The Art of Falling in Love with You

Perfect for fans of One True Loves, Crazy Rich Asians, P.S. I Still Love You (To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before), this sweet contemporary romance novel follows a love triangle between a girl who hides her past with bright smiles and two swoonworthy boys who deeply love her, but only one who loves her right.

Lydia Zhang finally achieved all she ever wanted. She has her very own art studio and holds an art class there three times a week. With her best friend Isabel Wong, and her boyfriend of three years, Reed Wang, by her side, nothing can be more perfect in Lia’s life. But when Reed is a candidate for the new editorial director position at his publishing company, he ends up spending less and less time with her.

Lia finds herself building a newfound friendship and confiding in the boy-next-door (more like boy-next-door-building), Connor Li, a chef teaching cooking classes at the SW Youth Center. Soon Lia’s heart is torn between the love of her life and whatever is going on between her new neighbor friend that is just a friend, right?

Editorial Reviews

"A sweetly engaging love triangle tale."

"Both Reed, with his flashy car and presents of roses and jewelry, and Connor, with his sensitive nature and gift for food, are appealing love interests—and the dynamics Lia shares with each, and with her spitfire best friend, Isa, are worthy of any of the Chinese television dramas the hero loves to watch."

- Kirkus Reviews
"Jaeon has a good feel for characterization and pacing..."

"A. A. Jaeon’s promising debut novel, THE ART OF FALLING IN LOVE WITH YOU, is not short of dilemmas and will-she-won’t-she hijinks that unfold in a voice that is clear, vivid and forthright."
