She has amnesia She’s on the run from her father’s creditors She’s enjoying her last days on earthEver since Jang Min Hee walked into Gio’s small museum she’s given him one. Borocay Island sounds really lovely One of the things I enjoyed about this novella is that the protagonist Gio works there and lives nearby and though he s proud of the island and enjoys showing it off to tourists it is his home a place he also takes for granted I enjoyed this take on a tropical paradise vacation spot so than if the protagonist had been a vacationerI really liked Gio as the protagonist I have a definite weakness for responsible guys who take care of their families and let me just add here that it was nice to read a romance where the protagonist was the guy rather than the girl This one had to be written that way though because the girl Min Hee tells Gio all kinds of whoppers about why she s on the island she s on the run from her family she has amnesia she had a brain tumor and is enjoying her last days in this world so of course the story can t be told from her point of view or it d give everything awayI think the basic truth about who Min Hee really is pretty clear to the reader though Gio misses the clues But the exact reason Min Hee came to Boracay is harder to guess I didn t and Gio s reaction to finding out is both understandable and um perhaps not well considered Of course things work out in the end thoughThis novella is nicely written Here s my favorite passage The watercolor she was doing captured the beach as if seen through a dream all soft sea foam and powder the colors disappearing into the white edges of the paper The sea itself danced with different shades white near the shore moving to pale green then growing bolder into the deep blue of the horizon Boracay was usually seen in the loud and bright colors of summer But under Min Hee s brush it looked like a filtered paradise something old and fragile and familiar Beautiful eh Art is an important thread right through the story This novella also left me with a deep desire for calamansi muffins Which I actually made this morning because I have a calamansi plant in a pot on my deck Mmm Tasty even without the white beaches and palm trees

Cover Story Girl

Ver Story Kindle rocks hiding in dressing rooms and dragging her out of bars But how can Gio tell what's true from what isn't Their worlds are getting unraveled one story at a time.. I enjoyed this one a lot It s patterned after the light Koreanovelas uirky funny scenes tearful goodbye and then a grand gesture At one point the main character blurts out What is this a Koreanovela Yes yes it is Gio but is written with such care and intelligence that it never feels over the top or silly or false I am delighted to see Boracay keep in mind that I ve never been to Boracay through the eyes of a resident and not a tourist If Gio were a tourist he would have waxed poetic day in and day out about the beach and the sand Gio in the novella works there so he sees it as it is simply as a path on his way home It s pretty sure but it s just there also have you seen the bats The five colored beach only becomes charged with heavier meaning when he falls in love We say a place changes us but most of the time it s just ourselves finding new meaning and new connectionsMy gripe is how Gio regarded Korea as though he had simply crossed the street His only comment is on the weather I would imagine Gio who I don t think travels much would at least comment on the airport the road the cab fare Granted his eyes are trained on his one goal but he talks so much about creamy skin and now he is suddenly conspicuously unimpressed that he s in another country He displays no terror when he pretends to be someone important to Security which seems very un Gio like to meThe big scene in the end felt a bit out there but it was saved by humor that I felt was so distinctly Filipino that I actually laughed out loud Live dubbing through megaphone I can see that happening in a Sarah GJohn Lloyd movie Still entertaining read I can see this on the big screen

REVIEW Æ THECOLCHESTERCIRCLE.CO.UK Ï Chris Mariano

Excuse after another about why she’s vacationing at scenic Boracay Island Rarely has Gio’s neat and organized world been shaken like this Soon he finds himself scrambling over Co. I don t like leaving bad reviews on Romance Class books but this one just didn t do it for me I felt the writing a little too simple and while it started okay at the end I didn t like Gio and how easily he was forgivenI also think the I make up stories about my life thing isn t emphasized enough

    Cute little contemporary romance I really enjoyed being transported to Boracay it’s been so long since I’ve been actually and the story itself wasn’t necessarily anything too new but it was still adorable

    The first time I went to the island of Boracay in the Philippines ended in some sort of disaster and I haven't really recorded over that memory yet To the uninformed my month old phone took a dip in the saltwater on our last day at the beach so the last few hours on the island was kind of stressful Not to mention that moment where I thought I was going to drown at Ariel's Point while I was snorkeling and that it was rainy half the time It

    review can also be found on my blog Another great thing about this book is that it promotes Philippine Tourism You'll love how the author put in all these Filipino elements the island of Boracay Calmansi Muffins and so much and how it makes you want to travel the Philippines whether you're from here and have been under a rock for so long or even if you're from other countries There's just that big travel bug
