Sara's Review: The Kiss Quotient by Helen Hoang
REVIEWER PURCHASE PUBLISHER: Dreamscape Media, LLC
NARRATOR: Carly Robins RELEASED: June 5, 2018 GENRE: CONTEMPORARY ROMANCE LENGTH: 9 hours and 36 minutes FORMAT: EBOOK, PAPERBACK, AUDIBLE
A heartwarming and refreshing debut novel that proves one thing: there's not enough data in the world to predict what will make your heart tick.
Stella Lane thinks math is the only thing that unites the universe. She comes up with algorithms to predict customer purchases — a job that has given her more money than she knows what to do with, and way less experience in the dating department than the average thirty-year-old.
It doesn't help that Stella has Asperger's and French kissing reminds her of a shark getting its teeth cleaned by pilot fish. Her conclusion: she needs lots of practice — with a professional. Which is why she hires escort Michael Phan. The Vietnamese and Swedish stunner can't afford to turn down Stella's offer, and agrees to help her check off all the boxes on her lesson plan — from foreplay to more-than-missionary position...
Before long, Stella not only learns to appreciate his kisses, but to crave all the other things he's making her feel. Soon, their no-nonsense partnership starts making a strange kind of sense. And the pattern that emerges will convince Stella that love is the best kind of logic... FIVE BOUNDLESS STARS
This book had so many 5-star rating I had to give it a shot. Who knew reading about a woman with Asperger's would be so sweet, funny, and make me smile the entire time. Not to mention there were some pretty steamy sexy times when I wasn’t laughing. I loved the premise behind this book, and I loved the characters, but especially Stella. She had a childlike honesty that isn’t found in most adults. It was refreshing. Weird but refreshing. I have already pre-ordered Hoang's next book, The Bride Test which is set in this same world. I love her voice and this unique POV she writes from. It shows that people with a disability like Asperger's and autism can find love too. It is brilliant, and I am giving The Kiss Quotient 5 Huge Boundless stars.
