Another one of those books that you read so long ago that you can't remember anything other than the fact that you did and you don't want to read it again so doing the logical thing of passing it over to another reader who might like it.

Please I beg the author to read my comment and let me know some questions.

1. Are you the one hiding something from ur partner, god does woman keep the secrets??

2. What were you thinking while writing the book? It would be block buster, will be made into a movie ? Take my word its not worth a soap opera ( hope everyone hates that soap opera thing).

3. The book reminded me one of the short story once shown on star one (name of serial was "director's cut"). you bet the idea was stolen from there only.

4. Please choose some sensible topic other time, can you write something apart for that , waise human emotions and relationship needs not to be shown in Infidelity manner. there are so much strong emotions around us to be shown and written right?

5. Giving you one star coz that book cost me some money and can't see my money waste on the book worth "no star" !!

I recently read this book,
The first part of the book is OK
But the second part of the according to me is not up to the standard

and finally what does author trying to convey...

To cheat a partner and hide through out life.

I dont want to write about characters as it is spoiler for the one's who reading it

I accept that book resembles life. But what do we learn from the book. infidelity ? or hiding the infidelity?

The cover and title are apt with the plot. It begins with the description of a scene where the bride is getting ready to step down to marry the groom perfect for her. The happy couple start their married life and eventually have a kid but are the dimensions of their relationship going to stick as they are?
It's a contemporary fictional with a mature content so it requires a mature mindset to understand the situation and emotional turmoil of each character involved in the plot.
There are numerous characters yet the lead ones got full focus of the reader. Plus the narration is super friendly as it's in form dialogues from one to one. The language used is lucid.

The book has successfully managed to bring out the unpredictability of modern day relationship where the wife is no longer the weaker sex. She has her own dreams and aspirations. She's not satisfied playing the role of a stereotypical Indian wife. She expects more...🌚🌚🌚

IN PURSUIT OF INFIDELITY written by Sujata Parashar. This book will come under the romance genre.

This book is a very different love story. The cover of this book may look simple but once we read the book we may find the perfect match for the story.

The main protagonists of the story are Sheena and Gaurav, along with Nikhil also plays a very important role in the book.  Sheena and Gaurav were a happily married couple with a son Krish and they both were busy workaholics. One day Sheena met his college crush  Nikhil and they both regain their friendship and slowly they met each other a few times and  Nikhil proposed and eventually they ending in having an illicit relationship. What will happen to their marriage life? Will this new love be her future? What will happen next? To know more do read the book.

The book started well with the first two chapters and after Nikhil's entrance into the story, I really hate how Sheena started and wanted to take care of herself. The way how Nikhil talks to her at the beginning itself felt fishy yet she falls for him. The book overall feels like a soap opera or a movie kind even the narration and situation were such. The ending is kind of good and unpredictable but still, the concept was very weak. The language is very easy and can be read and tried by all even a beginner friendly.

The plot is not my taste and if you like a different love story after marriage you can try. Not my cup of tea.

A story you will always remember, for it's anything but a moving depiction of the human heart, of our requirement for absolution, from one another and ourselves. It starts with the depiction of a scene where the lady of the hour is preparing to venture down to wed the lucky man ideal for her. A few beginnings their wedded life and in the end has a child, however, are the components of their relationship going to stick.

Sheena and Gaurav, alongside Nikhil additionally assumes a vital part in the book. Sheena and Gaurav were a cheerfully hitched couple with a child Krish and the two of them were occupied compulsive workers. One day Sheena met his school pulverizes Nikhil and the two of them recapture their companionship and gradually they met each other a couple of times and Nikhil proposed and in the long run they cutting off in having an illegal friendship. how Sheena started and wanted to take care of herself. The way how Nikhil talks to her at the beginning itself felt fishy yet she falls for him.

The portrayal is pleasant yet might have been vastly improved. Additionally, the story and plot were the same old thing or special to look forward to because of which it wasn't so much interesting or fascinating.

The language utilized is clear. Also, the cover and title are wonderfully picked. There are various characters who are very much depicted yet needed association.

overall, A beautiful read.

The book is about modern love story.
I am not much into romance fiction but this book seemed matured and thus matured mindset is required to understand and relate.

The narration is nice but could have been much better. Also the story and plot was nothing new or unique to look forward due to which it was not that much intriguing or engrossing.

There are numerous characters who are well described but still lacked connection with the reader.

The language used is lucid. And the cover and title are beautifully chosen. Recommended to romantic fiction readers.

Stunning insights, woven into a youth-oriented story.
It is the first fiction book I've read in a long time. It's surprisingly well written, with insights that are unexpected and woven into a story that is both relevant to the youth and entertaining. I would recommend it to anyone looking for a great read!

Author has brought this story alive with her characters. Sujata has written it beautifully in this book as every word seems to have been carefully chosen to woo the reader more and more into the story.

A fascinating love story. The story revolves brilliantly around two love stories. One involving the protagonists - an eligible man and woman - and another that included a married man and woman. Love is a powerful emotion. It sees no relationships, no barriers, and goes above and beyond.

One of my go to books! Had me invested for literally hours! There is a sence of mild thrill since the theme is still a hush hush topic in our more than perfect Indian society 🤫. Keeping the comment free of spoilers, I'll conclude by saying it's a must read and you're in for a ride 😉

It's simply amazing
This book so empowering for women who are facing an emotional crisis. A book that helps to do a critical analysis of our lives accurately and helps to realize our mistakes.

Infidelity is a much thrashed about subject. However, the author brings a fresh perspective and has done a good job of narrating the story. Recommended

A nice book for those who like reading different kind of love stories. It is the story of some modern day couples.
It is a story of a couple and their married life. It is a contemporary fiction with mature content. The author's style of narration is quite good. I didn't enjoy the book that much. It was just like all the other romantic novels. Might be a nice read for those interested in these kind of romantic novels.

The workaholic lifestyle and the hunger to get rich in a very short span of time, many couple leave their children to governess or in the creche. And both the husband and the wife hop from conference to conference, prepare reports and earn a hefty salary at the end of the month. This workaholic lifestyle or career oriented life has got the seed of the break of fidelity or faith. Owing to insecure mentality, neither wife nor husband nurtures love towards anyone but remain inside a cocoon that they tend to create with the passage of time. Wife doubts her husband and vice versa. Marriage is an institution that rests solely on the fabric of faith and unless this fabric is there joining a wife and husband, there is chances of breakage or divorce.The writer has touched the subject in a very healthy manner.Actually the writer is an Indian and missed the audacity ,she should have shown and she did the Indian thing to allow the couple to patch up , forget and forgive.But the boldness is creeping into the minds of younger generation that marriage is nothing but a temporary arrangement."In pursuit of infidelity" is a good readable option an author has provided. As she is an Indian she has touched the concept of sex in a very subtle way.
In all "In pursuit of infidelity " is a good read.
