I have read Akash Verma’s work before too hence I had no reservations that this book will be a good read too & I’m glad I was right. Its just a 216 pages book & what the author has achieved to fit in such a small book is tremendous. The story has just the right amount of romance as well as thrill which gave it an edge. All the characters have been etched well & the way each chapter has been written in PoV of different characters is intriguing too. The language is simple, the cover is stunning & the title is apt too. Readers interested in quick reads should surely pick this up.
