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...

A sexy, heart lightening listen to make you smile(& gasp with the cheeky pleasure)

It is hard no to float along with the lightness and appreciate the balance with the sensitivity and the sexiness without needing to think about it in depth to deconstruct it.
If one wanted to pick it apart, criticise it and dismiss it, that is obviously a possible option. But why bother? There is to much harshness in the world these days to waste your time, energy and effort with that
***a heads up that it has extremely intimate moments, but sidesteps feeling like you are listening to explicit, pornographic description that could offense.

Bored

The book was a cliche- obvious and predictable.
The characters lacked any depth. Possibly if you are a teenager you may enjoy the sex scenes but they were really boring and I wanted to get on to the story which never seemed to happen. I returned the book 1/4 if he way through.

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.

Very refreshing, swoony & romantic! A+

This has been a delight of an audiobook!! The story is such a great romance, but it is the characters, how they engage with each other and how the author was able to show so much of their inner thoughts that made them seem real making this story unique and wonderfully refreshing! The narration is OUTSTANDING!! Carly Robins has always been a favorite of mine but she really delivered a solid performance filled with humor, heart, compassion and great tempo. Deserving of all the accolades!! A solid romance well worth the hype.

I'd buy these two undies.

This book was a fun romance to romp through. I went in expecting it to be similar to The Rosie Project...that it is not! It's got some pretty vividly explicit sex scenes. Those don't bother me but can be a shocker if you aren't expecting them to pop up.
I also felt like this book portrayed both instalove and slow burn at the same time. Not being a fan of instalove at all, I greatly enjoyed the ways that also made this a slow burn romance.
It's definitely a quick one to get through and lots of fun getting there (expect several chuckles along the way!).

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.

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

Beautiful

Wow! This audiobook is just fantastic. I loved both Stella and Michael desperately and willed them to be together.
I can't believe this is a debut novel, it's so accomplished.
Very highly recommended.

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.
