Chase, a college student, has returned from an exchange program in Italy and has enrolled at in classes at a California college. . .or rather her mother has enrolled her now that her mother works in one of the offices there. Her other has also decided to set Chase up on a blind date without her daughters permission--one with a Korean student, since her mother is an over-the-top Korean romance fan. Chase soon finds herself actually interested in the guy, but before the romance can really get started, troubles arise. By mistake, Chase downloads a secret file which leads to company espionage. . .the same company her maybe boyfriend's best friend is heir to. Now, she's in the cross hairs of a dangerous company battle and worse, caught between to guys' hearts.
This book is written with the same quirky scheme as can be found in any modern day Korean drama, but with an American girl twist. Both guys are hot and rich. One is cute and open to her, the other closed and hard. It's the perfect cliche love triangle. The pacing holds nicely the whole way through, never dwelling too long on Chase's thoughts and emotions but simply letting the adventure unfold. And it is adventurous.
Chase is caught in a corporation battle where every means is allowed. Despite her innocence, she is in life threatening danger. The story holds enough twists and turns to keep the tension high, and the real 'evil' force in the dark until the last page.
Although I really enjoyed this read, I was a bit disappointed by the chemistry between Chase and her final hero. The disinterest lasted a little too long and didn't build with the gentle slope which it could have. The end of the book wraps everything up nicely, but felt rushed. The problems were solved too easily and Chase's final decision of her new life just snapped into place, and left some relationships unresolved.
Still, reading this was like enjoying a small piece of candy. It's sweet, short and holds all the flavor which makes Korean Dramas so fun.
It is very important to that when I read a book, that I absolutely must have some fun – whether it is the characters or events in the plot. For this book, it was both. I laughed, cried, and burned with embarrassment as the main female character undergoes a gamut of experiences that all starts with a blind date set up by her hilarious, K-Drama-addicted mother and ends with her life being changed in so many surprising ways. As I don’t want to give anything away, I have to leave it at that.
But, it’s not solely about the romance – there is an underlying thriller plot that has the reader in suspense as the details and events unfold. I like playing detective when I encounter these kinds of plots and I was not disappointed as I tried to figure out the truth behind everything. I admit that I was a tricked a few times and I’m totally okay with it. I love being so engrossed in a story that I lose my preconceptions and allow myself to be taken in whatever direction the plot takes me.
Just as a side-note, there are phrases and words in Korean that have been written in romanization throughout the story, especially in dialogue. Some of them are explained while others aren’t. There isn’t a translation page so you will have to do some research into their meanings. It doesn’t cause any problems with understanding the story so there is no need to worry. I thought it would be wise to say something, though.
I wholeheartedly recommend this book to anyone looking for a satisfying read. Hopefully, you will enjoy it as much as I did!
