"Against All Odds"

Author: Jazz Singh

Against all Odds is a lovely romance.

The characters Sanjana and Abhi are beautifully crafted, complete with rather large chips on their shoulders. The conflict is very believable - I particularly liked the part where Sanjana finds a hundred reasons why they should not be together - beautifully done, Jazz Singh!

The dialogues between the two are superbly constructed - very natural and unaffected - here's an example:

Sanjana took out the tins of food and started to put them away in the fridge.

“We can have biryani, is that okay with you? I’ll just nip outside and get some curd.” She fished in her bag for her wallet but Abhimanyu stopped her. “I’ll get it.”

Sanjana laughed. “Have you ever shopped for curd in your life?”

Abhimanyu looked at her laughing face and grimaced. “Actually, no. But there’s always a first time.”

The story has its share of emotional ups and downs - it made me shed a couple of tears at one of the last few scenes in Kausali.

Overall, a quick five-star read, with quite a bit of sizzle!

Jazz Singh 

The Blurb

The first time they collide, he thinks she’s a con artist, she believes he’s an arrogant snob.

It takes several meetings to change their minds about each other, but eventually, Abhimanyu and Sanjana strike up a friendship that seems destined to turn into something more. He’s a rich successful businessman, however, and she’s a small-town girl who doesn’t fit into his glittering world; a fact that Abhimanyu’s mother has taken pains to point out.

Will they ever overcome the odds, or are their lives on parallel tracks, never destined to cross?

Dear Readers,

Jazz Singh is one of the most elusive writers I have met. So respecting her need for privacy we have not asked her for a profile picture or a writeup. Long back, when I had first interacted with her.. I had asked her the reason behind this. Her answer was... I want to be known for my work. All I can say to that is... She will be...
