I loved Those Pricey Thakur Girls and was really looking forward to this one. While Chauhan's writing style is as fresh and entertaining as ever, this book didn't really hold me. The plot was well crafted and fun, and as ever, even the smallest of characters was well-rounded.
For some reason though, it is hard to empathise with Bonu. She's a real character, flaws and all, but her choices and attitude didn't appeal to me and I don't do very well with books where I dislike the protagonist. Samar is the quintessential hero, honourable and decent. But I notice that many authors tend to make their women a lot more flawed (and even real) than their men. What is it that drives them to so? Is it only typical to women writers? I'm not sure.
All in all, a fun, quick read even if it's not up to the high standards that Chauhan has set for herself.
