her Stories In Paris set was out, I was super excited I throughly enjoyed her first bookin this set and I couldn t wait to see how she proceeded with the storyline.I was thankfully not disappointed The second instalment of the series went backwards in time It explored the beginning of Pooja and Akshay s marriage and it goes into the reasons why Rose decided to stay and take care of her injured and grieving sister I truly enjoyed going deeper into the psyche of these characters In my review of Ekta s first book in the series, I mentioned that I thought the stories would do well as full novels I think with this second book, I understood what Ekta has been trying to do here She s been trying to create a full novel but in bits and pieces It s such a unique idea that I haven t really seen much of before I had a few issues with the the way Ekta wrote in some parts I found some parts to be repetitive and staggered and while that did impact the flow of the story at some parts, it wasn t too much of an issue I actually had a lovely discussion with Ekta regarding her writing style By the way, she is so so nice One of the nicest authors I ve come across Overall this was an extremely lovely read I enjoyed it a lot and I think it s something that anyone would love This book was given to me by the author to read and review This review was originally posted on Read Me Away.Confession time I get all fluttery when I read about Pooja and Akshay They re just so SO GOOD TOGETHER Their interactions, their banter, the way they play off each other It just makes me so happy because their love story isn t overly dramatic or mushy, or filled with flowery words They just seem to connect about many things, especially when it comes to their culture s expectations of them and married life They understand each other, and This review was originally posted on Read Me Away.Confession time I get all fluttery when I read about Pooja and Akshay They re just so SO GOOD TOGETHER Their interactions, their banter, the way they play off each other It just makes me so happy because their love story isn t overly dramatic or mushy, or filled with flowery words They just seem to connect about many things, especially when it comes to their culture s expectations of them and married life They understand each other, and even though it takes them a while to realise their love, I saw the connection right away As for the other story, it was mostly about Rose s introspection and examining her life I felt it was an interesting read mostly because of Rose s character of a super cunning and shrewd businesswoman She reminds me of Sandra Bullock s character in The Proposal a movie that I loved where she succeeds in the business world but is secretly hated by her employees I liked Rose s story because it reveals the inner core of her personality and why she goes after what she wants, and the harsh judgement of other people when it comes to a powerful woman I think Garg manages to flesh out Rose really well trying to balance the business part of her life with the family part, especially her relationship with Helen.Overall Garg has a writing style that flows well, and the book itself is a quick but pleasant read I really like the characters, and I think their interactions and relationships are the best part of this story for me Or I am totally biased here because oh wow do I LOVE Pooja and Akshay I recommend this book for fans of sweet but not mushy romance, and character development Note I was provided with a copy of this book from the author for review.This second installment in Garg s Stories in Pairs continues the stories from the first set but with a slightly different angle In Making the Proposal Garg rewinds the clock and offers a prequel of sorts to Pooja and Akshay s story with additional information than what was provided originally Once again getting involved in both these characters lives was wonderful and gaininginsight into their relationship and bei Note I was provided with a copy of this book from the author for review.This second installment in Garg s Stories in Pairs continues the stories from the first set but with a slightly different angle In Making the Proposal Garg rewinds the clock and offers a prequel of sorts to Pooja and Akshay s story with additional information than what was provided originally Once again getting involved in both these characters lives was wonderful and gaininginsight into their relationship and being given new information about their arranged courtship provides another level and depth to the story we already know Pooja and Akshay are character you can t help but love, they are great together and Garg demonstrates their new relationship and developing friendship naturally with banter, humour, and understandable uncertaintyThe second story, Reminiscence , does not continue the story on so much as offer an alternate perspective With Helen s sister Rose the new point of view it enables an insight into her character and through Rose s reflections and self evaluation a better understanding of her relationship with Helen is generated While this does little to progress the story it does add to character development and builds on the sisters relationship with one another and highlights the hostility between them.Garg is extremely clever in her construction of these stories, especially in these second installments that follow the first The retelling of sorts with Pooja and Akshay, and the new perspective with Rose and Helen change how these stories are viewed but it also maintains the narrative and the feeling that has already been established In terms of construction, Garg uses her words carefully and doesn t waste them putting in things unnecessarily Character opinions and intentions are made clear without needing long explanations and with such few pages to work with Garg manages to tell complete stories creatively and with style.I would still love to see this collection as a novel, even with the alternating stories and character points of view, mainly because Garg s stories are so sweet and despite the length of the stories they capture your attention and are quite interesting Having said that I also love how Garg has approached telling these stories, I think it is clever and creative and I look forward to the next set of stories and seeing where Garg takes the series.A longer version of this review was published on my blog 3.5 stars The teaser for the first story was that we would find out the reasons Pooja and Akshay agreed to get married Making the Proposal is the rest of the story for Pooja and Akshay I think we got enough clues in the first book that I felt like I already knew the reasons so this story seemed a bit redundant to me However, I do like Pooja and Akshay and they were fun to read about I enjoyed learning how they met and reading about their courtship and their early interactions with each 3.5 stars

