Waiting On Wednesday ... The Bride Test

Waiting On Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Jill at Breaking The Spine that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

This week's pick is The Bride Test by Helen Hoang

Here is the Goodreads synopsis 
Khai Diep has no feelings. Well, he feels irritation when people move his things or contentment when ledgers balance down to the penny, but not big, important emotions—like grief. And love. He thinks he’s defective. His family knows better—that his autism means he just processes emotions differently. When he steadfastly avoids relationships, his mother takes matters into her own hands and returns to Vietnam to find him the perfect bride.

As a mixed-race girl living in the slums of Ho Chi Minh City, Esme Tran has always felt out of place. When the opportunity arises to come to America and meet a potential husband, she can’t turn it down, thinking this could be the break her family needs. Seducing Khai, however, doesn’t go as planned. Esme’s lessons in love seem to be working…but only on herself. She’s hopelessly smitten with a man who’s convinced he can never return her affection.

With Esme’s time in the United States dwindling, Khai is forced to understand he’s been wrong all along. And there’s more than one way to love.
I loved Helen Hoang's The Kiss Quotient so much that I was obviously thrilled to find out that there would be a companion novel set in the same world.

The Bride Test features some characters mentioned in The Kiss Quotient (and I am hoping for a cameo or two) but otherwise seems like it could be read on its own. If it is anywhere near as adorable and fun as The Kiss Quotient it'll be a perfect summer read!

The wait for this is long but it just gives everyone who hasn't read The Kiss Quotient plenty of time to join the rest of us in (im)patiently waiting for Khai and Esme's story.
Expected release date - May 7, 2019

I love comments. Thank you for stopping by my blog and thank you even more for leaving me a comment.

I have decided to make this an awards free blog. I appreciate the gesture, and love that you thought of my blog, however I simply can't pass them along as required.
