The Kiss Quotient by Helen Hoang

This book as one of my favorite CR reads of the year. It warmed my heart and left all the warm fuzzies.

I dove into this unsure of how I was sign to feel about it and by the end I had blinked and the day was gone and I was on the last page. The novel was compelling in a way that not many are. I fell in love with the characters and the story itself. I loved how the characters made you feel while reading. The hero was everything. He was a touch of bad with a perfect mix of supporting and different. He was everything Stella didn't know she needed. She was the perfect match to him and I was shipping them from the very start. Then we had Stella and gosh I loved her. She had her struggles and he was the perfect balance for her. This wasn't a story of pursuit, but rather, a story of truly just having love find you. This story had the swoon and brought the progression that felt natural, it felt like watching a movie. Brilliant.

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...
