The Kiss Quotient - Helen Hoang

Goodreads Book Blurb:

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…

My Review:

enjoyable/easy to read:
3/5
3.5 stars, rounded down.

I should’ve gone to bed hours ago but I couldn’t until I finished this book.

Everything you’d want in a trashy paperback romance with a nice ASD twist. I loved that Stella’s autism wasn’t the focus but it was there. She couldn’t turn it on and off to suit the storyline and at no point did Michael treat her or think of her differently because of it.

Overall this was an adorable read. Well, as adorable as one can be with this level of smut. The Pretty Woman plot is by no means original, but it felt unique thanks to the author’s awareness, first-hand knowledge, and research into ASD. I was hooked and am slightly delirious, definitely time to get some sleep!
