Kiss Quotient Adaption and Autism!
I’ve seen this book floating around on Instagram but didn’t know really know much about it. One can only assume it was a romantic comedy. I read more about the plot and I just put it on hold at the library. I’m also late to the party in finding out,“The Kiss Quotient,” is getting a movie adaption. There hasn’t been any casting yet for who is going to play who. Though according to Helen Hoang, she would love to see Henry Golding from Crazy Rich Asians (another famous movie based on a New York Times Bestselling Novel) to play the male lead.
Stella Lane thinks math is the only thing that unites the universe. She comes up with algorithms to predict customer purchases—a job that has given her more money than she knows what to do with, and way less experience in the dating department than the average thirty-year-old.
It doesn’t help that Stella has Asperger’s and French kissing reminds her of a shark getting its teeth cleaned by pilot fish. Her conclusion: she needs lots of practice—with a professional. Which is why she hires escort Michael Phan. The Vietnamese and Swedish stunner can’t afford to turn down Stella’s offer, and agrees to help her check off all the boxes on her lesson plan—from foreplay to more-than-missionary position…
Before long, Stella not only learns to appreciate his kisses, but crave all of the other things he’s making her feel. Their no-nonsense partnership starts making a strange kind of sense. And the pattern that emerges will convince Stella that love is the best kind of logic…
I have not read the book but I definitely want to now and I’m glad I have the book on hold at the library. Not only is the plot interesting, I like the fact that the main female character, Stella is on the autism spectrum. According to screenrant.com, As Helen Hoang was writing her novel, she was diagnosed with autism. In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, she said that at the age of 34, she saw that she could relate to her character and others who have what the publication calls “trouble with social skills.”
Hoang told EW, “In the first draft of the book, Stella had a coming-out-as-autistic moment with Michael, and that moment was really good for me to work through the dialogue on paper before I actually said it.” She said in an interview with Publisher’s Weekly that it’s her first “personal book.”
I’m on the autism spectrum myself trying to make a living off of my book blog and writing my own material. If Helen Hoang can make it and not let her autism hinder her, that means I can too. I’m the type of woman who is a go getter and my grandparents gave me great advice that I can’t let anything or anyone stop me especially myself. I hope this news has you my wonderful readers excited!
