From the USA Today bestselling author of The Kiss Quotient comes a romantic novel about love that crosses international borders and all boundaries of the heart...
Khai Diep has no feelings. Well, he feels irritation when people move his things or contentment when ledgers balance down to the penny, but not big, important emotions—like grief. And love. He thinks he's defective. His family knows better—that his autism means he just processes emotions differently. When he steadfastly avoids relationships, his mother takes matters into her own hands and returns to Vietnam to find him the perfect bride.
As a mixed-race girl living in the slums of Ho Chi Minh City, Esme Tran has always felt out of place. When the opportunity arises to come to America and meet a potential husband, she can't turn it down, thinking this could be the break her family needs. Seducing Khai, however, doesn't go as planned. Esme's lessons in love seem to be working...but only on herself. She's hopelessly smitten with a man who's convinced he can never return her affection.
With Esme's time in the United States dwindling, Khai is forced to understand he's been wrong all along. And there's more than one way to love.

The bride test
It was a great book not bad you should read it :)
Another great story from Helen Hoang
This is another truly beautiful story that Helen shows that she can capture lightning in a bottle. I read The Kiss Quotient in January 2020, and totally loved it, so my hopes were high for The Bride Test. She hit it totally out of the park! Esme and Khai’s relationship is so sweet. I read this book in a day! I will definitely be reading anything of Helen’s I can get my hands on. She doesn’t disappoint!
