Beautiful and Catchy Cover Page… and truly speaking, that’s the reason I picked-up the book. Initially, I thought this book would be just another book, says about young college girl and boy and their love-sex story without any humour. I keep that thought in my mind and started reading the book without expectation. I turned over few pages and didn’t find interesting but still continue my reading with some hope. After 40-50 pages, interesting story get started and I enjoyed the book till last page.

This is a story about protagonist, Kaveri,  thirty aged single girl who knows seven languages. This is a story about her single friend Aditi but completely different from Kaveri. Kaveri read almost all books about men. Yet, she hasn’t been able to find his “The One Great Love” and worried about her still virginity phase. On another side, Aditi is much more experienced in the matter of Love and Sex.

On thirtieth birthday, Kaveri makes resolution – love or no love, she is going to lose her virginity with help of her best friend Aditi but Life has other plans. It looks like book only says about Sex but its more about freedom, compromise, love fights, broken dates, sexual encounters, lots of assignment, Reality Show and many more like where to draw a line. One should never confuse between love, relationships and sex. Losing love after all the compromises makes the situation so much more badly than it might already be. Having a hold on oneself and believing are two things which are very much rooted in the book.

This book is not kind of great love story or great fiction but still you can read it in free time and enjoy it.
