Blurb:

There will be times when you feel you have the best relationship, ever There will be times when it will be the worst that has happened to you There will be times when you know you are getting into something terrible; something that will not stop till it destroys you And yet . . . You will be pulled into it so inextricably, unstoppably . . . Dhruv knew Anuradha was his true love. So, despite being married with kids, he still went ahead with their affair. He hid it from his wife and his colleagues. He told lies so he could be with her-it was that amazing! But he couldn’t save himself from the dark secret she was keeping. It pulled him into a vortex of danger so deep that he lost all he had. It happened to him and if you think it can’t happen to you-think again.

Review:

The prologue, built with a good amount of suspense was written well, leaving the reader pondering over the numerous unanswered questions.The cover is intriguing and will definitely grab some eyeballs. The story is narrated in the first person POV’s of the protagonists – Dhruv, Sid and Anuradha.

The one thing on which, I would like to commend the author is that he has brought out a relatively lesser known dark side of love, in the story. Love, whilst being the most beautiful thing in the universe, can even bring you at crossroads. Even though there are no likeable/relatable characters, their unusual personalities will manage to charm you.

The plot takes an interesting turn when a page from Anuradha’s troubled past surfaces again, affecting the couple’s life severely. ย Meanwhile, things are not good at Dhruv’s home either as his wife finds something amiss. Memories of her dead ex-boyfriend, Sid, haunts her and people who were after Sid for money, are now chasing her.

The language structure is simple and easy to comprehend.The meticulous descriptions of the locations were really vivid. It would have been better if some more twists and turns were introduced in the plot. The ending was predictable and rather a disappointing one.

This book is not like the other stories centred on adultery, where the lovers unite in the end. The plot is comparatively different than the other novels in the lot.

‘You Never Know’ is a good fast paced one time read. Go, for it if, you are looking for something new to read in the romance genre.
