Destined is a love story that reminds you of the power of love and why the world loves to read romance, why it is the largest selling genre and why love is not just for lovers but for family, friends and life itself. The author has balanced romance, family and duty in this beautiful book. Yes, beautiful on the inside and out – did you check out the cover?
In spite of a serious topic, that Rubina has brought out in the open the book is a light, flowy read. What plagues our society today - daughters looking after aged or sick parents and how they survive the taunts and discrimination compared to a boy. A love of a parent is unconditional but not so, for a daughter, she must fight for the right to serve and care for her parents. It is as if she marries and relinquishes her claim and love for her parents.
Esha is trying to fund her father’s cancer treatment but fails miserably. Relatives and friends are the first to bail as is her ‘childhood friend and fiancé’ - Ayush. Slowly she realises that she is on her own and asks her company for the loan. Then she finds Rohan, the CEO, drool-worthy, solid guy. Rohan has his own demons to fight but he stands tall around the trouble. Esha finds support and faith with him. The solution was quite simple with the company Esha works for steps in to help her but Rohan has some strings attached to it.
Then there are the fireworks and Rubina does not disappoint. She writes with heart and spunk, her words pulled me in from the first chapter itself and kept me rooting for Esha even though Rohan had my thoughts.
Zaira, the ex is the troublemaker, spewing taunt and innuendos by the minute and Ayush who was to be the golden boy, the best friend turns into a version of her. I thought they were planning it all together such were their negative thoughts. Even though Ayush is sorted out, I felt Zaira could be too. She got off quite lightly for troubling such kind souls.
I enjoyed the tight narration and fireworks between Rohan and Esha. The witty, spunky conversation between the two lights up many a page. Add to Esha’s father who is a ray of sunshine even though he is the suffering making him so adorable. Destined made me happy, made me smile and made me read more. I hope to read many more such books.
Destined is made for enjoying your time as you find a bit of spark, a touch of vulnerability and rocking chemistry within its pages.
Esha is strong, bold, hardworking and adores her father. But she’s human enough to feel bogged down by the crises surrounding her life. Does that mean she’s ready to give up? No, never. What if her fiancé refuses to agree with how she wants to live her life? He has no choice but to get out of her life. I love this woman who has got her priorities right. And she’s not too perfect. Esha can be rude, defiant and has a temper too. Then there is that strong sense of self-respect that makes her exactly what she is. A powerful character, I must say. Kudos to the author!
Words are a powerful tool for an author and Rubina Ramesh has those in plenty, I must say.
Rohan is a hot hero to swoon over. He’s a successful businessman whose company takes care of its employees and is also into philanthropy. I like these small touches that could be received well by the society since fiction does wield a powerful influence over readers. Rohan has a sense of humour and the best part is that he is truly empathetic towards Esha. I think that’s very important in a romance.
The side characters were superbly etched out. I hated Ayush, his mother and Zaira, exactly as I was meant to. I loved Esha’s father and Chakraborty, Rohan’s secretary.
And oh yes, there’s a sizzling love scene that all romance readers would appreciate. You cracked it, Rubina Ramesh. Congrats!
Loved the cover by Floryie BL and I must say the title is perfect for the story.
