There, he befriends Ruchita, a happy-go-lucky girl, who introduces him to his ardent fan Shuchi who is fighting a break up too. As two broken hearts meet, they connect like they were made for each other. But just when Sanjeev seems to have gained some control over life, he receives a pack of letters that turns his world upside down.

Will Sanjeev find true love or has destiny planned something else for him?You Are Forever in my Heart is based on real life events and explores the true meaning of love that was once lost and comes back.

Review: When it comes to love stories, I am a very big fan of these books. Although I prefer happy ending but sometimes exceptions are there when books are extremely good to read. Sanjeev’s book is one such example. The narration is from the first person which itself indicates that it is somehow a real-life story which itself make the boo so engrossing to read that you could not stop the book till you completes it. The cover of the book is beautifully designed perfectly match the title and story. I just fell in love with the character Sanjeev and his love for Suchi. The characters of the book are well defined. Ruchita, Suchi, Sanjeev and even Ashima all were perfectly matched in the story. I just love the way Ruchita played the bubbly character which is full of life. Each part of the story keeps you hooked till the end. I just loved the way Sanjeev had planned the one-day trip for Suchi. It was very romantic. I also loved the way Suchi had expressed her feelings for Sanjeev through letters. The climax of the book really will make you cry. I just can’t stop myself from crying. Overall, as a voracious reader, I would recommend everyone to read this book and understand the meaning of soulmate and true love.

Drawback: Some parts of the book was very slow and boring specially Sanjeev’s heartbreak with Ashima. I felt it was extended too long. Apart from that the story and concept everything was worth reading. All the best Sanjeev. Keep writing.

Verdict: ☆☆☆ ½ A well written book with flawless narration. A heart touching tale that will really make you cry in the end. As a reader, I would recommend all the romance fan can read this book.
