    One Reply to “Nothing Comes Close”

    1. Nothing Comes Close is the love story of Lola – the most outspoken and independent friend in a group of five girlfriends. The book touches on topics such as romance, loyalty, grief, and tolerance/acceptance of each other among friends who don’t necessarily see eye-to-eye on certain issues, for example, having relationships with a married man; or say, cheating on a boyfriend with an ex boyfriend. The highlight for me, however, was the story of Wole’s past. Wole is the male protagonist in th [...]

    2. In her group of friends Lola, a Financial Analyst, is sassy and straight to the point, saying what she means (even if it's really blunt) before even thinking. Wole, who she first meets at her friend Titi's birthday party is a Project Manager, who on the surface seems like Mr.Right - good looking, good job, and a gentleman. But something is lurking beneath the surface, and Wole's past could pose a threat not only to his present, but to his and Lola's future. Nothing Comes Close starts off as your [...]

    3. When drama stalks the man you love, it is important to evaluate what you wanthim or a drama-less life. Beautiful, sassy and independent Lola had to make that decision about her relationship with handsome and mysterious Wole in Tolulope Popoola's debut novel, Nothing Comes Close. For a romance novel, the twist and suspense embedded in the pages made it all the more delightful.Last year, I had the honors of critiquing the manuscript. I was super excited to receive the published book in the mail ea [...]

    4. For the full review, visit: booksundertheneemtree What I liked about this book? And why I loved it:-FACT#1: I haven’t read a lot of love stories involving African characters that are this…innocent. Let me explain. There is no issue of race, identity or politics in this novel. And I will be forever grateful for that. Those are important issues but I think sometimes we need a break from the hard issues, don’t you?-FACT#2: I really identify a lot with Lola’s character. I mean her whole life [...]

    5. 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. 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 sti [...]

    6. 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 [...]

    7. 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 an [...]

    8. 1.5 starsI 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 [...]

    9. Well written, descriptive and colorful writing from this author about love and it's unpredictable journey. It ended exactly the way I wanted but feared with all the twists and turns that the author would have chosen a different ending. It does pay to follow your heart and believe in what you know is true especially in the misguided attempts of friends and family to protect you. Great job!

    10. Not to badI do love happy endings and that's just what this book offered. It was simple and somewhat predictable read, but not bad. There were a few aspects that didn't really make sense to me, like what happened to Maureen. It brought nothing of value to the story and if you removed it, the story would move right along without it. The entire circumstances just made no sense, including what Wole did. Wolfe's lockup didn't either, you can't just lock people up without evidenceat should not have g [...]

    11. I really wanted to love this book. I'm passionate about Nigerian writers and I'm often tickled pink when I find copies of books I want to read in digital print. There were too many distracting subplots and story lines which distracted from building up the background story on the characters. For example wole's back ground story on how he met his foster parents became checkpoint Charlie and met Eloka was rushed in a few pages. We didn't get enough time to truly see the chemistry develop between Wo [...]

    12. The fact the action is always renewed in this book took my attention. I swear what happened to the girl who have been poisoned make me so sad that I spend and entire day to mourn with them. Just to say how the writer make you felt like you were in the novel to. She push you into. After the end of this book, i felt like a mess didn't know what to do with my self because i wanted more more more love stories and that's how i hear taking all good mark of books here .
