The Kiss Quotient

Two lonely halves found comfort together.

By Helen Hoang | ⭐️⭐️⭐️ (3/5)

Stella Lane, an econometrician and has autism was trying to learn how to be good around people, most especially with relationships. Hence, she hired Michael Larsen, an escort, to teach her how. First, to be how good in bed but later on ventured on relationship particulars.

I duly can comprehend with Stella’s situation and how she could be around people in her own right. Given her challenges, it is also difficult to get by being her usual self without bewildering anyone.

My 7th book for 2022

I appreciate the books discussion questions that made it easier to comprehend on what I have read and here are some points:

Philip James, Stella’s co-worker, had expressed his liking to Stella after years of working together and she was suprised that Philip was asked out by an intern. In retrospect, men are the usual initiators. Women are usually at the receiving end. Times are changing, innovating even, when a woman ask a man out nowadays it is not a big deal, it should not be a big deal. We have come to know our abilities, confidence, and times have taught us to be more assertive.

On the other hand, Michael issues with his father – a swindler – had definitely affected his disposition, leaving him insecure about his stature and his abilities that also cost his relationship with others. I comprehend with his mother primarily; giving him the boost he needed, knowing what her child really is deep inside—even with the things he doesn’t even know about himself or doesn’t pay attention to. Michael’s mother played a great part to bring out his confidence and let alone make him try to accept his being to be also acceptable to Stella.

When you love someone, you fight for them in every way you know how.

If you can’t stand being with a woman who’s more successful than you, then leave her alone. She’s better off without you.

If you actually love her, then know the value of that love and make it a promise. That is the only thing she needs from you.

Stella and Michael’s differences are apparent. Love alone is not enough to make a relationship work. It takes patience, friendship, acceptance, and understanding combined. Relationships aren’t about rainbows and butterflies but also being committed to another person to make it work even through the toughest of times.
