Travel journo, Kairavi Krishna (Kay) has had it with men. After a series of disasters (losers, philanderers, leeches, mama’s boys and possessive psychos), she is all too tempted to walk out on the prospect of ever finding love. Accompanied by her best friend and flat-mate Baani, she sets off for Goa, hoping to get away from her miserable love life and vowing to stay clear of the male species.   
 
Goa however, has a host of surprises in store for her. Ricky, her pesky ex-boyfriend, is busy painting the town red with his hot new girlfriend. Now what is poor Kay to do, other than overdose on vodka, smoke pot, get an outrageous tattoo and fall off the hotel balcony? She wakes up in the hospital to the tender ministrations of Dr.Vivian D’Mello–young, suave and handsome as hell. Will Kay stick to her guns or will she fall for his ridiculously sexy charms? And what’s up with the mixed signals he’s giving out?

Me thinks
When the author approached me to review her book my first reaction was WOW now that looks a light and breezy read, something that my mind badly needed. The cover design is so captivating and cheerful that it instantly sets the mood for the book and trust me the author doesn't dampen your spirits at all.

To say I enjoyed it would be a lie for I literally lived each and every word written by her. For a moment I was that character as I felt all that she felt about love, life and relationships. The characters are so well defined that they take you along with them as they pass through various things in their life. You laugh with them, cry and sometimes even get angry with the. Being at a stage where the only thing that seems clear is confusion this book looked as if it was talking to me.
 
Now we all have been there, done that where we stand and stare at our life wondering where is it heading to and if it is even heading anywhere. This book is a reminder of all such good times as it makes us laugh and if it doesn’t it surely ensures it tickles you to smile almost on every page with its witty narrative that makes you giggle!
 
For a debut novella the author has done an excellent job in terms of handling the entire piece together till the last word along with your attention! Recommended , for each and every chicklit and romcom lover, this one is surely a grab!
Foodie Verdict
 
This book is like butter cookies - Melts in your mouth!
