Cello prodigy Jenny has one goal: to get into a prestigious music conservatory. When she meets mysterious, handsome Jaewoo in her uncle’s Los Angeles karaoke bar, it’s clear he’s the kind of boy who would uproot her careful plans. But in a moment of spontaneity, she allows him to pull her out of her comfort zone for one unforgettable night of adventure…before he disappears without a word.

Three months later, when Jenny and her mother arrive in South Korea to take care of her ailing grandmother, she’s shocked to discover that Jaewoo is a student at the same elite arts academy where she’s enrolled for the semester. And he’s not just any student. He’s a member of one of the biggest K-pop bands in the world—and he’s strictly forbidden from dating.

When a relationship means throwing Jenny’s life off the path she’s spent years mapping out, she’ll have to decide once and for all just how much she’s willing to risk for love.

I’ve really enjoyed the books I’ve read that are about k-pop (either trainees or idols) and so I was really looking forward to reading XOXO!

This was so fun and delightful. I loved the k-pop/idol aspect, and the friendships that Jenny made. I do feel like the story was missing something when it came to Jenny’s relationship with her mother. I was hoping for more between them by the end.

But I loved reading this. The romance was so sweet and cute, and the story was just so fun! Recommended!
