Bodyguard - Book Review


We have seen men guarding women, but in Ruchi Singh’s Bodyguard it is the other way round. Here Esha a former army personnel is guarding millionaire Vikramaditya. I liked the way Ruchi makes her statement by empowering her heroine. It makes the otherwise poor girl falls for the rich man tale interesting. Also not to forget the suspense element which is so cleverly weaved into the narrative.

The characters are well etched. The writing is lucid and free flowing. Romance lovers will not be disappointed with the sizzling chemistry between the lead pair. There are lots of romance book in the market. But it is the twists in Bodyguard that sets it apart from the rest.

You may not be a big fan of mushy writings, but Bodyguard doesn’t disappoint for sure. Isn’t it a good reason to read the book.

Groomnapped - Book Review

Sundari Venkatraman is a prolific writer and a constant source of inspiration. I have always loved her writing.

Groomnapped has all the essential Sundari Venkatraman elements. The words flow freely and there is not even a dull moment in the book. Her fans will definitely enjoy the throbbing romance between Ameya and Surekha. As a romantic writer she may not disappoint with Groomnapped. But when it comes to the issue of grooms being kidnapped in Bihar, I felt she has totally belittled the issue. At least she should have titled the book something else. Groomnapped builds a certain set of expectations with regard to the theme of the book, which unfortunately are left unfulfilled. When women are to be respected, men deserve some respect too. I didn’t like the way the author made fun of Mishra’s looks. His character flaws are revealed only at a later stage.
Yet, if you are a Sundari Venkatraman fan, you will enjoy the book.
