From the Review Pile # 7

From the Review Pile is a meme hosted by 
Stepping Out of the Page every Thursday.
The aim of this meme is to showcase books that you've received for review, but haven't yet got around to reading, in order to give the book some extra publicity.

The book is about four leading protaganists who live life with the utmost pleasure which is also a great bumpy ride. Ryan loves photography and would do anything to capture life on celluloid. Ever since he was a child he was waiting for certain answers from his Uncle about his parents. After the break-up with his girlfriend Melina, he was withdrawn and captured by a new wave of outlook. He believed his life was a big question mark. In contrast, Ria being an orphan feels terrible with the way her step-sister Simmy treats her. The only liking she has in her life is dentistry. After attending a seminar in Singapore, she meets Shawn. They date with utmost passion, but face a bumpy ride.

Days pass by and Genelia is counting hours when she would complete her double undergraduate programs to establish her dream project. She gets so involved that forgets that loving someone would not be too bad. She ignored the simple feelings of intimacy because of her failed relationships. Alternatively, working and making money makes Miguel so ambitious that he was willing to travel all the way to India. He falls for the new flawless internee Alysia and life begins to show the reality of relationships. 
With the unexpected network of unplanned meeting; the protagonists eventually meet at a party. The shock that stumbles over makes them wonder, what is going to happen? Does Ryan get over Melina and finds answers to his questions? How is Ria going to solve her problems with Shawn. Can Genelia trust her expertise to commence her establishment to a new business? What changes Miguel’s mind from being a workaholic? Does a new love bug land on the hearts of the characters? Would love enhance their outlook towards subsistence?
Life is like a Cocktail! How each one of them fills up their glass with tempting happiness is just a mystification. When the glass begins to be empty, they forget they need a refill…in other words, an alternative solution or a new compassion to re-ignite the magic of love.

I won this book on Goodreads First-reads Contest and looking forward to starting with it soon!
