I’m already a fan of this author’s work but even though this is probably the first book I got from her, I’ve never read it. The Notting Hill/celebrity-ordinary person trope has never been a favourite of mine but I love how the author approached it in this novel.

The premise is that Bizzy is a successful hip-life artist looking to innovate and create a new type of Afro pop music known as Francohip- the only problem, he doesn’t speak French. Lamisi is a frustrated linguistics PhD student a

Damn I loved this book. The chemistry was easy and electric, the characters fantastic.

My only gripes are that the language felt stilted and too formal (personal preference I prefer prose and dialogue to be more relaxed and I could be too annoyed at that) and that SPOILERS DON'T READ THIS LINE UNLESS YOU HAVE READ THE BOOK (that Blaise stopped Deola from continuing was by threatening her with photos of her kink activities. I understand that they are both in a different country and both Muslim so

I first read about this book in Alyssa Cole’s newsletter, and when I had the chance to review a copy, I jumped on it. A super smart academic heroine and a rock star? Yes, please!

Lamisi’s stubbornness and willingness to tough it out has served her well getting through her PhD program, but maybe it’s not such a good thing when climbing a mountain! Though it doe

Lamisi Imoro, a level headed PhD student who speaks 5 different languages meets Blaise Zemar Ayoma aka Bizzy , a Ghanaian hiplife artist on a mountain climbing expedition. The sparks immediately fly but soft spoken, sweet Lamisi is set on guarding her heart. Blaise is man on a mission and good fortune brings them together again when he gets Lamisi to help him translate his lyrics into French in exchange for an interview for her thesis.
This is a beautiful , poignant love story of two people who

A mostly fun and enjoyable read. I adored Lamisi, I wanted to know all about her, her research, her past etc. I also liked Blaise a lot, for the way he treated people and his humility. Their relationship development was sweet and endearing and I liked the relationship too between Lamisi and Precious. I was less taken with some of the other side characters, and the drama sideplot with the evil ex, and that was probably the main negative thing for me.

I recently read an article about this publisher, which focuses on romance novels by African authors so obviously I had to jump on a few in support. I liked both of these characters and the value placed on academics and multilingual ability.

Love the 'opposites attract' trope? Well, you don't get more opposite than matching an academic to a hip-hop/hiplife artist. That's what happens when Lamisi meets Blaise in this charming and heartwarming contemporary romance novel. ...more

This is a sweet love story between two opposites. It is shows the beauty of Ghana. I have to visit Ghana. I love Lamisi. Her gift for picking up any language is amazing. I totally enjoyed reading this story.

I'm a Nana Prah fan and for good reason. Her writing allows me to indulge in beautiful love on the Motherland. Love and Hiplife did as well. Enjoyed it! ...more

I enjoyed Blaise and Lamaisi’s love story. Blaise a hip life musician wants to release a song in french and gets Lamaisi a PhD student who is fluent in five languages including french to help him with his translation.
Their romance takes up from there, until Deola an evil “ex” shows up.
A lovely and sweet story with some excitement thrown in by a jealous ex. A nice weekend read.

Nana Prah first discovered romance in a book from her eighth-grade summer reading list and has been obsessed with it ever since. Her fascination with love inspired her to write in her favorite genre where happily-ever-after is the rule.

She is a published author of contemporary, multicultural romances. Her books are sweet with a touch of spice. When she’s not writing she’s reading, over-indulging
