So We Meet Again
Pub Date: 8/3/21
Happy Release Day!
This book started in the investment banking cutthroat industry where Jess Kim does all of her work impeccably and works 80+ hours a week (can you do that?). I would die. So when the company is going through cutbacks they keep the bros that use her good work as their own and tell her she doesn’t have leadership material, gag. How frustrating as a woman in the business world, it’s so relatable.
This book starts to open up when she moves back with her parents and she connects with a middle school rival. He tries to help her with a entrepreneur idea she has and her relationship with her parents through it made me so happy and brought tears to my eyes.
I loved the ideas she has and my husband would definitely be watching these videos and using these supplement kits (I’m not much of a cook, I like to bake).
Beware do not read when you are hungry the food descriptions are very yummy!
The romance in this book kept me on the edge and super happy. They kept getting so close but outside factors kept getting in the way. Her school mate with the bowl cut now the very handsome successful lawyer but it’s always been a competition. Eek loved it!
Thank you @avonbooks and @netgalley for the e-ARC for my honest and voluntary review.

When up-and-coming investment banker Jess Kim is passed over for a promotion, 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 of the building. Not sure what’s next, she moves back home to Tennessee with her domineering Korean mom, who tries to set her up with her pastor’s son Daniel Choi, an M&A lawyer by day and a successful video game streamer by night. Turns out he’s swoony and smart, not the awkward preacher’s kid she remembers. With his help, Jess launches a Korean cooking YouTube channel focused on easy meal prep for busy professionals.
All is going well until her mom walks on the show mid-live recording and argues about cooking technique. While she hates being berated by her mother in front of the world, it actually works in their favor—they go viral!
Soon her cooking channel becomes an actual media company and brand. When a client is suddenly interested in buying Jess out, she finds herself sitting across the table from the very investment firm she quit not so long ago. But there’s just one other problem: Daniel, the guy whose been helping her and that she’s been falling for, is the firm’s new general counsel.
