The Kiss Quotient

Romance. The protagonist of Helen Hoang’s debut novel titled, The Kiss Quotient, falls under the Asperger’s end of the autism spectrum. She’s an endearing and complex character, great with algorithms, not so good when it comes to interpersonal skills. After her parents press her toward getting married, she decides she needs to learn how to be successful in a physical relationship, so she hires an escort to develop the necessary skills. At this point, the exposition takes a porny turn that quickly became more boring than erotic. After the physical relationship with escort Michael Phan becomes established, lessons and all, a romance develops, and that part of the novel is sweet. I’m not a romance reader, so I’m sure I don’t appreciate this genre, but I expect loads of readers will enjoy this novel. I didn’t.
