Not So Lovely Love Story

There was a boy and a girl, who met each other for marriage proposal. Both were from different cities and met in a different city. They did not meet alone, but their parents brought them together. This is how arrange marriages in India take place. Hold on, they have just met for the first time.

Let us name the boy as Rahul and the girl as Reena. So, when asked whether Rahul and Reena liked each other on their first meet, they both said “yes”. That means they liked each other. Families further talked about fixing dates for their marriage.

So, till now, the story looks pretty simple and cute. Let us see what happens next. The numbers were exchanged and Rahul and Reena started conversing on phone. Isn’t it normal these day? And good too, because by talking they would know each other better. Their parents were super excited and fixed a date for the marriage.

Their marriage was scheduled almost after a year. The couple was ready to enjoy their courtship. Seriously speaking, the period between engagement and marriage is the best phase of life. Both were happy and satisfied with each other. Days and months passed by and the bond between them grew stronger. They talked on phone for hours, shared pictures, and messages.

Marriage date came closer. In Hindu marriage ceremonies, there are many rituals that are performed before the actual marriage where the bride’s family comes to meet the groom’s family for Tilak ceremony. This ceremony is very special and takes place on a grand scale. So, at both the ends, the families were preparing for Tilak and Marriage functions. The groom got all his dresses stitched for the big day.

In the meantime, just before 2 days of the Tilak ceremony, Reena calls Rahul to do his shopping from her city. Excited Rahul agrees to meet Reena in a hotel. When he arrived in the hotel room, he was shocked, and angry to find Reena sitting with another guy. He asked Reena about the new guy. She informed that this guy was her boyfriend. Rahul was shocked to hear this because everything between them was normal till date and he truly loved Reena,

Reena told him that she is madly in love with this guy and cannot leave him. Her family was not ready for their marriage so she was going to marry Rahul under pressure. She also told him, if he can by nay means take all blames on himself and call off the marriage, it would be a great help for her and that guy.

Since Rahul was not guilty, he refused to agree on this. Reena and that guy forcefully snatched Rahul’s phone and kept him under captivity for three long days.

Now, let see what was happening at their homes. Rahul’s parents and relatives started looking for him as Tilak ceremony was on the next day. There was chaos all over. The groom was missing and the whole house was full of relatives. Nobody had any clue as to what was happening.

At Reena’s house, she was back home and pretended to be normal. She informed her mother that Rahul’s cell phone was off and she wasn’t able to know where he was. So, her mother called Rahul’s mother to know what was happening there. Rahul’s parent informed Reena’s parent that the groom was missing since two days and they need to call off the wedding.

Reena’s parents blamed Rahul for being flicker minded and a fraud and called off the marriage. Rahul’s parents couldn’t say anything and were worried about their son.

Rahul came back home after three days. Their parents were relaxed and happy to see him. Rahul looked normal to them so they did not ask any questions to him. Next day, Rahul informed everything as to how Reena cheat him. He told his parents that Reena was a fraud and in love with another guy. Everyone was shocked to hear this but at the and they were relaxed to have Rahul back home.

Present Scenario: Rahul is happily married to Shalu and a father of a cute daughter. I don’t have any update about Reena.

Moral of the Story: Not always a guy is wrong and a girl is right. Anyone can be trapped and harmed both mentally and physically. Every story is different and every individual is different. It is high time we stop being judgmental.

My Review

This is a sweet, simple, easy to read story where a girl named Claudia is hesitant of falling in love due to the situations happening around her. The whole story revolves around Claudia, Casey (her so called or may be boyfriend) and her elder sister Wendy.

It is a sweet, lovely, adorable, and teen love story where love is the most threatening part of life. Claudia’s decision to not fall in love at all was due to break ups she saw of her sister Wendy and her school friend Ann.

The story definitely took me to my school days where the main focus of some students was studies and scoring good marks while some had cute love stories budding up too. The school days are really the golden days of our lives.

Coming back to the story, Claudia’s relationship with her sister looks confusing at the beginning of the story but then the love between them evolves and Claudia turns to be a caring little sister.

At the end of the story, Claudia emerges as a strong character who at lasts finds that “to pretend” is not at all good in life. I also feel the same. Pretending to be happy when you are not, pretending to be okay when you are not, is not good at all. Showing our true selves to our loved ones is important so that they can help us solve our problems.

This cute story book has everything that should be in a teen love story such as love, break ups, care, friendships, etc. If you looking for a small, full of fun and happy ending, this book is for you. this book will refresh your mind, lighten your mood and make you feel good.

What do you think about this book? Do you want to give it a try? I am sure, you will love it too.

Book Review: Under the Mistletoe by Tracie Puckett

Under the Mistletoe: Goodread

About the Author: Tracie Puckett

This is the second book from the series Webster Grove. This book is as amazing as the first novel. This book has everything love, romance, drama and suspense. I read the whole book at a stretch. I got hooked up with the book. The story is amazing with so many new characters. The story has twists and turns and holds the reader to think what comes next.

I loved the romance between Steph and Alex. Steph’s poem and the response by Alexander Rivera was also awesome. My favorite part of the whole novel was Steph’s poem. It was simple yet full of emotions.

Alex is a strong character, a strict teacher and a silent lover. Steph is also a strong personality and deeply in love with her teacher, Alex. The bond between Alex and Steph is amazing, loving, and adorable. Alex and Steph both are cute.

Calvin is the future step-dad of Steph and fiancée of Caroline (Steph’s mother). The relationship between Calvin and Steph is very sweet. They share a special bond. Calvin understands Steph well. He cares for Steph.

Nick and Issac are new neighbors of Steph. Nick also goes to the same high school as Steph. Both are the students of the English teacher, Alexander Rivera. Steph is suspicious about the behavior of Nick. Nick knows more about Steph than her other friends.

There is a story why Alex hates Christmas and his hatred is justifiable. He lost his parents on Christmas many years ago but is still in trauma. The change in the mood of Alex as Christmas approaches is noticed by his student Steph. Steph also has never celebrated Christmas as her mother Caroline was never interested in celebrating festivals and holidays.

At last I would say that I almost loved every character of this book.. Every character has its role in the story and are well plotted and described. It is nice to see the relationship between all the characters.

Read this book if you are looking for a simple, easy to read, cute love story. I am sure you will love this book as much as I do. The author has done a brilliant work and you will enjoy reading it. This book is available on kindle, goodreads and apple’s iBook. I highly recommend this book.

I am looking forward to read the 3rd book of the series. I am hoping that 3rd book will also be like the this one. Happy reading!!!
