My Review

I received a free copy from the author through Booksprout and voluntarily reviewed it.

Dating a Music God is the fifth book in the series and follows a xian and an Asian music god as they fall in love. The two meet on the jinx dating app and after a hot night together they both realize they want more.

I’ve been enjoying this series and had gun reading this one. It’s light and low on the drama. I liked these two together. I did feel this book hooked me a bit less than the previous ones. I think this is partly due to the one night stand trope, of which I am not a big fan. I just felt things developed quite quickly and while it all made sense and their connection was clear, it’s just not my favorite set up. I did like reading about these two and the supermarket scene was so fun! I also liked how things got resolved at the end.

The music focus in this book was interesting and I liked there were some scenes involving music and it was clear music is very important for both of them. I would’ve liked to know a bit more what Chiguo’s music god powers entailed. Or how to pronounce his name. I don’t know a lot about mythology and had hoped there would be a bit more about the Asian gods and their powers and significance, but there wasn’t as much about that. There was a note at the back of the book that one of the gods that made an appearance with five dragons will get her own book and I am curious about that one.

To summarize: This was another fun read in this series. I liked these two together and reading about them. I especially liked the supermarket scene, that one was so fun to read! I am not a fan of the one night stand trope and due to that set up I enjoyed this one a bit less than previous books. Things developed quite quickly. Their connection was clear and I did like reading about them. The wrap up at the end was well done too. I had hoped to read more about Chiguo’s music god powers as well as about the Asian gods and mythology in general, but there wasn’t as much about that as I had hoped. Overall it’s a fun series so far and I look forward to the next book!

    • Like you I don’t usually like the one night stand trope. It was still a decent read, but not my favorite in the series. It was a fun pair up.
