The story is written in past tense but the present view of Author makes the story more interesting. The whole book ‘Love Story? Seriously!’ Is about unsuccessful Love stories of Samar. The story starts when a teenage boy Samar and his mom travels to the hills of West Bengal and their destination was Boarding School. Samar got admission in boarding school and there he met a girl Sapna (his 1st crush) he fell in love with Sapna in their first meeting. But Sapna refused his love, then Samar starts harming himself and somehow he manages to forget Sapna and manages to get 78.8 percentage marks in his board exams. Then he gets admitted in College where he found his second crush of his life Samriddhi .They first met in a lab then Samar again falls in love with her, but again he has to face rejection by Samriddhi. Now third girl enters in Samar’s life Surbhi and again Samar’s innocent heart was ready to fall in love with Surbhi and face one more rejection… Then Samar got Job in COGNIZANT but still he is waiting for his first love. Then after few years Samar’s family decides to marry him with a girl Shrija. Samar tries to convince his family that he doesn’t want to marry but he fails. Now Samar is married and still he doesn’t get his first love. But after his marriage he and his wife live in different places in the same city. After this, story becomes very interesting and everyone should read it. The whole story is very interesting but I liked the end of the story most. Shivi Pandey has done very nice work with the story and his grip in the story can be observed.
