Review : 

Messed up! All for love is a romantic thriller book spiced up with the emotions of friendship, mysteries, revenge, heartbreak etc. Though the book seems a regular romantic read at the start, the third part of the book hooks us with the story with the amazing thriller plot. The twists and turns of the story, almost left me with an unexpected shock and I was left with an Oh My God! expression. The elegant words and the first person narration helps the readers to maintain coherence with the fast paced story along with the short humors. The beautiful song lyrics refreshes us for a while. The book was very well plotted with engaging storyline and also leaves us with a suspense at the end to wait for the next book of the series. The title and the cover can make anyone grab this book and also they matches very well with the plot of the book. The blurb also creates enough hype about the book.

Waiting for the next book in the series.

Verdict :

This book is highly recommended for romance lovers since the book is beautified with a mystery plot.
