Kabier Sehgal is all set to take over the Sehgal Enterprises business from his grandfather. Right before the handover, he finds out something disturbing about a traitor amidst the top management. His doubts are strong about Keya, who has easy access to all the information and is also extremely close to his grandfather. He is determined to expose her, but there is one problem though. Kabier is falling head-over-heels for her and has started to doubt whether she is really the guilty party here.

What I liked about the book:
-> It is a simple, fast-paced read, written in an engaging manner.
-> The friendship between the three girls, Keya, Sheena, and Rashee. It was very heartwarming to read about the girls supporting and standing by each other through thick and thin.
-> It points towards how childhood experiences shape up one’s personality and also how one grows up with trust issues if someone abandons us during childhood.
-> The chemistry between Kabier and Keya is amazingly depicted.
-> Janak’s dynamic with the three girls aka ‘Janak’s Angels’ and the sweet, trusting bond between the Sehgal siblings and cousins.
-> The descriptions of the character’s outfits (especially Keya’s), the places (especially the wedding and events décor) paint a vivid and colorful picture.

What I did not like about the book:
-> The thoughts and opinions around women, especially those of the Sehgal brothers, felt a little patriarchal and anti-feminist.
-> The big reveal about who was the culprit wasn’t really that of a shocker and was kind of predictable for me.

Quotable quotes:
-> You cannot forever live in the fear that what happened in the past will happen with you again someday. You have to give love a chance and learn to trust again.
-> When there is some talk going on then there will at least be some truth to it, else why would people talk at all?

> Sometimes the fact that she always spoke her mind was just not good.
-> Why is it that daylight always gives a different perspective to things?
-> Different things take priority in life when you grow up.
-> Sometimes we are so busy that we have no time to sit back and enjoy the wonders of nature and the most natural things that life offers.
-> Perhaps there is a special someone out there for every one of us. And when we find that special someone, we make a promise to choose them always- to choose them over and above anything or anyone. We feel their happiness, we feel their pain and most importantly we are their reason to smile.
-> Love is indeed a powerful promise.
