Review of Lolita: Reviewed by Sundari Venkatraman



Sundari Venkatraman Reviews

This is the first of the “Bad Girl series” by the author. Dying of curiosity, I bought the book the moment it was released on Amazon.

After reading the book, I realized that this was one character that I would have loved to create as an author myself.

Lolita aka Lalita hails from my hometown of Kumbakonam in Tamil Nadu and that was another plus in her favor. The young woman has dreams of becoming the star of Bollywood and goes along with a stranger all the way from Kumbakonam to Mumbai, completely unaware of what awaits her there.

What I liked about Lolita was that she was honest enough to take responsibility for her actions.

The story begins with a bang when an accident occurs during the first meeting between Lolita and Advait.

The relationship between the two of them sparks almost immediately but takes time to build. The story is as real as it could be with both the protagonists sporting varied shades of grey in their characters.

I especially liked the rapport between Advait’s little girl and the diva of the silver screen.
I must say the author has come a very long way since she began with her first book, which was itself 5-star material.

VERDICT: Lolita does win the readers’ hearts

Book Review: Captive by M. V Kasi

The CaptiveThe Captive by M.V. Kasi

My rating: 5 of 5 stars


I was not prepared for this book at all. When Nina gets kidnapped I kept on turning the pages as to what's going to happen next. Ms. Kasi kept me hooked to the pages with her sheer brilliant writing. The plot is intriguing no doubt but the way Ms. Kasi has done her character sketches is a marvel. A play with words. Ms.Kasi is proving to be very good with romance and suspense. I loved the mind game Ms. Kasi played - with her readers as well as with her characters. Every time I tried to figure out where this plot was leading to, the twist came with a bang. Kudos on such a wonderful writing. Looking forward for the next one.

Book Blitz: Lolita By Rubina Ramesh






Print Length: 246 pages
Publisher: Indie published
Publication Date: May 8, 2018
Sold by: Amazon Digital Services LLC
Language: English
Available on Kindle Unlimited
Genre: Romance

Love or Stardom? Was there even a doubt what Lolita wanted?

Though what Lolita wanted and what she got were two different things. When notoriety, that came along with fame, was too much for her to bear, she seeks refuge in the luscious greens of Panchgani. 

But a chance accident changes her life forever… 

Advait Rana was a workaholic and a single dad. And balancing the two roles was not easy. The guilt of neglecting his 10-year-old, motherless child made him decide to become a better father than he was. Taking a leave of absence from his work, he heads towards Panchgani little knowing that fate had some other plans for him. 

A chance accident that changes his life forever... 

Born in simplicity, shunned for her ambition by her family, shamed for her choice in men, Lolita is exactly the kind of woman Advait doesn't want his daughter to be acquainted with. Little does he know that it is this attitude of his which makes him a target for the darling of the silver screen. 

For she was born to win over hearts!!!

Editorial Review #1
From Sundari Venkatraman, Bestselling Author of Tied In Knots and many more:
"With an unapologetically badass heroine and a super-hot dude who loves his little daughter more than anything else in the world, Lolita makes for an unputdownable romance; not to miss some truly hot scenes. "

Note from the Author:
This is a standalone novel and is not carried over to the next part. 

It would be great if you can add this book to your TBR

Book Review: Groomnapped by Sundari Venkatraman

Groomnapped (The Groom Series, #1)


My rating: 5 of 5 stars


An unusual story of a groom who is kidnapped to be married. I liked the premise of the story a lot. As is the signature style of Ms. Venkatraman, its hot and short and the flow of the story is really good. Loved it. It also covers the evils of dowry system in our society and told in a lighted way.

Review of Rising from The Ashes. Review by Dola Basu Singh

Intriguing short read

Loved this unique take on the age-old Purana story. The writer has created a fictional character to justify the grey areas, which I found innovative. The writing is fluid, making this story an engaging, quick read.

Review by Dola Basu Singh


Our books are often discussed. But we authors don't seem to have any right to discuss the reviews. Reviews that mean a life to us for it not only connects us with our readers but also with our own stories. As seen from other's viewpoint. And viewpoint might vary. That's perfectly fine. Each review makes me understand my stories better and helps me grow as a writer. 

Rising from the Ashes was initially written as a prequel to my Knitted Tales 2 but after the influx of short stories, I have decided to make this into a short novella. My stories are fictional but with bits of truth in it. One thing I have noticed. Every mythological story has those grey areas where we don't have any reasoning. My stories start there. From that point where logic does not come in. A series of mythological fiction coming your way. All from my imagination.. or are they?

The first in the series is FALLING IN LOVE WITH CUPID.  Coming Soon.
