The One You Cannot Have: The name says it all. The name itself was catchy and the fact being that this is Preeti Shenoy's Novel made me grab the book as soon as it arrived from pre-ordering and read it immediately. I took me 3 hours to finish this 275 pages of complete magic. Yes, indeed Preeti has created a magic. I cried with Shruti, laughed with Anjali, understood with Aman. This book has it all. It will look like as if a real life is running infront of you. No exaggerations in writing. Preeti's writing style has been augmenting and now it is at the peak. Dissimilar to her previous books this book is from male point of view (60%). This is a welcome change. Writing in opposite gender's perspective is really tough but then Preeti has done it again so perfectly. I could feel the emotions and wave length of every single character differently. --Srilakshmi Ind... on 19 Nov 2013
The novel is fabulous. I'm not sure if I found it so irresistible because the story almost narrates my own story so perfectly or if the story just tugs at your heartstrings. But in any case, it most certainly is one of the best Indian Romance Fictions I've read (and believe you me, I've read quite a few in this particular genre) I'd definitely recommend anyone and everyone to read it. If you are reading this review, please go ahead and place an order. This is one of my two favourites, so far (the other being I Too Had A Love Story by Ravinder Singh) Thank you Preethi Shenoy for this beautiful experience. --Amrut Achar on 07 Sep 2014

How long does it take to heal a broken heart? Can you ever forget that one perfect relationship you had? Anjali knows who she wants—she wants Aman. Aman too knows who he wants—he wants Shruti. Shruti and Aman were once inseparable. Theirs was a love that would last forever and more. Then, out of the blue, Shruti left Aman. A devastated Aman moved abroad in the hope of forgetting Shruti and to heal. Shruti married Rishabh. Now Aman is back in India and looking for a fresh start. But he is still haunted by memories of his love. Can he ever break free from it? His head tells him to move on, to find love with Anjali, but his heart won’t listen. No matter what he does, Shruti’s shadow looms large. Can there be a ‘happily-ever-after’ for any of them? A straight-from-the-heart modern-day romance of unrequited love, of complicated relationships and about moving on when you realise that there will always be the one you cannot have.
