Stuck With Me by S.M Bikanu

Blurb (as on Amazon):

Once in a relationship, then estranged and now stuck in an out-of-service elevator…

Khushi Kapoor and Karan Shah ran into each other after two years, inside an out-of-service elevator. Their old chemistry returns, sparks fly again, and their heartbeats synchronise instantaneously.

But their bitter past and their bruised egos stand in the way.

Will they nurse their wounds or let the bygones be bygones?

Will old prejudices separate them again? Can they let love grow stronger this time around?

Will they give love a second chance?

My rating : 3.4/5

Khushi Kapoor and Karan Shah run into each other after two years, inside an out-of-service elevator. As conversations about the past start, accusations about whose fault it was, are also thrown about. Little does Karan know that Khushi has a huge revelation and surprise in store for Karan.

What I liked about the book:

-> It is a story with feel-good and positive vibes.
-> The way Khushi and Karan tease and pull each other’s legs is very endearing and would give the readers some couple goals.
-> The problems that arise between Khushi and Karan are quite believable and we can learn from it through the underlying message that ‘communication is key in any relationship’
-> The entire scene of their getting stuck in the elevator gives a sense of claustrophobia to the reader as well. The author has done a good job with the description and narrative in this setting.

What I did not like about the book:

-> The way the author has described Khushi’s physical appearance can come across as crass.
-> Some of the sentences are repeated.
-> The book needs a round or two of proofreading/editing.

Quotable quotes:

-> Perhaps she did not hate him as much. Perhaps she had not given up on him. Perhaps these two years apart from each other was only destiny’s plan. Perhaps they were destined to be away from each other before they rekindled.
-> They both had their own versions of the truth, and both of them wanted to prove the other wrong.
