Summary

From the Sunday Times bestselling author Bolu Babalola comes the romantic comedy we've all be waiting for.

The sharp-tongued (and secretly soft-hearted) Kiki Banjo is an expert in relationship-evasion, and likes to keep her feelings close to her chest. As the host of the popular student radio show, Brown Sugar, it is her mission to make sure the women who make up the Afro-Caribbean Society at Whitewell University also do not fall into the mess of 'situationships', players and heartbreak.  

But when Kiki meets the distressingly handsome and charming newcomer Malakai Korede—who she has publicly denounced as 'The Wasteman of Whitewell'—her defences are weakened and her heart is compromised. A clash embroils them in a fake relationship to salvage both their reputations and save their futures, and soon she finds herself in danger of falling for the very man she warned her girls about. 

A funny and sparkling debut, Honey & Spice is full of delicious tension and romantic intrigue that will make you weak at the knees.

Simply beautiful

Bolu Babalola’s words are a gift to this world. The complex characters, the hilarious dialogues, the beautiful romance all had me giggling and aww-ing at the same time. The narrator was excellent! Her emotive performance really brought to light the dynamics between different characters. I couldn’t put my book/phone down! Please keep writing Bolu, the world needs your books (especially the sequel to Honey & Spice!!)!

Well written story

Loved the story telling. The narration traps you in the story and that makes the character more vibrant almost as if you are right there with them.

Really fabulous read

It was quite entertaining, descriptive and addictive. Reminded me of my uni days. I wish I was as smart as Kiki at that time but also I like that there was room for errors and mistakes that we all have made on that part. So brilliant, would definitely recommend.

Wasn’t sure to begin with but glad I stuck with it

I wasn’t sure whether or not to continue with this book as I didn’t enjoy the initial chapters. I though the main character was very immature and reminded me of a high school bully I once encountered. However, I stuck with it and was pleased I did. This was a great, rich story, I started to love the main character and I loved seeing her grow and develop. The performance was excellent too. Would recommend.

Honey and spice all the way through

I really enjoyed this story - it was a sweet read with the right amount of spice peppered throughout. Just one question…where can I get my very own Malakai Korede?!

Excellent

Great storytelling. Well constructed characters and an Austin-like tangle of love, social status and influence.
