There's just something about Starville Towers. Throughout the 3 books, we've been a part of the lives of the residents living there, right from the youngsters to the busybody aunties whom we all can relate to. Everyone got their HEA and I so wanted the reticent Jawad and Tazeen to have theirs as well.
"It is the lack of communication that leads to an unhappy marriage". This holds true for Tazeen and Jawad.
Tazeen asks for a divorce from Jawad as she feels that there's something amiss in their relationship and in her life. And after seeing her siblings in love and having careers, she too wants the very same spark and a feeling of being worthwhile. Jawad is shocked and shattered as he loves her, but both being introverts, aren't able to express their feelings. It is after the realisation that they would never be in each other's life again that they start acknowledging their feelings and working on their marriage. Their rediscovering each other, forging a friendship is a joy to read and is narrated so beautifully and sensitively. Their sizzling chemistry is electrifying and in a way helps them to find their missing mojo.
At the start, I was annoyed at Tazeen for playing Jawad as per her whims and convenience, but as you get to know her, you empathize with her and why she took such a big decision. Her vulnerability and insecurity is so relatable and you start loving her. And Jawad, what do I say about him! I am totally and completely swooning over him. He is adorable, sexy, sensitive, loving and the best husband ever. In short, he is Perfection. He is the star of the story. Sorry Nazish and Yasir, but now this is my favourite in this series. One of the hottest book I've read, this one is highly recommended. Waiting for Iqra's story ❤️
One of my favorites in 2022. Amazing love story beautiful characters, crackling chemistry and a beautiful narration. I loved how the story progresses and how Jawad and Tazeen open up to each other.
Loved the way Jawad is developed. One of the best husbands. He's hot, intense, understanding and reserved. One who tries using his intensity to out across his feelings. Always in love, considerate and the one who reads what his wife feels and tries to improve his relation with her. He's hurt and shocked when Tazeen asks for divorce. For someone who has always loved her, he's never been able to express his feelings and this creates misunderstanding between them.
Tazeen has always loved Jawad, but when she sees her other cousins, brother and sister having a romantic equation with their partners she starts craving for that. She sees them using sign languages and making efforts to spend more time with each other away from others she starts feeling the gap in her own. Both introverts are never able to express what they feel and a distance starts creeping in.
I loved the way they start coming out of their comfort zones and make the other realize what is missing. A coming of age love story which moves strength to strength.
Beautifully crafted, this also talks about the importance of communication and how the lack of it can create chaos.
This novel is way off the usual sweet and gentle romance that the rest of the books in the series follow. This book takes you by surprise and how! The usually demure Tazeen, desperately in search of herself, finds hot new ways to explore her relationship with husband Jawad. I nearly fell of my seat when I got to that particular part when they return from work! (Not spoiling it for the rest of you) Jawad on the other hand is such a ladies’ man. They don’t make men like him in the real world anymore. He is all about love, trust, respect, and completely in awe of his wife evens when she wants to divorce him. This novel explores a different reality in marriages where couples get complacent about expressing their love and it is such a wonderful read.
If you have read the Reluctant Romances series, which is highly recommended, Starville Towers is known to you.
Tazeen is struggling to figure out her life, and has asked Jawad for a divorce... She's looking for a HEA just like her siblings , something that's missing in her marriage... my heart goes out to Tazeen and Jawad when I see their love and their struggle to express themselves.... but Tazeens bold moves, thanks to her gang of girls helps bridge the distance and u r all smiles by the time u finish the book
If u think the 1st 3 books are good, this is even better, and I m sure, the best is for the last...
Waiting for 'Lucky for you'- Iqra and Saad's story
Andaleeb has a way with words, and she weave her readers with her story until she doesn't want them to set free. This book is no. 4 from #ReluctantRomances and the most hottest she ever written till date. The chemistry between Tazeen and Jawad will blow your minds away. The constant hunger for eachother they feel and how they never showed it to each. "Conversation is key" for happy couples, well read this novel and know why they say this. So many unspoken feeling, so much simmering passion beneath the cool nonchalant facade they feel but never disclosed with eachother. It's a perfect home coming book with beautiful ending. Trope; Office romance Second chance romance
Oh… I just wish all the couples who are leading a dull & mundane life can draw some some inspiration from this book. I was so hooked up to the story that read the entire story in one sitting. It’s a beautiful love story with a strong message that everything has its own importance in life. In the absence of communication, u loose beautiful moments of life & hurt the person who wants to make relationship work. Life is not at our beck & call, it’s not necessary that when we want to mend things at our convenience things will happen our way.
There is nothing extraordinary about this storyline but still there is so much to get inspired from. I can bet it will touch your heart if you’re a lover of Romance genre.
Was waiting for this book since I read first book in the series.....
Jawed is dream husband....the way he handled the awkward situation...shows why he is the CEO.... Tazeen is Tazeen a human with all good and weak moments on a journey to rediscovering herself and her love ...
Andaleeb' style of characterisation and story writing is so nice and so Relatable. You feel that you know these people. Completed the book within 3hrs of release on 25th . You have to finish.. can't pause..and crave for next story.. waiting for my favourite Iqra.....
OMG! Jawad is the best book husband ever written about. He is hot, intense, considerate and oh so much in love with his wife. Andaleeb ma'am has a way with words that resonates with you and make her stories real. This book will make you blush and crave for the love the couple has for each other. There is no way one can leave the book midway.
This is the story of a married couple who find themselves disconnected and have trouble finding their way back to each other. It is peppered with enough spice for people who like physical intimacy in romance, and a whole lot of contemplation about emotions and communication. You'll fall in love with the protagonists just as they did with each other.
