Review- Messed Up! But all for love is a realistic and interesting second novel written by Arvind Parashar.
This book was interesting and I was hooked to the story. The book ends with positive notes and teaches us a few things about love.

The Blurb is short, crisp and interesting.
Language and Narration- The Language of the book is simple and easy to comprehend. Narration is done well and it is in first person narrative. Editing is done quiet well and the book is without any grammatical mistakes.
Characterization- All the characters are interesting and author have done well to build the characters and their emotions as the story continues.
Other characters are also well portrayed.
Theme- Theme of the book is Love, Saving a sinking relationship as the title suggests. It also includes friendship, thriller and love.
Storyline and Plot-As I said earlier, the story is interesting. The Story pace is slow for a few pages but it increases pace after that and events happen one after the other quickly.
However, Plot is common with most of the romance thrillers, this book gives us an engaging storyline, a good ending, interesting characters and a few important life lessons.
