This is an interesting romantic debut from a Nigerian Canadian author Being Nigerian myself and a lover of Nigerian romance this seemed like it would be an excellent match for me I ve read this with mixed emotions the summary of which is that on the balance of things I think it s alright and I appreciate the story the author wanted to tell and really respected the own voices nature of that story about culture and love and assimilation and the fear of losing your heritage and disappointing your generationsStarting with the positives this story is undoubtedly own voices the author captured the nuances of a common Nigerian experience especially for Nigerian immigrants growing up in the disapora but this experience is even applicable locally I read book with similar themes recently that was very well written but that WASN T own voices and reading this book I can tell that the author understands this cultural experience and expectation because of her sympathy with Azere I love that the author approached this theme and the relationship between Nigerian mothers and daughters which can be filled with such sacrificial care but also fraught with manipulation and misunderstanding and pressure I love the moment in the book where Azere and her mother talk about conditional love because I feel like this is such an important theme in Nigerian parent child relationships This book made me think about the inherent societal pressures there are on parents for their children to conform to inherited culture and not bring shame to the family and how that pressure is inherited by kids to know that the weight of their parents community s and ancestor s expectations are on them I definitely related to Azere s desire to suppress things and pretend that everything was fine I think this was strongest in the selected theme and for the most part the plotWhere this struggled a bit for me was in the execution The protagonists didn t feel full bodied to me Azere came across as immature because we never really got to know her and what she wanted as a character and who she really was outside of being her mother s daughter Rafael s reluctant lover Efe s sister Christina s friend I didn t know what her dreams were what she wanted from life whether she liked her job how she felt about her society etc What little we saw of what kind of friend and sister she was didn t really sell her as a character to root for We didn t know her as a human outside the major conflict of this novel Rafael was also to me a bit of a shell we didn t know much about him either except that he was in love with Azere at first sight but not uite why Even when he made his big declaration at the disastrous family dinner it seemed out of left field as cute and delightfully awwwwww some as it was it felt a little hollow because we didn t know him as a character what does he like outside of Azere who is he as a person what did he feel about being in a multicultural relationship what was his reaction to the pushback from Azere s family I felt the character development was a little surface y And I think as a reader knowing the character s better would have made this a stronger read than it was As it was I still enjoyed reading this story I just think this aspect could have been strongerI freuently found the way the story was revealed a little clunky The dialogue to me wasn t always realistic and the plot felt a little jumpy and not seamless and I think part of this might be teething issues with this being the author s first book and also with the author writing a romance that she wanted to appeal to both own voices readers and a mass foreign audience I wish the author hadn t always felt the need to explain everything but had just let the book rest on what she wrote for example every element of Nigerian culture or sayings explained in great detail every reference to a Nigerian cultural icon like Tiwa Savage Patience Ozokwor Simi etc explained in great detail rom com movie references being given mini analysesrecaps it just felt a little too much I ve read many books even romances with cultural references that I didn t know and if I was interested I Googled to learn and if I wasn t interested I kept it moving The needing to glossarize every reference often pulled me out of the plot and it skewed this book for me into not really being for readers with romantically underrepresented cultural experiences but a book for Westerners to have an insight into an aspect of Nigerian culture The other issue I experienced with this is something I sometimes see in interracial romances where in order to justify the relationship with the white character the ethnic protagonist must always somehow drag every relationship they ve had with dating someone from their culture It s like well I ve tried dating people from my culturerace and they were toxic messes and so that justifies me dating this person from a different race These sorts of implied or overt narratives really irk me After all is it because of their race that this new love interest is goodrespectfulkind or is it because they are who they are This book portrayed dateable Nigerian men in a certain light and whilst I don t disagree that there s a concerning proliferation of Nigerian f boys I think this aspect of the book was a little clunkily expressed and fell a bit into that trap interracial romances sometimes do All in all I think this is a good story a very recognizable story to many people who struggle to find a balance and hold on to their culture and heritage in the middle of that space between the inevitability of cultural assimilation and the fear of loss and separation from heritage that breeds cultural fundamentalism I appreciate the author trying to bring it into mainstream romance I appreciate her for showing that love can win and culture doesn t have to be sacrificed The execution wasn t my favourite but this was a debut and the author wrote a book that was interesting enough that I didn t put it down till I finished once I started Many thanks to Berkley Publishing for gifting me this free book
