A streak of love can sometimes be found at the most unexpected of times, at the most unexpected of places.
After her father grants her a strict, one-year deadline to try her hand at writing, twenty-two-year-old freelance writer, Avantika Desai, moves to Pune. There, she hopes to land a job at her favorite publishing company. However, with time running out and her chances of securing her dream job fast diminishing, all hope seems lost for Avantika.
Meanwhile, Jay Thomas accepts the invitation from his old friend and Kesar Villa’s landlady, Persis, to move in as the new property manager. He is, however, in for a surprise as the building couldn’t have been in a worse condition. A broken elevator, maintenance issues, and a new challenge every day are just some of the headaches Jay has to put up with.
As Avantika navigates the ups and downs of living alone in a cosmopolitan city with no friends, her life soon becomes a series of misadventures, breakdowns, and break-ins when Jay comes into the picture.
But what will Avantika do with the irresistible tug at her heartstrings and the ridiculous thoughts about kissing Jay when two things seem apparent: Jay will be leaving when his work at Kesar Villa is done, and she will be leaving when the year is up.
Featuring a motley group of residents who need to learn new rules, a stubborn but kind landlady, and a notorious cat named Simba, The Love Streak is the perfect strangers-to-lovers romance.
