SYNOPSIS on Goodreads

Avesh Mathur, a techie stumbles upon the enchanting and sultry Spreeha at work. Every man in his office wants to have her. But he is struck with horror. She happens to resemble a girl from his past. The past that he’d do anything to keep under wraps.

Spreeha lives next door to Avesh. She watches him furtively day and night even though she has a lover. He intrigues her, however, she’s not done with her lover. She wants them both because they remind her of someone.

What tragedy awaits Avesh? Is the girl he’s madly falling for as beautiful on the inside as on the outside? Will he finally have to face the frightening truth that he’s been stashing for two years?

My Review

Love is a pure emotion but lust – lust is a stealthy hunter which looks for the prey in the hiding, gawking at it from the corner of the eye, and then consuming it all at once!

Avesh bumps into Spreeha who is a sultry beauty at his office. Something is amiss and he is anxious to find his past connecting the dots with Spreeha. His forgotten and buried past comes haunting him and is fearful of what outcome he may have to face. Thus, follows a meandering tale of falling in love, getting trapped in the lust, and liberating in the power of love.

A fresh story with an important social message constitutes Done With Her. Written in a lucid language with an interesting cohesion, this book does spell its magic on its readers within 86 pages. What it highlights the best is the power of love, the true meaning of being in love and avenging the pain inflicted upon your love. It also brings forth the power of women and appeals them to be bold and courageous in standing for themselves. The love and lust interspersed in an engaging plotline would surely compel the readers to finish it off in a single seating.

What I really didn’t appreciate was the treatment of the plot. There’s an impactful story but it has not been exploited well. Its potential lies in shambles, according to me. If explored more, the storyline could have been terrific. Also, I felt the detailing missing. It was too short and airy. The narrative demanded copious amounts of filling and I suppose adding that would make the book more intriguing.

If you wish to read a book with suspense lingering throughout and if short books are your weakness, pick this one.
