    • Once Upon A Crush takes us on a journey that is Rayna De’s life. At twenty nine, she is stuck at a stagnant job with the devil himself for a boss, her love life is virtually non-existent and though she is still on the right side of thirty (not for long though) she feels her life is going nowhere – atleast nowhere near where she wants it to be. Then things start to happen. Her friend runs away from home for a break and puts up with her. A new face is added to her list of colleagues and while [...]


    • The cover design of 'Once Upon a Crush' with slightly smudged heart and red-coloured lipstick, sets the mood for the fun, light-hearted pleasure that this book is.Rayna De is the main protagonist of 'Once Upon a Crush'. She's independent, about to turn 30 and has not love life. Her parents are after her to get married.She has a crush on Deven Ahuja - Rayna compares him to Edward Cullen and Mr Darcy. Oh, and he has cheekbones comparable to Benedict Cumberbatch.The stage is thus set for the emotio [...]


    • The writing revolves more around the circumstances and surroundings than the conversations. That's the thing that didn't made my kind interest towards its reading. Though the concept was nice but I wish the rest of the book would've been paced enough and full of things like the last two chapters of this book, so that I would've been able to mark 3 stars at least. Also for an elementary reader like me, the vocabulary used is not tempting but breaking the flow of reading.


    • 2.5 actually. Loved certain bits, the visuals the author creates of the self-criticizing main character are really funny. This will make the feminists happy. An open, uncertain 'queen' ish ending to the book. Feel good and a quick read.I think I am going to follow this author.



    • A very good book if you are looking for a no-nonsense light read with relative events. Must read. (3.5/5)Full Review- wp/p2vbKI-2G

    • Being the first book I read by Kiran Manral I was very impressed by her type of humor. It was a delightful read and I advise it to everybody that wants a good laugh with romance included.


    • Such an average read the romance is not enough and left much to be desired. One can definitely avoid this one unless you're a looking for a break from all the serious reads. Do yourself a favor go read Anuja Chauhan instead of this incomplete book.
