My review:

I am glad, I decided to read, anything to look Hot. When market is almost flooding with same kind of stories this kind of concept and book truly deserves to get appreciation. This book clears many misconceptions regarding Plastic surgery. This book also talks about actors and actresses and their tantrums surgeons has to face every now and then.

I was able to connect with the characters right from the beginning and liked them almost instantly. The flow of words, the pace of the story and the fusion of different emotions in the context was perfect for me. The Narration is just perfect and undoubtedly not belonging to a debutante author.

I totally loved the part where Dhruv goes mad after Nandini. Their part in the book is something that I enjoyed reading the most. Most importantly, this offers you various themes in one story like it had love and romance and it had thrilling elements to engross the readers. The sense of humor is just perfect and enough to crack a laughter riot.

Author has presented the story in a promising way. Every single line leaves the thread of emotion. The play of words assists you all the way down to conjure up an image of what’s going on and hence the novel becomes intriguing.
