Senior biologist Trish Sakai is ready for a change from her wild, flirtatious behavior. So Trish creates three simple rules from First and Second Corinthians and plans to follow them to the letter. No more looking at men as possible dates, especially non-Christians. Second, tell others about Christ. And third, she will persevere in hardship by relying on God. And just to make sure she behaves, she enlists the help of her three cousins, Lex, Venus and Jennifer, the only Christians in their large extended family. But Trishs dangerously tempting ex-boyfriend, Kazuo the artist, keeps popping up at all the wrong moments, and her grandmother, who has her eye on his family money, keeps trying to push the two of them back together again. Then theres Spencer, the hunky colleague at work who keeps turning Trishs thoughts in the wrong direction. It just isnt fair! Shes trying so hard, but instead of being Gods virtuous woman, shes going nuts trying to stand firm against two hunky guys. Trish thought following her three rules would be a cinch, but suddenly those simple rules dont seem so simple after all.

Sushi Series Book 2
Trish Sakai wants to show the cousins, who are also her best friends, she let down that she's serious about being a better Christian. She'll get her Divinity degree and volunteer at church more, that should do it. When things are going wrong lately she's sure it's punishment from God for her sins the past year. Changing isn't so easy though when her grandma keeps trying to get her back together with her irresistible non-Christian ex-boyfriend.
This book has some real life situations that are pretty intense and yet mixed with humor. It shows the struggle to understand forgivenessÃÂ and that you can't earn it from God. And that sometimes even when we change there're consequences to our past that follow us but we must move forward, excepting God's grace.
This series starts with Sushi for One? and then book 1.1, The Sushi Toss, which is a short, free read on Camy Tang's blog. Book three is Venus's tale in Single Sashimi and finishes with Jennifer in Weddings and Wasabi. A unique series worth reading.
William Keley5 Stars Out Of 5March 24, 2009William KeleySushi for one is like the invention of the airplane, Only Uni would be the jet. Wow!!! This book is a grand slam. You know the characters from Sushi for one, so you almost feel like family. But the reality and the testimony power of the what is shared here, this is why the Lord gave us the written language
S. Harricharan5 Stars Out Of 5February 26, 2009S. HarricharanTrish Sakai is a character who leapt off the page and straight into my heart. There were so many ways I could identify with her. First, how her life seemed to keep throwing these horrible twists at her, yet she had support from her cousins and God. In spite of her apartment situation, her new resolution to only date Christian men, her roommates carelessness causes her to be evicted and Trish reluctantly puts this new worry directly into Gods hands. The answer that comes also brings along new challenges, but I loved how she was able to put her faith out there, put her trust out there, and really, truly believe. The most fun thing I loved about Only Uni was the cousins. Together, Trish included, there are four of them. They couldnt be more different, more unique, but they bring the term sisterhood to new levels. There is definitely a great portrayal of girlpower fueled by God. I loved the open honesty of her cousins and how they kept Trish on track and accountable in her new lifestyle changes. The different personalities add so much flavor that made this book play out like a movie inside my head. Definitely at the top of my recommended reads! Best of all, was the end! I wont spoil it for anyone, but I will say this. Trish is a character that only grows closer to the reader with every page. Her life becomes real, the situation of her heart and her personal relationship with God grow more intense as the story progresses. She inspired me to do some deeper thinking on my side as well and I found I had questions like her, but now I know there are answers. When a book can do this, its more than worth the reading. Im bugging the rest of my girlfriends to read it now, because Trish becomes real in the hardships, pain and struggles where God slowly draws her out, on top. This is an amazing and truly powerful read and now I cannot wait to read the next book!
Sarah Katie5 Stars Out Of 5February 6, 2009Sarah KatieAfter reading Camys first book in the Sushi series i was looking forward to more! In Sushi for One Trish Sakai is definitely not a likable person, I had no idea how Camy could possibly make me like her. But Camy Tang can and did! I think i actually enjoyed Only Uni more than Sushi for One. The story picks right back up and I felt as if I had never left the world of the Sakai cousins. You, as the reader, can really see the changes in Trishs attitude and her increasing faith in God. I cant wait to pick up the next book!
Livvie5 Stars Out Of 5February 5, 2009LivvieWhat I love about Camy Tang's style of writing is that she takes real life issues and writes about them in a realistic "This Is Life" way. This is the second novel of the Sushi series, and I enjoyed this almost as much as I enjoyed Lex's Story. Trish really grows up in so many ways, and you do get to find out more about Lex/Aiden (so many authors tend to ignore the first book!). Do you need to read Sushi for One first? No - not necesarily, but it would make you more appreciative of Only Uni if you did!!
