Amazing book! This is a love story between a Japanese CEO and and American English professor. The clash of cultures, personal experiences and tempers make for a riveting and sometimes very amusing story. The characters are well developed and the prose is lyrical. This is a love story of a love that surpasses the physical and into a more spiritual level of union. Definitely recommended! ( )

Is it possible for a Japanese man and an American woman to find love in each other? Can two people overcome cultural differences, not to mention their own pasts? In this book, the author has given the reader a fantastic look at how love is born, nurtured and grows between a Japanese man, Ryoki, and his assistant, Kate. At first glance they are about as different as two people can be, but over the course of the book, they manage to overcome their differences. Ryoki has his Japanese background forming his life and actions, while Kate has her American background. The author has given the reader an excellent insight into Japanese culture and its influences while showing the reader how both the Japanese man and American in a loving manner. I loved the way this book does not follow the usual boy meets girl, boy dates girl and they fall in love pattern found in so many romance novels. This was a refreshing change of pace. The book is very well written and the characters are believable and true to themselves. For a new author, Ms. Hiat has definitely shown that she can produce a great book. I look forward to reading more from her. I received this book from Goodreads. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0984663401, Paperback)

Ryoki is comfortable in his custom-built hell, making money with both hands and slashing his path through the world of men. But there's something about Kate, something important dangling just at the edge of his consciousness. She can't read a map, she falls off her heels, and yet she saves his life with a button and a bit of thread. Terrified she's privately plotting to marry him, he studies her with hooded eyes, attempting to discover her secrets for himself. But understanding Kate will challenge everything he thought he knew. Why exactly did Eve hand over her apple?
