Book Description

A short story set in Tokyo...

Freelance photographer Seren Takahashi wants to heal her wounded soul after a devastating loss. While embarking on a personal adventure into Tokyo’s Shibuya district, she discovers a city rich in culture and vibrant in its exoticness. What she hadn’t expected was finding closure and rediscovering the true person hidden inside. When she gives into destiny’s pull, her journey awakens a need to live in the moment, embrace her fears, and open her heart to love.

Author’s note: All author proceeds from the sale of this story will be donated to the Red Cross and ShelterBox for the relief effort in Japan.

2.0 out of 5 stars It Could Have Been Better... June 1, 2014
Format:Paperback
As a person interested in Japan and hoping for a strong Eurasian heroine, I was looking forward to a fun and engaging novel. "Shibuya Moment" started out promising, with beautiful writing that described the scenery of Tokyo from our Eurasian heroine's point of view.

Unfortunately, that wasn't the case.

Seren, short for Serendipity Takahashi - meets and immediately falls for a white man - Max - in Tokyo, Japan. Seren is almost written as a Mary Sue, since she has a sadness that really isn't explained but is suddenly made to feel more optimistic by Max who is not only an expert potter, but a expert cook , an English teacher loved by his students, an inheritor of a large home due to his grandfather doing business in Japan, a man who says all the right things all the time, and a man who speaks fluent Japanese. Yet, even though we are also told that Seren had ex-boyfriends, we never see how Max actually differs from previous boyfriends since Seren and Max seem to be moving extremely fast after one or two days.

We learn that Seren's father is dead, but she really didn't appreciate him until the moment she is in Tokyo. And, we never learn or really hear about Seren's mother. We know by the book's cover photo that Seren is (or at least looks) mixed heritage, but we're not given any insight on this mixed heritage. She is only described as 'Japanese' and 'American,' but I took this to mean that she was culturally Japanese and American since she lived (?) in both countries. (Similarly to the way a black -American who lives in Japan can be culturally American and Japanese). Nevertheless, it's not clear...since Seren could very well be full-Japanese as I looked back at the book's description and finding no mention that she is indeed Eurasian (i.e.

Probably my favorite book by Jax Cassidy! I love the way she tells a story I felt like I was there in Tokyo and I related to Seren. Beautiful story , beautifully written. What else could you ask for in a good romance novel. Had me hooked from the very beginning!
