The Bride Test by Helen Hoang⸺As a mixed-race girl living in the slums of Ho Chi Minh City, Esme Tran has always felt out of place. When the opportunity arises to come to America and meet a potential husband, she can’t turn it down, thinking this could be the break her family needs. Seducing Khai, however, doesn’t go as planned.

Wrapping this series up, Nothing More and Nothing Less is a story that tells us that we cannot always put everyone else on top when we have nothing more to give and we cannot give what was already taken from us. It was learning that believing we are supposed to live our happily ever after with our first love is a tragedy. Our choices will always let us find that spark of fire that will lead us to forever.
