A heartwarming and refreshing debut novel that proves one thing: there's not enough data in the world to predict what will make your heart tick.
It's high time for Stella Lane to settle down and find a husband - or so her mother tells her. This is no easy task for a wealthy, successful woman like Stella, who also happens to have Asperger's. Analyzing data is easy; handling the awkwardness of one-on-one dates is hard. To overcome her lack of dating experience, Stella decides to hire a male escort to teach her how to be a good girlfriend.
Faced with mounting bills, Michael decides to use his good looks and charm to make extra cash on the side. He has a very firm no repeat customer policy, but he's tempted to bend that rule when Stella approaches him with an unconventional proposal.
The more time they spend together, the harder Michael falls for this disarming woman with a beautiful mind, and Stella discovers that love defies logic.
Heart-tugging, sexy and utterly joyful - The Kiss Quotient is a book for anyone who has been in love, or in lust...

Really good read, the plot was great and so was the romance
Amazing and Incredibly Compelling
Currently 1.37am and I have just finished this beautiful and addictive read. I related so strongly with Stella as I’ve always been socially awkward and at times my siblings have wondered if I may be on the spectrum. This book tapped into my innermost feelings regarding intimacy and public interactions. I have a crippling fear of being in relationships but this book melted my heart.
I hope this book gets reprinted numerous times and a stellar film adaptation.
Thank you Helen for sharing this gem with the world.
I normally don’t write reviews but this book was actually so amazing! I am studying to become a counsellor and I’ve been reading romance books for years and this is the best of both. What you have created is amazing and is unlike anything I have ever seen - you can tell how much work has gone into the research and personal understanding. The awareness this book can spread without belittling or simplifying an illness is amazing and I think everyone can learn from it. Stella is such a strong and determined woman and I love her- you’ve truly written something perfect.
