Book Review: Bad Romance by Harshita Srivastava

Name of the Book: Bad Romance

Author: Harshita Srivastava

Publisher: Gargi Publishers

About the Author: A full-time writer, she is the author of 'One In A Million' that got published by Mahaveer Publishers in April 2013. She is an avid reader and a prolific blogger. She was the editor and contributor of a romantic anthology, 'Moonlit Matinee'. She loves reading classics and is a diehard Mills and Boons fan. She owns two blogs by the name, 'Dreams V/s Reality' and 'Relationship Vows'. She writes for a number of online platforms on a regular basis and loves interacting with people. (Via Infibeam)

Blurb: Life is a bitch and I'm one of its victims. I had the perfect life. I was blessed with the perfect boyfriend, a perfect best friend, the perfect set of girlfriends and perfect choice of career. There were some loopholes but then they went beyond my perspective. Overall, I had the kind of life people would ideally like to have but happy times aren't meant to last forever.

Sometimes we feel that we have figured life but that's something that is never going to happen. You know why? It's because it has this habit of kicking us right in the middle of ecstasy. No wonder, it did the same with me.

This is my story, my story of that exploration within, my feelings, my emotions, my thought process, my priorities, my conflicts and my journey into the temptation of love, lust, lies and betrayals. This is the story of Kritika and a man who gave her life another dimension, Tanishq. This is a story of the complexities of relationships and the trap that a simple idea of sensuality, pleasure and euphoria can put you into. This is a story for everyone who has loved, lost and fought for survival and love, together. (Via Infibeam)

Verdict: As the blurb clearly states, the story revolves around Kritika and her life. When she was on the verge of feeling that her life is flowing perfectly on her side, with all the kind of friends everybody dies for and the love life with the perfect guy who cares beyond limit for his girl, her life and destiny kicked her right in the middle of her happiness. What will she do in such a situation? How will she clear the mess created? Will she be able to find out the real reason of such a mess in her life? Let’s read the book and find out.

1) Good story line.
2) Lovely cover.
3) Font size if good enough and won’t hurt your eyes while reading no matter how big specs you have.

1)   Too many editing hinges which makes it tough for the reader to built interest. Every few pages there are mistakes which could have been avoided to make the reading fluid.

To sum up with the review it’s a good story line stating the position of a girl who goes through ups and downs in her life because of the decisions taken in her life. The story covers the most used abuses women in our society faces – verbal abuses, and she tackles these things in her life. Only if good attention was paid to the editing part this book could have been a 4 scorer book. All in all it’s a nice read though you need to pay attention to build interest leaving the editing issues aside.

Ratings: 3 OUT OF 5.
