Tina Chen and Blake Reynolds have been together for almost a year. In that time, they've grown closer on just about every front. The one exception? Blake's father has never let anything stop him. Tina's parents have never let anyone push them around. And they've never met.
That's about to change. But don't worry—fireworks are traditional at Chinese New Years.
Note: This is a short story (10,000 words) that follows Trade Me, happens about halfway through Hold Me and What Lies Between Me and You. It assumes that you've already read Trade Me. Points of view are split pretty evenly between Blake, Tina, and Adam Reynolds (Blake's father). I wouldn't say there are spoilers, but if you're gonna spend time in Adam's point of view, you'll learn stuff about him.
