#BookReview: You’ve Got the Wrong Girl by Sreemoyee Piu Kundu

On the jacket:

On a sultry night, on a deserted lawn overlooking a moonlit Taj Mahal, two strangers make passionate love and promise never to meet again… But promises are meant to be broken, right?  This is the story of Dushyant Singh Rathore – the 30-something bestselling author of Kinda Cliched, a blockbuster romance novel based on his one night of bliss with a girl whose name he does not know. Under pressure to produce a money-spinning sequel – from his obsessive fans, his hit-seeking publisher and a sceptical journalist ready to expose the true-story angle as a marketing gimmick – he sets off, three years on, to find the elusive girl whom he had promised never to seek out.  When his quest, many twists and turns later, leads him to the unlikeliest of places, Dushyant discovers there’s a little more to this love story than he had anticipated. Will Dushyant get a second chance at love? What if the wrong girl was really always the right one for him?  Delightful, unconventional, heart-warming, You’ve Got the Wrong Girl! is a roller-coaster ride through love, lust and everything in between.


A quick read, I read You’ve Got The Wrong Girl while travelling and since I was travelling alone, the boom made for a good travel companion. This is a story of a best selling author who wrote a story taking a leaf out of his own life. Since that story did remarkably well, now Dushyant is standing face to face with a demand for a sequel. But to write a sequel, he needs to find the heroine of his story. Now, he has practically no time in his hands and needs to find the girl whose name he doesn’t know.
Dushyant is the kind of guy I wouldn’t want to know in real life, ‘coz I really wouldn’t know what to make of him. We’ve all known men like him and have shared a very strong love-hate relationship, which had the power to destroy us both. The book begins with two strangers meeting at a party and though they didn’t intend to, they end up spending more time together than they had planned. The story takes time to grow on you, so keep reading. Dushyant doesn’t make much sense in the beginning. The cover is attractive and inviting – when I read the blurb and saw the cover of the book, I wanted to know more about Dushyant and his mystery woman. Does he find her? What happens after that? Does the story end with another story or does Dushyant get to win his lady love? There are too many questions to be answered and I suggest you read the book and know!
