What a fun read! I loved this book! See what you think and pick it up for yourself.
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.
About Verity Jacobs:
Verity Jacobs is a reformed scientist, who left the lab when she fell in love with writing about love. She lives with her husband and baby girl in London, where she dreams by day and writes all night long. She is addicted to the heart flutters and stomach flips of the fictional romance world.
Have you ever started reading a book and when you HAVE to put it down to attend to real life duties it just drives you nuts until you can get back to the chapter where you left off? Yep, that was this book. I was writing the rest of the story in my head until I could get back to reading it. Thankfully, my story was no where near as good as Ms. Jacobs. This is a fun read, an enjoyable story that is well written.
What a refreshing story plot in this book, one I have never read before. The main character, Kate Ramsey, is a scientist and works in a research lab in Bonn, Germany. Kate is a very good scientist with a growing reputation for her work and has an excellent team from all over the world working with her. She is secretly dating (if you call it that) her boss Rob, but it’s more like being on call for when he needs sex. Problem is that Rob is VERY well known and his reputation can help or hurt her future. She really needs more than what Rob gives her. She deserves more. I enjoyed the science theme and discussions about the research and work the team does. It was never “over my head” or too much to understand. The research team got along well and seemed to be a type of close knit group that was fun to work with.
Enter Tom Baker. Hot, gorgeous, smart, new scientist who has been hired to join the team. Kate tries very hard to keep her composure while working with Tom. Ms. Jacobs does a wonderful job of showing how Tom effects Kate when he is around. Kate must be careful because she is secretly dating her boss who can make her break her career. But her feelings for Tom make her question her relationship with Rob. The story continues as Kate tries to make herself happy and handle the growing explosion with Rob.
Kate has Skype conversations with her sister that are fun to read. They are real conversations among sisters. Her sister helps her see things clearly and becomes her conscious. At one point, Kate goes home to London for a bit to clear her head as things get to be too much. The dialogue amongst the family is enjoyable. Meanwhile there is trouble brewing in the lab back in Germany. Tom and the team work hard to help Kate and keep everyone’s job safe. But will their actions be enough when Rob starts to see what’s happening?
I loved this book and if this is Verity Jacob’s first one then I can’t wait for the next one. Light and refreshing with hot sex scenes (very hot scenes), you can’t go wrong. The sex was respectfully written and very hot indeed! I totally enjoyed this book cover to cover!
