writing contest and was selected to write the first Indian Mills Boon novel I ve heard women of all generations swoon over these books My mom being a huge fan of the most famous romance novels of all time suggested we buy Monsoon Wedding Fever and after both my mom my best friend fellow blogger Janhvi said the book was really really good, I thought I should it a try Since I hadn t read any MB books before sad, I know , I didn t know what to expect and I didn t have a previous record of read novels to compare it to Even then, Monsoon Wedding Fever took me by surprise I enjoyed reading my first ever Mills Boon novel and what better way to start it off than by an Indian author Okay, I admit I didn t really find anything swoon worthy, but the story in itself was really good Riya and Dhruv were really good friends in college and at seventeen, Riya knows she is in love with Dhruv After a brief make out session, Dhruv leaves Riya and never looks back Many years later, things start heating up when Dhruv shows up at Riya s apartment to attend the wedding of his cousin and Riya s flatmate, Gaurav This grand wedding creates a general romantic atmosphere and Riya and Dhruv find themselves getting way too close One event leads to another and this heartbreaking, cautious and at times silly journey makes both Riya and Dhruv realise their place in each other s lives As main characters, both Riya and Dhruv are essentially Indian and I could easily relate to all the little things that come with being brought up in an Indian family, like meeting relatives at a wedding, having them literally force you to get married that one s far away for me, but still, I ve seen it happen or even the general family scenario in the life of an Indian Riya and Dhruv have predominantly metropolitan lifestyle, with both of them having studied outside of their respective hometowns, doing a 9 to 5 job and juggling with the daily hassles of life Riya was a sweet girl, though at times she did get on my nerves Dhruv was handsome and smart, but sometimes his actions also irritated me Then again, no one is perfect and each person has their own way of dealing with their own life Once Riya and Dhruv were together, it was hard to miss the sizzling chemistry between them The light teasing, the slight tension in the air, the nerves, the sexual attraction were hard to miss Their conversations were mature, thoughtful and enjoyable Shoma Narayanan has written a beautiful story that gives readers a glimpse into the chaotic and incredible Indian lifestyle with it s perks and windfalls A sweet love story, Monsoon Wedding Fever is an enjoyable and beautiful read I recommend this novel to romance and MB fans, but I think every woman even non readers like my sister or man if they really really enjoy romances will enjoy this short and sweet novel [[ Free Book ]] ⇔ Monsoon Wedding Fever ☋ A match made in Mumbai Coming home from a night out, Riya is not expecting to trip over the man who once broke her heart sleeping on her living room floor He s over for her flatmate s wedding which means she s got to spend with the guy and the sparks are already flying Six years ago Riya fell for him totally whereas Dhruv didn t believe in love Not then and not now After all, the other reason he s in India is to consider an arranged marriage But as the monsoons start Riya and Dhruv are forced to confront what drove them apart back then Only then does Riya start to hope that this wedding fever could perhaps becontagious As a reader of romance fiction who lives in India, I

Indian writers in 2010 Her novel, Monsoon Wedding Fever got an international release and is now nominated for a major romance fiction award.Harlequin Mills and Boon are known for their formula romance novels Feelgood romantic fiction which has a happy ending There s usually the main characters meeting in the first chapter, the conflict, the misunderstandings, the black moment and finally, the moment of commitment Romance fiction is read by women the world over for its tranquillizing effect A good romance novelist knows how to give her reader a good time, how to make her laugh, cry and sigh in one book Contrary to popular illusion, you can t just whip up a romance novel The challenge for the author is how to make the positive ending credible A whole generation of bad romance novels put the genre into the area of ridicule But some of the very best authors I have ever enjoyed reading are writers of romance fiction Many romance novelists write other genres too, often under different names In today s world, romance fiction is as popular as ever HMB have a range of novels of various heat levels, to please the most fastidious of readers who don t want to see what happens in the bedroom to the most voyeuristic who want blow by blow descriptions every thrill and tremor Well, Shomaji s novel fits into the former category rather than the latter It s a sweet romance Yes, the protagonists make