Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine that features highly anticipated book releases.
Title: The Kiss Quotient
Author: Helen Hoang
Publication Date: June 5, 2018
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…
Why am I excited?
I LOVE a good contemporary romance! This one also has a female protagonist with Asperger’s and I’m excited for the representation. It’s also an interracial love story as well, which I loved in The Wedding Date! This romance is also giving off reverse Pretty Woman vibes, with the man in the role of the escort. There is definitely also going to be LOTS of smut and I’m not complaining at all!
