Raj is a brilliant Indian student studying at IIT who strategically applies for an internship in Switzerland to fulfil his dreams of travelling and exploring what the world has to offer. During this time, he meets Sofia, a German student who Raj instantly falls in love with. Their chemistry was visible throughout and it was both adorable and hot, the manner in which the two got together in a slow burn but imperative manner.
The Promised We Made started as a really cute love story that brought back so many memories of my own teenage years spent getting to know people of different cultures, travelling to different cities, learning a few language, falling in love and just making the most of the moment by having a good time. Towards the end, however, the story took a very sharp turn that was hard to swallow and left me feeling devastated.
A book that made me smile for the most part because of how relatable everything was for me, The Promises We Made is very well written. A good writing style coupled with really good storytelling and characters that are nicely developed, this book was quick, cute and sad read that I actually enjoyed quite a bit.
