The book starts with a catchy first chapter making you curious on what happened to protagonist. Then it takes you 15 days back and a place in Rajasthan called Phalaudi which is a semi rural area. Then coming back to the present. Going to future in Ibiza and ending in Phalaudi.
The book is a medium paced book with every character developed beautifully and having their own traits. Descriptions in the book are very intricate with you being able to visualise the authors perspective.
Authors command over the language is just awesome. Emotions and Feelings of every character is depicted beautifully which is the main USP of the book. I won't be surprised if someday this book is turned into a movie. Ending of the book is kept open ended leaving the readers to their imagination or maybe paving a way for a sequel.
A beautifully woven story.

Aspiring deejay NJ – Anjana – lives in Mumbai with her best friend Harsh and his boyfriend Sam. When Harsh has to go to Phalodi, his hometown in Rajasthan, for his sister’s wedding, he convinces NJ to tag along, posing as his girlfriend to avoid being set up with any potential brides. At the wedding, though, she meets Rudra, Harsh’s elder brother, and the two are powerfully attracted to each other. One thing leads to another and they kiss, only to break away bitterly. But NJ will not let Harsh’s secret out.Wedding, vows, secrets, lies – of course, things get complicated. When Rudra visits Mumbai soon after, he finds that NJ is missing and no one knows where she is. Where could she have gone? Why are there rumors that she is dead? Will Rudra move on from the guilt and sadness that envelop him, or will he uncover the truth behind the mysterious disappearance?A big fat desi romance for those who stir a little darkness into their love potions.
Anjana, a.k.a, NJ, is a deejay artist, who lives with her best gay friend, Harsh and his boyfriend, Sam in Mumbai. Harsh and NJ are the best of buddies, they found each other, they support each other and they love and respect one another, and not to mention, since Harsh saved NJ when she was running low on money and seeing an end to her aspiring career, NJ would do anything for Harsh, even if it means lying to the whole world as well as to Harsh's family about his sexuality. So when Harsh's baby sis, Kavya gets married at their hometown in Rajasthan, Harsh asks NJ to act as his girlfriend, so that his family does not get a hint about his sexual identity and NJ accepts his offer immediately. But as they arrive at their hometown, NJ instantly falls head-over-heels in love at first sight with Harsh's elder brother, Rudra, a brooding and heart-broken man with a equally painful past. And surprisingly, Rudra too feels the same for her, but since NJ is his brother's girlfriend, he could make any move, but a kiss between them, fills Rudra's mind with doubts about Anjana's true intentions. And when Rudra visits his brother Harsh's apartment at Mumbai, he finds out that NJ is missing. Can he ever find his true lady love? Will NJ ever let out the secret about Harsh's sexuality, even if it means sacrificing the love of her life?
A mushy, cliched and swooning love story about true love not only between lovers, but also between two friends, a brother and a sister and two brothers. The author has poured out all her best emotions while penning this beautifully depicted love story with many layers. The story explores so many boundaries about love in our country set against the backdrop of Mumbai and mainly Rajasthan. A fascinatingly concocted contemporary romance that is deep with passion and raw emotions which is bound to make the readers move deeply and feel with their hearts and souls. Also not to mention, the book's cover design is so apt with the title as well as with the story line, it has a subtle underlying meaning with the title of the novel.
The author's writing style is extremely eloquent and is laced evocatively that will let the readers contemplate the story line easily. The narrative is equally engaging, sensitive and realistic to the very core, and often sentimental, but that emotional roller coaster ride is very much present in this book, that makes it one hell of a stirring love story. The pacing is really fast, even though the author has delved enough details about the plot as well as about her characters, yet there is a slight mystery, that will keep the readers on their edges till the very end. Also not to mention, each and every scene from this book, especially, the romantic ones are penned with enough passion to make the readers feel that emotion vividly. While reading this book, I could feel the instant sparks flying between NJ and Rudra strikingly and made me feel the rush of falling in love.
The characters are well etched out and are well developed, complete with their flaws and strengths that give a realistic demeanor. The main character, Anjana, is a sweet and honest young woman, who knows what she wants in her life, be it her career or her emotional needs, she is headstrong yet traditional enough to know about her values. And I bet small town girls can easily relate to her and her struggles in a big city. The next primary character, Rudra, is a ruminating, thoughtful and handsome man with a broken heart, whose back story is explored beautifully and the readers will feel like they know him by the back of their hands. Rudra and Anjana's struggle with love and trust is depicted with sensitivity and thoughtfulness, thereby making it look believable in the yes of the readers.
In a nutshell, this is an absorbing and extremely entertaining love story filled with friendship drama, sexuality, self-identity, regrets, trust issues with a dash of mystery.
And then there’s Rudra, Harsh’s elder brother. The man of every girl’s dreams, Rudra is a heartbroken hunk who has trust issues and an exceptionally high ego.
NJ meets Rudra and in immediately greeted with heart flutters. Rudra feels the same but realizes that it’s a sin to fantasize about his beloved brother’s girlfriend. There’s another problem. Rudra thinks NJ is a gold-digger and makes it his mission to expose her.
However, destiny has other plans. Rudra and NJ end up falling for each other, but they part ways again through a series of very unfortunate events.
A few days later, NJ goes missing and no one knows where to find her.
True Liars is about finding love and trusting the one you love. A series of lies leading to a lot of heartbreaks. Nj has her issues but she has been trying so hard to pull herself together. Rudra is broken beyond measure and the only place he finds solace is when he is beside NJ. But love is never going to be enough. is it?
A Romantic tale with a hint of thriller, the plot was great. The writing gets a little dull at places because too many words and too many chapters have been dedicated to describing the same feelings over and over again. But that didn’t slow me down. I was on a hunt for a happily ever after. I also like the way the author penned down the emotional segments of the book.
The romance is mushy and gets clingy sometimes. There’s a lot of fantasizing and kissing. Doesn’t get creepy though (that definition might differ from person to person).
