The title and the cover art were both creative and pretty Sadly those are the only two things I liked about this book Ultimately this was not my kind of book in any way and I have no interest in other offerings from GormanThe protagonist is a whiny needy jealous insecure immature bumbling idiot She rambles on and on for pages about being alone in the city when she was supposed to be there with her boyfriend who s a workaholic and doesn t visit as often as she needs him to So she wanders aimlessly second guessing her choice to move to Hong Kong likely irritating locals with her poor communication skills language barrier notwithstanding If I were her boyfriend I wouldn t have put up with her for a second She s pathetic Who wants a clingy woman who has no self confidence and ruins all the time you spend together by doubting being snarky and nagging Some of the writing was witty but there was no real action in this book until much too far into itSpoilerOf course your boyfriend is going to see other women when you act like you want to break up with him and then verbally AGREE to it I wanted so badly for her to find some spine and go after what she wanted She just whined in her head and acted like a wallflower A little self confidence would have worked wonders for this headache inducing protagonist
