What is this book all about?

Working as an assistant wedding planner at an ex-boyfriend’s wedding, Meha encounters the delectably handsome wedding photographer, Samir. Conceited and a flirt, Samir reveals that the bride happens to be his ex. But when Meha finds out that Samir is using their relationship only as experiential material for his novel, she leads him to believe that he means nothing to her.
Their chapter closes.
But life has other plans for Meha. Five years later, she finds herself in an online reality show living-in with the same Samir and trying to understand the true meaning of love.
Will she find the forever-wala love in a world where relationships can be as brief as the messages we send each other and where we are spoilt for choices, whether it’s the screensaver on our phone or the flavours of a condom?
An interesting take on relationships in our times, Let’s Have Coffee is funny and witty, warm and wonderfully realistic story of two very different people who fall in love.

Review

The language is very simple and easy to understand. The book made me laugh and kept me hooked till the end. I also personally loved the book cover. The writing style of the author is amazing and she has spiced it up with humor and pun. This is the story of Meha and Samir where Meha wants to be rich and settled but nothing goes the way she has planned things and Samir is a engineer who turned into a freelance photographer where he believes friends with benefits and does not believe in the concept of marriage. While numerous girls drool over Samir’s personality and he believes in enjoying every moment of life. Meha and Samir are two different personalities and differ  a lot in terms of thinking and beliefs as well as physical appearance too.

When they first meet their exes become a introduction for them. Love blossoms between them and ends up in one night stand. Due to misunderstanding Meha parts with Samir and they meet exactly after five years. Meha is still in love with Samir and when she meets Samir she blames the situations and with lot of twists and turns they become one. The characters have been portrayed well. The Hindi songs  added in the middle of the novel connects with the readers and it made me feel that I am living a moment.

Please wish us luck, so our love can develop like wine slowly, tastefully forever over years, even if we end up like the two butterflies following each other with no binding of marriage and yet together forever.

Verdict

If you love humorous and fun reads then this is the book which I would recommend this book to everyone.
