Review by Hibiscus

Taniea is dumped by her boyfriend for being too bold, too aggressive and too mouthy. Throwing herself into her new job she traveled to China and met Michael Shen. She convinced him that a fling while she was in his country would be time well spent for them both. Would two weeks of Taniea be too much for Michael to handle or will he leave everything he knows to have a thousand more with her?

Asian Spice is an intriguing tale of different cultures and standard stereotypes. We have Taniea Onxy, a young black woman who is climbing her way to the top of the corporate ladder in the automobile industry. Her boyfriend, DeMarcus Green, is very insecure. He breaks up with Taniea due to his belief that a man should make more money than a woman. I believe Taniea is better off without a man who believes in the stereotype of the little woman being dependent on a man.

Taniea believes she is having a terrible day until she discovers she is given the opportunity to be head of training at a new plant in Indiana and will travel to China for her training. I love how she jumps on this chance to prove that she is able to handle anything thrown at her. When she goes to China, she has a personal escort from the company to help her while she is there. That person is Michael Shen.

Michael is gorgeous. He would be my cup of tea and I know he was definitely Taniea’s. He is not intimidated by Taniea in any way. Michael jumps on the opportunity to have a no strings affair with her. Micheal is very conscientious. He never shirks his responsibilities as escort, and he frequently reminds Taniea through the story that he is being watched to make sure he preforms his duties.

As the days went by, I felt the love growing between Michael and Taniea. I enjoyed how they showed respect for each other throughout the story. Taniea deals with Michael’s old girlfriend when she appears and causes problems. I knew then, that Taniea was serious about how she felt for Micheal. When she had to leave China, my heart broke for these two lovers.

I enjoyed this captivating story of love across the miles. I wanted to read more about Michael and Taniea and their future. Asian Spice definitely had what it takes to spice up my day.
