Dealing with business problems and a romantic betrayal leaves Diahann Marshall frustrated. Her sister suggests she order takeout and feast on a handsome delivery boy, but Diahann doesn?t expect the restaurant?s owner to show up at her door.
Sun Li believes in a strong work ethic, it?s why he delivers Chinese food when his employees are sick. Meeting lovely customers is a plus, but when Sun realizes Diahann thinks he is a lowly delivery boy he is determined to help save her ice cream parlor, and win her heart.
All Diahann needed was no strings attached sex to get over the betrayal of finding out her long term boyfriend was married. So what better way than to seduce the sexy Chinese take-out driver she just meet a few hours earlier?
I like the fact that although Sun and Diahann seem so different they really have a lot in common. Both of them are so devoted to seeing their family's businesses succeed they have little time for their own personal lives. Little did they know by indulging themselves on a sexual escapade they would also be beginning a great business partnership.
Although this story has some dry spots there are other scenes that were quite interesting. I especially liked the fact that after Sun found out that she was a part owner in Marshal’s he wanted to figure out a way to help both his restaurant and hers at the same time. Unfortunately one of the dry spots is the beginning of the story so keep that in mind and don't stop!! It will get better.
This story also offered a variety of supporting characters. Diahann’s sister, Dee has a quirky sense of humor that definitely entertained me. I also liked Chet’s incredible desire to do as little as possible like many young adults. I was happy to discover that Dee and Chet will be having a story as well. I am sure it will be a fun one, just like this was.
If you enjoy interracial relationships with good, interesting and fun characters this may be the story for you.
