Ok first things first: I absolutely love finding stories about POC generally and Pakistanis particularly on this site, so thanks bunches for that.
Second, I enjoyed your writing style, flow, pace, pretty much all your characters, etc- except for Reyna. Honestly, she’s positively annoying and downright toxic. Hassan is by no means perfect, but he’s just much easier to empathize with. I think if I had known Reyna’s reasons for her actions earlier in the story (like the first couple chaps instead of the last) I would’ve disliked her less. But so much of this boiled down to awful communication and insecurity on her part, which I can (belatedly) understand but still not empathize or sympathize with, which makes it difficult to like the story overall bc she’s the main driver.
Nonetheless, despite my beef with your heroine, there’s no denying you’re a talented writer and I loved the Pakistani culture/Urdu/etc that you almost effortlessly weaved in.
Thanks and all best.

OMGG! You responded to my review! Ahh! Sorry for freaking out! I just love your writing! Specially this story! You have a way of making your readers feel connected to the character! I remember shedding tears and laughing along with the main character. You are Truly an amazing writer! Thanks for the info on medicine. I am currently in the process of studying for med school admission exam. God willing, I will be able to become a doctor like you! :) I really want to do pediatric or surgery. Sorry for this huge post, I had bit too much coffee too. Good luck with the medicine journey! And can't wait to read more of your writing! :)

Omg. Finally! An update! This is one of my fav stories, and there's finally an update! almost couldn't believe there was an update when I saw the email. I'm so glad that those two finally worked out all that baggage. I mean seriously, they deserve to be happy after all of that. I hope that you update soon! I love reading this story and learning about all the rich culture. Really, please update soon! Two years is just way too long!

I don't know but I still hate Hassan and I think she forgave him too easily. It doesn't feel like he explained it all that well about the girls and I couldn't trust him knowing the whole basis of our relationship was a lie and knowing he's even capable of pretending to feel something for me while going around with other girls behind my back.
And pretty words and promises are only pretty words after all.

WHAT?! I seriously thought this chapter might have potentially been the end . . . or close to the end! PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE UPDATE! It angers me because after all there troubles, they finally get married and again so many more problems arise. I guess that is part of life, there will always be problems. I feel like I can really understand Reyna. I understand why she does what she does, her insecurities, and why she wanted to go out there. I do agree with Hassan, I miss her old self. I also miss her friendship with Sara, I actually can't believe Hassan cheated on her, even though it was technically a break. He seems like such a great guy and then you hear this and it really hurts. I wonder how the two will get through that. Well, I do hope you update when you can. :)

I love this story!

oh boy please don't make their relationship more complicated than it already is. I can't stand the unreasonableness of their point of views. But it is a good story and I do want to read more so please get another chapter updated.

OMG PLEASE UPDATE SOON. They can't break up again :(
Zara's being silly and refuses to read new chapters, she wants to read it all from the beginning so I can't even talk to her about it...
So much love for you and this story. You're making me wanna write now!
