Goodreads Description: When New Yorker 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.
My Thoughts: First I have to say I was skeptical of this book because it was everywhere. Whenever a book is overhyped I go into it with caution. I must say I was presently surprised by this book. This book did something that contemporaries rarely do for me and that is read like a movie. It made me laugh, it made me mad, and it made me cry. I enjoyed every minute that I was with this family. I would recommend this book to you if you are someone who enjoys contemporary literature, if you like romantic comedies, or stories about family dynamics. As soon as I finished I went online and purchased the rest of the books in this series. I gave this book 5 out of 5 stars. Have any of you read this book or seen the movie? If so what did you think? Happy reading y’all!!!!
