XOXO : Oh, Axie By texasbeerguide.com

Jennys never had much time for boys, K pop, or really anything besides her dream of being a professional cellist. But when she finds herself falling for a K pop idol, she has to decide whether their love is worth the risk. A modern forbidden romance wrapped in the glamorous and exclusive world of K pop, XOXO is perfect for fans of Jenny Han and Maurene Goo. Jenny didnt get to be an award winning, classically trained cellist without choosing practice over fun. That is, until the night she meets Jaewoo. Mysterious, handsome, and just a little bit tormented, Jaewoo is exactly the kind of distraction Jenny would normally avoid. And yet, she finds herself pulled into spending an unforgettable evening wandering Los Angeles with him on the night before his flight home to South Korea. With Jaewoo an ocean away, theres no use in dreaming of what could have been. But when Jenny and her mother move to Seoul to take care of her ailing grandmother, who does she meet at the elite arts academy shes just been accepted to? Jaewoo. Finding the dreamy stranger who swept you off your feet in your homeroom is one thing, but Jaewoo isnt just any student. Turns out, Jaewoo is a member of one of the biggest K pop bands in the world. And like most K pop idols, Jaewoo is strictly forbidden from dating anyone. When a relationship means not only jeopardizing her place at her dream music school but also endangering everything Jaewoos worked for, Jenny has to decide once and for all just how much shes willing to risk for love. XOXO is a new romance that proves chasing your dreams doesnt have to mean sacrificing your heart, from acclaimed author Axie Oh. XOXO : Oh, Axie

I’ll admit that one of the reasons I decided to read this is because I know ZERO about k pop and I was hoping I’d get some recommendations… which was pretty dumb because this is FICTION. *facepalm* I have to admit that I haven’t listened to any k pop because I don’t know where to start I wish XOXO were real because then I’d have a great place to begin my journey!Anyway, I know I’ve only given this two stars but that doesn’t mean it’s a bad book I did enjoy it, it just wasn’t anything particularly special I guess and there seemed to be some sloppy plot threads that were never tied in.So,I’m this you’ll meet Jenny Go (or Go Jenny?), her mum and grandma a bit, who lives in San Francisco and wants to be a professional cellist. Only her grandmother is ill so she ends up spending half of her junior year in Souel, supporting her mum (she’s a single mum) and getting to know her gran.I found it annoying that the blurb tells you immediately that Jaewoo, who she meets at a karaoke bar in San Francisco, is a k pop star. I mean, it was probably easy enough to guess but it made the first part feel as though you were just waiting for it to start properly. Oh, another thing that bothered me was the Tim jumps; they plan to go to Korea, and the next thing they’re arriving, even though months pass in between. I realise those months weren’t important to the story, but there could have been something to get to know Jenny a bit better and her relationship with her mum, which could have had some depth adding to it.It’s a great cast of characters in Korea though, and I liked them all, especially Jaewoo and Sori, Jenny’s roommate. It was rather formulaic and the HEA seemed a bit too far fetched but… it’s that kind of book!I would have liked a bit about the music and their crazy school, and how k pop stars debut and all those kinds of things, but it boiled down to a pretty run of the mill love story with those things as a sort of interesting background wash since it was what made the book original, I wanted of it!Anyway, not a bad book, I just hoped for a bit culture and an introduction to k pop! (As well as some about Jenny’s playing; I do know about classical music and that would have been fun too!). But it’s an easy, feel good read; I probably just expected too much.And now I still need someone to introduce me to k pop… 0063024993 I loved this book. I can and will re read it. I'm totally into kpop and K drama and this book covers it all. It would make a great k drama. Fantastic author.Not going to give spoilers 😉 0063024993 I just got mine in the mail and pages were bent and slightly damaged 0063024993 I absolutely loved this book, the romance and the highly competitive and musically talented pupils are just brilliant. I loved how it’s set in both America and Seoul and how the differences between Americans values and Korea’s values come as a complete shock to the main love interest, and how this becomes not just a tug of war between what she wants, love and friendship and also her career as a cellist but also between the attitudes surrounding K Pop idols and their status as a one single group. It’s like a Romeo and Juliet Esque story just without the (death scene) also just to warn you the mention of food will make your tummy rumble. Get this lovely book now you won’t regret it. 0063024993
