The Bride Test

The Bride Test by Helen Hoang Book Summary

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.

- ??3 star

I didn’t rlly like it bc idc but I’m going to be judge the characters choices and I don’t agree with hiding ur daughter and situation also she Jets offended way to easily and doesn’t want to communicate also the whole plan to get him to confess his live is stupid the idea of a fake wedding like wow aren’t they supposed to be adults it sounds like something a teen would write for a fan fiction or something

- Absolutely loved5 star

I loved this book. It is such a unique view so different from my own. Seeing the life and thought process from such a different life was compelling and spellbinding. I fell in love with the characters and didn’t want the book to end. Couldn’t put it down!

- A slow burn capture of your heart5 star

- Excellent5 star

I read both this authors’ books back to back and both were great. I couldn’t put them down. Filled with true emotion and real problems they are gripping in the best of ways. I can’t wait for what comes next, and my only regret is not knowing Vietnamese. I highly recommend!

4.5 stars I absolutely loved The Kiss Quotient and couldn't wait to get my hands on The Bride Test. Helen Hoang did not disappoint and I continue to be impressed by her incredible writing! Khai and My/Esme have a very unconventional meet cute and situation. Their motivations for agreeing to participate are vastly different, but what they find along the way is so uniquely beautiful. Often when a forced proximity trope is used, things come together really quickly and ignite right away. I loved that Hoang let Khai and Esme's relationship build very organically for their personalities. Both are adjusting and learning and it was hilarious (and heartbreaking) to watch them struggle and tackle new experiences. The slow burn build up was very gradual and Hoang kept things perfectly simmering before letting things boil over. There was so much sweetness in the inexperience and wonder that these two discovered. Tears were definitely shed as they confronted their feelings (or lack of) and I felt like the epilogue suited them perfectly. I truly loved Khai and Esme together, but the real star of the book for me was Esme. Esme grew so much throughout the book and I appreciated reading about such a strong and driven heroine. She is clawing at the ground trying to rise above her lot in life and I respected her so much. Reading the author's note at the end brought tears to my eyes because it was not only refreshing, but it also rang so true to my own family's experiences. I'm sure my own cultural background influenced the impact this book had on me, but I think the theme of being truly accepted and loved for who you are and the hope of the American dream will ring true for many. All I can say is thank you Helen Hoang for staying true to the story that you wanted to write and I can't wait for more! *I voluntarily read an advance reader copy of this book*

I first saw the Bride Test book in a Relay store while I was at the airport. Written by a Vietnamese! Being Vietnamese, it seized my attention. Then I saw that her first book was The Kiss Quotient. So i downloaded it on my phone to read while on vacation. Couldn’t put the book down. Every little detail, I love! Especially when it was referring to Vietnamese culture. One down and I started her 2nd book, The Bride Test. As great as the first one. Now that I’m done with both books, I can’t wait for her 3rd book. I miss the characters already.
