When Alisha Menon--divorce lawyer, chronic workaholic, and the Worddiva of word games--meets her online nemesis, Wordfreak, on a blind date at a swanky Mumbai caf , she cannot believe he's the same word nerd she battles tiles with at online Scrabble most nights.
In real life, Wordfreak is Aryan Rajaram Chawla, a green architect, a Page 3 god, and more than three years Alisha's junior. In other words, he's totally incompatible with her.
But their instant attraction cannot be denied. And, despite being wary of relationships because of their broken family backgrounds, Alisha and Aryan find themselves falling for each other--hard.
Then, an unthinkable tragedy occurs, and Aryan nearly loses Alisha, just like he lost his mother, and all his fears about relationships and loss resurface.
With the past catching up fast, Alisha and Aryan must decide whether to risk their hearts and trust their feelings, or is the word LOVE a deal-breaker?
