Spotlight: A Walk in the Rain by Udai Yadla

Greetings People,
Lets get to know about a new book: A Walk in the Rain by Udai Yadla.

Udai Yadla


Love is elixir that keeps you alive. Love is poison that kills you. Unreciprocated love keeps you alive but kills every day.

Heartbroken Sunny lives a reclusive life, trapped in the past, living in his memories. He has no complaints about his life but refuses to embrace the present.

Saloni is a prostitute who is desperate to earn money by any means. She does not care about exploiting others to fulfill her purpose.

Fate unites the loner and the prostitute to embark on a life changing journey of retribution and self discovery.

Lovelorn Sunny turns misogynistic after Sandy, the only girl he loved walks away from his life, unannounced. He suffers painful solitude for almost two decades with the relentless haunting of her thoughts. A distressed friend Imran, vows to change his life forever. A surprise planned for his birthday turns into a tragedy that claims the life of his dear friend, triggering a series of unbelievable events. As Imran gets killed by a stranger, Sunny's calm life suddenly turns into a turbulent storm. With nothing left to live for, vengeance becomes his ultimate mission. His reluctant alliance with a prostitute to trace the killer sets him onto a nerve racking adventure of life and death.

Both are bound to a common goal with different motives but destiny has its own motive. A walk in the rain is an intricate tale of intense emotions, driven by hair raising twists and turns.

Read an excerpt from the book...

Surya woke up to the symphonic pattering of the incessant rain drops on his bedroom window panes. He dragged himself to the window in a hypnopompic daze and sat on a chair beside. He pushed opened the window and stared outside to witness the magic of the tender rain. It, actually, was a magical sight.
The tiny specks of rain slapping the leaves of the trees and the leaves swaying to the tune of the rain droplets
 The fresh sprouts of the fluorescent green leaves peeking out through the nodes of the branches
Chirping of the sparrows sheltered in their nests
The fragrant aroma of the rain permeating the cool breeze
And the cool breeze seeping in through the window, forcing him to fetal position, gently caressing him
It was magical indeed. The ringing of his phone at the table near him attempted to disturb his dreamy experience. He silenced it without even looking at it and continued to enjoy the blissful beauty of the pluvial charm. There was a mystic bond between the two. He sat at the window, silently staring at the rain as if he was deciphering a coded message. The ringing of his phone interrupted him again. He didn’t ignore the call this time. He shrugged in exasperation as he picked the phone. His frustration vanished when he knew who was calling. He smiled as he looked at the calling number.
“Hey Sunny boy… What took you so long?” screamed a voice at the other end, as he attended the call.
He had a close circle of very few friends, who call him Sunny. Others didn’t know his nickname. He maintained formal relationship with the rest from his old friends circle. He had to move away from the window to make the call as the sound of the rain was a disturbance to the caller. He had a short call with his friend, desperate to go back to his private conversation with the rain.
When he returned, he observed that the pattering of the rain drops had ceased its long and continuous endeavor. Sunny dropped his phone on the table and looked at the clock.
‘Damn it… The rain tricked me once again.” He was late to his office.
He rushed to the bathroom and finished his daily chores in record time. Skipping his breakfast, which had almost become a habit for him, he wore a pant and shirt, carelessly picked from his modest wardrobe. He didn’t even look at the mirror to check how he looked. He didn’t care.
As he rushed out snatching his bag from the shelf, he made an abrupt stop at the window. He stared at the droplets clinging on the window pane as he slowly walked up to the window. He then connected the droplets form the word ‘SANDY’ on the pane and his lips curved into a smile on his bushy bearded face without his knowledge, which he noticed in the reflection on the window pane.

Guest Post: Is this a stand alone novel or sequel to That Same Old love? to MV Kasi

Greetings People !
Another Guest post with Author MV Kasi. This one is for the book Soulless. I just finished Soulless and it had my full attention & mind for 3days till the minute I finished it.

