“Of course you know about the seven stages of love, but have you ever lived them?” Atharva Rathod and Meher Qasim. Lovebirds since adolescence. Bonded by love, separated by circumstances. They part ways only to meet again. But this time, he is on a secret mission… Are they in control of their own destiny, or its their destiny which is making them dance to its tunes? Only time would answer, as Atharva and Meher unwillingly and unknowingly transcend the seven stages of love. A quintessential tale of love and romance marked beautifully by its own rustic old school charm.

Cover :

The cover page always inspires the readers towards grabbing the book and this book has proved it. The book cover is very well designed with a royal blue rose which plays an important role in the story.
Review :

The book is very well knotted with the plot of romance and mystery. The book can be divided into three plots – 1. the school story where the protagonists Atharva and Meher, falls in love with each other but ends up their relationship abruptly blaming the situation. 2. Destiny binds them again after a huge time gap at Munich, Germany, where they both had already started their life in their own way but also their relationship ends up again with some heartbreaks and a mystery. 3. Sparks of old age starts emerging from both when they again meet up in Boston but are they destined to be together now?? And the book moves towards quenching the answer to this question. 

Though the genre is usual romance, the author has served it in a unique way with twists and turns and also hidden mysteries. The word UNNS seems uncommon but the author has explained the reason for the name in the flow of the book. The author recieves a huge applause for beautifully explaining the seven stages of love. The book is an immediate page turner and can also be completed in a single go as we start living the life of those characters. The use of simple and lucid language comforts our reading. Only the starting 20-25 pages were a little bore, as they invoked a thought that the book will be full of the school love story. But the author proved it wrong in the upcoming pages and impressed the readers with his words and narration. The unexpected events and twists hooks us up with the book to find the end of the story. The investigation part of the story is an interesting read as we become a part of the officers investigating it. The little story of Matthias Steiner deeply explains the meaning of love and trust. Every character is explained with utmost care and the author also explained the meaning of true love. One of the best books to be suggested to debut readers.This book also delivers a message that

 1. No matter what, true love cannot be forgotten even at the verge of death. 

2. Blindly trusting a person will prove you blind at the end.

My view on the book :

What if you meet the love of your life again and again even after numerous heartbreaks? Is it the play of destiny or the play of a person behind?

Can you build up trust on a person who cheats you again and again?

Find your answers amidst the well constructed words of this book.
