Book Description

Shortlisted for Best Books of 2012 by Africa Book Club
Confident, sassy, career girl, Lola meets cool, handsome, unpredictable hunk, Wole at a party in London. He pushes all the right buttons for her, and sparks fly. Wole is also irresistibly drawn to Lola, and before long, they get together in a wonderful romance. But Wole is not all that he seems, and he is holding back some dark secrets.
Things start to unravel when Wole's past begins to catch up with him and Lola has to decide if Wole is worth the trouble that threatens to overwhelm her. Find out in this captivating book if their love will overcome the trials of a murder investigation, an arrest, a meddling relative and a trip halfway across the world, or whether they both give up and go their separate ways.

4.0 out of 5 stars A very enjoyable debut novel 20 Dec. 2012
By bookshy
Format:Paperback
In her group of friends Lola, a Financial Analyst, is sassy and straight to the point, saying what she means (even if it's really blunt) before even thinking. Wole, who she first meets at her friend Titi's birthday party is a Project Manager, who on the surface seems like Mr.Right - good looking, good job, and a gentleman. But something is lurking beneath the surface, and Wole's past could pose a threat not only to his present, but to his and Lola's future.

Nothing Comes Close starts off as your usual 'boy-meets-girl', boy and girl have an instant connection, boy starts wooing girl, but that's where the simple formula ends. There are plots and twists in this story that I really wasn't expecting. Wole's past for instance threw me off. I mean I kind of guessed he had a secret past, because what's a leading man if he's not tall, dark, handsome and mysterious, right? I have to say I wasn't expecting to get the past that I did. And that is what I loved about Nothing Comes Close. Not only the writing (which is really accessible), and the characters (who were really relatable - I am sure each of us might knows a girl or two out there like Lola and her friends), it's also unpredictable. This made me want to read more. Honestly, I wanted to know more, but not only about what would happen next with Lola and Wole, but also the other characters (like Lola's friends whose lives we also get glimpses of).

4.0 out of 5 stars An entertaining, captivating read 11 Feb. 2013
Format:Paperback
Nothing Comes Close is a really good read. A typical boy meets girl story but told African style with twist, turns, unexpected deaths, secrets and lies and to top it all, a meddling relative. If you like your stories fast and furious with more than a little drama, Nothing Comes Close is the novel to read and with Valentine's Day coming up what more could you ask from a modern day love story.

2.0 out of 5 stars A good story 2 Nov. 2014
By Aramide
Format:Kindle Edition
A good story but too thin. I found that the story was originally started with a group of writers not just one and in the light of that knowledge could not help feeling terribly disappointed or maybe it was a case of "too many cooks". In terms of characters, they are well-drawn and believable. The story was good but could have been a lot more meaty by expanding on themes it just touched on. Certain aspects were just incredible, for instance, Dayo's marriage arrangement; Wale's background which sounded like it had been borrowed from another story. It could have been a great story but like i said, too thin.

5.0 out of 5 stars So Real, So Relateable too....... 29 Nov. 2012
Format:Paperback
Having read In my Dreams.....I could be more happier to know that Nothing Comes Close focuses on Lola, which some Nigerian Ladies can relate and identify with. Personally, I love the book and it takes you through tears, laughter and 'soo - true' moments of ladies going through life in the UK.

A refreshing book by Tolulope.....I can't wait for more to come. Heard her interview on Voice of Africa last weekend.

I will recommend this book to anyone who likes Terry MacMillian, Eric Jerome, Sista Souljah or Chiamanda Adichie

4.0 out of 5 stars worth the wait! 8 Nov. 2012
By Kemi
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I had been waiting for lola and wole's story to come out since reading their characters in the 'in my dreams it was simpler' series; and it was worth the wait! Its a lovely book and i think the writer succeeded in giving more insight into wole's character, thoughts and feelings. The storyline she wove around all the characters did not detract from the main love story between wole and lola and i would go as far as to say it added more depth to the book. The only thing i had an issue with is that she wasn't as descriptive with the passion between wole and lola; it was abit tame in that regard which is why i gave the book 4 stars. All in all i would recommend the book as a very good read especially for all us followers of the original series. If i'm not mistken there was an excerp at the end of the book about Temmy's character and i hope thats a sign that shes going to develop that into another feature length novel. Can't wait!!!!
