Well, romance is one of my favourite genres and that's the main reason I chose this book to read. It Will Always Be You by Megha Rao (Penguin Metro Reads) is a love story of Aditya and...well, Aditya. No, it's not about gay couple. Both female and male protagonists have same names, Aditya! Why? I'm yet to figure it out!
Female Aditya is smart, outspoken and stands up for herself and her little brother. She has been kicked out of her house for no reason (At least there's no plausible explanation) and sent to male Aditya's (Tiger) house to pursue her studies.
Tiger is a rock star and quite likes the female attention he gets. But, guess what (female) Aditya doesn't care at all.
It starts with a quirky, hateful encounter. Aditya & Aditya, gradually calm down, and eventually start feeling for each other. But, there's something that's stopping them to confess their feeling to each other.
What's that? And, what's the destination of this hidden feelings? Want to know the answers? Then, read the book.
Even your favourite genre can't guarantee entertainment. Despite being a romance (from a popular brand) this book did not work for me. Even if it's a fiction, I demand some reason and logic. In this book, many things happen without a reason.
Writing is nice, but for me, it was a little childish. The situations/reasons are not concrete and convincing. Few things are repetitive and have been stretched for longer than necessary. Protagonists are interesting but they could have been portrayed in a better way.
Chapters seems disconnected, which disrupts the flow. And, most disappointing thing is that the writing/situations/characters don't evoke any emotion.
For me, it was not so interesting. But, it may entertain you if you like reading about rock stars, college going young people.
I received this book from the publisher for an unbiased review.
