I finished it within 24 hours It is un put down able, light, humorous, witty and romantic read It made me weep at page 190 and grin furiously at page 250 Loved Dhariwal s writing style, i could detect the cheesiness of a few dialogues inspired by bollywood s romances Added Dhariwal to my autobuy author list. Devoured this crickety romance real quick It s an easy breezy, quirky read with affable characters I loved the raffish, scintillating chemistry between the lead characters Vikram and Nidhi The fact that this book was about childhood sweethearts falling for each other at a later point in life made it appealing to me Sakshama is not only a fabulous writer but a beautiful person inside out I am looking out for her upcoming book Meanwhile, let me get hands on her debut novel I wish her all the best in her future endeavors Such a breezy read sigh AS SEEN ON A THOUSAND WORDS A MILLION BOOKSI received a review copy from Penguin Random House India in exchange for an honest review All thoughts and opinions are entirely my ownShort and Sweet Man of her Match is the COMPLETE package filled with romance, sass, great friends and chemistry filled moments that will have you smiling, swooning and waiting for your own Vikramaditya Singh Walia.Let s be honest even though I m Indian, I haven t read books from many Indian Authors I have some authors on my Auto Buy list Anuja Chauhan, Nikita Deshpande and Sukanya Venkataraghavan but you ll rarely catch me a book other from these three authors in my hands.I d heard about Sakshama s debut novel, The Wedding Photographer, when it released but for some reason, I never got around to reading it It sounded swoony and perfect but now, I m SO GLAD that I got the chance to read her sopho novel, Man of her Match.Let s break it down IDEA I got sucked into this book because of the tropes it was based on Childhood Sweethearts who broke each other s hearts, meet twelve years later after one of them has turned into the bad boy of India and is also on the Indian cricket team Plus, this relationship had all kinds of SASS SIGN ME UP PLOT The plot followed your typical romance novel Boy and girl haven t met in a while, are shocked when fate throws them together, initially only manage to get on each other s wrong side until realising that they re perfect for one another with some variables and added drama BUT I LOVED IT ALL ANYWAY This is probably because from the minute they met, I could feel the PALPABLE CHEMISTRY that surrounded Vikram and Nidhi as well as amazing best friends and I LOVED IT.WRITING I really liked Sakshama s writing She managed to capture the essence of two headstrong twenty something Indians SO WELL and also throw in just the right amount of sass and love in it I ll definitely be adding The Wedding Photographer to my TBR and her to my Auto Buy Author list CHARACTERSOne word for our main man SWOON And then swoon some I adored his character from the very beginning he was just perfect and reckless and your perfect good bad boy, if you know what I mean He knew what he wanted, and he wasn t afraid to go after it AND he was also such a loyal person.I really liked Nidhi as well she was headstrong and played sports and well, Vikram and Nidhi really did make a perfect pair CONCLUSION If you re looking for Romance, Sass and Swoony Men and really, who isn t , Man Of Her Match should be your next read A quickfire read, bringing a crickety and newsy twist to the familiar rom com genre Bad boy cricketer rediscovers good girl marketer, who was also his childhood friend and sparks fly You know the girl and boy finally get together but the glue is really the setting in which it is played out Brand endorsements, celebrity brawls, CSR initiatives, media gossip, gropey Dilliwalas, dildaar Dilliwalas all find place and bring a smile often enough. 2.75 stars rounded up This was fairly middling book I must admit I was eager to read this book after reading the reviews and checking out the ratings here and in and was disappointed that it didn t match that expectationsThe author s writing style contains liberal use of regional language, not that there s anything wrong with it but otherwise I had zero problems with her style of writing The chemistry between the leads was great, the girl camaraderie was enjoyable but my problem was with the storyline The so called history past incident that transpired when the leads were barely teenagers felt serious beyond age I do not know of any normal teenagers who discuss aspects of love of their lives with the girl s father and the father taking them seriously and trying to keep them apart with a flimsy excuse It was filmy and unbelievable If i were their dad, I would have told them to focus on their studies and career and told them to worry about other stuff later This aspect for me derailed the remaining book because the whole meet up in their adult life is overshadowed by this incident in the past And for a book with a cricketer, I was looking forward to one match or something around it and there was nothing So we have a bad boy cricketer who is secretly not a bad boy who is out of action for disciplinary reasons Even those weren t interesting enough, it was mentioned as passing references and the whole focus was on that one misunderstanding of their teenage life leading up to where they are now The saving graces were the good humor, the snarky banter, the chapters with the Trio, their playful and innocent phases of their childhood Rest was just romantic drama, just not my cup of tea.
