Doctors are generally, considered as the synonyms of God (for the masses) because they are our life saviors. Ironically, they sometimes are not powerful enough to save themselves from the infectious heart - disease identified as ‘Love’. The doctor duo Simi and Rudy from Reet’s latest are as infectious as disease in itself. Within the book, as soon as you are introduced with the characters you will be infected with the rosy feeling and sense love all around you. As shared, they both are medico professionals; Simi is a trainee who is researching for cancer but Rudy is an experienced professional, a surgeon. Both, the characters are brainy (and fleshy), powerful and infectious enough to leave a lasting impact in your heads and hearts alike. You will find it interesting to unveil how their professional and personal lives get intermingled and how they come out of the gyrations and convolutions with relaxing and rejuvenating smiles on lips. As expected, they deal with the twists and turns intelligently but remain calm and composed during the course of actions. Obviously, the credit for such a victorious account goes to the author – Reet herself, for etching such characters oozing love (romance) from every single word and every single emotion penned. Yes, it is not as easy as said. She successfully maintains the codes of the profession and develops not only the story but love as well.
Should this book be deemed to be a fantasy, given its entrancing, straight-out-of-a-fairy-tale storyline? Or should we designate it as a rendition of a mellifluous love ballad, that draws two hearts together? This amazing story moves far beyond being restrained into the "romance" term, taking us through the moments of passion, love and emotional dependence of Rudy and Simi. Written by Reet Singh, for the Mills and Boon Indian Author Collection, the tale sparks off with a life-changing student programme that Simi Gill takes up, which takes her to a land far beyond the seas, where the man of her dreams resides. To be released in Nov 1, 2014, the story is set in contemporary time frames, predominant in USA and ends amidst the delightful colours of India. This review was based on a pre-release copy from the sweet Reet! :) The novel will make heads turn, for sure! Be it the charming vulnerability of Simi Gill or the rugged emotional conflicts of Rudy Bhatnagar, the characters are absolutely endearing. It's immensely difficult to not find this formidable book remarkable, if not exquisite. So for the very reason that the book stands for its convictions reinforcing the power of love, I loved it. Simi Gill is an ambitious student from India, on an overseas student programme in USA. She ends up owing her life and dignity to Rudy Bhatnagar, an Indian-American living there. Despite being undeniably attracted and pulled towards each other, they both hold their feelings back, owing to several factors that wreak havoc in their minds. The story takes us through their warm romance on one side and the heart-wrenching days that ply them away from each other. I loved the book's flowing style of narration. Reet's mastery of language is a sheer pleasure to read. The ease with which she weaves the plot and builds the pitch is very impressive. If I
When doctor-in-training Simi Gill finds herself in a strange bedroom in New York with half her clothes missing and a six foot hunk murdering an Elvis Presley number with his off-tune warbling, she is all ready to ward off a predator. The dishy stranger, however, turns out to be her saviour. What’s more, he is a surgeon with a fetish for turtleneck sweaters and goes by the name of Rudy Bhatnagar. Hunk or not, Simi has no intention of giving in to the sizzling attraction between them and breaking her vow of never falling for adorable men. She has only weeks to go before returning home to Chandigarh, and she is definitely not into a holiday romance. Besides, the devastatingly attractive Dr. Rudy Bhatnagar still seems to carry a torch for his ex-wife. But Murphy’s Law strikes and Simi and Rudy keep crossing each other’s paths. Can Simi resist Rudy’s charms and stick to her agenda? Read the book to find out. Reet Singh tells a charming love story. The writing is fluent, the banter between the couple is witty. Grab a copy, you won’t regret chasing these two from New York to Chandigarh with a slight detour in Kolkata.
Doctors. A dog. A baby…..all of this wonderfully interwoven into the lives of a ‘baritone who is tall and broad and scrumptious’ and ‘a woman mussed up from sleep , brushing tangled curls out of sleep-hazed eyes’. Witty repartee and beautiful settings…. Reet Singh at her best. Is there a story in Shubra and Richard’s romance, Reet Singh ?
If you are looking for a passionate romance, witty dialogues with fluent narration, handsome doctor and a happily-ever-after, then ‘The Cure Was Love’ is the story for you. And this is the first time I have read a story with Indian characters in American setting, complete with Macy’s parade and Thanksgiving celebrations, totally entertaining. Gorgeous Simi (going to be a doctor) meets Rudy (a handsome surgeon with bad handwriting), in his pyjama top, on a cold November night, with Murphy’s law in full force. The night includes a dog, a bullet and a twisted ankle, and Simi ends up under his scalpel. Intriguing! Reet Singh has penned a charming story, which is thrilling and humorous at the beginning, goes on to become emotional with the right amount of mush, to being passionate, then tugs at your heart when the lovers are separated due to external circumstances and their own misgivings. Eventually they get united in India, with dashing Colonel Shamsher Singh playing the part of cupid to perfection. Simi’s character truly reflects the Indian girl’s shyness, courage and honesty, whereas Rudy is the perfect hero showing compassion, understanding and maturity in the face of Simi’s uncertainties. The fire between the two ignites slowly and sizzles as they helplessly fall for each other. A highly recommended read for romance lovers. By Ruchi Singh (ARC Reviewer)
