Review: The Kiss Quotient

Review: The Kiss Quotient by Helen Hoang

I read this book in a 24 hour period following a very heavy emotionally taxing book and it was perfect. I seriously loved the Kiss Quotient and it was exactly the book I needed at the time. I ADORE the characters in this book and couldn’t get enough of Stella and Michael and Michael’s family. I love the neurodivergent protagonist Stella and how her autism is not something that needs fixing, it’s part of her like her brown eyes. Michael is an escort Stella hires to show her how to be better in the bedroom,
and this being a romance novel, of course they fall for each other.
This book isn’t my usual wheelhouse, I’m not generally much of a romance reader and it’s quite a bit steamier than I expected, but it explores relationships, personality and social differences, family dynamics and consent in a way that’s refreshing and unexpected. At its heart is understanding, communication and acceptance. I can’t wait to read what Hoang writes next. 5/5 stars ⭐️

Review: Black Klansman

Review: Black Klansman by Ron Stallworth

This is a fascinating story — a black detective who infiltrates the KKK in early ’70s Colorado Springs. Honestly that was the biggest draw for me, I grew up in CS and was truly interested in that aspect of the story, as it’s certainly not a story I’ve heard about my home town, nor really expected. The undercover investigation and the dealings with the various KKK members was interesting but I would have liked to have more. It just sort of ended without any resolution, no followup, no afterward about what became of those Klan members or the Organization in Colorado.
Good premise, sort of lacked a culmination I think. 3/5 stars ⭐️
