The plot revolves around our main protagonist Aahan who is anxious under pressure, insecure, and skeptical due to his past. He follows the ‘live and let live’ rule. He has a best buddy named Daksh who is a high-spirited, over the moon person who also knows when the wrong time to say a sarcastic comment is.
Aahan strongly believes in friendship and love, who is also a nonsmoker and a teetotaller contrary to his bestie.
Aahan who unmoored from his life and re-evaluating his choices was dragged into an unexpected date where he meets Ridhima and Tanvi. Soon the relationship with Tanvi shifts from friendship to love. Like every relationship, they have ups and downs. I love how the author cherishes simple things happening around the plot.
The whole story was written in the first person, which makes it more intriguing. All-around, a thoughtful and pensive tale with intelligent characters and a satisfying plot. The author provides an accurate and sympathetic portrayal of the protagonist's life. I loved the shades of friendship and love the author painted in the book so emotionally yet smooth.
However, the novella lacks romantic tension, and I never in any doubt that the couple would get together in the end. Although the characters adapt admirably to their circumstances, the plot missed being gripping to me. The storytelling part could have been better. I adored this book despite the tropes I dislike, which worked ineffectively. Overall, this book was great! So funny with all the sarcasm and awkward moments, absolutely heartwarming, and so captivating! I would recommend this book to all romantic genre lovers.
