There is no denying that Asian parents are strict, they certainly have a unique way of raising their children. The most common thing the Asian parents do is, pressurize their children into a profession that they are not fervid about. I have seen so many such cases around. Then, they pressurize their children to marry according to their wish (mostly in case of girls) which according to me is wrong. They overrule academics and expect too much. But I must say I am very lucky that my parents never force me to do things that I don’t like.
So talking about this book, it is about an Asian (Taiwanese) girl named Chloe Wang who is asked to marry Hongbo, a boy chosen by her parents. But she doesn't believe that he is good for her, so she rents a boyfriend, Drew from Rent for Tour ‘Rents, a company that provides trained fake boyfriends. The quest is simple, she has to impress her parents that Drew is good enough for her, so they will stop bragging about Hongbo. But at last, she starts falling for the real Drew.
What happens next? Will she talk about it?
To know what happened go grab a book for yourself!😁
Chloe’s perspective was genuinely interesting and I loved seeing her character development. Drew, on the other hand, was way too much of this Perfect Guy.
I enjoyed how accurate this book was. I liked the use of linguistics in the staring of every chapter. I could connect to the story as Chloe's problems were genuine and are common among all the youngsters. The plot and characters are good. The story is described in both Chloe’s and Drew’s POV and I loved this contrasting theme. The easy dip into romance made me smile.
Overall, an enjoyable read with a great ending.
SO HERE ARE A FEW MOVIE RECOMMENDATIONS BASED ON THIS BOOK:
1. TO ALL THE BOYS I'VE LOVED BEFORE
2. THE PROPOSAL
3. THE PERFECT DATE
5. MIDNIGHT AT THE MAGNOLIA
