Master storyteller Ravi Subramanian, delves into the glitzy world of bestsellers and uncovers a risky dalliance between a superstar novelist and his alluring protégé.
The Bestseller She Wrote is a combustible cocktail of love, betrayal and redemption.

The Bestseller She Wrote is the first romantic genre book by Ravi Subramanian who usually has written some exceptionally brilliant banking based thrillers & since he is a banker himself he knows his stuff but I was sceptical when I came across this book, can he REALLY pull off a romantic novel? I will answer this at the end of the review *trying to be a little mysterious*.

There 2 main characters in this book, Aditya Kapoor & Shreya Kaushik. Their introduction is as follows, Aditya Kapoor is a successful banker, a paperback king but also a loving father & husband while Shreya Kaushik is a young student who is never afraid to speak up her mind & also the kind of person who will chase her dreams & her dream is to be a bestselling writer. Their sudden interaction takes place when Aditya Kapoor is invited to give a speech to the young minds at IIM Bangalore where he studied himself, he is interrupted by Shreya when he stated novel as a ‘product’ since according to him it needs very detailed marketing & PR activity just like other commodities but on the contrary she is puts up a passionate view point about novels being a part of author’s soul which didn’t stumbled him at all. This being their first interaction no one can ever guess that this book is going to be a romantic one but tables turned when Shreya wrote back to Aditya after reading his books, the excitement & admiration in her words made him go weak & ultimately he falls for her. He got her selected from campus & even got her assigned to him which wasn’t difficult at all since the HR Head of his bank was his best friend.

Aditya also forms an extra marital relationship with Shreya & helps her to approach a publisher since her work is endorsed by someone of his stature the publisher readily agrees. But when Aditya’s wife suddenly gets sick & is on her deathbed he feels guilty of committing adultery & is adamant about setting things the way they should be. But will it be so easy to undo what has been already done? And will Shreya’s book get published & be a bestseller? Buy it to know the answers!! ;)

What I love about this book is the way it’s written, the way Ravi Subramanian used simple language to write such a beautiful novel is just mind blowing! It’s so easy to make a connection with the story *except the adultery part :p * that after some time you might even think that it’s happening in front of you. Even the characters are so believable that you won’t think of them as fictitious characters.

This book is of 300+ pages & god only knows that I am a slow reader but I did finished this one in record time, so to answer the question in the first paragraph Ravi Subramanian did an amazing writing a romantic novel but I would also like to add that I would have loved it even more if I would’ve found the romantic portion a bit more.
