An Ali Review: Lunar New Love by Casper Graham

Standard
Rating: 2 out of 5 stars

Vincent Yang is thankful to David, his best friend, for being a nosy matchmaker. David introduces him to Anthony Lim, and there’s an instant attraction and chemistry between them. Not only is Anthony good-looking and sexy, the man is also the successful owner of a popular bakery. Vincent agrees to a date with Anthony without any hesitation.

One date leads to another, and before he knows it, the two of them are officially together. They have so much in common, especially when they find out about both their respective families being less than pleased about their sexual orientation. Their relationships with their families take a turn for the worse a few days before Lunar New Year. Now, both of them have no families to celebrate the holiday with. It’s both heart-breaking and stressful.

Can Vincent and Anthony’s relationship survive the holiday season?

I am always looking for new to me authors so I decided to give this a try.  I was excited to see that the main characters were people of color.  Once I started reading it though, the book didn’t really work.  The writing style was not for me.  I had a very hard time connecting to either of the MC’s and I was not feeling the connection between them. I wasn’t really sure what they saw in each other.
I appreciated the Asian characters and the Lunar New Year holiday as fresh topics for a romance story but unfortunately nothing else about this book worked for me.
Cover art:  The cover is average.  The models on the cover due match the book’s descriptions of the characters but overall it doesn’t really stand out.
