The Kiss Quotient by Helen Hoang | Audiobook Review

Why Did I Listen To The Kiss Quotient by Helen Hoang?

The Kiss Quotient by Helen Hoang basically has all of my twitter trusteds singing PRAISES. That means I had to listen to it sooner rather than later. Granted, I would have been happy also reading the print version. ALSO the cover reminded me a little bit of The Hating Game which I loved. Reader friends, I am so glad that I actually listened to The Kiss Quotient. It was exactly as good as everyone has been saying.

What’s The Story Here?

So, Helen Hoang’s The Kiss Quotient is a contemporary romance about two main characters – Stella and Michael. Stella is an econometrician with Asperger’s. Michael is an escort. Stella hires Michael to teach her how to do the sex and be good at it, ha ha. Anyways, Stella gets a little more than she bargained for and catches feelings for Michael. He realizes that Stella is one hundred percent not like his other clients. The two have a LOT in common. Regardless, Michael also begins to catch feelings for her as well. There’s some drama built in too, otherwise this book would be so boring. ALSO Michael is Vietnamese – so there’s even more diversity. And I WAS HERE FOR IT.

How Did I Like The Kiss Quotient?

I didn’t like The Kiss Quotient, I LOVED THE KISS QUOTIENT. Ok, ok, I am second hand embarrassed for myself right now too. But friends, this book is so adorable. The characterization is flawless. I loved both Stella and Michael and feel like they are now dear to me. Michael’s family is special and wonderful, minus his dad. The pacing moved along perfectly. I never thought – wow this is dragging. I think that if you want to try contemporary romance (which yes you should because it is SUPERB) give Helen Hoang a shot.

How’s The Narration?

The audiobook is narrated by Carly Robins who is GREAT. I always get a little tiny bit nervous listening to a hype book on audio. Why? Because what if it is terribly narrated? Then I miss out on liking a book that everyone else likes simply because I don’t care for the narration. Thankfully this book rocked via audio. I was able to follow along perfectly. I thought the narration matched what I expected of the characters. Also? This made driving and folding laundry go by so much faster. I would totally recommend this to you if you’re in the market for a new good listen (ALSO IT IS ON HOOPLA!).

  1. I used to read romance all the time. Like all the time. Then the pendulum swung too far the other way and now I very rarely pick one up. But this sounds fantastic and your review’s got me thinking I should give it a try.

  2. I’ve been hearing great things about this book. Glad you loved it!! I’ll have to pick it up soon!
