Kiss Quotient (Hoang) - Book Reviews

Book Reviews
Hoang writes Stella with insight and empathy, especially when Stella's actions are inscrutable to the people around her. Stella's aware of that disconnect, too, and her frustration is a sharp sadness in an otherwise gentle, frothy book.
Jaime Greene - New York Times Book Review

[A]fter months of fanfare, and I'm happy to report [The Kiss Quotient] absolutely lives up to the buzz. It's a heartening, fun, and all-consuming story in which we fall in love with both an endearing on-the-spectrum econometrician and the sexy biracial male escort she hires to teach her everything about modern dating and sex.
Kamrun Nessa - NPR

Hoang’s witty debut proves that feelings are greater than numbers, no matter how you add things up.

With a deft hand, Hoang crafts an honest and thoughtful look at the challenges Stella’s neuroatypicality poses while never losing sight of who Stella is as an individual, especially as her relationship with Michael evolves into something far beyond the scientific.
Harper’s Bazaar

Helen Hoang’s The Kiss Quotient is an absolute delight—charming, sexy, and centered on a protagonist you love rooting for.

(Starred review) Hoang knocks it out of the park with this stellar debut…. The diverse cast and exceptional writing take this romance to the next level, and readers who see themselves in Stella will be ecstatic.
Publishers Weekly

(Starred review) This title sits firmly in the erotic romance category, but the couple's slow build (and sizzling sexual chemistry) is certainly worth the wait. Verdict: A compulsively readable erotic romance that is equal parts sugar and spice. Highly recommended.
Library Journal

[The] novel features two uncommon protagonists: a woman with autism… and a biracial man. Inspired by personal experience, Hoang depicts Stella with empathy and honesty.… [A] refreshing take on the classic romance story — Aleksandra Walker
