Would you try another book from Kasie West and/or Laurence Bouvard?
This was my first Kasie West book and I can't help feeling a little underwhelmed. I'd been looking forward to this one for a while because that cover featured a really cute Asian guy and from his last name I guessed he was of Vietnamese ancestry.
The cover really fooled me a I guess. If I took one look at that cover(like I did) I would have assumed this book relied heavily on romance. The romance is so little of the book and it's really more about how differently people change when a young girl gets lucky from winning the lottery.
I was a little disappointed because I was super excited picking up a YA contemporary romance with an Asian LI, who was fun and hot because they never get a chance to be that in mainstream media, but this really wasn't that. If you wanna read books about cute Asian boys I'd suggest anything by Cindy Pon or The Sun is also a Star by Nicola Yoon. The only thing I really liked about Seth was that he reminded me of dumb but lovable Josh Chan from C***y Ex girlfriend. Seth was so darn dense it was actually kind of cute but the narrator did a really bad job at capturing his voice. She narrated everyone else decently but her male voices are just okay.
Overall this is a cute, light, fluffy summer read but if you're looking for more plot, this won't be the book for you.
How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?
A male narrator to do the male voices.

I usually love Kasie West books but this one fell flat for me. I only saw Seth as a friend and nothing more. There was no chemistry or character development. Very predictable results from lottery. Sadly not worth my credit.

the performance made it sound like the main character was a 14 year old giggly school girl rather than an 18 year old trying to get into college. The voices were so annoying but I wanted to finish the story. not my favourite
