Goodread's Big Books of Spring 2019 - Romance

'Such a fun read... Original and sexy and sensitive.' Roxane Gay, on The Kiss Quotient

'Refreshingly real.' Marie Claire for The Bride Test
__________________

From the bestselling author of The Kiss Quotient.

Khai Diep has no feelings. Well, not big, important emotions - like grief. And love. He thinks he's defective. His family knows better - that his autism means he just processes emotions differently. When he steadfastly refuses to consider a relationship, his mother takes matters into her own hands and returns to Vietnam to find him the perfect bride.

As a mixed-race girl living in the slums of Ho Chi Minh City, Esme Tran has always felt out of place. So when the opportunity arises to go to America and meet a potential husband, she can't turn it down. This could be the break her family needs. Seducing Khai, however, doesn't go quite as planned. Esme's lessons in love seem to be working... but only on herself. She's hopelessly smitten with a man who's convinced he can never return her affection.

As Esme's time in the United States dwindles, will Khai let his head catch up with his heart? Will he find the strength to let go, and let love in?

Review quote

An absolute delight - charming, sexy, and centered on a protagonist you love rooting for... Equal parts endearing and (very) steamy. * Buzzfeed, 30 Best Summer Books, on The Kiss Quotient * I loved it. Hoang's writing has a sharp, quirky, emotional edge that will resonate with anyone who has ever tried to navigate the complicated world of modern relationships. * Jayne Ann Krentz, author of Promise Not to Tell on The Kiss Quotient * It's one of the best books I've read in a very long time. It's funny, sad, poignant and impossible to put down. * Christine Feehan, author of Dark Promises on The Kiss Quotient * AWESOME. Adorable, sexy, smart. Exactly the book I wanted to read! * Christina Lauren, author of Love and Other Words on The Kiss Quotient * Such a fun read... Original and sexy and sensitive. * Roxane Gay on The Kiss Quotient * Hoang's writing bursts from the page. * Buzzfeed * With serious moments offset by spot-on humor, this romance has broad appeal, and it will find a special place in the hearts of autistic people and those who love them. * Publishers Weekly, Starred Review * Helen Hoang is a master of building characters that feel relatable. * New York Times bestselling author Christina Lauren * [Hoang] has truly found her voice - an important, entertaining, skilful voice at that. * Independent Online * Smart, honest, and achingly romantic, just as sexy as it is sweet. * Taylor Jenkins Reid, author of Daisy Jones and the Six *
