Book Review - The Girl I Love by Amit Nangia

I saw "The Girl I Love" by Amit Nangia in our mailbox one day. Its romantic cover reminded me Mills & Boons love story series that I have collected, read and adored during my teenage years. I have completely lost touch with this genre for the last 7 years. So I decided to take this book.

Book Blurb
“Every girl has a guy that she won't stop loving, And every guy has a girl that he won't stop fighting for.”
Myra loves Kairav, and she does not even remember since when! Not just his best friend, she is also his partner in a successful dream startup.
Kairav has broken up again, and turns to Myra for relief. His broken heart needs the tender love of a friend to mend.
While Myra has loved him forever, Kairav cannot seem to see her more than a best friend. Time is running out and she needs to take control of her life before it's too late. And it's not like she does not have choices – there is Akhil, who would commit to her the moment she says yes; and Ratan, who would like to woo her to the altar.
Except that Kairav objects to her admirers, much to her annoyance. She has always been around, and the thought of losing her scares him no end. Can Myra break out of her going-nowhere relationship with Kairav?
Will she let her mind win over her heart? Will Kairav ever figure out a relationship beyond his no- commitment status, to discover the girl he loves?
The girl I love is a kind of love quadrangle between a girl and three men. Let's go in sequence, Kairav is an entrepreneur settled in lavish life. He recently broke up and looking for emotional support in his best friend Maira. Maira was in one-sided love with Kairav since college days but she has to face him as a best friend and business partner. Akhil who wants to marry Maira and always tried to convey his feeling to her. Rajat who wanted to be with Maira but his intentions were limited to his lust. Maira was aware of Akhil and Rajat's constant efforts but her intentions were crystal clear towards Kairav. But she started feeling hopelessness as her age was approaching 28.

Frankly speaking, the book has reminded me of the old time. The story is based on plain drama. The narration style is straightforward. Though characters and its emotional sides were portrayed well, the story itself was not up to the mark. An overall touch of uniqueness was missing. I have read more than 100 romance stories, and I found this story repeating in bits and pieces.

Still, the book can be liked by teens who are having crush or fall in love. They can read the book with a blush on their face.

Overall it is a one time read. I would give it 3/5 stars.
