The Kiss Quotient - Helen Hoang

Liked the idea of a gender swapped Pretty Woman. Really hot love scenes. Be warned though that some parts may be triggering for rape and sexual assault.

 

Stella (rich and clueless about men) decides to hire an escort to teach her about sex. Stella has tried to enjoy sex and kissing and hates it. When she hires Michael that all changes.

 

Michael is forced to become an escort due to his mother’s medical bills and the debt his father left family to deal with. He has a rule that he only sees clients once, but finds himself intrigued by giving Stella lessons in sex.

 

Loved having Michael as a biracial Vietnamese and white. His family sounds loud and loving. Hoang did a great job with providing details about him. She apparently did a lot of research into Asperger too and I hope those who have the condition found it realistic.
