"The Kiss Quotient" Series by Helen Hoang

Bring Your Own Book

BYOB, the Bring Your Own Book Podcast, is back for Season 2 featuring your favourite bookworms Nikki, Kelly, and Tilly! Every episode we'll discuss the book we read and pair it with a drink inspired by the book. In this episode, we discuss Helen Hoang’s contemporary romance series, The Kiss Quotient, which features the following novels: “The Kiss Quotient”, “The Bride Test”, and “The Heart Principle”.  This episode's drink is a classic margarita! The main love interests of each novel, Michael, Khai, and Quan, all drink them in their backyard together in a sweet scene in The Heart Principle, and it just seemed like the perfect fun drink to sip and talk about this series! It’s made with tequila, triple sec, and lime juice, with salt on the rim. ** Content/trigger warnings include: intense subjects like discrimination due to neurodivergence, death of a loved one, emotional abuse, xenophobia, suicidal ideation, and sexual harassment. ** "The Kiss Quotient" by Helen Hoang: https://tinyurl.com/ptwx3hsh “The Bride Test” by Helen Hoang: https://tinyurl.com/ya6m88ft “The Heart Principle” by Helen Hoang: https://tinyurl.com/hhf9ctrh Want to support our little podcast?

#24 - The Heart Principle by Helen Hoang

2 Cents Critic

Tune in for Arthur’s thoughts on The Heart Principle by Helen Hoang. Her third #ownvoices contemporary romance stars Anna Sun, a violinist who seeks out a one-night stand after her boyfriend Julian announces that they should try an open relationship before making plans to tie the knot, and Quan Diep, the tattooed and motorcycle-riding cousin of Michael Larsen from the author’s debut novel The Kiss Quotient. Initially, Quan seems to fit the bill for a one-night stand, but maybe he’s actually qualified for much more…? This episode also includes topics like advocation for better disability representation in media, a recitation of a Frasier scene that showcases the eponymous radio psychiatrist in all his control-freak glory, and the numerous striking similarities between The Heart Principle and The Kiss Quotient—including the fact that Quan, like Michael, is always in Cinnamon Roll Mode. TW: Autistic and caregiver burnout, parental death, implicit mention of suicidal ideation National Suicide Hotline: 1-800-784-2433 Depression Hotline: 1-630-482-9696 Spoilers start at 12:00 The Heart Principle blog review: https://2centscritic.com/2021/09/05/my-2-cents-on-the-heart-principle-by-helen-hoang/ Good Word: Two articles about 9/11 Esquire’s “The Falling Man“ by Tom Junod - https://www.esquire.com/news-politics/a48031/the-falling-man-tom-junod/ Sports Illustrated’s “Things Are Going to Be Different Now“ by Shaker Samman - https://www.si.com/nba/2021/09/10/muslims-in-sports-after-9-11-daily-cover Reach out at email2centscritic@yahoo.com if you want to recommend things to watch and read, share anecdotes, or just say hello!

#23 - The Kiss Quotient by Helen Hoang (with Beth and Maddie of Off The Book Podcast)

2 Cents Critic

Tune in for a pod crossover as Arthur welcomes Beth and Maddie (Off The Book Podcast) onto the show for a review and recap of The Kiss Quotient by Helen Hoang (The Bride Test, The Heart Principle). If you want to hear them talk about a book that’s essentially a gender-swapped Pretty Woman starring an econometrician with high-functioning autism and a hapa male escort, you’ve come to the right place! Sorry about the unusually long runtime, but they had a little too much fun digressing into important topics like fuzzy bananas, their shared love of Chris Evans, and foods that are used as euphemistic references for female privates/orgasms. Spoilers start at 9:30 Good Word: • Maddie: Netflix’s Young Royals, “Future Nostalgia” by Dua Lipa • Beth: “If I Can’t Have Love, I Want Power” by Halsey • Arthur: The collective effort to combat the Texas abortion bill Reach out at email2centscritic@yahoo.com if you want to recommend things to watch and read, share anecdotes, or just say hello!
