Title: The Bride Test (The Kiss Quotient #2)
Author: Helen Hoang
Publication Date: May 7, 2019
Khai Diep has no feelings. Well, he feels irritation when people move his things or contentment when ledgers balance down to the penny, but not big, important emotions—like grief. And love. He thinks he’s defective. His family knows better—that his autism means he just processes emotions differently. When he steadfastly avoids relationships, his mother takes matters into her own hands and returns to Vietnam to find him the perfect bride.
As a mixed-race girl living in the slums of Ho Chi Minh City, Esme Tran has always felt out of place. When the opportunity arises to come to America and meet a potential husband, she can’t turn it down, thinking this could be the break her family needs. Seducing Khai, however, doesn’t go as planned. Esme’s lessons in love seem to be working…but only on herself. She’s hopelessly smitten with a man who’s convinced he can never return her affection.
With Esme’s time in the United States dwindling, Khai is forced to understand he’s been wrong all along. And there’s more than one way to love.
Why am I excited?
Well, if you haven’t heard me screaming about The Kiss Quotient by now, you’re totally missing out. It’s quickly become one of the hottest romance books of the summer! Hence, my dying need for her next book in the series about Khai. He’s autistic and doesn’t deal with emotions well, but his mother decides to find a bride for him anyway, hoping he can find love. I have a mighty need for more Helen Hoang, guys!
