A Stand-alone Novel from the BESTSELLING Kpop romance series.
Corrine Miller-Hayden has a secret. As captain of the cheer team and a Texas beauty queen, she wouldn’t dare tell anyone about her closet K-pop music obsession.
That is, until she runs into her Minji, her ultimate bias, at a fan gathering. She never dreamed she’d touch Minji, let alone accidentally take his phone.
When they meet again at a pep-rally, it’s not like Corrine imagined. She thought she’d be showing off, but instead she becomes the target of a dye-filled water balloon attack. Abby was supposed to be her best friend, not the girl who openly shamed her in front of the whole school.
Minji saves her, not only from embarrassment, but from her own stuck-up self.
Can she love Minji openly, and keep her fangirling a secret?
4 stars — OK, I’m totally reading these backwards, but I don’t even care. I just had to dive into another of these K-Pop romances because they’re so cute and fun. And this one felt really different from Kidnapped Idol too! Less danger and villains, more of an authentic YA feel with some Korean flare.
Before I go further, can I just say I liked the old cover better? This one feels…sexier or something. The old one had a more cute YA feel somehow.
OK, cover aside, I loved this one too. It was fun, and the romance was freaking on point!! That was the highlight for me for sure. I loved Corrine and Minji even more than Woon and Jemica!! I just really felt their chemistry, and I could feel the way their feelings developed. How Corrine went from a secret crush/obsession to really falling in love with the real Minji.
I was a bit worried that I wasn’t going to like Corrine. I mean, I liked her at first, but then a bit of her mean girl came out and I was disappointed, and I had a hard time judging her sincerity, but then I felt like I believed in her growth, you know? It’s kind of a weird life that she lived.
I will say that the friendship with Abby, and how that all played out didn’t work for me. I don’t think I really understood why Abby went that far, it was really really mean. I feel like as a reader I didn’t get enough to figure out how she could go that far in the prank, and so I had a harder time with how that worked out than Corrine did.
BUT, since I was so in love with Corrine and Minji, I didn’t care that much. If I didn’t have that adorable romance, I probably would have been more bothered by that side plot, but I’ll give it a pass. Seriously, the whole Galveston Island outing was like romance gold. LOVED IT!!
If you’re looking for something light and quick to read, that gives you good feelings, I definitely say give these a try. They’re a tiny bit cheesy, a little hard to believe, but at the same time really satisfying.
