Synopsis : Stella Lane thinks math is the only thing that unites the universe. She comes up with algorithms to predict customer purchases — a job that has given her more money than she knows what to do with, and way less experience in the dating department than the average thirty-year-old.
Stella Lane thinks math is the only thing that unites the universe. She comes up with algorithms to predict customer purchases — a job that has given her more money than she knows what to do with, and way less experience in the dating department than the average thirty-year-old.
It doesn’t help that Stella has Asperger’s and French kissing reminds her of a shark getting its teeth cleaned by pilot fish. Her conclusion: she needs lots of practice — with a professional. Which is why she hires escort Michael Phan. The Vietnamese and Swedish stunner can’t afford to turn down Stella’s offer, and agrees to help her check off all the boxes on her lesson plan — from foreplay to more-than-missionary position…
Before long, Stella not only learns to appreciate his kisses, but to crave all the other things he’s making her feel. Soon, their no-nonsense partnership starts making a strange kind of sense. And the pattern that emerges will convince Stella that love is the best kind of logic…
I read the first 100 pages of this book, the last chapter ended on 112 so I decided to finish the chapter rather than end mid-chapter. And boy do I have some thoughts on this. This will NOT be spoiler free so read under the cut at your own peril. And again these are just my opinions and how I felt reading the book, so take it with a grain of salt ‘kay.
Okay, so I am going to give it another shot at the read along thing.
A couple of months ago I had been perusing through Barnes & Nobles for my next read when I saw someone trying to reach a book on a high up shelf and I offered it to help her get it. She accepted and when I saw what book she wanted (I believe it was Six of Crows I can’t quite recall) I told her that she should totally get it because I loved the characters.
She smiled and suggested that I pick up November 9 because it was one of her favorites. I said cool and added it to my pile. Which was then added to a corner in my room with the rest of my TBR.
With November almost here I thought ‘hey why not read a book about November’. So here I am, reading November 9th.
My goal is to do this in only 3 check ins, meaning reading at least 100 pages every ‘reading along thoughts’ post. I am starting today so I will be posting my thoughts on the first 100 pages today. I am coming to this with an open mind as I have head good and bad things about it.
