About the book:

When you love someone, what’s there to prove? Everything! It looks like life is teaching Rohit a lesson. His publishing deals, his relationships, even his job – nothing seems to be working out. To make matters worse, Karan is still trying his best to ruin him as a writer. But when Nisha leaves him, it’s the ultimate blow. To win her back Rohit must prove he loves her enough to do things that matter to her: like helping Tara find a publisher. As Rohit takes control of his life, he begins to find things slowly changing for the better for him too. But will Nisha be happy with that? Will she come back to him? Just for You is an adorable, bittersweet story about love and its responsibilities.

My Review :

This book is what I call an exaggeration. It’s hard to put this one into a genre because till at least 50% of the book, I kept thinking it was a badly executed revenge novel where Karan tries to dethrone Rohit from the title of ‘Best-seller’ by sabotaging his work and taking advantage of the rift between him and his publisher.
But I found Rohit to be such a stupid character and Karan’s vengefulness seemed more personal than sheer jealousy. Yet, there’s no explanation.
The real story starts after more than half the novel is finished. This is where Nisha leaves Rohit and Voila! He turns into a decent guy trying to win her back by helping her friend get published,
Um, Hello? did you try to talk to her at least? Wouldn’t that be more…..LOGICAL?
Well, this book tells us about the cut throat and harsh world that is the publishing industry, but with so many options for publishing these days, it is an exaggeration. It is an exaggeration to call what Rohit and Nisha have ‘love’. And it is an exaggeration to call this a ‘great book.’
But it is good for a one-time read if you want to see some different kind of writing by an Indian author because I have clearly never read a similar plot before.
