This second chance romance as Dunni travels from America to Nigeria for a wedding for a character I loved in The Sweetest Remedy. I have a feeling this book is going to get me in the feels.
The second chance romance between a rich girl and a boy wasnt good enough. He’s now successful and she’s engaged to someone she doesn’t love but her parents approved. Sounds like a great set up to an emotional romallercoaster tm, tm, tm. Lol you get what I did there?
There was so much past and missed chances for their first chance that we slowly learned about as they reconnected in the present. That twist at the end was intense and unexpected. It made there reunion so much more poignant.
A story that reminds you that you are enough however you are born. Money can get you things but they are just things and they don’t make people better most of the time they make people worse.
❓ What’s the last book that pulled a big emotion out of you? I even think hating a character means they wrote them well.
🃏VI Cups – What makes you feel as happy as Ursula with King Triton’s trident? VI of Cups is an invitation to reconnect with the things that make life fun and leave you bubbling over with pure happiness. Sometimes, this tarot card can be a sign you’ll soon be reuniting with someone important from your past. Enjoy your memories!
Dunni hasn’t seen her high school boyfriend, Obinna, since she left Nigeria to attend college in America. Before their devastating separation, they vowed to find their way back to each other one day.
Twelve years later, and their vow is a thing of the past. Dunni works as a geneticist in Seattle and is engaged to a man she doesn’t love but one her parents approve of. Her future is laid out for her, and everything is going according to plan until she returns to Nigeria for a friend’s wedding and runs into Obinna. The shy, awkward boy she loved as a teenager is now a sophisticated, confident man. Things have changed, but there’s still an undeniable connection between them.
As they rediscover each other, their days filled with desire and passion, Dunni is reminded of the beautiful future she once planned with Obinna. But when devastating secrets are revealed and the reckless actions of their past bring new challenges, she’s left questioning everything, including if the love that consumed her as a teenager is still worth holding on to.
