The Kiss Quotient

I really can not believe I waited this long to read this book! I am so glad I finally did read it because I loved it and enjoyed it a lot!




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 to crave all the other things he’s making her feel. Soon, 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…


This book was everything I wanted and more.

The romance was so sweet and just what I needed to read at the time. I couldn’t seem to put this book down until I had finished it and then went on to reread some of my favourite scenes over and over again!

Stella is one of the best characters and I loved her. She has a high functioning Autism syndrome and I really like how that has been expressed throughout the book.

It is enough for us to see her peculiarities and differences but not too much that she becomes a totally alienated and foreign character.

Michael is another character I really loved – he is a little very insecure and he doesn’t think much of himself and I hate that but I also understand him and his feelings.

There was a lot of character growth through the book as Stella learns how to be intimate with someone and I like how it was taking slowly and one step at a time. 

I also liked the family dynamics that had been portrayed through the book and how everyone really interacted and reacted to Stella’s autism.

The romance is a slow burn and I was always on the edge of my seat, waiting for them to admit their feelings and get together and I really liked the way everything played out!

Anyways, what did you all think of my post? Are you all going to read this book? Have you already read it? what did you think about it? Tell me in the comments below. Will be waiting to hear from you all, it means a lot to me.

  1. I think I gave this book four stars. I usually dislike friends to lovers but I love how they became friends first. I just wanted to kick them at times to finally admit their feelings to each other.
