Book Description: A heartwarming and refreshing debut novel that proves one thing: there's not enough data in the world to predict what will make your heart tick.

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, and way less experience in the dating department than the average thirty-year-old.

It doesn't help that Stella has Asperger's and French kissing reminds her of a shark getting its teeth cleaned by pilot fish. Her conclusion: she needs lots of practice--with a professional. Which is why she hires escort Michael Phan. The Vietnamese and Swedish stunner can't afford to turn down Stella's offer, and 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 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 will convince Stella that love is the best kind of logic...

The Kiss Quotient was just as adorable as everyone has been saying! I loved these characters to pieces. Stella and Michael are complex and flawed and compliment each other perfectly. Stella is a very successful econometrician who has no experience with relationships. She also happens to have Aspergers and decides the best way to gain some relationship experience is by hiring a male escort. That's how Michael Phan comes into her life. Neither of them expects how much they're drawn to the other. 

Both Stella and Michael are very confident and very insecure in different ways. And though they don't seem like they'd make sense at all, they are incredibly endearing and a great match. One of my most favorite parts of this story is the way that Stella and Michael see each other, and the way they're always encouraging and supporting each other. This is a contemporary romance that's not to be missed.

Love Triangle Factor: None
