Publisher's Summary

Jenny’s never had much time for boys, K-pop, or really anything besides her dream of being a professional cellist. But when she finds herself falling for a K-pop idol, she has to decide whether their love is worth the risk. A modern forbidden romance wrapped in the glamorous and exclusive world of K-pop, XOXO is perfect for fans of Jenny Han and Maurene Goo.

Jenny didn’t get to be an award-winning, classically trained cellist without choosing practice over fun. That is, until the night she meets Jaewoo. Mysterious, handsome, and just a little bit tormented, Jaewoo is exactly the kind of distraction Jenny would normally avoid. And yet, she finds herself pulled into spending an unforgettable evening wandering Los Angeles with him on the night before his flight home to South Korea.

With Jaewoo an ocean away, there’s no use in dreaming of what could have been. But when Jenny and her mother move to Seoul to take care of her ailing grandmother, who does she meet at the elite arts academy she’s just been accepted to? Jaewoo.

Finding the dreamy stranger who swept you off your feet in your homeroom is one thing, but Jaewoo isn’t just any student. Turns out, Jaewoo is a member of one of the biggest K-pop bands in the world. And like most K-pop idols, Jaewoo is strictly forbidden from dating anyone.

When a relationship means not only jeopardizing her place at her dream music school but also endangering everything Jaewoo’s worked for, Jenny has to decide once and for all just how much she’s willing to risk for love. XOXO is a new romance that proves chasing your dreams doesn’t have to mean sacrificing your heart, from acclaimed author Axie Oh.

cute story but poor naration

The story is cute and a fast read. Thoroughly enjoyed the story itself but I couldn't stand the narrator. I ended up getting the book to read it and returned the audiobook. While I didn't like the narrator, I do recommend the book if you want a fun, sweet, fluff book.

Couldn't finish the book

I could not get past the terrible narration. I ended up returning this book. I may try to read this on my kindle instead.

Cute YA Romance

Cute story and the writing was decent. My one issue is the annoying voices the narrator gave the female characters; I found it distracting.

Skip the audio read the book

Heard a lot of people rave about this book and was expecting a much cuter story. The book doesn't show much insight into the romance of the main characters as I would have liked to see. Which means you don't really have much investment in their story and whether or not they'll work out. The narration was also terrible. I really wish I would have just read the book instead; I think I probably would have enjoyed the story a lot more without the irritating voices the narrator chose to give the characters for whatever reason.

Overall, it was a cute enough story for me to finish it however I'd suggest getting a physically copy instead.

This was a fun story.

Jenny, quite a few times made choices that felt inconsistent with her character, but, on the whole, this was a very fun, fluffy, light hearted read that was entertaining.

Fanfic for adults, lol

Look, I used to read fanfics when I was in HS and like my first year of university and I’m very far away from those years now but this book really brought me back and I loved it! I’m just curious to know who the inspiration behind the main Kpop idol was 😂 Anyways, it’s really good, super entertaining and the performance was great!

YA Kdrama in all its glory

This book was so good! I’ve been looking for a book like this for a long time. Something that is fun, an interesting group of friends, a swoon worthy romance, with a kdrama feel! I was not disappointed. I thoroughly enjoyed the story, the narrator, and the characters. I also drooled every time the amazing food was mentioned. Please, read/listen to this. You will not be disappointed! Oh, and there is subway mentions so it’s legit kdrama!
