I am ashamed to say that this book has been on my TBR for a long time especially when I got an autographed copy from the author himself. In the spirit of Valentine’s day, I had a desire to read a romantic story this month and this book was recommended to me by @bookpeddlerng so I decided to finally pick it up and read. It took me a while to get into the story but when I eventually did, I couldn’t stop. Marylyn Zhasa and her life on campus in a Nigerian University is nostalgic as it brings back fond memories of my days in University, living on campus, attending lectures, parties and all what not. Marylyn is a confident and intelligent seventeen year old who thinks she has her life all planned out but is tossed into a complicated series of events when she meets the handsome and popular Dan or D-Man. Lie To Me, Dan is a story about young love, friendship, mean lecturers, cultism in Nigerian Universities and the dangers that come with it. It was a well written piece of work, a quick read with pockets of suspense in the right places and appropriate for teenagers and young adults. My teenage daughter is now reading this book….
