For review

My thoughts:
I knew I wanted this book when I heard what it was about. Stella is an ecometrician (no I have not heard that before) and has aspbergers. And she then hires an escort...yes, I wanted it then.

Stella is driven and loves her work. But her mother wants grandchildren, and then there is this coworker who is a real d*ck to be honest. But who has time for men! And kisses are yucky. Hey I hear you, touching people is icky! I relate. I like her, even if the road she decides to take is a bit strange.

Michael is an escort and at first I do wonder about his choices. Why does he do it? It takes awhile to find out, but then I do get it. It's an ends to a mean. And he is so sweet with her even if he does not know what to make of her and her proposition. 

Ok so it is obvious what the book will about then. Him learning her to be close *wink wink*. She starts to fall and he feels the same, but drama! He has issues too.

It was a sweet book. I really did not know what to expect considering, but yes it is sweet and they just fit together so perfectly. They are meant to be, even if it takes awhile for them to get that.

Conclusion:
I enjoyed it. It was sweet, passionate, funny and the perfect summer read.
 And it would make this amaaazing movie! They have to make one!!


Blurb:
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...
