Utterly different and refreshing!
These words fit this book to a tee. I’m so glad I read it (and so glad it was a total bargain of 99p when it was on sale!)
Title: The Kiss Quotient
Author: Helen Hoang
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…
This book is a total 5 star read for me, no doubt about it.
There was nothing that I didn’t like. And that surprised me! Books that have ‘heartwarming’ in the description don’t normally float my boat but, oh my life, this book did!
Stella was a delight. I loved her. Absolutely adored her. Michael was every girls dream but in a totally understated way. His ability to see Stella for Stella and love Stella for just who she is made me love him even more….and don’t even get me started on his family!
The writing was top notch, the flow just right, it was funny, cute and oh so sweet but in a totally refreshing way.
