From the blurb

Love = Sex? Love+Sex=? Love-Sex=??? Sex-Love=????

This is not a book to teach you about love or how to get a beautiful girl to bed, rather it reveals how bad things can get if you don't set your priorities right. It's a story about the most explored life aspect ' Love' 'Sex'.

YUVI, a pleasure seeking boy, falls victim to the same notorious life facet called love. Simran's beauty sweeps him off from his feet and he leaves no stone unturned to seek her special attention.

As he falls in love, he also sleeps around with all the erroneous girls, and when his fate threatens to take his love down, he promises himself to stop all of this and come out of the wreckage … But then, his past deeds come back to his present, and that tears his life apart. What follows is an uneasy course of getting his love back on board.

The story reveals the life of today's youth, their friendships, feelings, priorities, and ineptitude to handle relationships while not forgetting their turmoil between the two critical facets of life: LOVE & SEX.

Love makes the world go round … Or is it Sex? Based on real life experiences and tea time gossips.

My Review

 A big thanks to Aman Jassal and Goodreads for providing me a copy of Rainbow the shades of love. This book is the debut novel of the author. He has given importance to the different color of rainbow and its significance in our life.  
From the book blurb I thought the story must be revolve around love and sex as these two are tinted, but the story is more than that. It also spread the spooky idea that “sometimes it’s too late to realize your true love.”
The cover is cute with a highlighted portion of two hands intertwined with each other and a red ribbon coupled with it.
What I like

The past has a great influence on present and even on future. This book talks about the past that brings dilemma to present and future. I love a paragraph, where he mentioned the significance of colors.

‘My favourite RED symbolizes love, passion, energy. ORANGE symbolizes a lot of energy and wisdom. YELLOW means something bright. GREEN symbolizes harmony, balance, growth, abundance. BLUE is known for divinity, peace and understanding. INDIGO symbolizes wisdom and self-mastery. VIOLET signifies beginning of the energy vibration.’

I quite like the realistic ending; unlike some fairy tale, the author has shown reasonable ending.

What I didn’t like

The story plot could’ve been much better. I wanted to know the character more rather than what men or women would like or dislike!!!  ‘Men wouldn't lie as much to the women in their life, if the women didn't ask so many questions.’

The love story of the main protagonists also seemed not that much connected. The sparkle of chemistry between the protagonists was also missing. I think no girl will be convinced to talk with a complete stranger or even fall for him.

If you are a lovey-dovey-tragic-drama story fan, then I will recommend this book. I will give 2.5 out of 5 stars to the book.
