One look into Sapna’s grey eyes and Ram is lost. Only, Sapna’s unable to see her Prince in Ram. Being from a poor family, she has no choice but to go along with the tide when the Maheshwaris offer to bear all expenses of the wedding.

The beauty of Sapna is so capitivating and Ram is a man of every girl’s dream. The novel is another great romantic tale by the author and the sizzling and passionate chemistry devours the reader to read it at one go. The characters are well sketched and one can empathise with each one of them. All things considered, I would say, “I want more” when I finished the book.
The story is well written and as they say “All is well, that ends well”. However, this story is a fairy tale and all the happiness and positivity is too simple to believe in today’s world where girls are being tortured for dowry.
My Rating: 5/5
