I did not like The Kiss Quotient. I thought it lacked… life. Emotion. Vulnerability. Sweet romance. And I did not feel connected to the characters one bit. From what I remember, I didn’t even push past the halfway point. That’s how much I did not care.

All that to say that I only gave this one a chance because I am a sucker for cutesy covers and can’t help but give authors who have disappointed me in the past a second chance. As I admit this, I realize it applies to people in general, too, so now I’m wondering if this is a quality or a weakness of mine.

Regardless, I am elated I read this book that can be read as a standalone. No need to read The Kiss Quotient. Actually, I recommend forgetting it exists altogether and diving into this one right away. This story was much lovelier, romantic and humorous! I could one hundred percent picture everything on the big screen.

I can’t even decide who I love most between Esme and Khai. The two belong together, that is quite obvious, as they complement each other and I’m sure it isn’t healthy to be jealous of fictional couples but alas I very much want what they have. They are so lucky to have been forced onto one another. Even if that sounds wrong.

They are not, however, perfect. Esme’s lies are annoying and her going along with that last mischievous plan was unbelievable. I saw it coming, tried to prevent it somehow with my mind, admitted defeat and witnessed everything unfold with disappointed eyes. I get why it happened. But still. If you’re confused, well you should be because I don’t want to spoil you. If you know what I’m referring to, let’s bang our heads together.

Anyways, I adored this book and am now looking forward to this author’s future releases!
