About the book:
Venus Chau is a high-powered video game developer. Now she might be working for the man she’s always hated … but what if he’s no longer the man she thought she knew? The third book in the Sushi series offers romance with the spice of ginger.
About the author:
Camy Tang grew up in Hawaii and worked for years as a biologist/researcher until she felt God’s call to return to the writing that she had loved as a student. She now writes "romance with a kick of wasabi" and, with her husband, is a staff worker with the youth group at her church. Visit her website at camytang.com.
For now this will be a mini-one as some things interrupted my reading schedule and I was only able to read the first 11 chapters, however, I will post a full review in this same spot when I finish the story.
I am not one who likes a lot of metaphors and similies and Tang uses them a lot. I find them distracting. The same with strong verbs all the time. The same with overly aggressive and sarcastic heroines. They are found in each book in the series, yet I always end up really liking the story by book's end despite those issues. Camy's writing style is unique and never boring. Her characters do gross things (like throw up), but they are still endearing. She can take someone who starts out with mean thoughts and make you actually like them by the story's end. SO I'm expecting the same thing with this one. She also has fabulous romantic tension, which, of course, I live for. That's a real strength in Camy's novels. This review will be replaced with a full one soon. Peace!
