Rayna’s Immutable Laws from #book #TroubleHasANewName by @Adite

Hello Readers !

Books, authors and you lovely readers out there form our closest circle of #FriendsForLife

And this week we have something new from our long time friend Adite !

Adite says she discovered Mills & Boon romances and the amazing assortment of drool-worthy TDH heroes in her teens. At around the same time she fell in love with song-and-dance
Bollywood romances. Growing up in a home with a filmmaker dad who AB
worked in the world’s largest movie industry(yes, Bollywood!), and a voracious reader for a mum, it was inevitable that she would come to love both films and books.

Her Latest offering “Trouble has a New Name” is an amalgamation of both her love interests, an extremely “Bollywood” plot penned down with great zeal.

Sounds interesting right ? here is a sneak peek on the plot…

“Trouble Has a New Name” (naughty right from the title name !) is a fun-filled romantic comedy set in theAdite Andaman Islands about a young woman who has to come to terms with her recent breakup and fight off the attraction she feels for the very handsome hotelier she meets at her best friend’s big fat Indian wedding.

In addition to the supper attractive hero, we just fell in love with Rayna Dutta….our heroine

Rayna Dutt, is an upcoming model, dumped by her boyfriend. She is Impulsive, Feisty and attracts trouble at every moment. She is very much a girl next door but likes to live life her own way by .
She has her own set of self-designed laws which is fondly called “Rayna’s Book of Immutable Laws”

 

 

As per Rayna Book of Immutable Laws—(RBIL)

             Anything that could go wrong usually did!

 

What’s more interesting are the laws themselves and how they they keep proving true in her life…read on her immutable laws and some instances on how they play out in her life 🙂

RBIL #1 : Footwear gaffe equals a disastrous day ahead.

“The Merc12721501_ledes soundlessly swept out of the drive way and raced down the road skirting the seafront on its way to the airport. Rayna looked out anxiously, praying they would not get stuck in a traffic jam. Thankfully,
being a Sunday morning, the streets were devoid of the usual week day bumper-to-bumper traffic. If all went well—fingers firmly crossed—they should cover the distance to the airport in twelve minutes, tops. She glanced at her wrist and realized she’d forgotten to strap on her watch.Shoot! Her eyes strayed to her feet and she froze in hor
ror.Holy crap! She was still wearing her flip-flops with the cute fluffy pink teddy bears on them”

RBIL #2: Trust a photographer to be around at the most inconvenient moment

“‘Sorry to keep you all waiting,’ she said, flashing her million-watt smile. ‘I’d love to blame the horrendous traffic but, the fact is, I got a little carried away last night and decided to start the wedding celebrations a few hours in advance and overslept. Subsey pyaari saheli ki shaadi hai…thoda toh partying banta hai, na?’Surely a girl couldn’t be blamed for partying through the 13524810_l
night on the occasion of her best

friend’s upcoming nuptials? Her saucy remark got some laughs, smiles and a lusty‘ banta hai, banta hai!’—absolutely!—from a passenger seated at the rear of the plane. Waving in acknowledgement to her unknown ally, she collapsed into the creamy soft seat just as a flashbulb went off in her face.”

 

RBIL #3:—Turbulence, emotional turmoil and tequila make for a lethal combination

“Her tum8830779_xxlmy lurched ominously—this time as a physical reaction to the plane hitting an air pocket. Her knuckles turned white as she gripped the armrests with all her strength. Even as the captain alerted the passengers of a turbulent patch, her stomach did yet another desperate dive and something hot and horrid gushed up to her throat.”

 

RBIL #4: Trouble always comes neatly wrapped in large-size packs

“Milee squeezed her arm. ‘Please don’t be mad at me,Rayna… It’s not as if you and Sid are in Splitsville, even if you have argued.’Rayna embraced her friend, trying to hide the dismay she felt. ‘Of course I’m not mad. Don’t worry—it will be fine.’”

RBIL #5: Alert! Attraction on the rebound is a really,really bad idea!

“Milee hugged her back in relief. ‘Oh, thank God!’He had totally bowled her over with his disarming12323147_xxl confession. Honestly, she didn’t know what to think.She had gone from exchanging insults to sharing a drink with Neel in the space of a few hours. And she
still couldn’t figure out whether she wanted to keep him at arm’s length or accept his offer of a truce. The conflicting signals being sent out by her mind and body were making her behave like a traffic light on the blink.She’d never reacted like this to any man before. The intensity of the physical attraction s
he’d felt for him was being compounded several times over by his utterly charming behavior.”

RBIL #6 : Try as you might to stay away from trouble, it always finds you!

“As Maya hurried off, Rayna wished she could evict Agra Aunty and the trouble making trio from the island.She stepped onto the cobbled pathwayAttractive couple walking in the countryside

leading to the villa when she saw two of them walking down arm in arm towards her—the Deceitful Dumper and his Diva!”

A Sneak Peek: What Would I Tell Her At 13 by @SueGhoshWriter

ImageAt the end of the day, the most overwhelming key to a child’s success is the positive involvement of parents – Jane D. Hull

Parenting – as much as it is rewarding it is an overwhelming responsibility esp. when the kids enter their teens

What Would I Tell Her @ 13: Every parent’s answer to the challenging Teens

Here is a sneak peek on what the book is about and the issues it touches 

Introduction: While a mother can be a role model to her daughter with her behavior, grooming habits and attitude, a father will affect her perception of herself as a woman. What this really means is that praises at dance recitals and letting your little girl know that she is a pretty, loved daughter, needs to come from the father too. In fact, the male parent is your daughter’s role model for the opposite sex. Think about him as a template of sorts.

Hello Independence:  A parent has to wonder if he or she is giving her children too much independence too soon. It is natural to worry about trusting your daughter and giving her freedom at an age where she may be too young to make sound judgments and thus may inadvertently compromise on her own safety and well-being.

The Power of Confidence: For those who think that girls shouldn’t play sports, you’ll only hinder her self-confidence if you tell her that she will not be able to play one. Let her find out for herself what she is good at and bad at. Discovering Your Voice: The thirteen-year-old has a lot to observe and a lot to selectively take in or ignore. In other words, all of these elements in her daily life are bound to contribute to her voice. It doesn’t happen in a day or a week. It will take time, but when she discovers her voice, her desires will be a sum of her experiences and interactions.

Newer, Bigger Goals: It’s alright. She’s only thirteen, so experimentation and finding out what her choices are is normal. Just make sure that she knows what her choices are because too many parents set early vocational goals for their teens, giving them misery later when they find themselves stuck in a career that has nothing to do with their aptitude and interests.

The First Crush:  Parents, your daughter will have that exciting first crush, regardless of your attempts to stop her. You could put her in an all girls’ school and still see her falling for a boy at an inter-school event, in the neighbourhood or somewhere else. If you tell her to stop talking to boys, that would be unhealthy. There is no reason why she should think that boys and girls are not supposed to interact with one another.

Friendship & Cliques: While you are monitoring your thirteen-year-old’s relationships with her friends and Best Friend Forever (BFF), don’t be surprised to realise that she is a member of a clique. A clique is a small group of people who are very close to each other and are reluctant to let others join them. Cliques typically consist of a few girls who talk alike, have the same interests, dress alike and spend all their time together.

Staying Safe Offline & Online: The attachment to digital technology is a phenomenon that previous generations will have trouble identifying with. Recent research indicates that social media including Facebook and Twitter are preferred over email – by people of all ages. The trouble with being so technologically savvy is that girls with hardly any maturity have access to everybody and everything, with too many people having access to them too.
