Love is like a butterfly, The butterfly counts not months but moments, and has time enough. 

Just being together cannot make a relationship last forever, it takes endless moments of love to make it forever.


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.


Love comes in different forms if you wait for forever you will miss many moments. This book is a light read where how a teenage girl finds her true love in the thirties. The story is about Meha the clouds and Samir the wind. How love brought them together after 5 long years. How Meha started her own venture as a wedding planner which was about to vanish soon but Samir like an angel came to her life and her life again started getting Normal. It’s always difficult to face your EX when you know you still love them. The story is all about how Samir and Meha finally got into a  Committed relationship after many tragedies and challenges that life had for them. The Plot of the story is well written with some Hinglish and Hindi songs which connect with the reader and feel like living that moment. The other characters Tanu, Mansi, Sonia, Anusha, Varun, Sarika added twists to the story.

When Meha believed in forever, Samir believed in living the moment. Their love got its way with a reality show where they have to live together. While living together they found true love and both got a true friend in each other. 
“Before being a partner, it’s important to be friends first.”

The story is plotted well with a happy ending. It’s like watching a hindi movie with Happy ending.
How Meha and Samir always met and found true love at waters. They met at Goa, Phi-phi, and Maldives. The language is simple and connects easily with a reader. It’s like a friend telling a story, it’s calm, going and easy read.

A simple, Interesting and connecting story with full of fun and lots of twists in love.

If you love reading love stories, this book is a good choice.