love before they re even committed, but the readers are spared the details Dhruv and Riya, the couple, are modern Indians, working in Mumbai, both from traditional families and deal with everyday issues, as young professionals do everywhere in the world Riya struggles to help her parents financially and keep her head above water in the working world The Mumbai floods don t help and leave Riya stranded in her office, unable to find a way out But Dhruv, the hero comes to her rescue driving a mean motorcycle The story certainly gladdens the heart.It s a reunion story the pair fell in love at college, but Dhruv had walked away, feeling cynical about love and romance His parents unhappy love marriage had jaundiced his views Riya and Dhruv are reunited when they meet at his cousin s wedding The sparks fly again and Dhruv is ready to admit that he made a mistake by leaving Riya before But will Riya take him back A simple, down to earth girl, she is not going to let Dhruv charm her back with his money He s going to have to prove himself now Which is only right and proper.I found the novel hugely enjoyable I don t know Mumbai life, but I loved the Indian atmosphere, the believable characters, especially the fact that the hero was a modern young professional man rather than some fantasy prince or a playboy The story felt very real, not a fantasy type story I loved the fact that Hindi words appeared every so often Over all, a very creditable romance novel, as good as any I ve read Narayanan s delightful debut sets a great precedent for Harlequin bringingglobal romance to U.S shores Intrinsically Indian aside from a few very western references that I assume were thrown in during edits , with a deft grasp of the modern generation of desi guys and gals looking for love, Monsoon Wedding Fever is like a Bollywood rom com in print form Readers will enjoy catching the fever with Riya and Dhruv. The best part was when I downloaded it in my iPad She is the first Indian Mills Boon writer, whose book I could download via the electronic media Before that I tried Milan Vohra s Love Asana but could not I am still searching for a copy I am sure it would have been exciting for Shoma Narayanan, but for the Indian readers abroad it was totally a new way of looking at a Mills Boon Our very own Indian models on the cover Wow This was something we all would identify with.The story line wa The best part was when I downloaded it in my iPad She is the first Indian MillsBoon writer, whose book I could download via the electronic media Before that I tried Milan Vohra s Love Asana but could not I am still searching for a copy I am sure it would have been exciting for Shoma Narayanan, but for the Indian readers abroad it was totally a new way of looking at a MillsBoon Our very own Indian models on the cover Wow This was something we all would identify with.The story line was filled with lot of conflicts According to some reviewers too many But I beg to defer.Dhruv and Riya were college sweethearts but due to the emotional baggage carried by Dhruv it did not have a happily ever after ending Both carried on with their lives Why shouldn t they Thank god for non tragical Romeos and Juliets But they were destined to meet again and they do so in Gaurav s marriage Gaurav was Riya s flatmate The first shocker for the Rip Van Winkle in me while Dhruv being Gaurav s cousin lands up in the apartment they both were staying in Riya did not know of his arrival and stumbles upon him in the middle of the night.Old feelings raise their head again and engulfes them But they did try to fight it off Oh yeah Even to the extend of Riya selling off her much beloved car and moving out of the country only to land up having pre marital sex before going off to Hong Kong Okay Rip Van Winkle take a chill pill.I found the constant clash between the characters interesting Dhruv battleling with his hangups regarding love in a marriage due to the constant fights between his parents On the other hand Riya came from a loving home albeit a poor one She definitely had hangups about money But overall it was these hangups of the two which kept the story moving Many readers might feel that every time they were decided to separate only to start kissing after two pages But isn t that what the clash is supposed to be all about A clash of emotions Besides the love story there was another angle which threw light on the characters of the story Riya taking care of her parents, proud to ask money from anyone while Dhruv silently helping her parents without informing her That was the sweetest thing of all Joining of hearts is definitely important for the success of any relationship but sensitiveness shown towards each others family also creates a stronger bond between two lovebirds.On the whole I loved this book and would be waiting for Shoma Narayanan s upcoming books All the best from all the readers.PS I think the clash wasbetween the two covers Which one to likeThe art or the reality Leave to you readers Check out the review How many people would have written a review for a

