“This is such a fun read and it’s also quite original and sexy and sensitive.”
—ROXANE GAY, NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLING AUTHOR
I’m always on the lookout for unusual characters. Not just for my own books but because I want to read about more than the usual hot alpha hero and perky heroine. I don’t care what ethnicity the characters are, though generally they’re some version of white. I look for unusual story lines or character flaws. Excite me with something new.
The Kiss Quotient by Helen Hoang did that for me. Yes, her heroine happens to be Asian, but that’s not what interested me. Her heroine is on the autistic spectrum. And even more cool, writing the book helped the author learn about her own diagnosis. I honestly don’t know which came first, the book or her diagnosis. I don’t care. The point is that the characters felt authentic to me. I understood some of the heroine’s struggles. It even made me curious enough to learn more about autism and Ms. Hoang’s journey.
Oh and one other thing…the story is awesome. Book 2 in the series is next up on my e-reader! Check it out!
