Travel journo, Kairavi Krishna (Kay) has had it with men. After a series of disasters (losers, philanderers, leeches, mama's boys and possessive psychos), she is all too tempted to walk out on the prospect of ever finding love. Accompanied by her best friend and flat-mate Baani, she sets off for Goa, hoping to get away from her miserable love life and vowing to stay clear of the male species.
Goa however, has a host of surprises in store for her. Ricky, her pesky ex-boyfriend, is busy painting the town red with his hot new girlfriend. Now what is poor Kay to do other than overdose on vodka, smoke pot, get an outrageous tattoo and fall off the hotel balcony? She wakes up in the hospital to the tender ministrations of Dr.Vivian D'Mello--young, suave and handsome as hell. Will Kay stick to her guns or will she fall for his ridiculously sexy charms? And what's up with the mixed signals he's giving out?
Done With Men by Shuchi Singh Kalra was a really cute read. The title may sound as if the protagonist is done with men and she is or so she thinks. Fate just has other plans for her. I didn't expect much going in the book and that worked in my favor. I ended up really enjoying Done With Men.
Kairavi or Kay as her friends like to call her is a travel journalist. She has had a series of disasters where men are concerned and it always seems like she falls very easily in love only to be hurt when the relationship comes to an end. Therefore when her best friend Baani suggests they go to Goa to cover an event Kay takes off to get away.
What Kay does not expect is to bump into her ex Ricky or the events which happen thereafter. I really liked Kay. She was adorable in her own way. You could see how she was really hurt in the past and how she wanted to protect herself from heartbreak. When Kay stumbles upon the hot and sexy Dr. Vivian try as she may she can't help but be attracted to him.
I loved how Vivian and Kay's story went. It started off as a love hate relationship and progressed into a sweet one. You never know what life has in store for you and their story just proves it. It was hilarious watching Kay fall for the ridiculously handsome doctor.
I also loved Kay's best friend Baani. She was her support system and always wanted what was best for Kay. Shuchi's writing is really nice and engaging. The novella moves at a nice pace and I kept flipping the pages till I got to the end of it. Done With Men made for a sweet read.
