From #1 New York Times bestselling author Rachel Van Dyken comes a standalone new adult romance set in the competitive world of K-pop.
It's not all K-dramas and happily ever afters.
Intern with Korea's number one record label? Yes, please.
Find out there's a huge scandal I need to help "manage"... not so much.
Add in the fact that I don't recognize the "superstars" of the label and think they're interns...
And my dream job quickly becomes more of a nightmare.
But I'm in Seoul, the one place that is beginning to feel more and more like home...
Except it isn't home, and the drama surrounding the biggest K-pop group in the world, SWT, is consuming my every moment.
Spoiler alert. They hate me.
Everything I do is wrong: wrong clothes, wrong honorifics, wrong manners.
Till the leader of SWT takes pity on me.
But pity is dangerous when it comes from someone as beautiful as him.
Every SWT member is gorgeous, perfect, and cultivated to be an idol... lethal to a girl's heart.
But fame plus a perfect face and voice don't equal an easy life. As their comeback nears, the stakes rise higher.
All I want to do is survive.
But the price for survival might mean losing my heart.
And like a character in a K-drama, I'm not sure if there will be an actual happily ever after...
Or simply a lesson learned.
My Summer in Seoul by Rachel Van Dyken takes readers into the world of K-pop and all it entails. Grace is excited to intern in South Korea and work with one of the biggest groups around. But things do not go as planned and now she is maneuvering around a world she does not know and yet, she is determined. I loved that about her. In regard to the group, it was interesting to learn about this world I knew nothing about and the consuming passion for it. And Grace’s perseverance on doing what she could drove this story so much. The band put her through the ringer for sure. Though they were not always the nicest, I loved all the band members and learning about them. They did not take it easy on her and it was interesting seeing who the love interest would be. This was a slow burn enemies to lovers story, it was emotional, touching and captivating. I loved it and highly recommend it.