This Guest post question sure does answer my grieve about the book. Come back for the review. Till then check out the Story at: Spotlight: Soulless by MV Kasi

Our very first Guest Post was with MV Kasi for her book: That Same Old Love another favorite for me.

Review of #TSOL: Book Review: That Same Old Love by MV Kasi

Q: Is this a stand alone novel or sequel to That Same Old love? What are your future projects? All the best !
A: Thank you Nilima.
Soulless is not based on That Same Old Love. However it is the first part of a series.
Initially when I sat down to write Soulless, it was supposed to be based on That Same Love Love. I had even picked a different title and it was to be a complicated triangle love story involving Mahi's cousin. But when I began to sketch one of the female lead's characters, I got too involved. I couldn't imagine penning a romantic comedy as her story. I began to invest a lot of time researching and adding more details towards her character. And then I also ended up changing the story and other characters to match up to my lead character, Sia.

I'm currently working on the second part of the Soulless series, titled Ruthless. This book provides more insight and the back-story to all the lead characters of Soulless, along with a hopefully satisfactory conclusion. I have been telling my friends and some of the fellow authors that the story is appearing to be in lines of Bollywood meets Mission Impossible. Hopefully that's a good combination. :)

After Ruthless, there are at least 6 other stories jumping for my attention to be picked up next. Each of them is compelling in their own way. But there is one particular character from Soulless who is convincing me to work on his story next. I am already intrigued by him. :)
Hopefully, I am able to complete the Soulless series this year. Especially since I have a self imposed resolution to write at least three books this year. :)

Whoaa This answers a lot of things & I am thrilled to see 6novels and 3this year from MV Kasi!
All the best MV Kasi. We hope to read all of them asap.

Book Review: The Evil Twin by PG Van

Good day People !
Attention ! Keep a glass of water beside you when reading this review or book on my recommendation ;) Like I said in Spotlight: The Evil Twin by PG Van Its a HOT Romance ;)
We reviewed Destiny Decides. Check the review Book Review: Destiny Decides by PG Van

Vinnie aka Vinitha Raj is hardly 23yrs old but has tough exterior and maturity of an older person. She works 2jobs and is collecting money to support her cousin Meg and aunt with whom she is staying. She is many times mistaken by strangers for some one else. Her friends are sure she has a doppelganger or twin. She meets or saves Reyan in an accident. The moment Reyan sees her face he is hooked and makes sure not to loose her track. He is pursuing Vinnie and is clear its not a one-night-stand or just a passing infatuation. Vinnie, keeps pushing him away and states clearly she has a lot of baggage and is not interested. Reyan Bhatia too on the other hand doesnt disclose much about himself but keeps surprising her. Vinnie bonds well with his friends Annie and Neel but keeps Reyan at length. Though when they do come close its one hell of a fireworks show. They agree they need each other but Vinnie is hesitant to call it forever.
Will Vinnie & Reyan have a happily-ever-after? Does she let go off her baggage & past? Who is her doppelganger?

What I liked:
Long book but good story. From PG Van's Destiny Decides, this book has more plot, sequence, characters and not to forget her forte: Hot sexy scenes. So the water beside you, if you are not into sensuous scenes after every 10pages :D

The characters are very detailed. I loved Vinnie, Meg, Annie, Preethi, Neel and to some extent Reyan.I wish I had a soul sister like Annie.

The plot keeps unraveling layers as it proceeds. So there is a surprise/twist and the reason for it as you go.

I loved the way the Author describes the drinks Vinnie makes and its reason why the person needs it. Didnt have an idea there are so many names to drinks. Good research into bar-tending along with Bikes and cars. Also the story imbibes life of an immigrant or Indians living abroad and making ends meet.

Loved that Vinnie also has a hobby and when she meets Reyan she again starts pursuing it. Also how Vinnie evolves from strength to strength when she meets people who care for her and support her.

