The books work well as stand alones. In fact, in the second book the first book's main characters are only mentioned and "show up" once, if I remember correctly.
Btw, despite the first book's premise, it isn't any more graphic (or has more sex scenes) than the second one. It does have more scenes of a sexual nature, but they aren't graphic, more sensual/erotic/emotional. I don't know if that makes sense lol I don't want to spoil the book in case you change your mind. ;)
To me, who has next to no experience with people on the spectrum, it was very eye-opening to see someone's life on the spectrum from a female perspective - and I found it a gorgeous read overall. <3 (less)

So I've noticed that the plot summary is totally different from what it was two years ago, but no less enticing. When are ARCs going to be available? Because I am dying for some Quan time@.@.

Oh yes, it's Quan!

I sure hope this info is the real thing. I love Sabrina.

This is Quan’s book. Helen Hoang defines it as a “kind of a cross between a gender-swapped Sabrina and Say Anything”

THE COVER IS OUT

Quan's love interest is Chinese and has OCD/anxiety issues so obvs, I love it already ugh

'Yes. Quan is next. That's the book I'm writing now, and I'm trying really hard to give him a story that is worthy of him because I just love him to pieces. It's called The Heart Principle. It is kind of a cross between a gender-swapped Sabrina and Say Anything.'
