My review:

A Scandalous Proposition by M. M. George is an irresistible page-turner!

Scandalous happen all around us; be it financial or romantic but sometimes it’s a combo of the two. A romance driven by money! NO, it is not about a small town gal fishing for a wealthy guy in a metro city and also, it’s not about a well-off gal eying the rich and only marriageable hunk left in town. This time, it is the other way round. It is about a guy – Ranbir Dewan falling for love (or may be lady), who believes that everything comes with a price tag. This account comes as a hard blow on his head to learn that there is something (some emotions) that are priceless and remain devoid of price tag, forever!

Nevertheless, he is not an easy guy who could take the lesson so easily. Why? This is because; he is ‘THE DEWAN from the Dewan’s clan). He is rude, adamant, stubborn, loud mouthed and bossy (Of Course and why not?). He is amongst the successful, wealthy and influential who are yet single in the town but is bestowed with an irresistible charm as well. Nevertheless, such a tough man demands an equally infective and non-porous woman; thus, the author has penned a morally strong, self-made and high-valued girl – Mira Talwar, who is indifferent to price tags and understand the real value of money and real cost of life. Like name, like her traits, she is a double edged sword! If she is as sharp as a steel edge, she is fiercely loveable as well. She is attracted to him but she is not an easy prey.

They do bump into each other but separate to meet again as he has a proposition for her! A Scandal seeds in? Woosh! What scandal? How do they bump into each other? Why do they part ways? Once done, why do they come together? Does it comes with a happy ending or gets lost in headlines highlighting the happening scandal of the town? Read on to learn more about the characters, their relations and unleash their real-self.

The author has provided with a fresh perspective to the small town gal – metro city guy relationship with a modern tinge. She has successfully managed to focus how today’s generation who aims high to modernity is still rooted deep to culture, our Indian culture and respects it whole kindheartedly. She has very smoothly incorporated the familial aspect by discussing how families get affected while the scandal takes shape  outside the house’s doors. Flow with the spring of love meandering through the gates of posh colonies from metro of Delhi to the small gullies of small town – Meerut.

You will definitely relish her simplistic narration style and attention to details in scripting the daily chores of a joint Indian family, a family loving food, second to none. Remember, what our elders taught us – The path to a man’s heart is through his stomach! What happens if you are left with nothing but to have a head-collision with him before reaching out to his stomach and a wagering tongue???

This novella comes from Indireads as a recommended read for the light heart, fast running, one-go romantic readers with high values and desiring love in their lives.
