Just Missed is a story of Siddharth, Shreya and Shivam. Sid meets Shreya in his matrimonial search and has a crush on her. When the two starts spending time together, there comes Shivam. Like a Bollywood movie, a love triangle happens here. what will happen next?

The plot of the story is simple and interesting. The story is well narrated by the author. I loved how the narration shifted from Siddharth’s point of view to Shreya’s point of view and then there was Shivam’s Diary. The dialogues written by the author are interesting. I loved how the story was progressing. The language used by the author is easy, I loved when it was time to read Shivam’s diary. It was full of fun and love.  One can connect with the book from the very first page. The pace and the flow of the book is smooth and crisp. There are many themes that one will witness in this book. Love, hate, betrayal, struggle, friendship, relationship, each and everything is described beautifully.

The characters that the author made are Accurate. Though there are so many characters that at times, confused me. I loved Shivam’s character the most. The witty side of him. Shreya and Shivam’s characters were also strong, but Shivam’s character was the best.  I liked the title of the book, though the cover could have been different and little more attractive. This book is a simple and Bollywood style story with some drama. It’s a quick and easy read.

Simple plot, easy Language, little drama and some wonderful characters make it an interesting read.

If you like reading light novels, go for it.

**** I received the copy of the book from the author in exchange for Honest and Unbiased review****

While we try to arrange marriages by matching horoscopes and compatibilities, we forget at times that “marriages are made in heaven”. We all love to say that Bollywood romantic movies are silly, and that they go overboard in their depiction of love, we actually secretly fantasize to be characters in them. Siddharth Gupta (lovingly called Sid) is an ISB alumnus, who is an ambitious perfectionist. He wants to go up the corporate ladder at a faster pace than his age, and is doing pretty well. In his matrimonial search, Sid meets Shreya Malhotra, who herself is an IIM graduate and very career oriented. He finds Shreya the epitome of the “Beauty with Brains” tag and develops a crush on her almost instantly. Shreya and Sid are going steady towards what looks like a ‘soon to be married’ state, but when has life been that simple! On her way to Bangkok for her friend’s bachelorette party, Shreya meets Shivam Malhotra, an IITian, with a living flirting tiger inside him. While Shivam’s cheesy lines ignite hatred in Shreya, it’s only the beginning of a story that doesn’t end in Thailand. “Just Married Missed!” is the journey of a practical arranged crush, chased by crazy filmy love.
