Publisher's Summary

The fabulous new novel from the best-selling author of Crazy Rich Asians

When Lucy Tang Churchill meets George Zao at a lavish Capri wedding, she can’t stand him. He’s a mama’s boy. A self-righteous eco-warrior. A brooding weirdo that takes himself much too seriously. And no-one should look that good in tight white Speedos.

Worried about what her Mayflower-descended, Wall Street-wealthy family might think of this Hong Kong surfer boy, Lucy returns to the safety of Manhattan’s Upper East Side. So when she meets Cecil, a suave billionaire more concerned with his Instagram account than the planet, she thinks she’s found the perfect way to forget that moonlit night.

Beneath the lobster ravioli, Valentino bikinis, mega-yachts and Park Avenue apartments lurks the horror of the ‘informal’ dress code and the fear that someone, somewhere, is drinking a better vintage Champagne. 

Gloriously decadent and wildly romantic, Sex and Vanity is a delicious satire on the grandest of scales.

Okay as a follow-up

Smashed through this one as it was an easy read. Characters weren't as engaging as the CRA series and a little less likeable.
Interesting portrayal of internalised racism.
As an Australian, I struggled listening to the 'Australian' accent.

Boring, predictable, vapid

Lacks the charm of Crazy rich Asians. More like a trashy Danielle Steele novel. Disappointing.

Funny again but too far

Enjoyed the other books this one is good but has a few too many twists of crazy which starts to spoil the experience of the light hearted story

you could skip this

it's not as good or interesting as the Crazy Rich Asians trilogy. A bit disappointing- I feel like he is running out of "stories".
