Singer and songwriter Jamie York is suffering from writer's block. When he meets the unexpectedly inspirational Mukti, suddenly his creativity knows no bounds and he feels torn. He has to keep seeing her, but what will she make of his tortured soul? Little does he know that Mukti has her own secrets and is just as troubled as he is. Her name translates as 'freedom' in her native tongue Bengali, but she is anything but free.
Recent graduate Mukti Khan has just started a new job in the City and is determined to work hard and keep people at bay. All that changes after a chance encounter with the mysterious Jamie. He fascinates her like no one ever has and she just has to get to know him better. But is she truly capable of letting him in?
As an unlikely friendship develops between the two, will Jamie and Mukti be able to help each other come to terms with their pasts and move forward together, or do some ghosts haunt us forever?
Set in London, this contemporary romance novel is perfect for lovers of new adult romance. If you like love stories with serious issues and characters with depth, you will love the Soulmates Saga, a series about life, love, friendship, family, music, art, destiny, and soul mates.
Praise for the book:
"A truly fantastic read. The two main characters are cleverly crafted, impeccable. Their depth makes them feel real. It is a story of heartbreak, broken pieces and that gratifying light at the end of the long dark tunnel as a new and pure love heals old wounds and glues the pieces back together. It is a feel good read which I highly recommend to all who love contemporary romance. Loved it."

"I loved this book. I can't believe that this is the author's first book; the way is written is excellent. I was captured from the beginning of the story. A must read."
"This is not your typical chic-lit book. There is no sloppy romance and no mushy words. This is truly a one of a kind book. Little by little, the story was told to me and it was told perfectly. This is definitely a must read."
~A Novel Review
"Grips you from start to finish. There are so many things I love about this novel. Jamie's creativity. Mukti's determination. Twists and turns with every chapter. But most of all, I love that you get to see the characters grow and develop."
"Very well written, I felt like I knew the characters myself."

This is a story of two people with many secrets who end up helping each other get by those secrets and fall in love. Meet Jamie. Jamie comes from a privileged family. When the love of his life, Sarah, publically humiliates him, he becomes somewhat of a recluse. Jamie pretty much stops living, doing just enough to get by. He even suffers from writer’s block, unable to write his beautiful lyrics and music. That, is until he meets Mutki. Mutki has her own secrets. Being a middle child she feels her family, except her younger sister, ignore her. When her university boyfriend invites her to a party things do not go as planned and her life is shattered. She is not considered damaged and feels she will never lover again. Mutki gets a new job and starts taking her lunches outside by the needle. This is where Jamie and Mutki first meet and start their friendship. This is not your typical chic lit book. There is no sloppy romance and no mushy words. This is truly a one of a kind book. I loved how Jamie and Mutki’s secrets were not told at the beginning of the story. Little by little the story was told to me and it was told perfectly. Jamie started out being the character I was not sure I would ever really like or understand, of course I ended up truly loving him. I mean how could you understand someone who would not communicate with anyone, even when asked a direct question. Mutki was a character I felt sympathy for. I felt sorry that her family ignored her and did not offer her the support she needed and deserved. But I also was in awe of her strength. Even with no encouragement from Jamie she refuses to stop hoping to see him every day at lunch. Rain, snow, sleet, ice, nothing kept her away from the needle every day. I cannot believe this is Neha’s first book. It is perfect. This is definitely a must read.
