Love Sees No Reason by Reshma Ranjan

c4b2f-loveseesnoreasonWhen The Book Club announces the Tornado giveaway, I take as an opportunity to tweet, tweet and tweet while participating in the giveaway. There have been three Tornados so far and I have been lucky enough to have won books in all the three of them. This year in the third giveaway, the book that I really wanted to win was Love Sees No Reason by Reshma Ranjan and was glad when I received the book as a prize for winning the giveaway.

The blurb:

Suraj’s hasty marriage to a complete stranger Ria Nair, makes Suhaan become suspicious about the sister-in-law he has never met. The fact that the couple adopt a baby immediately after the wedding, only serves to increase his antagonism.
Who is this Ria, and why did she marry his brother?

Suraj dies, forcing Suhaan to return to the homestead to take over the family business. That’s when the inevitable happens – he comes face to face with his brother’s widow and discovers that he is attracted to her.

On one level, Ria is all innocence and vulnerability. On another, is her mysterious and hurried marriage to his brother. She could be a gold digger.

Is his attraction for her mere lust – or could it be… love?

The story:

Ria Nair, heartbroken after the death of her fiancé, goes to an orphanage during her free time to keep herself busy. There she meets Mia, a newborn orphan, who makes her happy and wants to adopt her. But the orphanage allows only allows married couples to adopt children. That is not all, there is Suraj Nair, a rich man, who also wants to adopt Mia. Suraj has a complication, he is unmarried and has a terminal illness. He wants to be happy till he is alive. So they strike a balance, and decide to have a marriage of convenience, for Mia’s sake, for Suraj’s sake and for Ria’s sake. And they are a happy family until Suraj dies.

Ria knows that Suraj has a twin Suhaan, but she has never met him. She does not know that they are identical in looks but have different nature. Suhaan has a pre-conceived notion about her, a bad impression on her. He feels that Ria married Suraj for his money because she knew that he was rich, ill and about to die.

So when Suhaan comes back to the haveli after Suraj’s death, Ria runs into his arms because she thinks that Suraj is back.

They are attracted to each other but Suhaan’s impression of her and her own confusions and she runs away.

My take:

The cover is pink, and has the silhouettes of the side profile of a girl and a boy inside a heart. I loved the cover, it is beautiful. I finished the book in one day, so you can imagine the pace of the book.

The characters are realistic and their feelings have been well depicted. The author has depicted the relationship between Ria and Suraj beautifully. The language is simple and the book has been written in a way that it is unputdownable. The story has all the ingredients of a movie, romance, suspense, drama, jealousy, suspicion…..

I loved the book and the characters a lot.
