This story surely keeps you hooked on till the end. It talks about the new age definition of love, relationships and sex which most of the generation today can easily relate to. What is interesting is her diversity in relationships and her perspectives on the same once they ended. Being involved with a married man, then getting involved with a Spanish guy younger than her, then a rich guy 12 years older than her, making out with a movie star! Incredible range of relationship diversity! Personall ...more

A good afternoon coffee time read. Too predictable and cliched but that's expected out of a chicklit. I am slowly running out of patience for this genre. I hope Madhuri Bannerjee comes up with something more refreshing in her third book. Looking forward to read her more. See! Thats the magic of her writing. I dont think I said much good about her characters. But I want to see where Kaveri goes finally. But Please Madhuri, let Kaveri not jump into beds so easily! :)

Not as good as her first book. Losing my virginity and other dumb ideas was pithy and clever. Mistakes more cliched and the main protagonist comes across as immature and fickle in some parts. Still will wait for the last book in the trilogy.

Its a book for the modern generation - the central character is a woman in her mid thirties, smokes, drinks, jumps from one relationship to the other, is not ready for marriage, yet she appears like the girl next door! Its a good read at the end of the day.

I have been following Madhuri's books and have read it all. I must say after #ForbiddenDesires, this one is the best one to read. She is just awesome with her writing. You can actually feel the expressions and she has quoted some very good statements which could make you re-think how you are trying work out some or other things in your life. #Awesome read and Best of Luck to her for upcoming novels.

Cosmopolitan says that a new Carrie Bradshaw has arrived and this made me to look at the book with a new perspective. In the first book, Kaveri was a lot similar to Charlotte and Miranda; she believed in true love and was ready to wait for him and was well educated and very confident and could give men a tough competition.

After her break up with Arjun she became a lot like Samantha and had no qualms with having sex with men at all sorts of places.

But now in this book, she is hundred percent Car

Kaveri is an amazing and a very strong character.
she is courageous, wants to live life on her own terms, has loads of relationships, is very mature and wants so much more from her life than just being a wife to some successful businessman.
filled with loads of sex and philosophy, a nice read.

This book is the second installation of a chick-lit trilogy about a globetrotting, intelligent, perceptive and yet assuring-ly normal thirty-something woman called Kaveri.
I haven't read the first book, but I pretty much got the gist of what happened there in this one.
Banerjee is definitely a good writer and can make the reader feel as if Kaveri is talking to you about how woman-single or married- face problems and experiences in their careers and love life, in today's day and age.
It's a lovely

Like the previous book, i totally enjoyed reading. I loved the way the author have kept the suspense alive throughout the book. It is really a wonderful experience reading all the ups and downs a girl can face in her life and still can keep her hopes high for a good life-partner and never give up on the thought of her own vision of perfect man!
Incredible presentation.
Keep it up.

Somehow the author understands men so well that the book sometimes start looking like a mirror. Even though it can be said that this is a representation of an independent strong middle aged women who still has a lot to figure out in her life but it has been written in a way that make the male readers not just understand things about the women but also a lot about themselves!

Same old chick-lit novel. Superficial with nothing to hold on to.