how they met and reading about their courtship and their early interactions with each other s families I wouldn t mind reading evenabout them in the future.I felt like I got a littleout of Rose s story, Reminiscence She wanted to become someone and left those she loved behind as she struck out to fulfill her dream She does some reflecting in this story and is trying to determine if it was all worth it We also get a glimpse into the thoughts of the man she left behind and the decisions he made I didn t feel like there was closure to this story but rather we got each sister s perspective of what happened between them to get them where they are.While I do find this concept interesting, I think I would personally enjoy one book rather than two I tend to forget details so sometimes it takes me a while to get involved with characters again Or, I just need to read them back to back so the stories will floweasily for me I think the author does a great job of giving just enough information to make a satisfying read but with enough questions to make you wantI didn t feel that this second book answered every single question, and I thought it worked well for these stories I m not yet ready to give a final verdict on these so I m looking forward to readingI received a copy of this book to review My opinion is 100% my own.Mel s Shelves I absolutely loved the first instalment in the series Two for the Heart so I was crazy excited when Ekta told me there was a new one coming out soon I think the idea behind the stories in pairs is such a novel idea, and a very unique way of storytelling,

the idea behind the stories in pairs is such a novel idea, and a very unique way of storytelling, and couldn t wait to read this instalment.This section goes backwards in the timeline of the story and shows how the stories in the first book came to be.I found the book great to read and really enjoyed learningabout the characters and why they made the decisions they made in the first book, it s definitely an interesting way to approach a story.Whilst the book was great, I definitely preferred the first one, although I can t pinpoint why.One point that struck me most throughout the series was the prominence of an Indian couple as the lead protagonists, I ve not come across that in many novels so it was brilliant to learnabout other cultures and their perceptions.Ekta is the loveliest author ever and during my correspondence with her via her newsletter, I loved talking to her, she has a passion for writing and that comes across in her well articulated and interesting stories.Highly recommended, I can t wait to read the next instalment Earlier this year I reviewed Two for the Heart by Ekta R Garg, two short stories that connect in some way I enjoyed the two short stories and am pleased that Garg plans to releasepairs of stories over the next year The next in her releases is More for the Heart, which I have the privilege to review today More for the Heart expands on the

about how Pooja and Ashkay s unique arrangement came to be Since I enjoyed getting to know them both in the first set of stories I was happy to have the opportunity to find out how their unique arrangement came to be I enjoyed their story so much that I would love to read a longer story about them some day The second story, Reminiscence , expands on the relationship between sisters Rose and Helen, who have been estranged for many years Given the circumstances surrounding Helen s tragic accident, will Rose stay this time around I enjoyed this story as well, however I found it hard to connect with Rose I understand that this is part of who she is as a person, she is rather distant at times, but since I had a hard time connecting with her I had a harder time connecting to the story as a whole It was still enjoyable but it wasn t my favourite of the two.Garg has created yet another interesting and involving pair of stories in More for the Heart and I am looking forward to her future releases I enjoy discovering the connection between the two stories, and I m glad that her next installment in the series will feature new characters to get to know and love My thanks to the

characters in the second story 2 estranged sisters that are all they have left of their family I felt like most of the story was retold from the first book and while there was some new angles and
