The answer will either cause Azere to be audacious and fight for her happiness or continue as the compliant daughter The cover art is absolutely beautiful and drew me right in I really loved this book and how it depicted the struggle that many immigrants face when their families force them to choose between their native culture and the present dominating culture I really love how Azere was able to find her voice and go after what she wanted I would recommend this book to there. This is a promising debut and I’m really happy to have a chance to read it because learningabout different cultures, their traditions, approaches, perspectives turned me into a excited child who is happy to discover new, colorful worlds and appreciates the knowledge is power Most of our ancestors have migrated from other countries and sometimes respecting your ancestors’ wishes and protecting your cultural identity might be one of the most challenging thing to achieve because when you adjust to your new environment, your efforts may be resulted with cultural degeneration There are two risky solutions of this adaptation problem: you may lose the native identity completely and forget where you come from or you turned into someone without identity because you cannot adjust to both of the cultures You’re just stuck in the middle of them This book gave impressive and educational approach to this sensitive topic: The plot idea was also emotional, thought provoking and moving about young Nigerian woman, Azere wants to obey dying father’s last wish: she will preserve her cultural identity and marry with a Nigerian man But when her one night stand with a white man turned into a intimate, meaningful relationship, she is stuck in a big dilemma: should she do what she’s told and respect her family’s wishes to marry with a man from her own culture or should she listen to her heart and choose her own path of happiness with Rafael It was entertaining, enjoyable romcom and both protagonists were thankfully likable Their chemistry was hot, sizzling Only the last quarter of the book a little disappointed me with regular cliches about hero and his big secret which ruined the lovers’ bright future kind of angsty parts I found it a little unnecessary But at least conclusion of couple’s lives story saved the day Because of the exaggerated angst parts I cut one of my stars So I’m giving four identity, multicultural interest, powerful, promising, creative four stars! I’m looking forward to read new works of the author.Special thanks to NetGalley and Berkley Publishing for sharing this moving ARC with me in exchange my honest opinions and introducing me a brilliant debut author. 2.5 stars Trigger warning for surprise pregnancy, loss of a child, loss of a loved one, and traumatic childbirth I want to start out with saying I was so excited to read this book The cover is gorgeous and this book sounded so good with the main character falling for a man that was not Nigerian when she promised her deceased father she would marry a Nigerian man Unfortunately, when I started this book, I was really not enjoying the writing style The dialogue felt very forced and cliche and there were FAR too many movie references Rom coms are our main character's thing, but she goes on to reference at least ten movies and follow that reference up with an entire paragraph summarizing the movie or scene she was reminded of This got to be too much, and, while I love movies and knew every single movie she referenced, I just didn't care and it took me out of the story each time On to the actual plot This book deals with surprise pregnancy, which is my least favorite trope While this is definitely a me problem, I wish the synopsis mentioned this because I wouldn't have even picked the book up I honestly would have DNFd this book at that point if I weren't reading this for review There is a love triangle between Azere and two guys, a Nigerian guy she has a past with that her mother picked and this other guy she had a onenight stand with I didn't really feel any of the connection or past to the guy she had a history with and I didn't feel the chemistry that much with the other guy she had hooked up with None of the romance really did it for me It also felt like a lot started in this book and then just stopped or wasn't fleshed out enough I feel like we still don't know these characters, who they are, or what they like other than the main conflict of the story It was just missing that reallife authenticity to the characters I will say, I did appreciate the important discussion about dating someone that is not of your same ethnicity and how cultures can or cannot come together in a relationship Azere has a lot of guilt over not staying completely loyal to her Nigerian roots and disappointing her family's expectations However, the story itself, the writing, and the romance just did not mesh with me. BRO I LITERALLY CANNOT WAIT TO READ THIS?!?! 🇳🇬
