About the Book- It all comes back to you

After Kiran Noorani’s mom died, Kiran vowed to keep her dad and sister, Amira, close. Then out of the blue, Amira announces that she’s dating someone and might move cross-country with him. Kiran is thrown.

Deen Malik is thrilled that his older brother, Faisal, has found a great girlfriend, even if it’s getting serious quickly. Maybe now their parents’ focus will shift off Deen, who feels intense pressure to be the perfect son.

When Deen and Kiran come fact to face, they silently agree to keep their past a secret. Four years ago–before Amira and Faisal met–Kiran and Deen dated. But Deen ghosted Kiran with no explanation. Kiran will stop at nothing to find out what happened, and Deen will do anything, even if it means sabotaging his brother’s relationship, to keep her from reaching the truth. Though the chemistry between Kiran and Deen is undeniable, can either of them take down their walls?

Our Review of It all comes back to you

It all comes back to you, is a sweet, quick and fun book. It has all the elements that you would find in a YA romance book. So in that regard, if you are a fan of the YA romance world, then you will love it because it comes with all the required ingredients. I had this book on audio and it was quite fun. I did enjoy it but there was one point that I wished the book had paid attention to, the book could have been even more fun.

The USP of the book is that it is a YA romance set in south Asian culture and this is what I felt wasn’t much explored in the book. Especially Pakistani culture. You get a glimpse here and there but apart from that I felt that the book sort of forgot that they could play on this cultural aspect a bit more. It would have been lovely to see a bit more of Pakistani culture because whatever the book managed to show it, it was fun. 

Apart from that part, I felt the book did manage to grab eyeballs by trying to present how romance and relationships usually work in a traditional south Asian culture. Be it the religion, siblings, parents or even the role of education and career in an average south Asian culture was beautifully weaved and that is why I wished I could get to see more of the cultural aspect of the book. But then this could be me 😛

I must say that I hated the FC ( again this is my thing ). I had this maddening urge to portal myself into the story and knock some sense into her. ( you would see why when you read the book) but I guess that’s what the book is trying to show. The way different people react and behave to things happening in their life.


In conclusion, I would say that the book is a quick and sweet read. Even though I wished it had used the south Asian culture aspect a bit more to make the book even more interesting, the rest of the book has worked well. if you are a fan of YA romance, then the book would appeal to you.
