#BookReview : Finding Juliet by Toffee

Arjun is a sweet, simple guy who is so unlucky in love that he almost lets go of life. Enter his saviour Krish, who turns him into an irresistible flirt, making his life more colourful. But will he find true happiness or has he lost that opportunity?

Join Arjun as he tries to figure out women and discovers the meaning of love, lust and life.. all in his journey of Finding Juliet.

Finding Juliet is a sweet young adult written by Toffee. The author used to write code by day & books by night but currently he is pursuing Master’s in Business Analytics from the University of South Florida. He aims at sharing beautiful stories & reach out to people through his books. This is his second book.

The book is about Arjun, a sweet next to door guy & the women he meets in his journey to appear cool to the world. The story starts with him being in a pub narrating his sob story to his close friend Krish. Our male protagonist Arjun is a romantic & believes in Bollywood kind of love story where there’s going to be a happy ending but as his life takes harsh turns & he loses his love interests because of some reason or the other his best friend Anjali comes to rescue. Ultimately she helps him relocate to Bangalore from Hyderabad to start a new beginning & he does. This is where Krish grooms him & makes him a more confident person, he decides he won’t be a loser anymore & starts his sexcapades with multiple women. Will his boosted ego help him stay happy forever or will he finally find his true love? Get this book here to know..

As I read author Toffee’s intro in the book & the blurb of the book it seemed to me that the author has created the male protagonist in his image. The story is quite simple & ready to be a Bollywood movie, but as Bollywood movies go its a bit clichéd. Arjun seems a sweet character but starts to become annoying in the second part, his callous attitude towards the one person who has been always along his side also makes him a jerk. Though at the end he comes to his senses but again the scene was clichéd too. The language used is easy, the cover is good but the title could’ve been better. Readers interested in romantic books shouldn’t miss it.
