book review

The Kiss Quotient | Helen Hoang



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.



Let’s just say that TKQ was the book I never knew I needed until I had it in my hands. I just couldn’t put it down! Unfortunately I had to so I could actually try and get some sleep but as soon as I had some free time I picked it back up again the next day and finished it.

And you guys…WHAT.A.BOOK! I felt like I was in a reading slump for a good two weeks and this just pulled me right back out.

I love Stella. She was everything and made this book. I honestly forgot through most of the book that she had Asperger’s. I found her quirky, smart, and absolutely hilarious. And while some parts of Stella make you remember about her Asperger’s, such as her strict routine and kind of OCD attention to detail, the rest of who she is outweighs all of that and I was cheering her on so much through out the book.

And let’s talk about Michael for a second because HELLO! You could see the kind of man he was. Confident, sexy, a little bit of a bad boy but was soft on the inside, if anyone knows where I can get one of those please let me know!

I don’t want to gush too much as I don’t want to spoil it for anyone who hasn’t read it but since I’ve seen it almost everywhere on bookstagram I’m assuming most of you reading this have read it.

TKQ is funny, witty, saucy and sexy, I spent much of my time reading it smiling, laughing and giggling for obvious reasons.

Helen Hoang is a QUEEN! She knows how to write a book, she gave me everything I never knew I needed and is probably now one of my favourite and auto buy authors. I’m so excited to pick up the next book The Bride Test.

But really, if you haven’t read this, you need to! If you want a fun, sexy read, read it. If you feel like you are in a slump and don’t know what to read, read this. I’m kicking myself that it took me so long to read it. But honestly, I can’t wait to read it again!

And a huge thank you to the amazing team at Allen and Unwin for sending me TKQ for an honest review!