The Hot scenes are scorching. If Destiny Decides went upper level, The Evil Twin goes waist below ;) Go Buy and read the book for yourself instead of letting your imagination fly.

 The humor in the scenes added to it being a fun read. Loved the banter between Annie and Vinnie or even Meg. Loved the scene when Vinnie is ready to do anything for Reyan when he saves Meg. I went ROFL for the options she gave ;) Also the pillow or dirty talk between Vinnie and Reyan was intellectual :D

What I wanted more:
A lil shorter version of the book. It was elaborate but I would have liked it a lil shorter or crispier.

Until next book post, Happy Reading !

Book Blitz: God & His Girlfriend by Priyank

Greetings People !
A new book to introduce. Read on.

Name of the book: God & His Girlfriend
Author: Priyank
Read some reviews:

1. Bani Jain
2. Alisha Patel 
3. Kapil Awasthi 

The Story:

Have you ever met a pretty girl in a suspicious condition with blood stained hands lying in a hotel room where you are staying in? 

Can a love story see its acceptance in the Indian society when the boy is from slums and the girl is born in a rich family? 

How many of you have met those girls who were molested by their known ones when they had not even crossed the age of 14? Isn’t forced and unwilling sex after marriage similar to a rape? 

Whether the prayers offered in love strong enough to bring back someone’s lost beloved from PoK? 

How many of you know a person whose deeds are completely ideal, something which only a God can do? 

Whether religion, caste or community should really be a parameter in deciding the hierarchy and dominance of people living in this world? 

God and his girl-friend is a mercurial story about two youngsters, from entirely different backgrounds who strive hard against their comfort to live with their passion. A boy from the slums and a girl from a rich lavishing family set out on an embarking journey to touch the moon. This takes them through many tests, eventually tying them up in love, followed by an unforgettable service to the nation as true stalwart patriots.

Spotlight: Soulless by MV Kasi

Hello people !
We have loved MV Kasi's That Same Old Love Story. Eager to start reading Soulless. Let us get to know more:



They say when you take revenge you lose a part of your soul. 

But Sia hadn't felt her soul in a very long time. She only knew the soul-crushing fear and helplessness. Especially during the nights, when she fought an invisible enemy that terrorized her during the nightmares. 

Her days weren't any better either. She spent most of them trying to desperately gain control of her life while battling her various fears and addictions. 

She was only twenty three, but she had resigned herself to live the rest of her life that way. Fearing the unknown. 

Until it all changed one day. 

Now she knew. She knew that the monster from her nightmares was real. And also that her soul had been ripped apart from her. 

The memories had brought in fear, rage and pain, along with a strong craving for a swift payback. 

But revenge was a dish best served cold. And it required a complete absence of emotion. 
So now? 

Now she plotted. And she schemed. She prepared herself in every possible way to hunt and destroy her enemy. 

But every mission, however well planned can go awry. Sometimes it's because even though one can be soulless, there is always the heart. A very weak and desperate heart that was being stolen by a man. 

A man who was like a bright spark of vivid colors in her otherwise dark and dreary life. 
A man...who was only supposed to be collateral damage. 

