What happens when chemistry gets complicated?

New to Providence, RI, Naima Adewunmi had every intention of fulfilling everything she left her New York borough for, finishing up her Bachelor's degree and finding a job while doing it.

She wasn't supposed to fall for Timothy Ferreiro, a smooth, slick talking, sexy specimen of a man, messy bedhead hair included, who also happens

The FountainPenDiva, Old school geek chick and lover of teddy bears
Just a heads-up: I received a copy of this book in exchange for a typically blunt Fountain Pen Diva review. With that said, on with the show, lol.

I have not been a fan of the New Adult genre. To be perfectly blunt, outside of a few notable exceptions, the entire genre has been a complete and utter waste of trees. If anything, it comes off as having turned the clock back on feminism at least twenty years. Between the slut shaming, near glorification of rape culture, so-called "bad boys" who any s

Ok, here we go!

This is the first book (and definitely not the last) that I’ve read from authors (yes, authors. Twins at that!) G.L. Tomas. I am feeling their flow! The dialogue, the language (A lot of it is AAVE or African American Vernacular English), the setting, the rocky, complicated relationship between Timothy and Naima…This is young love at its finest!

One thing I must say that sets this book apart from most of the new adult romances that I’ve read, is all of the things that I’ve mentioned

****4 STARS**** (this is not a standalone)

I'm so happy/mad at myself for enjoying Same Page because there is cheating. To me cheating does not = great romance book. But our main character was darn lovable.

F**k my life! I'm a horrible person.

So what happens when you put two people who are highly attracted to each other in the same place day in and day out?....In this case, they end up hooking up!

The chemistry was amazing. Both main characters were beautiful. Naima is an absolutely stunning, beau

Naima is my girl and Timothy is my dude. I loved them! The cheating though...Ugh! And yeah, I knew going in that there will be cheating involved. But Timbo, you could have done some spring cleaning (out with the past) before blissfully and thoroughly messing your crib up with your new love. And Naima, you could have order Tim to come correct: go fix his business and then come back to you. But then again: that would have been a total other read and maybe not that entertaining.

Okay so here's the deal. I hate cheating. I think it's gross and ridiculous and SO unnecessary and yeah, I definitely don't want to read about it in my little escape from reality, but here I am...

So you know those people that say things like, "violence solves nothing, guys!" But then they're the first one to whip out their phone and record a fight happening in front of them? Yeah, that's me with this book.

It doesn't help that I loved all the characters (Tiiiiiiim. I love Tim. That's my bro. ) a

Fast paced NA

I hate how much I loved Timothy. Both characters were well fleshed out, but Tim was my favorite.

Great pacing and great characterization.

I hated the ending, so only four stars. But it was well worth the read.

Totally rachet. Everyone, of all ages, races, cultures, educational levels and genders in this book talks like they're auditioning for Straight Outta Compton. The authors' prose is rachet; the multitude of spelling errors etc is insane. The side-chick story line is rachet. The situations, characters and behaviour all raché

But, for what it is - an authentic look into another lifestyle and age - it's engrossing. And since it's a Kindle Unlimited, I may, in the right state of tolerance, read the se

I really loved Naima and Timothy. They are real people to me. Multidimensional. They were well developed characters with depth, and I loved the dialogue and how modern this is. I laughed on several parts. The ending would have killed me if I didn't know this was a cliffhanger already. What can I say?! I'm ready for more. I hope book 2 isn't a very long wait.....Good job G.L. Thomas.

3.5 Stars.
This was a pretty good story. I couldn't get into this book until the 40-45% mark. Mainly because of the "friends" aspect. It was clear they both wanted to be more than friends from the beginning. I am looking forward to reading the next book to see how their story ends.

Kind of a young read. Or a young writer--I can't tell. But it was funny to read about these kids just train-wrecking their way through their lives.
3.5... I'm not a fan of cheating, however I did try to keep an open mind with this book.

While Same Page is another duology by the duo, it differs from the F*THS NA duology as this book felt more like an ensemble piece with the supporting Symposium co-workers, which drew the main characters, Tim and Naima, closer together as the book went on.

In fact, a part of me wanted there to be a separate chapter or spin-off story focusing just on the workers of the Symposium because they were all too crazy-funny not to have their own spotlight.

I absolutely loved this book by the Twinjas as this sister duo likes to call themselves. It was a mix of urban realness. Naima and Timothy getting together wasn’t without complications. One being he had someone and it was a long distance relationship. What I know about long distance relationships is that communication is key as it is in any relationship but even more essential when you don’t have that day to day communication with the one you love.

The Goodreads group Read It & Reap provided a copy of the ePub in exchange for an honest review.

Same Page by G. L. Tomas is a New Adult Romance. This novel visually reflects a diverse society.

Naima is immediately drawn to Timothy when she meets him at her job interview. Same Page explores a complicated relationship as Timothy has a long distance girlfriend. Naima and Timothy also work together—he is her boss. Their chemistry is undeniable and perhaps unstoppable.

