The Bride Test is a book I've been looking forward to reading for ages - basically since I finished reading The Kiss Quotient, I have been counting down the days until this author's next book released. Not quite as hot and steamy as The Kiss Quotient, the development of the relationship between Khai and Esme felt more slow burn in comparison.
Esme was a wonderful character. Struggling to support her family financially in Vietnam, she knows she has to take the chance the she is presented with when the unexpected opportunity to travel to America basically falls in her lap. Initially trying to better her own future and that of her family, it isn't long before she finds herself falling for the aloof and at times very frustrating Khai.
I loved Khai - he is so misunderstood at times by others, and he himself really struggled with understanding and comprehending what he was feeling at times. Quan is a favourite character - I hope we get his story at some stage, he was such a fantastic brother to Khai. I REALLY would have loved more at the end with Esme, Khai and Esme's family, there really wasn't any story with them all together, and I would have enjoyed some Khai and Jade interactions.
