The Bride Test is a stand-alone sequel to Helen Hoang’s The Kiss Quotient. Basically, Khai is autistic and doesn’t believe he’s capable of love. So naturally, his mother goes to Vietnam and brings him back a potential wife, and the usual kind of humorous romantic awkwardness ensues.

I really liked The Kiss Quotient, so I was excited to find this in our local little free library, and it definitely counts as another cute romance! I still really like didn’t Hoang’s quick, humorous writing style, but I didn’t like this one quite as much as The Kiss Quotient, and to be honest I’m struggling with putting my finger on why.

I really liked both of the MCs separately, but I guess their relationship just seemed pretty stilted and then all of the sudden they were hot and heavy. I guess I just didn’t wholly feel the chemistry between them, and I was pretty disappointed that Esme waited until the VERY last moment to tell Khai something important, and then they just kind of glossed over it. But overall it was still an enjoyable read, and I’m definitely still excited to read book 3 about Quan. I’d recommend to romance fans looking for likable MCs with a little steam.
