China Rich Girlfriend
On the eve of her wedding to Nicholas Young, heir to one of the greatest fortunes in Asia, Rachel should be over the moon. She has a flawless Asscher-cut diamond from JAR, a wedding dress she loves more than anything found in the salons of Paris, and a fiance willing to sacrifice his entire inheritance in order to marry her. But Rachel still mourns the fact that her birthfather, a man she never knew, won’t be able to walk her down the aisle. Until: a shocking revelation draws Rachel into a world of Shanghai splendor beyond anything she has ever imagined. Here we meet Carlton, a Ferrari-crashing bad boy known for Prince Harry-like antics; Colette, a celebrity girlfriend chased by fevered paparazzi; and the man Rachel has spent her entire life waiting to meet: her father. Meanwhile, Singapore’s It Girl, Astrid Leong, is shocked to discover that there is a downside to having a newly minted tech billionaire husband. A romp through Asia’s most exclusive clubs, auction houses, and estates, China Rich Girlfriendbrings us into the elite circles of Mainland China, introducing a captivating cast of characters, and offering an inside glimpse at what it’s like to be gloriously, crazily, China-rich.
I read and enjoyed Crazy Rich Asians a few years ago, and I had to see the movie adaptation when it came out. Right after my best friend and I saw the movie (which was fantastic), I knew that I had to read the rest of the series! Fortunately my BFF loaned me this book, and I started to read it almost as soon as I got home from the movie theatre.
This book was so fun! It also made me so hungry – there were so many descriptions of delicious food! I really enjoyed reading this and getting to spend time with characters I remembered from Crazy Rich Asians (especially Astrid!). And I was very excited for Rachel and Henry’s wedding!
This book was just as fun as Crazy Rich Asians and now I can’t wait to read the third book in the series, Rich People Problems.
