Breaking an asian stereotype!

A FUN read...with lots of laughs and heat. I couldn't get enough of the inner dialog / antics of Jessica's inner goddess...These two have an instant connection but have a few things to work out before they can come together.

Great Listen...worth the money...YES!

I was provided this free review copy audiobook by the author, narrator, or publisher in exchange for an honest review.

A Home Run!

Jessica is spending a week as a baseball spring training intern, trying to find a new man to erase the memory of her ex. Rookie pitcher Jay arrives for training, burnt by his cheating ex-fiancee. When they meet, sparks fly and things heat up.

This was a quick spicy listen with interesting characters! Jessica had a hilarious inner goddess that primps and preens, and I could just picture her sitting on Jessica's shoulder like a little bad angel. It made for some funny moments. Jay and Jessica had an instant steamy attraction, and it was believable. I'm ashamed to say I can't think of another book I've read with Korean main characters, it was a refreshing read.

The narration style was another first for me. It's read by both a male and female narrator. During Jessica's chapters, the female narrator reads and the male narrator speaks Jay's lines, and vice versa. It only took a paragraph to get used to it, and the narration was so seamless and well done that I really liked the style. I received a copy of the audiobook, and I'm voluntarily leaving a review. This book is a great way to spend a few hours with a smile on your face!
