Sisters, beware the 'Wasteman of Whitewell' . . .

As host of radio show Brown Sugar, Kiki Banjo's mission is to protect her listeners from heartbreak. Which puts Whitewell College's newest student, handsome 'player' Malakai Korede, at the top of her hitlist.

But when Kiki's dream summer internship in New York depends on finding a fresh angle for her radio show, she must make an unlikely bargain with Malakai himself - to put their simmering clashes aside to form a fake relationship, something sweet and spicy enough to win over the whole campus.

However, close proximity to the notorious heartbreaker brings everything Kiki thought she knew about her own heart into question. Why does throwing out her stringent romantic rulebook suddenly so tempting?

Will she find it in her to resist?

A fresh, utterly addictive rom-com from Sunday Times bestselling author Bola Babalola, Honey & Spice is full of delicious tension and romantic intrigue that will make you weak at the knees.

Kiki compares her feelings for Malakai as like swallowing a star. That's a bit how I felt after reading this messy but joyful book. * The Times *
This is a fast-paced commercial novel with a refreshing take on a well-worn concept. Someone should adapt it for the screen. * The Sunday Times *
Sparkling and self-assured... Babalola really captures the heady infatuation of first love. * The i Paper *
Charming and funny. * The Observer *
Bolu is one of the laugh-out-loud funniest and sharpest of writers working today. I fell in love with Kiki and the whole line-up of loveable characters. It's smart, sexy, energetic and sums up the realness of being attracted to someone you didn't necessarily expect. I'm excited for everyone to read this book. * Emma Gannon *
This book had me screaming from page one! Bolu understands desire better than anyone else and in Honey & Spice it prickles under every word. This book is so addictive it had me reading it even after I'd got off the bus. * Annie Lord *
