ARC REVIEW : Done With Men by Shuchi Singh Kalra


Travel journo, Kairavi Krishna (Kay) has had it with men. After a series of disasters (losers, philanderers, leeches, mama's boys and possessive psychos), she is all too tempted to walk out on the prospect of ever finding love. Accompanied by her best friend and flat-mate Baani, she sets off for Goa, hoping to get away from her miserable love life and vowing to stay clear of the male species. 

Goa however, has a host of surprises in store for her. Ricky, her pesky ex-boyfriend, is busy painting the town red with his hot new girlfriend. Now what is poor Kay to do other than overdose on vodka, smoke pot, get an outrageous tattoo and fall off the hotel balcony? She wakes up in the hospital to the tender ministrations of Dr.Vivian D'Mello--young, suave and handsome as hell. Will Kay stick to her guns or will she fall for his ridiculously sexy charms? And what's up with the mixed signals he's giving out?


Done With Men was a fun read. I having been to Goa for the Sunburn fest only last Dec I especially enjoyed reading about it as I could relate.
The main story could have been a bit more better if certain sections of the story would have been extended and made the book longer. A bit more drama was needed. And lots of romance never hurts. Other than that the chemistry between the main couple could be improved and the best friends were great. 
Other than that it was fun one time read.
