Is there any love comparable to the love of God? Peju probably felt there could be when she deliberately ignored all warnings from good friends and the Holy Spirit to stick to her teenage lover. Human love in it's purest form is still not a substitute or a match to God's love. "Once upon a first love" by Tope Omotosho
@topeomotoshowrites discusses many themes including forgiveness, discipline, godly counsel etc. but centered on Love and building a relationship with God.
It captures the story of Peju and other young people in their pursuit of God, their Faith, love life and life generally. "Once upon a first love" helps us to see that no one is beyond redemption both the backslidden and those who have never truly accepted Christ.
The turn of events in Oba's life proves this and even further shows that it is better to make the right decision later than to go on with the wrong one.
Furthermore, it reveals the reality that the Holy Spirit always speaks to believers and our responsibility of choosing whether to listen or not. In this novel we will see how easy it is to drift from our first love with or without being aware of it... This is a book for story lovers who love intriguing and captivating stories told with a literary prowess and filled with profound lessons. I loved reading this book and I'm looking forward to reading the sequel (I'll keep loving you). P.S: it's on okadabooks and it's affordable.

Here comes my review on this book "Once upon a First Love"
I'm not one to write stories like this except it blessed me and I want it to bless others too.
This book is a Christian Romance which is all encompassing. It opens your eyes to the love of Christ for you, it opens your eyes to the Kind of person God wants you to be, it opens your eyes to the Kind of person God wants you to be with .
Peju: she allowed the desires of her flesh overshadow that of her spirit...I learnt that one can never experience peace if you're not in line with God's will for your life
Eliana: my best character. A true lover of God. To her, communication with God in every area of her life was very paramount and because of this, her steps were divinely ordered.
Femi: a true representation of Christ.
This book will bless you, it's on okadabooks app @okadabooks You can also purchase hardcopy @rovingheights
God bless you @topeomotoshowrires for this amazing book...your relevance on earth is preserved❤❤❤

Review (3) of Once Upon a First Love
• • • • •
I admit that I have never read a book like this in my entire life - mind you I am am avid reader. Despite my extremely busy schedule, I "marathon" read the book because I couldn't put it down until I read the very last page !
The book is well written, prints legible and no "word fillers". I could relate with the story line and most importantly it felt like my love life with God was "x-rayed", a diagnosis made and treatment commenced.
Peju and Abduls' story left me in tears realising how I may have let down and hurt my first love (God) while chasing things that pass with this passing life.
Femi? I saw Jesus in that character - ever ready to stand by us and support us even while we hurt him with our choices and decisions. Now, I have a different and deeper understanding of "loving God"
When Tope told me "Honestly... can't take the credit. God gave me the storyline and words from beginning to end" I didn't understand, but now I do.
Tope, thank you for harkening to God's voice and obeying His prompt to go this route. You delivered this message well. Meeting you has been a blessing in more ways than one...God bless you Tope
The authors note....a direct message from God.
You need to read this book, you will be glad you did. I bought 10 copies and they're all gone! **contact the amazing author @topeomotoshowrites for your copies. Yes! Copies cos you need more than one, your friends will love you forever�

Review 4 of Once Upon a First Love
• • • • •
How does something so perfect and beautiful leave you broken and devastated? -
Eleven years after Peju and Abdul fell in love as teenagers, they reunite and pick up from where they stopped. Nothing was going to tear them apart this time. Or so they thought. -
OUFL is a story of love, friendship, betrayal, pain, disappointments and unexpected twists. It brings your imagination alive but most importantly, it educates. Reading this book was like looking into a mirror. I could find a piece of myself in almost all the characters and also got new insights on how to strengthen my relationships. I applied some of the things I learnt to a personal issue I've been avoiding for a while and it was very helpful. -
I read this book twice in one week. I kid you not. It's how amazing it is. And i intend to pick it up again sometime soon. OUFL is more than just a novel. It's a life manual. I'd encourage you to read it too.
It's available on @okadabooks, @rovingheights or contact the author @topeomotoshowrites
And please, don't stop at one copy. Buy for a friend or two. They will love you forever. ���

Once Upon A first Love...
It has to be a great read to make me pick between a sound Saturday night's sleep and reading it. Tope you have done an amazing job of throwing profound life's lessons into yet another enthralling tale.
Thank you for yanking off our religious spectacles and driving home the truth of how interested God is in matters of our heart.
Once Upon A First Love will dare you to look you in the eyes and ask yourself profound questions. If you'd take a deep breathe and answer them honestly, you are well on your way to a better you. .
In these last days God is truly raising a new breed of writers whose calling is to heal and shine the Light through their words. Thank you @topeomotoshowrites for saying yes to this call. And you were so right at saying we would need to buy copies ,not just a copy! To not share this would be a great disservice to this story.
PS. I miss the characters in the book�� and only a great story does that to you!

God first in everything we do in life. I pray Peju recognize the presents of God in her life. Thanks for sharing this wonderful and amazing Christian love story. Remember me in your next story.

�I'm not a Romance read fan, but if I should read romance I prefer Christian Romance novels (Karen Kingsbury, Francine Rivers, Lori Wick et al).
�One of the first Christian Romance by a Nigerian author I read was With These Shoes I thee Wed by @topeomotoshowrites. It was a soft read and I liked it.
So when I saw she had another book out I didn't hesitate to get it. And she didn't disappoint!
� Once upon a first love is such a beautiful story!
For me it wasn't just a novel. This is one of those books that a review wouldn't do justice to it. It doesn't just entertains, it delivers love filled messages.
I enjoyed every minute of it.... The characters, grammar, story line.
Real life, real people.
There is something about reading a book that leaves with a decision to be better than when you picked it up.
Well done mami @topeomotoshowrites. More grace to your pen. �
You still owe me my autograph! �

Hmmm...where do i start from�This book!!!! will do things to you emotionally that you don't even expect (well at least that's what it did for me) This book coming into my life at a time like this surely is not pure coincidence! Thank you! thank you!! thank you!!! @topeomotoshowrites for yielding to God's call to write this book.
My relationship with God moved to another level after reading this book.
This God ehn! ....if you want to know more of what I am talking about, please and please get a copy of this book. If it sincerely does not minister to you after reading it, I would refund your money and am serious. Thank you Tope ❤️❤️. I look forward to more books from you .

This is really an amazing read, the revelation, illumination and inspiration is captivating. I love the style of diction it makes me unaware of my surroundings lool, the whole love-paired characters and their illustrations are so thoughtful making it dynamic and vast in knowledge. This is one of my favorite Christian novel so far. I got to know about this through @mawunmi_27, thank you so much. The title alone is a very good reminder having read the book and going through great times it just stirs up the mind "FIRST LOVE IS JESUS" not man ❤
I just want once upon a first love volume 2!!! � , I didn't want to stop reading the book.... Really amazing �
@topeomotoshowrites You're a blessed writer!! More blessings and increase in wisdom and knowledge to do His will. More Grace Ma'am. ���
