Well I am fan of MV Kasi and was waiting eagerly for this after reading Devil's Kiss. But this one was let down. Her writing style is impeccable but there were many questions unanswered and loopholes in plot. First in epilogue of previous Book it is hinted that Sunanina had ran away and Shiv was tracing her. By timing this should be around the timeline events occured in this book. But surprisingly it didn't occur. It wa not even hinted that she might have tried to run away in past. Also the timeline is not proper. In last Book, in epilogue, during Anirudh-Aditi's second wedding Shiv is implied as engaged, but in current Book, when Anirudh congratulates Shiv on getting married, he says that he is about to get married again.
Secondly in previous Book, it was clear why and how Anirudh belonged to criminal world and intend to destroy it Coz of his father's dream . Shiv's reasons are not clear in this one, that if he wanted to take revenge with one man who destroyed His family, what motivated him to bring entire criminal world down with it. Why was he a good Devil. I just hope that the author and her team do better job with consistency in third book as I genuinely love her work.
Genre: Contemporary Romance, Mafia Romance, Indian- Anti-hero Romance
Narration: Limited third person
Primary Characters: Shiv & Sunaina (Naina)

Most of Kasi’s books I have read are Indianized, light wonderful read. I was expecting the same from this, but somehow, I didn’t like this book. The uniqueness which I saw in her other books were totally missing in this.
As blurb says: Naina’s political father had promised her to Shiv Jaipal to strengthen his power. Prologue starts with their marriage and first chapter goes back in time to know more about their background and brief interactions. I appreciate the authors effort to give backstory for all the couples in the series, however in this case, their back story prolonged for almost 45% of the book. In that, main protagonist meets each other three times and heroine doesn’t even remember one encounter.
We have met Naina and Shiv briefly in previous book. Shiv is charming and we can see both sweet and rebellious side of Naina. Shiv unleashes all his charm on her and tries to woo her and Naina is an almost willing victim to that. However, this book lagged in several aspect.
What I didn’t like: I personally felt that the first half of the book was dragged more than necessary. Secondly, book didn’t focus on relationship building. In her several other books – we see the subtle characteristics which attracted the protagonist to each other and highlighted their personality, was entirely missing in this. This book was focused on their physical attraction and nothing else. The instance where heroine doesn’t remember their encounter is never discussed again in any part of the book. Some of her previous books had a desi touch in description of place, cloths and food which is missing in this. Parties and get togethers were highlighted in a “Firangi” way. Once they had the physical intimacy, it felt like story was just fast forwarded.
I saw these smaller changes in first Devil’s book as well, it just escalated in this. This book screamed non-Indian culture. The timelines and hints from book 1 didn’t match at all.
Plot moved in slightly slower pace in first half and it got fast forwarded in last part. We could still see Vijay as a loyal friend once in a while. No other intriguing secondary characters. Writing style was good but it lagged a lot in gripping narration this time.
Over all, this book felt like several other foreign romance novels. To me, it was desi book with a
firangi story. It may not be same for you. Read and decide yourself and let me know your thoughts.
If you have read “The Devil’s Kiss” by MV Kasi then you will connect the characters and the events happening in that book with this one. However, if you are reading this book without knowledge of the aforementioned book’s story then this story will come as a separate and fresh read for you. Either way is fine because the understanding and enjoyment of this book aren’t affected.
I finished it in one sitting and thoroughly enjoyed reading it. Another stellar romantic suspense, I heartily recommend this book to all adult romance readers and look forward to reading the next book in this series. Go read it now!
