Gobsmacked is Book 2 in The Groom Series. This story will actually Gobsmack you. It has all the elements I love. Spirited Female Protagonist, a Supportive Partner, Following one's Dreams, good mushy love & love scenes ;), obstacles, some twists and turns. This story will actually Gobsmack you. It features a spirited female protagonist, Radhika who is the true 21st century Woman. She did not give excuses or retaliate but picked herself up and made her dream come true. No mopping around and waiting for her Mr. Perfect to come rescue her. Mr. Perfect or Amit Sharma, on the other hand did not impress me much. First half I wanted to knock him out with a bat. How can you not see what's happening right under your nose? Wait for 22 months? I can throw at him all the bad words I know. Second half he did some corrective measures so I will let him off. The characters are few but all played their part well. Shanti or Devil in law was perfect & real. I also wanted to shake up the Father in law. How retired can you be? Like father like son? Sister of Radhika was perfect & so was her husband. I wanted Radhika's Parents to do something but again it's a 21st century novel where Parents let the children live their lives. I'm getting all emotional because I could see all these characters in front of me. What is a romance novel without love scenes, right? This one is advanced level. Go figure : D Sundari, my husband is going to be cross with you soon. He needs his sleep. My late night reading your books disturbs him ;) The language is good & simple. I wanted the story to go faster but the flow is consistent. Thumps up for adding a social cause message to the story, Sundari. Nicely & briefly described how Radhika walked the talk & made her vision into a reality. I loved how you showed her enriching & upgrading herself step by step & not stopping. I wanted to lectures her for bearing the abuse for almost 2 years. But she had her reasons. Also this can be seen in real life too. I wish ladies do take this story as an example & make their own lives happy. Build your tribe. Women can help more Women become stronger & create wonders.

    Without wanting to repeat the title of Sundari Venkatraman's latest work I must say that at the end of the book I was "gobsmacked". I admire Sundari for picking up a theme that has been written about very often and still comes out with a totally different treatment of the same. Such a common theme like mothers-in-law wanting the very best for their sons and, unwillingly, almost destroying their happiness, has been dealt with a magic wand by Sundari Venkatraman making the book unputdownable.

    A story of a married woman who belongs to a small town. And her mother-in-law has problems accepting her. Though this is the second book of the series, it can be read as a standalone, but as the characters from the previous book are mentioned, this book will be enjoyed more if we know the circumstances of Amit and Radhika meeting for the first time. The characters are realistic. I loved Radhika’s determination and strength. I loved Amit’s father, Janardhan.

    My Take: Radhika and Amit fall in love in a very short frame of time. Amit is city bred and from an affluent family. Radhika is from a poor family but with dreams in her eyes. She dreams of doing something for her village and women empowerment. The love birds decide to get married and with lot of dreams and aspirations in her heart, Radhika enters her in-laws house. Her father in law is rational and easy going he likes Radhika and accepts her easily.

Radhika is from a poor family but with dreams in her eyes. She dreams of doing something for her village and women empowerment. The love birds decide to get married and with lot of dreams and aspirations in her heart, Radhika enters her in-laws house. Her father in law is rational and easy going he likes Radhika and accepts her easily. But the mother in law is evil and keeps planning and plotting against Radhika and keeps putting her down. Amit marries Radhika, and dreams of a happily ever after but never imagines or even realizes what Radhika goes through when leaves for work. His mother plays a pure double game. The love and chemistry between them is cracking. Frustrated with her mother in laws taunting and bad treatment one day Radhika leaves her home and Amit never gets to know the real reason thanks to his mom who manipulates the situation to her advantage. The love birds stay separate for 22 months holding on to their ego and never confront or even communicate with each other. But suddenly something happens that opens the Pandora’s box and all tumble out. What happens, how and who plays a role in bringing the love birds together???? Read the book to find out. A very filmy style story with all the twists and turns. I loved the headstrong characters. The story is actually something that most Indian households and house wives go through, The best part is the author gives a strong message to women to stand up, chase their dreams and never give up. Smooth narration, simple and limited characters and well etched roles makes this a breezy read. 5 🌟 🌟 🌟 🌟 🌟
