The Couple and The Book…
Thanks to Michelle for having me over on her awesome blog! I am here today to talk about one of my favourite bookish couples. I picked the genre contemporary romance and will talk about the couple in Summer Haikus by SJ Pajonas. Summer Haikus is about main character Isa and her love interest Masa. Isa has planned the perfect summer in japan, but things change when she needs to run the family’s Tokyo business. Luckily her friend Masa is there to help her. I think Pajonas writes the best romances, these two characters are just so perfect for each other. Summer Haikus is one of my favourite contemporary romance books and Isa and Masa are one of my favourite bookish couples.
Why I love Isa and Masa so much is because they really get each other. There is this scene in the book where Masa gifts Isa coloured pens, which might seem like a weird gift, but it’s perfect for Isa. Isa is a planner and uses coloured pens in her planner. I love how thoughtful that gift is and it’s one of my favourite scenes in the book. It shows that they know each other so well and Masa buy those pens for Isa as he knows she likes them. Then there is the fact that they are good friends first before they become lovers. And they just are perfect for each other. The talk things through and don’t have many misunderstandings, they care for each other, understand each other and are there for each other.
Summary of my Summer Haikus review
Summer Haikus is such an awesome read and I fell completely in love with the story. This book is exactly what I am looking for in a romance. It had a great story, awesome characters and a setting I fell in love with. The characters were likeable and I liked how Isa her panic attacks were handled, very realistic. It’s a sweet friends to lovers romance, with a few hotter scenes as well. Isa and Masa are just perfect together and I liked those little gestures that showed they really got each other. The romance was well done and it felt realistic. The Tokyo setting was really done well and I could vividly imagine how it all looked. There is a lot of Japanese culture that is addressed in the story and I enjoyed learning more about Japan. If you are looking for a great romance book to read this summer, with focus on Japanese culture, I would certainly recommend you give Summer Haikus a try.
