Story :
Prisha Khatri is a regular college graduate, focused on her career, desperate to finally move out of her parents’ house… and freshly dumped by her successful fiancé. When she lands a job at a prestigious media house, she’s glad to have something to take her mind off her heartbreak.
What she doesn’t expect is to be landed on a business trip with a famously fiery reporter Rajesh Lagheri. He’s travelling to a business conference for a story, and doesn’t seem impressed by her involvement. But as soon as they’re out of the office, things change, and it becomes clear that there is more to Rajesh’s trip than meets the eye.
As Prisha is drawn into the story he’s trying to hide from their editor, their hunt for the story grows more intense, and she finds herself growing closer to Rajesh. As their chemistry threatens to overwhelm them and Prisha is pulled deeper into the Seductive Affair, she must decide what matters most to her – matters of the head, or of the heart

Review :

Prisha Khatri is a career centric woman exhilarated to land a job with The Chronicle, New Delhi. I loved how determined she is and how she could get over her toxic relationship with her ex Akshay who saw women merely as a child making machine and home bound. I loved her outlook and how things were building up.

Her story starts off once she joins Chronicle and meets the ever handsome and enigmatic Rajesh, a fierce reporter.

Up until this point, things were pretty exciting as the two of them ends up being on a trip together to cover a business conference at Mumbai. Prisha soon learns that there’s more than it meets the eye and confronts Rajesh about the actual motive behind the trip.

I liked Rajesh, he’s strong willed, confident and clear headed all the time, but his arrogance was sometimes uncalled for at the beginning. He soon settled in to be the sweetheart we readers were expecting him to be though.

The plot had the potential of becoming something truly eccentric but it somehow lost its charm in the way. A little thin at places, it failed to keep my interest in place. To treat it as a romance would be fair though it was a bit of everything without actually belonging definitely to a particular genre in that sense.

And I spotted a few editing mistakes which was a little let down for me. While discussing the trip, Rajesh had mentioned that they were going to Bengaluru but when they actually got on the plane, the venue suddenly changed to Mumbai. And towards the beginning, Prisha had introduced herself as Prisha Lagheri while her surname is actually Khetri. And if you haven’t guessed it already, then Lagheri is actually Rajesh’s surname! Yeah, I know what you’re probably thinking.

As a reader I felt it has a lot of potential for being an episodic serial with a story fitting that length but as a novel may be it’s not quite appropriate. It was a light and fun read though and so if you want to read something on the go or while travelling to keep you mind off tenacious things or tiredness, you can pick this up with a cup of coffee around.

I would rate it 3.2 out of 5 Stars. I strongly clap for the potential and promise that this story has to offer so I would definitely like people to at least give it a read. If not for the plot, then at least for Prisha because she’s truly admiring.
