Description
Done With Men is the debut book by Shuchi Singh Kalra, and has already been winning praise from early readers and reviewers. "Perfectly summarises the life of a modern day working woman with an easy going style of writing that will go down well with all readers. Good job, Shuchi Kalra!" - Faraaz Kazi, bestselling author of Truly, Madly Deeply and The Other Side. "Sweet and saucy, effervescent and entertaining, Down With Men is a rollicking Valentine's Day treat!" - Vibha Batra, bestselling author of Sweet Sixteen (Yeah, Right!), Seventeen and Done and forthcoming Eighteen and Wiser. "Shuchi Singh Kalra ... has a perfect voice for women's fiction with her dry humour and chatty writing style. Full marks to this one!" - Contemporary Romance Reviews Book Blurb: Travel journo, Kairavi Krishna (Kay) has had it with men. After a series of disasters (losers, philanderers, leeches, mama's boys and possessive psychos), she is all too tempted to give up on the prospect of ever finding love. Accompanied by her best friend and flat-mate Baani, she heads to Goa, hoping to get away with a resolve to stay clear of the male species. Goa, however, has a host of surprises in store for her. Ricky, her pesky ex-boyfriend, is busy painting the town red with his hot new girlfriend. Now what is poor Kay to do, other than overdose on vodka, smoke pot, get an outrageous tattoo and fall off the hotel balcony? She wakes up in the hospital to the tender ministrations of Dr. Vivian D'Mello--suave and handsome. Will Kay stick to her guns or will she fall for his ridiculously sexy charms? But what's up with the mixed signals he's giving out?

Delightful debut rom-com from Shuchi Kalra!

Done With Men is like a refreshingly cool wave in a sea of books! I thoroughly enjoyed Shuchi’s writing style, her metaphors, the language and the presentation. One can’t help liking all the characters in the book, except maybe the ex-boyfriend – but then, unless he’s bad, how does Kairavi, the heroine, get the good doctor? So yes, I think Shuchi has drawn the characters really well! And it is a totally believable story!

The book is a quick read, at about 150 pages and progresses pretty fast...

Fresh wine with a matured taste !!

The title makes you pick this one! (though it was Author's name too for me to pick this one).

A light, humorous, fun-filled book with timely highlights of the dark shades and the fair shades of protagonist.

I particularly loved the writing style. It keeps you bonded to the story till the end. You will be tempted to read it in one go. It has many LOL moments and ROFL ones I was actually laughing out loud while I was reading it on my way back from office.

It has Goa-flavor of party, moods, f...

Great Characters, Funny one-liners

DWM is a light romantic comedy set in Goa.

But when she crosses path with the super sexy Orthopedic in a hospital, she starts to look forward to meeting this suave and sexy doctor and falls head over heels in love with him. Is she taking a hasty de...

Full on entertainment!

To be honest, chick-lit works are not my cup of tea. However, Done With Men turned out to be a quite entertaining piece of work. The language used is simple and easy to understand. Yet, it is quite witty and the narration is very entertaining itself. The characters are relatable and you won't stop turning one page after another. This is the kind of book which can make a tedious journey, or an idle afternoon exciting. Go for it! :)

Spicy,Saucy and So Smooth!

Indian Chick-lit romance has sure come a long way!
Shuchi does full justice to the genre and comes out flying high.
Done With Men is spicy yet easy to read and kept me glued till the end. I had to take a break while reading and I could not wait to get back to the book.
In-fact it left me wanting for more stories about Kay and her friends and maybe there is another novel for Kay's friend.
I do not need to mention anything more about Dr. Vivian D’Mello other than the fact that I too wanted to ...

A delightful book, with a wonderful, true-to-life heroine.

Lively, bubbly journalist Kairavi Krishna is a 21st-century woman, with a job, several lousy relationships with the opposite sex in her past and a great best friend. When she's on assignment in Goa and sees her ex-boyfriend (whom she dumped) having a great time on the dance floor, she consoles herself with several vodka shots... and finds herself lying in a hospital bed, with a dislocated shoulder, a fractured clavicle and a lot of pain the next day. Dr. Vivian D'Mello is very different from ...

Great Job by A Debut Writer.

As a Beginner in reading community, I was looking for a short length novella that could generate some interest of reading in me. The Title and the Book Cover suitably attracts the reader. Here I was sitting with the novella in my hands, excited and scared both. A good Creation would have excited me to read more novels, on the other side a dull boring one would have killed the interest totally.

The Novella has bound me with its ups and downs and i enjoyed the roller coaster ride through out...

Nice read!

Done With Men is a short and sweet story. Lots of humor and mushy romance makes it a nice read. Work of a debutante who writes like a veteran. :)
