As CEO of Fong Investments, I'm a busy man. In fact, my family claims I'm an obsessive workaholic, and when they force me to take two weeks off, I have no idea what to do with myself.
While brooding over an espresso, I meet Courtney Kwan, a biomedical researcher who savors the little things in life. And, suddenly, an idea strikes me—I will pay this woman to teach me how to enjoy my vacation from work.
Soon, I find myself doing crazy things like baking cookies, reading for pleasure, buying a phallic cactus, and falling in love. But Courtney is dealing with some serious issues of her own, and I fear that when I return to work, I won't be able to give her what she needs, and I'll lose her forever…
Julian and Courtney rock!
This is the first book I’ve read by Jackie and it exceeded all of my expectations! Julian Fong is a hot CEO who doesn’t know how to relax and enjoy a day off. Courtney Kwan is a biomedical researcher who tries to enjoy the little things because she can’t always do that. Their story takes place in Toronto where I grew up so in reading this book, I kept getting so excited because it felt like I was reading a friend’s story. Depression and how it impacts Courtney, her family and her relationship with Julian were beautifully rendered! Please, please read this book because you will love it and Jackie did a phenomenal job crafting a story of two Chinese Canadians falling in love in a pretty great city while tackling their issues and working through them! I really hope we get more stories because Julian’s brothers deserve HEAs too 👩🏻🔬👨🏻💻☕️🎍
