My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Caution: Do not read if you’re even a tiny bit hungry. Lin’s descriptions of food are mouthwatering and make me crave what the characters are eating. Short of reading a food blog or receipt book, you’ll want to order in these foods.
Going Public is complex with just the right amount of twists and turns to keep me on the edge of my seat. Ray and Elvin are great characters. I love how neither are perfect and their flaws are dealt with head on. Elvin’s family is lovely and, even with several siblings, each has a distinct personality.
If you’re a fan of the opposites attract trope, you’re going to love this book. Elvin and Ray’s differences are a point of contention, more so for Elvin, that is just one issue these character face in their relationship.
Other tropes you’ll find: one bed, forced proximity, workplace romance, boss-employee romance….Going Public has EVERYTHING. I doubt any reader won’t be able to find something to love about it.
