Rohit and Tasha meeting each other at the least romantic places and least romantic of a situation, and before you know they are pulled into the strongest of all tornadoes- Love.
While I really enjoyed the interracial couple from “Rose Garden International” (yes, I read Book 2 before Book 1), the hero and heroine from “Simha International” are a real treat, too. Rohit seems smart and caring, with the right amount of ruthless determination to get to the top, and with a tempting mischievous streak. Tasha is full of temperament and intelligence, and although my heart hurt for all the trials and tribulations of her past, I couldn’t help but admire the woman she’s become. These two are a great match and portrayed very vividly and believably.
This time, the author managed to surprise me with not just one, but three twists! She kept me on my toes and also enthralled by the hotel coming alive. And what’s more, she made me swoon during the sensual scenes and drool with all the lovely food descriptions.
If you enjoy somewhat steamy and slightly suspenseful romance novels set in India, this is going to be a delight for you.
Both Rohit and Tasha have bitter memories of broken hearts. Both have suffered the trauma of failed relationships in the past. And when the two lonely souls come close, passion builds strong.
Both aren’t ready to commit but desperately looking for refuge and comfort in each other and whether this desire will transform into love or not is the suspense the book offers. There’s one more subplot goes alongside and that’s there’s a thief in the hotel. The suspects are many.
The plot somewhat looked misdirected with quite a lot of backstory dumping. The descriptions of the scenes and places often seemed like a drag, and I had to skim a couple of pages to avoid getting bored. However, the author has brilliantly crafted the scenes and the narrative and descriptive are well written. The dialogues to narrative transition is smooth and seamless. The love scenes are well written. They are cheesy and delicious.
The book has a whole bunch of crazy characters. The characters work like a filler to the scenes, and I found me desperate to read more and more about Rohit and Tasha’s building chemistry which was good. Their chemistry sizzles and steam flows off the pages. However, the relationship lacks any emotional connect. I want to read more about emotions infused conversations. The playful banter and dialogues were good but still I miss the description of human emotions.
Often at times, the novel is more dependent on Telling rather than Showing but that can be overlooked with the quality of writing and the smooth flow of dialogues.
Indeed Ms. Venkatraman has a commanding grasp on English language. This makes Simha International a complete package. A box full of steamy and delicious love bites, a sexy alpha male, a strong charming heroine, suspense, thrill, and a lot of sizzling chemistry.
The lack of depth in the plot, the unstructured storyline, and lengthy flashbacks couldn’t overshadow the quality of writing and couldn’t affect the overall rating of this book. The beautiful descriptions, the seamless scene transitions, and the impeccable editing add more stars. So, as an avid reader of entertaining romantic fiction I give Simha International 4 stars. Yes, 4 hot and steaming stars!
Simha International is the first part of Bansal Legacy series and as usual, I got hooked from page one.
Sundari has a knack for weaving a romantic story with a background of issues like widow remarriage, domestic abuse etc. as in this case girl child.
In Simha International, though the main protagonist is Rohit Bansal and Tasha Sawant, I feel Tasha is the real hero in this.
Simha International is a fast-paced, hot romance with suspense and interesting characters which makes the read addictive.
One cannot avoid falling in love with Sundari’s male protagonist as they are always portrayed as perfect and every woman’s Prince charming and Rohit is no different. Tasha’s character is portrayed as strong and is well-defined.
Even though I loved the story I found some links missing. Like for example what happens to Akhil Shetty? And also a little more description of Tarun’s time in the hotel which makes him a changed person and how his parents especially his mother reacts when she learns how he had spent his time in Mumbai working in a hotel would have been an added flavor.
Having said that, I can’t wait to read the next two books of the series which I think will be equally interesting and addictive.
