Be Careful What You Wish For by C.P Santi
Wishes are very powerful . . . and they can sometimes be dangerous.
When Ana made a birthday wish to fall in love, she was specifically thinking of her research colleague Daniel Sato . . . she wasn't exactly expecting to cross paths with hunky actor Ken Nakamura.
Be careful what you wish for—Fate always answers—even if it isn't exactly the answer we were hoping for

My Rating: 4 out of 5
I love josei manga! And Be Careful What You Wish For reminded me of josei manga. The story is a classic geek and famous guy plot and, to be honest, I was disappointed at how I could easily put it down and forget about it for months. But I’m truly happy that I pick it up again.
I unenthusiastically start reading from the beginning again, but after passing 20% of the story my interest doubled, and by fifty percent I nearly go around the apartment with the kindle on my hand. Though I was a bit disoriented that most of the inner thoughts were not italics, the rest was okay. The narrating was really nice, the pace is perfect. I also love all the Japanese phrases inserted in the paragraph. After reading manga and watching anime for years, I picked up a lot of Japanese words, so it didn’t hinder me from enjoying the story, in fact, it made the whole book very exotic, very Japanese like. I can really see and feel the Japanese culture in this book.
I don’t have much to say about the book except I really liked it. Ana made me like and dislike her, same goes to Ken. Their relationship toward the end annoyed me. I didn’t like how they kept on repeating that their relationship was still a fake even when they already cleared the misunderstanding. But that’s how they are. My favorite character here is Yoshi and (surprise!) Ai! Yes, I really like Ai. I have a thing for liking villains something when the heroine annoyed me haha :D
If you’re in the mood for wholesome romance, give this book a try.
