    “OMG! I instantly fell in love with this book from the first page. I love Prince, and the influence he has on his friend group. We need more Princes in the world. Honestly I could say so much more about it, but do yourself a favor and just read it. I literally hugged this book when I finished it. So, so good!”

    —Melanie Knight, Books Inc., Berkeley, CA

    Love Radio, like all of the romances that inspired it, is full of heart, love (specifically black love), and the best sidekicks a friend/reader can ask for. I have not had this much fun reading a book in too long. You could not ask for a more wonderful cast of characters or a more note-perfect romance. Read this book immediately then watch all the movies that influenced it.”

    —Cliff Helm, Left Bank Books, St. Louis, MO


    “Can DJ Love, a teenage expert on love with his own radio show, take his own advice and build a real relationship with the girl of his dreams? Detroit and R&B classics mix with characters you’ll fall in love with but also want to yell at a little for not seeing what’s in front of them. Will Dani learn to trust? Will Prince learn to ask for help? It’s a RomCom with depth and so much fun!”

    —Susan Williams, M. Judson Booksellers, Greenville, SC
