REVIEW: The Kiss Quotient by Helen Hoang


This book absolutely lives up to all the hype you've seen and I don't say that lightly. As a matter of fact, when I picked up this novel, I was doubtful because I'm cynical and thought it might just be BS but it wasn't, at all. It was the perfect poolside read for me. The romance was sweet and steamy and really just lovely--I loved every single on page moment with Michael and Stella--and every time I think about the way their story developed I just have to smile. I also loved the outside of their romance story of them. I was completely invested in who they were outside of their coupledom and enjoyed reading about their individual stories as much as reading about them together. And I superloved that this novel is an #ownvoices novel and that the author shared a little of her own experiences with autism in the author's note. 

You guys, splurge and buy this if you're looking for a novel that's full of all the good feels--you're going to find yourself smiling and laughing and swooning at this couple's romance...and if you're like me, you'll be on the look out for the next thing Helen Hoang writes. 



"This is such a fun read and it's also quite original and sexy and sensitive."--Roxane Gay, New York Times bestselling author

"Hoang's writing bursts from the page."--Buzzfeed

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 crave all of the other things he's making her feel. 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...
