I have a mega book hangover. I have fallen in love with the Mehta clan and Shilpa Suraj is to blame. After reading and loving her previous two books, Rescued by Love and The Girl He Left Behind I was waiting and waiting for her next one. All good things come to those who wait and was I rewarded!
Krish is the strict, responsible eldest brother who looks out for his family of two younger brothers and a little sister. He is a workaholic and has no plans of changing himself. Down, falls Max, yes right on him and bang! He has some sense knocked into him, really he does.
Maxine, Max for short is a fiery, beautiful sexy vintage car restorer, a total grease monkey yet confident in her skin. Not afraid to voice her opinion she is a perfect match for the straight-laced, sober, responsible sinfully sexy Krish. The responsible guy who falls for the fun-loving girl while she falls on him 😀
Light years apart from the organised world of Krish Mehta. Her good looks, kickass mechanical skills and sizzling hot lingerie make her totally irresistible. Even when they don’t want to, both feel the pull of the attraction. Two people who feel they are completely wrong for each other but cannot resist since they are Driven by Desire.
The fact that Krish is responsible for his younger siblings Chirag, Adi and Pooja makes him so much more drool-worthy. A man who not only does his duty but one who does it with dedication even at the cost of his own desires. He is a successful businessman and a dedicated family man. Being hot as hell also helps 😉
Max has a job that sets her apart, a doting father and she knows what she wants. She is a confident woman and the chemistry she shares with Krish ensures Driven by Desire is a page-turner. It will also drive you to read the other books by Shilpa, Not to give away the surprise but the relations between the siblings, the easy friendship and bonding make a big impact in the story.
The sweet, impressionable Pooja, the youngest of the lot worms her way into your heart and you want to look out for her just like Max. The cool younger brothers, Chirag and Adi ensure there is never a dull moment. The family, their lives, their passion and camaraderie made me want to read about all of them. Their stories, their desires, their lives.
This book is contemporary fiction and it will make you fall in love, make you smile, shed a tear, cringe at the silly stuff and get hot as hell within its pages. It is a complete romantic fiction set to our times. Driven by Desire is a well-balanced, light, fresh read that is totally in sync with our modern lives.
I recommend this book to all lovers of romance, enjoy it savour it and tell your friends to read it as well. Shilpa makes a strong statement with this book. One can have love, responsibility and happiness even when Driven By Desire. #MustRead
