Publisher's Summary

Tia Wang’s wedding planning to-do list: 

  1. Find a dress her perfectionist future mother-in-law approves of 
  2. Keep her cool over fortune cookies 
  3. Divorce her not-so-ex-husband, Andrew Parker 

When she fell in love and married her childhood best friend on a whim in Vegas, Tia innocently thought love conquered all. Turns out, that was a crushing lie. Her world shattered as she and Andrew were torn apart by secrets and mistakes. 

Ten years later, Tia has left the pain behind and carved out a new life with Mr. Perfect. The only thing standing between her and happily ever after? A divorce from Andrew. 

It should have been easy for Andrew to sign his name on the dotted line. Aloof, prickly, and always in control, Andrew has done everything to escape his past. But seeing Tia on his front steps after all these years? He can’t help wondering what could have been. Andrew never stopped thinking about Tia, and if he has to hold those divorce papers hostage to get his second chance, he will. 

Feelings resurface, stronger and more complex than ever. But Tia and Andrew have more than Mr. Perfect between them. Can they overcome their past and a new threat to find the courage to forge a future together? 

Give Love a Chai is a full-length contemporary romance and can be listened to as a stand-alone. Book two in the Common Threads series, Seduction in the City World, Penny Reid Book Universe.

This story deserves a Re-write.

Ting/Tia and her parents were fairly believable as members of a wealthy immigrant family. Though as far as Tiger parents go, they were push overs. Andrew absolutely wallowed in angst throughout which dragged the story down. Curiously, the sex was inserted in weird and off-putting moments. Even an attorney would realize that sex is not the correct response to a loved one explaining her pain from the most tragic loss in her life…in which he played a part. No, not done unless he is the most insensitive man in the Penny Reid Universe. Oh wait, he is. Speaking of that, the author did not do justice to the characters borrowed from the Knitting in the City books. Missing is the charm in the way Dan swears. In this story he appears as a one dimensional knuckle-dragger. The borrowed characters were shadows of themselves and wasted in this book. Yes, Re-write reducing the angst by 75%, reduce the miscommunication by 75%, flesh out the borrowed characters (making them actually recognizable as Knitting in the City folk), and Jeez-Louise install a pair on Andrew. This story is worth a re-write. I kept reading thinking the characters would improve. Sadly they did not. I enjoyed Kelsey Navarro’s narration. And while I initially did not think Mr Walker was proficient, I went back and added a star because his narration actually reflected the one dimensional aspect of Andrew Parker.

Very cute story and great debut novel

This story was super cute! I really love second chance romance. Such a good trope! And Nanxi Wen wrote it really well, especially considering this was her debut novel - you definitely couldn't tell it was written extremely well!

Andrew and Ting Ting (Tia) fell in love at a very young age and got married in Vegas at 18. They both thought the paperwork was properly filed for the divorce to go through a few months later when everything fell apart, after a ton of fighting and finding a woman asleep in their bed, and Andrew wouldn't give an explanation why she was there and he was sleeping on the couch. Fast forward 10 years and she shows up in his office at Cipher Securities in Chicago, having flown in from Boston where she teaches at MIT, asking for a divorce! The story that follows is pure gold. Love the appearances of our beloved KITC Dan and Kat!
