K-Pop's bad boy, Cho Tae-Hyung, has kept a low profile since his last scandal threatened to derail his whole career. Back on tour with his bandmates, the K-pop Second Gen group, Talisman, he's more than willing to make amends with the fans in Korea and Internationally. However, scandals seem to follow him even when he tries to lead a quiet life. Every new headline about Tae-Hyung threatens to keep him away from the only woman he's ever loved. Seok Sarah is ready to move on from Spencer Choi. The British Korean model is everything she wanted on paper. However, Sarah's heart gravitates toward Tae-Hyung, constantly replaying memories of their erotic entanglements. To escape the aftermath of the disaster she created, Sarah moves to Seoul to open a Tour Guide Start-up with none other than Tae-Hyung. And to make matters worse, a visit from Spencer threatens to expose her and change how people see her.


I give BEGIN AGAIN ⭐⭐⭐⭐!

I remember when I was a fan of New Kids on the Block and my friends and I would pretend which band member was our pretend boyfriend. My sister always took Jordon, my friend took Joey, and soon Jon, Mark, and Donnie were taken. Sorry, Danny. So when I got the opportunity to read a K-pop romance I was like, yeah, the right stuff! 🙂

The author does a wonderful job making this a light and fun romance. The characters are likable and the struggle between the two love birds feels real. I do like that the love interest for the boy band Romeo is also a successful model. This seems more believable than him meeting Jane Doe, who works at a coffee shop, and falling in love. With that said, I do feel it was too easy for the two heroes to work it out. I wanted more strife. But that could just be me.

Overall, if you're a fan of K-pop or have someone in your life who’s a K-pop fan then you found a fun read. Be sure to order your copy today and also read all the other books in the series.
