The cover is good. It could be more attractive. But it is enough to understand the story inside the book must be a love story after observing the cover. In cover, there is an open book on the sand, there are one man and one woman holding each other’s hands together and they are looking at each other. The cover defines itself a romantic one.



The title seems to incomplete one. It defines there is something after when love happens. The title speaks too it’s a love story. Romance lovable book readers can get interest after analysing the title. It says an incomplete story. After reading the title and analysing it one cannot stay without reading the whole story.



It defines it is a tale of shattered dreams and redemption, of fear and fortitude. It’s short but enough to understand the fact. The blurb portion has been written and edited well. After reading the blurb portion one can guess what is going to be happened inside the book. Moreover it is nicely inner descriptive blurb that I have liked very much.



This is a love story revolving around two childhood friends, Nish and G. The story depicts the journey of a man from a modest background who is hopelessly in love and how he fights the challenges thrown to him by life. It is a story based on love, dreams and hopes. It is an inspiring story that seems to be very real. The plot is good enough I have enjoyed while reading it. It is a page turner you cannot put down the book down once you have started reading it. Author’s efforts are appreciable but the story could have been written in a better manner.



All characters are characterized well but it could have been better. Nish, the main protagonist falls in love with his classmate, G. but G gets married to someone else. His love interest for G, is suppressed with social obligations and responsibilities of maintaining her family dignity. After breaking up with G the situation is totally changed for Nish. But he does not give up believing in God that gives him a power to tackle with all his obstacles.



The story could have been narrated well. As a result, the story turns out to become extremely mediocre and lacks overall reader’s interest. But the book has been edited well. However, this book provides us a message True Love Never Dies. This book has been written with the help of simple words. The story is descriptive one.


Overall ratings: 3.5/5

True love never dies. It is redefined every time you feel it. When Nish falls in love, little does he know the impact it is going to have on his life. Hailing from conservative backgrounds, love is nothing less than war with the world for the lover and his beloved. Albeit limited communication, they still dare to dream of a life together. But with the pressure of attaining stability in life, he finds it impossible to chase his dreams endlessly. An unassuming man from a modest background, he fights helplessness and challenges thrown at him by life, only to learn precious life lessons. His faith in God gives him the strength to move on and find his calling in writing and poetry. When Love Happens… is a tale of shattered dreams and redemption, of fear and fortitude and above all, of the indomitable human will.
