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 above. The authors did not try to present a “respectable” (for lack of a better description) romance where the guy and the girl deal with some personal challenges that get in the way of their relationship. This story is on some real level ish that some of y’all just won’t like, so don’t say I didn’t warn you. The basis of this narrative is how do you separate what you feel in your heart from what you know is the right thing to do? And the answer is, you always can’t or don’t even want to. The heart is that funny organ ya know, that has a mind of its own. It doesn’t always make the right choices, but whatever it compels you to do, comes from a place of genuine emotion.
So what am I really saying here? Basically that love is complicated, and we can’t control how we feel, even when we’re committed to other people. I’m always of the belief that you cannot let an outsider penetrate your “bond” with someone if there weren’t already cracks in that relationship to begin with. Same Page is the story of how two people who have no damn business being together cannot deny the intense attraction and connection they feel for one another. It transcends the physical, and when it becomes more than sex, you are screwed (no pun intended).Read more ›
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 self respecting woman would taze rather than date, virginity worshipping, failing the Bechtel test on a huge scale, and even more unforgivable, the utter lack of diverse characters, I've literally given this genre the old heave-ho.
So imagine my shock when the twin sister duo of G.L. Tomas sent me an unproofed copy of their latest work. I was prepared not to like it just because it was NA, but ended up reading the entire thing in a day. Why? Because it's messy and it's real and more importantly, the cast of characters are DIVERSE. Say what you will, but we're headed into 2016 and it is unacceptable that the romance genre as a whole isn't doing a better job of inclusion.
Even better the heroine of the story, Naima, is a dark skinned, natural haired young woman from Nigeria. Now, those who follow my reviews on Amazon and on Goodreads know that I am unapologetic about calling out colorism fail, especially in my beloved Interracial Romance genre. In fact, this year has been rather sparse in regards to IR because I am way past done with the seeming preference for light skin/long straight hair courtesy of a Native American or Caucasian ancestor/and green eyes Black heroine, as if a man of another race could never fall in love with a beautiful dark woman.Read more ›
Great pacing and great characterization.
I hated the ending, so only four stars. But it was well worth the read.
Why I liked it:
1. Naima. Strong and smart without being too hard or unrelatable.
2. Timothy. Sexy as h3l!. Is it weird that I smiled when I was reading his chapters?
3. These authors are young and they have their own "voice" that they write in. Their prose is not bronte like, but nor is it L.A. Banks its something all their own and while at first I found it off putting I got used to it and started to look forward to what the characters said next. I'm older so I felt young reading it if that makes sense.
At times I felt that the book was a little flat and while I enjoyed the prose, not everyone else will. Their are also some grammatical issues, but nothing awful or worrisome.
This is a good read that fans of the romance genre will enjoy. I know I did
I'm just sayin:
Timothy is really hot! Also, I loved some of the twists in this book, I was really surprised where the author took the Naimia and my baby Tim.
