Book: Wrong Means Right End
Author: Varsha Dixit
Price: Rs. 140
“After a failed marriage, Sneha, a single working mom, has no time, or inclination, for love. She resists every matchmaking attempt made by the overzealous Nandini, married to industrialist Aditya. But then the past intrudes in the form of the gorgeous and rich, Nikhil, who brings along Gayatri to break-up her ex-fiance, Aditya’s marriage. Sneha enlists Nikhil’ s help to salvage the situation. But how does she even talk to a man who clearly loathes her? As Nikhil and Sneha try to grapple with their egos and combustible chemistry, love blossoms.”
Like all novels/movies falling in the chick-lit genre, here too, you will find that the male protagonist is a multimillionaire drop dead gorgeous hunk (and not yet 30) and ALWAYS spurned in love (in the past, of course!). The lady is no less than a Charlie’s angel – strong, feisty, making it all alone in a big bad world, and someone who will always be fit and sexy even though she hardly finds time to gym (like most of us office-goers).
The protagonists of the book Sneha and Nikhil are undeniably attracted to each other, and at the same time, they can’t stand the sight of each other due to some past liaisons. Nikhil is a divorcee (AND multimillionaire hunk!) and Sneha, a divorcee with a son (AND a super sexy working woman of the world!). As much as Sneha wants to avoid meeting Nikhil, she is forced to, as he is the only one who can help her in saving her best friend’s Nandini’s (sexy lady!) marriage to Aditya (handsome multimillionaire hunk!). Bright? No?No? May be you should read on..
I did not anything profound or something very interesting in the story. The story moves forward with Sneha and Nikhil’s expected and unexpected meetings, and the author goes as far as writing out their wild fascinations for us. Not once. Not twice. Many times over. Our very chaste good girl and good guy even try making out in the car. Eevrytime I read how Nikhil wanted to sweep Sneha off her feet in an Adam-Eve kind of way and do ermm…things to her, I was transported back to the Mills and Boon days. Frankly, I had expected better!
PS: This book is a sequel to the “Right Fit Wrong Shoe” by the same author. May be my verdict would have been different had I read that one. Or maybe not! You will have to figure it out for yourself. As I said before, you may like this book if you are a Chick-Lit genre fan. As for me, just a one-time read. Ideal for an overnight train journey or a 2 hour flight.
