    "I love the cover for this book!"

    Jeannie Lin does a fantastic job ensconcing the reader into a world rich with culture, traditions, and insight to the political play of the time while using the romance story as a vehicle. That being said, the romance needed more oomph, in my opinion. With romance novels it is almost a given that the main characters will have a HEA so the road the characters take to get there is where I love to see the build-up of the romance. The tension, the angst, the progressive peeling away to understand and get to know one another is what drives the romance past boy meets girl to boy/girl fall in love. The characters in this book skirt around their attraction which isn't a bad thing, however there really isn't much build-up until more than half way through the book. I guess it boils down to what you enjoy in a romance novel. I'm a person who enjoys novels that are character driven with the situations and places being things that set the stage for the romance. If you are an individual who enjoys more of the descriptive details of objects and places with the characters placed to help the story, then this book will be the right one for you.


    Narrator: Sarah Lam
    Performance: 4/5
    I wasn't sure what to expect with the narration because I was so used to listening to HR novels that are read with a British accent. Lam does a great job with this narration using a British accent while she read the story and switching to a softer Chinese accent when reading the dialogues. There were a few time when her two accent would mingle, but it didn't bother me.
