Could not find a catch in the story. Was dragging with a repetitive narrative. Would be better if the author comes to the point directly. Also lacks descriptions.

As I flipped the pages, I could sense much effort on the part of the author...the nuances have been captured quite well, just as a young couple enters marital life. I wish there were more conversations, though. That would have made it more engaging and intense. Also the grammatical errors in a few places were irritating. I wonder what happens next...all the best, Deepak!

Thank you for your kind review. I absolutely LOVE your book. I do hope it gets published. I would love to read all of it. I would make my son read it as well. All the very best.

I hope the third chapter didn't hold anything interesting since I just skipped it. I apologize for doing so, since you have put a lot of hard work into this manuscript - but I just couldn't take it anymore.

I picked this up seeing the cover page...oh i loved it...I thought there would be something related to 50 shades of grey...but there was nothing...also there is too much description and very less dialogues...I wish to read more of dialogues...Inspite of all this it is an interesting read and I would like to read further but maybe I would want to read a couple of chapters more to decide whether it should be published or no...Wanted to give 3 stars but because of the grammatical errors giving 2...All the best!!

Thoroughly boring. Filled with too long paragraphs and grammatical errors.
I expected better content from someone who's being so rude while reviewing other books.
Nothing is worth appreciating - neither the plot nor the writing.

THE MANUSCRIPT COULD BE PUBLISHED... DIFFICULT TO GAUGE WHERE THE STORY IS LEADING. THE THREE CHAPTERS ARE LOADED WITH DOUBTS, MUSINGS AND FRETTING OF THE LEAD CHARACTERS. SOME TENSION AND DRAMA COULD HAVE BEEN BEEN CREATED IN THE THIRD CHAPTER TO MAKE THE READER ANXIOUS AS TO HOW THE EVENTS WILL UNFOLD. IT'S JUST GREY AND MORE GREY WITH NO HINT OF A SILVER LINING.

Had no intention of reading a book whose title itself is ‘inspired’ from a popular series (50 Shades of Grey). However, the author messaged me requesting me to read it. Well, I must say, I regret reading this one! No offence author, I’m sure this kind of storyline and genre has its dedicated followers, but I’m not one of them! For me, the story was mundane and boring. I’d rather read a detective story than read about boring married couples! Good luck nonetheless.... :-)

Susheel Narain Kak

A fast flow of words makes quick and easy reading. The narrator is shown as a harrowed and harried character ( which one can easily envision a Jim Carey enacting) who has got into a fast moving car with the accelerator jammed and steering wheel broken, setting things up for clearly what is going to be one hell of a risky and unpredictable ride. How much are we really in control over our lives? This theme should find resonance with a large number of young people who today have to find their balance, direction and purpose in a pressure cooker environment which only supports stereotypes.

OMG this one D-R-A-G-S. Do we really need a blow-by-blow of someone's sad love life? Nope. Even duller than real life. Forget 50 Shades of Grey - this one's as sexy as grey walls!

Readable style. Interesting perspective on the mundanity of relationships amongst the millennials - a generation that came into the workplace around the financial crisis and have to deal with insecure work lives.
