Review:Helen Hoang's "The Kiss Quotient (The Kiss Quotient #1)."


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.

Review: Jo 

It's not often that I read a romance that centres around an escort and his client. The only other book in this genre that stands out for me was Jane Harvey-Berrick’s “At Your Beck and Call" which I absolutely loved. So discovering that this novel had a similar kind of premise made me eager to read more and then throw in the refreshing twist and I was beyond intrigued to see this story play out. The book continued with a story that made me smile, swoon and fall in love. The hero and heroine of this novel were both brilliant characters and easy to root for. Stella was an intelligent and interesting kinda girl who had so many good things going for her. I loved Stella and when she started her relationship with sexy male escort, Michael, my interest piqued and I adored what I was reading. 

“When you love someone, Michael, you fight for them in every way you know how.” 

Michael was the kind of book boyfriend that we all fall head-over-heels for. Caring, understanding and patient. He was the perfect match for Stella. They shared many of the same interests and got along so well. I enjoyed their banter and the development of their relationship made me blissfully happy. The couple also had a ton of heat between them. The sex scenes were insanely hot! I had emoji heart eyes throughout the majority of this book. 

“I’m obsessed with you, Michael, I don’t just want a night or a week or a month with you. 
I want you all the time. I like you better than calculus...” 

This story was a sweet slow burn romance filled with gorgeous heart-melting moments. It was a story about embracing and accepting the differences between us and not having to change ourselves to find love. It was well worth the read. 

“She tightened her grip, and he squeezed her back. 
Palm to palm, two lonely halves found comfort together.”

"The Kiss Quotient" gets 4.5 ❤️'s from me
