From the blurb of “The 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.
Forced 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 the disarming woman with a beautiful mind, and Stella discovers that love defies logic.”
‘Simply delightful!’ – Nalini Singh
‘A rare and riveting love story.’ – Penelope Douglas
The Kiss Quotient, by Helen Hoang, is quite fun, insightful, and an interesting read. It is written from the point of view of both Stella and Michael, and explores the relationship between the two characters, which starts out quite professional, until, well, I’m not giving away any spoilers – So you’ll just have to read it to see how it ends.
I give it a five out of five stars, for the book’s originality, and being a captivating and interesting read, about a topic that is becoming more and more common, and mainstream – Women paying male escorts for companionship, sex, and anything else they’d like, on their own terms. There’s absolutely nothing wrong with it, and it’s great that the stigma is being taken away, so that women can feel free to go out there and get what they want, without thinking that others would negatively judge them.
Any book that helps toward making women’s free choice, and right to feel fantastic, empowered, and free to be themselves, more widely accepted by the community, is a book that I want to read.
I love how this book has the two main characters being really interesting, and gives us an insight into how they think. Stella, having Asperger’s, and Michael, being a male escort, paves the way for a nice story, which is put together with an interesting plot.
Full of laughs, yummy sex scenes, and interesting dialogue, this book is, as Jayne Ann Krentz, New York Times bestselling author puts it, “Unexpected, unconventional, and unputdownable… filled with sparkle, heat, and energy.”
The Kiss Quotient is well written, a bit on the cheeky side, and quite enjoyable. I’m glad to have read it.
