Romance Shorts is a collection of four short romantic stories. The blurb and the title of the book clears it all, that the book is all about love stories. The cover of the book is so different and beautiful. The cover was very colourful. I loved each and every story. Starting with the first story, ” Nargis Through My Summers” is a wonderful story and will remind everyone about their first crush, one sided love. The whole story was so so beautifully expressed. Even if it is one sided, we are so deeply attached to that first love that their happiness and sadness both matters to us a lot. The second story, ” Mine Forever”, is of a person who is being awarded as the most successful young entrepreneur of the year but misses his love of life” Sheetal”. This story teaches us love remains even after death. The third story ” Memories” had some deep secrets.So even I am not going to share anything. Ssshhh,let it be a secret. Last but not the least,” Love came calling” is a story of a girl, who had gone through one bitter relationship. Will she give a chance to love again in her life. Overall,this book was an amazing read. I loved it. The narration was quite simple and easy to understand. One would get attached reading to it.
