Title: The Bride Test (The Kiss Quotient #2)
Author: Helen Hoang
Release Date: May 7, 2019
“Em yêu anh yêu em. Girl loves boy loves girl.”
Another wonderfully fluffy romance put me in a great reading mood. It seems like these Rom-Com stories are going to save my Spring and I’m not mad at it. The Bride Test is a companion story to Helen Hoang’s debut, The Kiss Quotient. We follow Khai, who hasn’t had a long-term relationship, much to his mother’s chagrin. So she takes it upon herself to find Khai a bride. Enter Esme Tran, a Ho Chi Minh City transplant looking for answers of her own in American, but she’s not opposed to finding love along the way.
I loved Khai and Esme as main characters. I really felt like I got to know them individually, before the relationship. So I was able to route for them on their own journeys, and as a couple. And having family be such a central theme for each character is always a plus in my book. I loved Esme’s family and her complete devotion to them. Quan, Khai’s brother, is such a scene stealer and I loved his well-meaning mother as well.
There’s a ton of drama right off the bat that make this book un-put-downable. It’s so entertaining and such a fun time. I can’t wait to see what’s up next for this cast of characters!
