The acclaimed international bestseller now a MAJOR MOTION PICTURE starring Constance Wu, Henry Golding, Michelle Yeoh and Gemma Chan!
When Rachel Chu agrees to spend the summer in Singapore with her boyfriend, Nicholas Young, she envisions a humble family home and quality time with the man she hopes to marry. But Nick has failed to give his girlfriend a few key details. One, that his childhood home looks like a palace; two, that he grew up riding in more private planes than cars; and three, that he just happens to be the country's most eligible bachelor.
On Nick's arm, Rachel may as well have a target on her back the second she steps off the plane, and soon, her relaxed vacation turns into an obstacle course of old money, new money, nosy relatives, and scheming social climbers.

💤Borrrriiinnng!

Another Cinderella story, with a twist of modern era.
CE on steroids. *sorry CE fans.... or not* ;)

Halfway reading it, I was certain I'll be giving 2* in my review, but then the story's getting so much better... only to be flat again in last couple chapters. So 3* it is. Not bad. Just not my fav taste of tea.

I love Astrid and her conflicted marriage. I can't blame Michael for being tired of their life, but I do looked down on him for being cowardice. He shouldn't married her ih he wasn't trully in love with her. He shouldn't orchestrating such a cheapen scheme to getting out of it. Speaking oh honorable and trully in love, Charlie gave me a chill. Wish him the very best of life.

Another character I like was Oliver. He's stealing some lime light here and there. Cunning as snake he is.

Well, by and by, I'm still curious enough to see how Nick and Rachel would holding on. So I might be taking the second book. But just don't hold your breath.

Maria Rechilda Decanohas quoted2 years ago
all that talk of “being in love” or “finding the right one” was absolute nonsense. Marriage was purely a matter of timing, and whenever a man was finally done sowing his wild oats and ready to settle down, whichever girl happened to be there at the time would be the right one.
