Does age gap really matter in love ? A love where boy is 25 yrs and an unmarried 37 yrs girl?


Our protagonist Gautam, a 25 yr old working professional falls in love with Roshini, a 37 yr old unmarried woman who is his senior in office. They both love spending time, and enjoy each other’s company. And Gautam makes his mind to propose the lady-love, bring out the ring and start practicing on another girl in office for the proposal.
When his best friend Rohit, find out about this odd love couple. Rohit bring out scenarios for future that were applied to this younger male, older women couple. And soon Gautam is indecisive about his love proposal. Even his sister Richa, couldn’t help him in making such a life changing decision.
At the same point Gautam gets an opportunity to go to Singapore, which he without thinking takes with Payal another girl from his office. The girl is already attracted to Gautam.

Will this age problem concern over love ?
Will Gautam return to India and marry Roshini ?
Will Gautam settle down with Payal, a girl of his age ?

For all those, you need to read this one ๐Ÿ™‚


I loved how the author, Karan Sharma have brought our characters in the book.
Where Gautam is a simple gentleman, his best friend Rohit is a Casanova.
Where Roshini is older yet loved by Gautam, Payal is lovely but lacks reciprocation of his love from Gautam.

The language was easy, and phase shifted from good to slow. I loved the starting and conversations and confusions of Gautam when he talked to Rohit and his sister Richa.
The middle part was kind of depressing where a heart breaks and it didn’t even sound.
I would have loved to see, how Roshini handled this heartbreak. It would have been great, I know the story is from Gautam’s perspective. But I still feel that ways.

Things that worked out for me :

Characters, there were so many. Yet you can identify each one differently except Payal, I wanted to see some more of her character.
The friendship of Gautam and Rohit, even I loved how the Brother-Sister bond was given so much preference.

Things that didn’t worked for me :

The cover page, it missed giving the main theme.
Pace in middle that went slow and didn’t came back as it was in starting before Gautam left for Singapore
Apart from love story, Roshini’s character, her heartbreak wasn’t shown much.

Words that touched

Marriage is all about companionship.

One good act done today always came back to you by karma and so did a bad act.

That is why the heart falls in love, and not the brain.

Final Note :

Lover of a Romantic rom-com ? This is definitely for you.