Read an excerpt from #Soulless

"Need help holding the bag still?" a deep voice asked from behind her.
Sia yelped in surprise, hitting the kick-boxing bag accidentally, and had to jerk back, away from the heavy swinging bag. Her sudden movement dropped her phone from her hands onto the gym floor. She could see half a dozen pieces of what used to be her phone scattered around.
Shit. Most of her contacts were stored in that phone. Now she'd have to waste at least a couple of hours to buy a new one and retrieve her contacts list. But she had bigger worries, and a more immediate danger.
On instinct, she widened her stance, ready to swing around and kick the intruder in his face, either to dislocate his jaw or at least break his damn nose.
"Whoa, whoa, easy lady," said a laughing man's voice, moving away from her swing.
As soon as she turned around, the air left with a whoosh from her lungs. And it wasn't because of her move. It was because of the face in front of her.
She kept staring at the amused boyish grin with twin dimples on the man's face.
"That looks like one hell of a fall," he said as he looked down at her broken phone.
Sia didn't even bat an eyelid when the man knelt down and picked up the pieces.
"I think I can salvage this," he murmured, and began to work on fixing her phone.
His eyes were focused on the job at hand and he had an intense look of concentration as he worked over her phone. Sia realized that she was gawking at a complete stranger like an idiot instead of demanding her personal property back.
"Wait, you don't have to..." Her damn voice was soft and whispery as it drifted off.
The man looked up briefly at her and smiled.
That little stretch of his mouth muscles was causing havoc to her insides. And it wasn't because of the panic she usually felt, it was because of the beautiful face in front of her. And it was having a strange effect on her.
What the hell was happening?
Her usual cold and aloof protective barrier was having a tough time emerging. Maybe because she felt a false sense of security around him, due to his blindingly good looks combined with the boy-next-door smile. But she wasn't the type of woman who usually got affected by some pretty boy's face. Then what the hell was so damn special about him?
It didn't make any sense. He was just a guy. Weren't they all the same? Yet somehow she felt a strange sense of connection with him. Especially with his smile.
You are just horny. You are a twenty four year old with a good imagination and a healthy sex drive. Yes. That must be it, she rationalized, looking at his ripped body that was barely concealed in his work-out shorts. He definitely must be one of the personal trainers at the gym. Maybe used to attract the female clients with his smile and body.
"Like what you see?" he asked, without raising his head. He was still working intently on her phone, but had a small smirk on his face.
At his teasing remark, she snapped out of whatever thing had possessed her.
What the hell was she doing? She asked herself again.
He's just a good looking guy, and she's seen, and also been with several guys who were similarly good looking.
"I think I can fix my phone by myself," she said coolly, extending her hand as irritation slowly crept into her.
"I'm almost done. This is a newer model, so there are smaller parts that need to be placed in the right sequence. And besides, I caused you to drop it in the first place," he said.
"True. But you have already done enough damage. Maybe next time, you should stop and think before sneaking up on the gym members, during the early hours of the morning."
At her stern set down, he stopped what he was doing to glance at her.
His eyes blazed as he looked at her face, and then slowly, and unashamedly, he dragged his eyes down the length of her body, lingering on her toned arms and legs.
Instead of being offended, she felt his gaze ignite something. Soon, a warning siren went off in her head as images of them spending a dirty night ran in her mind.
Sia recoiled mentally from those images. She had stopped having random meaningless sex almost a year ago. And more recently, she had promised herself, she would not be distracted from her mission because of anything or anyone.
But right then, staring at the beautiful man with a sweet, melting smile, and a contradictory brazen look, she was ready to jump on him on the gym floor, and take what her body wanted from him.
Before she pounced on a complete stranger, Sia grabbed her phone from his hand, and took a few steps away from him to give herself some space. She subtly took some deep breaths to calm down even as his eyes continued to assess her.
When his eyes met hers, he smiled again. "By the way I'm Ajay, and you are...?"
Before she could reply another man's voice interrupted them. "Good morning, Ajay. How have you been bro?"
 A brief look of irritation passed on Ajay's face, but he turned and smiled openly at the guy who joined them.
"I'm doing great Ravi. It's been a while, and quite a set up you have here..."
Before he could finish catching up with the other guy, Sia began walking out from there. After collecting her water bottle and work-out towel, she moved towards the stairs, and glanced back briefly towards him.
He was still talking to the other man, but his eyes were on her, laughing at her in amusement. As though he knew she was running away because of him.

Book Review: Shadowed Promise by Sunanda Chatterjee

Greetings People !
I finally read a book by Sunanda Chatterjee. Now I know why everyone loved Fighting for Tara so much. While reading and at the end of the book I was like: Now this is some writing and an Author!

