Stella Lane is incredible at her job. She gets promotions, and bonuses. It is her life. Stella Lane is also on the spectrum of autism and diagnosed with Aspergers. She does not know how to date, kiss, or be intimate. She wants to "fix herself" so she hires a professional escort to teach her how to be in a relationship. She hands him a checklist of all the things she wants to learn. (LOL! This book is the perfect amount of steamy!) She goes on a journey of self discovery and maybe learns how to fall in love along the way. I loved this fun, quick read!
“This crusade to fix herself was ending right now. She wasn't broken. She saw and interacted with the world in a different way, but that was her. She could change her actions, change her words, change her appearance, but she couldn't change the root of herself. At her core, she would always be autistic. People called it a disorder, but it didn't feel like one. To her, it was simply the way she was.”
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...
“She had a disorder, but it didn’t define her. She was Stella. She was a unique person.”
