My soulmate I am going to share this again closer to publication, but after my experience with The Kiss Quotient and how it quite literally changed my life, I just couldn t wait to read this And I gave a lot of thought to my rating Five stars for a cute smutty romance Really But these books are very special to me and I think, deep down, they are actually a lot than cute smutty romances.The Bride Test is about Khai, Michael s cousin in The Kiss Quotient He is Vietnamese American, autistic, and believes himself to be incapable of the emotions that matter Like grief Or love His overbearing but lovable mother decides to take action and find him a wife from Vi t Nam That s where Esme Tran comes in After getting pregnant young, she now desperately tries to support her daughter in the slums of Ho Chi Minh City She s mixed race, and has long wanted to go to America to find her father When C Nga offers to pay for her visa and trip to California in exchange for her trying to seduce Khai, she takes the opportunity Khai and Esme are fully fleshed out and adorable characters Khai is geeky and obsessive, but as we would expect from an ownvoices author, it does not come across in a faux quirky way His struggles and passion for his few interests are so genuine Qu n is also a real source of hilarity in this book the dynamic between him and Khai makes for some very entertaining parts.On the surface, Hoang has returned once again to sexual and romantic relationships where one character is autistic Khai is not a reincarnation of Stella from The Kiss Quotient but is very much his own person, and ASD affects him in unique ways Esme must respect his boundaries, just as falling for her is a learning experience for him The way these books bring sexiness to consent and mutual respect is wonderful And HOT.But I said on the surface because there s to this story as well Trust me when I say the author s note is an absolute must read The Bride Test is a sweet, cute, sexy and funny romance, but it is also the story of an uneducated Vietnamese immigrant coming to the United States This aspect is loosely based on Hoang s mother s experiences, and it is the tale of an incredibly brave woman defying the odds and clawing her way up from almost nothing Helen Hoang is making important waves, one sweet sexy romance novel at a time.Blog Facebook Twitter Instagram Youtube ARC

the tender emotions that are portrayed Once this beauty landed in my hands, I knew that there was no backing down of putting everything to the side and start it That s what Helen Hoang does to you once you get a small glimpse of her writing I remember last year how hesitant I was about reading The Kiss Quotient because of all the hype and love it kept getting When it comes down to novels that are hyped too much, I like to back away from them and maybe read them in a month or so once the hype calms down Thank the heavens I didn t, because I would have never encountered upon Helen s marvelous and unique way of putting so many in depth emotions to the page I would have never gotten to understand, that even individuals whom may be different in some way, socially, physically, emotionally anyway There is still a fighting chance of finding love, cherishing that love, and grasping it for dear life That s what Khai has demonstrated in this compelling romance novel that will have you running for tissues In my reviews, I really don t like to talk about the story plot of the characters I like to focus on the way the story plot comes to be and how it changes my mind and mood Helen does so by implying this new character, in which we came across in The Kiss Quotient during Stella s and Michael s story Khai That intriguing and mysterious autistic young man, that had picked my interest from that small glimpse we got of him His way of living is structured, has a routine that he follows every single day and should not be tempered with From the point of view of his family such as his mother, brother Quan whom shall be brought up in a moment , and his sister Vy whom shall also be brought up in a moment he is a simple man who enjoys his lifestyle as an accountant, takes his shoes off once he arrives to his two bedroom home and enjoys the feeling of his old carpet against his feet It s the little things that one would not be able to understand why they are so important in which in that unique side of him, his extended family never understands Emotions is something that Helen touches a lot when it comes to Khai He does not come to a realization that, even though he states he cannot comprehend emotions in general anger, happiness, sadness, disappointment, and love he truly is a strong human being whom expresses all those feelings That s when M , aka Esmeralda, aka Esme comes along A twenty three year old young lady from Vi t Nam whose dreams had to take a pause because life came in the way Supporting her mother, grandmother, a special someone who shall not be named for the sake of spoilers, is what M had been doing before she encountered upon Khai s mother whom was looking for a bride for him She is instantly drawn to M and offers for her to come to the states for the summer and try to seduce her son, Khai M of course has to think about it because she has to support her family But after a very thorough decision, she decides to accept the offer and goes to the states to try and make Khai fall in love with her At first, meeting Esme with the circumstances he was put in by his mother, is not something Khai is pleased with She moves in with her, but he is also instantly drawn to her natural beauty Her eyes captivate him in the best of ways, making his body react in ways that have never acted before The attraction is there and it s beautiful to read that a gentleman such as Khai, whom does not believe he can ever love anyone, expresses these feelings towards Esme Strange, incomprehensible, beautiful woman She said the funniest things and smiled all the time His fingers itched to touch that smile, and he sipped away out of self preservation Weeks pass and Esme and Khai learn how to adequately be with each other That does not stop Khai s body from acting in a non gentleman way of course Which I find so endearing to read from the third point of view He knows he cannot deny that attraction, but he also knows that he shouldn t act upon it She was already a song that payed on endless repeat in his head If he started having sex with her, this thing would escalate into pure addiction, and what the fuck would happen when she left at the end of the summer Once feelings expand, that s when the struggles begin to form for Khai Things take a turn when Esme comes across wanting to have a life in America, a life in which she can set as an example for her next in kin Her dreams come back to life and want to expand and explore everything that is out there for the world to offer to her, but she knows that if she doesn t fight she will not get far That includes Khai s love towards her as well Overall, as previously mentioned Helen has created a story that has truly gasped my heart and pierced it with her words It made me cry, made me giggle, and made me swoon over the love and admiration Khai has towards M Stories such as this one are not found very often and that s why they need to be cherished in the best of ways Thank you so much to Berkley for being so generous with this advance copy And as previously mentioned, Quan and Vy better come next Vy s story should be mysterious to read because we really don t know much about her But Quan however sighs he is the rugged brother, with sexy tattoos that will have me drooling over him once Helen writes his story that s IF she does it wink wink Helen Hoang ARC galley

