About this deal

Meanwhile, Andrea meets Eric Deng, an multinational hotelier who dazzles her with big romantic gestures, like finding a first edition of her favorite book.

It was fast paced, funny and taught me alot about the Chinese-Malaysian culture and how pressured women feel that they have to get married young or by their thirties or their families will disown them and cut them out. The introduction has dictated clearly where the story will head, so you can sit back, relax and enjoy the journey.

A very handsome, sweet man that her family would definitely NOT approve of (he's not Chinese, lawyer or not). Although the book comps compare this story to Bridget Jones meets Crazy Rich Asians (true--in a way-- through journal entries and, well, crazy rich Asians), Lauren Ho has created a truly new vibe with her unique (and perfectly in tune/ on point/ relatable/ full of laughable snark) writing style.

But Andrea doesn’t see Suresh as a viable romantic option because a) he’s engaged, even if his fiancée is dragging her feet about moving to Singapore; and b) she doesn’t completely trust him, and misses the ample evidence that he doesn’t care about making partner.They mutually pursue one another around their busy schedules, with things getting more serious once she meets his six-year old daughter.

For lawyers rushing to make it to partnership, maybe Andrea can offer you an advice or two, I don't know. But the book just wasn’t funny enough to make me want to spend several hours in Andrea’s negative mindset. closeted due to the fact she can't be fully out to her family and marries a man as a result of that. Hailing from Malaysia, she lived in the United Kingdom, France and Luxembourg before moving with her family to Singapore, where she is ostensibly working on her next novel. Bought this after reading rave reviews by bookstagrammers and they were not lying: a laugh-out-loud rom-com from start to finish.Laura Jane Williams, bestselling author of Our Stop 'Both joyfully entertaining and socially perceptive, Lauren Ho's debut is a vivid read on dating, work and family in Singapore through the lens of a brutally honest protagonist of gold. ETA 3: Please be aware that if you happen to dislike this book and you choose to leave a critical review, there’s a good chance you will be trolled by this person. This book didn't grip me straight away, as the first half of the book was very slow and painted the main character as quite unlikeable but the second half was almost like a completely different book.
