It was a dream come true to receive an author signed book, ‘The Bestseller She Wrote’ by Ravi Subramanian, courtesy by Blogadda for the book review. Thank you Blogadda. I was enthralled, a gift of Blogging. Here is my honest review of the same.

Overview:
Paperback king,  Aditya kapoor's life is straight out of a modern man’s fantasy. His literary stardom is perfectly balanced by a loving wife and a spectacular career. With everything he touches turning to gold, Aditya is on a winning streak.
Shreya Kaushik is a student with a heart full of ambition. Young, beautiful and reckless, Shreya speaks her mind and obsessively chases after what she wants. And what she wants is to be a bestselling author.
What happens when their worlds collide? Is it possible to love two people at the same time? Can real ambition come in the way of blind passion? Can trust once broken, be regained?

Master storyteller Ravi Subramanian delves into the glitzy world of bestsellers and uncovers a risky dalliance between a superstar novelist and his alluring protégé.

The Bestseller She Wrote is a combustible cocktail of Love, Betrayal & Redemption.

Plot:
The plot revolves around the dynamic Banker & hotshot author, Aditya Kapoor, famous for his Thrillers in the writing world. He is a happily married middle aged man blessed with a doting wife, Maya who sacrificed all her whims at the cost of her husband’s success and a kid of six years, Aryan.
His life is going smooth till he is trapped in a clandestine extra marital affair with an ambitious management trainee stoic Shreya Kaushik, of IIM, Bengaluru. She shares bed to attain her dreams.
Their first meeting starts with bitter arguments which irritates Aditya but soon he is enamored by the beauty of the young, attractive and sexy Shreya and they slip into a relationship. She is a great schemer & she manipulates the opportunity at the maximum to achieve her dream of becoming bestselling author under the reins of a best seller author. Her ulterior motive is to climb the ladder to attain popularity in the literary world and she finds Aditya, the most suitable one who is spellbound and caught in the fire of passion.
Aditya’s smooth life comes to an end and his life is totally perturbed and he is in a complete mess. Maya comes to know of the relationship and she is completely devastated. The story takes a lot of twists and turns and creates a great havoc in his personal and professional life and the shrewd Shreya takes full advantage of the situation and she intensely persuades Aditya to help her in publishing her debut novel. Aditya reads the motive behind the adulterous relationship and tries to move out, but it’s not that easy for him to come out unscathed. In the beginning, the story moves at a snail pace and it mostly covers the romantic & sexual overtures of the duo, Aditya & Shreya. Ravi has tried his hands for the first time on the genre romance and till pages 150 or so, he goes very slow giving a view that the story is been dragged, but after that the pace spruces up and the story unfolds with the strong characters of the plot, Sanjay, a long-term friend of Aditya, Shreya, Maya and Diana and their characters have been etched well. The climax of the story is unexpected. Aditya is fixed in an emotional turmoil and his friend Sanjay too plays against him but still he triumphs all the calamities and finally the story has a happy ending after great upheavals and Shreya too achieve her share of been the bestseller of her debut novel as promised by Aditya. The aspiring authors will get a clue of publishing world and it can be a great help for the novice.

How Aditya manages the pressures and emerges out triumphantly, do grab a copy for yourself and indulge in reading.

I finished it off in just 36 hours, try your luck!

The author has for the first time in his career touched genre, Romance and has tried his best and I am sure he can excel in his next writing. I give him a rating 4/5 for his efforts. It is a pure melodrama and it can bag great opportunity in Bollywood front.
I wish Mr.Ravi Subramanian all the best for his future endeavors.
