Blasian Lit Thread #21

A Sweet Love Like Ours by Hayden Ash
The first time Japanese-American Akio Natari saw beautiful African-American Gloria Johnson, it was love at first sight, at least for him. Yet, Gloria fights the attraction between the two, the pain from her husbands' death binding her to the past as she fears the heartache of such horror touching her ever again. Yet, when she finally succumbs to Akio's love the anger from their respective families causes a rift to tear the two apart that may never be mended.

The Space Between by Victoria H. Smith
When Drake started the night at his father’s campaign fundraiser, he never imagined he’d end it being conned into buying drugs on the West Side. Losing high-stakes poker has its consequences, but he’d repeatedly face them just to hear Lacey Douglas sing. Drake sees Lacey light up the stage, and he has to have her. But his intentions for being on her side of town turn out to be the reason he can’t.

Chicago native Lacey has dreams of the opera, but life has its obstacles. Lacey has come to know her hardships as part of living in the real world and accepts them fully. When Lacey meets the intense and invigorating Drake, a fire is lit inside her, unleashing those dreams again.

Two paths that should have never crossed prove to create the exact pairing the other needs. But when their worlds take time to catch up, everything they have is tested. Finding the space between the two sides that challenge them will be hard, but it’s the only place that will keep them together.

The Space Between is a new adult contemporary romance.

Unexpected by Sarah G.
Noel Wright is stuck in Sin City, in a rut doing the same things and seeing the same people every day until a sexy stranger ordering dessert—and not just that on the menu—turns Noel’s predictable world upside down.

Kai, a member of a popular Korean pop group lives a charmed and glamorous life, surrounded by everything he could ever want and yet he feels empty and stuck. A chance meeting at a local casino diner sets his ordered world careening happily out of control as a luscious, full-figured waitress sends his closed heart into a tailspin.

When these two complete opposites meet, worlds collide and sparks fly and the world of K-Pop will never be the same again. But will a meddling uncle, an unforgiving public, a secret admirer, a jealous friend, and Kai’s unruly group mates bring the couple together or ultimately tear them apart?

A Rose In The Desert: Snapshot Memories by Nairobi K.
If you had a camera and you could capture the perfect moment with only limited time, would you try to capture the whole story or only the best parts? After all, its only the best moments that remain in your memory forever. This is a snapshot series of memories capturing the naughty moments, the forbidden romances, the unrequited love, and the laughter in between in a random, unsorted collection of Blasian love stories.

Comment: We're seeing nicer covers, this may be the one thread with the prettiest covers yet. And I see someone finally made the K-pop star falls for Black woman trope a work of fiction with "Unexpected". I haven't read any of the books on here but I just might.

Thanks to all of you who send book recommendations. Please keep them coming!


  1. Yea, the covers are stepping up in terms of quality. My favourite one is 'The Space Between'.

  2. Yep! These covers show people being enthused, seductive and romantic. Very convincing covers.

  3. I'm really impressed! Wow! Look at the improvement! And yes...though I generally avoid these type of books, I'm much more tempted this time to buy one. A good cover can do wonders!!!

    1. Mad props on the cover. Who came up with that?

    2. Hey! It was actually my cover artist who found the picture and did the design. I couldn't have been more happy with the end result. Thanks for the cover love!!! Oh, her name is Sarah and her studio is called Okay Creations. Wonderful work. :)

  5. Yes yes yes! Beautiful covers, now all that left is more books with Blasian themes that are not romance or erotica.
