The One She Was Warned About is the first book by Shoma Narayanan that I have read. She has already published three books before this.

The One She Was Warned About is the story of Shweta and Nikhil, who had been friends in their schooldays but lost contact when Nikhil was expelled from school. Now after almost ten years they meet at a party and while reliving their past memories, they are drawn towards each other. Although their attraction for each other is strong, both have their own doubts abo
'Stalled' is my euphemism for DNF. I pushed myself to finish this pretty much from the get go, but by the time I read 80% of the book I'd lost my will to live. This has been on my TBR pile for a while as a Indian style Mills & Boon romance intrigued me and I'm sorry to say I was sadly disappointed.

Bland and boring. The H and h seem to have no chemistry and no personality and I really didn't feel the emotion or the romance. The h comes off as very immature.

I couldn't even focus on the cultu
A pleasant, sweet romance. I wished for more depth of character and sometimes less exposition-y treatment of changes in feelings, but for the most part, this was a nice read, with a fade-to-black romance and a few interesting nuances.

Shweta and Nikhil have known each other since childhood. They weren't friends, but they weren't utter enemies, either, even though he teased her quite a bit. Their most lasting impact on each other was the scar left on rebellious Nikhil's forehead from when hot-temp
Simply loved reading it and just couldn't have enough...The writing is soo fresh, true to the heart where every emotion can be felt and soo true to Real Life's situations.

Loved the way the author has woven Nikhil and Shweta's cute love story and shown the beautiful chemistry between them.
He being although a successful high profile guy who has made a mark for himself in his field of work , has still been traditional in his roots and thinking . Shweta's character is fun and wonderful to read , ind

I enjoy reading Mills and Boon romances from time to time and Shoma Narayanan is a fantastic author. So I was pretty excited to start The One She Was Warned About. I really enjoyed the book. It was a quick read and a few hours well spent.

Shweta has turned thirty. She think her love life should have been sorted by now but the prospects are so not looking good. Then she bumps into Nikhil, the guy she's known through all her childhood. She knows he's a bad boy but she can't resist him. I liked Shwe

This is Shoma Narayanan’s Third book and this is the first time that I read her work.

Shweta and Nikhil have moved on from the life where they ‘knew’ each other. Shweta, now thirty, is struggling with decisions of her life. Things were certainly not going the way she had day dreamed and planned about. Instead at thirty she finds herself attached, not engaged, to a boring man with no immediate marriage plans and certainly no kids. When she bumps into Nikhil
Emily Ragsdale
Meh. I liked Shoma Narayanan's first two books, but her second two have not been very good. The characters go through the motions and we're told they're feeling passion or love or anger, but not shown why.

The problem with this one is that there just isn't much plot. Shweta and Nikhil went to school together until they were 14. They meet up again 15 years later and start dating. There's no romantic tension between them, nothing keeping them apart. They both have minor issues with self-esteem and

one of the most pathetic book I have read.. jerks read such things

As always, Shoma's narration is smooth and keeps you hooked right till the end. Though the story was quite predictable, the characters are well etched out. Nikhil is the bad boy guy who re-enters Shweta's life after almost fifteen years. Of course, their chemistry is sizzling right from the first chapter. Set against the backdrop of Mumbai with visits to Kerala, Pune and Delhi, the book is an entertainer. If you are looking for a light, breezy read, then you are bound to enjoy this one.

Shoma started reading romances at the age of eleven, borrowing them from neighbours so that her parents didn’t find out. At that time the thought of writing one herself never entered her head. But a couple of years ago Shoma took up writing and was amazed at how much she enjoyed it. Now she works grimly at her banking job through the week, and tries to balance writing with household chores during ...more
