Book Review: Second Chance At Love by Ruchita Misra

I am sucker for books so for me there is nothing better than receiving a nice read as a present. The good thing is people around me realise that so for my first festival after my wedding i.e. Lohri I received a copy of Ruchita Misra’s third book– Second Chance At Live. I have read and reviewed the first two books written by her and my experience was pretty good so I was definitely looking forward to reading this one.


Second Chance At Love is the story of Bindiya Saran and Samar Chauhan. Bindiya is a beautiful, cheerful, happy-go-lucky girl with a bit of a troubled past. Samar Chauhan or as people like to call him Satan Chauhan is the mysterious man Bindiya meets when she starts working on a prestigious project for one of India’s largest conglomerates. Nothing and no one seem to be able to please Samar and turns out he has an even more troubled past than Bindiya. As luck would have it, the two people who could not be any more different from each other have to work on the project together.

I do like romantic novels but absolutely hate when authors turn it into a mills and boons affair. Second chance at love however gives you a love story that you can believe in and relate to. Character development is the highlight of the book and you end up rembering realise that you the characters remind tou about someone in your life. Every character has been given a story and an appropriate space in the book so you know what happened to them in the end.

The pace of the story is pretty decent and even though it becomes a little slow during a couple of chapters, most pages keep you from putting the book down. The story itself is a beautiful combination of emotions you can identify with. The book is simple, straightforward and leaves you with a happy feeling as the it ends. I think we all crave for a happy ending when it comes to love but do not believe we will  get one so we get on with our lives but the story teaches us that our happy ending might come to us even when we feel the time has passed. It portrays all the necessary emotions minus the melodrama which makes it a very refreshing read for someone who is tired of chicklits full of stories that sound the same.

I have to say the author has come a long way from her first book in every aspect. I was not to excited to read her second book after I read her first but that turned out to be better and Second Chance At Love definitely turned out to be a big surprise for me. I would totally recommend you to pick a copy when you visit the book store the next time and I am quite sure you will not regret investing your time in reading this one.
