    Fans of The Kiss Quotient will absolutely love it

    ⭐️⭐️⭐️ The premise of The Bride Test was engaging and the plot developed at a good pace, but the story itself fell a little short for me and I just can’t quite put my finger on what was missing... Maybe it lacked depth... I don’t know... I did like it - in fact, I preferred it to The Kiss Quotient (the first book in the series) - but I didn’t love it. Anyhow, I did enjoy the characters; Esme’s optimism and perseverance were especially endearing. And Khai had his own brand of awkward, sweet and kind of adorable - in a very manly way, of course. Although I don’t think I’ll be carrying on with the series, fans of The Kiss Quotient will absolutely love The Bride Test and I’ve no doubt it will be an extremely popular read. ***ARC generously provided by Atlantic Books, via NetGally, in exchange for an honest review*** #TheBrideTest #NetGalley

    A fun, sexy, easy read!

    I loved the Kiss Quotient and this was a good second book. Admittedly, I preferred Kiss Quotient and I didn't really enjoy the end section of this book as much as I thought I would when I was reading it but overall it was an easy, enjoyable read. I can't wait for book 3 and it's already been added to my Goodreads TBR!

    Great read!!!

    I can't recommend this book enough. I read it so fast, I couldn't wait to know what would happen next. Funny and thoughtful, I really felt the characters struggles and life through each word and each page. Helen's done it again: I can't wait to read more of her work.

    Enjoyable but not as good as her first novel

    Esme Tran is a poor single mixed-race mother living in the slums of Ho Chi Minh City, cleaning toilets for a living and sharing a tiny apartment with her mother, grandmother and daughter. One day cleaning a toilet in a fancy hotel she strikes up a conversation with one of the ladies using the bathroom which results in a fairy-tale offer - come to the US and meet the woman's son and hopefully get married. Esme jumps at the chance of a better future for her daughter and the opportunity to possibly find her American father, Phil. Khai Diep has problems expressing emotions the way others do, especially after the tragic death of his best friend a decade ago. A tax genius he nevertheless exasperates his traditional mother who desperately wants him to marry a good Vietnamese woman and have lots of lovely grandchildren. Khai doesn't have the heart to tell his mother than he can't love anyone - he just doesn't have the capability but forced by his domineering mother to play host to Esme for several months, and to squire her to three family weddings, he comes to find this strange woman oddly fascinating. I really liked Helen Hoang's previous novel, The Kiss Quotient but this book just didn't resonate with me in the same way, maybe because Esme and Khai both, in different ways, found it hard to understand their environments and were too similar in that respect? Also I didn't really click with either character, not in the way I empathised with Stella Lane in the last book. Overall, this was an enjoyable read, a bit like Crazy Rich Asians meets The Kiss Quotient but didn't have that extra wow factor of the first book. I received a free copy of this book from the publisher via NetGalley in return for an honest review.
