    I couldn’t drop this book till I finished this book.

    The suspense.
    The conversation.
    The flow.
    The emotions.

    Everything is top notch and I recommend this over and over again.

    PS. Is there a sequel?

    • Mabel

      Thank you, Penny! Glad you enjoyed the book. Yes, there is a possibility of a sequel.

    Is there something beyond a 5 star?

    This is the 4th time I’ll be reading this and it doesn’t even get boring.

    When you buy the book, you’ll understand why it’s my 4th time.

    Great job Mabel!

    Dear Mabel,

    You made my mind travel to realities I never believed I had lived.

    You helped me forgive those that actually hurt me and also move on.

    This got me really emotional.

    Thank you for a job well done

    This book looked like my life’s story was shared. Although I find it difficult to believe that I’ll ever find love.

    I’m the Lucia here.

    Great job ma’am

    I also move the motion for a sequel!

    • Mabel

      Awww. I believe you’ll find love, Thema. I’m certain a lot of ladies can relate to Lucia’s story. A sequel is it then!

    Well, the title got me hooked.

    I hope the last time I’ll love will be the last time I’ll love.

    Maam I got so emotional reading this work.

    You did a great job.

    Do you have other books i can go through?

    I love your practicality and resonance with real life dealings on this…

    Also, we want a sequel!

    • Mabel

      Thank you for your kind words, Adadiora. Yes, I’m considering a sequel.
      Yes, there are other books. They’ll be uploaded very soon.

    This book ohh! I can’t seem to find the words.
    The last time we loved.
    I love everything about this book. The fact that it is realistic, relatable, intelligently written, and still really beautiful. I could picture everything I read. Like I was seeing a movie.

    Another thing I particularly love is how the book was used to subtly address the different ignorance, mindset and behavior problems plaguing people in our beloved country Nigeria. Which have made the country very messy.
    From trusting their lives to inexperienced midwives during childbirth, to men who complain about having only female children, men who stop their wives from working, ignorance in the areas of family planning, domestic violence, stigma on single mothers, corruption in the country, and so many others.
    These issues were addressed in The Last Time We Loved.

    Issues of faith too. Tragic events that happen to believers, the constant love and goodness of God.

    I could go on. But I want you to purchase this book and enjoy it like I did. Everyone needs a copy.
    If you’re a Christian in Nigeria and you love a good Christian romance, don’t sleep on this.

    There’s a reason I’ve been following Mrs Olubunmi Mabel for a few years now since I found her. It’s because of her ability to capture the minds and attention of people and keep it glued to her article, or story. The fact that she has amazing values which I align with was a beautiful icing on the cake.
    This is just the beginning. You haven’t scratched the surface yet. I look forward to so many more of this from you.

    “The Last Time We Loved”

    What a fitting title for a beautiful work of fiction.

    Engaging storyline? Check.
    Vivid descriptions? Check.
    Humour? Check.
    Suspense? Check.
    Well developed characters? Check, check!

    I especially love that the characters are human and imperfect, yet, there are lessons artfully woven to be learned from their lives, their mistakes and triumphs.

    In the beginning, Tolu is understandably upset due to her dashed expectations.
    But at the end, there is a gentle reminder from the author that genuine repentance and restitution could bring forgiveness and redemption; and then a reaffirmation that healing is possible for the hurt.

    Thank you, Mabel!
