When she lands a job at a prestigious media house, she’s glad to have something to take her mind off her heartbreak. What she doesn’t expect is to be landed on a business trip with a famously fiery reporter Rajesh Lagheri. He’s travelling to a business conference for a story and doesn’t seem impressed by her involvement. But as soon as they’re out of the office, things change and it becomes clear that there is more to Rajesh’s trip than meets the eye. As Prisha is drawn into the story he’s trying to hide from their editor, their hunt for the story grows more intense and she finds herself growing closer to Rajesh. As their chemistry threatens to overwhelm them and Prisha is pulled deeper into the Seductive Affair, she must decide what matters most to her matters of the head or of the heart.

My Take

Starting from the cover and title is enchanting. I expected it to be a dark romance thriller but it’s a simple love story based on career and love. The title is misleading there is no seduction in the plot.

The book is a bag of emotions, love, hate, relationship, passion, separation, trust, bond, joy, happiness, family, relationships, life, sadness, betrayal and many more.

This is the story about main protagonist Prisha Khatri. Prisha getting ready for the first day of her dream job and remembering her past where her ex-fiance Aditya ditched her because she wanted to work and he wanted a wife who will sit at home, cook, raise children and take care of them. Breakup with her ex-fiance due to his insecurity, she is all set to enter corporate world, her dream job. She joins The Chronicles as in one of the leading newspapers of the country. She is attracted to Rajesh a senior reporter. Rajesh and Prisha travels for a businesses  conference in Mumbai where they find themselves getting close to each other while covering a story for their article. To find out more read the book.

Language of the book is lucid and written in a simple way to comprehend for any kind of reader. I have read the author’s previous work i have much expectation from this book too but i’m disappointed this time. Plot becomes predictable sometimes. The story is fast paced. Narration was simple and okey. The characters are good but could not able to connect with them. A few typographical errors here and there need to be rectified. If the edit was done properly, the story would have sounded much much better.

Overall Ratings 2/5 Stars

About the Author

Rishabh Puri.jpg

Rishabh Puri was born in India and raised in Nigeria. He attended an Indian school, before moving to a British school. He had a degree in business administration from the United Kingdom through distance learning from Middlesex University. He also has a master’s degree in business administration (International Trade) from UK via distance learning from London Business School, as well. Frankly, getting into business was never on the agenda. He did not have an engineering background, but the influence of his father made him explore a different side, which he wasn’t aware of. And he hasn’t looked back ever since.

 

He is a highly accomplished entrepreneur of Indian origin with his spurring business set ups in Nigeria, Dubai, UAE, and China. He is the proprietor of HSR Entertainment and the producer of web series Meri Kahani – Season 2. He got into his family business at the age of 18 and since then he has been a backbone of his esteemed enterprises. However, his childhood was not as fancy because he was diagnosed with life-threatening heart disease at the age of 1. He often craved for a ‘Normal Life’ that everyone else was able to enjoy. His life was mostly limited to talking to the Doctors and visiting hospitals for several major surgeries and regular checkups. Despite being so near to death every time he was on the surgery table, he never restricted himself from hoping to live a full life, a life comprised of happiest moments complimented with a lot of humor.
Reading and writing have always been a hobby for him and many years ago he wrote his first manuscript without ever imagining that it’ll get published ‘someday’. In 2017, his maiden book showcased at the bookstores with a cover reflecting the title, “Inside the Heart of Hope” which was well appreciated by the readers out there. He became an author quite officially post his novel namely ‘Flying Without Wings’. His third novel is out named ‘Seductive Affairs’. However, he claims to be a hobbyist writer using his free time to write and becoming a storyteller with his pen and paper. His writings are mostly centered on Hope, Love, Life; almost what our mankind needs in the recent times.

Rishabh is not just a busy businessman who spares time for his most cherished skills for penning down fiction, but he is also an avid traveler, a super car enthusiast, a Romantic chef over the weekend, a natural drawer, ‘a hookah + green tea’ combination lover, and an active volunteer for supporting the needy strata of our society.
Rishabh makes his home in Lagos, Nigeria and Dubai, U.A.E where he stays for most of the year with his family;He keeps coming back to India and stays in Chandigarh, his birthplace, which is so close to his faulty heart for obvious reasons.He believes that determination can take one to great heights in business and personal life. A man of many talents – a writer, poet and artist – he believes that one always has a choice to turn any situation into victory.
Driven by curiosity and the hunger to learn, he loves to meet new people and explore the world. He has always been fascinated by the power of the mind. He is quite a comic himself and enjoys the occasional dose of sitcoms and movies.

    I have to say that authors and editors or publishers these days are not as careful with books as they should be. I get mad when I read stuff that’s full of error.

    I’d say the rather deceptive of the author perhaps it was marketing. I would think with that cover and title it would be much more tantalizing.

  10. I suppose the title does lead to a dark romantic thriller. After reading your review, however, this sounds like a book that I would enjoy, despite that misleading title. Sorry it wasn’t what you expected 😦
