This book feels like an Imtiaz Ali musical with female protagonists breaking stereotypes like never before. And male protagonists believe in them and make readers go crazy with their charm. Three different authors blend the stories in a way, making them memorable.
The highlight of this book is the narration. The authors have a distinct narrative style, but it doesn’t feel like three different narratives. The words have a grip of flowing swiftly, capturing the reader’s attention.
The book narration is hooking and one of a kind where even after the book ends, we want to explore more about their lives, hobbies. The fact I loved the most was how the authors explored different professions.
The writing is bold, romantic, witty, cozy, giving you butterflies in the stomach. But it’s not just romance but so much more! Their writing has a charm of freshness to it. You are surprised, by the way, they make the female protagonist look – relentless, self-sufficient, confident.
It’s about personal choice breaking the stereotypical norms, and it is a new vision of the way we see romance stories.
The theme of choice to choose makes it one of the best romance books I read recently. The author promises a bachelor’s party you won’t ever forget.
