#BestBooksof2018 Day 4: Best Romantic Comedy! Blogmas

Hi dear friends,

Fourth day in my #BestBooksof2018 ! Today we will laugh and swoon because it’s romantic comedy time!

I swear my choice of the day is just an epic love story and you will see it back in some other categories because this book is just shy of absolutely perfect!

I recommend it when you feel down or you are back from work tired, outside it’s raining or freezing. You feel beat by life and are in need of some comfort and fuzziness.

This book should be recommended by doctors to fight against light depression and blue mood!

My winner of the day is

The Kiss Quotient by Helen Hoang

This story simply is a little gem. Essentially character driven, the writing is light, charming, funny and just right.

Stella is a touching female character. Stella is Asperger and it means that as much as she is brilliant with numbers and econometrics she really is socially awkward. She wants to do good but she does not get the clues most people get so effortlessly and react poorly in many situations.

She is oversensitive to noises, smells, lights and touch. I already knew this about autistic people but not the small details like seams scratching your skin.

Stella is a very determined young woman. She WANTS to overcome her fears.
When her mother asks for grand-children Stella is determined to satisfy her wish. She “just” has to get better at sex to be able to entice a potential mate.
What better way to improve than to have lessons by a professional escort right?

See you are smiling already! Gotcha!!! 😉 

This is truly a Pretty Woman in reverse here as Michael is broke and has to sell his body, unbeknown to his family to support all the bills.
Michael may be a “prostitute” he really is the perfect boyfriend I wish my daughter one day!

Special mention to the dialogs!

Stella being unable to lie and quite “direct” it gave some little gems, especially as Michael had no idea she was Asperger!

Here is one excerpt to give you an idea:

“You smell really, really good. What is it?”

Where was that scent coming from? It seemed to be everywhere on him, but too light. She craved a more concentrated dose.

“Michael?”

A funny look crossed his face. “It’s just me, Stella.”

“You smell this good?”

“Apparently. You’re the first to comment on it.”

“I want it all over me.” As the words left her mouth, she worried she’d said the wrong thing. That statement had sounded a little too personal, a little strange. Would he notice how strange she really was?

 

Now do tell me your favorite romcom read in 2018!

Thanks for reading!
