“This 48-karat beach read is crazy fun.” —Entertainment Weekly
When New Yorker Rachel Chu agrees to spend the summer in Singapore with her boyfriend, Nicholas Young, she envisions a humble family home and quality time with the man she hopes to marry. But Nick has failed to give his girlfriend a few key details. One, that his childhood home looks like a palace; two, that he grew up riding in more private planes than cars; and three, that he just happens to be the country’s most eligible bachelor.
On Nick’s arm, Rachel may as well have a target on her back the second she steps off the plane, and soon, her relaxed vacation turns into an obstacle course of old money, new money, nosy relatives, and scheming social climbers.

All Style, No Substance
Very little happened in this book, and it was quite shallow. Lots of descriptions of the crazy culture of rich Asians, which was interesting, but got tiresome after awhile. So many minor characters, it was hard to keep track. It was a good sleep aid - put me to sleep in a few minutes almost every night!
It seems that the author spent more time researching designer names than considering readers might want more character development or, heaven forbid, a bit of texture to the plot.
A very lightweight story from a below average writer.
