Happy Wednesday friends! I am coming to you with a review of Helen Hoang’s, The Kiss Quotient It is an ownvoices novel about a high-functioning autistic woman who has had success in every part of her life…except for love. Stella has always thought that her autism would be the reason she would never find love so she put all her time into her job. However, her mom is constantly nagging her to settle down with someone because she wasn’t getting any younger and she was ready for grandchildren. To begin the process of finding someone to date, Stella decides to hire an escort to teach her the ins and outs of dating. Little did she know, that escort would turn into something more…way more!
You guys, this was one of my favorite reads of 2018! I was in complete shock with how much I loved this book. I mean everything about it was perfect. I loved Stella and Michael and the relationship that they created. I loved that Stella had autism because it gave her quirky qualities that although would make it hard for someone to get close to her, they would also make it easy to fall in love with her. I loved Michael and how accepting he was of Stella and how gentle he became when he learned more and more about her. He became protective and only wanted what was best for her, but that would in time lead to him needing Stella in his life for a lifetime. It was such a sweet story of their love forming and I wanted more and more with every page turn. To say that I am highly anticipating Helen’s next book is an understatement!