company, and as per company policy, shares a flat with Gaurav Khanna She is a small town girl very close to her sister, Shreya who is a dentist and her parents She lives in Mumbai.Dhruv, thirty two, is an architect and a partner at a Singapore based firm He is very cynical and does not believe in love He is fond of his sister, Chutki and treats his brother, Karan, as a friend He lives in Singapore.In town to attend Gaurav s wedding to Madhulika, he stays at Gaurav s flat and that s where he meets Riya after twelve years of leaving her The story goes on and they lived happily ever after I loved this book from the word go The Indianness of the book the heroine wears Lehenga Choli to a wedding and not a gown, she buys a bright red i10 and names it McQueen.The best part of the book was that the author had described the feeling of both Dhruv and Riya Set in India, the story revolves around Riya who wants a romantic match and doesn t believe her college roommate s friend is it after all, he broke her heart years earlier.Dhruv doesn t believe in love matches at all, as his parents married for love and now they hate each other and fight all the time But what both Dhruv and Riva feel for each other changes their decision to not see each other again all because of what they discover when a monsoon floods the streets and she s forced to take re Set in India, the story

rating is actually 2.5 stars I had never read a Mills Boon novel before, and so it is quite possible to find my review a bit harsh Therefore, I m going to be very crisp about it The literature is honestly unimpressive and unimpactful, the storyline is weak, the background story does not seem powerful enough The book includes some forced elements of sensuality constantly rambling on the physical attributes of the characters does not make the situation raunchy the situation must be passionate enough for the readers to feel the heat All of this improves slightly in the second half though However, again, the conflict in the story was not agreeable enough to me And the climax is unrealistically too good to be true on another level But people used to reading MB may like it I just have no frame of reference Though my first choice for reading hasn t made me regret not having readof the publication s titles earlier Oh my God I both hated and loved the book at the same time The reason I hated is because it wasn t like the usual mills and boon novels and loved it because it defied the conventional m b novels.Before I dive into the contents of the book, I d really like to share my opinion of the cover The cover reflects brightness,, colour contrast, vibrancy and the shades of a wedding There s this young Indian couple,gazing in each other s eyes dressed in intricate

defied the conventional mb novels.Before I dive into the contents of the book, I d really like to share my opinion of the cover The cover reflects brightness,, colour contrast, vibrancy and the shades of a wedding There s this young Indian couple,gazing in each other s eyes dressed in intricate Indian apparels Down below there are ornamented cushions and garlands flaunted by sunlight streaming in through the open corridors So beautiful so true to the title Now going back to the story it was like an ordinary reunion tale but the flavor of the monsoon season adds to the charm of the story Shoma Narayanan has wittingly combined the Bengali and the Punjabi styles of marriage ceremonies giving the International market a taste of North as well as East India.The hero, Dhruv was totally delicious He didn t depict the traditional Harlequin heroes mb heroes ruthless,dangerous, commanding and dark except his looks and money He was affectionate and sweet to Riya from the very beginning My favourite scene was where he tenderly bathed Riya s feet with water Thats so compassionate For some reasons, he reminded me so much of Stavros Drakos from Maisey Yates At his majesty s request How can you not fall for this guy Riya shared all the traditional traits of a mb heroine but she really got on my nerves at times It was evident from the first few pages of the book that the couple still had feelings for themselves yet the author simply dragged the book at parts A few twists and unwanted situations could have prevented it from being tedious.But above all I liked the story because the ending was exceptionally gorgeous This author has wisely used the monsoon season and a colourful wedding as a backdrop making you yearn forThe side characters were also fun especially Gaurav and Chutki I hope that Narayanan also writes this intrigueing Chutki s story one day because she deserves way lotthan a milkman s son and quarreling parents lol Good job from first time author Shoma Narayanan Finally, you will like the characters so much that you will end up falling in love with the book
