She is bold, beautiful and determined not to fall in love, until her dream comes true. Aaryan does every possible way to impress Aarushi and promises her that unless she expresses her feelings, he won't say, "I Love You." Everything was going smooth, until that unfortunate night when Aarushi decides to express her love to Aaryan. That night, Aarushi was brutally raped. Was he Aaryan? Why did he do this to the girl whom he loved madly? Discover the purest love story and walk through the journey of Aaryan and Aarushi.

A book that will touch your hearts. 
A book that will make you believe in love. 
A book that will make you fall in love. 
A book which will leave you teary eyed. 
... This is 'The Cost of Love' for you!! 

I started reading this book with a thought in the mind that it will be the usual tale of romance. Few pages down and I realised that this book isn't the usual one. The book is packed with emotions and love. Once you start reading this book, you will not be able to put it down. This book is surely a treat for romance lovers. 

The story starts with the fun talks and gains seriousness somewhere during the fourth chapter. The plot is crisp and short. There have been many books written deriving inspiration from Nirbhaya incident. And trust me, each book is unique in its own way. This book too tells you a great tale of love. There are not many characters. But the ones which are there are strong enough to keep the story intact and engaging. Both the protagonists depict strong character. You will be overwhelmed with their love bond. You will ache to have a lover like Aaryan and Aarushi and a friend like Nikhil. The author has conveyed the feelings of the protagonists beautifully. There are some boring patches in the initial chapters having many cheesy lines and PDA. But they are nullified with the last few chapters. The incidents follow a flashback sequence which makes you grow an interest in the story. Reading is easy as the author has narrated the transition between the present and the past well. The language is lucid and simple. The simplicity in this story, the simplicity of the characters steal your heart. You will feel like you have known the characters since ages. The author has surprised me with the climax. It was totally unexpected. 

The Cost of Love is an love story that will take you on a rollercoaster ride of emotions. 

I rate- 
Cover- 3/5 
Characters- 4/5 
Story- 4/5 

My overall rating for The Cost of Love is 4/5 stars.

Buy this emotional read on Amazon.
