From the USA Today bestselling author of The Kiss Quotient comes a romantic novel about love that crosses international borders and all boundaries of the heart... 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.… (mais)

I was one of the many that fell in love with The Kiss Quotient and I couldn't wait for Helen Hoang to release her next book. I was even more excited to find The Bride Test on audiobook because listening to the book was an amazing experience on a whole new level. My headphones rarely left my ears as I was determined to find every opportunity to listen to it. It was quite a ride, to say the least. I agree with every single review calling this book a masterpiece and I am so happy that I found a new favorite author. Helen Hoang has taken the romance genre in a new, innovative direction and I simply cannot get enough of it. I recommend this to anyone and everyone, no questions about it. Excuse me while I immediately hit "play" again. ( )

Khai's mother has decided that it is time for her son to get married and give her grandchildren, so when she is on a trip to Vietnam and stumbles across My cleaning a restroom, she strikes up a conversation and decides that My is perfect for her son. She invites My to spend the summer with Khai and try to make him fall in love with her. My already has a child but decides to leave her with her mother for the summer, and goes to stay with Khai. As Khai and My learn to navigate through their arrangement, they both get more than they bargained for.

When I first started reading this story, it made me a bit uncomfortable. My was very naive and Khai's only thoughts and feelings seemed to revolve around sex. Even for someone who is autistic, he seemed a bit shallow, but as the story progressed, more of his feelings are shown, especially through his conversations with his brother who supplies some of the reasons for Khai's processes, portraying Khai's autism in a realistic manner. My's growing confidence as she learns more about Khai gradually brings him out of his shell. Overall, this is a sweet romance that tackles some tough issues very gently. ( )

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. ( )
