Sundari Venkatraman is an anomaly among today’s self publishing authors. In my experience, most of the self-published books are badly edited with a shoddy plot line and not to mention bad language but Sundari’s books stand out brilliant amidst huge slush pile of bad books.
Meghna is a hot romance and as the author herself mentioned, it is meant for complete entertainment. Needless to say, it delivers its promise.
The story opens with the death of Meghna and Sanjay’s mother. Sanjay’s friend Rahul Sinha feels their pain and finds himself feeling guilty over leaving them to move to London. Rahul has had a troubled childhood and is estranged from his mother, though he loves his father a lot. Before he leaves, he consoles Meghna, who had nursed a love for him since childhood.
Years pass, Rahul is now a handsome hunk and a businessman to boot. Living with his parents in London, his career is soaring and so is his reputation as a hot guy. His mother tries unsuccessfully to hook him onto a girl of her choice but he manages to deflect it and plans to go to India to meet his friend Sanjay.
In India, he meets Meghna after many years and is astounded by her beauty. After many banters, quick fights and equally quick reconciliation, Rahul falls hard for his best friend’s sister. But does she love him? Will they discover love together? Find out by reading this book 🙂
Plus Points: As always, Sundari excels in creating hot heroes and heroines. Her language is as fantastic as ever and that’s what sets her apart from other self-published authors.
Minus Points: Sorry to say that there are a few. Early on in the novel, there is a scene where Rahul who is in his teens kisses 16 year old Meghna on the lips! This somehow irked me because technically she was a minor and your brother’s best friend shouldn’t be taking advantage of her in this manner (sorry it seemed like that to me.)
One more aspect that could have been explored was the equation between Sanjay and Rahul. Is the brother fine with his best friend hooking up with his sister? Rahul certainly doesn’t lose sleep over the fact that his best friend might not want this.
Third one was the book cover, which was a big let down.
Verdict: A perfect weekend read!
