Helen Hoang ✓ 5 Summary

The Bride Test Read & Download Ç 5 S Seducing Khai however doesn’t go as planned Esme’s lessons in love seem to be workingbut only on herself She’s hopelessly smitten with a man who’s convinced he can never return her affectionWith Esme’s time in the United States dwindling Khai is forced to understand he’s been wrong all along And there’s than one way to love. my initial reaction after finishing this was to gush about how cute the story is i love love love the diversity of characters and the autism representation i absolutely adore khai with every fibre of my being and seeing him grow was such a rewarding feelingthat being said i couldnt ignore a tiny nagging poke at the back of my brain after taking some time to think about it im not uite sure i adore this as much as i thought i did i still love khai and i think his character is someone who desperately needs to be written in the book world but its how everyone else acted towards him that i didnt like i felt like they were being extremely manipulative when it came to khais feelings and getting him to marry i get that sometimes people need an external push to get them out of their heads but i thought the story tried to showcase that manipulation in a positive if not loving way i dunno im kind of conflicted about it might change the rating back to 4 stars if i decide its not as problematic as i currently think it 35 stars

ARC provided by Berkley in exchange for an honest review It felt too big At the same time it didn t feel like enough The Bride Test is the most anticipated sopho novel from Helen Hoang AKA the goddess who we do not deserve and who gifted us The Kiss uotient And this book is following a couple of characters who we originally met in that debut I didn t love this installment as much as I did The Kiss uotient but I still think that this book is a treasure and that Helen Hoang is a gift to the worldAnd like The Kiss uotient this is an ownvoices novel Helen is Vietnamese and is Autistic And one of my favorite things about this book is seeing the difference of Stella from The Kiss uotient and the main character of this book s Autism I think people just like to group marginalized people together and act like their experiences are all the same and this author does such a wonderful job at truly showing the Autism spectrum and how vast it truly is This book has a completely different Autistic main character because everyone s experiences are different and I truly loved it than I have words to express in this review Khai Vietnamese Autistic Michael s cousin from The Kiss uotient living in California and completely happy being on his own especially after losing someone very close to him when he was younger Even though that loss has made him think that he is incapable of love Esme Biracial Vietnamese and white living in Vietnam as a cleaning woman when Khai s mom travels there to try to see if she can find a woman who would be compatible with her son And Esme accepts because she is a single mom living in poverty with her own mother and grandmother and she thinks this is an opportunity to give them and herself a better life Khai s mother promises her a summer in California where she can see if she can make Khai fall in love with her and marry her but if not she will return back to her family But with this set up the power imbalance always is at the forefront I always was uestioning Esme and her feelings because she has so much at stake Also Esme doesn t tell Khai about her daughter for far too long and that also felt extremely bad to me And it s always hard for me to root for a romance that is founded on a power imbalance and then also have it harboring such a big secret especially after the two individuals are choosing to have sex Now I will say that the author does such an amazing job at putting consent at the forefront of this story constantly yet I still could never find my footing on this shaking ground And because of this I can t give this than four stars I will say that besides always putting consent at the forefront this story has a lot of other amazing elements Like just seeing Esme in a foreign country doing whatever it takes to make a better life for her loved ones and seeing her getting the education of her dreams I am soft and so happy My favorite part of this book was easily the acknowledgements where Helen really shares about her personal life and her mother s personal experience being an immigrant and coming to American in search of a better life I shed so many tears at how beautiful and powerful these final words were and it truly was the cherry on an already amazing ice cream sundae Also much like The Kiss uotient the family in this book is everything uan plays such a major roll in this story and honestly was the shining light for me And I am counting the days until we get his book next But this is a story about loss and love yet also healing and becoming the person you want to be no matter the circumstances We get to see both Khai and Esme dealing with their own traumas and healing separately but we also get to see them building something really beautiful together a future where they can be accepted and happy And seeing them realize they were worthy of that love and acceptance all along So damn beautiful My heart works in a different way but it s yours Overall I just love being in Helen Hoang s world From the important elements and themes to the beautiful diversity and inclusion to some of the steamiest and most romantic scenes ever these books are just really easy to fall in love with I hope she never stops writing and I hope Berkley signs her for five books after these five because she is a gift to the world Blog Instagram Twitter Tumblr Youtube Twitch The uotes above were taken from an ARC and are subject to change upon publicationContent and trigger warnings for depiction of grief talk of loss of a loved one abandonment and some talk of one s bodybody issues that I think could potentially be a little triggering Buddy read with Kathy from Kathy Trithardt Julianna at Paper Blots
