Hooked me up. Waiting for entire series
Reviewed in India on 28 May 2018
Review of one of our favorite author Varsha Dixit's latest book A Hasty Hookup. This is Book 1 of The Wallflower series.
Like Doyal said, "I am doing a slow clapping in my head for you Varsha." after reading the reason for naming the series The Wallflower :D
What I liked:
Varsha's signature style of evoking the emotions within the reader. Varsha's books should have a Statuary warning: People around the reader of this book, take cover or change houses till the book reading is over.
The reader (atleast me) resonates all(ahem) the emotions of the female protagonist. The portrayal is so real hence the warning.
The physical chemistry is crackling in this series. If Varsha's earlier books were subtle in their sensuous parts, this one is bold ;) Loved this side of Varsha's writing too. Good going lady, without going repulsive.
I like the way the characters are added, described, the variations in them yet what connects them together, each of their endearing traits etc. Each has a big chunk of the story to themselves.
There is a morale or human psychology angel with the characters or the story itself. This makes it all the more relate able and realistic at the same time.
What makes it more realistic? The smart ass comments, sarcastic remarks, slang or intertwining current affairs. Like these, quoting from the book:
I’m the Sanjay Dutt of my life. I shall keep bouncing back.
Did my crash course in self-awareness put her to sleep? Gina wondered.
Gina, the best thing about a self-created mess is that it does not require a crowd to fix. So freaking fix it.
'Maybe if you hid his meds altogether, we all would be in a happier place. Except for God, of course.’
Although it is mentioned it has a cliff hanger ending like Ojas I wanted to throw something when the story stopped for Part 1. Still every few minutes I was picking up the Kindle to read further & realizing I have to wait for Part 2 :(.
I have read a book in 2days flat after a long time & that too a Varsha Dixit book. Her books have that effect on you.
Patiently waiting for Part 2. Controlling throwing things here, Varsha ;)
