Product description

Product Description

The badass Shikha is startled when the nerdy Abhimanyu proposes marriage. She loves... herself, and Abhimanyu doesn't figure on her list anywhere. For Abhimanyu, however, it was love at first sight when Shikha walked into RS Software, where the two of them work.

When Abhimanyu shows her that he just might be rich enough for her, a pleasantly surprised Shikha accepts his marriage proposal and moves into his swanky apartment.

But it looks like the love is all from only Abhi’s side as Shikha continues to drink herself crazy. Yeah, even at their wedding party.

And then Abhi sets out on a honeymoon to Thailand with His Drunken Wife...

*MARRIAGES MADE IN INDIA is a five-novella series that revolves around the characters you have met in The Runaway Bridegroom.

The story revolves around Abhimanyu and Shikha, characters who we get a brief glimpse of in Sundari’s previous novel. Opposite poles Abhimanyu and Shikha are bound together in a marriage. What is merely an association of convenience for Shikha, is a bond of love for Abhi. He is perfection personified and she’s your wayward girl. The story traces how their paths come together and how Abhi gives her unconditional love and support, helping her overcome her fears and addiction, in spite of her couldn’t-care-less-attitude towards him and the marriage. What’s troubling Shikha? Why can she not bring herself to trust Abhi? How does Abhi manage to win her over? You will have to read the book to know more.

What I liked:
The story is very different from the fairy tale romances that Sundari is known to weave. As the title of the book implies, it touches upon the important aspect of addiction and how it can consume someone’s life completely. It also talks about how unconditional love is very important to help a loved one cope with addictions such as alcoholism. Abhimanyu as the endearing and patient husband is adorable and Shikha as the brash, drunken wife manages to elicit our empathy once we know why she is in such a miserable place.

What I would have liked:
I would have liked to know Abhi a little more in terms of why he is so obsessed with Shikha in spite of her not reciprocating his feelings, like what went into making Abhi the soft, understanding person that he is, his emotions when he is constantly rejected by her, etc. I would also have liked Abhi to have some flaws because it is very rare that someone can be so perfect.

Final words:
This book is sizzling hot in terms of the number of steamy scenes it has.

The Drunken Wife is an homage to love that stands by when the going gets tough. It is the love that fights for its love. The book is fast, fun and full of a lot of fireworks! Sundari has kept the pace of the first book in the series and book 2 has all the elements of a good read and it a quick read as well.

Smart, sexy and setting hearts aflutter, Shikha and Abhimanyu left me a happy reader. The book has romance as well as substance – a trademark of Sundari who always manages to mesh common sense, kindness, wisdom, romance and love into yet another best seller.

Shikha is bit money minded, self-centered woman, in fact initially she was on the verge of being rude and selfish. I wondered how she could be the heroine? But love is blind and she cleaned up pretty neatly! It is when we see her through the eyes of Abhimanyu that we realise the simple, insecure girl hidden behind the gruff facade.

I loved the premise of the book, the need that Abhimanyu feels for his wife and how he goes about solving her problem, one that she does not even realise she has. Her husband not only loves her but also ensures that she is her best. Insolent at times she tries to drive him away but then true stays and fights for togetherness.

From a money minded selfish woman, she is transformed into a much-loved woman – that is the power of love. Like the ideal man, Abhimanyu is not only hot, handsome, rich, and kind he is cool as well. Sure of his love and his girl he pulls out all the stops to ensure his love is valued.

The Drunken Wife is another book in a series that will leave you eager to read the next one. I know I am off to pick the next one since all 5 books are on top of the charts.

If anyone could have pulled a female character with drinking problem, smoking issues and an obsession to marry wealth successfully as a protagonist in a romance it is Sundari Venkatraman.
More than the reader in me, the writer in me wanted to see how she did that. But soon the reader in me kicked in. It is not the usual fairytale kind but more an inspirational one.
The patience and strength of Abhimanyu is just rock solid as he stands by Shikha. This romance is not just about a great looking hunk, beautiful lady and love but beyond that, ‘an inspirational romance’ would be the right word.

4.0 out of 5 stars Entertaining battle of wills 7 September 2016
By Devika Fernando - Published on Amazon.com

"His Drunken Wife" is the second book in the 5-novella series "Marriages Made in India", and I liked it enough to check out the other books too.

This is the author’s first try at writing a novella that is decidedly hotter than her contemporary romance novels. Regarding its style, it reminded me a little of her romantic suspense novel "An Autograph for Anjali", mostly due to its brevity, its succinct language and its daring foray into an area not too many Indian romance novelists touch.

I had already caught glimpses of Shikha and Abhimanyu in Sundari Venkatraman’s novel "The Runaway Bridegroom", so they felt nicely familiar. But I think that even if you haven’t ‘met’ them before, you’re pulled right into their lives and will find them authentic and entertaining. Hot-headed, red-blooded Shikha is a real whirlwind that quiet, suave yet confident Abhi sets out to tame. It isn’t an easy feat, but his love for her helps both of them. I found it interesting to see the heroine and not the hero deal with an addiction for a change. The reasons for her alcohol problems are revealed later in the book and make the story more credible. As for Abhi, he makes a gorgeous hero, and I can see why these two match so well.

This is a novella, so get ready for a very short but also very satisfying ride (pardon the pun). There’s a lot of steam and sexiness going on, but nicely woven into a well-constructed plot. If you’re looking for a quick fix that can be read in one go and is like a tasty, very spicy bite that makes you long for a full meal of Indian temperament and temptation, then this is the right choice. I’m sure I’ll enjoy Book 1 (Her Smitten Husband) too.

2.0 out of 5 stars Couldn't root for the heroine. There was nothing more ... 21 January 2017

Couldn't root for the heroine. There was nothing more than physical attraction between the main characters.
Wish the author would not use the word, "retarded child". It's not responsible language and demeaning in the least.

The title? Nevertheless, I was intrigued to know how the heroine's story would be told. Without too many spoilers I will say she's still not likable and I didn't feel she grew much.
4.0 out of 5 stars Passionate Story! 18 December 2016
By Surbhi Sareen - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
His Drunken Wife by Sundari Venkatraman is her second novel in the series of Marriages Made in India. This is a novella that has spice, sensuality, love and loads of drama. This book can be surely converted into a movie.

Talking about the cover of the book, it looks fantastic as it has a couple who are in intense mode. The cover looks like as if we are going to read an erotica but it has something different in stored for us. The passionate picture surely has a unique story to convey.

The title His Drunken Wife is a new beginning. Mostly in country like India, alcohol is acceptable for men but when it comes to women, they are often judged by this. Drinking is a choice but when it becomes an addiction its hard to get over it, be it for man or woman. This title surely gives us a different picture but we don't judge the lady.

The story is about Shikha and Abhimanyu who share a passionate relationship. Shikha has a mysterious past whereas Abhimanyu is like an open book. The card begin to uncover when Abhimanyu and Shikha gets married. A new innings of love, passion, care begins in their life. The plot construction is apt and it binds us to the end.

The author has worked on limited range of characters and all the characters are given much importance. Shikha is a complicated character who is struggling with her inner demons and a past which makes her an alcoholic. She is highly ambitious and wants to marry a rich man like Abhimanyu and when Abhimanyu proposes her, she willing says Yes to him.

Abhimanyu is madly in love with Shikha and can do anything to keep her happy. The way he looks after her after the marriage and handle her anger is appreciable. He heals her heart and pain.

The style of writing is simple. The thrid person narrative with impersonal descriptive pattern makes it beautiful. Further we find some witty sentences that are awestruck. It is an easy read and one doesn't mind it being in an ebook format.
