The Kiss Quotient

In this reverse Pretty Women style book, our female main character Stella finds herself trying to learn how to be intimate… by paying for an escort.

Stella is a young, driven woman who we learn early on is autistic. She has a successful career and a daily routine that she doesn’t like to stray from. When her mother keeps pressuring her to find a man, Stella takes it upon herself to research a man to teach her how to be in a relationship so that she can get her mom off her back.

Which leads us to her escort, Michael. Michael didn’t expect his life to turn out like this, but when your dad skips town and your mom’s sick, someone has to pay the bills. When he meets Stella for the first time, his initial reaction is to turn her down.

But when he thinks about other people possibly taking advantage of her, he says yes and begins his Friday sex lessons. While he is uncomfortable with their arrangement, he can’t turn down the money that comes with it.

This was one of my favorite reads of 2021. It was adorable and sexy and I couldn’t put the book down. I loved the representation with Stella and would do ANYTHING for a real life Michael to be in my life.

While Stella and Michael hit many speedbumps throughout their relationship, they showed that money, labels and outside factors don’t matter. Their story was beautiful and I had all the feels throughout it.

If you’re looking for a good read to get you out of a reading slump, then this is for you. It’s bitter-sweet to be done with this book; on one hand I wish I could read this again for the first time, but on the other hand I’m so happy to have these fictional characters in my heart.

Rip off that Band-Aid and go read this now. Thanks :)
