I am having difficulty in articulating my reaction after I finished reading this book. There is a clear distinction in the way which the characters have been groomed and developed. The style of narration is quite hurried and doesn’t match with the expected plot development. The characters seem reluctant in the story, so much so that as a reader you develop a distaste for them. I was not able to like either of the lead character, the plot shows a poor flair of showmanship and the narration just left me floundering.
The title speaks for the main plot. But the cover image looks more like an advertisement for bridal magazine than the convenient marriage of the lead characters.
My opinion: The story definitely had potential but it failed to deliver on the expectations. I was not able to like either the story or the characters.
My rating: 1 out of 5
