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 crave all of the other things he’s making her feel. 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…
I have nothing but good things to say about The Kiss Quotient. I don’t know why I waited so long to pick this one up but I’m so glad that I did. It was sweet. It was funny. It was sexy. It was all of the things that I wanted from a romance novel and I’m so glad I finally picked it up.
I really loved Stella. She was so sure of herself and nothing but heart. I loved how thoughtful she was and I just thought she was wonderful. I loved having this story be focused on her. The fake dating trope is one of my favorites and it was so well done in this book.
Michael was a little annoying in the sense that there were things he wasn’t sharing. I understand why he didn’t, but it comes to a certain point where you just have to spill your secrets for the sake of your relationship. Other than that though, I really loved him. He adored his family and was endlessly patient with Stella.
I just really loved this book. It was sexy and sweet at the same time. I will definitely be reading more from this author and I cannot wait to get into her next novel. This is one I will be recommending for sure.
Keep on reading lovelies, Amanda.
