambitions in another city, she is looked down upon and her mother is subtly warned by the other women of the damage to their image in the society if this happens. How sad is this attitude!
