I received this book as a gift. This is the second book that I read by Preeti Shenoy. It is a very interesting story about relationships and friendship.
When Vipasha, Vee to friends, eighteen and single, makes the decision to have her baby, she does more than give up her promising modeling career. She ends up cutting ties with her family and with Ankush, the man she thought she was in love with. Fast-forward sixteen years and she now has two unusual careers – she runs a dog-boarding facility and is a gym instructor. Aryan thinks she is the coolest mom in the world and hopes she will one day find her Prince Charming – exactly what her best friend Suchi has in mind for her. But Vee secretly has a thing for Saurabh, the quirky vet.
Then, out of the blue, Ankush comes back into their life.
But can a decision that was taken at eighteen – more in the throes of lust than love-be the basis of a lifelong relationship? Is there a future for Ankush and Vee? Vee, Aryan and Ankush are in for the ride of their lives. No seat belts, full speed and a very bumpy road ahead.
My Review –
It is a story about Vipasha, known as Vee to her friends. She is a bright, young, 18 year old who takes a strong step of having her baby. For her baby she gives up her modeling career, which was taking off and cuts all the ties with her family and Ankush, who she loved and also is the father of the baby.
Vee’s parents are really rich but have no time for their daughter. Vee is never able to get any love or affection from her parents.
Sixteen years later, she is a single mom who runs a dog-boarding facility and is also a gym instructor. Aryan, her son thinks she is the best mom in the world and hopes that she finds love in her life.
There is another very strong character in the book called Suchi, who is Vee’s best friend. Suchi is always trying to hook her up with someone or the other in the hope that her friend finds love.
Vee’s world changes when suddenly Ankush comes back in her life. What will Vipasha do? Will she take Ankush as just a father of his son and will she recognize her love for him? You have to read and fine out!
Each character has something unique, they all have things that you will love and also hate. They appear to be normal people. The narration keeps the reader engaged and always looking out for what will happen next. The book talks about how relationships can be complex yet very simple.
The concept is really nice and engaging. Overall, it’s a great book, if you are looking for a quick and stress free read. Something that you could like to take on a vacation.
