Happy ending? Read and See

I read this book in one sitting. I am a avid reader, and tend to read insanely fast. But enough about me, let's talk about the story, shall we?
The title tells me that this is going to be a mushy typical romance. However when I started reading, I got none of that. Cries of Love is about respect for family traditions no matter how old they are, and how well they blend into modern society. In this story, it doesn't bode well for Ash and Bijay.
Bijay is forced into an arranged marriage as he is in love with an entirely different woman. He doesn't defy his parents publicly, and goes on with the arranged marriage. However he is is still in love with another woman, and basically builds his life around the woman he loves and not the one he is married to.
All hell breaks lose when he learns that his wife has been stepping out on him. How does he know? She is pregnant, and he has not slept with her at all.
His wife, Renu, is young and really wants her husband to love her, but he doesn't. She eventually learns that he never wanted to marry her in the first place, and as soon as the opportunity arises, she sleeps with another man.
Renu is not a vindictive woman, but the other man really seems to love an care for her, so she does what her heart says to do.
This is a story about the classes, old family traditions, and culture. It was refreshing to read a book that was no where near cliche, and outside the western way of seeing relationships. I loved Ash's sadness, and Renu's spunk. I enjoyed Bijay's jealousy, and David's anger.
In the end I loved that Bijay's parents saw the error of their ways.
Good story, just wish it was a bit longer. Thank you for the great read.

I really enjoyed reading this book. The author has lots to choose from, so I chose this one. Darren “Dude” Smith is a very complicated character who knows what he wants, but just doesn’t know how to go about getting it. Her name is Kay. Throughout this book, you can tell that Kay and Darren are in love, but it is just Darren’s alter ego, Dude, that is constantly getting In the way.
I liked the fact that the main character was a man. Darren is wealthy, and very selfish. You like him one minute and the next you want to wring his neck. I liked that. I never knew what was going to happen next. The other supporting characters could be fleshed out a little more, but that is my own opinion. Kay was cool, but she had her own issues at some points, and I wanted to slap her too.
The punctuation and grammar was very good, though there are some places were the POV was confusing, and there was a missed period or two. But over all a very good read.
