This the first book in the Sons of Ishmael series. The focus of book one is on Rasheed Danjuma as he works hard to care for his mother and siblings. Then we are introduced to food of West Africa by Ibiso; chef and entrepreneur of Bisso Bites. Both Rasheed and Ibiso have demons that prevent both from moving forward personally. On the surface it appears they want nothing more then their careers, but when you open up to one thing its an opportunity for other options to come in.
This sexy romance weaves forgiveness and love into a warm blanket rich with comfort. Nwankwor writes a well written story with several universal themes of family, forgiveness and love.
As mentioned, the setting for this story is Nigeria, specifically the capital city of Abuja. The bustling, energetic, northern city serves as the perfect backdrop for this story of the young restaurant/caterer entrepreneur, Ibiso and the established business consultant, Rasheed. As can be expected, the language and dialogue has an authentic foreign flavor that is sprinkled with African phrases and words throughout the novel. The family is a key element in this modern love story, and the author gives the reader insight into the strong family dynamic in the Nigerian culture. Rasheed is struggling to forgive his father who abandoned him, his mother and brothers. In addition, this subplot uncovers the Christianity vs. Muslim polarity that exists. Ibiso’s dilemma revolves around her Christian beliefs and applying them to mend her relationship with her estranged family, to deal with the deceit of a previous relationship, and to nurture her present relationship with Rasheed. Not only does Unoma Nwankwor pen the West African culture in vivid details, but she also weaves the universal themes of love and forgiveness into a well written story.
If you are looking for a different take on a contemporary romance set in a foreign country, this is the perfect story, and it has a great “happy ever after” ending. I recommend it, and I think you will enjoy it.

Good story about waiting on God's timing and showing forgiveness. Lots of romance and drama thrown in. A good proofreader would go a long way.Published 1 month ago by Msbmax
Well written. However it was unfair that racheed was the only one to make any significant changed. Ibiso used her Christianity as a shield for her own shortcoming.Published 2 months ago by Donald Fain
