🌴This past week I went on a 7 day cruise to celebrate my 25th Birthday! One of the books I brought along with me was The Kiss Quotient by Helen Hoang. This really was the perfect vacation read! I did not want to put it down. I carried it with me everywhere we went on the ship hoping for some down time that would allow me to sneak a peak at what happens next. I loved everything about this book. The author even included some resources at the end of the book on autism spectrum disorder that I’m looking forward to checking out in the near future. This was Helen Hoang’s debut novel and I’m looking forward to more of her work! (Also, I’m lowkey fangirling because she commented on my initial post about vacation reads telling me to enjoy my trip 🤗)
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...
