EXCLUSIVE GIVEAWAY FOR MY SUMMER READ RECOMMENDATION!!
KEEP READING TO ENTER TO WIN A PAPERBACK COPY!!!
I am beyond thrilled to share this exclusive giveaway for my summer read recommendation! The Kiss Quotient By Helen Hoang
“Hoang’s writing bursts from the page.”–Buzzfeed
A heartwarming and refreshing debut novel that proves one thing: there’s not enough data in the world to predict what will make your heart tick.
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…
Again, I am beyond thrilled to share this exclusive giveaway for my summer read recommendation ‘The Kiss Quotient’. I adored this debut novel by Helen Hoang so much and I want EVERYONE to read it!! I’m not going to lie. Not something I’d normally choose. Y’all know I’m a cover whore and I tend to choose more eye-catching covers, staying away from the cartoony ones. (Nothing wrong with them really just a personal preference) But when I received the review request raving about this book I could almost feel the adoration and awe for ‘The Kiss Quotient’. Which made it a no-brainer for me.
Y’all remember I went to Ireland and England in April right? Well, I devoured this book on the plane. It was the perfect holiday read. The right amount of steam, the perfect amount of swoon-worthy romance, and the right amount of laughs.
5 Remarkable stars for ‘The Kiss Quotient’
Sometimes you stumble on a new author that not only writes beautifully but brings to light a condition many live with. Something that you may or may not be familiar with but is so well done it opens your eyes and makes you want to shake the hand of said author and say “thank you”. Thank you for your words. Thank you for opening my eyes. Or maybe thank you for putting into words how I feel on a daily basis with the promise that yes there is someone out there who will understand you and accept you for you. The Kiss Quotient is that book. Author Helen Hoang is that author. You’re about to embark on an original story told from the heart with such passion and empathy you can’t help but fall, not only for the characters but for the author herself. You can truly see she is writing from her soul when creating these characters. They were meant to be put to paper for all the world to read and Hoang performed that task flawlessly.
I can honestly say I’ve never read anything like this before. The condition Stella lives with is one I’m not personally familiar with. However, Hoang’s seamless depiction of the struggles that people like Stella deal with on a daily basis was eye-opening. I truly empathized and fell in love with Stella. Yes, she may have her idiosyncrasies that those around her don’t understand. But she is also a brilliant strong and independent woman who I found myself completely and totally immersed in. I found her to be such a beautiful character that deserves all the love understanding and passion that she’s looking for.
Michael Phan is everything a girl wants. In real life and in her romance novels. He’s an amazing character that is sure to sweep you off your feet. But I have to say It’s not just the hero and heroine that make this novel. The realism that Michael’s family delivers to this novel makes you feel as if you are one of them. You hurt when they hurt, you laugh with their crazy antics and you feel as if you are one of them. These characters and their personalities added so much more heart to this story it was the perfect touch to truly bring this story home for the reader.
