BOOK REVIEW - A Lovely Paradox by Mahiraj Jadeja

A Lovely Paradox
Author: Mahiraj Jadeja

Publication Date: 19th January 2017

Book Description:
When Raj, a common Indian man whose background was traditional and religious falls in love with Bella living in USA through Facebook., being innocent and crazy in love, he went for an american job visa against his parents wishes selling his ancestral land to meet her love and propose her for marriage but there was to lot to prove that whether his love for her was real or was it just plain lust?

This is a quick read novella and would be suitable for readers who enjoy whirlwind romances that are unpredictable. Erotic, highly emotional and sensitive, A Lovely Paradox is a novella which will surprise you, and will make you deeply move with a twist that no one expected in the end!

Buy Links:


Raj sells his ancestral home in Mumbai, India, and heads to Los Angeles, USA, in the name of love. After meeting Bella online via Facebook, Raj fell in love, and, convinced that he and Bella are destined to be together, against the wishes of his parents, he packs up and heads off for an adventure of a lifetime. Bella, unaware of Raj's intention to confess his love, believes his trip is for the purpose of employment. Will the challenges of the different culture and lifestyle prove too much to overcome or will Raj's determination to prove he made the right choice by moving to LA to be with Bella beat the odds?


This was a good story of how love can overcome adversities. I liked the "Lesson Learnt" segments at the end of each chapter of the character reflecting on what he's learnt from his engagement and interaction with other characters. With no family support and being in a different environment, Raj finds himself in vulnerable situations, engaging in activities against his better judgement and all his repressed desires surface with distressing results. When his personal and professional life start to fall apart, Raj has to decide between conforming to his parents wishes or following his heart.

Raj is a likeable character with many flaws. He makes a lot of mistakes, but he also learns from his mistakes and is remorseful for his actions. Even though it was a short read, I felt there was a lot of character development, and we get to see a transition of Raj from a naive person who is very trustworthy of strangers and believes he knows what's best to a person who realises that maybe he doesn't know quite as much about love and relationships as he first thought.

While the story was enjoyable, it needs a lot of editing. The biggest problem was the errors, which was very distracting at times. With some good editing, this would be a better and more enjoyable read.

BOOK REVIEW: Meara by Anya Wylde

Series: Legacy of Love
Author: Anya Wylde
Genre: YA Fantasy / Romance
Publication Date: 31st May 2022

Book Description:
A whisper of someone like her being born has been discussed for aeons by the gods. The question is, who is she, and where is she?

Meara lives an ordinary life with her eccentric grandmother and three siblings in a small Georgian house in Dublin. On her eighteenth birthday, her little sister is kidnapped by an incredibly powerful man, and her entire world turns upside down.

Long hidden family secrets tumble out, and supernatural beings suddenly surround her. However, she thinks she is a side character, the hero's friend, and the heroine's sister. After all, her nature is more girl-next-door than a tortured soul with ninja fighting skills.

Her only desire is to get her sister back and keep her safe but to do so; she must battle dangerous beings and reign in her treacherous heart which has begun to beat for her family's sworn enemy, a gorgeous demigod.

Buy Links:


Three years ago, Meara's parents said they were going away for three months and left her and her siblings with their grandmother. They haven't been back to see them since. When Meara's little sister, Bree, gets kidnapped by a powerful demigod, family secrets start to rise to the surface, revealing dangers of a supernatural reality Meara knew nothing about but is very well a part of. With two families fighting for supremacy, Meara finds herself at the enemy's mercy. Trusting him is out of the question. Falling in love with him, well ... that's out of her hands. Meara soon learns that her greatest obstacle may not be her enemy but rather her own heart.


All the mythology and insight into the supernatural reality was the most enthralling aspect of the book. I loved exploring the magical world that Meara was introduced to. It ignited a childlike excitement, which made me want to unveil every bit of its history.

I enjoyed the banter between Kamraan and Meara, which to me for the most part was an expression of sexual frustration. Their romantic relationship was definitely a gradual development, which I preferred as opposed to them expressing their attraction from the get-go. They are enemies, after all, and there are many conflicts and obstacles standing in their way. The hints of attraction and potential romance between Meara and Kamraan were so subtle that you might miss it if you blinked. It would appear as if there was nothing romantic between these two characters, but, in this instance, action spoke louder than words. Kamraan has saved Meara countless times. He basically broke rules just to protect Meara and keep her safe. His actions towards Meara, though seeming somewhat cold and distant, displayed moments of vulnerability, insecurities, denial and fear of admitting his true feelings for his enemy. It took some time for romance to actually kick off, but the chemistry and emotional connection was there from the start of their interaction.

A lot happens in this book. Meara's life was not without its danger and excitement. There was always something happening. Even if a scene presented didn't propel the plot forward, it was still enjoyable just to see the characters interacting with one another. I also liked the fact that the characters had unique voices and personalities, which made them memorable.


I think the book went on for too long. There are moments where things felt repetitive and not necessarily significant for plot development. I know it was probably for the purpose of Meara and Kamraan bonding or getting to know each other, but it made me want to skip forward at times to get to the relevant parts that would see the story pushing forward and getting to the point. I think it's this issue that made it take me some time to really get into the story. It was quite some chapters before I actually started to really like the book as it was taking long to get to the point, with everyone keeping secrets from Meara and coming up with ways of avoiding the topic. It went around in circles sometimes.

I liked Meara and Kamraan. I just didn't love them. They were likeable characters who were portrayed well. I just didn't care for them as individuals the way I wanted to.

The elements for an exciting read are all here, but somehow, it didn't always blend together to incite a level of excitement that made me eager for more.


An enjoyable read full of mythology and fantasy. I would have liked to have loved the characters, but they were likeable enough to encourage me to finish the book.

Author: Nancy Brown
Publication Date: September 9th, 2022
Genre: Adult Romance / Suspense

Book Description:
Every child has a dream. More often than not, they end up being fairy tales instead of reality, because not everyone can have a happily ever after. But maybe, just maybe if we try hard enough, some of us can have our happy ending.

He was going to be James Bond and she was going to be a supermodel. Those were their childhood dreams.

After a brutal abduction that took place when she was twelve years old, Poppy Jones’ parents whisked her across the world in the hopes of hiding Poppy from her mysterious captor, the man she refers to as Surfer Man. The haunting words he left her with before he let her go were… “You were meant to be mine, but now isn’t the right time.”

Ten years later, Poppy’s dreams become reality on a beach in Spain when she is discovered by one of the top modeling agencies in the world. Unfortunately, when Poppy comes out of hiding, so does her captor. Surfer Man has resurfaced, and he is coming to collect what he believes is his… the girl he let go ten years ago. Poppy’s dream turns into a nightmare as she prepares to run again. That is, until she meets Chris Winters, a man who will do anything to protect her, even from himself.

Chris Winters had only one objective in life… join MI6, become the next James Bond. A goal he achieved at an early age. He had it all: killer good looks, beautiful women, danger, and intrigue. It was working for him until it wasn’t, and the killing machine he had become started to overtake him. Knowing he needed a change; he joins Cross Security and meets Poppy Jones. She’s breathtakingly beautiful, but unfortunately, she’s totally off-limits because she is also the client he has been hired to protect. Poppy is not what Chris expected. Beyond the shroud of darkness that has befallen her, he finds a glimmer of light, a light that is so addictive it threatens his carefully guarded control. Chris has to decide. Does he push Poppy away and keep her alive, or can he have her and risk dire consequences if her distraction proves to be too much?

It’s a deadly game to play. Who will live and who will die?
