Married for One Reason Only by Dani Collins


A story of discovery 
Vijay is a security consultant and software developer who has come to Milan to try and get a DNA sample from model Oriel, who is suspected to be the secret daughter of a famous Bollywood actress 
I loved Oriel, she is a successful model but also a really genuine person. She adores her adoptive parents and has been with them since she was a baby and they love her and support her in whatever she does. She is strong and determined but also nervous when it comes to finding out about her birth parents which I totally understand and which made her seem more genuine and made me adore her more 
I’m not going to lie, I really didn’t like Vijay at the start of the book. He only went to see Oriel with one agenda, to get her DNA, and he seemed kind of creepy in the manner he went about it. However as the story developed and I understood why he did what he did and the reason for the underhandedness I started to like him more as a character. He would do anything for his sister and very quickly that grew to include Oriel, however his redeeming traits did get a knock back when he didn’t treat Oriel as well as she should and even though he had his reasons I struggled with it. He does however change over the book and by the end I did start to love him as a character and could better see what drew Oriel to him
Although Oriels adoption becomes one of the main parts of the story, I still really enjoyed reading about her relationship with her adoptive parents, the are a true family and whilst I could understand Oriels curiosity about her birth parents, she always knew that her parents would be there for her no matter what
Both Oriel and Vijay have trouble trusting, especially in relationships where they may get hurt and seeing them start to realise what is important and their emotions as things happen made them feel so much more real to me. I could totally see this story happening in real life and I think that, along with so much else, had me hooked and addicted to this book. I became so invested in the characters and their story and I wish that the book was longer so I didn’t have to say goodbye to Oriel and Vijay
I would recommend this book to those who enjoy a romance with a lot of drama and some unexpected twists that will have you hooked
