One Tequila, 2 Tequilas – Book Review

Supriya Parulekar’s fifth novel published by Gargi publishers. The title of the book swirled through social networking sites and was running at the back of my mind. Three days back, I was tagged by a fellow reviewer to download the book as it was on promotions as a free giveaway.
The novel falls under “Romance”, and also, slightly on par with “Chick-lit” and “soft-erotica” genre. A fiction that reminds you Bollywood masti movies of Kangana Renault and Kareena Kapoor. A thoroughly enjoyable, filmy novel that I loved reading.
The story of Kosha, the boisterous and passionate young lady who falls in love with an unexpected person. She is a wildlife photographer who always risks her life for passion and strolls by life’s calling. How and with whom she falls in love? What happens to her love story? Happy ending? – read the novel to know more.
First Impression – The best title and unrivaled cover. Suits the theme, is so ‘pickable’, and I would also say the book is unputdownable. The blurb is again the best of its kind.
Overall Impression: Very cute indeed, a light read for a nice evening. Tempts to read more. I loved the characters of the protagonists. Kosha and Siddharth. Their love making scenes were so passionate and deep. The author succeeds, leafing the right element at the right place.
What did I love about the book? – The conversations between Siddharth and Kosha. The grandma’s character was written well. Descriptions were good.
Rating: 4/5
Wow Factors: 1) Simple and styling language. Perfumed with befitting words throughout. 2) Defined characters 3) The passionate love making scenes were handled very well
Frown Factors: 1) Usage of too many adverbs and adjectives to express the character/event. Sometimes it suits, but many a times it sounds dumped 2) Predictable scenes and climax. Nevertheless, I loved it – given the genre it fits. 3) A bit of a drag, if the book is crisped would have been a compelling read
My opinion: I would suggest this book for aspiring authors who find it difficult to fish the right word to express a feeling. A very light and warm read, women would enjoy more than men.
To the author: Loved your novel and the way you express microscopic details, for example: “She signed on the dotted lines” Would love to see a more crispy and guess-gaming books from you. All the best.
