‘Til the end of the show do us part
Letty McDonnell—a hug first and ask questions later kind of gal—stumbles into an unexpected scandal with her favorite K-pop star when she spots him at the airport. Is it bad timing or a blessing in disguise? The international publicity leads to a job offer from the reality show Marry My Stalker, where the two pretend to be man and wife as they complete a variety of crazy couple missions.
Wacky challenges, jealous fangirls, and a language barrier can’t slow Letty down. Especially when she has handsome translator, Ben Park, whispering in her ear. He steers her away from cultural faux pas and offers behind-the-scenes encouragement as she maneuvers the unfamiliar public arena. But is he sincerely interested or just doing his job? The affectionate words her fake husband says for the cameras are always repeated by Ben’s caring voice, and Letty begins to wonder if a romance without spotlights or red carpets is the real path to true love.
This book was a lot of fun. This book starts after Flower Boy Tour Guide, where we first met our leading lady, Letty.
We start off at the airport, where a classic K-drama scene unfolds. Letty literally bumps into her favorite star and becomes an overnight gossip sensation. Not to miss out on the free publicity, the Kpop singers agency launches a web show, Marry My Stalker. Because Letty doesn’t speak Korean, she gets her own charming translator, Ben.
From the array of reality brides, to the camera crew, the Kpop stars themselves, and to Letty’s developing relationships with her co-stars and translator, this story will keep you turning (digital) pages.
A delightful modern day fairy tale.

Flower Boy: noun 1. slang for a really hot guy
Hannah Reynolds travels to Korea in search of her own drama hero come to life. What she gets instead is gorgeous, but surly tour guide, Jae Lee. He seems determined to ruin every romantic location they visit with his snarky comments, but Hannah can’t deny the crackling tension between them.
As they travel around the country with a busload of wacky K-drama and K-pop fans, their chemistry keeps drawing the two together. Hannah sees the mountain of problems standing between her and a relationship with Jae. They live in different countries. She’s flying home in five days. And he always takes an emotional step back whenever they get closer. But her heart doesn’t want to listen to reason. All it can see is the flower boy tour guide.
Flower Boy Tour Guide is the first in the multi-author series, My Korean Crush. These authors love learning about Korea because of what we’ve been lucky enough to see of their dramas and Kpop music.
I was lucky enough to read this prior to release, and I’ve already purchased my ebook. (It’s only 99 cents of you act fast!)
The story sets out with a young American arriving in Seoul. She feels like she’s come home, and is excited to be there. When she meets her roommate for the tour, it’s instant best friends. And then there is Jae. He may look like a flower boy, but he has thorns. Romantic comedy ensues in this delightful debut by Shannon Kent.
