Modern romance is all about building the world the writer wants to inhabit. A world in which consent rules and equity is the standard. A world in which differences in race, culture, neurodivergence, socioeconomic background, and a host of other things are not insurmountable obstacles, but rather merely parts that make a person whole.
Helen Hoang's Kiss Quotient book trilogy exemplifies this world-
building. The books are plain sweet. And cute. And readable. The first two, especially, are a bit on the steamy side, but who doesn't want a bit of steam with their love story?
One of our favorite past-times (other than reading or listening to romance, of course) is scrolling through different editions of the books we love, and as we were scrolling the book covers in this series, we stumbled upon the German editions. They are so dreamy and vintage’y, and that is how this month's colorway, Kiss Quotient, was born.
