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.
