I received a free ebook copy of The Bride Test from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

Khai is autistic, and he believes that he is incapable of love. When his mother introduces him to Esme, a potential bride from Vietnam, he is assuaged by her promise that this will be her last attempt to meddle in his relationships.

Having really enjoyed The Kiss Quotient, I looked forward to reading The Bride Test. This was a really cute romance, but it fell flat in comparison. It was also--I don't know--kind of stressful! Khai and Esmerelda live together for a few months with the intention of deciding whether to get married. Esmerelda is hiding the fact that she has an *entire* child (back in Vietnam) the whole time because she thinks that Khai won't approve. It's... fine, in the end, but perhaps not my idea of the best foundation for a relationship.

The Bride Test: cute, but stressful.

I devoured this book. I'm glad Hoang went the direction she did with the story. My/Esme is a fascinating character with depth and heart. I was rooting for her to end up happy no matter what that meant. And watching Khai figure out the pieces of his brain made me literally cry. I'm not sure I agreed with his mother's method here, though. ( )

I loved this book so much! My roommate recommended it after I gushed over 'The Rosie Project'. This is similar, but MUCH steamier, hehe. I loved Esme's determination and I felt like her reactions and thoughts were totally understandable. Khai frustrated me somewhat and I felt like the ending went so quickly compared to the build up, but it's definitely a great read!

The minor characters, like Quan, Vy, and Co Nga were enjoyable as well even though there wasn't a lot of back story provided for them. There was one sub plot that I felt was resolved too quickly and neatly, but it's still a great feel-good read with some pleasant twists and turns along the way. ( )

Emily Woo Zeller does a remarkable job of the voices and in building suspense. Sometimes I thought her breathy voice was a bit overdone, but it worked! She probably made the books twice as interesting, as the plot line is quite thin, but jazzed by a different context with one of the characters having high level autism. It reminded me how well told The Kiss Quotient was. ( )
