The Kiss Quotient by Helen Hoang

kiss quotient

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.

If I were to describe this book in one word it would be cringy. Stella hires Michael, a male escort to help her become a better girlfriend. Within minutes of meeting, it is clear that Michael is going to fall hopelessly in love with Stella. All her quirks were instantly endearing to him, where they had been seen as weird and annoying by others. Stella in return falls in love with Michael. But both, for some unknown reason, thinks the other isn’t interested in anything past their business arrangement.

What follows is a sequence of very predictable small storylines, some very cheesy self-dialogue, and some extra embarrassingly worded sex scenes. Ultimately this is a step up from a Mills & Boon romance in the terminology and descriptions of the passion scenes. But it’s quick and easy read, great for someone looking to switch off and read something amusing.
