It’s your move, wordfreak!
by Falguni Kothari
From the blurb
“Wordfreak and Worddiva hit it off right from their first online Scrabble game. Playing game after game every night leads to fun and flirty chats and a cerebral attraction so potent that it sizzles the broadband connection between them. The Scrabble-crazy duo cultivate their perfect relationship a virtual one. A bond where the past doesn t matter and neither do their names. A bond forged by cheesy words and raucous laughs.
But this simple and uncomplicated equation is shaken when Alisha Menon, parental-divorce survivor and successful divorce lawyer meets Aryan Save-the-Planet Chawla on a blind date. As reality intrudes on their online idyll, the rules of the game change forever. Soon, the two realise that some words cannot be taken lightly.
Can the real Wordfreak and Worddiva spell love in capital letters or is the game of life a deal-breaker for them?”
I wanted to read this book, because, come on! A blooming romance over scrabble? Aren’t you curious to know how the author pulls THAT off? To my disappointment, the book starts off with the aforementioned blind-date between the protagonists.. I was looking forward to sparks flying over scrabble and I had imagined a whole other premise for the book because the cover reads that way (don’t you think so?), but alas, it didn’t turn out to be so. Anyhoo, the copy that I got had the pages mixed up and I didn’t get to read the first few chapters after their initial “awkward” encounter, but I could follow the story.
