ABOUT THE BOOK
Love doesn't need to be perfect; it just needs to be true. Nice thought, isn't it? Stephen Hawking rightly said that one of the basic rules of the universe is that nothing is perfect, perfection simply doesn't exist, without imperfection neither you nor I would exist.
This is a story about two people who are bound to be together as we say opposite attracts. In the book Flawed, the author has described her male protagonist Aditya as someone who is supposedly perfect, a dutiful son, ambitious and go-getter employee, trustworthy friend and an ideal husband material. On the other hand female protagonist Vaani is called as flawed who is a narcissistic, unattached when it come to her family, confused and over ambitious.
Aditya Khamankar was a chartered accountant works with Vaani's father as a partner. All he wanted was a simple and uncomplicated life but life has its own plans. There comes the entry of flamboyant reality television villain and tabloid fodder, Vaani Jaishankar who left her family to live for the arc lights. But due to certain circumstances she returns to her family and there meets the eye. Both of them have their own struggles and problems to solve. Their witty banter and sweet and steamy romance making this book an extremely engaging one.
It is for you to see how their path meets and where their destiny takes.
MY TAKE ON THE BOOK
Overall, I really enjoyed this book! The angst made my heart hurt, the problems and struggles added the emotional heft I wanted and the romance made my heart warm. It made me feel varied emotions as all the characters seemed quite real. I mean, who doesn't love an uptight hero who has to unbend for a chaotic heroine? The age gap between them made it even more interesting. It made me feel as if I am reading an adult version of Mills and Boon. I can't wait to read her all the work. Consider me a fan.
