ACT ONE SCENE 1
A novel in my hand. Looking carefully you can make out that it is Wrong Means Right End. Hysterical laughter fills the room
He: Is it funny?
Me: hell ya!
He: What is so funny?
Me: oh…ummm it’s this erotic scene.
He:(with raised eyebrows) And is it suppose to be laughed at?
Me: (chuckles inwardly) No!
He exits giving Me pathetic looks.
So you see this novel has made ‘Me’ chuckle for all the wrong reasons.
I got this one from someone who bought it while traveling and didn’t care to tag it along her way back. Usually if I don’t like a novel, I don’t hesitate in abandoning it midway. But this one here, It made me want to read it no matter how many times I rolled my eyes, banged it down, thought of giving up. Why you ask? One because it is given a rating close to 4 on good reads and two because I wanted to be able to write that follow.
What does the synopsis say.
After a failed marriage, Sneha, a single working mom, has no time, or inclination, for love. She resists every matchmaking attempt made by the overzealous Nandini, married to industrialist Aditya. But then the past intrudes in the form of the gorgeous and rich, Nikhil, who brings along Gayatri to break-up her ex-fianc, Adityas marriage. Sneha enlists Nikhils help to salvage the situation. But how does she even talk to a man who clearly loathes her? As Nikhil and Sneha try to grapple with their egos and combustible chemistry, love blossoms.
Wrong Means Right End, an exuberant story about love and friendship, is filled with surprises and a wicked twist at every turn.
ok so there is this irresistable man who is filthy rich attractive, arrogant, restraint with a mysterious aura.(copy paste Darcy ) and of course rarely smiles may be once in a light year.
Then there is this woman Sneha, a single working mom, has no time, or inclination, for love. She resists every matchmaking attempt made by the overzealous Nandini. Resists? Really? Is that why she lands up every weekend without fail to nandini’s place for “meetings”. She has this great knack for driving cars so much so that she can beat anybody in Go kart(!). Can mispronounce cuss words like a pro. And when she is doing none of the above She has deadlines to meet in her office.(convenient, isnt it?)
Darcy Nikhil and Sneha have this unpleasant history which is actually revealed after a lot of unpleasant pages.
Where Sneha is mesmerized by his green hooded eyes (whatever that means!) He is mesmerized by her strained blouse tightening across her chest. In fact there are so many references to his hooded eyes that I will call him the hooded eye chap from this point on. So this hooded eye chap even gets to smile after he falls for Sneha.
Then there are color changing eyeballs! Who doesn’t like Colorful eyeballs! I want!
He saw anger darken her hazel eyes.
Her hazel eyes widened at the caustic expression that briefly lightened the inner circle of his irises.
Sneha’s hazel eyes took on a reddish blackish tint around the rims.
…could not ignore the various shades of brown, golden and hazel mingling in her startled eyes.
He saw Sneha’s hazel eyes dilate and darken to the shade of molten caramel.
Desire had turned his irises to a dark brown.
Nikhil saw her light eyes darken and his green pupil dilated in response.
Nikhil’s eyes became a darker shade of green as he stared at the woman beside him.
A lot of iris sex going on there I tell ya.
Another talent of theirs is holding an entire conversation telepathically.
Here are a few exemplars. Mind you all the conversations below are in their mind. It seems they don’t have to speak out to each other like us inferior beings.
…I was just asking.
Bad question. Big time!
Then a few lines later
Sorry for me?
Shall I ?
Sure. Just be careful.
What do I do?
Make this short and quick.
The erotic scenes are just plain awkward and are sensual at their least! The compilation involves lot of kneading and molding and some tongue tracing.
His hands moulded and kneaded her sensitive breasts
His probing fingers very slowly, very intimately rose higher on Sneha’s leg gently kneading her skin.
Nikhil kneaded her hot skin roughly with his fingers.
As Nikhil’s hands shifted, stroked and kneaded intimately.
To add-on to this, the hooded eye chap will only make advances when She is vulnerable. Like while she is driving or is tied up (like seriously!) and if you girls still think that he is the dream man, remind yourself that he watches unsuspecting women live on his computer screen wiping themselves dry. Seriously who does that? Wait! A pervert!
I could not stop laughing at this scene where this hooded eye chap decides to put an end to his misery and starts to get intimate with the taut chest and she blurts(which she surprisingly does a lot) about how she has googled him. He being a jerk that he is gets rude and aggressive. Moments later after a short apology he commands her (“asking you not telling you”) to listen to him as he decides to divulge it all.
“Maybe it’s time I shared a few things with you.”
And what does she have to say?
Lo and behold. the two magic words.
Seriously lady when finally he is ready to give away his big dark secret this is what you care about.
What put me off : Some words have been exploited shamelessly you will see them everywhere. The writing is amateur and there are things that go on and on without taking you anywhere useful.
What turned me on: The last few pages and only because I was glad that I would soon be over with it.
PS: I would be using my old friend google for gifs until I start making them myself :).
