The Kiss Quotient by Helen Hoang


The Kiss Quotient focuses on an intelligent, data-driven woman who feels the need to work on improving her social interactions. In her attempt to work towards this goal, she decides to focus on being more comfortable with intimacy. This fun and sexy plot has our heroine hiring a male escort to work through her very detailed lesson plan.

This book is sweet, humorous, smile-inducing, and it incorporates a beautiful cultural element which was my favorite part. Additionally, I think this book would fall into the category of an "own voices" read, as the heroine is diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder (specifically what was formerly diagnosed as Asperger’s Syndrome), just like the author. According to the author, her fairly recent diagnosis inspired her to develop the heroine for this book. I thoroughly enjoyed my reading experience and I intend to continue the series. It should be noted that despite the chick-lit-ish cover art, The Kiss Quotient is an adult romance, so the sexual content goes beyond what some might consider the norm for chick-lit Enjoy!!
