I was so excited to read this book because it is an own voices book written by a biracial Filipino American woman. As some of you may know, I too am a biracial Filipino American woman. I knew I had to read this book because representation matters!

All in all, I found this to be a cute romance.

This was a really fascinating book. It combined pre-WWII and WWII historical fiction with the cut throat world of haute couture fashion. It took me a little longer to get interested in it, but once I was, I was hooked!

AkashaVampie @oddandbookish I didn't know there were books. I have been watching Jesse and Descendants 1& 2. I'm wondering if they were planning on doing more than 3 of them. I hope they dedicate the 3rd one to him. 2w
oddandbookish @AkashaVampie I read somewhere online that this was going to be the last film but I feel like they could totally continue it with other VKs. 1w

This was such a cute and sexy, but still very sweet romance!

Marin and Brad were such a cute couple. I loved their dynamic, especially how they brought out the best in each other and encouraged one another. That‘s #RelationshipGoals.

Not as good as Conversations with Friends but that's just because Conversations with Friends is one of my all time favorite books. Ending fell flat for me. But I would still recommend it.

Overall, this is a powerful book. It touches upon many themes such as family, faith, and life behind bars. Thank you Alice for sharing your story with the world and inspiring others. Also, kudos to Kim Kardashian West for her role in helping free Alice. Kim gets a lot of hate for various things but you can‘t deny her role in this.

Since this was a novella, it was pretty short and that was my main issue with it. The whole romance happened at lightning speed so it felt rushed. This would have been better as an actual novel so that the feelings and emotions could develop more fully.

But for what it was, it wasn‘t that bad. It‘s a quick holiday romance that‘s short and sweet with a little bit of holiday spice.
