Publisher Description

"The perfect childhood friends-to-lovers story—full stop." —Christina Lauren, New York Times bestselling authors of The Unhoneymooners and The Soulmate Equation

Her ex-boyfriend wants her back. Her former best friend is in town. When did Hannah’s life become a K-drama?

Hannah Cho had the next year all planned out—the perfect summer with her boyfriend, Nate, and then a fun senior year with their friends.

But then Nate does what everyone else in Hannah’s life seems to do—he leaves her, claiming they have nothing in common. He and all her friends are newly obsessed with K-pop and K-dramas, and Hannah is not. After years of trying to embrace the American part and shunning the Korean side of her Korean American identity to fit in, Hannah finds that’s exactly what now has her on the outs.

But someone who does know K-dramas—so well that he’s actually starring in one—is Jacob Kim, Hannah’s former best friend, whom she hasn’t seen in years. He’s desperate for a break from the fame, so a family trip back to San Diego might be just what he needs…that is, if he and Hannah can figure out what went wrong when they last parted and navigate the new feelings developing between them.

"A smart, funny book not to be missed!"  —Emiko Jean, New York Times bestselling author of Tokyo Ever After

K-pop ya

Seoulmates is a new romance young adult book by Susan Lee. I believe this is her debut book as I haven’t seen any books by her, but after reading I am for sure looking forward to her future books! This book follows Hannah as her former best friend Jacob shows up at a family trip.
I really liked the k-pop aspects as I listen to some songs although I’ve never seen any k-dramas so I didn’t understand those as much. I don’t know that you’ll find this as enjoyable if you’re not into that. However it’s a good introduction to it as well and good representation. It’s something to try, you might like it!
Besides for some miscommmunication I really loved the couple and their relationship in this book. This was a friends to lovers and I’m usually more of an enemies to lovers gal, but I still really shipped it. There was a bit of enemies to lovers too. I also liked the good family relationships shown in this book.

It was an adorable story

I absolutely loved this book! While it wasn’t anything crazy or overly- angsty, the book was still emotional and cute. The author really made the reader feel for Hannah and Jacob with all that they went through. It just made it better when Hannah and Jacob finally got to be together.
I also really liked the aspect of Hannah coming to terms with her identity as Korean American. At first, she felt like she wasn’t Korean enough, but she eventually overcame that.
The plot of the story was written pretty well, and the story flowed. I also liked how the author portrayed the characters; they had their flaws, but they never let it them get out of hand.
I think this book is great for teens and young adults cause it’s mostly clean but had a little bit of sexual stuff in it. If you’re a fan of friends-to-lovers and all things Korean, this is the book for you!