I finished the 500+pages book in less than 24hrs, which is a feat considering my reading speed and distractions. I never had to remind myself to pick up the book. I was unconsciously pulled towards the book, the story is so engrossing.

Get to know a little about the book: Spotlight: Shadowed Promise by Sunanda Chatterjee

Shadowed Promise by Sunanda Chatterjee
Shadowed Promise by Sunanda Chatterjee

Moyna Sengupta 8yrs old, is the root of destruction according to her Kakima or aunt-uncle who have to clothe,feed and educate their niece when her parents died. Moyna's only friend and a person she can say loves her is Tania her cousin. Tania and Moyna are like sisters and look alike too, except in color. Moyna strives hard to be her best self and is excellent in her academics. She is preparing for her SAT exams and plans to study abroad if she gets a scholarship. Karan Singh her classmate is her only friend but she has been forbidden to meet him by her aunt-uncle. Tania, returns to Mumbai from Delhi when the Mumbai riots break out. She enters heavy with child and crying. Her aunt-uncle are horror stricken to see her in this state, thinking it should have been Moyna instead of Tania in that condition. But Tania doesnt tell anyone who the father is or how she came to this state. She urges Moyna to study further, get out of this place soon. When Tania, goes into labour, she is stabbed by the angry mob when going to the hospital even though Karan is slayed in the process to safe them. The baby is born but Tania doesnt make it. But before she dies, Tania makes Moyna promise that she will protect the Baby at all cost. In the moment, Moyna promises.

She gets a full scholarship but decides to stay back. Her aunt-uncle blame Moyna for the Riots, the death of Tania and Karan. So she reluctantly leaves to study abroad and put her past behind.
She tries hard to forget the family she never had and about her promises. The thought that she is cursed, is so ingrained in her mind that she builds a wall around herself. Not letting any love, affection, person enter her facade least they die too due to her curse. Still Lupa and Aaron stick to her as the best friends and family.
Sameer is their senior and is drawn to Moyna. But Moyna keeps pushing him away repeatedly. Sameer wants to become a DA and then later run for Mayor, instead of becoming a lawyer and in the process taking over his father's practice.
Their mutual attraction pulls them closer but Moyna is always secretive and cautious. Sameer is at the top of his political game when Moyna's past can destroy everything they have worked for and deserve.
Does Moyna's curse strike again? What will it take this time? A life or a relationship?

What I loved:
Plot, characters, flow, ... everything. The story pulls you into its vortex.
The oppressive feeling of Moyna and her life is evident everywhere. The pathos pours through Sunanda's words. It left a deep depressing feeling in me for couple of days. Now Im fine :), hence wrote the review after letting 2days go by.

The characters are life-like. You hate Kakima, want to shake up and lecture her uncle for siding with Kakima with his silence, love Tania, Lupa( her entire family), Aaron(pat him for standing by Lupa), Sameer(kick him sometimes for being a Male ! ;) ), Sameer's parents, Jeff, Priya(the snotty sister :) ), etc.

The descriptions of riots or the gardens of the University are vivid. They imprint on your mind. You want to scream at the bloodshed, punch the bikers at the bar, sob when 26/11 happened, console Moyna and Sameer when she is in labor, hug Moyna when she cant love her daughter for fear of the curse, etc.

The flow of the story is consistent, never a dull moment. The language is very good. Nothing fancy just simple words emanating feelings.

The healing and relief Moyna receives from people who truly love her.
The concept that what you place your trust and faith in, can overcome anything in life is beautifully explained. Also how Moyna clings to it for dear life may it be the pendants Lupa gives or the theory that Lucy loves her.

What I wanted more:
I am more observant and particular when choosing my words when pointing fault or talking to my son or family members. Some words can harm and some can heal. Thanks to Sunanda for driving home the point.

Hope to read more of your writings Sunanda. All the best in all your en-devours :)