Both characters are likeable

The chemistry and connection between Timothy and Naima was just right. It wasn't forced or rushed which I love! I loved how they brought out different sides of each other and pushed each other as well. Having a woman of color as the lead was so cool and she's from Staten Island like myself. The authors didn't lie there is nothing to do on this island! This story does have cheating but if you can get pass the cheating, you will definitely be in for a special treat!

Yea I got this book as an ARC in exchange for an honest review. I'm sorry, I couldn't get into this book. I tried to finish it for a proper review but I just couldn't. I hated the story and the characters. The female lead, meh she was annoying at best. Hated Timothy because I do not like books about cheating. You have a long distance relationship already. Break up with the current gf if you intend to kiss Naima for a second time. I don't care how much the authors try to sugar coat this "

It's Complicated.

These two were so not on the same page, but things tend to get complicated in love. I wasn't sure that I would like this, because well, cheating, but the story is well written and the characters were likeable and three-dimensional, so this book is certainly worth the read! I can't wait for the sequel! Keep up the good job guys!

Really, really liked it! Lots of steam and drama! Definitely approaches strong subjects that won't be of the liking of many readers such a as affairs, but Tim and Naima's relationship is sweet, cute and hot. The book is a little slow in the beginning, but totally appreciate that the author developed their relationship starting from the moment they meet at work all through their complicated love affair.

I don't usually give one stars but this book was just... not for me. The characters were so dull, the plot did nothing for me and to top it all off, The main character Timothy had a gf yet was over here messing around with Naima, and it wasn't even done in a way where I was like okay, fine i can see why he's doing this. There wasn't. The only thing was probably an "issue" and would cause him to cheat was that his girlfriend lived miles away... but he claimed he loved her, he claimed that his gf ...more

Review from Jeannie Zelos book reviews

Genre:  Romance, 
So, I knew from the description there was cheating here – I don’t like that, but usually in novels its done in such a way that I’ve some sympathy, its kind of wrong but understandable but here? Ugh! No. It was “I know you’ve got a girlfriend but...” - “ I know we shouldn’t be doing this..”- “ its so wrong” - as they’re ripping each others clothes off. ( roll eyes!)

I was provided a free copy through the Goodreads 'Read It and Reap' group for an honest review.

Naima and Tim have an unconventional relationship that they struggle to define. Friends with benefits seems to be the best label. Under normal circumstances it could be a good arrangement. But when you add in that Tim loves someone else (serious GF- long distance) and that Tim & Naima are quickly falling for each other, it gets complicated.

I was in culture shock for the first 1/3 of the book. Alt

Same Page is cute. It’s a quick read, and I actually think there were a couple of subplots that could have been more developed–like Naima’s relationship with her parents (why was she always deleting texts from her mom?), what she was doing in school or outside of work (what kinds of classes was she taking, how was she doing during each semester?) I left me wanting to understand more of Naima. Further, there was a hint of connection betwe
Disclaimer : got an ARC of this book. Here is my review.

This was an ok read. I liked Naima, she was an interesting lead character, I liked the fact she was Nigerian American and that we got to read about her interacting with her family. I wish there and been more moments like that in the book, especially with her room mate who started out like some one who she could be close and hang out with more, but that ended up popping up just once after the initial introduction and that was otherwise barel

Naima is relocating from the big city NYC to a smaller town for school and to find a job. She finds a job working in a Coffee shop slash book store, which works great for her since she loves books. Timothy has a girlfriend but he notices the new girl that they all call Staten Island, a place of work where every employee has a nickname and isnt called by their real name.

What I enjoyed most about Same Page is watching all the close friendships and fun they each have at work, seeing that Timothy i

Naima is new to Providence, but loving the town and her new job. She’s trying not to love her new boss, but can’t help herself. She knows he’s attached, but is his long distance relationship enough to talk herself out of him?

The Same Page is a new urban romance novel that chronicles the meeting and initial attraction of Naima and Timothy. It alternates first person narration between them, and honestly I liked it. I am usually very critical of first person narration, as it’s hard to pull off, bu

After seeing the cover and reading the premise, I knew I was going to enjoy this short read. I was wrong. I did not like the characters. I did not like the story. It was boring at times and seems to be drawn out. And the issues in the book were just a little much to see into. I mean who has a long distance relationship where they only see each other a couple of times a year? I know people in the military do this but thats not som

I receive this book from " Shut up & read" group in exchange for my opinion.

TBH, I'm not a fan in cheating scenes. So which means that I shouldn't read this book at all. But.... I'm glad to pick this book up. This is not the familiar cheating scenes where the H have mistresses around and leave the wife behind. Or have multiple mistresses etc. This one is more towards the society where you and I are. Working environment. Co workers falling in love with each other is not rare case. Especially
