Summary: 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 crave all of the other things he's making her feel. 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...
Review: What I am loving about all these "romance" novels lately is that they are real and have characters that you can identify with. No one needs rescuing in that old traditional way but instead needs a little help with self-realization. The sex isn't forced and is natural and well in the case of Helen Hoang's books, it's HOT!! 

It is also great because her lead characters have something unique about them but it's really what makes them that much more enjoyable. Take Stella, she's so into her work that she'll go into the office on a Saturday without thinking that maybe she should be doing something else. She's a bit awkward socially but is getting a ton of pressure from her mom to date and find a guy. So with her being socially awkward, it makes dating hard for her. That is until she decides to hire a male escort. Using her math skills, she finds the perfect one. Enter Michael Phan. He's sexy, polite and really does make her knees buckle a bit. Michael isn't perfect though, he's got his own issues he's grappling with and trying to figure out. 

I mean let's be honest with these books you know they will end up together but the journey to get there is a fun ride. That's not to say that these characters don't have issues and obstacles but even then you know they'll figure it out. 

I really can't wait for her next book in the series because I'm sure it'll be just as hot!
