Publisher's Summary

A cosmopolitan title to get excited about in 2018! 

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 as well as way less experience in the dating department than the average 30-year-old. It doesn't help that she has Asperger's and that French kissing reminds her of a shark getting its teeth cleaned by pilot fish. She decides that she needs lots of practice - with a professional - which is why she hires escort Michael Phan. 

The Vietnamese-Swedish stunner can't afford to turn down Stella's offer, and he 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 also to crave all of the other things he's making her feel. Their no-nonsense partnership starts making a strange kind of sense. And the pattern that emerges convinces Stella that love is the best kind of logic...

Loved this!

This was a new author for me and a new narrator. Both were so fun with this book. I loved the characters and thought they were well rounded. The narrator made their voices come to life. I will gladly find both again and try more.

I don't speak Vietnamese, so unsure if things are pronounced correctly, but seeing the ebook and listening made me glad to know how to not pronounce things.

The secondary characters were so much fun and I am curious about possibly learning more about Michael's family.

Wonderful! You’ll love it!

Such a sweet story, interesting characters and a nice departure from the usual plot lines.
This author is new to me, and now I want to see if she’s written anything else.
I highly recommend!

Must Read

Growing up with a sibling on the spectrum, this book touched my heart. It was a wonderful perspective with plenty of steamy scenes along the way. I definitely recommend this book! I also loved the narrator! I wasn’t able to stop listening!!

Loved it

Superb, feel good romance that one can connect to, appreciate and dream about.

Highly recommend this novel, especially to fans of the hating game whore looking for similarly moving novels.

Really enjoyed

I throughly enjoyed this book, I wish I could read it over for the first time. I love that the characters were diverse, that seems hard to come by. I appreciated that she was autistic, just really well put together story.

Math+Love

I loved every moment of this book. The narrator was great, and the story line was just the right amount of romance to sex. Thank you

What an experience...

Listening to The Kiss Quotient was an intense experience for me. I don't think I have ever listened to a book and felt so drawn in. There was one particular scene where the main character has a panic attack, and to be honest, I was right there alongside her with my heart pumping. It happened on the way to work and by the time I got there, I was a jittery mess. I was completely sucked in.

The first half of the story, I was completely riveted and loved getting to know Stella and Michael. Stella was quirky and I loved seeing her process her surroundings and deal with her ticks. Michael was interesting to get to know. His burdens, the guilt attached to his choices and his embarrassment with a job he does because he has to not because he wants to, are at times hard to witness. Both Stella and Michael are originals.

The second half of the book lost a little of the momentum for me. When we are faced with drama, misunderstandings and a lack of communication, I felt it was a little misplaced. Her previous openness deserted her and Michael's patience and concern for her happiness seemed to have disappeared. I was just a little disappointed.

The narrator does an exceptional job but I think her work was made easier for her considering what she got to work with. Her slight accent with certain characters, her ability to give us an experience and not just read it to us made it even more amazing.

I enjoyed The Kiss Quotient and I will definitely be reading more from this author in the future.

Fun but NSFW

I work with autism as a career and so found this entertaining and would love for the world to be as open minded about ASD as the characters in this book. But the steaminess here means I won’t be recommending it to people at work! Fun listen for off-work time.

Refreshing autistic voice, likeable characters.

This book is not from my preferred genre but I read it because I am autistic and wanted to experience a romance novel from the perspective of a writer's voice that I can connect with. I got sucked in fairly quickly which is unusual. I really liked the protagonist's love interest. I was intrigued by other characters in the story. I am excited for the next book. The narrator's voice was not distracting. Nice to see autistic sexuality and thinking processes being represented but I don't think you don't have to be autistic to enjoy it. Good pace and well executed.
