Blurb:

I don’t know if I can do a story like this once again or not.

Ajopa Ganguly, a struggling writer, is reeling from the pains of her manuscript having been rejected by all publishers. She knows that making cupcakes and embroidering handkerchiefs is not her true calling. However, she is scared to write anymore and is losing focus.

Aniket Verma, is the professor of economics who was also Ajopa’s tuition teacher once. Despite their twelve years age gap, with time, they forge a special bond of friendship.

Then a misunderstanding!

Now Aniket is back and it feel just like old times. With a challenge of finishing a new manuscript in record time and a promise that he will help her to get it published if she does, he asks her to meet him at the publisher’s office two days later.

Does she write?

Does she go to the publisher’s office?

At what moment does their friendship change?

Do they fall in love?

My Dream Man, a let-me-tell-my-friends and I-need-to-finish-this-now story, is an insightful examination of how forces beyond our control help us make decisions. As Ajopa says, it is all about ‘deep choosing’.

My Review:

I have received a signed review copy from the author through book r3vi3 tours. 


The story is about a struggling writer Ajopa, who stays away from her love of writing for some time fearing of rejections from publishers. Tries her hand on many other things, but couldn't stay long on any of them due to her interest in writing. A girl in her twenties, she meets her old crush Aniket, an Economics professor who is 12 years older than her. How her life changes after his return and will she at last write and publish her book forms the remaining story.

After seeing the cover, I expected it to be an erotic romance. But, It was misleading. Font of the text in the book is small and is not very comfortable for a quick read.

The narration is very simple. I felt as if I am listening to some friend talking to me directly. But, I felt, it is more casual and jumping between different incidents quickly as if we are thinking fast in our mind. The author is successful in explaining the character and the shades of Ajopa very well. The story successfully portrays a budding writer's struggle, her ambitions and inner conflicts. 

Overall, a good contemporary romance and a light read.

My Rating: 3/5
