I was delightfully surprised by this one. As a second generation Asian American, I don't actively seek out western romance novels that feature Asian protagonists, partially because the choices are very slim, but mainly because I'm scared how the Asian characters would be portrayed. Thankfully, this book features two characters falling in love, and they just happen to be Chinese American. ❤ I love it! Can we have more books like that, please? There are no descriptions of almond-shaped eyes or any mention of "oriental and exotic." The story did go into cliché territory when it briefly touched on the Chinese zodiac but it's all good.

The story was pretty weak though. At the beginning I couldn't put it down, but it was slow in the middle because there's only so much of Zoe's "I'm totally off on love and dating" I can take! When Zoe and Mike finally started dating (or "fake" dating), the book only had a few chapters left. The romance part was rushed and didn't feel organic at all. That was a huge disappointment. ( )

Currently, Zoe's only mission in life is to get her matchmaking mother and her meddlesome sisters off her back.

Besides, this unknown guy might just take her mind off of the man she can't stop thinking about despite her better judgment, her latest business nemesis, Mike--gorgeous and antimarriage.
