Review: The Kiss Quotient

Book Review: The Kiss Quotient, by Helen Hoang, 5 stars


It's high time for Stella Lane to settle down and find a husband - or so her mother tells her. This is no easy task for a wealthy, successful woman like Stella, who also happens to have Asperger's. Analyzing data is easy; handling the awkwardness of one-on-one dates is hard. To overcome her lack of dating experience, Stella decides to hire a male escort to teach her how to be a good girlfriend.
Faced with mounting bills, Michael decides to use his good looks and charm to make extra cash on the side. He has a very firm no repeat customer policy, but he's tempted to bend that rule when Stella approaches him with an unconventional proposal.
The more time they spend together, the harder Michael falls for this disarming woman with a beautiful mind, and Stella discovers that love defies logic.

Genre: contemporary romance

Publication date: June 2018

Mature content: yes

Review: The Kiss Quotient is a totally addictive book. It hooks you from page one and you just can't stop reading it until the very end. I loved everything, from the characters to the plot and, more importantly, the general message of the story: that no matter how imperfect you are (or, more accurately, how imperfect you think you are), there's always someone out there just perfect for you.

And Stella and Michael are just perfect for each other, no matter all the obstacles they have to overcome - Stella's issues, her parents' pressure for her to marry, Michaels socially inappropriate second job, his mother's illness, and a lot of other twists and turns you will find out if you read The Kiss Quotient.

The secondary characters are great too, especially Michael's crazy but loving family. The sex scenes, however, are pretty explicit - so if this bothers you, sadly, The Kiss Quotient may not be for you. If you're Ok with that or if you can pass those pages up, this is a book you definitely shouldn't miss. 

Happy readings,