she could never change where she d come from.I didn t think I could love Khai Esme s story as much as Michael Stella s, but I did I m officially fangirling hard over Helen Hoang This was a story that I easily was swept away by I completely lost track of time and obligations That is what made this a phenomenal read for me.I don t know why but I really love when the romance doesn t come so easy for the main characters When a character faces challenges that most people don t, it makes the journey infinitely interesting Khai is Michael s from The Kiss Quotient cousin He too, has Asperger s as Stella did from book one, but I would say they aren t on the same spectrum Khai s mother goes off to Vietnam to find her son a bride She worries that he will be alone for the rest of his life unless she steps in to play cupid for him She meets Esme, by chance, and is so impressed by her that she offers her an all expense paid trip to San Francisco, where she will spend a couple of months trying to get close to Khai, which will hopefully end up with a wedding.While Khai and Esme may have come from two different worlds, they really do end up being true soulmates Khai is set in his ways Likes his routines He doesn t think he needs a woman Khai doesn t believe he has a heart, and this stems from tragic losses from his past He s internalized a lot of his pain and having Asperger s, doesn t make it easy for him to understand his feelings.Esme comes from very impoverished conditions She works as a hotel maid in Vietnam, to help support her family Meeting Khai s mother and being offered a trip to San Francisco was almost too good to be true to Esme, but she has an honest soul and marrying someone just to get a green card to be able to stay in the U.S was not something she could ever go through with Her plan was to find her American father, who left Vietnam before she was born and gain citizenship that way But, when she sees Khai for the first time, there is no denying her heart was beating for him Poor Esme battles with insecurities She thinks being poor and not having a college education, make her an unsuitable match for Khai.Their relationship starts off awkward but eventually strong attraction takes hold and Esme is falling hard for Khai, but he truly believes he is incapable of loving anyone else, and so the angst ensues I loved the relationship between Khai and his older brother Quan, who was always there for his brother He took it upon himself to help Khai maneuver through some challenges that he was not equipped to handle on his own You can t help but root for this couple to find a way to overcome their challenges and end up in a happily ever after that they truly deserved I was so sad when I got to the end of the story because I wasn t ready to say goodbye to

companion to her world that would not only feature a male lead with autism, though would not be quite like what we experienced with Stella, but would be equally diverse, too And I really did enjoy being inside Khai s head When he wasn t breaking my heart, that is Esme, too, was a wonderful heroine Strong and determined but taking chances, and risks, not for personal gain or, rather, not only for it but for her family She didn t need a rich man She just needed someone who was hers.The conflicts in this story, Khai s belief that he s unable to feel emotion and, conversely, his inability to handle soft touches and how instead he needs to be handled firmly, held tightly , and Esme s self worth as an uneducated immigrant, feel genuine and real and reading the author s note helps to explain why these characters resonate so strongly Khai s brother, Quan, is a character I want to know about, too, because he all but leapt off the page at me Plus, yeah, I want It was easier to keep people at arm s length when it was for their own good instead of his That way, he got to be a hero instead of a coward.However, I ll admit that this read didn t consume me the way THE KISS QUOTIENT did While I so loved when these two got together hell, even the build up and the way Esme s presence wreaked havoc on Khai was fabulous , even if they weren t yet on the same page, even if they had yet to divulge all their secrets, it was something of a slower start, and as much as I loved these characters, I think I still wanted I did love the epilogue, though, which I thought to be a much reasonable ending after all the dramatic excitement just before the final chapter But that s all I m saying He was strange and tactless and very possibly an assassin, but when she looked at his actions, all she saw was kindness.Should you read this Absolutely Will it overtake your love for the THE KISS QUOTIENT To each their own It s definitely a sweet, funny, swoony, and totally worthy addition to the author s

America would give them the life she wanted for them She just didn t expect to fall in love.These two weren t perfect people, but they were perfect for each other I loved how she wanted Khai s consent

thorough review that adequately suffices to the level of pure awe and bliss I was left to wildly fan my heated face with every cliff diving, swoon worthy scene This will no doubt be an understated effort to try and express how much I laughed, cried and honestly beamed with a pathetic grin afterwards all due to how much Esme and Khai leapt off the page with every detail belying a realism to the depth of their characters down to the most endearing quirks that subtly paints them with a relatable authenticity They were both twined with a delicate attention that spoke to the heart of Vietnam representation, a class divide that illustrated the challenges of immigration with the intersection of single motherhood, and the lightning struck blaze of falling in love amidst the tension of withheld secrets and sex positive conversations featuring a return of a beloved character Helen is honestly becoming the preeminent author of the new adult romance genre and she is trailblazing a refreshing perspective that is easy to gravitate towards and throw a wad of cash at whatever whispering WIP she has stashed away for a future release There s no escaping that the Bride Test was written with a care genuinely reflected to render overdone tropes beyond just the essentialist selling point of the inevitable will they or won t they It is so much as the essence of this tale is also devoutly feminist even with the prospect of an arranged marriage, and it subverts that into Esme s coming of age as she navigates the many limitations of what could have easily defined her with boxes of incomplete stereotypes And with Khai who is guilt ridden to push away with the projection of unreciprocated feelings, we see his evolution of coming to terms and realizing that even if he
