Bucket List To Love
Travelling to beautiful places is one of most people’s bucket list item. In this romantic love story, the heroine travels to a foreign place (Japan) to study, yet she accidentally fell in love. Here’s an excerpt from the book:
Aya Contreras is thrilled to be studying in the land of sakura and sushi. Tokyo is a fascinating city to live in-vending machines, cosplayers, karaoke boxes, and bright, colourful conbinis on every corner. And the architectural design program she’s in is everything she dreamed it to be. The only problem? Her tutor doesn’t seem to like her. Well, she doesn’t like him very much either. Sure, Ryohei Mori is talented, and there’s no denying he’s hot. But he’s also surly, bossy know-it-all who eats too many cookies. Another annoying thing about him is he’s nosy. And when he stumbles upon the crazy bucket list Aya sister’s forced on her, he teases her mercilessly about it. But when their professor pairs them up for a design competition, things get…interesting. Fueled by beer and a whole lot of cookies, can Aya and Ryo cross out some items on her bucket list without killing each other? Or will they realize there’s much more to each other that they’d originally thought?
