Kaceey’s Review:

For the love of donuts!🍩🍩🍩

Jasmine has worked in her parents donut shop for… well, her whole life.  Even now, after college Jasmine is still expected to spend all her remaining time helping her parents run the store. As the daughter of immigrant parents, the responsibilities and expectations of her were enormous. Her own dreams, wishes and needs take a backseat. 

After a chance reunion with a previous college crush, Jasmine’s hopes for a real chance at happiness are re-ignited. Fingers crossed her family will accept him.🤞 

Totally loved the premise for this book. As a daughter of an Immigrant parent I completely understood the extra pressures Jasmine faced. I just would have liked to have felt her struggle to come into her own a bit more.   

The romance also was a bit lacking.  I didn’t feel the chemistry between Jasmine and her new beau. It came off as an awkward romance.🤷🏻‍♀️ 

This is definitely a contemporary, women’s fiction novel.  But I’d be hard pressed to classify it as romance. Just my opinion.  There are many reviews that felt the 💞 that I missed. 

Thank you to libro.fm
