Anna Tang doesn’t date Asian guys. Her own Chinese family is bad enough, and she's not looking to double the trouble. Besides, she's busy chasing her dream of becoming a music journalist, and she's going to march towards it single-mindedly—and single, if need be.
But when she meets a handsome stranger on a flight to a wedding, she's charmed. Intrigued. Seduced.
Too bad he’s Asian, and not her type.
Ian Gao has a great tech job and rock-hard abs from years of climbing. His parents hope he’ll settle down soon, but he’s drawn to the fierce and lovely Anna, who doesn’t plan on getting married. Ever.
But the more time they spend together, the more it feels like coming home. Does Ian have what it takes to make her to stay? Or are the walls around her heart too hard to climb?
I loved it
One of my favs
This was a refreshing book that I enjoyed. At first I thought it would be total assimilation but I was pleased to hear Asian culture throughout the book. I also loved that it wasn’t apologetic in a couple of parts that might make some cringe, and I could appreciate that. (One sex scene and one drug scene) I didn’t feel enticed to try it by the words that were said, nor did I hear a hypocritical “pointing finger of damnation,” followed by shame toward these characters in the reading. Looking for more of her books.
