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.
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 to crave all the other things he's making her feel. Soon, 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...
So many of my book friends have nothing but positive things to say about this book. I’ve seen it listed on several top reads list for 2018. I’ve been wanting to read but I was leery. Based on my history, I haven’t done well with “hype” books but I’m happy to report this book worked out it my favor!
Stella is autistic and I don’t ever recall reading a character with this diagnosis before and it was very refreshing. I used to work in the special needs feel and the author portrayed Stella very accurately which was a huge plus!
I really liked Michael because he stopped at nothing when it came to taking care of his family. He had such a heart of gold and I loved the way he loved and protected Stella and saw past her diagnosis, even when she couldn’t. *Swoon*
I listened to the audio book and the narrator, Carly Robins did such an AMAZING job with the story. Robins nailed all the side characters as well. I felt all the emotions the characters felt and I highly recommend this audio book!
