Part love story, part race-relations study. Raymond is a Chinese American, raised in San Francisco's Chinatown and is head of a college minority relations program. Aurora is half Caucasian, half Japanese, raised in a white neighborhood. When Asian Americans date, does race matter? And how much of race matters? Are you part Asian, then part datee? These questions and more like them are explored with a humorous voice. Enjoyable, though some points are hard to comprehend if there is no racial diversity in your community.

Started out really well but I must admit that I got antsy with it midway through. Some nice erotic dialogue.

By page 50 I was still trying to care about the characters...I gave up at that point.
