Love doesn’t always have to make sense …
When Daisy Penvean meets Nathaniel Dalton whilst visiting a friend in Nashville, it seems there are a million and one reasons for them not to be together. Nathaniel’s job as a mergers and acquisitions manager means sharp suits and immaculate hair, whereas Daisy’s work as a children’s book illustrator lends itself to a more carefree, laidback style. And, as Daisy lives in England, there’s also the small matter of the Atlantic Ocean between them.
But when Nathaniel’s job takes him to London to oversee the merger of a small publisher with a large American company, he and Daisy meet again under very different circumstances. Because Daisy works for the publisher involved in the deal, and if Nathaniel does his job, it could mean she loses hers …
Book Review ~ ‘Love Me for a Reason’ by Angela Britnell ~ 5 Stars!
I love the Nashville Connections series, and as this was the first novel in the series following two lovely novellas, I was really excited. Angela Britnell delivers a gorgeous romance, with fun, friends, family and angst all rolled into one delicious package.
I had to warm to our hero Nathaniel, because I could sense that one wrong move and he could really hurt Daisy, who I rooted for from the word go. She was quirky, fun and had a philosophy of life that I really connected with. So for me, Nathaniel had to work to deserve Daisy, and my favourite parts of this novel were seeing him come out of his work-is-everything shell and begin to accept the imperfect as perfect in its own way. I loved the psychological undertones to Nathaniel’s character development, seeing his flaring up of OCD tendencies when he is reminded of his less-than-normal childhood, and how he clammed up and refused to talk about it.
Daisy was the perfect match for Nathaniel and their romantic moments were perfectly balanced with Daisy’s jokes and banter, which Nathaniel had to come to understand and not take seriously. I adored how they became better people because of what they had learnt from the other. But it’s not all sunshine and daisies for our main characters, and with the help of their friends and families, they had to overcome challenges, and make changes and allowances to make their relationship work.
