The Cover Speaks
The cover page of the book gracefully adorns two wedding rings entwined in each other. Below the rings, the dark shadow of naval ship gives a hint of a love story taking birth inside the waves of sea. 

The complete title of the book, "Love Lasts Forever... only if you don't marry your love" ignites fire inside one's mind. Then the question at the back cover, " So you think your love can last forever...? Get married! " is so intriguing that reader is compelled to think for a while and pick up the book to douse his curiosity for what actually is the other side of love.

Synopsis
Ronit was eighteen years old when he found himself falling head over heels in love with Aisha. He met her on his graduation day, after completing his studies which could eventually get him work in the Navy. Ronit is convinced beyond doubt that Aisha is his soul mate and that their love would last for eternity and a day. They get married after seven years but only after a week, Ronit realizes it might have been a mistake to have tied the knot. His Captain’s poignant love story might just change his perceptions on love and life but it is at that cusp that their ship gets hijacked by the notorious pirates of Somalia. What happens next? Will Ronit’s marriage end or does it get better because of all the events that happen which will change his life?

Book Review
Love Lasts Forever is an endearing romantic novel. It is not just one love story but two love stories of two different generations where one love story guides the other with its light. It is the story of two young lovers Ronit and Aisha, falling in love at first sight and after a courtship of seven years they get married. Then the sudden mind change of Ronit to get a divorce from Aisha brings a twist in the story. Amidst the love story, the pirates seize the ship in Somalia and there Ronit finds the other side of love through his Captain. A heart warming and captivating love story of his Captain with the deep belief that distance binds love together asks Ronit to rediscover his love. But the one-year captivity will either strengthen his love or extinguish the remaining flame. There is a lot more to discover in this book. Grab a copy and you will enjoy this tale of love with lovely questions of  love addressed in a lovely manner. You might have read many love stories ending at either marriage or death of one companion. But what after marriage ??? Does love continues to be sweet even after marriage or it starts losing its flavor. Check out yourself!

This book from the author of Delhi is so absorbing that readers can easily dunk in love while riding metro. You can also enjoy the title track of 'Love lasts forever', a beautifully composed song in this video.
