Tellulah Darling

Tellulah Darling writes YA & New Adult romantic comedy because her first kiss sucked and she's compensating.

Sassy girls. Swoony boys. What could go wrong?

A lovely, sweet romance

The Kiss Quotient - Helen Hoang

I have to admit that while I very much wanted to read about a female protagonist who has Asperger’s, the cover kept putting me off. I’m delighted that I got past that because this romance was a delight. And incredibly sexy.

 

If you’ve followed this blog for a long time, you know how much I love Korean Dramas. It’s awesome how our half-Vietnamese male lead, Michael is compared looks-wise to Daniel Henney who was in one of my favourite KDramas, The Lovely Sam Soon. Michael is also just a great guy with a big heart and a lot of baggage. No alphaholeness here whatsoever.

 

The Kiss Quotient is a reverse Pretty Woman story and because Hoang has done such an excellent job in crafting her characters, the premise works. This is an #ownvoices book, but it is never preachy. I was rooting for Stella the entire time. It was a joy to be in her head and watch her blossom under the attention of a man who was worthy of her.

 

I’m going to leave it at that because I want you to just fall into this romance the way I did.
