Helen Hoang – author of The Kiss Quotient, the read of Summer 2018! – novels are like Bon Bons: a beloved snack that turns the sourest moods upside down.
The Bride Test was unputdownable (is this a word? if not, it should be). If you could wrap this book in a hug, you would.
Hotel maid Esme, a mixed race woman living in Ho Chi Minh City, has a run in with Khai’s mom in a bathroom that will change her life forever. Khai, a man with autism living in California, doesn’t do relationships. His interfering mother obviously doesn’t like that so she sets out to find him a bride: cue in Esme.
Esme is now in the States for the summer living with Khai. She sets out to seduce Khai for a better life, but winds up just frazzling him. Oh, and she falls in love with him…oops. Khai doesn’t do love, his cold heart isn’t capable of it. Will Esme convince Khai that he is capable of loving or will she be heading home at the end of the summer?
Not as steamy as The Kiss Quotient but still on the flame meter. So yes, still steamy.
The Bride Test was a quick, fun, addictive read: just in time for summer!!
