Blog Tour: Review and Giveaway for The Science of Attraction by Verity Jacobs

I bet the cover of this book really caught your attention, huh?!  It sure caught mine and my interest in reading it only grew when I read the blurb. Who doesn't want to read about a romance between smart people!  By the time I finally got to sit down and read, I was so excited!  Read on to find out why and to win some awesome prizes for your self!

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.

First of all let me tell you how much I enjoyed this subject matter.  It's not often one reads about a brilliant heroine, or even hero for that matter.  Attractive, yes, but smart, no.  To have a romance take place in the settings of a lab was brilliant.  It felt like the environment was fresh and so hopefully what happened in the story would be fresh too.

I can certainly say the romance between Kate and Tom was hot.  As in I needed to fan myself to calm myself down.  They started mentally stripping each other from the time they met, and didn't stop even once they'd finally acted on their feelings. In fact, it seemed liked once they'd started they couldn't stop! Not that that was a bad thing.  It just seemed like their hormones took over!

I was a little torn about their relationship.  I thought the two of them were great together, but Kate held the position of power in the lab, while technically Tom was her employee. Kate was also in a kind of relationship, even if it wasn't labelled and there was some infidelity. I also missed how the story went from incorporating science, the lab, and the experiments to just Tom trying to Kate anywhere and everywhere he could.  And it's not Tom's fault.  It's not like Kate resisted.  The end did take me by surprise, just as it did Kate, Tom, and everyone else in the lab.  Of course with Kate and Tom so wrapped up in each other, it would have been impossible for them to see that coming.

Overall I thought the story was different and entertaining.  It was certainly steamy.  This was my first book by Verity Jacobs and I really enjoyed it.  I' m looking forward to reading whatever she writes next.  I do hope she sticks with this sort of theme, brilliant men and women.  It makes a nice change to have attractive people who are also intelligent and know how to have a good time.
