Book Review | The Bride Test by Helen Hoang | Romance

Kindle | Amazon


Khai is a successful man in business but not so much when it comes to relationships so his mother is determined to set him up. She is in Vietnam when she notices Esme and asks her to marry her son. She finally decides she will do it to better the life of her daughter. The catch is that Khai is blindsided by her trip to America to stay with him and she will have to make him fall in love with her in order for this to work but Khai doesn’t believe he is capable of loving anyone because of his Autism. Is he or is it fear that keeps him at a distance?

Khai must try to make things work with Esme or his mother will not stop with the arrangements on his behalf but she agrees to stop if he truly tries and in doing so treat Esme like she is his fiancé. Can he pull this off so his mom will leave him in peace?


The Bride Test is an interesting take on an arranged marriage. I loved the representation of Autism within the story; showing a successful man and the relationship issues. The ponders the question, “What does it mean to love?”.

I would recommend this to anyone who is looking for more diversity in their reading or enjoys light romance novels.
