Closer than a brother by Nkem Ivara

Set in London, this is a fast-paced romance novella that grips you firmly from the first page, and refuses to let go even after you have turned the last. They met in their teens, and grew up together. Now Sami and Daye are both successful professionals in every area of their lives, except it seems, in matters of the heart. They confide in each other about everything except the one secret they refuse to share. Will the truth be revealed, and at what cost?

I enjoyed reading this story as it is a believable piece of writing, with authentic settings. The writer has a knack for drawing one into the lives of her characters, and  I found myself rooting for both the main ones, even as I willed the story not to come to an end.

It was with regret I read the last word, not because of the great ending, but because I simply wanted more.  I sincerely hope it won’t be the last we see of Sami and Daye, it was that gripping. Nkem is a talented writer who tantalizes one’s senses  even as she entertains, and I look forward to reading more from her in the future.

Blurb:

Daye Thompson didn’t know when it happened, but while playing the role of the-big-brother-she-never-had to beautiful Samantha Egbuson, he’d gone and fallen in love with her. Confessing his true feelings could signal the end of their lifetime friendship. Can he risk losing her altogether. She may have fallen for her best friend, Daye but can Sami trust him with her heart when she’s had such rotten luck with men she trusted in the past?

 

From this Friday, the 8th of March, the book will be available for purchase from Whispers Website, All Romance Ebooks, and Amazon. It will be also be available on Barnes and Noble at a date to be announced.
