Nothing has to change. We have great chemistry…

Misunderstandings are we common in romance novels. As an avid romance book lover, I look forward to reading tense moments between couples. Iโ€™m such a drama queen.

In this weekโ€™s #LAPLovenotes, Iโ€™m sharing a snippet of the spat between Onome and Nnamdi from Starting Over Again.

This occurred the morning after. How awkward! ๐Ÿ˜ฉ๐Ÿคฆ๐Ÿพโ€โ™€๏ธ๐Ÿ™‚


โ€œOnome, nothing has to change. We have great chemistry. Why canโ€™t we continue to explore that?โ€

โ€œBut itโ€™s against company policy for us to date.โ€

โ€œWe wonโ€™t be dating, weโ€™d just beโ€”โ€

โ€œOh,โ€ Onome turned away from him, holding tightly to the bed covers. โ€œSleeping together,โ€ she finished for him.

โ€œOnome, I didnโ€™t mean it that way,โ€ Nnamdi began, taking a step towards her. She held out her palm to stop him.

โ€œNo, I know exactly what you meant,โ€ Onome said, her tone surprisingly calm considering the anger boiling within her.

“I want to take care of you.”

In this weekโ€™s #LAPLovenotes, Iโ€™m sharing a snippet from Thornโ€™s and Roses.

โ€œThanks for forcing me to take today off,โ€ she murmured, a soft smile curving her lips. โ€œI enjoyed being with you today, the conversation, food, wine and the fact that I could forget all my worries.โ€

โ€œIโ€™m glad you enjoyed yourself. You should take more time off,โ€ Chuma replied, smiling back at her. 

She remained standing there, as if immobilised. With the wind scattering her hair over her face, her creamy skin glowing in the illumination provided by the setting sun and the flush on her face, she looked almost ethereal. 

Chuma stood beside her and inhaled deeply.

โ€œI want to take care of you,โ€ he said, his voice deep and low.

I hope you enjoyed it.

This woman distracted him…

In this weekโ€™s #LAPLovenotes, Iโ€™m sharing a snippet from The Senatorโ€™s Daughter.

Here, Rita summourned Nosa to the room where he held her captive, because she was feeling bored.


Their eyes locked for a few seconds and she inhaled sharply, which turned his gaze to her chest. Shit. No bra. He noticed, and he hated himself for it. For noticing three days in a row, how her perky breasts pressed against the soft fabric of whatever shirt she wore, their prominent sharp points poking through, demanding to be noticed. And he couldnโ€™t help that they got his attention.

The growing heaviness in his shorts snapped him back to reality, and his gaze jumped to her eyes which twinkled with amusement. The wench. She knows. Time for a bra. But how did one ask someone he wasnโ€™t intimate with about her bra size?

โ€œWhat are you watching?โ€

โ€œWh-what?โ€ His heart rate doubled. He was taken aback by her provocative question.

โ€œOn TV. What are you watching?โ€

โ€œOhโ€ฆOhโ€ฆ I thought you meantโ€ฆโ€ He ran his palms over his face and shook his head. 

This woman distracted him no end. โ€œThe news. I was watching the news,โ€ he finally responded.

He had her full attention now

In this weekโ€™s LAP Love Notes, Iโ€™m sharing a snippet from my work in progress .

The provisonal title is Love At First Sound. Itโ€™s a younger man-older woman romance, and I canโ€™t wait to share the drama that unfolds between Emem and Yomi

In this scene, Yomi finally musters the courage to ask his long-time crush out. Enjoy

Emem is a curvy woman with a closely cropped haircut. I love her already ๐Ÿ˜Š

He watched as she lifted a forkful of cake to her lips, his attention drawn to their succulent fullness. As though sensing his perusal, her gaze jumped to his and held.

His pulse began pounding in his ears. This is itโ€” the moment to ask her out. He had her full attention now. 

โ€œSashaโ€ฆโ€ he began.

โ€œEmem,โ€ she interjected. โ€œPlease call me Emem.โ€

โ€œEmem, I would like to take you out on a date, maybe dinner.โ€

Silence. The diameter of her eyes doubled, a soft gasp escaping her parted lips.

โ€œIโ€™m thirty-eight years old,โ€ she sputtered. 

He lifted a brow, puzzled. โ€œSo?โ€ 

โ€œWell โ€ฆ I am not โ€ฆ Iโ€™m way older than you.โ€
