Book Review#49: Man of her Match: Sakshama Puri Dhariwal


Kicked off the team for a series of misdemeanors, Indian cricket’s bad boy Vikram Walia finally has a chance at redemption. The only problem: it involves collaborating with his childhood best friend turned sworn enemy, Nidhi Marwah.
Once a tomboy, now a gorgeous, self-assured marketing professional, Nidhi must put aside her personal dislike of Vikram and leverage his unparalleled fame and poster-boy good looks for her latest campaign.
But the ensuing battle of sardonic jibes and veiled slurs only heightens their blazing chemistry. Soon memories of their past fill their present, pulling them back to that fateful day when a heartless act destroyed their friendship.
Can Vikram and Nidhi put their stormy history behind them? Will their partnership have a second innings?

My Take:

I love books with happy endings. I like the romance genre wherein stories are subtly weaved in with a blend of friendship, love, understanding. Give me such books any day and I am game. This book fulfills all my parameters of friendship, love, understanding (misunderstanding rather) .

I had read The Wedding Photographer by the same author and loved the narration. So this time I blindly picked the book and am glad I picked his. Loved the narration, could relate with the characters, their turmoil and the misunderstanding  pain. And the bonus is the story talks of a cricketer. His personality is described beautifully with black and white shades. Perfect but not perfect kinds. Someone we relate to.

Read this and you won't be disappointed. A simple story that puts smile on your face. Ideal for a long flight or bored weekend as this one is like watching a movie; fast paced. Keep up the great writing Sakshama. Looking forward for more books from you.
