Review - Entwined Destiny by Nana Prah
Time is ticking away for Adjoa Twum. She has until the end of the year to find a guy, fall in love, and marry. Or else, her father will disinherit her from the family business.
Adjoa hasn’t had success with the dating game. No man meets her expectations. Esi, her cousin, suggests a fake relationship with Adjoa’s best friend, Kwame Opoku, to pacify her relentless father.
Kwame thinks Adjoa’s request is ridiculous. Posing as her boyfriend might get tricky, but he can’t say no to those beautiful eyes. Once the falsified relationship begins, things heat up. He discovers deep feelings for her, feelings that might lose Adjoa and her friendship.
Should they take the chance and up it to the next level?
Having read the first two books in the series, I was familiar with some of the characters in this book and this one didn't disappoint and kept me as enthralled as before.
What I love about this series is the setting in Ghana which takes us into a different culture to what we're used to in a romance novel. I love learning about another African culture and the writer presents it in an interesting and relatable way.
The romance was touching and also unique. I like that the twists and turns didn't follow a predictable plot but surprised me, yet they made sense as the characters remained true to themselves and didn't do things just because it was expected of them in a romance. Chemistry and love scenes were compelling.
It was an enjoyable, humorous, touching, romantic friends-to-lovers romance. Well written, authentic and unique. Great characters and setting.
