Book Review:
Rescued by Love is Shilpa Suraj's second book after The Girl He Left Behind. I had thoroughly enjoyed reading Shilpa's first book  and can say the same for this one. 

The cover is miles better than the cover of the first book. It is more catchy and attractive. The blurb is intriguing and creates an instant interest in the book.

The story looks predictable like the many other I-am-in-love-with-my-rescuer types but Shilpa gives the story her personal flavor and makes it a completely new experience for the readers. The story has more depth and much more to it than just romance. The dialogues are well crafted and the plot expertly conceived and executed.

The characters make you forget that they are not real. I loved Naina with her strength of character and her determination. She has been oppressed and ignored at home and always made to feel unloved by her parents but still she has not given up her freedom to gain their acceptance. She knows what she wants in life and is ready to fight for it. Lt. Col Arjun Rathore made my heart flutter with his serious and brooding personality. His strength and bravery and his kindness towards Naina endeared him to me. His sense of responsibility and his word of honor means everything to him and when these very ideals test his happiness, it is very interesting to see how he copes with it. The romance between these two is quiet, slow and heartfelt. There dilemmas, difficulties and the challenges they face will make their love even more strong and I am sure touch other readers' hearts too just like it did mine.

The other characters like the rescue team made me visualize the problems and dangers these brave men face while protecting their country from enemies. Naina's parents specially her father made me so angry with his ancient mindset and his arrogance. Her mother is a weak woman without a backbone who follows her husband even when he is wrong and has accepted her unhappy state of life, blaming her daughter for it which was entirely stupid and made me feel sorry for Naina. Arjun's family is a loving lot and worlds apart from the bitter and unhappy family of Naina. All the characters are so beautifully portrayed that the stay with you even after you have read the book.

Shilpa has grown as a writer which shows in her writing. The dialogues are more crisp, the characters have more depth and the story narration more engaging.

All in all, Rescued by Love is a must read book that will no doubt keep you at the edge of your seat swiftly turning pages till the very end. Strongly recommended to everyone, enjoy this sweet romance that touches the heart and leaves the reader with a smile on his face. Super shiny 5 stars to Rescued by Love and I look forward to reading more from Shilpa in the future.

I received the book from the author and I am very thankful to her. The above review is my honest and unbiased opinion and in no way influenced.
