It’s the eve of Rachel Chu’s wedding, and she should be over the moon. She has a flawless Asscher-cut diamond, a wedding dress she loves, and a fiancé willing to thwart his meddling relatives and give up one of the biggest fortunes in Asia in order to marry her. Still, Rachel mourns the fact that her birthfather, a man she never knew, won’t be there to walk her down the aisle.
Then a chance accident reveals his identity. Suddenly, Rachel is drawn into a dizzying world of Shanghai splendor, a world where people attend church in a penthouse, where exotic cars race down the boulevard, and where people aren’t just crazy rich … they’re China rich.
I wish I liked this book more. I mostly enjoyed the first book. Mostly because it was pretty wild and ridiculous. This book was that too, but I couldn’t handle it. I thought it was over the top and I just didn’t enjoy it like I did in the first book. I don’t think I’ll make it to the third book.
There wasn’t enough Rachel and Nick in this book. Too much time was spent with the other characters we met in the first book that I just didn’t care about. Also, this whole book was supposed to be about Rachel meeting and spending time with her dad, but that literally didn’t happen. She saw her dad like five times.
This story was the same thing as the first book, but with different bits of drama and in a different location.
Overall, I think I’m done with this series. It was just too much for me. But it’s a well-loved series and if you think you’ll like it, it’s definitely a wild ride.
Keep on reading lovelies, Amanda.
