This Story Is Flirty

Publisher's Summary

Getting attracted to a close friend of the opposite sex is very common these days. This often leaves us in a dilemma of how we want to define this relationship and take it forward. Would you want to stay in the friend zone or take the plunge and end up being more than just 'friends'? Never Kiss your Best Friend elaborates on this confusion lying within many youthful hearts and will rekindle your memory of all the crazy and stupid things that you have done in your teenage years.

This comes as good news for all those contemporary young readers who just were left wanting for more after the author's last release, Just Friends. Following the same tone, this book delivers much more than desired. The writer takes forward the story of Tania and Sumer, how they met and the intricacies of the craziness which follows on their emotional journey; a journey which sees their infatuation grow into something treading towards an unexpected climax.

Never Kiss your Best Friend is a sequel to his earlier novel Just Friends, which narrates what happens when Tania Brar, a headstrong and impulsive girl reunites with her best friend, Sumer Singh Dhillon, after a gap of five years. The narration of these multiple incidents is gripping and interesting. The book redefines the rules of friendship between two best friends. Written in an easy to understand and friendly tone, you will be able to relate with the characters in the book if you've ever experienced a close friendship. It lays out a long list of crazy things like dancing with her in your boxers, crying on his shoulder when you break up, boring her with football talk at 3 a.m. and a lot more. The book also posts a staggering question. What happens when it doesn't work out between you and your best friend? Will you lose out on this friendship as well?

Excellent Everything!

The writing, the story, the characters, the settings and scenes, the narrator...all of it excellent! The only disappointing part was that I had to wade through ALL the Audible Escape titles that show up in the app just to find this gem! Seriously, the algorithm for Audible Escape is entirely too white leaning and I know there are far more diverse stories in the Audible catalogue when a non-white race specific search is done (sucks to even have to admit that that’s the only way to find stories by a more diverse set of authors and backgrounds). That noted, this title is as good as anything written by Helena Hunting, Helen Hoang, Ibi Zoboi, Penny Reid, Jasmine Guillory. Good energy and a take on coming of age in India that is really no different from anywhere else in the world. Much enjoyed how Kavita Kaur acted this out! I’d listen to any other read by her!

Immature with a terrible ending

The first issue I had with this was that it jumped around in time so much that I had a difficult time keeping up with where we were in the story. It's only 200 pages, we don't need 6 different points in time. I also felt like Tanie and Sumer were so immature, always getting drunk, fighting with each other, and emotionally all over the place. The story didn't have a strong plot and the ending felt unnecessary. I didn't love the book before the end, but it really ruined it for me. There was a lot of Indian culture and the narrator did a good job with that part of it. It just wasn't for me.
