Staff Reviews

Khai Diep thinks his emotions are defective because of his autism and will not look for a relationship because he knows he can’t love. His mother decides to try to change his mind and brings Esme Tran from Vietnam to stay with Khai. Esme has never quite fit in, first because of her half American heritage in Vietnam and then as a new immigrant with limited English and little education in America. With Khai, she thinks there’s a connection but he’s convinced himself and her that it’s not love. 


A good romance allows you gain insight into people’s motivations and choices in relationships.  Hoang makes her characters so relatable and endearing, that even when I got exasperated with Khai because it’s so obvious how much he cares for his loved ones, I wanted to shake him and then give him a big hug. A great romance will increase your empathy and understanding of people in real life and that’s just what happened with this book.  Hoang definitely aced The Bride Test.

“This follow-up to The Kiss Quotient is an incredibly diverse and fun story about Khai, Michael’s cousin from the previous novel. He is Vietnamese-American, autistic, and believes himself to be incapable of the emotions that matter. I would recommend this to those who enjoyed The Rosie Effect and Eleanor Oliphant Is Completely Fine. Hoang is making important waves, one sweet, sexy romance novel at a time.”
