About the Book
When investment banker Jessie Kim is laid off in a virtual meeting and then overhears why ("she's already being overpaid anyway for a woman" and "Asians are worker bees, not someone who can drum up new deals") she delivers an "eff you guys" speech and storms out.
After moving back home to Tennessee to live with her loving but meddling mother and father, she runs into her childhood nemesis--golden child Daniel Choi--at the local Asian grocery store. The smart, charming lawyer appears to have it all...while Jessie has nothing.
Jess begrudgingly accepts Daniel's help to relaunch her long abandoned Korean cooking YouTube channel: HANGUK HACKS, showcasing easy meal prep for busy professionals. But just as she discovers Daniel's life isn't as perfect as it seems and there's more to him than meets the eye, he shows up for a life-changing business opportunity, and their rivalry is back on . . .
