Confident, sassy, career girl, Lola meets cool, handsome, unpredictable hunk, Wole at a party in London. He pushes all the right buttons for her, and sparks fly. Wole is also irresistibly drawn to Lola, and before long, they get together in a wonderful romance. But Wole is not all that he seems, and he is holding back some dark secrets.
Things start to unravel when Wole's past begins to catch up with him and Lola has to decide if Wole is worth the trouble that threatens to overwhelm her. Find out in this captivating book if their love will overcome the trials of a murder investigation, an arrest, a meddling relative and a trip halfway across the world, or whether they both give up and go their separate ways.

I received a copy of Nothing Comes Close by Tolulope Popoola in exchange for an honest review.

I really liked this book. Boy meets Girl and they fall in love and live happily ever after, not so easy.

I really had to pay attention to this book. There were many characters, each one dealing with their own life issues which were very relevant to real life and it was written in sections, easy to confuse the characters.

There were many unexpected twists in the plot which I did not see coming and threw me for a loop for sure, but ultimately this is a book of friendship, loyalty and love - which we all know - can and will conquer all.

A great read.

Nothing Comes Close is the debut novel by author author Tolulope Popoola, who weaves an intriguing romantic suspense tale about love, life, friendships and relationships. Set in London and Nigeria, and written in an alternating first person narrative, the reader follows the story of Lola and Wole, who meet at a party and embark on a whirlwind romance, only to have Wole's dark past catch up with him, causing their budding relationship to have numerous obstacles that stands in their way of love and happiness. Can Lola and Wole's love overcome the obstacles, or will their relationship come to an untimely end?

I really enjoyed this story which is written in an African style that reflects the author's heritage. I was fascinated with the storyline as it is different from what I am used to reading. With a three-dimensional cast of characters; witty dialogue and interactions; and a storyline that mixes romance with a mystery that provides a lot of intriguing drama, suspense, twists and turns; Nothing Comes Close engages the reader to follow along as the tumultuous relationship of Lola and Wole unfolds.

Interwoven throughout the story are normal life issues that Lola and her four girlfriends are dealing with, they are normal career and personal issues that are believable and easy for the reader to relate to. What captivated my interest the most was Wole's story, his complicated and dark past full of secrets is riveting and keeps you guessing as it comes to light, but deep down you know that he has a good heart and you can't help but feel for him. I loved how the author delves into the complications of life challenges that arise in love relationships, that is the crux of the dilemma that Lola and Wole face, and it makes this a classic love story with a twist of mystery and suspense thrown in the mix.

Nothing Comes Close is an enjoyable romantic suspense novel that will keep the reader entertained!

4.0 su 5 stelle An African Love Story 9 marzo 2013

A truly African love story, Nothing Comes Close shows us how African women fall in love—cautiously but completely. It is London sometime in the 2000s. Four young women—Lola, Funmi, Temmy, Maureen, and Titi—are caught up in the usual London hustle, doing the career thing and still finding time to look pretty at parties and bars. But their lives aren’t perfect, especially for Lola, who is nursing a broken heart and hanging on to a job—as a financial analyst—that she doesn’t like. At a house party organized by one of the girls, she meets Wole. The attraction is instant, but in her classic Nigerian-girl approach to romance, she is hesitant, always worrying about “losing all sense of caution.” But when unexpected tragedy strikes in the form of a murder, the force of desire heightened by the pain of loss drives Lola into Wole’s arms. From that point, the driving question of the plot becomes: will Wole reward her need for comfort with love or will his dark past destroy their chance for happiness?

That's the gist of the novel, which clearly shows that it has the elements for a perfect romance story—a broken hearted young woman and a guy with a dark secret. But, then, you have to read the novel to see what Popoola does with this classic romance plot and how she takes something very classic and makes it exciting and nicely African. Before I began reading, I was worried that Nothing Comes Close would be a generic romance novel about characters with African names. My worries were certainly dispelled as it became apparent that the characters and their lives were crafted by someone who has an eye for and a sense of how African woman think about love and romance.

The lead female character, Lola, begins the story in first-person, but she doesn’t hold the floor for too long. The second chapter has Wole picking up the story where she left off. This chapter-by-chapter shifts in perspective is one of the most successful aspects of the novel. Each character picks up where the other stopped, so that with each new revelation in the plot, there is a new voice. This narrative quirk works exceedingly well to keep the reader hooked.

If you enjoyed reading Chibundo Onuzo's Spider King's Daughter, you'll like Nothing Comes Close. It is a romance novel, an adorable chick lit, but it also has a touch of thriller and mystery.

(parts of the review culled from my review of the novel for a Nigerian life style and fashion blog.)

I have mixed feelings about this book and I will be sharing those.

Nothing Comes Close is said to be in the genre of contemporary romance/ chick-lit, so I picked it up wanting some funny and romantic moments. I don't think it fit those genres well enough for me personally. I was left wanting for more romance and some chick-lit fun. I found this book to be more dramatic and thriller than romantic or chick-lit. It was more serious than I expected it to be.

Things I liked-

The plot is good enough and has some ups and downs.

The book is not slow paced if anything.

I see a bit of romance here and there.

There is some element of surprise and mystery involved.

The book has a lot going on - with Lola (the main character), Wole (her boyfriend) and Lola's girlfriends.

Things I would have rather steered clear of -

The book has so much going on that I would rather have it go one way than everywhere all at once. It becomes a bit of mumbo jumbo when there are too many characters and their lives involved and not enough pages to go through them slowly.

The author's writing style and use of language other than English. I understand and wish to cut the author some slack when it comes to writing since I believe her first language is not English but I found the writing style to be a bit different and took me some time to adapt to. Also, the use of language other than English (probably Nigerian) kind of irked me because I couldn't understand the expressions. Maybe a footnote or word dictionary at the end of the book would have helped.

The characters irritated me to some extent because they were a tad too dramatic for my taste. However, having said that, people like this may exist, it's just that I have done well not to cross their paths.

The insertion of a sort of mystery/thriller within this book didn't work for me because even though the plot had something to offer, it wasn't executed with precision. And perhaps needed some editing.

Overall, I can say this book would appeal to people looking for a sort of romantic mystery with a huge amount of drama served on the side. I think the author has made a decent enough start and I wish her the best for her future writing endeavors.
