Thank you to ReadersFirst for allowing me to get an ARC of The Heart Principle by Helen Hoang. My opinion is purely my own.

This is the third book in the Kiss Quotient series and I absolutely adored this book. From diverse rep to autism rep, this book was so beautiful and promoted self-love from within. Anna Sun is one of the most realistic protagonists I've encountered in a while and her story resonated with me and her struggles were written so well.
Her love interest, Quan Diep, is my dream man. Honestly, he was such a kind-hearted man and the entire book was me rooting for him and Anna.
This romance wasn't your usual love, feud, love. It had depth and real struggles that a lot of couples go through. It showcased this modernised reality and I felt heard when I read this book. It included sexual struggles, romance struggles, everything that other people go through.

Overall, I adored this book. I loved the cameos from Michael that appeared throughout the book.
