The Kiss Quotient by Helen Hoang

"But how exactly did you practice sex? It wasn't like men we're throwing themselves at her like women apparently did to Philip."

I absolutely devoured this gorgeous little romance novel. I'm almost embarrassed to admit it. Who would have thought that a novel about a girl with Asperger's who hires a male escort to overcome what she sees as her sexual failings. What happens is surprisingly engaging and delightful. I feel kind of guilty for liking a Pretty Woman  style story with a gender twist.

Stella has an endearing innocence by virtue of her inability to understand people's motivations and emotions. It puts an interesting spin on what had the potential to otherwise be a small, sordid story. Here, this unsuspecting love story transforms into something utterly delightful. 

I don't know that I can say too much more about this tasty morsel. Check it out for yourself.

5 out of 5, this one went down so well.
