The Kiss Quotient ⭐⭐⭐
Author - Helen Hoang
Publisher - Penguin Random House

My second book by Helen Hoang after "The Bride Test". I liked The Bride Test and saw better reviews about "The Kiss Quotient" which was her first book. So, I read the books in reverse order and it lived up to its hype.

Stella Lane, 30, an econometrician, is successful and smart but she expertise in one area due to her Asperger's syndrome and that's relationships. She gets really awkward when it comes to love, social interactions and love making. She hires an escort to teach her to get well on these subjects so that she can fulfill her mother's demands of marriage and giving her grandchildren.

Michael Larson who is a fashion graduate but works for his mother as a tailor to pay off her medical bills and to stay with her while she is going through the cancer treatment. He also works as an escort on Fridays without the knowledge of his family or friends to get extra income for the same purpose. Stella hires Michael but instead of a professional relationship between them, it turns into a personal relationship when both of them get smitten by each other and couldn't stay away from each other.

I have been a fan of Helen's writing since I read her "The Bride Test". She empowered an autistic character with her narrative abilities and emphasis on a strong, independent and smart woman is always her strong point. Most of the romantic novels are cliché but this book is refreshing and very modern. Helen's book also teaches a lesson that "consent" is very important in a relationship and nobody can force himself/herself on you without your consent.

A hot and steamy romantic book with a lot of sense, a must read by Helen Hoang.
