HOW I GOT THIS BOOK: Review copy from The Book Club Tours
Mr.Imperfect series by writer Aditi Chopra is a series of 3 stories about the lives of 3 people who eventually end up being friends. As the title of the series suggests, the male protagonists in each of they story are imperfect in one or the other way, yet they are essentially the sort of men who would make perfect life partner. Aditi has beautifully emphasized and brought out the fact that love is all about accepting people with their imperfections.
The first story, House of Love is about real estate agent Nikki, a real estate agent who has been adhering well to her never date a client rule until she meets Karan in the most funnily weird circumstance. This story is a really simple tale of love and misunderstanding. One of the most common circumstance in any realistic story narrated in a simple and neat manner. Nikki's character face the most common struggle a woman faces - the need for recognition.
The second story has a very Indian touch to it. Sonali, a simple girl from small town girl marries a reluctant NRI from Texas, Ishan. When she finally lands in Texas, she has trouble adjusting given that Ishan isn't really helpful initially. This story again paints a very realistic picture with the most optimistic and happiest ending.
The third story, Love Tango is my personal favorite. Maya is sensuous dance instructor who fills up for an absentee regular dancer in Tahir's restaurant. Sparks fly instantly between them and they end up dating. Tahir's almost non-existent creative inspiration ticks as soon as he meets Maya and he ends up writing a book that he always wanted to. That very book almost endangers their relationship yet they survive that storm.
The story line in general was well thought of with enough pace to keep the readers hooked. All the three stories have that feel good factor that made it a pleasurable and enjoyable read. Though I enjoyed the quintessential happy ending in all the three stories, at the end of third story that feeling became a wee bit too much. The characterization was perfect enough for a romance tale.
MY SAY: A feel good fast paced and interesting romance read.
