​Tomilola ‘Coco’ Adeyemo’s DANGEROUS PASSION: An Aphrodisiac

Okay guys. . . before I start this review proper, I just wanna ask have you ever read a book that is this sexual and you say to yourself the author of this book better be getting this much in real life cos mehn. . . if not, I’d wanna ask her how she survived the torture of writing this e-Spartacus???? (like for reals mehn! But you know the funniest thing, I never saw Spartacus – don’t even know if it’s a movie or a series but I knew it has this sexual appeal that comes with it when people talk about it???). . . 
Moving on. . .
A very quick and sincere apology for the delay of this review. . . a lot is going on in the offline world and albeit the lot, girl’s gotta keep it all running and moving!?
Strutting real quick back to Dangerous Passion!

I don’t do romance (it’s always silly to me) but not since I started reading Tomi from the days of 360nobs to reading The Reunion last year. If you’re one of the people who still find it difficult to believe Tomi as a Writer is in a class of her own, then you need to get your ass ASAP to okadabooks.com and read this particular book in review.

Dangerous Passion is an orgasmic and suspense-filled narrative enclosed in secrets, mysteries, twist and turns, crime, passion, friendship, ego-defying attraction, lots of sex, betrayal, defiance, loss and most importantly love. It is a tale that could never have been written any better! This is where passion births love and love breaks secrets; it’s a story of inconvenient love. 

Oluwatonifise Garrn, a School Proprietress and an academic had not even the slightest idea that the night she swung into Eros Strip Club in company of her best friend, Tania was the night that was gonna mark a permanent swap in her life. That night, she was baptized into the journey that took her from being a widow who protected the memories of her late husband, Michael Garrn by keeping her vjayjay from external affairs as she met Olumide Okubanjo (Lummy), a covert billionaire, Pharmacist and strip club co-owner who drove her mind, soul and body insane. . . he didn’t stop at that, he set her emotions on fire as she started catching feelings
. . . but Lummy had more plans for her or at least was forced to have more plans for her but he could never bring himself to hurt the woman that had ended up becoming the air he breathed.
Oluwatonifise (Toni) Garrn didn’t realize how much insanity Lummy had brought her until she watched Tania’s brain scattered all over the floor of her mansion with one gunshot to her head leaving her to realize how much danger she was in and how it had everything to do with her late husband.
Who was Olumide Okubanjo? What was his mission? And how much of her late husband, Michael does she really know? What would she do with the feelings or better still, what would she do with the little Lummy in her tummy?
This is one hell of a read. The plot is lit! It is everything-everything?. Tomi took us on a suspense-filled drive with sexual-commercial breaks in between ??? and most importantly, this is one of the best crime meet romance novel I’ve ever read in a longtime. Personally, this is quite a commendable effort and introduction by Tomi – like this is another side of Tomi in writing! She’s gone all Shonda and I’m super-convinced with this book she’s beyond redemption ? ‘cause believe me, there is little you can predict in this book – this is Tomi in all her Shonda glory saying so many people gotta die in this book but damn, the story goes on and even got better with their deaths. . .
Tomi didn’t disappoint! She just kept getting better and better. Her writing style was super convenient and endearing. She murdered this book with the conversations, the dialogues and her descriptive power coupled with imagery was dope and trust me, I would have been surprised if I didn’t see some things pop up like the part where she wrote about the parents of a student sitting in front of Tania acting as if they’d rather be at a Small Doctor concert. . .??? and Tania was my favourite character! She reminded me of my friend, Doyin!
In short, Tomi remains that writer that is hard to fault even with a little typos (I think I noticed just two – sometimes we can’t help these things (typing errors).
Now what do I think overall?
I think Dangerous Passion is an orgasmic and suspense-filled narrative enclosed in secrets, mysteries, twists and turns, crime, passion, friendship, ego-defying attraction, lots of sex, betrayal, defiance, loss and most importantly love. It is a tale that could never have been written any better! This is where passion births love and love breaks secrets; it’s a story of inconvenient love. 
Rating: 10 (I promise you, you’ll read again and again and again. . . )
Outside the review: Don’t go and be touching yourself when you read this book (aunty, ko le to yen walahi??? . . before you go and be saying iz Tomi that caused it; she’s not the one o! and this book is 18+ abeg! Don’t come and be forming I love novels when you’re under 17 o! 
Once again, thank you Tomi for a ‘black-buster’ (in my Ghanian accent). . . nothing beats this for me this year!

  1. I enjoyed reading this review Ebukun. Maybe not a book I would choose to read but always good to try new reads and I’m always open to that. I like book reviews. Been revisiting Chimamanda Adicie recently. Been reading her for 5 years now. First saw her on C4 news in the UK and was will be impressed with her attitude so to a punt on one of her books, the rest is history you might say. So I might see if I can preview this on my e reader and give it a go.

    1. Thank You So Much Gavin! I’m so glad you loved this review and love reviews.. . and I’m a sucker for Chimamanda! From Purple Hibiscus, Half of A Yellow Sun, The Thing Around Your Neck to Americana. . . her works and that of Buchi Emecheta have inspired me greatly. Thanks for always stopping by!.

      1. Thank you Ebekun, that is another author to try. My friend lent me “How to spell Naija vol 2. Chinua Achebe signed it for her in London. Trying to find Vol 1 for her but no luck yet. Planning to read more of his work.

        1. Wow! You sure do have a thing for African Writers! An average Nigerian grew up reading Chinua Achebe of blessed memory! From Things Fall Apart, No Longer At Ease, Arrow of God, A Man of the People, Anthills of the Savannah, Girls at War to his last work before he died, ‘There was a Country’ but this is the first time I’m learning about ‘How to spell Naija’. Will go look for it! You really should read more of his work. He influenced Adichie greatly. Thanks for making my morning❤

          1. Thank you I will, you can probably deduce that I work with a lot of Nigerians in London, mostly Yoruba!! We do not have enough emphasis on African writers in school here but black history month in the UK is promoting African writers more. Yeah I need to read more Achebe.
