About THE MUSIC OF TEMPTATION:
Margot Duke can’t keep her long-distance relationship alive any more than she can the cells that are supposed to be taking center stage in her PhD thesis. Both seem to be suffering an inexplicably long and drawn-out death, and she’s spent more than enough time fretting about it, without any solution in sight.
It figures that the one day she chooses to pack it all in and stop caring is the day she meets Jonathan Young.
Jonathan swings through town with his band, just long enough to knock Margot off her feet, and leave her feeling a little giddy in his wake. The encounter proves once and for all that her inter-continental love affair is over, but can she really stomach the idea of starting another one right on its heels? And with the darling of the indie rock world at that?
THE MUSIC OF TEMPTATION Storyboard:
Can I just start out by saying how much I love that cover? Verity Jacobs is 2/2 when it comes amazing covers and as someone who is proud they don't choose books or judge them based on cover, this is pretty awesome and unique. Of course with a great cover you've got to have a great story and I think Verity Jacobs did a wonderful job at portraying an intense relationship in a small period of time.
I first met Margot in The Science of Attraction and even then she was embroiled in a dying relationship with her long distance boyfriend Eric. The book opens with her still in this relationship she's trying to shed when she meets someone who makes everything she thought she needed obsolete. I like Margot. She's got a good head on her shoulders and she's intelligent. Jumping into some sort of relationship with someone who she's going to be apart from again isn't her, but there's something about Jonathan that pulls her.
I liked Jonathan too. He's sweet, romantic, and a hunk. It's clear he's into Margot and it's not just for her body. He's as turned on by her mind and work as he is by her physical appearance. I think that's really sexy. The two of them had some amazing chemistry. It seemed like once they started going, they never stopped. Can a book be too sexy? There were times when I felt like there was too much sex, but then there'd be a scene where I would literally melt because it was so erotic and sexy without being over the top. So it's give and take.
I wasn't surprised by the dilemma Margot faced when it came to dealing with Jonathan and her work life. I was surprised by the dilemma she faced when she had to deal with things from Jonathan's past and his group's rising fame. I think she reacted the way any of us would have. I'm hoping Verity Jacobs will write more about the band and the lab. It was interesting to see two different worlds merge. I look forward to more shenanigans from Verity Jacobs. Hopefully Tek's book will be next!

About THE SCIENCE OF ATTRACTION:
Kate Ramsey is at the top of her game.
She’s the hot new recruit at the most prestigious research institute in Germany, and she’s determined to live up to the hype — even if it means working day and night. Stress relief comes in the form of a no-nonsense affair with her neighbor, who also happens to be the director of the institute. Who says sex should be anything more than a contract between two people who have other things on their mind?
So when Tom Baker saunters into her life, Kate is understandably upset to see this well-oiled machine splutter and seize. Tom is young and smart, and far too pretty for his own good. Kate can’t help but be drawn to him, even if giving in to the attraction would mean risking everything she’s worked for.
